Perils of Poom (if you didn't know)
« on: 16 Jul 2002, 23:43 »
I posted in the old forums - didn't realise the forums had moved. Well, just incase no one knows, demo of Perils of Poom = HERE



And yeah, I now know you can save/load with F5 and F7 despite what the read-me says.

I`ve already found it in the old forum and I like it very much... really cool.

But I am stuck in the room with boxes and the cola-machine... I`ve found a coin in the machine, but what can I do with it? I`ve used it on the vent, in the cola-automat, nothing happens...

You're supposed to use the coin on the vent cover and you find a key inside. Use that on the cola machine panel.

When you've got an inventory item, you use it with the right button and deselect it with the left.

Oops, just one moment... I think I see the problem... I haven`t read your posting before so exactly... I didn`t know about using the right mouse button.... Thanks for the info, I`ll check it out.

If this is your first game dude, which I assume it is, as I haven't seen you around.  Then you are going to go far.  Your game has good graphics, and even better playablity.  And I love a game that includes animations.

Yeah, this is my first game. And thanks any comments anyone's made. I like feedback.

Well, I just uploaded a walkthrough for the demo. If there's any grammar/spelling/punctation errors then feel free to complain and send me threating e-mails. Actually... don't do that.

SPOILER ALERT!









Okay, here's the problem I found with the demo. I never went to see the hackers. I set the bin on fire and got into the ship, and then needed a password. Cos I didn't know where to get one, I decided to go back and see the guys on the streets (Bastard), and then magically the ship turned up and I completed the demo. That's a bug, I presume?

Yeah, its a bug. I know about it. Its been fixed for the full game. It was a really stupid error on my part, when you find out about the hackers, a global variable changes. I initially made it change to the wrong number.

Don't know what to tell you. Maybe you've got a bracket open somewhere. That's usually why that error comes up.

Uh, M, I got the game to look when left click and use when right click, but using the inventory items doesn't work. Can you tell me how to code it?

Just finished this demo, and It was really good! The animations are smooth, and there is an atmosphere in the game that I really like.
Finish this game as soon as possible!

Yeah.. M's here. Just took a long long break from AGS for a while. That's not to say I'm officially back yet, though. Nice to see people still check out my game.

Will the finished Perils of Poom ever see the light of day? I'll go with - possibly. If not, I'll just release the stuff I've done so far (another 1 and a half planets worth) if it comes to that. Getting back into development means relearning all the ags coding and such but nah, i'll give it go if enough people care.

-M-

==EDIT==

Just played thru what I've done so far. Hadn't done so in a while, some of it made me laugh. Dammit, this game WILL be finished. I've got to release at least one completed AGS game anyway!!

I definitely will. I'm up to 53 rooms so far and that makes about half way through the story I planned out. I'm gagging to show you guys the stuff I've done so far but I'll wait until its finished. Was up to 3:00 working on it last night. Progress was quick. This WILL be finished.

Yeah, I'm kinda bored so thought I'd upload a cutscene that takes place shortly after the Perils of Poom demo ends.
DOWNLOAD RIGHT HERE
The game will be released around the end of December, not sure how late, though. Props to m0ds on music. Still got to do some music/sound effex coding.
Er.. have a screenshot.
