this looks great! tracking.

I wonder, how have you done the enemy's trail effect?

Wizardum @ Lunar Development Kit

yes, lack of planning and I should have followed a design pattern like MVC or MVP.

I didn't even know what patterns where back then.

And I'm still considering which of those two patterns to use.

I only remember posting a screenshot showing the Desura site.
Where did I do that? can you tell me please?

Wizardum @ Lunar Development Kit

well that's because I'm developing a new one from scratch, a lot better in every way and free.

I'm happy with what I've learned with LDK but it was a pain to add new features or change the interface.

I'm surprised with the success that LDK had in a so short time, but I want to give you guys something a lot better than that and I want to give it for free.

So you think you can wait a little bit longer?

We are currently a team of two programmers and one helper designer and I don't want to divulgue any details on our project, but it is a big one and I'm really sure people will like it!

As soon as we got one of the editors somewhat done we will present the project publicly.

Wizardum @ Hero-Arena

the models look so amazing, why haven't I heard of this before?
I'm definitely tracking this, it looks pretty awesome!

I love this graphic style, I suppose a cel-shading effect is in the plans? it would definitely boost this up! At least I think so.

Keep up with the awesome work guys, I'm watching you ;)

Wizardum @ Small update for the month of April

I'm really glad I found this!
Pretty much everything resembles the good old crash bandicoot, except for the graphics, it looks so much better this way.

Indeed an innovative idea.

I was going to rant about copyright stuff but then I noticed this was a mod xD
Nevertheless, a new crash bandicoot should be made with the current technology in my opinion.

Anyway, this looks awesome, I just think the game could be more fast-paced. Right now it seems like you're playing in slow-motion. Maybe it's the animations' speed or something, but even the jump looks very slow.

Regardless, congratz for a job well done!

I'm not the one responsible for the character editor, so I don't know it's development status.
I'll ask James to post an update of the Character Editor

Wizardum @ REFUSION

I've been wondering about the limits of mr. SamOne regarding players online and the world size.

I wanted to know how many players online can your engine support without any significant lag. I'm not sure how this multiplayer thing works so I'm curious.

And I'm also curious about how huge would a regular world map be.
I know one of Bethesda Softworks first games had the biggest world of all games, with around 50km I believe.
What are the limits for this engine?

I have quite a good idea of how this game would look immersive and reaslistic, and could even compare it to the world of Avatar, but it will depend on your answers.

Thanks for reading.

Wizardum @ Upcoming Video and Q&A

I'm actually wondering if a game like this can withstand a great number of players online in a huge map.

By great number of players I mean over 64 players online. I would like to know the limit of players that the engine can withstand with no significant lag.

And by huge map I mean really huge.
I've heard one of Bethesda Softworks first games had the hugest map, with around 50km. I was curious about how big a regular map in Refusion would be.

I got a general idea of how this game would look really immersive and realistic. I could it even compare it to the world of Avatar, but it depends on your aswers.

Thanks for reading.

it's definitely a cool feature!

Slow motion on the last mortal strike makes everything much more immersive!

Good job! Keep it up! ;)

Wizardum @ New thoughts

yah, I'd definitely go for UDK. It has all the tools you need! and suports a lot of platforms.

If you have a team, or at least can do a bit of everything, you're good to go! ;)

Wizardum @ Cell.Protect

Simple game, pretty cool effects actually.

The gameplay is a bit odd, I believe it's because the collision radius of the cell is a bit too high, maybe lower it, the player can enter it a bit, but eventually gives it more freedom to go around.

I would also suggest to throw up some different colors, there is one type of enemy right now, so add up more enemies and distinguish them with different colors, and maybe when they hit the cell, the cell becomes the color of the enemy.

The things that the enemies drop should have some effect when they disappear (when you don't get them in time), like a little particle explosion or just a fade away effect.

Also I discovered a bug. After you play the first time, when you go play it again (without quiting the game and executing it again) no enemies appear anymore.

Well after saying bad things, I must say I really like the main menu, the blurriness, the stuff moving around, a very nice touch you put there.

This is a game that needs some improvement, and I stated here what I believed to be the things that could be improved.
But the game is yours and of course you decide what to do.

I hope I didn't offend you in any way.

The best of luck to you,
Mário

Wizardum @ Warp Speed

Promising indeed!
It was a bit odd to play though, well it's not like something we are used to so.

But you have a good concept here!

I just hope you guys keep up the good work, like you have been so far, and looking forward to see this final released.

Btw is it commercial or freeware?

Wizardum @ Sanctum

This game is just amazing!

Made me remember when I played tower defense games on wc3.

But this is a whole new experience!
Just for the small action trailer I can say it features really good environment, creature design originality, the sci-fi theme looks actually pretty awesome, the towers build themselves impressively!
What more can I say?

I will say that I'm going to track this game, to check on future updates, and I'm grabbing the demo.

But wait, where's the demo?

this is a quite beautiful cave!

You guys are doing a great job here, and if I heard right, this is all placeholders.
If that is so, I can't imagine how it will look like when everything is done!

Congratz and keep going!

Wizardum @ I play indie games mainly on

if you (just an example) worked with the XNA framework to make your games, you could make indies for the Xbox360, so there you go.

Still, indies seem more popular on pc and I had only played a few on pc.

Wizardum @ XaggerStudios

We are currently developing the game. I'm coding all the base engine of the game, so it will take a bit before we get something to show.
But it will come.

For now you just need to know it's a 2D top-down space shooter with, I hope, a new twist: Color. I'm not going to say anything else =)

Cheers
