Rage Day

-HEYY
So i took part in PewDiePie's Game Jam and i have made this abomination - Rage Day.
Here are the links: the game's page - the forum post
Its a simple infinite scrolling platformer shooter in which you have to collect meat from killed animals in a short period of time (listening to Sepultura). Now why would you want to kill peacefull animals? Well...
Because they stole the cake.
Obviously.

PS: STS has now it's own webpage! Clicky

Spam The Spacebar Alpha 3

    In this version i have added a effects system and the stats are actually working now. When walking around you can now hold left shift to hold your direction and space to hack & slash. The projectile upon hitting something checks if it contains MobBehavior and if it does, it "injects" the effects that have been given to it in the constructor.
    Effects are stored in the Stats class and are being updated by the parent Behavior class, they can be repeating(several steps) or persistent (one time effect, wears of after some time passes) and can affect all the stats of the Stats class. There is also a option to revert the effects of a effect, so you can have temporary debuffs or buffs.
    In later versions i will add a Buff class witch will hold several Effects and have a name, description, scale(for power scaling, spell levels), image(for the interface), and will be read from a file.
    The hardest part is adding the Spell class, it could be a projectile spell, AOE spell(line - from player to cursor, point - around cursor), target spell(click on entity) or instantiate spell(spawns an entity). It would also have a sound effect, image, name, description, array of arrays of buffs for on hit effects(for different levels), max spell level, array of spell upgrade point costs(for upgrading), array of ints representing at witch level the player can upgrade the spell to the next level, array of arrays of item names to consume from inventory(2d array for leveling) and of course spirit cost. Again, everything would be read from a file, so i will also need to make a editor for that to speed up the process.

tl;dr: added effects and will add buffs& spells, shitton of work.

Heres the STS Alpha 0.3 : Clicky

News

    As you guys probably noticed, i haven't posted anything in a while, so this post is a sort of excuse. I have a LOT of work right now, the school is almost over, and i've got some grades to pull up. But once the vacation starts, damnn, i will be 24/7 behind the screen heh :D.
    In some spare time that i had last couple of weekends, i hacked together a combat system, a unfinished shop and some basic AI (no A* pathfinding :C). I can't show any pics of it right now tho, im writing this on my phone xd. Combat looks awful, you can only throw white bananas that symbolize weapon slashes but later there will be some spells, bufs&debuffs, knockback etc..
    I'm considering multiplayer, but i'm afraid of the work it requires to add. I see 2 options :

  1. Narya - "A framework for building realtime distributed systems with an emphasis on multiplayer online games (massive or otherwise).". Really nice, simple, and kinda makes me want to implement it ;)
  2. KryoNet - "A Java library that provides a clean and simple API for efficient TCP and UDP client/server network communication using NIO. KryoNet uses the Kryo serialization library to automatically and efficiently transfer object graphs across the network.". More efficient than Narya, runs on Android (but the game will be desktop only so thats no advantage for me), probably a little harder, but looks like it's worth it.
I imagine multiplayer will be more like (some number)-player co-op instead of server-client like, fits the theme more i think. Im open to suggestions so if you guys have some proposals, pm me :)

Heheh get it?

Progress

Mobs are working. They load, they move, they think, they wear gear, but can't fight yet :c I hope i will find some time tomorrow to add (pa)trolling and aggressive behavior. Im still having trouble with figuring out how to do the AI, perhaps waypoints with A*? Cause A* with tiles is kinda impractical, keeping in mind that there could be various sized tiles and static objects. If someone comes up with something, or did this before and can offer me help, pm me ( olekdlugi@gmail.com ).
