Pendek - out now!
« on: 17 Apr 2015, 10:56 »
Hi guys,

We've been busily beavering away on our entry for AdventureJam 2015, and it's now finished! Making an adventure game of any depth or substance is SO DIFFICULT to do in two weeks! But hopefully people will still enjoy it :). If you want to, you can also vote for the game HERE for the AdventureJam. Any votes are super appreciated :)



Story:

You are Yandi, a villager who works for the Pandang Logging Company deep in the Sumatran jungle.

An accident leaves you stranded and alone in the jungle. You must survive, you must escape. But who knows what you might come across in the process?

Features:

- A short point and click experience that has inspiration from adventure games of the 1980s, but also has some old arcade game vibes!

- Great original 8-bit soundtrack and sound effects from Soundream Studios

- 320 x 200 resolution

- Strangeness

- Mystery

- Decisions

The first screenie reminds me of Pitfall...

Can't wait to try this out! Whenever I see "shaun9991" on a game release I'm already getting excited!

Wow, Shaun! Just finished it. It is wonderful.
The puzzles were perfect, and also the game is very atmospheric, like, it was quite scary
Spoiler: ShowHide
in that cave, when the protagonist closes entrance behind him. Especially, the parallax scrolling made everything very tense. :D I was expecting some kind of a tribesman at every corner!

I have a question,
Spoiler: ShowHide
what are those Pandeks? Are those based on some real myth in Sumatra, or did you just come up with this idea for the game? Anyways, I'm going to replay the game, from my last save, to see what happens if I kill the Pandek.

Nice job for making this in just two weeks.

Thanks for the nice comments guys :)

Definitely going to have a couple of weeks of game making now - I would not recommend entering two consecutive game jams... so tired :D Super fun though at the same time!

Mandle: Pitfall was definitely an inspiration for the look of the game! :)

BSP: Really glad you enjoyed it!! Your comments gave me warm fuzzies.

Orang pendeks are a legend in Sumatra, I find the stories fascinating. Thinking about making a large game set around the myth one day! You can read more about them here


Aprilskies: Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it! Every day that passes is another day closer to playing Tales - can't wait! :D

Monsieur OUXX: Thanks! :) Hope you enjoy playing it!

So... it's like Bigfoot, but small... Smallfoot? :D
Jokes aside, very cool. I like it when I learn something new from video games. :-)

@Monsieur OUXX, it's blocked for a reason; you should work and play this game later! >:o
I'm sure it won't disappear from the internet until you come back from work! >_>

Downloading it now :) Looks really nice. I can't possibly imagine how insane it must be to make a game in two weeks.

Sweet game, Shaun. I really felt like I was in that jungle. And I really enjoyed the arcadey touches. I thought at any moment I was going to be asked to do a shooting or hurdling sequence, and that in itself was tense :-)
Good work.

this is cool, just completed it! The only thing missing is a slider for the music volume.

@Monsieur OUXX, but, what if you got caught playing AGS game during work and got fired or something similar!? (wrong)
Or, what if by playing this game instead of working some disaster happens and you end up lost in a Sumatran jungle... (roll)

Enjoying it a great deal, but, I ran into the Orang pendek and then get this error msg: in "Room6.asc", line 268, Face Charactger, characters are in different rooms.  Didn't happen during the second play though.

Thanks all for playing Pendek, and especially thanks for all the nice comments! :)

Selmiak: This is a good idea, I will add this in when the voting for AdventureJam is over :)

Cogliostro: Sorry about that! Just had a quick look at the code and it seems okay so I'm not too sure how that happened, but I will add a sure-fix when voting is over :) Thanks for pointing it out!!
