I am young indie game developer with lots of ideas from Slovakia and also the leader of Simplicity Game Development Studio. Feel free to contact me if you have some questions!
Thanks for your support! :)
You are right, we want players to be creative and find their own ways of solving various situations.
Thanks man ;)
I really appreciate your support!
I checked out the picture of that autopilot and u are right :D It even has that ring around it.
Hi! There is definitely going to be some sort of sandbox mode where you will be able to build vehicles, create structures from various parts and blow them away ...etc. but it is not going to be a "real" level editor.
However I might add it in the future if there are enough people who will support the game ;)
We are happy to hear that :)
Sort of ;) It can help you but it can also complicate things. Check out the new artile. There are some GIFs.
Hi and thanks :)
When I say: "This game is inspired by portal" a lot of people think that everything what I am trying to do with this game is to copy it. But the only thing that I am trying to do is to get some of the ideas that worked in Portal and transform them in my own way.
People will always compare games to other famous titles. This game was even compared to antichamber and I was told that it is a total Antichamber rip-off because I posted a screen with a green cube in it :D . I do not get it but in these situations people dont see other 90 % of the totally original game mechanics. They only see that one "cube". This game is still in the middle of its development so I understand that it is hard for other people to imagine what I am actually trying to do with it. But I can assure you that there will be no portals, no robotic potatoes and cubes with hearts painted on them ;)
Thanks for your comment! :)
I will try to make graphic settings as customizable as possible but I am not sure if you will be able to run it. There will be a free demo in the future so you will be able to see if you can run it.
You need to wait until I finish it, release it and then you will be possibly able to buy it on Desura
I still need to add some more design elements because levels feel pretty empty. I will have to think it through and try out some possibilities but it should be manageable.
Hi and thanks!
I will make sure to do that :)
Hi and thanks!
It would be pretty difficult to do something like that without the negative impact on game performance. Whole screen would have to be recorded or all the data about the movement of the objects would have to be stored and sometimes there are a lot of objects so I am not sure if the game could handle it. There will be possibly no checkpoints as the levels are going to be pretty small and simple. They would be pointless. But that doesnt mean that it is a bad idea ;) I will think about it and maybe I will figure something out.
There is going to be something like a demo in maybe..2 months? So I will be happy if you will play it and send your suggestions/opinions my way :)
I still want to implement some additional game mechanics and I need to remake and simplify some things but the game is slowly shaping up. :)
Game is still in development
Game is still in its early stages. I still work on game mechanics and there are no playable levels so far. However I plan to release something like a free beta version/demo of this game so people can take a look at it and play it. I am not sure when it will be available. Possibly something about 2 months from now.
I am using Unity Pro. I bought the license last year when I was working on our older project "Cubic Climber".
All the shaders are from basic unity assets. Bumped Specular, Self-Illumination etc. The final visual is combination of shaders and Camera Image effects.
As a modelling tool I use Blender but sometimes I just create objects directly in Unity and combine the meshes using "Combine Children" script
that also comes in basic Unity assets.
Hi and thanks!
I am not totally sure what you mean by your first question. When I create these various things I usually just get and idea, I think about how it could be useful in different puzzles and then (If it is good) I just make it.
Wiring is not generated. It is manually placed. It's not the most efficient way but it is good when I need to do something unusual that could be hardly scripted.
Nope. I have some ideas though.
Some levels are going to be pretty simple and they could be made in 15-20 minutes but I also want to create more interesting and complex levels and they could take even 2 hours to create.
It is going to be pretty easy. Just placing the objects and connecting some of them from time to time. The hardest part about this is to make each level interesting and fun and that is the most time consuming part.
Yeah. It is too transparent. I'll make sure to fix it ;)
Force field ;)
Thanks ;) I will check it out!
It is still in development
Thanks! I appreciate your support! :)
I know about the "HUD problem" but I am considering whether to do something about it as it is still pretty visible when you play on full-screen and I kinda like the idea that when you are under water ..you have to be fast and blurred HUD is not really going to help you :D
You can see electricity effect on this screenshot.
I just somehow forgot to show it in the video.
It is hard to tell as the game is still in its early stages but I think it is going to be less than $15 ;)
Thanks :) I will try to do my best!
Unfortunately no. But I can assure you that it will have a normal price so people can afford it ;)
Thanks! You are right. I will make sure to reduce it ;)
It looks really good ;)
Yes I know what you mean. This game was inspired by Portal. It is a great game. :)
It's only up to you what you want to build and how you want to build it so there will be always more ways how to get through current chamber. The only limitation are the parts like wheels,thrusters etc. that can be found in that level. This is also the reason why you won't be able to move your vehicles and other stuff from chamber to chamber but maybe I will add option to save your vehicles in the sandbox mode... or something like that.
