It seems that Azpiri is back in the 8 bits... it looks really great!

Update:


It's a trilogy: Nogalious (platforms-rpg), Mirilla (action with scroll), Dragorieta (graphic adventure/conversational)

Nogalious will have 2 screens on the Amstrad CPC (one for the classic and one for the plus)

The 8bit team: JavyMetal, Rafa32 & Errazking.

studio co-workers: Azpiri & daughter, Gryzor (locomalito) for the music and effects, Pau (graphic artist from Mexico), Raul Nogales for the PC version.

The idea is to release games continuosly and if all goes well, physical editions.

Soon more screenshots of the game.

CPC, MSX and ZXspeccy share common CPU and have some common graphic specs (256x192 or 128x192 on CPC)... it is not the biggest deal to perform a full cross-port while at original dev.

Same with tilesets, better to do all of them with variant for each Machines if same dude performs it at development step.

Also I guess all game production company would do many versions for many machines already in the 80s.


Can't wait for a nice RPG on CPC at last.

Yes but you are not using them specific features of every computer. I mean, probably base version will be Spectrum one (as in 80s) and other versions (MSX, CPC) will be simply ports.


In any case, CPC doesn't support any resolution similar to Spectrum (128x192 is not directly supported unless you uses cropped mode 0). Mode0 = 160x200, Mode1 = 320x200, Mode2 = 640x200. To use same tileset it will be probably a cropped Mode1 game.


Anyway let's wait to see the game  :)

Hi


If you want to know if there are only spectrum ports , the answer is no.


In fact, all of these version are ports from the PC version, in the way that it is the version to clone


The CPC game is on mode 0, and his sprites & tiles are designed especially for CPC, like all other versions.


The music uses Arkos tracker (CPC, ZX, MSX) and Goat tracker for the c64 version and all are composed by Gryzor87


At this point there are versions of every 8 bit machine runnig the game, but the CPC version is still the most advanced version, (I only have 2 weeks programming 6502 ASM).


Sorry for my english

Oh wow, I'm ready to back this, but it's a bummer that the only retro physical edition that makes any sense is the MSX cartridge at €50 (+€30 for shipping???!!!). Plus they don't have tiers for the (lovely) t-shirts apart from the mega-donor ones,so it kinda forces you to spend less money.


A pity, but I just backed it nonetheless, it's very exciting :)
Title: Re: Nogalious [New game in the oven]
Post by: ldaneels on 17:34, 26 October 17
Yeah, the funding goal, stretch goals and above all the prices for a physical edition are completely outrageous. I was really interested until I saw the prices. These guys are way out of touch with reality. Too bad.
Title: Re: Nogalious [New game in the oven]
Post by: Javy Fernandez on 17:45, 26 October 17

this week we will do an update of prices, rewards, shipments and clarify many issues.
Thank you for supporting the project. ;)
Title: Re: Nogalious [New game in the oven]
Post by: ldaneels on 08:49, 27 October 17
Well, I can appreciate the efforts put into development, but gating "interesting" content (as I assume it would be given the price) behind a 100€ price tag when I can get most homebrews for free and commercial CPC stuff for 15-30€ (think Doomsday, Orion Prime, Magica, Cahautemoc...) is beyond shocking. I'm not sure what on earth could possibly be worth a 75€ markup!
Now, I know that I could get the game for CPC (changed from the 100000€ funding goal you initially had posted, which is a marked improvement - in fact my reaction came from the initial funding goal) for 25€, but a barebone release on tape for that price is weird (see Matranet, Polyplay, Binary Zone, Cronosoft... for reasonable prices). To put things into perspective I didn't even pay 25€ for Shovel Knight, which is by far the gold standard in retro gaming and offers tons of content, not even commenting on the additional DLCs.
Maybe putting pictures of what we'd get for the base edition and collector's edition would go a long way to prove me wrong (and I'd love to be proven wrong and support your endeavour).
I don't mean to be so harsh, I actually welcome any new game & want to support any effort, but this is dangerously close to highway robbery (it is to me). I'm glad some people feel like spending this much on something unproven, but a 25000€ funding goal is a big ask without any kind of demo, details, pictures of the physical release (even a mock up would be a great start).
Title: Re: Nogalious [New game in the oven]
Post by: Gryzor on 12:53, 27 October 17
I'd say, let's not get into price discussions. We've been over these issues time and again. If the guys think it'll cost that much (remember, it's a multiple-platform release), then that's that. If someone thinks it's not worth it, don't buy it, and preferably start another thread to discuss retro releases pricing. 


