Re: Trying to figure out my next project

You know, figuring out how to sum up these projects for a post like this really has helped me sort these out a bit. I have a list I made to try to state every single thing that needs to be done for each project, whether it was a big thing or a little thing. It is a useful list, to be honest. But whe...

Trying to figure out my next project

I didn't really plan on sharing this here, but, well... I tried to write this stuff down to help me sort it out, and I thought maybe I might share it. I'm not expecting anyone to solve this for me, but maybe just trying to explain this in a way for others to follow will help me sort this out. I've b...

Re: Looking for feedback on my game

UPDATE: version 0.2.0 released. I made some big changes to the characters to make them more different from each other. I'd like to know if it's fun/interesting enough to play as a different character; even through sections you've already cleared with someone else. https://i.imgur.com/vKyue4y.png Dow...

Re: Looking for feedback on my game

Jumping out of the water is still pretty finicky. I haven't actually changed it yet. I agree that I should, but I'm not terribly concerned about fixing the water mechanics until I'm creating some actual water levels. I was going to complain about how slow the movement is on the world map, but I can...

Re: Looking for feedback on my game

UPDATE: version 0.1.2 released. This new version includes a new results screen at the end of levels, and will track and save collecting gold coins and cards. If you played either of the older versions, please do not try to load your old save file. (You can still access/delete your old saves through ...

Re: Looking for feedback on my game

Also, while most of the time the key was right next to the lock, sometimes there was a puzzle where you had to bring the key over. So maybe you could have a special object that triggers the exit, like a cannon shooting the character in the sky or a portal revealed by blowing up a rock segment. It's...

Re: Looking for feedback on my game

Like the idea of a SMW-style map with secret exits and such. Maybe have two exit styles (if you're going to rip it off might as well go the whole hog). I'd like to do that, but I haven't managed to come up with any good ideas on how to do it. I don't want to directly steal SMW's key-and-keyhole ide...

Re: Looking for feedback on my game

It's just that you'd expect to be able to close the box by hitting Up, Jump or Shoot, forcing Space makes it inconvenient. Um, That IS what closes the text box. *double-checks* Um, that is what is SUPPOSED TO close the text box. Looks like when I updated the input system I missed the alternate keyb...

Re: Looking for feedback on my game

I'm wondering why you'd ever want to pick Elise, seems like she's just worse than Marcus in every way. She just has a shorter range boomerang instead of a longer range shot attack. I really appreciate comments like that; it gives me a good insight as to what people are looking for. If you time it r...

Re: Looking for feedback on my game

Hold up while jumping to get out of the water. (I thought this was pretty common, but good to see if people are having trouble with it.) If your controller controller isn't working, could you try the other version and tell me if it is working with that version? Also, what kind of controller is it? I...

Re: Looking for feedback on my game

UPDATE: version 0.1.1
I migrated to Unity's new input system, so it should have better support for controllers. However, please inform me if this is not the case for you.

Re: We need a better name for "Adventure Games."

I disagree, a game being classified as "adventure" tells you that it's not a sports game, a racing game, a puzzle game, etc, so the word as a category isn't totally useless. :P Oh really? Because if you look for "Adventure" on Steam you're going to pull up games like "Need for Speed." :wink: Seriou...

Re: Wizards of the Lost Kingdom

If course I've seen it; it's part of the new Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes that I helped back on Kickstarter. "Oh, the power came back on! Aw, but now all the sundials are blinking twelve o'clock." The analogies toward video game adventures didn't stick out to me while I was watching it; it ...
