I'm thinking of putting together a completely new entry over the weekend if time permits.

I tried but it has imploded in upon itself...

I had it mostly working but then I messed around with the code and everything went to hell fast...

Out of time and patience so best of luck to all who survived this MAGS!

So far my project hasn't exploded, 1 day left though. It's heating up. 8-0

I have to go out to lunch today with a friend but after that I will probably have another look at my code. Usually after I step away for a while the problem sticks out like a sore thumb and I can't believe I couldn't see it before.

Hopefully I can pull it together because it could be quite a fun, if simple, game.

I got a little ahead of schedule, but then spent hours today getting an intercept equation to work. I think I have it now.

If nothing comes up tomorrow, I should be able to finish it.

Gwen Darkly: Intro to the First Case - Mini Demo



This download link or
this alternate download link if the first one doesn't work for you.

Sadly, I didn't manage to complete my game on time, the scope was too big. However, I thought to upload something for MAGS as a form of respect towards the competition. :=
(Even though it's a demo, it should still count as an entry, right?)

This is just the first dialogue part of the game that introduces the case (it's a detective game). I will finish the whole game later, either during this month or the next month.

Racist (Mk. 2)

Racist is a kinetic racer (think Asteroids without the asteroids). Complete 4 "story" tracks or play arcade mode. Beat Chad in the last race to learn his true motives.







Download (Windows)
Download (Linux)

CONTROLS: Up, Down, Left, Right
BOOST: Z
FIRE: F

Your ship is now exactly as fast as Chad's. They are still the two fastest ships in the game. Damage will slightly decrease top speed.

(Linux version added)
(Fixed a weapon spawning bug)

Actually, having missed the deadline was probably a blessing in disguise for me this time around:

I realized today that I had wanted to expand the rather simple puzzle-based game that I didn't get working into something with a bit more meat on the bone.

And then I realized that I actually started work on the game last Saturday, which was February 3rd.

So then I realized that I can legally enter it in THIS month's MAGS.

And THEN a whole storyline and game that I can use the puzzle mechanic in came crashing into my head out of nowhere on my bicycle ride home from work (which is where I come up with most ideas)...

Long story short: I'm in for next month's MAGS!

For some weird reason, the black creature in Gwen Darkly reminds me of the Mother/Queen Ing from Metroid Prime 2: Echoes.

Anyway, good luck with all the entrants.

I forgot to change the thread title to (VOTING) so some folks might have missed it. Well miss no more. You still have just under a week to vote.
