Day 6 - Almost there!

Sign in to follow this  


Only a day left, the game still needs more polish (and music is still missing) but I like how it looks and feels.

Made a lot of progress of art and bug fixing.


Currently I'm working on music, this can take a while so I might only be able to put sound effects.

Also some other details missing:

  • When player wins they are shown a celebration image, with the credits and some options. (this needs art)
  • When a mage dies it should show a +1 star symbol on top of it.
  • Balance the castle life and the spawn rate of the mages.
  • Put a cursor image when hovering a button.
  • A main menu.

These are minor details, but they will improve the game by x100

      here is my entry for the Dungeon Crawler Challenge. I will not have much time in the coming weeks so I have published what I could do right now with the time I had. Only had time to make one level.
      I will write the Post-Mortem in the next few days.
      The download file is a .zip, and there is no installer so you need to find the .exe in Binaries/Win64.
      Controls are WSAD keys to move around, left mouse button to attack, mouse to move camera around, H key to drink health potions, M key to invoke in game menu.
      To open chests you just touch the front of the chest with the player, and walk over it when opened to pickup the loot.
      Let me know how it runs because the build does not have resolution mode change options and I made a scalable build, which is only scalable on my system.

      Everyone is afraid to create the first topic in a forum, so I thought I would take care of that.
      I want to thank @Brain for taking the initiative to use's Groups feature to create the Unreal Engine Users group. We've had Groups for a while (For Beginners, GameDev Challenges), and a few months ago started to allow GDNet+ members to create and manage their own groups. @Brain is the first member to make the leap!
      I look forward to seeing this group grow into a great resource for developers using Unreal Engine!

      Hello everybody! I'm developing my first big game and almost done with finishing all the mechanics, the only few things that left is some balancing and some enemies behavior corrections. But scince I'm developing it on my own and it's 3rd person shooter the game needs a lot of content such as animation characters environment meshes and so on. And there is a problem: I don't know what to do next. So let me explain situation a little bit better. I was doing very simple games for 3 years when I started game developing and a year ago I decided to create a really big and serios project. So for these year I've managed to create all mechanics balance them and now I got a game that can be played and people (who tested it) enjoy it. The only thing is left is to bring "beaty" to the project. I can model all static meshes for the levels, create some FX, textures and I've even managed to create all enemy characters. So I'm more a programmer than an artist and I simply don't know how to create all other stuff such as animations, player characters and so on. It's realy bad, because for now I can't even show my work to the people, because it's very ugly and poor. And I don't have money to pay artists. So please can you give some advices on what to do in this situation.

      Hello there,
      I've been developing a game for over a year now called TIRELESS, and here I shall explain what its all about!
      TIRELESS is a Challenging 3D Platformer video game which focuses solely on skill based gameplay. Collecting coins, running and jumping is what you'll be doing most of the time. The game however takes a unique approach to a standard 3D Platformer format by adding a game mechanic called the Adrenaline Mode, greatly increasing the boost in both speed and jump height turning the game into a even more challenging and visually stunning spectacle.

      You like rage games? TIRELESS has got you covered. The game will try it's best to make you fail. It is punishing and unforgiving, which is why it makes for a good rage game. Many have tried, and many have failed. But don't be discouraged, the more you practice, the better you get and are simply bound to get good results. The game requires skill, and is not based on chance. But you'll surely find yourself screaming multiple times in your playthrough.

      Consisting of variety of different levels, each built in ways to push the boundaries and uncover ones true core skills, You'll be taken on a long and deadly road to victory.

      The game is of high difficulty and requires lots of skill to play. For a beginner, it can take up to an hour to complete just one single level, while a good player can pass it in under 3 minutes. There is even an in-game guide dedicated to a complete beginner in TIRELESS to help you get started and understand the very basics of the game.

      Unlike most Platformers, TIRELESS removes any sort of combat or enemies, thus making the game's primary focus platforming. But platforming needs to be done right. TIRELESS takes platforming to the next level, offering a wide variety of levels and challenges for the player to discover.

      The game was designed to be played with a mouse and keyboard, but there is a full gamepad support for anyone who prefers a joystick.
      In every single level of the game there are slow motion events which are triggered automatically and really make for very cinematic and even more stunning moments in the game.
      There is a unique power up that plays a huge role in the game called the Adrenaline Box, 
      collecting it triggers the Bright, Fast, and Flashy Adrenaline Mode, giving you an insane boost of speed and increased jump height turning the game into a visually stunning spectacle.
      This mode is used throughout all levels of the game, and it is advised to take time and learn how to properly navigate in it.

      The game features some beautiful tunes, with each level having a special dedicated song.
      Featuring different styles of electronic music such as chill, melodic dubstep, hardstep etc.
      The game features fully voice acted characters such as Kyera, your guide to the game.

      As mentioned before, depending on the skill of the player, makes for how long it takes to beat levels in the game. After finishing each level, the player gets a reward based on time spent on that level, each level has a different "best time" based on its difficulty and length.
      After finishing a level you will be sent to a closed area called the Lobby. In the lobby you'll have access to all the levels and stages you've been to and can revisit them at any time. After finishing a level or stage, you'll be able to unlock the next one in the lobby.

      Customization is one of my favorite part in games, in TIRELESS, you can change colors of your character, along with the wings he's wearing. Other then that, there are also camera filters which change the overall color of the game to make it look different and offer a cool new experience to each level. It almost feels like you are in a completely different place.

      I represent Node Collective LLC. We're working on a pretty small, adventure project, similar in linear style to "Brothers: The Tale of Two Sons."  We're all working quite hard to accomplish this project, and really collaborating on ideas. It's about the adventure of a wife, to find her missing husband on a snowy winter planet, with aliens, and foreign entities. Including, from a development standpoint, an open field for planting and expressing creative ideas. Our team consists of professionals, college grads, and hobbyists. Perhaps you'll learn from others, and gain good experience. We're a pretty tight team/family here at Node, and we're looking to expand the company in the future towards larger projects.
      What we're looking for,
      We're pretty stocked up and everyone, from graphics designers to modelers to sound designers. But we have a pretty limited staff count when towards the programming and level design side of things. So, any of those are much appreciated, although you're free to contact us if you're anything else. 
      If interested; 
      contact me on Discord @ Tannoy#0850
