Atari Lynx game: unnamed

Recommended Posts

Hello Atari Lynx fans! This is a preview topic of my second Atari Lynx game: unnamed.

 

This project is at a very early stage. It might not be finished, it might be only a demo. Time will tell what can be achieved and what is possible on Lynx. Honestly I'm also not sure if I can manage making it. Anyway idea is that Unnamed will be escape adventure game based on graphics and some small portions of text. It will include interaction with environment (collecting items, opening doors etc.) Of course there will be a few rooms / stages. All of this will be submerged in mystery atmoshpere.

 

For now one, i made beta graphics. This is placeholder picture from Handy, enjoy:

I love the little details on that screen shot - like the candle.

 

It would be nice to see this get all the way to a full release, I'd certainly buy a copy.

 

Good luck :thumbsup:

Is there bomb in the game? Suspicious looking wall at top left corner. Also the yellow creature inside the house look like a certain electric mouse from a popular game.

There is no bomb :) I want it more text exploration oriented then game you suggest.

 

Hopefully I can manage making full game of it, wish me luck. I will inform about progress in topic.

Thank you for the kind words! They keep me motivated :)

 

Work on engine goes not bad, sometimes I could call it even smooth. The only problem is that this kind of game (which is typical for non linear titles) creates a lot of "if''s" in code. So to keep everything together I will simplify some things for now on (like menus or items).

 

Whats current status? Moving, looking, taking, and using is done (in beta stage). I will produce logic for first room this weekend hopefully :)

Someday someone needs to use this as a video game title. :D

So.. first room created :) Need to fix some details in engine but overall it's working.

 

Now I'm designing more rooms on the paper. It requires a lot of thinking, but it is really fun! As a child, I painted similar things. This is how it looks (censored with blur):

Project of game stages is completed on paper. Now I am redrawing them in GIMP :) Work goes slowly because I do it only in my free time.


I also created simple website about my games. Is is available here http://totheunseen.kylos.pl - click on Marcin Siwek Homebrew Games to access it. You can also find more info about game unseen there.

I am very impressed by your photographs and atmosphere in the nature clips on your web page. This material is extremely professional by any standards. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you! I forgot to mention that there is also site about my photography / movies. It's not related to my games, although parts of game unseen is based on some real life adventures.
