Prirates



  • I took part in another game jam this weekend that had the theme "with our powers combined", for which I made a shmup about 3 pirates that shoot different color beams that correspond to Xbox buttons (although you can also play on the keyboard... and I almost prefer that). Anyway, it's called Prirates, and you can download it here:

    Just as a reminder, this game was made in 2 days. I'll probably come back to it at some point and add all the stuff I meant to, like an actual final boss and moving backgrounds.



  • Nice game, thanks for sharing! Liked the pictures between levels!
    So you shoot at enemies with paint?



  • Thanks! There were going to be a lot more - for example, the original storyboard for the cutscene after level 1 had five slides with full dialogue in it, which got boiled down to one mute slide. That's what happens when you start drawing the slides an hour or so before the jam ends.

    The firing is supposed to be a laser, although yeah, now that I'm looking at it again, it does look more like a liquid.



  • @Kyatt Lasers beams don't mix this way. They are supposed to be red, green, and blue. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_mixing



  • @starry-abyss Oh right. At one point in development, I was going to make the 3 prirates red green and blue, but I felt like most people don't readily know (or at least, as readily remember) which primaries form additive secondary colors.
