Game designer, programmer and international man of mystery :) I am currently making and/or have previously made games using Game Maker, SDL, SFML, OpenGL, OpenFL, Löve2D, Slick2D, Unity3D, NME, HTML 5, LWJGL and LibGDX. Only a small subset of these projects have every been published: they can be found below.

It's Slick actually, which is built on top of LWJGL ;) The first time either of us programmers used either as it happens: Android and Web version would be great, though I'm not entirely sure how to export to the latter.

Oh, and since you like open-source, here is our git:
All GGJ games are, after all, required to release their source ;)

edit: Linux version being validated as we speak by the way.

This is why you avoid using C# from the beginning :P
I recommend you go back in time and never learn C#: instead become comfortable with C++. Then in the past you can write the whole game in C++ and not have to worry about Microsoft -to use the technical term- "owning your ***" ;)

Sorry: shouldn't be mean since you're clearly going to a lot of trouble to port the game to Linux and Mac. It's very nice of you: many developers wouldn't bother. Thank you for your time and effort - it really does mean a lot to us poor finished-game starved Linux-users :D

The effect so far is purely aesthetic, so the game doesn't actually "know" what's in shadow.
It's not finished yet though: I'm going to add a simple tile-based binary "visibility" matrix underneath all this so I know when to draw objects and when to skip them. I'll probably end up masking the far-away tiles as well ;)

The game was originally called "Debugger" but that sounded so boring. Then I remembered my Dad's habit of swearing whenever his code refuses to compile and dropped the 'De'. I suppose using a swear-word as a title is a little... risqué. Then again outside of Australia and England it's not really used, and luckily these two countries have a sense of humour when it comes to such things. Hopefully nobody will be too offended :S

I answered gameplay, but maybe that's just what I want to think I think. I reckon a lot of people, like me, like to think that they're not wooed by visuals. But most of us will dismiss ugly games before even playing them.

On a *cough* completely *cough* unrelated note: please play my ugly-as-sin alpha demo XD You'll never find out how bad the gameplay, audio and storyline are otherwise, and that would be a shame.

Cheers - yeah: there's a lot of balance work to be done. But first I've got to add all the enemies and weapons into the game: then I can figure out which did and what health and what weapon does how much damage :-)

Pretty sure these two little "swarmer" enemies will be 1-hit-killed by most weapons though.

Thanks warsztat :) Sorry I'm so slow to reply. As for a bit of constructive feedback (now that I've finished the game), what really needs to be done is balancing. Trouble is it's hard for this kind of game, since abilities can be combined in all kinds of different ways.

For example, I ended up with Flaming Fragments, Explosion and Fire Mastery on such a high level that, when I finally unblocked Spark Rain, everything and everyone I encountered was instantly varporised!
The only thing that could really threaten me was my own missiles exploding nearby, Flaming Mantle's sparks hitting me, or those damn electric hands!

Still - I'm not saying pwning everything in sight wasn't good fun ;) I might try doing an electric build at some point...

Very cool, polished (Polished?) game XD

I wouldn't mind having a look at the source since I too am working on a top-down shooter, though nothing this sophisticated (yet). By the way, there are a few music tracks I recognize: are you sure they're all free to use?

Anyway, keep up the good work!

The idea of programming terrified me: I only had experience with the Warcraft 3 map editor, and no formal education...

Now days I'd find drag and drop far too frustrating to do anything this complex, but necessity is the mother of invention...

The poor quality and lag isn't actually caused by the game, but rather the real-time encoding of the video, which is of an emulated WindowsXP. Hopefully I'll be able to figure out the parameters for ffmpeg to allow for much better quality in the future.

The first game I ever made - it is technically Open Source, but you'd have to be somewhat masochistic to try to make any sense of it: I myself have made an oath to stay out of it, so don't report any bugs - I know there are a couple but nothing that severely breaks the game. I think...

Oh yeah - if you are crazy enough to want the source, ask and I'll pass it to you. It's a good example of what can be achieved using ONLY DRAG & DROP.
