I am taking a break from the development of The Outermost Bastion for participate at the #LOWREZJAM 2017 on itch.io https://itch.io/jam/lowrezjam2017
Last year I did 64x64 UFOs in about 15 hours http://gamejolt.com/games/64x64-ufos/200076
This year, with the help of a friend that is taking care about the art and with a bit of more free time, I am experimenting something new for me but a genre that I love. Horizontal scrolling beat 'em up!
So far after being stuck a bit with the code, I am progressing quite well.
Here you can see in chronological order the videos of my work in progress game (aimed to be up to 4 players), 64x64 ill-fated:
VIDEO 1 - First testing, goblin enemy and cave with parallax.
VIDEO 2 - Multiple enemies, Life/Stamina/Mind bars. You can attack only if you have stamina left, every attack drains some stamina. To make it fair, enemies as well have stamina. Torch effects.
VIDEO 3 - New enemy with different logic, first attack normally and then stick on you and suck your blood.
VIDEO 4 - Multiplayer (2 players for the moment), New boss monster: Drake, Loss of sanity effect (not on video, you will have to try it in the game).
Let me know if you would like to know more about the game, I will try to squeeze some time before the end of the competition to give you more info
VIDEO 5 - Control selection screen, character selection and multiplayer for 4 players in actions.
