Hello everyone. I'd like to show you all a game I've been working on, inspired by the Bounce game found on Nokia phones - Orbulus.

Orbulus is a single player platforming game. You play as a blue orb whose objective is to collect all the crystals in
a strange world, while avoiding enemies and other obstacles.

The orb has no weapons; you will have to rely on your wits and reflexes in order to survive.

The game will feature an ambient soundtrack, composed by myself. You can listen to one of the game tunes here:

I have been working on Orbulus on and off since June 2015, and I hope to have it finished by the end of the year.

Work to be done:
>  Other levels to be implemented
>  Levels that are already completed to be tweaked
>  Checkpoints to be added
>  New enemies to be added
>  All music for the game is completed, however some fixes will need to be done
>  Ending sequence to be created
>  (Only if there is time) Bonus areas that can only be accessed by means of a hard-to-find keystone to be added


This looks great! I like the atmosphere you've created; I can easily get a sense of it with the music and the screenshots put together. Do you mind if I ask what software you used to make the music?


Thanks! I used Linux MultiMedia Studio (LMMS) to make the music.

Hello everyone, I would like to apologize for the lack of updates these past few months. I'm afraid that real life and study have spared me little time for working on this game.

Here's what progress has been made on the game:

> Status bar design has been updated; font used to display lives, crystals remaining, and score has been changed (the font used in the above screenshots is a placeholder font [made by me] used until the necessary font license was purchased).
>Crystal design has been changed.
> Level 11 has been added - needs to be tweaked.
> Previous levels have been tweaked.

WIP screenshot of Level 3. Status bar has been updated, as well as crystal design and status bar font.
