Re: Jetboard Joust - Defender-Inspired Cute Retro SHMUP - Alpha Now Available For MacOS and Windows

Ahh, the joys of gamedev. 90% tweaking numbers. That's why I'm really just a programmer, any game I've written I can't be bothered with all that. As soon as I've got START->PLAY->DEATH it's done :)

Maybe if I every write a game that I actually care about I'll be bothered.

Re: The "I've released a thing" thread...

I constantly fell into the water in the last room (that has water) under the mountain (when walking west). I thought "bah, that's just too close to the entrance of the room, I keep forgetting it's there" But when I got the ability to walk underwater I hadn't thought of falling to those pools, until ...

Re: The "I've released a thing" thread...

Cheers. I found it after some searching. Had just walked past it first time. Now trying to get the magenta key. I've been playing this. Really enjoying the nostalgia effect. Currently stuck at the crazy lady with the gun. There's a rose as you start going up the mountain from the right side, before ...

Re: Bandersnatch - Black Mirror

Yeah I enjoyed it. Very cool that Minter had a cameo. Got a few different endings, one had post credits with him playing a spectrum tape on the bus. Just checked if someone had decoded it. Turns out it gave a QR code to

Re: Games I Played 2017 Edition

I bought Hollow Knight for the Switch which I was looking forward to for ages. Stupid bosses of course because, you know, it's a Metroidvania so lets copy the bad design of every other one. Actually they aren't *too* bad, but I'm currently at one that the save point is miles away and frankly I just ...

Re: WIP: Escape From Cyber City

Yeah. It's actually more stealthy than run-about-shooty. Since you only have punch and it takes a second to charge it up, so you're always at the disadvantage unless you plan each fight. A blast from off screen usually won't kill you and your health re-gens quickly, So best to turn, run and wait. An...
