HugoBDesigner wrote:Hello, guys! As you may have noticed, I haven't been posting very much on the forums lately (mainly because of the curses I'm making), but I decided to take some time and effort to work on my first game ever!
Actually, I've made a few games, but inside other games (or platforms). But this one is my first "official" game. Just lua and LÖVE, and nothing else. It's still very WIP, but I decided to post here to get reactions (and suggestions, of course).
Here are some screenies (because we NEED screenies):
Just so you know: This is a game based on a type of game that already exists. I decided to make it anyway, because...
[flashback]There I was, searching some games to my phone, and I found a game about linking. I've already seen this type of game, but never to Nokia X2 phones (YAY! Now you know what's my phone). Then I downloaded and played it. It was AWESOME! For the first 5 seconds. The game always had some ads popping, and I thought "Hey, I can buy it. It's not very expensive, and the game is very well done!", but then I noticed I was wrong. The game had 30 levels, and in each 2 levels an ad popped on the screen. The worst is that the game is not very well made. While linking, you can sort of "cheat", making your linking pass through some dots. Then I thought on something. I said my mom "Mom! Listen: I have a game that is poorly done (in my opinion). So what am I doing about this?" and the answer was "You're gonna make your own game.", and she was right![/flashback]
Images of this game (so you can see what I'm talking about):
But, of course, I'm doing a 1:1 copy of it. I'm making the game as it is, but giving the "HugoBDesigner's touch" to it. What it means? An editor, customizable stuff, dozens of new elements and downloadable mappacks! There'll be (just like in Mari0) 2 mappacks premade, and the ability of creating new mappacks with all these elements. Some elements: blocks, dots, doors, buttons (yes, just like Portal), filters, crossers and many others!
As soon as I have something playable (really, really soon) I'll post a beta download here.
The main question (and the reason why I'm posting here) is:
Would you bother doing mappacks for it, or is it useless, only good for playing sometimes?
Automatik wrote:-No, I wouldn't. There isn't as much gameplay in it as mari0.
Automatik wrote:-What's the point of doors and buttons, since the player is just gonna open all the doors?
Automatik wrote:That seems like a cool project though.

Guess I'll wait for tomorrow

I dunno, map makes sense too, but its just not as nice as board.

EDIT: New update has been released, so this is now useless.
Code: Select all

I hold down return on that red square and then I pressed right arrow key.
I hope that's enough of a bug report because I didn't do anything else.
