haha, yeah, the speed is probably caused by me playing it quickly to show some of the bigger stuff in the game Wink

these first levels are pretty easy that people can play and complete them at any speed they want so that it's easy to get into the chaos of Gunslugs Wink 

That command h.q. area will also contain some tutorial stuff to get players to learn the controls and such

A new update video of the Gunslugs 2 gameplay footage. This shows a few of the early levels of the game, including the first end-boss and the new and improved train section:

Work started on the missions, and the interactive game-hub. This "command HQ" area will be used to select your character, change music and control settings, and get information on the current mission.

Is the video sped up or is it just your game being so fast paced? Shocked

Anyways, the game looks very polished, I would definitely play it even in it's current form. Good job. Cheesy

It's actually fast paced Wink  but it's also possible to play the game a bit more tactically and slow, will depend on the type of player (which was a pain to get right)
5  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Gunslugs 2 - 5th week of development on: 2014-08-05 08:05:22
so I created a new gameplay video showing the progress the game is making, I updated the main post, but here it is again:

You work for orange pixel Shocked! That must be awesome, I love their games.

actually, I am Orangepixel Wink   only the music is done by someone else, Gavin, at http://gavinharrisonsounds.com

Are you going to be releasing its source along with it? This may be a stupid question, I'm new here though. I'd love to use it to learn from. This type of style just intrigues and motivates me. I want to be able to create something similar! I could do it, I just don't have all the best algorithms made up for certain things yet. I'm still having to watch tutorials here and there for certain things. Any tips? Smiley

Thanks!

nope not releasing the source Smiley   only tip I can give: try, try, and try more!  you can google for most things these days, and other than that it's just trying stuff and figure out how it works Wink
8  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Gunslugs 2 - 5th week of development on: 2014-06-13 14:43:55
yeah the bug is fixed, altho only happened cause I made the level shorter for the demo Wink
9  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Gunslugs 2 - 5th week of development on: 2014-06-07 09:41:10
Haha, high quality games as always orangepascal. I like how you've made the terrain out of slightly misaligned tiles instead of the somewhat standard practices used now of making a world of squares.

Also that art style and gameplay pace is great.

Thanks, still a long way to go, but it's really starting to come together gameplay wise

A little preview of Gunslugs2 currently in it's (updated) 10th week of development, this week adding a great train-ride:

Great job, I've been really in the mood for a game exactly like this.

This is now my default go-to game, and I've been playing it every day since it came out.

Now if only I could figure out how to actually use a strategy other than HOLD DOWN SHOOT AND GO LEFT AND RIGHT, haha :p

One part of the strategy is to use your portals wisely. They regenerate your health, so open them as soon as possible, but only try to go thru them when you get lower than 3 hearts.  Staying in the same level as long as possible is usually easier than jumping into the next level which will start slightly more challenging.

12  Games Center / Showcase / Re: Groundskeeper 2 on: 2014-04-12 07:19:56
This might be a dumb question, but how do you go about creating a video of your game running on your mobile device? I've been trying to make a video for mine but am unsure how to do it for mobile games. Every option I have tried records at a lousy 8 frames per second which gives terrible video.

the trailer video was actually captured from a Samsung Galaxy with a usb to HDMI setup.  A bit more professional setup (thanks to Denis a http://dhcg.co.uk)  other than that, not really sure how to best capture mobile video Smiley

13  Games Center / Showcase / Re: Groundskeeper 2 on: 2014-04-09 13:12:27
No the voices are thanks to the talented Ed Mace (https://twitter.com/edmace)
He did the soldier and "nerd" voice, and arranged someone to do the female voice.

First time I added voice-acting to any game, but really like how it ended up Smiley
14  Games Center / Showcase / Groundskeeper 2 on: 2014-04-09 09:06:51

I work together with the fellow Dutch guys at Abstraction games who also ported Hotline Miami and a host of other vita games..

We are porting my Gunslugs to PS Vita now (http://gunslugs.com)  and will be released in October, and then Heroes of Loot is one of the other games we have on a list of interesting things Smiley
20  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: Heroes of Loot on: 2013-09-05 20:16:21
Release is nearing!!   Thanks to everyone trying out the beta and more awesome those who donated!

