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.

We are trying that everything fits in 64kb, if not, then we move to 128kb

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.  ;) 



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. :)
