VVVVVV
« on: April 29, 2011, 03:41:37 pm »
I started another Axe project today called VVVVVV, a port of the PC game of the same name.

The controls are pretty simple, left, right and [2nd] to change the gravity upside-down.

I already wrote most of the engine today, the rest should be fun :)

You should try the demo of the PC game, it's pretty fun.

More details coming soon.

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

I tried the online demo and this looks awesome, very good game. Could you please make it less story/dialogs and more levels-thing? I think that'd make it more calculator-games-like. Good luck!

leafiness0, I think a lot of us who played the game were waiting for this, me first :P

Scout, yeah I didn't really planned any story at all, unlike the PC game, I may add some dialogue later though, maybe... I'm not even sure if I will include all the features the PC game has, such as the 6 characters, teleporters, scrolling levels and things like that. Oh well, I'll begin with the basics, then we'll see after.

Also, I made a 8x8 sprite of the main character, what do you think?

i literally just finished this game (if you were in chan a day or two ago you may have noticed my complaining about that one shiny trinket that requires free falling through twelve spike-lined rooms to get). some of the design ideas are absolutely brilliant. how do you plan to go about making different coloured characters? will there be any?

Grayscale, I guess? Not sure, if I add another character, I will make it gray, just for the sake of not confusing it with the main character.

Well, both games shares the idea of gravity-inverting and... I think the similarity stops there. In VVVVVV, you won't be able to jump and the levels are more linear, much like most RPGs.

And me too, I love this game, the gameplay is original, that's why I took the challenge to port it in Axe :P I nearly finished the game, oh god it's hard towards the end...

And thanks for the support guys :)

So are you going to have names for every screen? :D

Maybe. I'll look at this when I'll be there.

The sprite looks great and I hope there is less story, what I like is the game and levels.

I actually don't mined the story as much, but then again it doesn't really add to the gameplay to a tangible extent so yeah...
Maybe the goal could be to find all the 'shiny trinkets' in a given level?  Maybe a time trial mode?

Engine first guys, worry about the storyline later. Although I think this engine is pretty simple to replicate ^^

Yep, engine first, then we'll see later. I have the main controls done (left-right-jump), can land on pixels (can check if there's a pixel on below) but can't jump off them yet... (only from Y=0 and Y=63.) And now I think I have an idea for the level format.
