Hey ya! Hi!
Some (slow, as always) progresses with The Wild West, my main project.
Today, I?m showing you three teaser gifs + some changes I made that it?s problably not show in a right way through images:
- Gamepad support. Now the game is fully playable (menu and game) without the keyboard only using the pad (tested with a Xbox360 like controller). I have some future interesting ideas around this feature.
- They are not very noticeable in the screens (gif compression), but here are some new ambiente particles and effects.
- The sun has some technichal change too to make it more "real" or at least, for western effective.
A new enemy/indian type. He shots arrows directly to you (not finished yet):

A pre-alpha ver. of an another enemy type: wolves (I gotta redesign and reanimate them from the ground, I know, but I wanted to make their AI and test them early):

New slomotion mode activated/deactivated in critic moments like just before a boss:

Still lots of things to tweak, create, implement, finish...
Thanks for all your attention, words and support.
Too much time without any updates or new notices about the game I think, so here are some new screenshoots (or teasers).
These last days/weeks, I?ve also started another parallel game project (that I can?t announce till now) not to get saturated with The Wild West and continue workin? on it with illusion (and new experiences and knowledge).
Well, let?s go to the interesting part (hope that):
Some (maybe unlockeable???) filters to add variety :):
Scanlines (sh*t, I think they aren?t visible at this sh*tty gif xD, but I promise they are there, jaja):

Old tv (sorry for the weight of this):

Pure wild west (my favourite one, I think):

Let?s take a look at the new pain effect: what do you think? has I improved it from the last ones :)?

And a more interesting and longtimed teaser, with some unshown enemies and behaviours:

And that?s all for now guys! Hope you like it.
I will continue updating the topic as I progress. For no, I will work on this all the incoming week, and gotta say we?ve started to design music too (yes, I say we because the music is not goint to be mine).
Thanks for all folks!
Yes, it?s still at 20%, I?m not too good controlling it xD.
Well well well, as today an indie retro game lover magazine has posted a coverage about "The Wild West" (link, link), I think it?s time to show some new screenshots and improvements (and I have more to come, but I prefer to make things with time).
So, here they are:
Started to add an interactive minimal simple menu to the start screen:

The new "reload" hud element (you can compare it with the older one from first post). Much cleaner and intuitive:

Jumping and shooting:

New basic enemy (they are more difficult that they seem at start): scorpions:

New enemy killing dynamic (as you can?t shoot downward):

Pain effect for when you are hitted:

In the last days I?ve been working on:
- bullet (and bullet hit) improvements
- Day/night cycle bug fixing
- New enemy types and designs
- Hud improvements
- (unlockeable?????) Filters (screenshots to come)
- Jumping/falling/landing poses
- Internal optimizations
- First boss fixes
And that?s all folk for now :).
Thanks for all your motivation and support.
As somebody of you know, I started to work on a title called "Dieeeeeeeeee" some time ago, but as you can notice, I decided to pause it?s development and create something more direct, fast and why not say, easier to design. And that?s how I started to work on "The Wild West" about 2 weeks ago (in the few hours I have free after my sport trainings and office works).
Every image I?m posting here is directly taken from it?s gameplay (I?ll publish a pre-alpha demo and gameplay video in the near future).
It?s my first "pixel-art" based project, so don?t be very cruel with me.
Well, the ingame screenshots, hope you like them:

(You can open the images in a new tab for viewing them at their?s original x2 size)
The game features day/night cycles (with heat effect), dynamic clouds, life packages, stars, enemy creation points, particles, basic physics for some objects, ...
- More and more enemy types (of course)
- More animations (for player and enemies)
- More bosses
- Changes/Redesign of messages (reaload, boss, ...)
- Music + sounds (now it have some testing temporal sounds
- Some titlescreen options
- Secret (for now) features :)
Everything is made by me: graphics, animations, game developmentm game idea, gameplay system... although I?m going to be helped for the music and sounds.
And, as always, sorry for my bad english :).
