Fly in the darkness – How was to create it

Saturday, August 6th, 2016 1:14 pm

Hello my friends of LD!

Well, I participated the last Ludum Dare 35, with my game Shape Invasion and I can say it was a wonderful experience. After a week of the event I decided to challenge myself with a kind of “Compo” only to myself. So I chose the theme “Darkness” and decided the period of one week. With lots of effort I managed to create a game called Fly in the Darkness. Initially the aim of the game was just dodge the obstacles and try to go as far as possible.

That was the first version and after that week I decided to work on the game and makes it, in fact, a complete game to be officially released. Then gradually I was implementing new ideas and polishing it. Firstly, I added a story, very simple, which would be unlocked as you progress through the game. To have an idea, nor even a story (Like a book) that text seemed, it looked more like a poem:

1 – CHILDHOOD: The darkness began when I was a child, but I was very young to understand…

2 – SAD MEMORY: I lost my family very young and often I felt alone…

3 – TIME: With some time, I was discovering what is the darkness…

4 – COMPANION: And the darkness became my companion…

5 – EMPTY: But I felt that something was missing, I felt empty…

6 – DISCOVERING: I walked on the world looking for something that complete me…

7 – FRUSTRATED: I tried to find what say be the true love, but I got frustrated…

8 – KNOWLEDGE: I decided to dive into the deep knowledge…

9 – WHERE AM I?: The more I sought, more the empty consumed me…

10 – MADNESS: Until the darkness took my soul and mind…

11 – DARKNESS: In my insanity I went deep into the darkness and I commit follies…

12 – MY LIGHT: When I became blind by the darkness, a Light lit my being…

13 – MORE ONE TIME: She lit my life and helped me to raise…

14 – LIFE: Beside of my Light I passed to live every moment as if nothing else mattered…

15 – CHANGES: However I discovered that my light was fading and that soon I would lose her…

16 – BLACK ROSES: At this moment, I heard the voice of the darkness, whispering in my ears that I should return to her arms…

17 – LAST HOPE: But in her last gasps, my light comforted me with lovely words and give in my hands her last brightness…

18 – THE SEED: I planted the seed of the brightness in my heart…

19 – BRIGHTNESS: Gradually, the darkness that was involving my soul, at that moment, gave way to my light…

20 – NEW LIFE: I said goodbye to darkness and I understood that there is something more powerful that her, the light of love.

Initially the idea was interesting, but I felt that it needed to be improve yet. So based on this text I began to imagine a universe and a story based on the theory of “Hero’s journey” (Monomyth). So I started to write a bit every day and some days after I have had a history of more than 15 pages and that actually might be called as “A book in the game”.

In this story the main character is called Benjamin Fly (Fly in the darkness) and he is a a boy that when was very young lost his parents and has since gone to live in an orphanage (The Backster Orphanage). At the orphanage he discovers something that leads him to a fantastic universe, the Kingdom of Darkness. There he discovers that he is involved in a mystery and so goes on a journey to understand the secret behind it all.

After this, the next improvement that I decided was to implement the creation of different scenarios that arise according to the chapters. In addition to the randomness of objects, directed to the scene with the technique of Object Pool. Then, other improvements have emerged were the Black Crystals Counter (Game money also called as BCs), the Dark Hangar (Ships store), new menus and animation of all UI.

Finally, months after have participated the LD 35 I managed to create, develop, satisfactorily, and release my first game to Google Play, Fly in the Darkness. The links to download, as well as the Landing Page are below. I’m in the complicated phase of post-release now and it has been very hard to get support, but I believe that the game will be even recognized and also many upgrades are already in progress. Those who wish to know more or need help with something, I’m available. ^_^

Thank you very very much for your attention, patience (If you read everything) and help!

In this game it is necessary to control a positron and avoid collisions with electrons to prevent annihilation. The game is extremely dynamic, quite difficult, requires a good reaction, but the records don’t stop to be beaten. The rating of the game is high and the game itself is in the top among the most trending arcade games.

Did you play Up There?

If you don’t, you might like to give it a try.

Up There – A Monster’s Tale is a little arcade game where you play as a mosnter that use a trampolin to get his food. Only thing is, his food are in fact little persons living peacefully in their sky village.

This game is more cute that it deserve to be but I think you might like it.

I’m really looking for some feedback so if you find the time, go and give it a look. Don’t forget to say Hi in the comments.

I didn’t know if I was going to enter until the last minute. Theme seems fun so it’s nice to be back.

I’m working with:

-Construct2

-Inkscape

-Audacity

Listening to Nightwish and Sabaton.

I’d always wanted to make an arcade game but for some reason never did. This might be the time for it.

I hope I can finish in time and hopefully the game will be good enough.

Talk to you soon!

Poo Dee Pie Header

 

Hello, all! We have some new updates to share.

bg_Factory

For starters, the new background is above. Some layout issues occurred with the banner and other elements, so Steffen created a new background. The new background also incorporates the Pies and Record number of pies.

spr_Loading

Steffen also created a new start screen! Before, the screen was yellowish/brownish/green. The new image matches the background much more.

Ben came up with a TON of catch phrases for the game including:

  • Japanese version:
    ウンコパイ (Poo Pie) 新しいレシピ:ダブルコーン!(New recipe: Double Corn!)
  • I’m Pooin’ It
  • Finger Poopin’ Good
  • Poo It Your Way
  • Where the Poo’s the Star
  • Think Outside the Poo
  • Poo Fresh
  • The Last Great Poo Pie Stand
  • World’s Greatest Poo Pies
  • License to Poo
  • It’s a Poo Pie Neighbourhood
  • In Here, It’s Always Poo
  • Make It Poo
  • Poo Deliver Experts
  • Better Poo, Better Pies
  • It’s Way Better Than Fast Food, It’s Poo Dee Pie
  • Slicing Up Poo

As you may have guessed, many of these are corrupted versions of famous fast food brands. How many of these can you guess?

Poo Dee Pie Header

 

We have a question for everyone! We need some fun catch phrases. Poo Dee Pie has the option to have sixteen different headers. Steffen and Ben would like to see different catch phrases on each one.

Poo Dee PieAs you can see, the original phrase was “Nothing says “I love you!” like a hot Poo Dee Pie.
Currently, the following have been selected:

Nothing says “I love you!” like a hot Poo Dee Pie
A Poo Dee Pie a day keeps tapewormy away!
Raising poop awareness one pie at a time
Keeping you regular since 1976
