Re: Alwa's Awakening - A NES-inspired adventure game

Yeah. The actual release of the soundtrack was at Retrospelsmässan in Sweden but what I'm talking about in the previous post was the online international release. :)

Sorry, but no plans for a physical or a DRM-free version at this point.

Re: Alwa's Awakening - A NES-inspired adventure game

If someone were to contact us offering to port the game I think it would be really cool. We'd of course be willing pay for it. But we're not actively looking for Assembly programmers at the moment.

Re: Alwa's Awakening - A NES-inspired adventure game

Hi everyone! We just uploaded a short video where we race each other. It was recorded a few weeks ago at a convention here in Sweden. It's the first time in almost a year we're actually showing video from the game :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohT_FelzToY It also has a medley of a few new track...

Re: Alwa's Awakening - A NES-inspired adventure game

Yeah. A level consists of around 30 rooms or so and we had to set up that every time an enemy projectile leaves the active screen it had to be removed from the game. And stuffs like spawning at a checkpoint meant resetting everything to their starting position was a lot of job for us. This is our fi...

Re: Alwa's Awakening - A NES-inspired adventure game

Thanks for your tips everyone. :) A lot of the challenges with this game has been making the game work like a NES game. It took us quite some time to get simple things like removing all shots, enemies when they leave the screen to work properly. I've been studying other NES games quite hard to figur...

Re: Alwa's Awakening - A NES-inspired adventure game

We're thinking of adding some kind of screen-shake effect. Like during the Bowser fight in Super Mario Bros 3.

What other games are there that shake the screen? And what is possible on the NES? I think I read somewhere it can only shake up and down and not right and left?

Thanks :)

Re: Alwa's Awakening - A NES-inspired adventure game

Here's the latest mockup from the level called 'Void Tower'. This level went through three iterations of graphics. Since I'm the Game Designer and not the graphics artist this screenshot might use too many colors. The version we're going to use is Version 3.

Hope you like it! :)
