Hey all,

Here is my last video game. I started it a couple a weeks ago, and it's still under heavy development.
In a few words, your goal is to survive in a very hostile (and unpredictable) environment.
You'll have to build your own fortress, craft or buy your own weapons, traps, and of course cooperate!
Build & Defend is a cooperative multi-player game. You can play on the internet or/and with several players on the same computer.

Hey! Here are some pictures of the game.






EDIT:

Videos of the game:

You can play the alpha 2 version on http://shlum.wtfcontent.com.
The game is fully playable

Thanks for your comments.
I'll post a video before the end of the week (and some other pictures of course).

I will make public a test version with only movements and constructions (no monsters, no weapons, no traps and not "bad events") to stress-test the network engine. I'll keep you in touch.

Bye

Will gladly test later! I scanned through every word in your post 3 times in a desperate attempt to find a download link... ._.

It's multiplayer isn't it? I hope there's single mode too even it's short.

It works for me!!! T__T You can't see it?

Yes, and +1.

The game sprites remind me of Cave Story. Though that game was obviously awesome because of its story (and I assume this is multiplayer), I don't see a problem with having just as awesome sprites as that game. =D

Yes, there is a simple player mode.
Right now, there is not differences between the single-player and multi-player mode (excepted for the redistribution of the drops).
Therefore, the single-player mode is a bit harder (building takes time -- and it is only safe to build during days).

Right now, I am thinking to four possibilities:
1. Let the single player mode as it is (a bit harder)
2. Increase the building/crafting speed of the single-player mode.
3. Add NPCs that will build and fight build with you.

Ps: I am a big fan of Cave Story, and it may has inspired me a little.

AI is difficult do to well, and no 2 is difficult to balance, which is especially important if there is any kind of persistent level or so between games. Somewhere between 2 and 1 would be the best (if that makes any sense). Or you can just reduce the rewards for winning an AI game.

This looks like a fun game to play! I can't wait until you have a playable demo. Also, for some reason, the hostiles remind me of the Joker...

2. Increase the building/crafting speed of the single-player mode.

I think this is the one. Being on the same team as the silly AI's, is never fun. They tend to derp in high-complexity games.
Have you ever played against the bots in League of Legends? They're really bad, and having those on your team against real players is an abomination.

In true 4chan spirit, although not meant as that. Please don't take offence.
"Demo or GTF..." Nay, I won't even do that  Cheesy
"Newf*gs don't know how to tri.. demo"

There's so many memes that could be applied here!

Don't worry, I am working 100.01% on the game.
Everything is almost in place for the first demo (this weekend).
Mean while, I would like to know your opinion one something:

Characters (and monster, object, etc.) can go behind constructions (walls, inside houses, etc.). However, they should still be visible for the players. I am looking for the good way to display them (see attached picture).


(you can enlarge the picture)

The current version (the blue ghost one)  makes the game a little weird since it is kind of "broking" the perspective.
The new version (red contour), is less bothering.
What do you think?

"Demo or it didn't happen!"
More powerful than "pics or didn't happen!" -- this seems to be a good new stuff for vaporwares Smiley

This look REALLY nice :-).

Are you using some kind of framework? Or is this plain Java and home made engine?

Looking forward to the weekend then :-D.
