In Topic: Anyone have any early effort screenshots?

I remember all too well ignoring all the warnings about hard-coding variables--always seemed expedient (told myself 'temporary') at the time, but almost always overlooked one that would cause hair-ripping bugs.

That said, I'm a huge fan of rogue-style games. I really like the rendered dungeon with the ascii characters twist. And incomprehensible codebase or not, those are some sweet images for Golem!

Very nicely done--didn't notice any significant bugs on a few first passes, though the persistent cursor on the screen should probably go away. The controls took a little getting used to--combat against multiple adversaries was certainly difficult, but that's not necessarily a criticism. I thought the equipment menu was a bit confusing, but overall a solid start. I tried it both on my phone (Droid Bionic) and my Xoom. Played well on both, didn't experience any force closes or notice any lag.

Good job, looking forward to updates!

In Topic: Game genres, what do you want to develop?

01 May 2012 - 05:31 PM

Adventure and Interactive Story games--my all time favorite being Grim Fandango (hence my Avatar image). Creating a game that combines a great story, great art, cool characters, and complex puzzles together is something I've always wanted to do.

In Topic: Anyone started any Android Gingerbread dev?

Just curious how many Android game programmers here have started working with the Android 3.0 SDK? Personally, I'm still working on Android 2.1 and 2.2--haven't downloaded either the 2.3 or 3.0 SDKs yet.

Er...I meant Android 3.0 Honeycomb, but Gingerbread is good too.

In Topic: Grim Fandango, and old favorite

Grim is one of my all-time favorite games. I've held onto the original discs since its release in 1998 and have played through about once every 3-4 years. I had no idea it's been almost 13 years.. this post might motivate me to install it and give it another round.

definitely worth it. I've played it through a few times over the years, and the gameplay, art, and plot never lose their ability to draw you in. Incredible achievement, really.
