Re: Spacegame-early stage, long way gone, need feedback

I'm all for shooting for the stars, but it sounds like you might need a reality check. Firstly, you will not finish this game. Not right now anyway. I'm not saying you shouldn't try, I'd even suggest you give it a go. But come to terms with the fact you won't finish it, but will instead learn a lot ...

Re: Spacegame-early stage, long way gone, need feedback

Those screenshots look very well done, are they concept art or part of what you've already done?

Based on your description, it sounds like a pretty standard Freespace kind of game. Nothing wrong with that, I've personally put in many hours into X3.

Re: Engine Dev

Along these lines, I toyed with the idea of using chromes renderer in a game engine. Apparently it's an isolated system that will take HTML (and potentially javascript?) and make the necessary draw calls. You just need to provide the draw calls. This was for a very UI driven game, based around inte...

Re: Engine Dev

I come from the web dev world, primarily, so the system is designed to be pretty close to a web browser, but with things I like about XAML as well. I'd ultimately like to add a custom scripting environment for it (probably either Lua or C#), but that would require a herculean effort to add an entir...

Re: Engine Dev

and to keep the logic specific to the particular enemy (zombie, skeleton, etc.) as part of the inheritance system, rather than having "singleton" components which are only ever assigned to a single type of entity. If you commit 100% to an entity component system, this generally won't occu...

Re: Engine Dev

Firstly, well done. I know first hand just how much effort you've put into this, and I know how great it feels to have something working well. Secondly, I don't mean this to take away from your achievement, but I have to ask, are you planning on making a game, or an engine? It's a hard one, and I kn...

Re: 2D Art Style vs 3D Art Style

Plenty of 3D games that take place essentially on a single plane, effectively making the game 2.5D (which is, of course, a perfectly acceptable art style, but is fundamentally a 2D game in design) Yeah definitely. The art style vs the gameplay need to be thought of separately. Depending on the genr...

Sorry for the ads, but things cost money

Hello developers, The cost of maintaining this website and forums is not very high. But it is an expense I'm trying to lower. The main website has had ads on it for a long time, and manages to accumulate enough ad revenue to pay for about half the hosting costs. Adding ads to these forums I'm hoping...

Re: AritMazeTic : a math/maze game [Web]

I played on the middle difficulty, but there was zero challenge whatsoever. It's a good concept, but needs to be tweaked for difficulty. Like if I had to plan moves ahead that would be a good amount of difficulty.

Re: My Game testing

This smells suspicious. I'm locking this thread as it looks like a stolen game to me. OP can PM me to discuss.
