Did you fix the glitch I last posted about? I redownloaded the file and ran it with the exact same result as last time.

Sadly, not yet. I've had very limited time to make updates and i had to devote it to some game-breaking issues. I'll get a new build with graphics options and the texture fix in as soon as i am able.

I stumbled over here from the B12 forum, and I quickly had to register, just to bring up a plea.

Puuuulease gief turnbased option? (Altough I suspect that's a bit of a beotch with the moves that need to be charged up) I always thought that's one of the things that makes those games "non twitched based"

And of course it would be extra awesome if one could import fortresses  Well, hello there!

I'll try to make a linux version of my engine player, but it probably wont be until the voting ends. Also, I changed the download link to drop.io cause my server was getting a little bit hosed. Please use that instead.

When I launch the game I am taken to a window with what I assume is a menu (a sort of squashed white T in a blue bar with snow). I hit enter, I get another white rectangle. I hit enter again and I am taken to what seems to be the game, but all I see is blue with snow. So it seems like nothing is rendering. Is this because I'm using crappy integrated intel graphics? And is there anything I can do on my end of things to get it to work? From what I've seen you have a really great game here, I just wish I could play it  Concerned

Ok, having tried some more, I realised that the buffer clearing issue (or whatever it is) only ever appears when I press "n", which apparently takes me down one dungeon level. When going down as usual the graphics works as intended.

I play in full screen, which is glitchy. Messages and menus will be positioned in the upper left corner and occupy their normal window size, regardless of the actual screen size.

The game is ripe with potential, but I need drops and items. I also don't think the character progresses in level, right? So basically, basic and simple things to implement, and you've got helluva game here!  SmileyHand Thumbs Up Right

It seems appropriate to put this here (made for the Boxart sub-compo):

Liked: The liberal use of my graphics Hand Thumbs Up Left. The gameplay is spot on, just my kind of game. The animations are adorable, and excellently solve the assets short comings. In fact there are some clever improvisations to solve the many omissions from the supplied assets. Heavy doses of replay value, and looks like it would make a great full blown game.

Disliked: If I was being really picky, there are a few graphical glitches and it's a little rough around the edges. But I don't really have any solid complaints.

Conclusion: Definitely one of the front runners. Very good.

Thank you for your feedback, Oddball, you're a real trooper. I gotta go through and play all the entries myself when I have some free time this week.

Wow. This was the first game I tried from the entries and it set the bar pretty high for the follow-ups. The graphics are just amazing. You were able to squeeze so much life and juiciness out of those tiny sprites without betraying their style. I love it!

Unfortunately, my first experience of the actual game was a dungeon where the starting room has no connection to other rooms. It took time to figure out that it was a dungeon generator bug. Big Laff But the look & feel kept me trying. After a restart, everything worked like it's supposed to.

After a level or two, I started noticing that the combat starts to wear out a bit. I have no specific suggestion on how to make it more interesting. Possibly some item management or simple interactions with the environment (doors, chests, etc...)? I must admit that I didn't play exceptionally long so I might have missed some crucial mechanics.

Please do continue working on it. It's an outstanding achievement and one of the best entries IMHO.  Gentleman

This is frickin awesome! Reminds me of Egoboo, but 8-Bit. I would so love to see this on portables or more expanded into Consoles. I'd love this on my PSP or, now that the PS3 is closer to homebrew after being hacked, on the PS3! Or bring this to PSN! Multiplayer!

Keep up the great awesome work. Smiley

Can you tell us what engine/framework/libraries this is written in?

I absolutely LOVE the style!

It's written in my own engine/framework called "Substance" that is somewhat like Unity. It's based around a C++ 2d/3d/sound/networking engine and uses Lua as its main development language and has its own cross-platform IDE that can publish directly to multiple platofrms, currently Mac and Windows and web via a custom plugin (though that feature is a bit rough right now, hence Bitworld not havin a web version). I am also currently working on an iPhone/iPad export at this time. I hope to release it to the public in the near future.