The structure looks better now, but I'm a bit confused :D I pledged €15 and now the tier is gone. Now there's a €7 tier for digital releases and a €12 for a physical copy. Do I downgrade? And how do I get both physical and digital? And how do I get the CPC physical, the digital 8-bit AND the PC release? And what exactly is the 8-bits collectors' box? And is the €150 tier the only one where I can get a t-shirt?


I really want to back this to the fullest extend I can, but:


-it needs more publicity. Feel free to take over the Wiki's front page if you want to communicate it! Do you want to put an announcement on the forum? Send an email out? Let us know how we can help!
-the tiers need more and careful restructuring


Really want this to happen :)
Title: Re: Nogalious [New game in the oven]
Post by: ldaneels on 14:27, 27 October 17
I guess the main issue is the lack of info on what you are paying for. I have been known to spend inordinate amount of money for some retro games (La Mulana 2 stands as a clear example in my case), but I've always done so because I knew what I was getting into (and will have no regrets if it goes awry).
I don't necessarily mind paying 25€ or 100€, but not without minimum info. Also, if you have a 75€euro markup for some special collector's edition, you absolutely need to make sure you communicate on what it includes. Multiplying the price by four and asking people to believe it's worth it without any kind of info is a very big ask...
The thing is that I am actually very interested in the game and it sure looks very nice, but it all looks like a cash grab at the moment (feel free to disagree, but anyone with common sense would see that - even though a lot has been done to correct the most egregious aspects of the campaign) and I feel frustrated because everything is so vague and non-commital and give me absolutely no confidence in the project. There just isn't any info available to justify that kind of funding goal and price.
If you have some info putting things into perspective, I'm all for it, as I've said, I'm actually really interested, but I won't go in blindly and I seriously advise people against buying into something without minimum info. Kickstarter is known to house ill-advised projects (well, at least it has not been posted on Indigogo) and a modicum of caution is always prefereable, especially when everything is so vague.
As for price setting, I totally agree that everyone is free to define what something is worth, but there is a minimum you need to show and explain to prospective buyers. You can't expect people to blindly follow you (can you? maybe I'm just not in touch with today's society).
Title: Re: Nogalious [New game in the oven]
Post by: Gryzor on 14:56, 27 October 17
So the problem is not the price (which was pretty clearly what you meant in your previous post, among others), but the lack of info. I totally agree on that. I don't think it's a money grab to be honest, I just think whoever is doing the campaign hasn't thought it through and possibly doesn't understand how tiering works. So I'm hopeful it'll get better...
Title: Re: Nogalious [New game in the oven]
Post by: ldaneels on 18:02, 27 October 17
Well, the price sure did make me react, but as I said, the core of the issue is the lack of info available and the leap of faith required. Paying a high price with the right info is not an issue if it's justified (that would be my evaluation of the project and is purely subjective).
As a sidenote, a lot of the contentious parts have been modified since the begining of the kickstarter and most of the beef I had initially has been corrected.
As you said, it might be more a case of a poorly planned kickstarter, but I can't imagine you'd go in asking for 25000€ (and, initially, 100000€ to get a CPC version!) without any kind of plan in the first place. If I wanted to be a complete ass (but am I not?), I'd even raise an eyebrow about the fact that the planned CPC version, for which a stretch goal of 100000€ was set, is now a sure thing... minus the 75000€ to fund this specific version. Ahem.
Well, the point is moot, I'll follow the kickstarter and decide what I want to do, but my advice would be complete transparency on the project and what paying for gives you, not just vague promises. I certainly hope I will eventually be convinced to participate, as the game itself looks sweet and I had been excited about it when it was first revealed, but I certainly am not buying blindly.

