Post subject:  Progress Thread - Jammin Honey

This is a concept sketch of what I will probably do. Based on early 1980-82 games like Jumpman, Burger Time, Donkey Kong. Basically, you are a girl, carrying a guitar. Collect music notes to power your guitar and blast your enemies with rock and roll sounds. One of the enemies has a key to the next room.

The level mockup looks fun. Definitely has that old single-screen-platformer vibe.

By the way. I will program this in C, and make it open source. Using neslib.


EDIT, might not release the source. I'm doing a bunch of non-standard / very complicated things...I don't feel like this would be a good learning source. Non-standard, like putting data in the CHR-ROM, using a heavily modified version of famitone, using game-specific compression techniques.

I love the concept!

I need to think of a new name. There are already several games called "Guitar Girl"

Maybe an obscure girl name. Ginny?

For no reason I can articulate, it feels to me like the name should use assonance and start with the same /ɡ/ as "guitar", not /dʒ/ as "jam"

How about "Gretchen Gitarre".

And have all the game text in German.

"drücke Start" (or is it drücken ?)

"Drücke Start!" is correct, but "Gretchen Gitarre" sounds a bit odd. :D
("Gretchens Gitarre" is much better, but it means... "The guitar of Gretchen")
Hm... "Gitarrengretchen" is probably the translation of "Gtretchen guitar" - german likes long words...

Oh, so it's Eggerland (The Adventures of Lolo) meets Donkey Kong? That sounds interesting!

Maybe "Gitarrist Gretchen" or "Gretchen liebt gitarren"

"Gitarristin Gretchen" is ok, "Gretchen liebt Gitarren" is even better ... :beer: :D

^ Those are all great suggestions! :shock:

I like 'sisters', since there are so many classic games with brother or bros in the title. Six-string sisters is a bit of a tongue twister.

Maybe "Strummin' Sisters". And have 2 player (1 at a time)... Honey and Moxy.

On second thought, I don't like it.

Edit. Thought of the name 'Jammin'...apparently there was a C64 game with that title...

Edit2 - one more thought...
Jammin Janey
(I wanted Jammin Jenny, but that's the name of a porn star). Also wanted Jammin Jelly, but that's an item in Paper Mario. Or Jammin Julie. ...no, that was the name of a Garbage Pail Kid card.

Unique names are hard.

Final edit -
'Jammin Honey'. The girl's name is Honey.
