Nice job! I had trouble seeing the first door the you need to go through as a door, maybe it needs a handle on the door sprite. Playing it a second though, it's very obviously a door with the lantern and doorframe.
Your executable and the data extract separately. Try to keep them in the same folder. Also having a .exe extractor is sketchy as fuck, why not just use .zip or .7zip?As for the game itself, it seems like you've made some decent progress but the level is a step back from last demo day. The clown horn(?) enemies won't attack you until you attack them and I'm pretty sure there's no secrets (or at least they're harder to find than last demo day). Water distortion was cool, if nauseating, maybe tone it down a bit. The temp sound effects were really bad.I look forward to seeing where you go with this project.
Hey Phil, thanks for playing!
First and foremost, I'm sorry for the extractor. The goal was to make the noobiest installation possible, but I guess any OS or person have a zip extractor nowadays. Don't know what I was thinking.
Second, you touched some interesting points regarding the levels and the enemies.
When you mean the "level is a step back from last demo day", do mean the overall design? It sure have more interactivity now and it kinda reflects the switch from using a modeling tool to a full fledged level builde, which I'm still getting used to. Most elements were rushed due time constains. As you can see, there's handful of stuff in the game now that kept me busy. And there's one secret room!
And yeah, about the enemies... I ran into some trouble making a proper AI and since it's work that takes a really long time, the focus for this demo day was to have a playable level. But don't worry, making cool enemies are in my top priority list!
You can also provide value feedback thourght the survey provided in the game menu. It will help me a lot!
"When you mean the "level is a step back from last demo day", do mean the overall design?"I suppose. The level feels very linear (switch unlocks door, go in door to get key, use key to go to the water, press switch in water to reach portal).Last demo day I think I played through the level twice just to go on a secret hunt. It was much smaller and the main path was less interesting, but the whole level was fairly consistent and the secrets added an extra layer of interactivity.EDIT: Just watched someone else play through and turns out there were secrets. I wasn't expecting you'd need to shoot stuff, just bump into it like Doom.
