Game Ideas / Lone Star
« on: April 07, 2012, 02:02:42 pm »
LitSwitch presents...

(Tentative Title Screen)

Lone Star
Genre: Sidescrolling Action-RPG Platformer



Premise:
"You have woken up on the intergalactic cargo ship Celestia, only to find that the ship has been seized by aliens. Lizardmen stalk the hallways with their hissing tongues, malfunction robots shoot at anything that moves, and even the wires of the ship have become sentient and electrocute anyone nearby... You notice a chest in front of you, and you open it. You find a gun, and though not entirely confident, you know that you have no choice. Taking a deep breath, you open the door and enter..."

-Randomly selected levels.
-Three different starting classes to choose from and evolve with.
-Fearsome bosses and their alien underlings!
-Weapons of all kinds, including enemy weapons!
-Optional stealth-based combat.
-Charming pixellated visuals!
-Immersive story and world where nothing is certain except for what you choose to believe!
-Over 100 levels!
-Woah! Awesome!

From the two of us at LitSwitch, we hope you will look forward to this game! We've been working on it for a while now and plan to come out with a demo very soon. Stay tuned as we update with more and more content. :]

Questions and comments would be most appreciated!

Chit-Chat / What Have You Been Playing Lately?
« on: September 11, 2011, 06:05:03 am »
Topic title.

Been playing a lot of Demon's Souls... when I have the time. Can't wait for Dark Souls to come out in a few weeks.

Chit-Chat / What are you reading right now?
« on: July 03, 2011, 03:35:56 pm »
Feeling booky so I figured I would make a topic about it. What are you reading? (Articles on the internet, novels, comics, this post...)

Reading The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Old Bugs (1.x/2.x) / Sign-out Sign-In error
« on: May 16, 2011, 02:39:45 pm »
Clicking "Sign-out" in the bar (or any other option for that matter) at the top brings up the Sign-In/Sign-Up screen. In other words, it won't let me sign out.

Edit: I signed in today like always. I do have my browser, Firefox, save my password. I tried 'logging in' again and then trying to log out, but it is still not working.

Edit2: Anyway, it's not a big issue. I just find it odd that this happened for the first time today. It may be annoying for users when they want to use the options at the top and are greeted with a "sign-in or sign-up window"

Chit-Chat / PSN down, information may be compromised.
« on: April 26, 2011, 04:52:42 pm »
This has been happening for a while now, but figured I'd post about it.

As a PS3 owner, this is pretty upsetting. I don't use credit cards to buy things on the service, but stuff like my email, name, etc. is freaky to think about in the hands of someone else. What do you all think about this?

Game Art / Strasteo's Static Images
« on: April 01, 2011, 11:52:26 am »
Hey there everyone! Just thought I'd make a topic to showcase some of my graphics. I'm available for commission, but I reserve the right to refuse readily. Thanks! c:

Anyway, some of these are for games in progress, some are just for fun, and some I wish were games!

"Welcome to the City"

-This piece took me a few days to do. It remains one of my best pixel pieces.

"Fragment of Heaven"

-Fragment of Heaven version 2.0 mock-up. Probably going to undergo even more revision before I'm satisfied with it.

"Melody and Tempo"

-From that old Rocket Town idea I had, changed to Rocket Tale. My only strictly RPG title that's been put on hold. These are pretty outdated and are in need of a tune-up as well, but much better than my older graphics. >_>;

Anyway, that's it for now. Comments or crits would be much appreciated.

Completed / Subforums for Resources?
« on: March 19, 2011, 08:00:38 am »
Kind of a meager suggestion, but maybe it'd be beneficial to have subforums in Resources in order to get specific on the different elements used to create games. Such as Visual/Audio sub-forums where people can post their work in a specific thread reserved for their use and so it can be kept relatively organized.

After writing this, it became apparent to me that having a larger amount of artists and musicians would make this more of a necessity than now, where we don't have a lot. Still, something to consider for down the road, I think. :]

Windows / Mac / Flash / HTML5 / Dungeon Rush!
« on: March 14, 2011, 03:46:21 pm »
A game by Vitor (Luyren) and Lok-Hin (Strasteo)

Concept, Graphics & Level Design: Lok-Hin
Programming, Debugging & Music: Vitor

Dungeon Rush is a hack and slash platforming game where you run constantly throughout a dungeon, searching for the Legendary Sword hidden deep within and once you find this weapon, your final goal is to defeat the Dark Emperor, and rid the world of his evil.

If you stretch your memory a tad, you might remember the old demo we released as a contestant in a Game Jam. We've vastly improved many areas of this game, and have implemented features such as:

-Inventory for potions
-Special Areas
-New NPCs to talk to and buy from
-Completely new levels with emphasis on different paths to take
-Helmets to shield you from harm
-And much more!

I've attached a few screenshots of the game in action. I think I can speak for the both of us in that we are very excited, and we're working hard to release a solid game. There's just a bit more to go until we believe its ready to be published for both the Stencyl website and onwards.

I must say that working with Luyren is a great pleasure, and due to his constant advice, forward-thinking, and hardworking ethic this game has gotten to such great levels.

On behalf of us both, thank you for the support up till now, and we hope that you enjoy playing the game once its finished. :)
