This is a public release of my latest project. I am hoping people will download it and give me some feedback.

Open Source Fleh Boy is a 2d game with a simple concept, you finish a stage by reaching goal. You have a bunch enemies, a time limit and loads of hindrance trying to stop you from reaching there.

Flesh Boy is heavily inspired by Super Meat Boy, N+ and NReality.

Here is an ingame image:



You are that red guy doing a wall slide.

In this release, I wont be showing any features. Instead, I am releasing a test map where you can check and feel the controller.

I am mostly looking for controller feedback, but any type of feedback is appreciated:
- Do you like the controller? Why?
- Would you want to play a game with a controller like this?
- Bugs?
- Other thoughts?

Download:

Usage:
Extract the content from the rar, launch the executable file.

You need java 7 to run this.

Is there a reason it is "Windows only"?

I am also interested in this.  Java is normally multi-platform, so what features caused this to be Windows only?

Well, there are directory problems, and sometimes some things can be platform-independent like look and feel.

Neither of those things should cause it to be platform dependent.

For Windows, you don't need to do this: "C:\\Users\\", you can do this: "C:/Users/" and it will work for all operating systems.

And if you don't want to use java's look and feel, simple use the system's look and feel

EDIT: I know Mac and Linux don't use drive letters. I was talking about the "\\" vs "/"

For Windows, you don't need to do this: "C:\\Users\\", you can do this: "C:/Users/" and it will work for all operating systems.

Well no, it'll still only work on Windows.  Getting at a user's home directory is a bit involved

For some reason I´m not aware of myself: No. Smiley I´m apparently using Java SE 6.

Yeah, I know that, my post was meant to talk about the "\\" and "/"
