It’s time for another #screenshotsaturday showcase! After my first week back at work (and unfortunately catching the dreaded lurgy), I’ve not had a great deal of time to do much game development, but I still managed to tweak a couple of things in my game…
Jack B. Nimble
I’ve updated the intro and title screen to reference my Noonan.Design pseudonym – it cuts down a little on the repetition of my name being displayed from splash screen, to credits, to copyright.
I thought I’d make the GIF a little bigger this week too. I’m still working out the whole format for these posts – I need to get the balance right between images and text. Incidentally, I’m completely open to feedback.
I’ll be following this post with a development update very soon and perhaps a related tutorial video… maybe.
Obviously from the aesthetics of my own indie game, Jack B. Nimble, it wouldn’t take a rocket scientist to decipher that I’m a bit of a Game Boy fan, and rather partial to a 4-colour palette.
This looks something like Animal Crossing meets Zelda: Link’s Awakening, and for those that may not already know, I’m a bit of a fan of that game.
Unfortunately I’ve not been able to find a title for this project, other than the fact that the developer tags it as “seasonal game” on their tumblr.
I’ll be following this one for sure!
Fatal Flight: Advent
Fatal Flight: Advent has some colourful visuals and appears to use procedural generation in its level design. I’d love to get my hands on a demo to feel how how it controls though, as it does look a little twitchy. I got some seriously heavy Star Wing vibes from this.
While there’s a lot of nostalgia for the aesthetics and gameplay of Star Wing (known to most as Star Fox), there haven’t been a great deal of attempts to continue what Argonaut Software started. As a kid, I was looking forward to a sequel that never saw the light of day; sure, we got Lylat Wars (known to most as Star Fox 64), but the aesthetic wasn’t up to par and everything that followed was average at best (though I was partial to a little Star Fox Command).
Perhaps a game like Fatal Flight: Advent might just fill that void?
Look forward to another #screenshotsaturday showcase next week!
