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 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!

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.
