Title: Space Quest: "A Son of Xenon"
Post by: Leisure Suit Harry on 15 Jun 2019, 20:30
Hi all,

inspired by the Space Quest Historian's “let's play” series on Youtube I have finally decided to start another Space Quest project – „A Son of Xenon“
I decided to make the game look like SQ3 (or Police Quest 2 or Larry 2) which means: 320x200 EGA graphics with a lot of dithering effects; It's icon controlled, though.

The story starts on Xenon (shortly before SQ I) and we get to know a hardworking smart Roger, a true son of Xenon. We will learn how he became the guy we love and there's this thing with the sun of Xenon, too.

Roger spends the first part of the game in his office and his studio apartment. When Roger is addressed by a woman who is simply too gorgeous to be true, a story of love and betrayal unfolds…

Progress:
Framework plot: 90%
Graphics: I have finished drawing 6 rooms, lots of animations (incl. several death scenes)
Scripting: I am currently scripting the 4th room.
Music: 0%

Xenopolis, one of the major cities on planet Xenon, Earnon system.

Roger's (resp. his colleague Buzz McFly's) office at XenopoTech, one of the leading tech companies.

I am posting this picture on the occasion of the upcoming 50th anniversary of the moonlanding.
And yes, it was all fake. Because the blue planet isn't earth, it's Xenon!  :wink:

I might complete the first coherent part of the game within the next few weeks.
Please let me know if anyone is willing to do some testing.
Thanks!

I am gladly informing you that I have added 2 more rooms and now finished scripting a first coherent part of "Space Quest - A Son of Xenon".
As soon as music/sounds have been added and testing completed I am going to release this first chapter.

Let me know if you need some help with music or sound or play-testing. I love Space Quest and I think my style of music (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQ6MK8gmh7s) might fit. Riffing on classic SQ themes sounds fun.

Looks nice so far. Are you using 16-bit mode or restricting yourself to the 16-bit color palette? Or does it just look that way because of the old-school pixelated graphics?

I am using the EGA color palette (in 320x200 bitmaps)
