Untitled shmup roguelite
Small mockup of what I imagine the bird to look like.
vid + gameplay
I've decided to design this game for mobile first, so I'm trying to come up with an interesting control scheme that will also allow for interesting gameplay.
I implemented an idea of it in the latest build, which I would be very appreciative if I could get some feedback on : https://drive.google.com/open?id=0By79FfszQd8wX1BWaXNjR3E4UzQ
UP / DOWN / SPACE
W / S / M
Please let me know what you think. As you play it, imagine that you can tap on the upper part of the screen to move up, lower to move down and right side of the screen to shoot. Obviously this is still a rough implementation of the idea and the game hasn't been changed yet around it, but before I commit I need to get some feedback as it would require an overhaul of the whole level design / enemies, etc. Please refrain from giving feedback regarding content and all that stuff, as it's all just thrown together to make sure the systems work and nothing is balanced.
Weapon spread is now a thing
it can get pretty crazy, pretty fast.
New build available.
Please try it out and give me some feedback!
Added a lot of new content, fixed bugs, etc. There are a lot of issues left and some level chunks are too difficult I find. Will tweak for the next build!
bug gone wild
That's a bug? This is coolest GIF I've seen so far in this devlog, to be honest.
Oh wait... Or you meant that space worm?
@DleanJeans The bug is that there were too many xD but yeah, I think it looks awesome
New players will have to go through the painful process of hatching.
haha nice idea! :)
I like the style of the game! :)
Announcing Super Gemini Bird!
I've been joined by @thronecode to work on the game, which is now called Super Gemini Bird. The design goals remain the same, but he has lend me a hand with the art and is doing an amazing job. We're gonna go all in and try to make it into a commercial project, getting it on steam and such.
I think this is a big step forward into getting the game to the next level and I'm very happy with where it's going! Hope you will like it too.
our pixellated cast
You will now get the help from a bunch of friends during your adventure.
Placeholder graphics for now, obv.
Super bad news. The artist abandoned the project for personal issues - nothing to do with me or his work in the project. So, moving forward I will be working on the project alone until I find an artist for hire and go from there.
Wish me luck :)
Looking at the last gif, I think it reminds me of Jazz Jackrabbit a little :-)
Very excited to show you guys some of the key art for Super Gemini Bird. Made by the talented Paola Tuazon (@paolatuazon)
What do you guys think? Smiley