Hello, I am the head of the 8-bit development team of the Nogalious game, and first of all, I want to tell you that I understand you very well and, of course, I will try to clarify all your questions.


It is true that our kickstarter campaign was not very well created and made many mistakes, but this is our first campaign, and we must learn a lot, but the key is that we want to learn to get their support.
In fact, you can see that yesterday we made a big update on it.


Prices will not be a problem, as you can see in our latest update, we offer an MSX cartridge for € 25 and a luxury box with a physical copy of each 8-bit version (CPC, MSX, Spectrum and C64) for only 25 €, we positively believe it is not expensive.


The objective was another error, because you could think that if we did not reach the € 100000 will not be made the CPC version, but this is not true, in fact, all these versions will be done anyway, the C64 version was the only one initially and will not be done, but in the end yes.


I never had in mind not doing 8-bit versions, it's true that the kickstart campaign was not well done, but, here I am here to answer all your questions.


The game is a platform game inspired by Maze of Galious, the CPC version is made in CPCtelera, MSX has a solid version C game, and C64 is in pure ASM, the spectrum is the only one currently in conceptual phase of AGD


The screenshots seen since the CPC version are of the conceptual stage and implemented in AGD, but not in the final game.


Of course, you are right to be aware of a game that you have not seen, and to solve it, I will create a thread in the CPC wiki with the media that we will launch, but at this moment, we can show the code and conceptual art. of the AGD version, and in the next few days, a PC demo of the game.


We do not ask to blindly support our game, but we ask that they support the 8-bit development team of LUEGOLU3GO.
LUEGOLU3GO is mainly a software studio for PC, it is a gift that they invest their money in the 8-bit version of the game, not every day that happens.


From this moment, i personally answer any question anybody want to make me about the game, and solve any doubt about it.

I forget to mention that, as we have made with the MSX community, yours suggestions will be taken seriosly  to make a interesting campaing to the CPC community, Nogalious can be the first of a lot of CPC new games.


Best regards


P.D. The game physically will be avalible for CPC from 12€

Hi Rafa32gr,
Please accept my apologies for the strong reaction, but it's easy to be cynical these days with so many scams happening on a daily basis. Thanks for addressing some of the concerns & I certainly want to support anyone creating CPC software (or even C64, ZX, MSX - I buy them all - I'm just more into CPC stuff overall).
The thing I had issues with initially is that there were some mixed messages concerning the CPC version that went opposite of what was said initially when the game was unveiled in May. Of course, most of these issues were promptly corrected and addressed (although not openly), so it certainly goes a long way :)
As I said, I am not shocked by the price, which I find very fair. The issue only came up when the only CPC physical release was priced 100€. But you've addressed that. I have no qualms with the price & will probably go with the 100€ collector's edition should the content justify it (or even all three versions if I fall in love with the game).
Speaking of questions, I was wondering if you could describe what each edition includes and if you have mockups of the packaging for each version. In essence, I'm trying to decide whether a collector's edition is worth it or not. So, are there physical extras, in-game extras (as in bonus game content), special artwork... and if so what are they?
I am most definitely looking forward to trying the PC demo and take it from there. Maybe I'll be one of your backers.

As i told you, i understand you very well, its our first campaing and, a lot of mistakes were made.


i'm redacting a post with all the info about all the rewards that affect on CPC game to post here at cpcwiki, with all renders i cant show you what about we are talking, but at the moment i can answer your questions.


Phisically you can buy a cassete in clasical clam shell for 12€, a box like Dinamic deluxe box standar is availible with a phisicall copy of each 8bits version of the game (CPC, MSX, C64 and spectrum).
There are also a collector for 150€ box that includes,


A t-shirt, a poster, everything from the 125 tier and more, all in a big custom collector's box.
- Your name in the credits screen
- Nogalious t-shirt
- Nogalious poster cover by Alfonzo Azpiri
- Digital OST by Gryzor87
- Nogalious secrets book
- PC physical copy
- All 8BIT cassette version !!!

the renders i have at the moments are attached

Can you ask for a refund and then pledge again?

