Oh, thank you! Don't apologise, nobody was aware of them, lol. It was more of a thing in that mid-2000s period when everybody and their dog had a webcomic, and it was often bordering on terrible, haha. I was worried people might have a problem with the shared setting, but these characters live in my head.. (they still occupy a lot of my art output too) The comic spent very long periods being dormant and it veers into weird experimental places later when I got bored - much of it needs significant reworking.. Anyhow, I'm rambling! Thanks for the support.

I’ve never played Cadash, looking it up, wow that looks pretty pioneering! I like! There are certainly some mechanical similarities in this game, but this will be very light on the RPG-like elements.. There is one big feature of cadash that CMO also hopefully shares that I won’t talk about until it’s implemented as it’s slightly likely to end up cut. in terms of setting I’d definitely like to one day make a swords and sorcery thing too. Maximum nostalgia!

Thanks! That’ll come eventually, for sure. So many configurations I'd be curious as to real world performance.

Looking good and I think it's fine for you to target which ever system you want! It's great when things work on A500s but doesn't mean everything has to.

Looking forward to seeing this in action.

Thanks! I really most need it to run nicely on the only Amiga I have to hand, haha. I hope to have a nice video ready over the weekend, but right now I only have a couple of enemy types so it seems *very* sparse!

I won’t use inline images as they’re multiple MB each, here are some gifs I made for sharing to social media. They’re a bit jerkier than it is in practice so video will be better.

A little of how combat works at the start of the game: http://mixelmagic.com/Amiga/EAB/Gotmoves.gif

Clearing blocks.. (I may have borrowed this mechanic from turrican, haha) http://mixelmagic.com/Amiga/EAB/clearblocks.gif

Drip damage. http://mixelmagic.com/Amiga/EAB/driponhead.gif

Is there some way to embed video here? edit: (oh yes! it does it automatically, sweet!)

[ Show youtube player ] - I made a quick video showing some things working.

Wow!
Now that I've seen it in motion, I can tell you it's a very ambitious, big project!

TY! I hope I can keep this level of performance without trimming back

Ah glad that shows.. It's going to be a long slog, the best is definitely yet to come.

I added slightly broken ladders today! https://twitter.com/MFDawes/status/1350873971370188800 (do tweets auto embed too?)

New attachment.. Who called the cops?!

Here’s a preview of some of the cast (some are likely not to appear), and there’s still a lot to add..

And there’s a bug... both WIP.

Implemented platforms that slide in and out... and lots of minor enemy behaviour.

Next job is to make the gameover screen, respawn points, etc.. finish the second map, the tutorial section, and 2 sub-levels, then music.. then the demo will be done! .... Ok that’s a lot of things.


Waiting for the right time to show off some features.. but here’s a video of times platforms.. https://twitter.com/MFDawes/status/1356357814667665412

Right now by far the most time consuming part is making the maps.

This might be a game over screen but it also might be animated and she might be scarier looking. It also might get entirely replaced as I go for something less trippy.

Thanks! I hope to reach the point where it feels like a game when you’re playing it and not just a bunch of “not quite connected together” parts very soon.

TY! I duplicate a lot between the different places so oops if I seem a bit spammy.

Thanks both! It’s really encouraging when people like the weirder stuff, makes it a really freeing project to work on.

Today I’ve been working on shooting pipes, which might also double up if I ever need flying/engine thrusters, but also some environmental hazard things and effects.

I definitely will be doing that but more frequently after the demo drops? (the same applies to twitch streaming) The demo represents <5% of the final game, but there are still going to be some pretty big things in the demo that i don't want to show yet. I want to surprise people with some of it.



But I'll do a "second look" video soon with some of the new things I'm working on once the second main level is a bit better decorated.
