Game Development Progress

I couldn't find the initial topic for my game so I will put any future progress in this blog.

Here's a more up to date version: 2021/41/GameTeaser (.zip)

Holding Shift while pressing the left and right arrows while on the title screen will allow you to iterate through 5 levels at a time.

Cool! I recall this type of puzzle game a while back - works well - good job!

Cheers for the kind comment Steve.

Could do with some kind of level map or something, I reckon.
I'd lazily do a bog-standard grid, but .. *shrugs*

I like the sound of that, I might look into it.

Here's an updated version with cheat mode enabled, enjoy! Linkage!

I like the new darker palette, seems to suit it much better.

@Jay, I did some tweakage to some of the images a short while back. I still might sort out different title music though, I'm not happy with the current one and that's why I disabled it by default, click the music icon or press M and hear some GBH to the ear holes.

Due to recent events this game may take a while longer.

Take as long as you need to, and be glad you've no specific target to reach!

I don't know how I managed to do this in my current state of mind but I have managed to build in a swipe feature so now it works on Android.
Saturday, 13 November 2021, 14:48
Cool! Sounds like you're readying to pop it on the store, and earn BILLIONS!!!!!!

Move over Elon, here comes Uncle Bulbz!

It be great if a local app developer house offered me a job, the last job I was offered online years ago fell through coz the guy shut down. The dev project was called Glue Engine if I remember rightly and was being done in DarkBasic Pro.
Saturday, 13 November 2021, 18:16
I think the reason the project failed is because Unity and Unreal were suddenly the buzzword at the time and it would have been really hard to compete with those.
Saturday, 13 November 2021, 18:19
There no way I could do AAA stuff even if I was qualified, the stress and fatigue would kill me within a month I reckon.

Does anyone think this looks OK for a game settings screen?

Sunday, 02 January 2022, 00:44
The font looks a bit weird. The black filling.

What I always do is look up references and try something similar.

I noticed the appgamekit people were looking for a new programmer. The things you needed to have on your c.v was heavy though.
Sunday, 02 January 2022, 01:14
Yeah that background did look a bit dark. I've changed it to match the title screen.

Sunday, 02 January 2022, 01:16
I wanted a quirky text font to go with the game so I created that font that's in the screenshot for use throughout the game.
Friday, 07 January 2022, 22:34
This game finally has a name. The Need For Friction
Saturday, 08 January 2022, 02:33
LOL! Sounds perfect.
Saturday, 08 January 2022, 04:02
I love the name 😍💓😍

I like the little block style of the title. Any change you could do the top icons in a similar style? I think that'd blend together better.
Saturday, 08 January 2022, 11:33
The settings gear button seems to blend in so maybe I could style the other buttons in the same way. Cheers for the tip Jay.
Saturday, 08 January 2022, 13:01
Changed the colour scheme on the buttons and added black lines between the squares on the title to make i t stand out a bit more.

Saturday, 08 January 2022, 13:26
Yeah, it's not as garish, now.
Saturday, 08 January 2022, 19:44
Now that this game has a settings option I'm starting to wonder if the music On / Off button is kind of redundant.
Saturday, 08 January 2022, 20:10
Like the screenies!
Saturday, 08 January 2022, 20:52
Thanks matey!
