News / Stencyl jam #18 Winners
« on: May 07, 2019, 02:17:37 pm »
The winners of Stencyl Jam #18 are...

1st. Up-Nest by havana24



Flap your way to the top of each level while dodging tricky enemies and spikes. Blast barrels and baddies to refill your flap meter. Choose an upgrade at the end of each level to hopefully make your life easier, or at least undo the mistakes you made in the previous room. This game doesn't shy away from its Downwell influence, but the end result is something so crunchy and fun it's hard to put down.


2nd. Little Blip by LittleGames



Launch your ball into the air, land on a platform, and launch again, trying to get as high as possible. There's a catch though: you can only land on platforms that are the same color as the ball. Swap the ball's color by passing through the colorizer zones. The monophonic beeps and blips in this game are incredibly satisfying, harkening back to the simple but mesmerizing aesthetics of the earliest video games.


3rd. 1.3rd Project Innocence by Akemi Yume



Defeat all of the enemies in each room to move forward. The player has several abilities at their disposal; the basic platformer essentials (walking and jumping), a basic shooting attack, a quick dash for dodging bullets, and a radial spray of bullets that must be charged up and timed well. Although the game may seem somewhat underwhelming at first, each room becomes its own interesting and unique challenge. You'll find yourself developing strategies, tailored to each room, that utilize all your abilities to clear out the enemies without getting killed.


Congrats!

Congrats to all the winners! You'll each be receiving a year of Stencyl Studio.

And, good job to everyone who participated! There were 18 new games made, which is something everyone should be really happy about.

It had been a while since our last Stencyl Jam. We're planning on doing these more frequently, so you can expect another one sometime this year.

Ludum Dare EntryPlay on itch.io

Burn and replace your inaccurate maps in order to find the treasure on each screen.

Each map contains an X, marking the location of the treasure… supposedly. Before you dig, be sure to compare your map to the current screen and make sure nothing is amiss.

Shared Resources / Window Resize Example
« on: June 20, 2018, 02:28:25 pm »
To showcase one of the new screen-related blocks in 3.5, I made a window resize demo so I could make a video for Stencyl's social media accounts.



I figured I'd post the demo I made here in case anyone was curious how it was done. Test it on the Windows or Mac targets and make sure you're using the latest nightly build.

Chit-Chat / Watch out for the Eclipse 2017
« on: August 17, 2017, 12:48:48 am »

Depicted (from left to right): bright circle, dark circle

Yes it is that time of year again. For the first time in 400 years the United States of America will be including a west to east coast to coast SOLAR ECLIPSE predicted to span the entire coast to coast area of the country . This legendary event will take place Monday August the 27th.

What you need to know:

DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN AT ANY TIME EXCEPT DURING TOTALITY. This will result in damage to your eyes.

- When in the Path of Totality you will be blessed with the opportunity to stare at the sun but only during the brief period of totalitarianism.
- No one has ever seen a solar eclipse before so we're not sure what is going to happen.
- Do not be inside during this once in a livetime event as you will regret it afterwards and will never witness it.
- Don't forget your space helmet (crucial mistake).

The Map

Do you see your house? If you do not then it is time to get in a car

The Phases

Pre-total


Total. You can look now!


Post-total. Stop looking!


Welp it's over now what

Cultural Impact
<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/HmLk2vSXXtk" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/HmLk2vSXXtk</a>

Fun Activities

Consider wearing one of these bad boys on your head at all times. It will project miniature eclipses onto your head which will empower you

Wrap-up
Welp now that you have all of the information that you need you're ready for the soar eclipse! See you out there!

Chit-Chat / New App Store
« on: June 05, 2017, 02:41:30 pm »
https://www.apple.com/ios/app-store/

Apple's making major interface changes to the App store.

The default page when you open the App Store is now the "Today" tab, which gives less information than the current home page, but features nothing but impossible-to-miss banners. The two tabs to the right of the main tab are "Games" and "Apps"; each one a bit more similar to what we're used to, which is where you'll find the "New games/apps we love" features. It's cool that games will get their own easy to access tab now.

In addition to all that, Apple's going to feature a "Game of the Day" (and an "App of the Day", of course). Hopefully we'll see a few Stencyl games snag that spot!

Hey everyone, I did a presentation on Stencyl where I made an action platformer game from scratch in about an hour for the Nashville Game Developers monthly meetup. It was a lot of fun!
