Spacejunk

March 23, 2011 Leave a comment

So I believe I’ve finally settled on a name! (maybe…)

Spacejunk is similar to a classic vertical shump, except the player is our beloved planet Earth! The goal of the game is to survive randomly generated waves for as long as you can. There will be spacemines to avoid, asteroids to blow up, astronauts to save, and other planets to defeat. After each wave, you can upgrade the Earth by spending spacedust you have accumulated.

I was originally planning to be done by sometime this week and have it up at FGL, but the project has evolved a bit. Once I got to the original ‘complete’ point, I realized there wasn’t enough content. So I’ve been adding ideas that I think of through the day and also from my friends who have been kindly testing the game for the past few weeks.

Anyway, just wanted to have more of an explanation of my current project. I will post some screenshots and maybe even a game play video when time draws nearer to release date!

The Cell by ~SHiLLySiT on deviantART

[From deviant art my description. This is my final project for my animation class.]

Okay so I wrote a whole paragraph for this and then my browser crashed. So here’s a shorter version; this is my end of the year project and it was supposed to be a point and click video game but it ended up turning into a interactive story. The story sucks. Period. I focused on graphics and effects.
Special thanks to Carlo Castellano for all of the sounds! You can find him here: [link]

Everything else was created by yours truly.

Darkverse

Darkverse really pushes the GameMaker engine. It makes me feel very happy that such a tool is available for free to the public that can produce fantastic games like this. Yes, the GM community has had many fabulous games, but none that have as much polish as this. It’s not done yet unfortunately, but it was released as a beta test for the public. There isn’t much here but from personal experience with GM, I know these basic game fundamentals took quite a bit of work to get done. Not to mention the fantastic graphics and interface! You must check this out. Darkverse is a free roaming space-shooter/rpg. I’ve actually thought of attempting something like this my self, but i doubt it would come up to par.

Flotilla

Brendon Chung just released his game, Foltilla. It’s a 3D space exploration strategy game with some RPG elements. The demo is free, but its ten bucks for the full game. I found it quite hard, though its easy to pick up on game controls. Just make sure you try the demo before you make a purchase!
