Edwin Abbott Abbott's Flatland
« on: 18 Aug 2005, 18:52 »
This is my first project and I try directly make something original.

Edwin Abbott Abbott's Flatland is a social satire from year 1884. It places itself to 2-dimensional world, where people are polygons, the more angles, the higher social class. Highest class are circles and lowest class are women which are bare lines.

The demo version of the game is found here:

You are a red square and you can walk around the game area, where wanders other polygons, too. You can also call a sphere from 3D world to Flatland.

Anything more you cannot yet do, but I think this will become an adventure, whose happenings follow the book's happenings.

** sigh **

How hard is it to read the freakin' FORUM RULES and then to follow the freakin' rules?

Your first screenshot is not an IN-GAME screenshot ... that's a title/menu screen which the rules clearly state does not count as a screenshot.

Update the post with another IN-GAME shot, or I am going to lock this thread.

Now there's two screenshots. There's no much difference in them, but I think that almost all the game will happen in the same big scrolling area.

I love it!
I had no idea that Flatland was so biting - women are straight lines? Yeowch!
I also didn't know Abbott's middle name was Abbott. How inspired!
