Good to know that you are still working on this. I haven't heard any news from the programmer since december. By the way, this game deserves another thread of it's own  ;)

oh my. That is beautiful. If it plays half as good as it looks and I see no reason why it shouldn't then I cannot wait for that.

My only complain is that it looks like being speccy sized aka "the 256x192 of speccydeath".
 :laugh:

anyway, nice colourdfull graphics with very well used palette (clear difference between background palette and foreground's one)...

then the question : does this game somewhat scroll or is it a screen-by-screen type of game ?


Reminds me a bit of Adam's Family from OCEAN, and Rick Dangerous of course (capitano Obvio to the rescue).
Also perhaps some bits of Switchblade as well due to the size of main sprite...


So please pelase please, if this preview is only showing the playfield, pelease try to add some HUD so the screen would be actually bigger than "256x192"...

from 256x224 to 256x256 would be great, just hope you'd have enough RAM left...

anyway most speccy sized games would get like 1/3 of the screen occupied by HUD.
Here we can see that the whole space is used by Playfield so, it is not too bad anyway

Also : a plus mod so the palette could be even better ?


BTW can't wait to write run"rick3 on my CPC... ;)

The main problem in Amstrad when the graphics are drawed in mode 0 is that everything is very confused on screen, then my principal aim is to avoid it.
Actually the game is screen by screen type because is better for cpu, the screen now is 256x192 to save memory and now we have enough ram for enemies,traps,doors,keys,etc


Patience, It´s very pòssible the game"rick3" be ready this year. ;)

One question. 64k or 128k? I think that Javier didn't tell me what you were aiming for.


By the way, this conversation should be moved to a new thread in the games section.

Hey, guys, we nowadays are working on this
Nice mock-ups. Great to use the english language for the game title. I hope the same ingame!  ;D 
Il prefert the player with dark-blue hairs, but brown is more readable and natural.  ;) 

[attachimg=1] [attachimg=2]

If you don't know how many RAM will be used, that mean you are just starting the engine design?
With a fixed screen display, it should be nice to have a bigger screen area. (144x224 is a fine "8-bit" alternative)

By the way, good luck!  8)

I think that they are not mockups. I tested an early beta a few months ago and it had 3 completed screens already, with the main character moving and jumping.

@sad1942:Nice looking game. I hope it is finished one day :) (I know how long it takes to finish a game)

Your team should take all the time they need. I think design it as you wish and don't listen too much to the wishes of people. Your team knows what they want :)
Do as you want and then the game is *your* vision and that will make you more happy then trying to make it into the game that other people want.

Experience is great and can be put towards another game if you wish that. If you choose to make it with a smaller screen then do so, you will learn how to manage memory, cpu etc and make more next time.

I find it is impossible to make everybody happy - so don't do that. Make your team happy!

When it's released expect both positive and not so good reviews. But continue to develop a thick skin ;) And then when you're ready do the next one.

I can't agree more than with what arnoldemu says. The game looks stunning as it is. You know the project best so just take as much time and take it in whatever direction you want.
I'm really looking forward to seeing what happens with the project. If the code is a match for the quality of the graphics it will be special

When I don't see score / live, graphics change from one to other screens, I can think that. But nice, if it already run. :)