The full version has improved A LOT since the beta, it will now run much better with regards to opengl2 crashes (now only requires opengl1) and better resolution support, and even controller support is added  all thanks to great work from the guys at LWJGL and LibGDX (desktop version runs on libgdx).

The game itself has also seen a lot of improvements, more content, better gameplay, great music, etc, etc..

Release date will be September 12th, and you can find all the info here: http://www.heroesofloot.com/

A download link will be made available for the desktop version by then, and I'm working on getting all those who donated to the beta an updated version of the game file!

Game will also be available on Android, iOS, Ouya, nVidia Shield and Gamestick.  A PS Vita version is planned for later this year / early 2014ish





21  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: Heroes of Loot on: 2013-06-25 19:02:15
Your Ouya port uses libgdx? Crazy!

Fun game, looking forward to the final version.

haha libgdx for the desktop version Wink but we can tell the world it does!
22  Games Center / Showcase / Re: Meganoid - Grandpa's Chronicles now released! on: 2013-06-23 19:33:45
that would have been very fast Wink  I'm still working on the full version of Heroes of Loot! Cheesy
You still are'nt finished? I thought it was done! I played it a half an hour, and had to go. That game is awesome! What else could you add?

lot's of fine tuning, adding extra monsters, couple of rare items, etc Smiley
just uploaded a new gameplay video of the latest build (non public) played on Ouya -

23  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: Heroes of Loot on: 2013-06-23 15:54:02
Just uploaded a new preview, this time of the game running on Ouya (same code base!)

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/jF3wR7DW5Ks?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;start=" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/jF3wR7DW5Ks?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;start=</a>

still lots of stuff to do, but you can already see a lot of the changes and tweaks since the beta
24  Games Center / Showcase / Re: Meganoid - Grandpa's Chronicles now released! on: 2013-06-23 14:15:05
it's not a problem if people learn things faster Wink  it does get explained for those that don't ! Wink

26  Games Center / Showcase / Re: Meganoid - Grandpa's Chronicles now released! on: 2013-06-21 10:05:18
Another one already!? It seems like you just released Heroes of Loot! Man, I was I could code/art as fast as you apparently can.

The original Meganoid2 was already done for android and iphone with 80 levels and released long before Heroes of Loot.. so porting it to desktop and adding the new stuff wasn't month's of work Wink

Meganoid - Grandpa's chronicles! - Orangepixel

200 levels of torturous platforming is ready for you! Smiley

With a brilliant sound track done by Gavin Harrison, I hope you'll have a couple of hours of gameplay fun with this.  
After my first steps to desktop gaming with the Heroes of Loot beta, it's now time to take a big step and release a first full desktop game.

The game is very simple to play, left+right arrows and up,x or space to jump.
Use Alt+Enter to switch between fullscreen/windowed mode.

The game is a HARD ! The original Meganoid was often compared to Super Meat boy, and this sequel is not made easier :p

Grab the demo or the full version here:

Let me know if you run into ANY issues!  twitter @orangepascal





28  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: Heroes of Loot on: 2013-05-26 11:06:37
Looks like a great game, i might try it soon.
Even watching the vid is really fun haha Smiley.
To bad there is no ideal, since you're dutch, but ill get my paypal on soon.

Im wondering, how is "pay what you want" working out for you?

this is basically pay what you want to see if there is an audience for my type of games on pc/mac, and also as I wasn't 100% sure the game would run on enough systems without issues.. so it's really a trial run for more awesomeness Wink

but I must say I'm really honored by the awesome amounts of donations and the height of some of those donations, really opened my eyes that pc/mac market is next on my list of platforms to support!

so as an experiment it really was a success and I'll bring the full version and my other games to desktop when I get around to it!

29  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: Heroes of Loot on: 2013-05-26 08:51:58
Just found this gem here.

Needed to switch to Java 6 on OS X (crash on Java 7 due to older lwjgl), but a very fun and addictive game to play!

Donation on its way. :-)

/ A fellow Dutch indie developer.

I have a new build with the lwjgl fix in, so that crash will be fixed when I can clean it up and upload, same with people having only opengl1 support and crashes on startup due to that.

just have to find a fix for some texture-tearing on some computers :/ lot's of white lines between background tiles

thanks for the donation fellow Dutchie ! Smiley
