Weekly Game Update – “Trophiends” #5

12comments

We have a name!  My upcoming game will be titled Trophiends, meant to be a pun of sorts on “Trophy-fiends.”  Deal with it.  Also, Defective is ready for sponsorship (sort of).

Flash Game Development Update

Alright, let’s get into it. Firstly, some news on Defective.

“Defective” stuff:

On Friday, I received the final two music tracks for Defective, with the grand total being five tracks – a main-theme track, three level  tracks, and one boss track.  They all sound great, and I can’t wait to finally finish this game.

I could finish it today and upload it to FlashGameLicense.com on Monday, but I’m doing to hold out one more week.  This is mainly because it’s currently the middle of the month, which in my opinion is not the best time to put up a new game for bidding.  Why?  Well, mainly because I believe it’s best to upload near the beginning of a new month, since sponsors have a fresh monthly budget to work with.

As a result, I’m going to work on Defective next weekend, finish it up and add the music, and upload it on Tuesday, October 25th.  That way, by the time November 1st rolls around, the game should have at least one or two bids on it already, whether or not those will be the initial “garbage” bids or not doesn’t really matter, as long as there’s activity, other sponsors will be attracted.

Again, this is all my opinion.  Uploading at the beginning / middle / end of the month or on a Saturday / Sunday may really not matter, I don’t really know.  However, I’ll just stick with my current plan.

Okay?  Okay.

By the way, in case you never saw it, here’s the trailer for Defective uploaded back in August.

Alright, let’s talk about Trophiends:

This week was a very productive week.  Not only did I finally get a name for the game, but I practically started and finished the built-in level editor.  I totally didn’t expect it to be so easy (it’s not done yet, but it’s very close).  This upcoming week I intend to spend on finishing the level editor, updating and adding more menu’s, and generally tweaking the actual gameplay.  Honestly, if all goes well, I should be actually looking to build levels for the game by this time next week.

Screenshots:

Have a look at what the level editor looks like.

Accomplished this week:

  • Floor buttons activate moving platforms.
  • Designed and implemented the main menu.
  • Designed the initial logo, will probably go through another revision however.
  • Practically built the entire level editor.
  • Bug fixes and tweaks.

To do:

  • Tweak the gameplay (Trophy objects should respond to gravity, spikes need to be more forgivable).
  • Add more tiles, mainly for decorative purposes only.
  • Finish the level editor.
  • Add to / modify the main menu.

Alright, that’s all for now.  I’m gonna go get some more work done, so get out.

    I didn’t even read the post I just wanted to tell you that trophiends sounds like a swedish STD.

    I was going more for Ukrainian, but Swedish is good too, thanks!

    All I want to say is the level editor is an epic idea/addition to the game.. you should have them in all of your games (or at-least have one in their for just yourself, I feel that it would make the game get built faster..

  4. Paul D'Amora blathers: October 16, 2011 at 11:58 pm

    You think he spends any time actually building the levels? They’re all just an array that he throws together in two seconds.

  5. Ralph utters: October 17, 2011 at 11:33 am

    For Defective I used Tiled to build the levels. No need to build a level editor when I can just use a free one.

    The only reason I built my own level editor this time around was so users can create their own levels. If I wasn’t going to add that feature, I’d just use Tiled again.

    LOL

    I see… -_-

    No you don’t, your eyes are closed (or you’re Asian). Either way…

    Now you see.

    I was going for Asian, how’d you guess? ;D

    I hate how I have to fill in my name and email stuff every time. Jeez Ralph.

    Also, notice how every post that I don’t comment on gets only about 1,2, or 0 comments. But when I do comment, BOOM! 15 comments out of nowhere. And usually mine are only a couple of those. Point being, my abrasive personality incites conversation and without me this website would be a dead piece of garbage. Your welcome.

    Ok Paul, we know you’re a self-proclaimed god, but damn man, ease it up a bit.

  11. Ralph announces: October 18, 2011 at 10:18 am

    @Paul – DON’T GIVE ME THAT SHIT, STOP CLEARING YOUR CASH/CACHE/COOKIES/OREOS AND THEN THE FORMS WILL REMEMBER YOUR SHIT I KNOW WORDPRESS AND WEBSITE-LANGUAGE.

    @Sean – He has micropenis.
