Post news RSS New Game Comming Soon! Read & Vote, Please!

I know it's been a while since my last blog post, I'm still in Europe and I can't work on my game... Oh, I know that the title sounds weird, because of my current game, Ooni, which is still in developing. I won't abandon Ooni. No. I just want to make another Game Creation Marathon!

I know it's been a while since my last blog post, I'm still in Europe and I can't work on my game...

Oh, I know that the title sounds weird, because of my current game, Ooni, which is still in developing.
I won't abandon Ooni. No.
I just want to make another Game Creation Marathon!

Being away from work gave me tons of new fresh ideas that I can't wait to work on, but since I'm still working on Ooni, I think that a marathon is the best option...

Okay, okay. What is a Game Creation Marathon?
Well, this is not my first time doing a marathon, so I can simply thell that it consists in creating a game that reaches at least the alpha stage in less than a certain time. I usually choose 24 hours as my goal, but my desicion may change.
I will be streaming live while making the game, so everyone will be able to see exactly what I do when the day comes.

On my previous marathons we got a maximum of like 4 watchers at a time, and 200 watchs in total. Ouch.
I would be really cool if we get some attention this time. After all, we'll be doing charity!
We will be making the game on a live stream, and when the game gets done, we will put it in a website and it will be Free to Play!

Also, Christmas is comming soon, what if we make something like The Speed Gamers?
A few years ago, The Speed Gamers decided to catch all the 493 Pokémons (now they're 649) in less than 72 hours. They had a Donation button where people was able to donate money to them. Well, not literally them. When the marathon ended, they donated all the money to an orphanatory so those kids could have a Merry Christmas! Oh yeah! They donated $5,000,000 if I remember.

We will put two donation buttons: one for the developers and one for the charity. Basically, you decide.
I, the developer, need some money to get the program and the license I need in order to finish Ooni. That's all I need...

Well, anyways, since this marathon is really important for me, this time I'll let you choose which kind of game you want me to develop! (Woo!) So I don't create anything in vain.
I won't tell you the name of the game or what is all about yet. Just a brief description.

So, what do we have as Option 1???

Option 1:
A battle platformer inspired in Super Smash Bros., Super Crate Box's massive enemies and the art of Superbrothers Sword & Sworcery.
You'll be able to play with lots of different characters with different abilities. And by lots of characters, I mean LOTS OF CHARACTERS! Literally... In fact, you may be able to recognize most of them ;)
People will be allowed to design their own characters and they may be added to the game and all could play with them!
It will be able to be played by up to 2 players! The Alpha 1.0 will feature the survival mode, and I would add another interesting feature by the time (HINT: Super Smash Bros's Classic Mode ;D). Also, level editor.

...And what's with Option 2?

Option 2:
A basic First Person Shooter, with fancy graphics (HINT: Doodle!).
Players will be able to change the texture pack. And maybe people will be able to make their own levels as an upcoming update.

Are you ready? You sure?
Well, if you're ready, please vote above.
And please, choose wisely.

The marathon's results will be up around December and the marathon, as well, will be in December.
I'll tell you the date when everything gets organized. Please follow me on IndieDB if you want to stay tuned.

Thanks for reading and supporting my project. I will work on Ooni again as soon as I get back to my country.
