Theen, i decided to start new file and actually forgot i don’t have pyxel file ๐Ÿ˜€ Sooo… Bye bye main hero! I still trying to use Recuva for finding lost sprites but i am not sure if i made it. (21% and over 300k files. Png and one folder only…) Wish me luck guys!

Cottage – DEVLOG ONE

You was betrayed by humanity!

 

And not just onceโ€ฆ

So, you decided to move to small cottage in the woods. You decided to build your own small world. World without humans. World without betrayal.

Butโ€ฆ After few days, you figured out one weird thing. You are not alone! Now, you must defend your small world!

Aaaand, here is some making of! This time how i drawed and animated main character.

It was really time consuming so i am not sure if i release another videos before end of this LD.

Also, check original post on LDJAM site!ย 

 

Today, facebook reminded me some old ld pictures. Sadly they was on puu.sh so… Deleted. After that i started looking for alternative and found amazing software called SHAREX. It makes same things like puu.sh buth with much more features and settings (like choose where you want upload your images / files / texts. Also it have cool gif recording tool!

Look!


Framerate and quality is pretty decent. Also, there is great feature called drop file. It looks like this

If you set your own FTP, you can drop here literally EVERYTHING! (Off course, you can set up other things like url shortener, pastebin for text, imgur for images and much much more!)

So, i just want to share this with others!

I am in again!

Aaaand again! My least favourite theme won! ๐Ÿ˜€ But i think after some coffee with milk i will soon figure something!

But now something about me!

My tools!

  • Game Maker Studio 2
  • BFXR and freesfx.com for SFX
  • Music Maker Jam and/or freemusicarchive.org for music
  • Pyxel edit and paint.net (maybe little bit of gimp or blender. Depends on style) for graphic.

ORIGINAL POST ON LDJAM SITEย Please consider making updating posts here too!

Giving up… Again :D

This is third time in a row! ๐Ÿ˜€ And why? Well… My idea was again too complex for one man army like me. Also, i recently got repaired my Nikon D3100 So… Sorry guys. Next time i will surely make amazing game with (i hope) GMS2.

And if you make horror game and need some photos… Check result of my pinhole “tour” ๐Ÿ˜€

Feel free to use those photos or others from my gallery.

Here is some sneak peek.

All those photos was created today so… Acceptable by rules! ๐Ÿ˜€

 

Toilet last stand โ€“ Devlog 02

The zombie apocalypse has started. You decided to make base on safest room in house, the toilet. Why you ask? Because you have infinite water and toilet here…

DEVLOG 001

As i said before, i started pretty late so i am not sure if i make it. BUT! I just completed 1/3 core mechanics called “Life support”. So… Now i can enjoy watching how my character dies by hunger or thirst or just simply by owerwork.

So my dear little sadists, you can enjoy this gif from completed GUI :3

What next?

Now i need to start building “edit” mode.

How will edit mode works? Well… While scavenging you will find various items and you can place them in your room. Every item will have durability and you will ned collect scrap for repairing. Stay tuned! In my next (and probably last devblog) I will wrote more about scavenging system!

DEVLOG 001

I started pretty late this LD and i probably did not make it to the end. But i don’t give up yet! I at least created base mechanics (player moving). And started to working on core gameplay mechanics.

About my game…

 

Basics:

I planning to make survival game. You are in world filled with zombies and you must manage your needs, AND your room because you have only limited free space.

Your room with placeholder tiles

Scavenging

 

If you don’t have supplies which you need, you can go scavenging. I have this mechanics just on paper. You can choose how many hour you will scavenge. More hours = more rare items but bigger chance of wounding and killing yourselves. And more rare items, more room they will need.

 

Core mechanics

Well, you need to manage few things.

  1. Hunger
  2. Health
  3. Thirs
  4. Mental health

Mental health is very important part of game. You need to stay in good mental state. If is your mental state too low, you will commit sucide. You can scavenge and use items like newspapers ย (less space but only one use) or (for example) Wash mashine (you can use it every day but you will need much more space..

And, here is little gift…. I made bunch of sprites when i created my main character…

character_walk

So… Here is my basic set of gifs just for merging and recoloring ๐Ÿ˜€ (All hairs have idle and walk version so you can just overlay them.)

My personal reviews – 1

Thursday, September 1st, 2016 6:22 pm

In last post i asked for some tips for games. I got 5 so… There are my reviews!

Into the universe

Game about infinite space! I love this type of games :3

Pretty catchy game! I played this one over hour ๐Ÿ˜€ Game mechanics are pretty interesting! Sometimes enemy ships spawn one one place so i can’t really tell how many are there. But that is just minor flaw! Also, game don’t have many options. And you can’t really see how weapons shoots. I missed some pretty lasers ๐Ÿ˜€

summary:

You should play this one too! (If you have lots of time, this game is really catchy!)

The Swith – Workerย And The Operator

I put those games because both developers get exactly same idea ๐Ÿ˜€ Games are about call centers in old times. You just connect jacks to holes. This idea is great for mobile gaming! If one of them make android version, i will probably play it evere free time in bus!

Buuut…. I liked Operator more. Better sounds and more realistic.

summary:

Good small games!ย Without flaws or bugs but also without someย catchy game mechanics.

Free Afternoon

I really can’t say too much about this game ๐Ÿ˜€ Not because is bad, but because i thought it will be about pc and floppy disk but there was pretty funny plot twist so, enjoy it yourself!

summary:

My english is not that great but still. I enjoyed this game. But i did not played it for too long because i did not have free afternoon ๐Ÿ˜€

Sassy Salesman

I will be shockingly honest… From all those games, i enjoyed this one the most. Catchy tune, funny idea, great humor… Definitely one of my favourite games this ld and i hope there will be bigger tycoon style sequel. Also, i worked like salesman too. And if you think this is just humor, you are wrong. People are that dumb in real life ๐Ÿ˜€

summary:

I liked it. That is all. (I go to play again :D)

So, thankies for tips! If you are developer and want feedback written in horrible english, just leave comment! I still have mood for some horror stuff though… But i play everything!

 

 

I am IN! (as player :D)

I maybe did not finished my LD game, but still, i wan to play some interesting entries! So, for now, i have mood for:

  1. Retro tech games (real world tech, like vhs, old pcs e.t.c)
  2. Horror games!
  3. Stargate (i saw one little screen of stargate looking game so… bring it)

If you created/played something like that, please paste link in comments. Aaaand… If you just want feedback for your game… You can paste link too because ย i am generous ๐Ÿ˜€
