libGDX is a Java game development framework that provides a unified API that works across all supported platforms.

The framework provides an environment for rapid prototyping and fast iterations. Instead of deploying to Android/iOS/Javascript after each code change, you can run and debug your game on the desktop, natively. Desktop JVM features like code hotswapping reduce your iteration times considerably.

Libgdx tries not be the "end all, be all" solution. It does not force a specific design on you.

Steam Next Fest Demo

It's coming! A publicly playable demo, as part of the Steam Next Fest, and even tho the game still has a long way to go I do think the core mechanics are there and a starting amount of content is there to experience (and hopefully see) the potential of the game. So few more weeks!

If this is your first time reading about the game, I do weekly devlogs over on Youtube talking and showing the various changes to the game and also the decision making that goes into game-design. Right now we are a few versions further since the last update, and that also means a lot has been done! The latest devlog talks about some cool new "mini tasks" added to the game, which really enhance the game:

This weeks changes-list

I skipped a few weeks of updating the list publicly, so the list is fairly long this time just to have a complete overview for reference - I am skipping the various (minor) bug fixes (would triple the size of the list!)

  • added: if all player-controlled characters die - end mission (Failure)
  • tweak: moved skill-set AI to triggersystem (can now handle multiple at once)
  • added: buffs and debuffs to building-placement
  • added: effects of buffs and debuffs to game code
  • added: game starts with placing HQ
  • added: nightvision lights when power is cut off
  • added: city-view cars can drive over pedestrians
  • added: city-view pedestrians can start shooting at each other (based on how violent the city has become)
  • added: countdown numbers to grenades
  • added: countdown to C4
  • added: if player enters tiny room with 1 door, AI should not follow (unless player inFight mode)
  • added: Enemy groups running in when "interacting" with items
  • added: health-bars above character when restoring HP/resting
  • added: showing mission-progress in HUD
  • added: Music loop when turning on music (record player)
  • added: tiny effects to the city-view (construction debris, smoke, etc)
  • added: setting to "Show AI marker"
  • added: draw generic "scorched" debris things from metal+wood that can be used when ANY furniture explodes
  • added: wall-mounted explosive items
  • added: mission to "destroy building"
  • added: mission-countdown (get to exit before it's done
  • added: first "task" dialog (explosive placement)
  • added: "push button" task (opens electronic doors)
  • added: "data transfer" task
  • added: "Safe cracking" task
  • added: movement-bomb gadgets
  • added: "Detonator" task
  • added: when regrouped, and player holds.. move out from the group (if no danger)
  • tweak: improved various settings/interface navigational thingies
  • tweak: improved and changed the way interaction triggers work
  • tweak: added bounce to activated cars
  • tweak: city-overview interface improvements
  • fixed: city-view now properly sorts stuff on screen
  • tweak: AI more active moving into rooms when opening a door
  • tweak: swapped "options" and "settings" naming
  • tweak: small changes to enhance visiblity of player sprites
  • tweak: replaced static menu-background with city-view

regcity screenshot08

One of the tasks/mini-games in the game: disable these motion-activated bombs or become fragmeat!

regcity screenshot09

Another task, fairly simple, but they break up the gameplay a bit and provide a nice emerging addition to the game.

I just created a game called Chomp! using LibGdx. I found it a great library and I liked that it was a programmers platform since I am a Java programmer.

My game is now on the Google Play Store. It is about a crocodile that catches food. You control the crocodile with the accelerator.

Wally the Crocodile catches food from all directions and angles.

Three ways to play.

Why the developer is TOME studios and the license is Commercial?
It's being developed by the libgdx guys and the license should be Apache2.
