Pinkman's Lab

  • Hi everyone,

    I would like to present you my first prototype of the puzzle game. Pinkman's Lab is a compilation of ideas from old school disney cartoons and modern tv series. Nevertheless, in the prototype of my game I am trying to create an exciting gameplay and design nice features.

    Making of

    I think it could be interesting to know how we came up to all this stuff. As I said before this is my first prototype of this kind of games. I am graphic designer and I knew about gamedev not so much. But I got a task to create a concept of the game for tablets and I made some research how can I do it without programming. Here we go :)

    I guess one of the reason why I choosed this topic for the game because I graduated medical school, my sister and my wife are biologists :) I wanted to make interesting science fiction game with nice gameplay, graphic and music.

    Firstly, I played a lot different games on iPod, iPad and Samsung, watched walkthrough the games on Youtube and so on.

    Secondly, I made some sketches of characters and drew primitive level design on the paper.

    Thirdly, I tried to create simple prototype directly in Construct 2 just to be sure that it works at all. I checked many tutorials and read manual on the Scirra web site. Thank you guys for all this stuff! ;)

    Forth, I created graphics, animations, user interface elements and so on. After that many rows of actions were added to event sheets.

    Of couse between all these steps I had a lot of troubles and sleepless nights but finally something came out :)

    What am I going to do next time? Add nice music and sounds, create new levels, fix bugs and have much fun!

    PS Sorry for my English.

  • beautiful graphics and nice gameplay.

    the only thing i would suggest, is to make the 'cup' transparent, and place it on a position or layer on top of the cheese. so you can see the cheese go inside of the cup, instead of on top of it. it is a small detail but an important one, for the 'payoff' of winning each level.

    otherwise, great work so far.

  • Thank you for your comment! I tried different ways to solve this problem with a flask. Finally, it will be animated on collision with cheese. Also you will get pop up dialog window after each completed level!

    Just had no time to implement it in first version. :)

  • Very nice and coherent art style! Good luck with the game.
