Hello Guys, 

I am happy to announce the release of Algo Bot on Steam on February 14th, 2018.

Algo Bot is a puzzle game which challenges players to control the movements of a lowly maintenance droid aboard the pan-galactic colonization ship Europa. Over 46 levels, players must devise algorithms to carefully control Algo Bot’s path, borrowing concepts from the programming world - including variables and subroutines.

In the rich single-player story campaign, Algo Bot meets PAL, a cantankerous and aloof line manager, and Gemini, the cheerfully eccentric shipboard computer. When a routine recycling job goes horribly wrong, Algo Bot and this unlikely band of heroes must work together to save the sleeping colonists on board the Europa.

Algo Bot blends basic programming skills with gameplay to make a fun, creative and ultimately satisfying puzzle game.

      I have been making my game 2d in Unity and almost immediately came upon this 2D tile rendering issue.
      All I've found online, and am using, is a hack to fix it which includes separating them all, and in some cases drawing lines in between every single tile to match colors.
      I'm wondering if anyone else has this issue and how to fix it. 
      Also, @CrazyCdn here's what I meant. You see streaks across the tiles that shoudn't be there.


      Also, here's a youtube video of that exact problem

      I'm developing an engine for a 2D game in C ++ and for some days I've been looking for a way to protect the images and audio of my future game. I know there is no 100% protection and that someone would be able to open these files, but I mean the regular user who just installed the game, prevent it from modifying the sprites, change the sound, overwrite the xml files with game map data.
      I downloaded some games made in Unity and noticed that a .assets extension is used, in Diablo 2 it is used .ma0, .mpq, .data, in FEZ .pak, in Super Meat Boy only a .tp file. In other words, you can not open and edit any of these files in a text editor or unzip with winrar, they offer a minimum level of protection. How is this done? Do I have to create my own binary file format or is there any program that makes it easier to work?

      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.

       
      A TRULY RAGE INDUCING EXPERIENCE!
      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.

       
      GAME FEATURES
      VARIETY OF LEVELS
      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.

      A HARDCORE CHALLENGE
      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.

      A TRUE 3D PLATFORMER EXPERIENCE
      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.

      GAMEPAD SUPPORT
      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.
      SLOW MOTION EVENTS
      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.
      ADRENALINE MODE
      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.

      IMMERSIVE MUSIC AND SOUNDS
      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.
      VOICE ACTING
      The game features fully voice acted characters such as Kyera, your guide to the game.

      AWARD SYSTEM
      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.
      LEVEL SELECTION
      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.

      CAMERA FILTERS AND OTHER CUSTOMIZATION
      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.
