      Go Cardinals! That was a long game...

      Also, It's been two years since my last post on this site (oops). Figured I should drop in and say "Hi." Who's still around?

      It's also been over 9 years since my first journal entry ever (which was also about the Cardinals in the postseason... Deja Vu!). smiley8.gif

      I'm going to GDC next week!

      If anyone else is going to be in San Francisco for the Game Developer's conference, don't be shy and let me know.

      Otherwise, I will definitely make fun of you for not being there.

    • ZIP! (version 1.0 released!)

      8 years ago

      Delta

      A game which began as a bad joke of Octodad’s Design Team, ZIP! was never really intended to be developed.

      But, when we heard about Indie City Games “competition” with the theme “things that fly” and the adamant opposition by our project lead, we knew we had to make this game a reality. Nobody else would decide to twist this theme in to a zipper fly, so we had to be sure someone did!

      Before today this game could only be played from fellow designer’s, Majdi Badri, flash drive. But now it is online for anyone to experience the love/hate (or just plain hate) relationship of this experience.

      So, while you celebrate this Valentines day, play this with your partner, and feel the frustration ripping you apart. smiley12.gif

      prv_zip.jpg
      ZIP! is intended for PC and was made using Game Maker 7.

    • Professors apparently dont appreciate it

      Delta

      Professors apparently don't appreciate it when you write your analysis on one man made object that is difficult to use and one object which is easy to use on a door with a horizontal bar and a shoe with laces respectively.

      For my introduction to Human-Computer interaction class, we had to analyze man-made objects in this regard.

      I don't know about you... but when I have to pull on one of those horizontal bar doors, I have a 90% chance that I will push instead of pull and slam my head in to the glass (its almost always a glass door).

      Octodad Official Website

      Octodad is a third person adventure game about destruction, deception, and fatherhood. The player controls Octodad, a dapper octopus masquerading as a human, as he goes about a day of his life. His existence is a constant struggle, as he must master mundane tasks with his unwieldy boneless tentacles while simultaneously keeping his cephalopodian nature a secret from his human family.

      Octodad Official Game Trailer (YouTube)

      Octodad was developed by students at DePaul University, located in Chicago, Illinois. Beginning in June, the team of 19 concepted, prototyped, and developed this original game in order to compete in the Independent Games Festival Student Showcase at the 2011 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. Please check out the rest of the website for more info and content surrounding the game.

      screen6.jpg

      If our official line didn't sell this game to you, then I'm probably not going to do much better...

      That said, the game is free to download and play.

      My personal role on this project was lead designer. We created all the challenges and levels for the game, as well as developed the high-level concepts of movement. For Octodad, we had a satisfying challenge of working with unproven game mechanics, which meant we had to really narrow in on the core elements in the game. We couldn't really look to other games to see how they solved issues which arose in development, because the list of game similar enough to Octodad is limited.

      Hopefully you all will enjoy the game as much as I enjoyed making it. I'd love to receive your comments or questions outside this forum. You can e-mail me at jake@octodadgame.com or contact me through this profile.

      Well, real life outside of RT is one thing, and while it's had its ups and down, all in all it's on the plus side.

      As far as RT goes, in the past two years I've been to Austin for the 'Revelations' premiere, PAX Prime in Seattle to hook up with a bunch (more than a dozen) of LFTOers (and some tag-alongs) and Vegas every year to meet up with Dougss, Kriss, and whoever else happens to be around (Thijsbos from the Netherlands happened to be around last year).

      As far as where you have been, you popped in here about this time a year ago for a moment (Octodad was being whored around). Before that NATO was going well, but its usefulness has greatly waned. I've become friends with most of the Soviets and things have been pretty damn good there.

      So, are you going to be stopping by during the season, or just paying us a bit of a courtesy call? It would be good to have another old timey LFTOer hanging around. While a number of us are still in the thread, a great many have gone on to 'other' things in life it seems. We do have a good batch of think-tankers in the thread and I'm looking forward to the new season (which starts Memorial Day).

      Thanks, dude! A lot of what you've mentioned could've been accounted for had I had more time (Karl the disabled robot, more eventful intro cinematic, etc.) or 3D modeling experience (every custom mesh in the level was made from BSP). Another issue I identified post-project was the lack of established continuity for players unfamiliar with RoboBlitz. The core game was based on getting the Cannon online and featured a hub with Karl "hanging around" in a lower level, for instance. More concerning was the lack of a tutorial for those unfamiliar with RoboBlitz and a certain difficulty spike involving the scaffolding and tractor beam sections. There was also a disturbing lack of wall in the top floor that I hadn't noticed before recording that video. :P

      Would you be interested in playing the level itself? I assume you don't have a copy of RoboBlitz, but if you plan on being at PAX Prime I could bring all the materials with me.

      Oh, and do you happen to have any experience working with 2D spaces? I'm starting up my Leet Wars project again. smiley0.gif

    • buckeyedon Crackpottist

      All in all I'm doing well. Business could be better, but I'll take what I can get, and things are looking up. I'm eagerly awaiting to see how much of my Crackpottery comes to fruition in the coming season. I'm guessing that it will be kicking off in about 3 and a half weeks.

    • buckeyedon Crackpottist

      I'd love your feedback. Can't really do anything with it until after 4:00 pm on Tuesday, but I'll take it nonetheless. smiley0.gif

      And if you're interested, you can buy RoboBlitz on Steam for $10, I think.

    • TheRecreator

      Ah, thanks. Call wasn't mine, though. I just made the level. The game, RoboBlitz, was made by Naked Sky Entertainment.

      What sort of effect are you looking for? Because none of the image links have any effects, only the text ones (as sometimes text can be difficult to tell if it is a link).

      Howdy Delta. Thanks for your comic earlier in the week. The guest week went well and it gave me time to sort out the bugs in my site, write a hell of a lot of comics, and get into a habit of napping (this may not be a good thing, the time keeps getting longer).

      Which reminds me, is your game compatible with Mac? If not, I'll have to check it out when I next switch over to my Windows partition.

      Well, by "compare notes" I mean have a chat about our perspectives on the details of game design, promoting ourselves, etc.

      One thing I've learned about getting people eager about clue-hunting: they need to know there's something to look for. Now that you mention a whole bunch of clues, I'm like "Wha? I missed something?"
