Soul of Mask

Hi,

My name is Alain Perrin,I come here to present my project (actually almost finished) of game.

Soul Of Mask already announced on steam. It is, unfortunately, a one-man job. 3 years of pleasure and nightmares.  But it is still a joy to work on it. I was supposed to start talking about this game at least one year ago it is probably a big mistake a made. Anyways better late than never.

It is a game about a mask supposed to collect one object and avoid enemies on the map with Pacman view. The main character has to take a mask to be able to collect those object. Those masks have some powers like burning enemies, feezing... by using a power of a mask it is lost.  The game is supposed to be released on steam at the end of this month (nov 25th 2017).

The game is writen C/SDL, graphics assets are made with gimp and audio lmms/audacity.

current status of a game is debug/testing.

More info are coming soon.

for the moment you can have a look at indiedb and steam

 

Video of the game  gameplay:

      I'm making a 2d platformer game as a learning experience, and I need a character and some backgrounds.
      The idea is a person on the brink of death "running" through his memories. The background is his memories.
      This game will make minimal revenue, because it'll be a free mobile game.
      I'll give you more details if you respond.
      Thanks.

      Obligatory disclaimer - Yes this is for academic purposes, not for making actual games.
      I've been employed as a Software Engineer for 2 years but still feel like a beginner when it comes to writing a game engine (and much of coding in general). What little experience I have with writing 3D software from scratch is from super rough university projects (which we called "engine" but that's definitely debatable). Meanwhile, my current job doesn't really take me down this line of learning.
       
      This thread is to ask for advice; mainly pointers to good guides, or comments on what structural approaches are considered to be good ones. I'm looking for something that teaches me about how to structure a game engine so that:
      it's good for learning about writing an engine it's not completely devoid of modern techniques it will be usable for later feature learning; networking, AI, unit testing, etc. (I imagine this criterion is typically a given anyway.)  
      Some things I'm aware of so far (you may want to comment on any of these):
      https://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/MichaelKissner/20151027/257369/Writing_a_Game_Engine_from_Scratch__Part_1_Messaging.php I also have the book Kissner recommends: Game Engine Architecture by Jason Gregory. From what little I've read of it, it appears more advice than structural guide. ECS was a buzzword back when I was at uni, but the more I google it the more it appears to have become a dirty word. Unreal Engine's source  
      Regarding ECS: For all the flak it appears to generate nowadays, it is at least a structure. If ECS isn't recommended I'm interested in what other general structural approaches there are.
      Regarding Unreal: I'd love to jump in and learn how Unreal Engine's structure works, but it might be biting off more than I can chew. 
      Language of choice is C++.
       
      Thanks

      Hi guy , i wanna really quickly introduce myself , So i'm a 18 year old Highschool student that have been for a while really pationate about video game (i have been doing Esport , Streaming all that really fun stuff) but lately i had to made a choice about what i wanna do in life and i'm pretty sure its going to be in the video game industry. Last year i started learning to use UE4 , pretty much only for fun trying to recreate cool stuff i was seing in the game i was playing at that time. But now , i wanted to trie creating something of my own so i wanna show you what a got in the head. Also , I'm french so sorry if my spelling is quite right.. 
       
      So in Short , i was playing lately alot of FPS (Quake champion , Law Breaker and bunch of other cool game). I was talkinh with my friend and its pretty much their that a got the global idea of what this game is going to be. I wanted to take little simple game mecanics from every game and put them i one unique game. For exemple , Player could Strafe Jump like in quake , while other Start randomly Wall running like in Titanfall 2. After i came up with what would be the game objective , because player won't start playing a game for no reason . I didn't played CTF game for a long time so , i decided why not make this a CTF game , But ctf is kinda mainstream and really linear in term of game play, 
      This is when my friend had this idea of <<Why not let the player decide if the want to play it ''Run it down to the flag'' or ''let's just #*@! the other team'' (sorry for the bad words) >>. at this time i had a clear idea of what would exactly be the Core ''gameplay'' (if we can call this gameplay).  To win you have two option :
      1- Capture the flag and bring it back to your's. If you managed to do so , the game instantly stop and you win. 
      2- Kill all the enemy team.
      Now you most be thinking , <<Well how? they will just respawn right?>> well no , because i came up with the idea of limiting the number of time player can respawn using some kind of respawn point system. 
       
      i'll came up with more details later (i have to go to my next class) , but let me know what you think about my idea? what should i add or ajust?

      Hello! I'm new to the scene of video game developing and was wondering if anyone here has any experience developing 2D fighters and are up for making a little test demo to see if the idea would catch on to the public? I have no way of paying but I want to put the demo onto Kickstarter and I will pay a good amount if I get a good amount. Please, if you want to contact me for more info, add me on my Discord or Twitter. Thank you, and see you later!
