Malfunction - creative sandbox for puzzle-games

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I’m one and only member of mine development team, that means its family business. I’m 27 years old PhD student from Poland and my dream is to make games. I'd love to present you game i'm working on. It's still in pre-alpha stage but i'd love to hear your comments about it.

You can find all info also on my page:

Malfunction is isometric full 3d puzzle - game inspired by Monument Valley and alike. It is based on strictly physic mechanics with a little futuristic twist. The goal may be different each level but what is essential to Malfunction is to use all you can spin, drag, drop, pull, push, throw, spill and swipe to let Our Little Friend precede.

What’s different about Malfunction is that You not only get to experience deep story driven campaign but also and maybe what’s most important You get to create it Yourself. If you like puzzle-games and always thought they are awesome, now you will be able to create it yourself. The biggest part of game will be creative sandbox mode in which you will have access to every item existing in game. Not only will you use them to build your own levels and even group them into campaigns but also script those with build-in intuitive tool. This will allow you to make custom events that happen to Our Little Friend in your adventures.

What’s fun putting so much effort creating when nobody can see it, right?

That’s why you will be able to share your work with other players and let them play it. Of course that also works the other way around.

If that all sounds to you like an idea for mobile game you got it half right. Besides making and playing complicated puzzles that do not fit mobile, there will be special simplified version of game for Android and iOS on which you will be able to play certain campaigns and sandbox levels.

Thanks (Dziekuje ?) for taking the time to post a detailed and illustrated explanation.

However next time I recommend you to use a spelling checker and fewer words. I'm quite intrigued by the gameplay because I'm a puzzle addict and from the graphics it seems the universe is original. Retro, industrial, a bit weird… I like it ! I'm also curious about the sandbox because for the moment it sounds more like an editor. Not a problem even if it is because I'm a creative person but then you shouldn't describe it as a sandbox mode. Last but not least it's understandable to think about mobile players but maybe you should focus first on the PC.

Good luck and one day I hope I'll travel in Poland because I've heard it's a beautiful country !

      I have a design doc I can share, either contact me here, at levgree@yahoo.com, or on Discord (tag is levgre#1415). I am only going over some of mechanics in this post, with more focus on combat than campaign, as combat is the core of the game.  designers could possibly be welcome, at the least I don't ever mind getting additional ideas/feedback.
      Like said in the title, the game is inspired by Darkest Dungeon, but aspiring for deeper and more varied combat/campaign mechanics.
      Theme: the player controls a party of raiders that go on missions, getting loot, building up reputation and experience, etc.  These missions would often be populated areas like towns and forts, but also could be caves, forests, and other settings.  
      The player will control a party of 6 characters.  Changing group formation and individual character positions will be an essential part of strategy for all party compositions.   However, most characters will still be in melee combat, as often the party will be fighting off enemies from both sides (just less often from the rear).
      Characters, both friendly and enemy, will be able to die or be severely injured in one hit, and no magical healing available.  However they will be able to dodge or deflect most attacks until they run out of "stamina", at which point they become sluggish and easier to kill.  So gameplay wise, stamina behaves sort of like the regenerating shield in halo.  However if the player makes a tactical error or puts a character in a situation where they are outmatched, characters could still be wounded even at full stamina.  So individual battles are not the only threat, but also tiring  from waves of enemies.
       The player's group can rest when needed, but that will allow the enemies to ready their defenses or get reinforcements.  So speed and smart stamina management is encouraged.  Although, there will be some level of variety in approach, the player could have a more heavily armored team that slogs through tougher fights, or a lightly armored quick characters for a fast team that relies more on the element of surprise. 
      Weapon and armor choices for each character will be significant strategic decisions, based on battle formation and also the strengths and weaknesses of the party comp/individual characters.
      The exact setting is not yet decided, it could be realistic medieval, high fantasy medieval with demihumans and magical creatures and some level of magic, steampunk, etc..  The "raiders" could be seafaring viking types, fighting in a religious conflict like crusaders, or some of both.
      Thanks for reading, and lmk if you are interested or have any questions.

      Hello! I am building the main scene in Unity for a 3D cards game. My goal is creating "card slots" to place the different cards from a deck and use it as "buttons". The image below represents somehow what I want to develop. I have been reading and I think that I have to generate a canvas and place in my scene the slots where I want to place the cards, but I am not sure about it. Also, to use the cards, I don't know if setting buttons is the best option (maybe I should use images instead).
      All recommendations and tips are welcome
