It is. Indeed. About. Time.

Ahem :-D

PS - I used to hate this game and everything it represented. Consider me converted ;-)

wilbefast @ Dilogus - The Winds of War is back as a game for both Linux and Windows

Coolness :-D

But...

I'd love to be loving, especially since you're supporting my platform, but I'm a little sceptical by nature. You've got a guy who can draw bloody well and another guy who comes up with cool ideas. But this is a game and games lives or die by their programmers. Without programmers they're just pretty art and cool ideas, but not games.

Hell, the other three guys could be programmers for all I know, it's just that I've seen a ton of promising-looking project like this shrivel up and fail. Course THAT DOESN'T MEAN THIS ONE HAS TO! This is not a turkey-slap, this is a reality check.
Number one piece of advice of all time is to keep it real. Don't bite off more than you can chew. I've got plenty more clichés where these ones came from. What this means in practice is: concentrate on the few little things that will make this game truly great, and cut the rest. There are 5 of you: feature creep is your single biggest enemy.

More than that, I'd get something very basic and very ugly **playable** asap and work from there. This should keep morale up because you'll already have *something* cohesive to show for your work. And it'll be a game, not just concept art.

That said, I'm rooting for you :-) I hope it goes great! So best of luck to you all - you're gunna need it :-P


PS - to anyone thinking of jumping on me for "damaging the team's morale": if a post can damage the team's morale then this project has already failed. Period.

wilbefast @ Make something A.Typical, part 3

You and you're multi-talented... ness XD

I had no idea you could do music. I really need to learn to play an instrument before I'm too old and senile :-S

wilbefast @ Link-Dead new build 1874 released

Give the guy a break: programming's a bitch :-/ Okay, so if you're indie you're in it for love, but the thought of a little money at the end of the day is always nice.

Still, making people pay to test something is a little strange. Perhaps it should be *phrased* differently. "Getting to participate in the *exclusive* alpha" sounds better than "paying to find bugs", and that's pretty much what most mainstream multiplayer games do these days...

Cool - so it should be fairly simple to port it to Linux :D

wilbefast @ Warlock's Gauntlet

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...

wilbefast @ Warlock's Gauntlet

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!
Watching.

Good stuff :-) Out of curiosity, how did you check for memory leaks? Just system monitor/control panel ?

wilbefast @ Zombie Run

Hmmm - well, I might give re-hashes a miss for the time being: I want to work on other projects. Ones compatible with Linux and Mac :-)

I'll have a look at the other stuff when I'm set up in Italy. I may be releasing the source of these games though, if people are interested in taking them in hand...

Fixed a little glitch in the main menu - will have to wait for authentication I'm afraid :-?

wilbefast @ Zombie Run

Could you explain this mod idea a bit more clearly? One player is a zombie, the other is a human, and there should be other NPC humans to convert right?

You're really scaring me man. It's "Jeklynn" as in "The strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde".

Is the background colour final? I find it distracts the eye a little - maybe it's just me... :S

Brilliant game :-) I broke a few of the levels, but then that just made me feel really awesome and clever.

I got the secret ending too - nothing happened though: I was expecting cake :-S

wilbefast @ Nosferatu

Would this game happen to have anything to do with the Counter Strike "Vampire Slayers" mod? Because that mod was seriously cool - I'm certain it was the inspiration for Left 4 Dead.

Remember that a picture is worth a thousand words, and a video is a good 24 pictures per second minimum. Nudge nudge :-P

Thanks for supporting Linux :-) I'm tracking.
