1  Game Development / Game Play & Game Design / Re: NegativeZero's guide to designing an immersive story. on: 2013-05-28 10:52:43
Has this guide actually helped anyone?
If not, I won't bother to continue writing this.

Made me think about a few interesting points.

I've always kind of lacked a skill in story/character development so this was really helpful. Appreciated, thank you.
2  Game Development / Game Play & Game Design / Re: 2D Platformer - Level Design? on: 2013-05-24 17:31:01
I have watched it, actually. I can't remember too awful much as I fell asleep while watching it, but it was really good.

If you're wanting to know about level "design" as in, how to construct a level to better the player's experience, then watch over that bit again Tongue I can't find a clip on YouTube so I can't provide.

Have you seen Indie Game: The Movie?

There's a point in it where Edmund Mcmillen is talking about Level Design in Super Meat Boy and he raises some interesting points that I think you'll find useful! Smiley

Even without that, I'd recommend watching it.

Let me guess: by pure Java you mean Java2D and that's why you instantly liked the idea of using Slick, right?

Yeah, I mean without downloading any libraries or anything. I'm still learning. I liked the idea of Slick because my friend recommended it.

The framework used is but a hammer anyway, its in the actual creation of a game where the real fun is.

As an exercise I tend to make juniors I'm training in Java development to create a command prompt hangman, polished as far as that is possible (neat textual output, using an actual word dictionary file, creating a neatly packaged application which can be executed with a single click, etc.). Its amazing to see their faces light up when people in the company start to seriously play it and provide positive feedback and even enhancement requests.

Yeah I know. I've been coding in pure Java for ages though. My friend's been bugging me to use a library and i really should be using one by now.

It's awesome to hear new people getting into programming and enjoying it! Smiley

This looks pretty interesting. I can see the game being complex and fast paced, I'd enjoy that!

Keep it up, man!
7  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: SF Citybuilder- Buildings/Concept Art on: 2013-05-24 10:06:27
Holy crap. This has been said a lot in this thread but - I am loving that art, that's amazing.

The planets kind of remind me of the planets system from Endless Space, you played that?

Keep up this incredible work, man. Well done.

Been following the progress of this game and I'm enjoying it. Keep it up!

It looks like you could do with polishing up a few things of the game. Don't worry, I make things and then just leave them too Tongue. But it might be a good idea to sit down for a day and clean up everything like the player walking animation, that tree stump and maybe make your own art? (I'm not sure, but I don't think that's yours) I could be wrong though.

Good work anyway Smiley

I haven't even looked at libgdx yet. I'm sure I'll get a chance to look more into it. Thanks for the opinions anyway.

I've been reading up on a few. So far I've just been coding in naked Java Cheesy.

Slick2D sounds like a good option but I'm open to anything!
11  Games Center / Featured Games / Re: Daedalus on: 2013-05-23 17:55:37
Reading up on the development of this game was so motivating! I want to code now..
Really good job on this, keep up the good work!
12  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Hey everyone! on: 2013-05-23 17:52:20
I've been on the forums for a while now reading up on various topics. Certainly the most useful forum I've ever come across and it looks like it's a close/nice community. So I'm just saying hi as my first post!

Hey! Cheesy
