Spyro Project Prototype(s) (Fan Game)

Hi...

Since March this year, I have been working on this Spyro project of mine, and it has been coming along nicely. I will most likely be able to finish it sometime this year maybe so that's exciting. I have been posting progress videos and updates over at both dS and YouTube for a while now and so why not share it here?

I keep calling these prototypes for some reason because I wanted to experiment in keeping with a real life development cycle, but that didn't last long and the game is more or less in a "first playable" or "alpha" stage by now smile

The links to their downloadable .exe files are in the video descriptions, but I might post a link directly to them here to avoid a kerfuffle. I FEED OFF FEEDBACK yikes <------Feed me!

Controls are currently: WASD to move (although S doesn't move you), <Space> to flame and hold <Shift> to dash/charge.

The videos show how the game has progressed, from earliest to latest. Some earlier versions may be outdated and obsolete so there's no real need to play those tongue

And then there's a couple of glitch videos I made:

The next update is BIG and not far off. I made some screen shots of it but no viedo yet:

New night level with new enemy

Locked chest with key. Explodes with gems when touched if a key has been collected (no image for that happening though)

As you can see, two sheep are visible. The big red thing is a spawner which will be invisible in the actual game. There will always be at least two sheep per spawner.

There is this funny animation I made for when sheep die by fire, similar to the one found in Spyro: Fusion/Orange cool There is also a special butterfly with magical sparkles smilie. These spawn when 10 fodder are killed but I put these two here for the purpose of testing. There's also now a lives counter with an image of lives from Spyro the Dragon smile

And here's a snippet from my changelog smile :

Wafled's awesome change log from his awesome game thing. wrote:

+ Added animations for sheep sprite    21/06/2015
+ Added AI for fodder and a sheep object    21/06/2015
+ Added butterflies which restore hp    21/06/2015
+ Added a fodder spawner    21/06/2015
+ Added special butterfly which spawns every 10 fodder kills    21/06/2015
+ Added lives counter in the HUD with an icon    21/06/2015

I probably don't need any help making this currently, but later on I may need resources like sounds so we'll see tongue

Hope this doesn't lag with all the content I've put up big_smile

EDIT - 20:06 on 05/07/2015

I'm posting a new update here, as well as moving the previous one up to this main post.

Old: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sbS2fMpdVs

New: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-0qLoEpzgQ

EDIT - 18:54 on 27/07/2015

Update!
I won't embed another YouTube video as that would take yet more processing and work for the internet to load.

Have a link instead...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9xfcaTy6Js

Not much in the way of added features this time, but it does smooth out controls a little and adds sound. that's right...SOUND big_smile
Oh, and there's also pausing.

EDIT - 16:00 on 17/08/2015

MOAR UPDATES!

Now, the first two videos are old news, but the third is brand spanking new big_smile

Slightly old news neutral

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AcCW40jDAJI

New stuff yikes
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdSby7ZB8VQ

BE HAPPY!

(Also I should change some of these <youtube> tags to <url> tags to clean this page up a bit).

EDIT - 14:26 on 20/09/2015

Thus far, I've posted a few videos featuring tidbits of updates, but I made this big 29 minute video which sums some of it up. This is a bit out date, though, as this was made over a week ago from now.

Re: Spyro Project Prototype(s) (Fan Game)

Looks nice, gonna download it and check out.

//Edit - So far so good. If you were to ask me, it could use a bit faster movement and better/faster walking animation. Also, the time it takes to walk after bumping into something is nearly painful. but wait, it could be caused by my pc actually. In your recordings it seems slightly faster. If so, then I don't have any problem :v

The funny thing is- [Crushes the Bullet in his teeth.] -in any other circumstance, you might have had a point there. Except my boss is a woman, I was a chick in the 40's, I hate everyone equally, and there's no one alive who can comprehend my sexual preference. So in other words, Miss Van Winkle- (punches Rip in the face) -CH-CH-CH-CHECK YOUR PRIVILEGE!

Re: Spyro Project Prototype(s) (Fan Game)

The game runs at 60 fps. Perhaps your PC may be running it at 30? I have no idea if that is the case or not. ;/

I also wanted to redo movement with faster movement and friction and stuff, more alike Spyro: Fusion/Orange (the game may not be good but movement and controls were great for a 2D platformer approach to Spyro)

Because here at...Waffled company(?)...we value your opinion smile

Edit: I hate having to edit my latest post, but here is the latest development...

[video now moved to the main post at the top]

Edit 2: yet another update, check at the top for details - Edited at 20:05 on 05/07/2015

Re: Spyro Project Prototype(s) (Fan Game)

Sadly, I'm not quite sure about that hmm

Firstly, I don't have any mobile export modules, and secondly, doing so would require publishing it legally to mobile app stores which of course would breach copyright law (which fan games naturally do just by existing anyway but bringing it to a public mobile market, whether it is free or not, would threaten the copyright holder more and/or bring it more unwanted publicity) .

A little test to see what this game would look like in 3D (or 2.5D)!
