The Warehouse - Demo v0.1

Posted by Programmer16, in SAGE, Project Warehouse 07 October 2012 · 921 views

Here it is: Attached File  TheWarehouseDemo.zip (742.21KB)
downloads: 53

After I built the installer I realized that I kind of forgot to add the ending sequence, so it just kind of ends at some point (the screen will fade black and the the inventory display will pop back up.) I'll upload a better version ASAP.

Again, this is a very rough copy; the art is just placeholder, the dialogue needs to be spruced up, and the scenes need some more filler. That being said, any and all suggestions, criticism, questions, etc. are welcome.

[edit]
I've attached a walkthrough document, but please use it as a last resort. If things are too difficult/don't make sense, please say so! There are 6 scenes for you to play through:
Bar
Bar Bathroom
Main Street
Warehouse - Entrance
Warehouse - Inside
Warehouse - Rear Hallway

Bug/Error List
I'm going to keep a list of bugs/issues reported here.
  • David walks through the bar [ Fixed in v0.2 ]
  • The stall's mouth verb is "eat" [Found by Black-Rook; Fixed in v0.2 ]
  • None of the bathroom trash can's script is filled out [ Fixed in v0.2 ]
  • If you use the key on the warehouse door again it tries to repeat the script [Found by Black-Rook; Fixed in v0.2 ]
  • Screen overlay (for fading in/out and time of day) covers up menus
[edit 2]
Which would be preferred: an updated installer or a zip containing updated files? I guess I could do both.

I really would like to do a "launcher" style setup similar to MMOs, but I'm not sure how well received that would be. I personally think it would be way better than having to download patches and such. Open the game and viola, new files to download. And no, I wouldn't lock things out if it couldn't connect to the server; I'm not thinking DRM or anything.

Hey! I just finished playing the demo!

The installer doesn't seem to uninstall or update the previous one, it just adds another folder instead. (One reason why I hate installers).

When you walk up to the stall or garbage can, it has the option to 'Eat Stall'. Not sure if that was intentional. ;)

Other than that everything is great! I'm assuming you cannot get past the bathroom stage? I have a cue ball, but I cannot use it. I tried to throw it through the window it escape! haha!

Lol, yea that would be wrong; I'll put that down to correct.

I think I'm going to have to rework the first puzzle as most everyone has issues with it so far. There's a lot more for you to do yet.

That's why I posted it up here though; to see if my puzzles made any sense and such. Thanks very much for the feedback!

Sorry, I forgot to comment on this. I think that is due to me changing the product name; I'm not sure though. I'm not a big fan of installers either, but I'm using it as it automatically downloads and installs the prerequisites (.NET 4.0 Client and XNA). I'll definitely test the next one before releasing to make sure that it updates or at least uninstalls the previous version. Thanks for pointing this out!
Haha looks like I missed interacting with the pool table.... I thought hey, why not throw the cue ball through the window!

Lol that's an idea, but I don't think David would be very happy about that :P
