Lets make a video game! - Project 16x16

Recommended Posts

Very small description

Open source - Pixel art - 2D Platformer - video game - made using Processing !



Looking for a cool project ? well here is a good one ! Project 16x16 is a 2D Platformer game made using java/processing. You are able to contribute to this project. The goal is to make a cool game in processing together, that includes You. Plus, if you are not a programmer, well this is a game so, we also need cool ideas for gameplay mechanics and story, level designers, also people who can do soundtracks/audio, and artists ! We are already using the amazing industrial tileset made by 0x72, but! Additional art can be added like UI designs, effects and epic bosses for epic boss fights ;)



I started the project on my own, and here are the things I made :

  • Physics
  • Player
  • Level Editor
    •    Item inventory
    •    translation arrows
    •    Level bounding box
    •    Save/Load (JSON)
  • Playable
  • (Part) of projectiles and mirror bloc functionnality
  • (Part) of particle system

So the ‘framework’ of the game is quite advanced, but here are exemple of things that You could add:

  • Entities
  • Projectiles
  • Zooming
  • Multiple layers in editor for : background, middle and front objects
  • Story
  • Gameplay
    • Object 'connection', for exemple when projectile touches glass thing, open platforms
    • Life system
    • Boss fights (Art also needed :D)
  • Level design
  • Audio and soundtrack
  • Main menu, game UI, pause Menu...

What's the overall tone/mood of the game? Serious? Playful? I'm a hobby video game musician (hoping to break into something professional on the side one day), and I've got a lot of my work on both the forums here and on my YouTube channel. 


I have zero experience in making audio/sound effects, but have a few soundtracks I've been making for games that don't exist. 

I may be interested in contributing if you think my stuff might be a good fit! :)

Similarly as the one above, I'd be interested with helping out with the story elements to the game. I'm a semi-professional writer and have some bits and pieces I can show you. Whilst going into the gaming industry is kind of a leap from my usual authoring techniques, I'd like to implement my world-building and other passions.

I'd be more than interested, if you'd take me on, and can provide a contact method if you wish?

I've been studying audio for the past 3.5 years, and specifically game audio the past year and a half and would be super up for making some sound effects for this!
