At least I have something! I have ditched the other idea because I chose inappropriate tech! Let’s do this!
Punch Squad is about a gang of 4 rival thugs. You pick one, and end up controlling all of them. They punch each other in the faces every time they collide and they will rush at a point that you click on altogether regardless of what’s going on around! Your task is to bring your guy to victory by getting most points and watching your HP! Oh man, all that in 4 hours? Oh well, let’s make this happen! <3
Making an RTS about tiny pixel people that overgrow their settlements and have to move to attack their neighbouring populations! And again, and again…
37 hours left, I can make it!
I made a sketch of the general idea that is too big so I will cut all the features!
Also, I will stream when I have something cool to show! Hopefully in a couple of hours!
I recently moved and had an oppoturnity to arrange my studio up to my liking and this is what I came up with. Motorized standing desk and three wall mounted IPS screens! All necessary peripheals within the reach of a hand. Proper Gigabit networking all over the place and a small server I will probably not use. I built all this with Ludum Dare in mind!
And on my back there’s a small hardware lab in case I want to do something crazy!
This is the ultimate test of this setup! Let’s jam!
I’m super late due to having to deal with my car having holes in the roof and it raining the entire day, but I began on the game and it’s impossible to beat so I added a way to cheat!
You can edit memory and maybe even win! Let me know if it’s any fun or hard! There are at least several ways to beat the game.
Time to sleep!
Matchbox is complete. I don’t know what kind of game this is.
PLAY & RATE
So, CGA has more color palettes than you’d think! Here are the default ones:
First mode is the standard CGA mode as you know it, it’s most widely used because it looks best on b/w monitors.
Second mode colours are devoid of blue component, and appear much darker on b/w screens
Third mode is ‘undocumented’ but I actually stumbled on it by accident. It has some quirks but it looks nice.
Switching them in-game is quite tricky, so I’d rather stick to one. Which one should I choose?
Writing everything from scratch takes some time, but I am having so much fun! The game is coming together nicely, I am getting used to awful CGA colours, and I need to test it on my black and white CRT screen!
I’ve been doing some optimisations as I go and it appears as if the game should run smoothly on a 12MHz 80286. 8086/8088 is kind of out of the question, though, if you played any games made for that you should know what I mean.
