So I just released my first game on Newgrounds, Viking Run.  Check it out here if you would like.  http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/684835.  I would consider it a success.  It won daily second place and got front paged but has started too fizzle out since the feature ended.   Time to move on!!!

I have not had much time with my new game but I figured I would get a journal going.  This footage is extremely early and is more of a tech demo.  Most of the enemies just move back and forth (one of them fires a bullet)

I am getting excited to put my new found skills to the test with this game. 

The game will be a high score chaser.  There will be five,  60 second waves then a boss at the end.  There will be a clock powerup you can collect to extend your wave time (more time=more kills= higher score)

At the end of each wave you will be able to pick TWO character upgrades.  As of now the upgrades will be:

-Gun damage/ attack speed
-Grenade damage/ grenade count
-Stomp damage
-Movement speed
-Max health

I want this to be a really quick high intensity type game.  You will be able to complete it in around 6 mins but the real challenge will be getting a high score.

You can increase your score by:
-killing enemies
-collecting power-ups

Here's the rub.  You LOSE big points if you get hit.  You lose MASSIVE points if you die plus have to wait a few seconds to re- spawn.

I am hoping this will create a fun frantic game that makes the player think a bit about how they want to upgrade their character.  I am choosing to make a really short game because if it is one thing I have learned it is that players attention spans on a free portal site are very short.

check out some early footage

Yeah thanks!  It was a $200 site lock deal so I am pumped about that!  Also, I have been talking with them about a possible sponsorship deal for Save To Kill.
