Brief Description

A free all-in-one game construction kit targeted to be both powerful yet simple to use. Provide an easy way to allow users to create just about any kind of games. We have selected a scripting language to expose engine functionality and allow users to extend the construction kit as needed. LGCK strives to be a compromise between fast execution and ease of use.


Target Aim

We're looking for people who want to help us create a demo game to promote the construction kit. The theme we selected is Halloween -- and our time table is three months. The game will have three sections, each with different artwork and sounds.

In the addition to the composer we also have someone to made sound effect and background music. The transition is like night and day.


We are still looking for more people. Especially those who like to create platform games. Make levels. Draw Sprites. Come up with ideas for monsters, quests and puzzles. If you have a game of your own you would like to build or port to the LGCK platform let us know about it!

If you are into C++ coding, we might have something for you too ! :D

Drop us a line and we'll talk.

armandutzu, we would welcome more artwork/sprites. If you can create new boss with special behaviors this will be a great plus too (I'll do the actual coding for the ai). We are also looking for someone who can design new levels for any of the demo games.

R1cochet, I have sent you my reply and a link to a copy of the source code to get you going. Let me know if you get it to compile. We can then talk about what you can contribute in terms of C++ code.

Regards,
Frank B.

Will your construction kit be able to make 2.5D games? Or 2D graphical games only

Posted 25 April 2011 - 04:29 PM

It's targeted to making 2D games. However...

If you happened to have a passion for 2.5D and you like to collaborate with us on laying out the fondation for some kind IsoTile layer system, I would be more than happy to implement it as part of LGCK.
