Title: Parting Gift [New Game - Chaos Rising]
Post by: EgoTrip on 15:17, 15 September 18
I will leave this community on a positive note. Here is my final production for the CPC. It seems a shame to let it all go to waste considerig how much effort I put into it. Someone is working on a loader for it, if that gets finished then feel free to add it to the disk.

Chaos Rising (final version) UPDATED 5/10/18
https://app.box.com/s/w0gldmvlxhhsw8cfmzznebwc72ubwein

It should be complete, although I've not had it playtested properly. It is now completable, thanks to SuTeKH for testing. Controls are Cursors, AZNM or Joystick 1, Space/Fire 1 to examine/use keys, Enter/Fire 2 to drop bombs when acquired. P to pause.

Edit: Fixed the locked door issue on the main compound. Yes I am aware there is a bug that shows up a line of hearts when you start the game but I can't work out what is causing that, and it doesn't affect gameplay. It disappears after you switch screens. Other graphical glitches remain, I just fixed the one bug that was preventing the game from being completed.New version uploaded, fixing all the graphical and audio glitches. Fixed the broken puzzles so the game is now possible to complete.

Um, wait what, it's released... I thought we had a couple of weeks left, well its not far off finished, I guess... gimme a couple of days. I guess the momentum has gone now so.


Wow, this game is something special, so far ...music    :o

So, um anyone?


What format do you need to include this into the game ?


In my software I can save as bin, asm or png

tbh, this is why artists will almost always demand payment upfront, in the event of the programmer just abandoning the project and leaving you stranded (I finally agreed to do this just for the love of the scene and it's also a quality game I was hoping would get a physical release)


Even this stuff takes time, hours and hours.


(I keep thinking, is there even any point now, but please somebody attach this, so I have some closure)

BTW this is absolutely why people ask for payment up front, lots of projects get abandoned and you are left with something you have spent hours and hours on. There is an obvious quality to this game that could have seen it released physically imo, I approached this loader thinking that this would need to be the best thing ever. It's a shame that no one seems to really care now...

We all had hard times on the internet.
I don't think that someone here wants you to leave.
If this is your decision then OK but think about it.
Thanks for all the games you gave for free mate.

I managed to get 28 jewels  ;D


I’ll ask some questions later as to not spoil the fun for anyone.


Definitely a very nice game!

Enjoyable game. :)

if stuck on the room left from the very first one, try moving the blocks somewhere close to the spikes.   :)

This is what I've done but nothing happened (except to loose life).... I use the last version, it may be bugged ?

You have to put a block besides the top left bush, and the other one besides the bottom left one.

OK thank you; not really intuitive in fact...  ;D

Well, not many other things you could do with the elements available, so try everything at will.

Ha i feel an utter failure now at not working this out ...

Yeah, didn't take me long to figure it out and I was trying not to just give away the answer but i guess this one needed to be. :P

I think you went a bit too far here.


We went all the way through to discover what happened to EgoTrip on Xyphoe’s channel and we agreed that there’s been a lot of overreaction everywhere.


That despide the title of the post in question, which I think caught most here by surprise.


Now you say that the CPC community is not supportive enough because there are toxic elements.


Let me break the news for you. There are toxic people everywhere, some are toxic ocasionally, some the whole time. The thing in common is that they are few but you blame the whole community.


Can we just take things calmly?
