<a href=";hl=en_US&amp;start=" target="_blank">;hl=en_US&amp;start=</a>

Here is a prototype of my game, "The Golden Age."  You play as three different pirates, trying to stay alive.  Most of the graphics are place holders at this point, as I wanted to focus on game mechanics before anything else.  There's a lot more I want to implement, but here's what I have done so far:

The layout of the game world is built, which is tile based and for this game, pretty big.  It's actually the same world as Dodger Dog, which takes place on Fig Island, which is modeled off Port St Joe/Cape San Blas Florida and the surrounding areas.  The water tiles animate to make the water appear like it's flowing.  The players also animate, but it's kind of hard to see.  The world has 7 towns, each with a "king" that is currently represented as a teepee (later the player will be able to go into the teepee and talk to the king).  Each teepee has a corresponding fire.  I tried to implement my own particle effect generator but half way failed so I just used a few animated sprites for that instead for now.

Players can jump and swim and collide with trees and other game objects.

Players can collect weapons and switch between them and use them to attack, and there is a little inventory system going.

There are two missions player can play and complete, one of which involves collected weapons.  

There is a weather system, which is basically a day and night cycle, as well as rain/storm cycle with lightening.  For lightening, I used    Thanks @Cero and @Phased for making that, it looks pretty dang good.  

The player/party movement looks pretty good too!  It's very smooth.  Thanks @SkyAphid with the help on that.

There's a makeshift GUI.  It doesn't display anything really but at least its there.

PlayStation, XBox, and Logitech controllers work, as well as keyboard and mouse controls.  (The controllers don't actually do anything yet except print out "A button hit" and stuff, but they're mapped and ready to go.

Player can use a torch which currently uses the same animation as the regular fire.

Things I still need to do/work on:
Make all my images be on the same sprite sheet.
Do art for most of the game.
Implement more weapons and missions.
Make collision detection better.
Make cut scenes for various parts of the game.
Figure out how to dump this to various OSs.  Right now I can't figure out how to get Android to work.
Implement controls for touch screen.
See you guys in 4 years.  lol.

It seems to me that @Mykayla is a marketer. Anybody saw his posts? Seems like all of them are pointing to his websites. A little marketing is fine, please use the signature field for that. However, hijacking other threads is not.

If those games are yours, why not post under projects boards, either showcase or wip?

Mykayla is a marketer
I would go one step further and say he's a bot. He posted a similar reply in three other threads each with a different website.

I have been making really good progress on this project.  I now have makeshift designs and animations for the players and enemies.  As of now, there are 7 towns, and each town has an enemy spawner.  The enemies are spawned until they hit a max amount allowed, and their AI makes them follow the player and attack you.  If you have a sword, you can kill them.  When one enemy dies, another spawns.

There is now a working inventory system where you can actually select the weapon you want.  You can also switch to the map (map is still very much a WIP, but at least its there and functioning).

All controllers are implemented and actually do stuff to affect game play rather than System.out.println("A Button Pressed");

The last few days I've been working on audio, mostly things like fade in ocean sounds if player comes within bounds of the ocean.  Same with fire. 

I also made a cutscene intro in anticipation for the demo I'm going to make, which I hope to have made within the next month, where at least game play will work.  Graphics might be a bit iffy, as I am no artist.

I just need to figure out how to properly package everything together.

I'll try to put up a video demo this weekend.
