[Cemetech Contest #9]Graviter
« on: November 14, 2012, 03:36:30 pm »
This is more or less a cross post from here.

My entry for Cemetech's 9th contest will be bringing Leafy's Graviter to Windows. With some gameplay changes, of course. :P

This port of Graviter will make use of a Gravity Gun that can create points of gravity or antigravity. It will also feature a custom storyline.

I plan on using:

SFML for all media and most graphics
SPARK for particle effects (Should make the game look very nice)
Box2D for collision detection and physics

It will be written in C++.

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

Ah nice to see it posted here too. I was wondering if you and juju were planning to cross-post your project. Graviter was awesome so I would love to see a computer port. :)

Just make sure it doesn't abuse particles way too much, though, so it won't lag lol. :P

SPARK works very fast and efficiently. Even on a computer with a very low end graphics card, it can handle tens of thousands of particles with >100 FPS :D

That said, I won't since too many will detract from the simpleness and effectiveness of the gameplay and graphics. :P

What about a TI-Nspire CX running Linux (and Wine) off a Flash drive? :P

Just kidding, glad to hear :)

I can't wait to see what you come up with! I'm particularly excited for the use of Box2D - I've tried it in the past, but never made anything as major as this. It'll be cool to see how rotational physics contributes, not to mention all the other cool Box2D libraries!
In-progress: Graviter (...)

Hopefully it can run at a quite good framerate as well. I wonder if the game will look better if some sort of motion blur simulation is added to the character and some particles? That kinda added a nice touch to the original (even if it was due to the calc)

It will be a learning experience for me, I've never used Box2D before. It should be most useful, however :D

I'm thinking about creating the character sprite, purely out of particles. That way, it could simulate a mice motion blur effect without having to draw each frame by hand in gimp. I could also see what I could do with sfml's post processing effects. :)

That would be nice lol. Would it work with some sort of control points like I saw with some games where sprites were connected together to form body parts?

Possibly depending upon how it's coded. The sprite itself is just an image, but a class containing the sprite could have that quality.

SFML and C++ are cross-platform, why is it Windows-only?

I don't know if Spark is cross platform. If I am able to, I'll try to have a linux release.
