Moon Dogs Arcade
« on: 2019-Jan-08 »
Been working on this since 2014 and thought it a good time to post, it's a pixel engine game and in the style of the old single screen arcade games. Working on editor now.

I don't have any video but here's a picture of Moon Dogs Arcade.

Looks interesting, I would like to see it in motion / gameplay ;]
I see that there is 2 player mode, you need to collect all apples or there is some other goal of the game?

I will hopefully be able to make a video soon, my current laptop isn;t powerful enough and haven't decided on capture software for new laptop.
It has a lot put into the movements being fun, and the cats get in the way rather than being "enemies". There's lots of little surprises but yeah at heart it's a straight collect 'em up with scores, timer and replays :D

For low spec laptop You can try Camstudio (link: https://camstudio.org) not best quality, but doesn't require strong pc.
Newer graphic cards have hardware encoding for h264, AMD has ReLive (included with drivers), NVIDIA has ShadowPlay and beside that - OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) also can record your gameplay, no need to buy dedicated software :-)

Really like the look of it - are the graphics watercolour scanned in?
Or is that the shader you mentioned?

Thanks dreamerman, i used to love Camtasia but it got so expensive so i will take a look.

Thanks MrPlow, the trees and mountains yeah, the sky is digital. The level itself is pixelled with a cloth texture then blurred. I use an orange layer with tranparency to kinda try and tie it all together as it looks really bad before filters.
