I've been designing and constructing games for 8 years now and have experience in a modelling, animating, texturing, programming, and level design. I'm very eager to join a team and work on larger projects. I use Unity, and Blender. I prefer coding in C# but am experienced in many languages.

Wait, my fault. Ignore what I previously said about it not working. Looks awesome :)

It's actually kind of sad. I really think that Minecraft needs a serious update and overhaul. The gameplay leaves a lot to be desired. Once you've built a few good things and gone to the ender there's no point to keep playing.

I was going to make a game just like this, but I never got round to it. I'm pleased to see you're making this, and much better than I would have done!

Visually very impressive, reminds me of limbo but with a really nice use of colour and depth.

Hey thunderising. Unfortunately my university course prevents me from working on any game projects a lot of the time so there may not be much to look at until summer. :( I am however considering whether this project specifically is right for me alone to develop. I want to build a team and I'm looking for people at my university to help. I'll get back to it when I'm more prepared and available.

I'm really glad you enjoyed Tumball, thanks alot for buying it! :) I'm sorry to hear you had that error though... What operating system are you using?

I'm unable to reproduce the error... so I think I'm going to have to talk to the Desura team and see if they know anything.

Ahah, Awkward question.

My current thinking is that there will be a rather limited free beta (or even alpha) release where users are encouraged to give feedback. The final release will not be free... I'm very poor and desperately have to make a living!

You're worried that it won't look like the original design? Or you're worried that I won't finish the game? I can promise you neither will happen. The final game may have a little less foliage than the title screen shot, but I don't think that's much of a worry, and I do intend to finish this. I've always wanted to make a simple RPG style game and I think this has potential :)

Well, I'm thinking about crafting... but it's a lot of effort for something that may not be so useful in the gameplay I intended at this time. The stick shown here will be the first weapon you will be able to use, it will be extremely weak though...

I'm struggling on Character design... I'm torn between the very simple style of my first prototype or something more realistic: Actual hands to manulate something, a nicer head shape, feet etc... Any thoughts guys?

Oh. That's not good. Is it a Desura error or something else? If it's a Desura Error you may need to contact Desura themselves. If it's a general error or looks different send it to me and I'll get on it right away.

Aha, that's actually pretty cool! I'm working on making the character concepts closer to the first one as he was so loved. But I want the new character to have hands and a stronger build otherwise it doesn't make sense when he wields heavy swords.

It's not usually, I just live on the otherside of the world to Desura so I release an update and it can take up to 24 hours longer than usual to get verified.

Really? That's interesting, I've come to feel that he's a bit too bland... Ok well I get the feeling a lot of people do like him. I'll just try to vamp up the current model then :)

I like the camera how it is too.... but I will add an option to rotate it manually I think... I'm also planning adding WASD control :) So don't worry.

I get the attack movement problem. It is basically the same code, and I think I've over done it a bit. Notice he lunges less if you hold the mouse closer to the player though...

As with the player model. Some people have mentioned he looks silly or plain and others have stated that he should not change and is simple and pleasing as he is. Personally, I love him. But I am aware that there is potential to improve him. I am planning going back and redesigning him at some point to see if I can come up with something more please... but I may not, and he may never change... Personally I feel that it's less important that actually pinning down some decent game play. The character can be edited later...

Thanks for the comment! :)
