[ RELEASED ] Patchwork - SUMMERBATCH!!
« on: 18 Jun 2012, 16:08 »
Patchwork is a short fantasy point-and-click adventure. It will [hopefully] be a part of Summerbatch.


After a teleportation experiment goes wrong, a young scientist finds himself, and a good part of his laboratory, in someone else's house. In a parallel universe.




Features:
- Two playable characters
- Hand-painted graphics at an astonishingly non-retro 800x600 resolution
- Simple two-click interface
- Minutes of gameplay

Release date: July 2012.

Whatcha ya mean "non-retro"? *pulls out a shotgun* We don't take kindly to such art mumbo jumbo around these parts.

Looks great, as your graphs always do. Just make sure the animations are fluid as well.  :grin:

I do love his graphs. :=

Looks great though, is this the same as the screenshot from the release something thread? If it is they look like very different worlds. :P

Lovely Ilyich! Both backgrounds look great, i particularly like the goldfish ;-D

I notice the two images under the title are not featured screenshots 8-)

Anian: Thanks! The animations are fluid! Both of them! :D (not really, but the animations are quite sparse)

Ben: Indeed, no idea what I've been waiting for. :) Thanks.

Armageddon: Thank you! No, it's a different game from the one in Release Something thread, but they may or may not be connected in some way. (I'm not being cryptic, I just haven't decided if they are yet :))

Chicky: Thanks! I like the goldfish too. In fact, I like it so much that it has 20 frames of animation (fluid!), not just four ;)
And nicely spotted on the title - indeed, there's more than 2 backgrounds in this game. Not by much, though. :)

Nice idea, Ilich, and great graphics too!
I gazed into my crystal ball and saw: Me, hoding a Summerbatch bundle. And it was awesome!

...but then he dropped it and it shattered and was no longer very useful* (roll)

Looking good Ilyich! It seems we have a game of almost every AGS capable resolution now :)

* But thanks to the metaphysical he still got that copy of Summerbatch and owned Patchwork forever more.

Sold to him by a fish-like humanoid thing, who was selling something.

Gorgeous artwork! Reminds me very much of studio ghibli. Cannot wait to have a go at playing this. It's nice to see some non-pixel art games are coming into production now :)

Keep up the good work!
