Title: Betwixt [Gameplay Demo]
Post by: Momeka on June 24, 2017, 06:12:34 AM
So I made something, it's kinda like a spiritual remake of my chapter 2 from CCG 2.

I love everything about this game even though I want to scream in frustration at those puzzles! Well done Sir Momo! I hope you make more of this! :Plight:

Just had a playthrough and I'm hugely impressed. The atmosphere / graphics / sound design are fantastic. I think you're definitely
onto something with this!

Red, market this. Rebuild it in some other engine what can do that because it was freakin' fantastic! It has all the makings of a good indie hit. You just need some kind of crawl or intro story to flesh it out but that is literally all it is missing. =3

Thanks everyone. And nah, going to keep this as a hobby project. I'm already spending 8 hours a day working on a commercial game. As odd as it might sound this project is just for me to relax on my down time. Just making what I want and not really caring too much if it will work with the market.

Wow awesome you got it releaseable : )

Will play when I have some time. Your chain game chapters are like little christmases coming early so I expect great things...

Cool : ) Love the little creature puzzle especially.

I'd definitely make the power source graphic different from the HP orb, but otherwise, nice! was there only one secret door or did I miss some?

Oh yeah, good catch. That whole map was kind of a last minute fix. Wanted to do a whole lot more with the cat-dog-thing-creature as well. But it will have to wait for the finished version.

And yeah, one secret room in the demo.

So I downloaded it yesterday before catching a train, and I loved every minute of it. Your puzzles are so smart, I'm jealous ahah.
 You should definitely make a full game of it if you can!
I didn't find any secret room so I'll look again!

Very good job

Oh brah beating that game with one HP made me feel only a little dumb but now you tell me there's secret I misssed? Bummer. Mondo bummer. I'll have to brave it again. I like secret doors. :D

Post by: Momeka on August 24, 2017, 01:24:42 PM
Not really worth replaying it for the secret room, but knock yourself out if you want to. Keep your eyes on walls standing out.

Anyway, I'm back working on this thing. Here's a ghost creature thing

Ooh glitchy looking skeleton I like! Mondo neat on the eratic movement as he silently pursues the nameless hero.

No idea what's going on but looking rad

Falling scene looks really good! =D  I just hope it's not part of your one of your sinister puzzles where we have to jump off a cliff and it leads to this charming scene....Only to find out there is a hidden pattern of spikes o-o; Pleasant scene then impalement.

Oh, you're being sucked between dimensions together with a bunch of ghost/spirit beings.

Also speaking of secrets. Made an animation for opening one.

Love the anatomy one, really great work! You should teach us how to make such awesome pixel art ahah.

Damn, those animations look great. How do you go around doing that on the maps? Just a lot of charsets or battle animations?
Title: Re: Betwixt [Gameplay Demo]
Post by: Zoltar on September 16, 2017, 11:12:22 AM
Mondo awesome animations  Momo dude! The anatomy lesson is just so freaking hillarious!

It varies but usually I try to stick with charsets where it's possible. Otherwise I result to using pictures. The light beams in the last screenshots are pictures. The gif with the eye a couple of post above the eye is a bunch of charsets while to get the movement of the characters right they had to be pictures.

Been making menus this week

I love the bobbing motion of the window and boxes as they appear. Motion does a lot.  Is the font from an old game? It seems pretty perfect for a menu
Title: Re: Betwixt [Gameplay Demo]
Post by: Donut on September 23, 2017, 11:23:59 AM
You have quite the talent for menus too! Nice as always :)
Title: Re: Betwixt [Gameplay Demo]
Post by: Momeka on September 24, 2017, 11:25:54 AM
Thanks. And yeah, motion does a lot to make interactions feel nice and good. As for the font, don't think it's from a game, just downloaded it from dafonts. It was called something along the lines of "Perfect DOS font". So if it's not actually from an old system it's made to look like it.

Been working on a new character for the game. It's going to replace the sleeping cat person thing in the demo.

I'm happy with how the front looks. But man, the back is weird and I'm having real trouble getting the side view to look right.
