Pile O’ Pirates

July 30th, 2013 10:06 am

Unfortunately, we were not able to meet the mini LD 44 deadline. This was due to several factors, the main two being part-time work and windows drivers related casualties.


Though we did not finish Pile O’ Pirates in time to have a working game, we fully intend to complete it. So look out for progress updates and videos in the coming months.

Game Features so far

–        Zoomable 2D game

–        Selection/Movement of pirates constrained to boats.

–        Movement of Ship without screwing up pirates.

–        Saveable settings (Such as resolution and Fullscreen)

–        Over 300 styles of male only (as of now) pirates

–        Random name picking from list of popular male names.

Here are some screenshots of what we have managed to accomplish.

    I too did a pirate theme! one thing is it’s so hard to chose the scale of pirates, ship to ship or pirate fighting or a more trading economics of it…

    nice job on over 300 SPrites! and the drag to select …I couldn’t get my drag to select units working at all :(

    Good luck on the next one.

      Nice to see other people that like pirates.

      We have to agree it’s a really hard theme to plan out well.

      Sorry to hear you had trouble with drag and select. It was a fun, but challenging, problem to solve.

      Thanks, and good luck to you as well. :)
