Release Something 2012! Time's up!
« on: 02 Jun 2012, 15:20 »
Hello, AGS community. How are you? That's good. What have you been up to? I don't know anymore because you never tell me!

It's time to change this!

It has been a whole darn year since the last Release Something and that means it's time to show us what you've all been working on! Post screenshots, animations, game demos, tech demos, rolling demos, voice demos, code modules, game music, I don't care what it is, but show us!

Show a sneaky screenshot of that super secret AGS game you've been making but don't want to do a GiP thread for. We're curious! Making a game that's not in AGS and so don't want to post it because you're too polite? Post it here! Just learning to draw and you're starting to create some game assets? Show us!

We love you, AGSers. You have until the end of June.

Release something.

FINE, JEEZ, STOP ASKING.

I've been keeping this to myself, but I'm working on some animation stuff (nothing to do with AGS I'm afraid.) Here's a test thingy I've done for it!:



So, there's that!

I might show you guys some stuff from my current AGS thing as well IF YOU ASK NICELY (you don't have to ask nicely.)

(PS Ben why aren't you showing anything you're making me sad.)

Guess there's no need to release Beta 4 when I could just post this screenshot.:) (roll)

This is the current state of my real-time strategy game called "Troopers" - made with AGS!

And this is a game that I started writing in AGS but then switched to a custom engine and C++. It's like a X-Wing/Wing Commander/Free Space game, an action space sim in other words. It's going to be an actual indie game! :) Check out a 380-posts development thread too, HERE!

Quite fine, yet busy here, but thanks for asking :D

I'm working on my novice skills as a painter

Other than that, some time ago (maybe December 2011-January 2012) I wrote this script, testing some sort of simple "Morality" system.

Code: Adventure Game Studio
  1. // Morality.asc
  2.  
  3. // Variables for each morally influenced action
  4. int renegade = 0;  // Increases with bad actions
  5. int paragon = 0;   // Increases with good actions
  6. int fame = 0;      // Increases whenever the player chooses to act, both in a good and bad way
  7. export renegade, paragon, fame;
  8.  
  9. function GoodActDone()
  10. {
  11.   // Happens when the player chooses to act in a good way
  12.   // He becomes less a renegade and more a paragon
  13.   // Fame increases, since he chose to act
  14.   renegade--;
  15.   paragon++;
  16.   fame++;
  17. }
  18.  
  19. function GoodActNotDone()
  20. {
  21.   // Happens when the player chooses not to act when could do a good action
  22.   // He becomes more a renegade
  23.   // He gets no fame, since he avoided to act
  24.   renegade++;
  25. }
  26.  
  27. function BadActDone()
  28. {
  29.   // Happens when the player chooses to act in a bad way
  30.   // He becomes less a paragon and more a renegade
  31.   // Fame increases, since he chose to act
  32.   renegade++;
  33.   paragon--;
  34.   fame++;
  35. }
  36.  
  37. function BadActNotDone()
  38. {
  39.   // Happens when the player chooses not to act when could do a bad action
  40.   // He becomes more a paragon
  41.   // He gets no fame, since he avoided to act
  42.   paragon++;
  43. }

Code: Adventure Game Studio
  1. //Morality.ash
  2. #define TOT_REP (paragon + renegade) / fame
  3.  
  4. import int paragon;
  5. import int renegade;
  6. import int fame;
  7.  
  8. import function GoodActDone();
  9. import function GoodActNotDone();
  10. import function BadActDone();
  11. import function BadActNotDone();
  12.

I suppose I could release something around, say, the 19th of this month...

DKH, that space game looks amazing!

Wow - this thread has a very matrixy edge to it - walls of code that you have to reinterpret in your brain to see the glourious game worlds.

I shall add an aproppriate taste(r) of my current project tomorrow.

Not what I plan to release but instead, rather show.

It's a concept plan of a shooter game. I have it all worked out how I will make but I just don't know yet if I am able to code it as of now :/



Plus Downloadable Outfits for PMQ.Legends and PMQ.Online.

And here's my "something". These are 2 temp (very temp!) images from The Thought Saved for Last where you have to rewire thoughts inside a man's gradually shrinking brain before his mind loses all connection to reality, or even dies. You know - after Snakes of Avalon I decided to make something darker and more serious in tone.



It's going to be a highly non-linear, turn-based adventure game with experimental interface, multiple endings, and this time YOU're the one who constructs the main character's inner narrations and perceptions.

The thoughts you manage to save for the last few turns determine the ending.



I've been working on this for months and the technical side has taken a lot of the time, but starting this weekend I'm finally focusing on finalizing the graphic assets (for AGS 720p), so expect a proper WIP thread within a week or 2. Though I do admit I was wrong in such estimates before.

Does anyone even think Isiah will pull this off? We haven't even seen a single proper game from this guy and now he's doing a shooter with AGS.
Bwahahahaha!

Foolish creature, I have enough on my plate to deal with. I always make up pictures like these to help settle the thought of the game. This is good for me so I don't rush in there and try to start making a new game when I got 50 others to finish.

So I don't plan on working on this until I finished a lot of my other works.

But I plan to release a little Demo or something small of Mile's Adventure.

okay, no GIP thread for this yet, as I work way to little on it, but will concentrate on it again in the future... at least I tell myself so ;)

Thanks Dave! I'm really happy about the game's strange play mechanics. It's going to be pretty different from your traditional adventure game, while still an adventure at its core.

No one's shared any music in the thread so far (unless I've looked over something), so I thought I might share some things I've been working on. I'm doing demos by creating my sheet music in a program called Guitar Pro, which exports horrible-sounding MIDIs, which, when run through a program called GXSCC, makes really neat sounding 8-bit tunes.

My end goal is not to use the 8-bit tunes, but to record actual versions of the songs with real instruments. I've done a real instrument demo of one of the songs, but I'll share the NES-style versions first:

The Grand Tour (you may recognize this one as an entry in the tunes contest -- it was called 'Keystone Chase' there).

Port Cumulus Rag - This version has a click track, but won't in the real version. This will be a single guitar played in the style of Etta Baker with perhaps a jug bass accompaniment. Here's a PDF of the sheet music & tablature if you'd like to play along at home.

AQ Theme - This is the main theme song for my game / my future transmedia empire. Two verses with lyrics with an instrumental section in between. No vocals on either this version or the one below. I'm not sharing the lyrics either, suckers.

AQ Theme (real instruments) - Here's a demo of the AQ theme with actual instruments. The guitar plays the melody for the lyrics during the verse, and some improvisational soloing during the instrumental bit (though I transcribed the improvising for the above version, and now it's what I play every time). In the final version, I'd love to replace this guitar with a clarinet (and different music, naturally, as the clarinet is a single-note instrument), but I don't know any clarinetists. Any clarinetists out there in AGS land with access to decent recording equipment?

I've got some other tracks I've been noodling with. I'll try to transcribe them before the end of the month and share some versions here.
