You mean the underwater shotemup?
That is a  bit of a bigger project, one I won´t be able to do, if I have to do everything, in ~3 months.
I could change the gfx style to easy that part but I´m doubt of next project, it should fit a 2 months time scale, just like the outhouse. :)

Thanks, I said I bundleed a poster image with the game, here is a glimpse of it.
It is a 14kx18k image and it should print neatly at 300 dpi up to 2 meters tall or close to that.

About Itchio, it does not sell as much as steam, but then, I can´t afford placing all my games on steam for the 100$ gets a bit too much.
None of those stores will auto-sell your game, you have to rely on your notoriety, and since I don´t yet have one, steam is a bit of a waste.
That leads me to itchio, which is a platform I like from its beginning.

About feedback, I still get more of that on the regular forums, but they are certainly getting smaller as time goes by.
I try to tweet/facebook and some discord too, but that does not seem to do much for non notorious people.

Moneywise, if you bring people over, it will sell and it works. I have some 50$ lying around there and mostly from past 2 months.

My take is that, if one can produce a good number of good/avarage quality games, say 10 games, it should be enough to push sales on both stores.
I find that as I start a new project and start dev logging it, newcomers eventually stumble on my other games and they do buy it.
So as long as I keep producing and already have some games on sale, things flow.

Hello back chaps! Finished the game, it is for sale on itchio here for $5:

It is a little bit expensive compared to my other games but I added a super high resolution exploded tech illustration of a color computer 2 to help the value.
It should go to $2.99 in a couple months and the image will become free. ;)

Here is the trailer:

Here a gameplay video, very bad one, will probably change it to a more exciting one later:

And I will later finish the making of too here:

Will bring some keys for us soon!

I wonder what those functions do, where did you find their meaning @Qedo ?

edit: just found out, and I actually posted on the thread too! :D I forgot about them.

Off Topic / Checkpoint reached!

I was working with arduinos to get a hud display on my motorbike.
Today I just got it partially working, and running glbasic to boot!!
I will soon be able to compile apps for it!

Autoshoot won't work as the game will pause a lot. I tryed it while also making it move half speed if button is pressed but didnt work either. So I reverted to the 1 button 1 speed control.

Dual stick seems like the best option.
I will make a beta soon and share here.
I was also thinking about using analog like half way does not move the ufo but it aims towards that direction. Push analog full way for movement. I hope one can aim without moving by adding these? I think the original on the coco has a bit of this.

Thanks for the kind words chaps! I´m still stuck on sound, had to skip a few days to cool down a bit.
But yeah, the controls are going to be hard to set.

The current way I did is an old school way and I´m noticing people have difficulties playing it. :(
I could use both analogs on a joypad but I wanted to keep it pad+single button for the sake of the oldschool.

It could be that fine tuning current controls could fix it but I´m unsure.
 I will see to finish everything and then to get to it at the end, some more ideas might pop up.

Great, it is a common platform! :good:

Some bat orbit.

And some sound work in progress:

Here a study compiling a series of coco game´s sounds. Hopefully I can come up with "proper" sounds for the game, sounds that mimic the real machine or are , at least, possible to do.
I´m still debating about the pause/play sound deed, some I can keep.

GLBasic - en / Re: water effect

Very neat! It has some sharp slices, very interesting and looks great. :good:

Just a glbasic game that mimics the semigraphics mode on the color computer.
I dumped the font and recreated it glbasic wise and the game runs on a 64x32 virtual screen, square pixels, then it gets scaled to 640x480 with the tall semigraphic pixels and I add the fonts, then upscale the result to whatever user´s resolution. I hope it ends up very close to a coco game.
I´m working with the sound and music now and hope that will also be genuinely similar. :booze:

Damn that is sad to hear space. I hope you heal fast.
