  1. Made some good progress yesterday putting in a win and lose state, and I made a cheesy start screen main menu type of thing. It too has camera shake. I just have to do audio now and I have a few extra touches that I want to put in, but I wonder if I'll have time for that.
  2. [Release] Nineties Cockpit Freakout

    Looking rad! Already has a great sense of being in a tiny fighter craft, and the diagonal lines in the window and panel really draw the attention to the center. Can't wait to see it in action in space.
  3. Thanks! I'm using Unity yeah. The motion is a combination of spawning empty gameobjects with trail renderers and 2d cloud sprites at some distance from the player and moving them forwards at a high speed. Once they pass the player's field of view they are destroyed and get spawned again in front. So the cockpit isn't actually moving.
  4. Spent some time with the game again today, and after putting in some QTE keyboard prompts on the various buttons and panels yesterday, I wrestled with getting them to recognize the correct key input and translate that into your plane either freaking out more or less. I've got it working pretty okay now, it picks a keyboard key at random to display, and if you press the correct key before the time runs out your plane stabilizes a little bit. And conversely if you press the wrong key it starts shaking more and more and eventually spins out of control. Tomorrow I want to look into making the situation escalate when you miss a keypress as well, I suspect that will be tricky.
  5. [Release] The Legend of Big Bird's Bones

    Spot-on Chris Face.
  6. Wow it looks like it's actual papercraft, very cool!
  7. [DevLog] Rich Uncle VS Cool Uncle

    Rad, the movement looks incredibly smooth, and what an idea to use billboards in a 3D environment
  8. [Release] Nineties Cockpit Freakout

    Looks good! I didn't know about Enviro-bear but that looks super fun, looking forward to your take on it. So it's cool with you if I make my interpretation as well? Then I think I will!
  9. [Release] Nineties Cockpit Freakout

    Oh snap I had the exact same game idea from this ep title as you ha. Mine lives more in a Top Gun universe, but the idea of manually frantically flipping controls seemed like fun to me too. Good luck!
  10. This sounds rad! I think I'll participate - I'm forcing myself to make more smaller itch.io-primed games and not wallow in massive projects that only exist on my harddrive or are meant for my freelance clients. And man yeah Idle Titles are a goldmine for ideas.
  11. Deus Ex Universe

    Very happy to have more Deus Ex. I was just thinking the other day that I really wanted another good stealth action game again after finishing MGS Ground Zeroes, though it looks from the trailer like they went bonkers on offensive augmentations with which to fuck dudes up with. A little more Raiden than Snake, say. But I must say I like Jensen because he is a character totally in the same vein as JC Denton, who was a ridiculous brooding leather-clad man in retrospect too, but back then that was fine and cool and God help me I dig that Matrix-y stuff. I suppose they will retcon one of the multiple endings, as they did from DX1 to DX2, where Paul Denton was alive and well as opposed to murdered by me.
  12. I hope that last push really gets them there, but yeah more and more Kickstarters are tanking it seems, from Human Resources to The Black Glove.
  13. Alien Isolation - The nightmare of Milky Joe

    That's where I got stuck too, by far the longest Alien encounter I've had. Getting to the office is alright but specifically locating his body in the next hallway is a pain. It's not the best encounter.
  14. Obra Dinn

    It looks so darn good, and even that seems like nothing once you get the I also really like the concept of the game, trying to find out how everybody died. And the manifest is HUGE. There were like 40 people on that boat.
  15. Alien Isolation - The nightmare of Milky Joe

    Yes I think so, and Easy also extends the range (or 'umbilical cord' as the devs call it) between you and the Alien. This means it will stomp around in a wider area around you, making your sneaking life a little easier. I think it also reduces the time it roams around before crawling back up a vent.
  16. THE EVIL WITHIN: Slurms MacKenzie

    Well, whichever way you like your FOV or black bars, someone made a mod (well, a script command) that opens it up to customization:
  17. Alien Isolation - The nightmare of Milky Joe

    It didn't bother me that much in this game, maybe it's some form of relief from long stretches of tension. It's almost Flappy Bird-esque, you go "aw shit! woofff, good one, let's try again." One recommendation: play on easy. You're in for a long haul. (you can change it in the options menu) That said, finished it tonight! It's really quite long (took me 18 hours) and could have done with some mid-section trimming (I don't know how many times I had to restore power to something), but after
  18. You can actually play Crimes and Punishments in first-person, there's a button for that.
  19. Alien Isolation - The nightmare of Milky Joe

    I'm not sure how far in I am right now but I'm still having a blast. The whole first bit up until basically when you get your first taste of the Alien drags on and on, but after that it has pretty good pacing with interesting environments to explore.
  20. Alien Isolation - The nightmare of Milky Joe

    I'm a good few hours in now and I'm starting to loosen up and get used to dying. Listening is key, when I hear him bonk around in the vents I can relax a little bit. Before that I spent about two hours getting some keycard from some doctor because it was fucking terrifying and it was like every turn I made the Alien could come stomping down the hall again. I think I spent 15 minutes sitting in a vent while I made a sandwich. Having the motion tracker glitch up in vents is a good choice I think, forces you to peek and slither around like a crazy person. I just have a small heart attack every time Ripley slams a locker door shut when she jumps out. I had my best Alien moment so far in that time I described above where I just went back and forth down the same hallway for hours, until the Alien caught wind of me and I jumped into one of those shutter vents and crawled halfway. Then I thought "wait, but what if the Alien walked around the corridor and is waiting at the other end?" and right then the vent exit opened in front of me, I heard a hiss, and I just closed my eyes and freaked out. I don't think I've ever done that in a horror game (the past five years). The most frustrating was probably The game runs really well for me too on max settings. After Shadow of Mordor I had kind of forgotten what a well-optimized game looked like.
  21. The Vanishing of Ethan Carter

    Me neither, I figured
  22. Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments

    I'm excited to delve deeper into this one, also because I am making a detectiving game myself. So far it seemed pretty nice, poncing about a garden in a weird disguise.
  23. The Vanishing of Ethan Carter

    They've said that they are going to implement some sort of fast-travel system in Update 3.
  24. The Vanishing of Ethan Carter

    I finished the game yesterday, and I would say that in terms of scares, Ha Lu you jumped down the elevator shaft? You survived? Wow. I looked at the shaft but figured I'd be able to summon the elevator later so I continued to the graveyard and then followed the downhill path to the entrance of the mine, and up to the right of that is a hole where you can enter. Overall I really enjoyed the game. I think that watching the commented gameplay vid before playing the game really gave me a leg up (like I knew how the floaty word mechanic worked and that I had to arrange the scene first). I also liked how despite being a fairly open environment they still guide you to the right places, and I think I progressed in the intended way (except for most of the side quests which they do a good job of informing you about once you get to the 'end'. I especially liked I did have some stuttering, but I lowered the draw distance and tweaked the smoothed framerate and other optimizations in the config ini to a satisfying degree.
