Bennu - First prototype

Welcome to the Bennu journal.

Right now I've finished the first prototype of the game, which has programmer art *shudders* and lacks many of the features I hope to implement.

Bennu is a puzzle game that can be described as puzzle-bobble meets spiderman meets some-cool-stuff-not-done-yet. Basically you control Bennu, an old bird that can't fly for long and so goes around each level using his tail to grab to whatever he can and swing himself around, smashing bricks with his head (the head and the bricks must have the same color), until there are no bricks left. Currently his color changes every five seconds but in the future the player will have to touch bonuses with the Bennu to change color.

Right now the blocks are generated randomly, but in the final game each level will have a hand-made layout. Click here to see a movie of the game.

The game is being developed using XNA and the Farseer 2D Physics Engine, which (so far) I highly recommend. :)

First off, welcome to the land o' journals :)

The music in your video cracks me up. It made me laugh which is a good thing. The game looks interesting and the ninja rope mechanic is great. Best of luck with it!

Thanks. Fraps captures whatever I'm hearing on winamp at the time, which btw was Kate Bush - Running up that hill. Better stop it next time.
