Flora and the Ghost Mirror

Recommended Posts

It's obvious that I can't make that many carts at this moment and I don't have yet the fancy casings suggested by Luc. To accelerate the process of getting the right materials and do a proper release of the game, I need some money and negociating with Luc of course to maybe get casings now and pay later.

 

For now, I'm gonna do a pre-release batch which is basicaly using my actual ressources and publish a few black cartridges of Flora. They will be all signed of course. My estimation is that I can probably do 5 to 10 of these cartridges, and I would like to know who is gonna pay $30 to get one. If you are interested, say it clearly here in response to this message.

 

I agree with Pixelboy that these should be sold on ebay to get you some money for the rest of the carts. I tried to PM you but it wasn't going through so I emailed you on Youtube I have a few Ideas so send me a PM :cool: :thumbsup:

I saw your message on Youtube... even if we are late in night now and I'm technicaly supposed to be asleep.

 

I've took time this evening to reply some messages, to watch a few videos on Youtube from my subscriptions box, and to visit and type a message in facebook to be kinda up-to-date regarding what is happenning around me in the Internet... because I'm fully aware that I will have basicaly no life during the next 72 hours or so just to end the project properly : optimizing, testing, fixing last issues, recompiling, testing again, burn rom chips and solder them. Monday, if I'm correct, I will be able to ship some CV Flora carts. If delayed, carts will be shipped maybe Wednesday in a vague hope that one of you get a copy in time for xmas. I can't do really better than that.

If there's any chance I can get in on the first run black cart release, I would certainly pay the $30. I have been away from this site for a few days, now to my dismay. :)

I am planning to do a box for Flora at the same time as I do a box for my two upcoming games Super Action Bowling and Reckless Wizard. My local printer says that he can do the die for a reasonable price, but batching the cutting of the boxes is the way to go.

 

I just need some help with the layout of the boxes maybe. Maybe I'll send a PM to phattyboombatty. He seems to be the wiz at box layout.

First of all, let me just say, Daniel, THANK YOU! This has all the makings of a great game! I am very excited to see the final copy.

 

I DID get through all 5 or 6 levels (can't remember) without dying once, though. I hope the game loops back around after the boss battle and keeps getting harder? Or even better -- more levels? The game should not have an end but just keep getting more difficult. Could you tell me if that is the plan? If so, you may want to implement a point system, although that's not necessarily required by any means.

 

IF the game is only going to be 5 or 6 levels plus/minus boss, then it is too easy as currently constituted and won't have much replay value, at least for me.

 

Also, LOVE the music! However...can you re-record Flora's voice using a girl, rather than man's falsetto voice? It would sound a lot more natural.

 

Thanks again!
