Prototype 3.0: Check out a 3-level prototype of our latest progress!

Posted by swiftseraph on Mar 25th, 2011

Ah.. Spring. Love is in the air, flowers are blooming, pollen is killing people’s will to live.
It is such a magical time.

We have a new prototype ready to meet you. It’s loved you before it was even born. Hopefully you and it will become something special, something real. Not some Hollywood “oh you killed my husband but lets get back together anyways” type stuff. REAL love.

This one is the real thing. Yes, levels are still short, but it’s about the gameplay! Pulse works, lights turn off, you can double-jump, you actually RESPAWN when you FALL, and a bunch of other ‘tings.

Check it out here (it's a web-build):
Prototype 3.0

Controls: WASD to move, Mouse to look, Space to Jump, Space again to Double-jump.
Goal: Get to the elevator at the end of the level.

Feedback is welcome and appreciated for this build.

What’s Next

Next, we’re gonna be revising the game visually. We need to define how the game looks, and this starts with dynamic set pieces (it sort of gets old using the same blocks over and over). This also means Fara will be making her debut soon as well.

Gameplay-wise, we will be adding such features as wall-running, wall-jumping and sliding. The most important near-future addition, however, will be obstacles. If you think of that show “Wipeout”, you’ll have a good idea of the kind of things we will have in the game. Players need a challenge, right? I haven’t yet fully documented how Flux will make his appearance, but I know you’ll be throwing him about and piloting him to activate switches and such.

Until next time!

Not half bad, simple but fun while leaving plenty of room for expantion. I've been developing in Unity for about a year now and am pretty well versed in most aspects of game design. When it comes to developing games a sad fact, that most developers can attest to, is that most indie games fail in the first few months because of over ambitious goals. This is the perfect example of a project started the right way. Very interested to see how this project turns out. Keep up the good work.

Why'd you change from 3rd-person puzzler to 1st-person platformer?

The controls feel a bit "slippery" for a platformer.

Love the jump-pads!
