Little activity on the blog, a lot of work out of it.
With “Dimension of Cubes” temporarily suspended now we are focusing on a new project that may be promising. We get in full in the realm of strategy games, especially since we are developing something with high influences from games like “Dungeon Keeper” and especially "Theme Hospital”. Nostalgic play sessions in search of inspiration are interspersed with hours of work.
We still can not give dates, there is much work ahead, but we work at a high pace to have something soon. And discoveries like this consolle for Game Maker significantly increase our creativity. And our bugs, I must say, but that’s the fun part.
We have some ideas for other projects (I found a 2D physics engine for Game Maker who is screaming “use me”), but all in good time …
It’s too appealing. It’s beyond my strength.
That’s the code I’ve been writing over and over again in recent days.
Basically is what makes the game go directly to the debug room I use to check collisions.
I hate collisions.
I have spent the last week or so trying to fix a bug in the first version of “Dimension of Cubes”, by which you could get stuck if a cube materialized while you would jump.
But, after hours of calculations and desperate searches on Google, I found the solution.
Now, if a cube is materialized in your position, you are automatically transported to the top of the cube It is a way to avoid bugs and a skilled player can use it to fast forward through the levels. And for his life in a fall, if you are lucky enough to have a cube nearby when you fall.
And it worked right the first time!
The Ludum Dare October Challenge ended a few days ago, and sadly “Dimension of Cubes” not
was purchased in time to be among the winners.
But we have had at least one purchase!
From here our thanks to who has bothered to buy the game. We are already working on an
improved version, which will probably be ready for the beginning of the year, besides
having in mind a couple of interesting ideas…still cannot say much.
We apologize for the low rate of updates. Too much work, little free time, boring
days of rain, too much Left 4 Dead 2 to play, these things…
The culmination of nearly a month’s work has come to light: “Dimension of Cubes”, our project for the October Challenge, is now on sale. For problems with Desura, we finally resorted to Indevania.
All purchases and / or opinions are welcome.