I'm sure there must be a way of doing that because they changed the campaign after it was launched AND people had pledged already.

I understand that you have contribute with 15€? isnt it?
Please confirm me, and i will offer a solution.
T-shirt has 25€ price, Cassete 12€ , deluxe box with digitally and physicall has 25€, then if you want deluxe box+tshirt normally it cost 50€ but, if you are interested i can talk to Raul to do an offer including it.


P.D. Digital copy of all version are included in the 8bit collector box (25€)

What will be the differences between CPC Classic and Plus versions ?
Hardware Sprites, more and best colors on screen, hardware scroll or others ?

No, sorry, at the moment there will not be a cpc+ version of the game except for the loading screen.
The game has no scroll, its a multi screen platform game, like Maze of Galious.

Yes, my pledge is €15, but I don't have a problem with changing it and pledging more :) Is there really a physical/digital combo? The €25 tier doesn't say anything about a digital copy (and which platform will that digital copy be for?).

This looks interesting.

Are the MSX cartridges and boxes exclusive for Kickstarter or are you planning to keep producing them to be sold on a regular shop?

No physical CPC floppies in a box means no backing from me but best of luck!

Are the MSX cartridges and boxes exclusive for Kickstarter or are you planning to keep producing them to be sold on a regular shop?

No physical CPC floppies in a box means no backing from me but best of luck!

Sorry but we dont have any supply of 3" disk , we dont want to use used media.
The MSX and C64 cartridges will be avalible later.

What are the requirements for the PC game? I suppose MSDOS on a 386 with an EGA card isn't enough (sadly).

If it is a Windows game, I assume that it is using DirectX... so no, the 386 will probably not run it  :)

Eh, I had to ask. Ever since Brian Provinciano made Retro City Rampage an MSDOS game (486,VGA, PC speaker), I have unrealistic expectations. Besides, if the puny Z80 can run it...

I think it should be possible to do such games even in 286 if there is no scrolling involved, just static screens. Then with VGA hw scrolling and some really fast soft sprite routines more could be possible. I remember Jazz Jack Rabbit running well in 386DX.
It's not easy of course, there are many performance issues with old PCs, but I like that the 90s gamedevs and demoscene took the challenge and achieved more than typically possible. Today, when someone goes back to retro PC coding for nostalgia, doesn't do as good job at optimizing as it used to be imho.

Whatever happened to the Amstrad release of this game.  I found the PC version of it on steam, currently available for £1.79 until 1st Nov - https://store.steampowered.com/app/830410/Nogalious/ (https://store.steampowered.com/app/830410/Nogalious/)

Yes, I've been wondering the same thing.
I backed the kickstarter specifically to see the CPC version come to fruition.  :'(

I had selected the "8BIT EARLY SUPPORTER DIGITAL COPY" option, so I don't get a copy of the PC version.
However, I just purchased the PC version on Steam, since it is so cheap at the moment.

I don't know if any of the 8-bit versions are complete, or if they ever will be.  :doh:

This is why I don't back things in this way, I have considered it but to many projects take much longer than estimated or sink without a trace   hopefully it will come out eventually on amstrad.  Maybe we could I'm the Op and ask, they haven't been active for a few months here.   Maybe I'll buy the steam version too.

Indeed, the PC version is so cheap I'm getting it right away. IIRC they had told me the CPC version would be late, for which I'm not particularly bothered to tell you the truth... Sure, the delay is big but, eh...

Please let us have your feedback on the PC version, seems to get well reviewed but is tough.

I thought they had abandoned the CPC port. Seems they are still working on it, marvelous!
Back when it was on Kickstarter, I backed it. Still haven't received my Cover artwork signed by Azpiri. Ah...well.
