The Kiwi's TaleWitchBlasterDerelict Blow Stuff Up

Misc Project Update

I've been tinkering with a few of my game projects for the Earok 2011 collection.


Awesome new artwork from Anthony. He's replaced my Bat with a brilliantly cute one, in three variations (Regular, Kamakazi and Hip Hop - Not depicted in the screenshot). Kirsty noted that the new Bat was too cute to shoot at. Also a palette swapped version of the Witch for player two.

Two player mode is coming along nicely, except there's lots of minor glitches here and there that need to be ironed out. Definitely very playable though.  It's kind of fun to try controlling both characters at the same time.

Heart of Ice

This is not an actual screenshot, rather a conceptual mockup of the Monkey port. In the end I decided to go for pseudo-isometric instead of faking third person 3D. Also there will be dialogue between the two characters throughout the game. The actual game itself won't change much, except there's definitely going to be a two player mode, and I may make the game much more frentic. I just wish I could get some better artwork, though!

Noah More Heroes

A few bugs have been fixed, plus a custom build for the Winnitron NZ has been produced and sent out. No word yet on whether or not it actually works.


I got an email the other week asking for a two player mode, so it's definitely going in. Hard part is working out the ideal mechanics, even just doing a straight two player co-op mode could be tricky as it was never designed to handle more than one player character, and the scripted events expect the player to be in one place. Also, there's a new story for the game in progress.

Cheers Anthony, I'll probably finish it up for release at GNC on Saturday.
