A come back, and a question.
« on: July 13, 2010, 05:09:10 am »

Hello All,

I have visited this place a really long time ago. I even played SC2 with somone online, he beat my mycon ship pretty easily.

I have completed an indie game called "Labyrinthica: The quest of Lima", it's a commercial fantasy action game(no space ships involved) and I wonder if you would like to see it. I am also working on a new game called "Wonder" which might be free, though I am not sure about it.

Please tell me if I can post here about my games, and if not that's fine.

I think promoting commercial products is frowned upon within this community.

I'd like to see it if you made it yourself Smiley. I'm interested in what SC fans program in their free time / job Wink.

Seeing as you already brought the matter up, you might as well provide a link and save everyone the trouble of googling it. I think you've got enough people interested to justify a Café thread.

Ok, sorry for causing a bit of a comoshion about this.
My commercial game "Labyrinthica: The quest of Lima" youtube is at:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sg-PXf4nT4

The website URL is at: http://www.pompipompi.net/

The other new game I am working on is called Wonder. I leaning torward making it a free game, or at least some part of the game to be free.
It is going to be an RPG game with single and multiplayer modes. You will be able to create worlds with a tool, much like RPGMaker. On one hand it won't be as dynamic as RPGMaker, but it will have a very specific good and simple gameplay to it.
 
The youtube for this game is at:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0NhMVqmuDaw

Thanks,
If you have any questions, I will be happy to answer them.
And I am always happy to hear what people think(there is also a demo for Labyritnihca at the website)

Being a sorta mod here I really don't see the hram in this since you've been here before and participated. It'd be different if you were a fresh new guy advertising in his first post. So unless meep-eep overrules me or whatever, feel free to talk about your game. Smiley

Hehe, curse my thick sausage fingers.

Anyway, if your working on more indie games, why not make an SC themed or inspired one? You'd have the uncounted hordes of sc fans lining up for it.

Well, you will be able to create custom worlds in Wonder. So basically you could create a SC themed RPG.
The battles would still be RPG like, unlike the battles in SC. But all the art work and settings could be in space.
One of the reasons I chose this type of game is because I wanted to restrain the scope of the game. I have a full time job, so I don't have much time to work on it.

What programming language do you use if you don't mind me asking?

I use C++ for Labyrinthica, and also wonder.
I am likely to write a Silverlight client for Wonder, so it will be possible to run on a web browser. It also means Mac will be able to run the client, because Mac support Silverlight.
So it's mainly C++.
I didn't use a scripting language to do all the logic and AI in labyrinthica, which might have been a mistake.

A Star Control themed RPG would be nice!
