Done! (Actually I sent the e-mail a few minutes ago, but I read the thread; and I finished the game a little earlier than that, except I wrote a (short) readme.)

Here it is:

StarSearcher.zip

It requires .Net 2.0.

Feel free to change the numbers in level.txt to make it more fun; I didn't have much time to tweak it [grin]

Also, my 'random level generation' uses a really crappy algorithm. Can you guess what it is?

I put mine up on my site (see above) because all in all it's about 4MB, a little big for an email.

Great, good job everybody who participated! Also, if you've only tried.

The experience is awesome :)

I'm parking my old bones in the bed now, it's 2am here and i'm not that young (coughcough).

G'Night!

More information: the game is Run!, and adventure game where you dive into a generic ACME dungeon in search of the GHLLAUP, with the stars as your allies and protectors. Solve enigmas and puzzles, discover unbearable truths and escape out of the dungeon alive!

buy this game! or not

You can download the game here, or get the source code here.

The game engine can be re-used for other adventure games (it is written in Objective Caml, and uses a proprietary script to describe the rooms in the game).

are you loading files at runtime? some IDEs change the file path when running the application through the IDE.

Sorry it's a little late, I couldn't find your e-mail address. I grabbed the one from your profile, correct address?

TIE Fighter 2D Redux.




I wish I had another 30 minutes to add the X-Wings shooting back. It's almost impossible to die right now. =/

Easiest way will probably be to maintain the directory structure... eg.. if your sprites are in the /debug folder, then keep the debug folder in your zip of the game (With all the sprites in it).

Wow... I'm impressed. I'd have to say my favorites are Star Cowboy, Endurion's, and StarPirateLaser.

With mine, I was inspired by Chip's Challenge and other similar puzzle games. I didn't have nearly enough time to implement all the level elements or to design levels, though.

At least I did better than last time.

Yeah, I get the same error.

It almost looks like a BSOD flashes in the console window, then your title screen comes up and the error pops up.
