Loss of Control

by Jeremias - Mini LD Entry


This is my not-game called Loss of Control. I made this in ca. 5 hours because I prepare for an exam.

It's more like a hypnotic screensaver. I hope you enjoy it anyway :)

I used my personal library ontop of XNA. To "play" it, you need the XNA redistributable and the .NET 4.0 framework:

Hmmmm, I wish the lamp would swing more realistically. It needs more easing to simulate the acceleration due to gravity.

The rest looks real nice. If it were a full movie/animation done in this style, I'd watch it ;D

Yes I digg the style. Similar to "Strike of Rage!" but I like this one more because pixels are not separeted with pointless lines. White shirted guy looks like a fox or something :D.

Is it supposed to turn white after a few seconds, with the particles floating around all monochromized?

Before that, though, I was stunned by the graphics. Epic.

The guy left has a (attention! dictionary word!) burlap bag over his head... I should improve on drawing things clearer. And yeah, I really like deepnight's (Strike of Rage) art :D

@Puzzlem00n: No, this is not supposed... what version of windows and what a machine do you have (desktop or laptop)?

Thanks for the comments SammojaMies and Puzzlem00n.

Laptop, windows 7. Could it have something to do with the graphics card? Because I've been having a lot of trouble with my apparent possession of a bad graphics card (Intel HD Graphics.)

I think so... I don't now what else. I clear the background with black, and not white. If you like, you can send me a screenshot ( Or is it all "just white"?

Or I can just put it here. :)

There, see? Everything turns white, except for particles, which change into a sort of black/monochrome.

Perhaps I should rename the game to "Loss of Screen"... thank you for posting the screenshot - but I absolutely have no idea why this happens :)

Yeah, I didn't expect you too. It's just my lame machine, don't worry about it!

@Puzzlem00n and Jeremias,
isn't that the same discussion as in jeremias LD24 entry?^^

Back to Topic, i realy like the little animations in the back. feels like one of these giant childbooks where little things on every page a moveable.

Nice! I could imagine a whole digital comic with such small screens for the storytelling.
