[lonely pixel news]Game Updates

June 6, 2010 Leave a comment

So since the end of High School (Yay!) I’ve been working diligently on my games. Mainly focusing on ZTD because I want it out ASAP, at least a beta version for the public to test. I’ve finally added a dedicated page for ZTD with information and what not that you can find here.

Secretly I’ve also been working on another game. (Gasp! It cannot be true?!) Since summer is here and its my last summer before college, I want to get some COMPLETED games into my portfolio. So I’ve decided to enter in some competitions. Currently I’m working on an entry with a friend for the Game Maker Competition 06. We already have a solid idea and are testing some elements that we would like to see in the finished product. Here’s sneak peak:

Doesn’t that just leave you wanting more? Guess you’ll have to stick around. ;]

A couple months back I posted a link to my entry in the AYV festival. To be honest, I started the project to win, but I didn’t think I would. After today my hopes are quite high because one of the judges came up to me and said I’d be hearing from him later. Nothing is final yet; they are still choosing winners, but that comment made me feel so happy.

I’d also like to comment on my major lack of updates. I’m finishing up my senior year of high school which has been quite hectic, leaving me with little time for other things. I’ve been mostly using my free time to relax and test ideas of making some money on the side. I’ve set up a site to sell my digital art as prints, which you can find here. I’ve also been spending a few hours on the weekend working on my new project, Zombie Transmitted Disease or ZTD for short. It is actually coming along quite well and almost have a build that I will release to the public once I finish up a few things.

I’d also like to say how appalled I was at the comments I received on my previous post. Usually I’m open to both positive and negative feedback, but it was quite immature so I disabled the comments on the post. Some people really need to grow up.

Still using some visual placeholders, but in the end, it supposed to be a graphically simple game; just basic geometric shapes and what not. Obviously, it’s a top down shooter. Specifically a zombie top down shooter, hence the name. But I think the official name will end up being Zombie Transmitted Disease. =D The goal of the game is to survive the level utilizing all of the weapons and items provided. Planning on other goals such as protecting another player/defending a position, but the main theme will be survival. There are roughly eight weapons at the moment, but the weapon purchasing system has not been implemented. There will be power ups that can be obtained through a lottery machine and unique traps/defense items for maps. As seen above, the lighting system is already in place which was a bit hard to get set up but works great now. =] Shall update later.
