Cliche – POST MORTEM

It’s a fail but it was funny :D 

This game isn’t finished. It is “playable” but there is no end and monsters can’t be killed. 
This must be the shitiest submission ever done but I had to. By respect for my girlfriend to let me participate despite our busy weeked and for the work done (graphics!). 

At first I tried to simply focus myself on a classic WTF game but I quickly bored myself turning around with stereotypes. When suddenly I found The thing, a game, with only cliche ! 

 And here comes “She”. The all mighty and lovely Viking warrior, with a huge breast and a magic bow that throws fireballs (and other things). 
 You must help her to protect her igloo in antarctica against bad kamikaze zombies aliens villains. 

 

 

 

Why I failed ?

The project was too ambitious and with less than 10h of work, according to my actual skills, I could not hope for a better result.

I will do the next LD more seriously.

In fact I’m pretty happy to have experienced all of the pgtech workflow. It was a good test.

In an enhanced version I will add some laser beams and T-Rex. And maybe animations, sounds … and feedbacks and … dammit !

 

See you next LD ;)

So close !

Job done, this is the result of our mixed twisted minds:

The story of the most awesome goldfish ever! Play our game ;)

This week end was extremely nice, we’re proud of our baby, as it’s our first Ludum.

Can’t wait to test a lot of cool games !

Tomorrow, we’re going to have such a hungover…





As a bonus: Some crazy used and unused music samples from the game

What happened ?

That’s a good question.. Time flows as the creativity grows..

But anyways! Sprites are now almost finished, and our beloved hero has now a new face:

The charisma of Tony Montana, the anger of Rocky Balboa.

And now in action in its small fish bowl, training its escapeness in case some maybe upcoming dark events happen:

 

“We never saw something going that fast since the acting talent running away from Paris Hilton”  Times Magazine.

 

And now as an appetizer, music sample:

Looking foward for main course gameplay experience soon!

 

 

Here we are

“Once upon a time, in a small aquarium kingdom bowl, the prince of the goldfish who used to live peacefully found himself in trouble when it’s owner noticed it was a big big jerk.. The fight between the two worlds started, the human technology and knowledge against the survival instinct of the wild. Escape will be its master word, freedom will be its goal, ’til it will find the mighty sword of the doomy doomness, taking its revenge, and then rule the world ”

This could be an introduction to our project ! Well in fact, it might be only related to a goldfish..

After being joined slightly before the contest begins by Dr.Seal, another crazy ice floe guy, for music recordings and game conception, we started according to our idea to work on some incredible sprites. Joining you a concept art for our beloved aquatic hero.

 

Some epic soundtrack has been composed too, and looking foward developing and kick ass sound effects !

 

 

Jam, here we come!

Introducing our team for the first time to the Ludum, and feels as exciting as a first date, or a first attempt to get laid.

Three might be our lucky number as we’re three in our team.. like the musqueteers, like the Jackson 5 – 2, inseparable like the Baguette, the Saucisson, and the red wine. As you can guess with the last reference, we are… french, from Bordeaux (yeah, wine !)

The team:

  • Dr.Panda: Developer & Paint Engineer
  • Dr.Squirrel: Developer & Pint Killer
  • Dr.Pingu: Music, Noises & Cooking

Hope we can came up with something at least playable, obviously looking like a failed Picasso painting as we don’t have any designer or graphic artist.

Our toys:

  • Coding: AS3, Flashdevelop, Flashpunk, maybe Box2D
  • Graphics: Photoshop or Paint
  • Sound: Ableton Live 8

That’s all for the moment.. Wishing everyone to have fun, luck, and fun again.

Dr.Pingu ( °)>
