nyd 2015

Recommended Posts

2014 is on its final round, so it is time to call for entries for the next issue of New Years Disc.

So feel free to code, paint, compose for/with our beloved Atari 8 bit machine.

Send it to me till end of december 31st (UTC+1). Expected release will be around 14 hours later.

Just a short reminder for anyone, who may haved missed it ;)

 

Today I had my last day at work for this year, so time for the a8 should come.

 

Maybe someone else has time, too :)

Today I got a little game ready. (ok some small bug has to be cleaned up tomorrow)

 

It's written in QUICK and the source will be on the disc, too.

The bug is caught. Be sure to always set an ELSE, where it is needed ;)

So the game is done now (about 5 hours real time from start to actual status) - not sure, if I will do a pimped version in future.

When everybody takes away the suspense, I'll do so as well :)

For those who want a surprise I put it in spoiler tags.

 

 

 

It will be the epilogue to H.i.t.C.

I bet you all wanted to know what happened after flying the little Heli beyond the corpse of the dead end boss, right?

 

You have to go deeper into the cave - by foot :)

 

It's a demo of what "HitC" was supposed to be, but as we ran out of time we made the player a Heli.

But as the engine is very flexible it was possible to churn out this little game in two weeks.

Honest people should now go back to "HitC EE" and play it through before they play the NYD2015 game :P

 

Oh, I shouldn't have said "we". This game has gfx by Flash and Music/Sfx by OSon. So not the original HitC crew.

 

 

 

However, as I seem to have caught a cold my main objective is to make it playable till the deadline and you have to deal with gfx glitches and bad collision detection :(

 

 

EDIT:

pps, do you need a pre-version for size? It should be around 40Kb on disk. Maybe more if Flash does a fullscreen titlepic :)

No, simply send the final and I will find a place on the nyd :)

But be sure that it runs on real machine. If you can't test a pre version could help, as I have an 800 XL ready.

i don't really have anything ready at the moment apart from an old prototype i was refitting for a scrolltext that never came. Might do some surgery on that perhaps... it has raster bars!

Just did another small screen. Might get merged with my first one ... perhaps. Time matters.

i've just got to write a proper scrolltext and do the linking... it's nothing special but there's a new tune from Bex/Slipstream in there.

Sent our game via PM. Hope he get's it :)

 

As said before I am pretty ill and will go to bed again soon (no party for me tonight)

Therefore, the game is full of glitches and bugs. And if you completed it, the game crashes :)

However, it is playable (although one has to get used to the collision detection :) )

 

And the bonus screen at the end of the game isn't working as well. so just jump down and let it crash :)

Depending on how fast I recover there might be an update which will at least give a proper ending.

 

 

See ya next year :)
