PNF News Flash: Pkunk Game
« on: February 10, 2010, 07:12:43 pm »

Howdy folks,

So today we have something pretty fun for you. A while back, we played a little game. Pretty simple thing, choose what to do and see what happens. There were a lot of alternative endings in it, so playing through them all on the forum seemed a bit pointless. Instead, I teamed up with RTyp06 to make a fun little game of it that you can download and play through on your own. Unfortunately, the game is windows only. So to compensate for that, there's also a HTML version that you can play right here on the PNF.

Hopefully you'll have a grand time! And if not, better luck in your next life!

Lukipela

Have fun guys!

 Shocked Great work Luki, this is way to awesome...I'm speechless! Shocked

I hope you'll get rewarded in your afterlife (RTyp06 too) for all the effort you've made to make the world a bit happier place for all UQM fans Cheesy Smiley

On my first run I ended up reincarnating into a Yehat! I couldn't ask for a better ending, the Yehat are my favorite^^

I've reincarnated as a Pkunk and it has taken me a while to chain to Spathi.

That turned out nice.

Btw, http://star-control.com/hosted/Pkunk_Game/02.php is missing the page footer.

Yeah, this was a fun little project and has me thinking in other directions when it comes to SC inspired fan games. For instance, I always wanted to be a melnorme trader and what would my superiors think if I bungled a trade or two? Or if I was bested by a Druuge? Hmmm... Wink

Does it work in WINE?

Unfortunately, the game is windows only. So to compensate for that, there's also a HTML version that you can play right here on the PNF.
Your style attributes have pixel values for width. Could you change them to percentages? It's generally bad practice to specify the exact size of a web page, because then a horizontal scrollbar is added on any computer with a narrower screen.

Good. One of the main gripes I have with the SC2 fandom is that people always seem to either want to make a melee clone or a sequel. both of those are tall orders that demand a lot of resources. There's a lot of smaller and easier games set in the SC universe that could be made faster and with a larger probability of success.

Celtic: you'll have to ask RTyp06 about those things, I have no idea.

Celtic, I duinno, try it? The requirements for Game Maker are Direct X and Windows XP or higher. If you have any doubts just use Luki's html version.

For the record, it runs under WINE, but in such a way as to be unplayable. Namely, I don't see the images except for a few seconds after right-clicking on the window, and that action also seems to reset the game to the beginning.

I guess I'll have to make do with the web version.
