Title: Harry The Hippie
Post by: mchammer on 08 Apr 2006, 14:18
Harry the Hippie is a life simulator game. That means the idea of the game is to stay alive.
So you must try to get a job, eat, exercise,stay out of troubles,have fun...

Harry is "a hiphop guy" and thats why game's music is mostly rap, funk, reggae and soul: Jurassic 5, James Brown, Mighty Diamonds and that kind of music.(I hope i dont brake copyright things a lot... At least the game is free and i have bought all music i have in the game.)

When you play, Harry gets experience and learns new things like cooking, stealing, b-boying and graffiti arts.
The game uses Strazer's character control module (http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/yabb/index.php?topic=28821.0) which makes realistic NPCs possible. They will sleep, go to work and have normal day routines.

The demo is quite big (21mb) because of the music.

Graphics 10%
Music 10%
Scripting 10%

Ugly Duckling is in some ways similar to J5, so you might consider that, or how about some classic ATCQ? About copyrights... I guess you could ask the artists themselves on myspace etc., I bet some underground artists would be happy to contribute.

Thanks for advice.

Ps. The demo is now downloadable.

I really liked ugly duckling -  taste the secret. Ill add it to the game as soon as i order the vinyl. Those raw oldskool drumbeats are quite rare in "newskool rap".

Yay! I'm glad you still use it. I'm interested in seeing it being used in a real game. Don't hesitate to contact me if you run into any issues. Nice game, btw. :)

I myself am working (well... not really working but it's in production... ¬¬) on a quite similiar "life simulation" game, so this really catches my interest. I'm really looking forward to play this when it's ready. :)
