SNES Platformers (Part 2)

As some of you already know I’m working on a game called Becky.
We’ve been working quite hard to get to this point and we know it’ll take a whole ton more to get it where we want it to be.

So this is the reason why you haven’t really seen any art from me. I’ve been busy spriting and writing for Becky the past few weeks to get this far.

Becky is a hobby project that me and Qcode are working on, so we only work on this when we feel like it (I’ve been motivated to work on this daily though xD). I’ll try to squeeze in some art sometimes too.

There is a whole lot to talk about, but I’ve made a post on a forum I frequent that explains quite a bit, so if you’re interested go here: http://forum.stabyourself.net/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=4828

If any questions you have aren’t answered in that topic, feel free to ask me!

Without the support of most of you I wouldn’t have been able to do this, so major thanks to all of you! I hope you guys will support me through this!

Any gamer/artist needs to take a look at this game & meet your new art idols Maximilian Degen and Simon Kopp. 
I invested in it purely for the art (because HOT DAMN!!) as I never buy platformers.
The game had me rolling around in too many feels almost right away. It was an emotional whack in the gut almost on-par with UP(pixar). 
The music is insanely beautiful too, take a listen: https://youtu.be/geyJKkgjf1s

I don’t EVER promo games but this one deserves a look and WAY more love! <3 don’t let the gorgeous setting fool you either the game is apparently quite hard at times!

Rain World 

developed by Videocult, published by [adult swim] games.  

“A survival platformer set in an abandoned industrial environment ravaged by a shattered ecosystem.

Bone-crushingly intense rains pound the surface, making life as we know it almost impossible. The creatures in this world hibernate most of the time, but in the few brief dry periods they go out in search of food.

You are a nomadic slugcat, both predator and prey in this land. You must hunt enough food to survive another cycle of hibernation. Other bigger creatures have the same plan.”

Wanderer

System: PC

Release: TBA

Developer: KaiserCVR, Fenrir

Website: wanderer-game.com / wanderer-game.tumblr.com / forums.tigsource.com

Description: “Wanderer is a 2D, low-res Sci-fi cinematic platformer/adventure game that tells the tale of a man named Rook, a greying convict who wakes from cold sleep aboard an orbital prison facility that’s crash landed on the ruins of an Earth long since abandoned by humanity. With the guidance of a hacker named Jin, Rook must navigate the station, and struggle to survive against rioting prisoners and the bizarre extradimensional beasts that haunt the dead planet. Core gameplay merges pseudo-turn based combat, puzzle solving, dialogue choice/decision making, and non-linear exploration into a story driven, immersive experience.”

Update on Fading Soul. I’ve added in most of the elements, including moving platforms and Mario 3D World inspired shifting platforms (they switch when you jump) as well as finalizing the main fading and soul collection mechanic.

I’m learning so much by just playing around in Game Maker Studio. I’m so impressed with what I’ve managed to build so far! 

For those who asked- the game will only be a short demo download for PC at the moment and will be completely free. If all goes well I will try to make a whole game and make it available for download on other platforms. (Mac first, than maybe mobile…)
