  1. [Release] Live from the Past

    UPDATE The game has been released! You can find it here: https://nkornek.itch.io/live-from-the-past __________________________________________________________ Since it's the final Wizard Jam, I decided to finally make a game that I designed for one of the first Wizard Jams but never actually had time to make: Live from the Past! The idea is this: 2 players go head to head in a time-travelling western duel. When a player is shot, they quickly escape through a time portal back to the start of the duel, however their past ripples through time, creating an echo of their previous movements that replays all of their actions. To score points, players must create paradoxes by killing their opponent's echoes. The longer the game lasts, the more echoes will build up and the more intense things will get. I dug up my old sprite sheets of all of the Idle Thumbs hosts over the years (that was just about all I had time to do last time around) and made some tweaks to how they work as well as made new sprites for rolls and to allow full dual-stick aiming (also to update Danielle's haircut) Got a bit of a headstart on some programming so now most of the basic player controls are in. I also decided to play around with some of Unity's new 2D lighting tools Can't wait to start working on the crazy time replay stuff and making environment art. It's going to be an interesting challenge but I think it'll be a very fun local multiplayer game when it's all done!

  4. [Release] Live from the Past

    Sadly I had some unexpected things come up this weekend and I won't have time to finish the game today. It's getting very close though and really just needs some additional polish and also sound effects so I think I'll be able to finish in the next few days. I probably got a little carried away adding little details but they were fun to put in so that's all that counts. Here's the (near?) final game environment that you'll be dueling in! Probably my favourite new thing that I added was this little bridge between the two buildings that can be cut by bullets! But wait, what's this? A NEW CHALLENGER APPROACHES??? Hidden in the game is a secret code that can be used to unlock this glutton as a playable character!

    Took some time tonight to art-up the character select screen and add a little practice area. I think I may still clean up a few things but overall I'm really pleased with how this came out. Next step will be to build out the game environment even more!

    That skull looks like it should be giving me the finger guns

    I like that everyone who enters must face the eyes of Luigi
  8. [Release] Live from the Past

    Threw in a basic character select screen. I had some fun choosing the different fonts and names for each character.
  9. [Release] Live from the Past

    Took a night off of programming and whipped up a quick logo
  10. [Release] Live from the Past

    Update! The core game loop is now working! Forgive the bad character movement, it's very hard to control two character at once for the purposes of recording a gif. I'll try to get someone to help me record a good one that really shows it off. This actually motivated me to finally implement character assignment so now all 6 characters are playable! Now on to LOTS AND LOTS of polish.
  11. [Release] Alpha Magus

    Looking great so far! I'm loving that intro, very stylish!
  12. [Release] Live from the Past

    End of weekend update! So much stuff has been added. I've largely been working on building up the environment and now have the full central saloon built out. I'm still going to add a few props in places and also want to add some smaller buildings along the sides. There are also now doors that open automatically when players walk up to them but can also be shot open, as well as windows that will shatter when shot. Also, you can finally shoot each other! Well not really because TIME PORTALS The whole thing is really starting to come together. I'm looking to finish the environment in the next few days and then implement the scoring. After that it's the home stretch!
  13. [Release] Live from the Past

    Added dodge rolls! Great for evading enemy bullets or sneakily shooting through your past self!

    Some good chunky pixels you got there.
  15. [Release] Live from the Past

    Playing around with more interactable physics objects and the new 2D dynamic lighting

    OMG I love the giant cheatin hitman.
  17. [Release] Live from the Past

    Only had a bit of time to work on it this weekend but I started working on some environment art and also implemented some physics objects. The fun thing about the physics objects is that they block bullets but are also affected by all timelines simultaneously. That means that if in a previous timeline you missed a shot because your bullet was blocked by a chair, you can then shoot the chair early in your current timeline to get it out of the way so that your past self's bullet won't get blocked anymore.
  18. [Release] Pause Screen From Battletoads 2!

    I got close I think. I got stuck at the part with the boat and the little tiny things. I sadly had to stop because I alt-tabbed out and then when I tried to go back to it the mouse input wasn't working anymore.

    Love how so many people are paying homage to Wizard Jam for this final jamming. If you need any sprites or anything from past Wizard Jam games I've worked on to include as passengers and stuff let me know. I think I still have those Rich Uncle Cool Uncle Megaman sprites around somewhere...

    I don't know how to describe what I just experienced.
  21. [Release] Live from the Past

    In today's update, pixel-Breckon is mildly annoyed by an increasing number of pixel-Remos from the past.
  22. [RELEASED] What Remains of Idle Thumbs

    Love the idea! And yeah, that title gets me right in the heart.
  23. [Release] Live from the Past

    The idea is to have the whole timeline rewind to the start of the duel whenever a player gets a kill, so as long as each player resets to their own side of the arena and there's enough obstacles between them camping shouldn't be an issue. I looked into it! Seems like unfortunately it only works if the game has steam works integration but I'll see what I can do. I haven't seen that game before but yeah, it's a similar concept!
  24. [Dev Log] The Wizard

    Based on the art style my brain keeps thinking that this wizard is going to also be a noire-style detective.
  25. [Released] Beppo's Hole (in one golf)

    It's never too early for a mid-jam power move!
