Vortex
« on: May 17, 2011, 12:46:04 pm »
Hey guys, here's my contest entry: Vortex!
You have been randomly imbued with the power to create vortexes (vortices?) The government has locked you deep underground under tight guard, and your job is to break out.

The further you progress, the more powerful your vortexes will become, sucking up any object in their way.

This game will be a physics puzzler, and will hopefully involve lots of gruesome animations and epic explosions.

Lets see if I can best a builderboy ^^

What do the vortexes do, and what are they going to be capable of. Also, how will you create gruesome animations under this hardware?

Same questions as BrownyTCat, how precisely will Vortexes work?  How will they be placed?  How many can you have at a time?  What will they effect?  Will there be enemies?  What kind of obstacles block your way?  I can't wait to see this progress :D

Although you switched to a different entry, are you still planning to finish this once the contest ends?

Nope. This is a dead project. I never got the physics fully figured out, so feel free to delete this thread if you want.

Ah ok. Sorry to hear. :( I'll keep the thread, though, in case people want to use this idea
