Work In Progress (and Discontinued) Screenshot Thread
« on: January 12, 2015, 11:37:16 PM »
Hi all. I figured it would be nice to have a thread where we share work in progress screenshots and thoughts of the cool projects we are working on, and you also don't want to start a new thread just for it. I know I'm often curious what people are cooking up! I think posts about discontinued projects should also be welcome here, since others can draw inspiration from them and also learn from their shortcomings, postmortem style. I think sharing these WIP and discontinued project screenshots is a great thing for our community to do. :)

I'll start with my first (recent, not including back in 2010) attempt at a fangame: I Wanna Dream of 100, from a little over 1 year ago. I thought a 100 floor game with calm and dreamy environments and original (albeit crappy) art would be fun to play and to make. I soon found out that 100 floors is a *lot* of content, and that I wasn't as comfortable with fangame level design yet as I thought, so I dropped it. I do like a lot of the ideas it has though, and I just might come back to it. I later thought of ideas for a final stage and boss, and a neat gimmick that would play nice with the whole game: an optional collectible item in every room, which is only visible when you are near it so you have to hunt for it, and more challenging to get to than the hardest platforming in the main path, so the game appeals to both beginner and intermediate players.

I'm looking forward to what everyone has to share! :)

(Mods, feel free to spoiler these pictures if need be. I'm not sure what's appropriate. Thanks.)

I'm working on a one-screen game, and I had made a bunch of individual save segments in RMJ, but had yet to fit and connect them all together into one screen. After having trouble doing it in my head, I decided to just draw out all the segments on graph paper, cut each one out, and physically rearrange them. It turned out to be effective! It was also pretty fun, and I was very entertained by the concept, so I figured I would share. :)

This was my original idea for I wanna play an adventure game:

Some spikes I made for it:

An idea for the first boss and after beating him I was thinking u could go over the cave instead of in for a secret or something, that's why the danger sign is there:

making art for this game turned out to be too time consuming, so I decided to tone it waaaay back and go simple for my first game.  At some point I might revisit this, but at the moment I am getting close to finishing a another fangame.
here's a screenshot from stage 1 of the new unfinished game I am working on atm:

I like the idea of this thread  :atkHappy:

Working from time to time on my third boss for "I wanna be the Tower".

It has some kind of ikaruga gimmick. This is the attack I created 2 days ago:

Making a game based on Porter Robinson's 'Worlds'. Barely made an intro for it.

I have no idea what to put here.

Anyway, a lot of things have changed to myself in the past. I wont visit the forum much, but i will check out the streams once in a while.
