Post-ailure :D

Hi All,

Long time since the last post as usual πŸ˜€ thats because the new year semster has started and I have lots of stuff to be done.

I had 3 news I wanted to share with you πŸ™‚

First one is about the site RocketGames a site looks like YoYoGames site and GameJolt as It is used for uploading games. This site has the ability that the developper on it can sell games easily as it support a secure payment method through PayPal.

Payments are made via PayPal with Roket-Games taking a small cut for controlling access to the full version. Submitted games will be moderated before they appear on the site to ensure that they are of sufficient quality to be sold and that the price is appropriate.

There is a nice earnings calculator which shows, for any sale price, the revenues received by the developer, Roket Games and PayPal. Full details on how the scheme will work are available here.

Second one is about an educational game I and a team from my colleague having it as a project for MI (Machine Intellegence) subject. I dont know any details about it as we didnt started it yet but what I can say that it will be made using XNA library πŸ™‚

Third one is about style of art I was trying it using Paint.Net this style of art I dlove it so I may in vacation make a game using this style of art. Take a look on the picture and tell me your opinion πŸ™‚

This is all the news for now πŸ™‚ Hope you still reading the blog πŸ™‚

New Game Release: CrytorYan and Some Poster News

Hey All,

I have made a new Game for QOG Madness 2Hour Compo but I think I can’t participate because the game took developement time more than that (6 hours).

These 6 hours are divided like that the game engine and game took around 3 hours and 43 minutes, The music and sounds took around 1 hour which was so waste of time and The rest was for menus and interfaces.

The game as you can see is called CrytorYan which is a professor zack discovered material. The gameplay is so simple as it is a simple shooter with a small twist.

Story:
Proffessor Zack have discovered a new chemical substance.When he was observing of the heat on the material it make some strange behaviour. The Bluy atoms become insane and want to collide with Whity atoms (Bluy and Whity are the two atoms making the material) if the collison happens it unleash an explosion which destroy any other Whity ones which produce another explosion and so on in a chain reaction manner. The Whity shot some germs that transform the Bluy to its type to survive.

Go and try it now the here is the link.

About the Tocco Project posters I have finished the first one and when I was going to start the second the developing team reduce his expenses so they may not be able to print the second poster. But I told my cousin a plan to reduce the expenses and same time get two different posters is to print 2 large posters and some small posters instead of 3 large ones.


So he will think in that so I started in the second poster and I made a small prototype for it I like to share it with you and tell me your opinion about it.

Waiting comments about the new game and the poster.

Bye Bye

Project Poster First Look and Some News

Hi All,

As I said before that I was working on a poster for my cousin graduation project. I don’t know If I said that or not but we agreed to make two posters for Tocco Project as It is divided into two parts (I don’t know If I said that Before but anyway Tocco project is two parts one is touch surface by fingures and the second is pen that can draw on any projected screen from a Projector)

I have worked for 2 days for now in making it and getting an idea. Yesterday I managed to make the first look on the poster

(Note: the Poster is larger than that image but because its size is so huge so I uploaded a resized version)

Hope u like it. I have lots of other news about competitions and other stuffs.

The IGF has opened the doors now for the submission so if anybody interested to join here is the (link) for students there is no fees on participation so I may join don’t know if I had time for that.

Also QOG (a user on GameJolt website) started a 2 hour competition on the forums like the ones that happens on Poppenkast where the theme is MADNESS so you have to develop a game in 2 hour to participate I want to participate but I don’t know if I can finish the game in two hours so I will try as I have a very awesome small idea. (for more information about compo here is the link)

Third and the last thing is that Experimental Games was re-opened again where every month a prototype game competition is held. This site is managed by Kyle Gabler (The Creator of World of Goo) also Petri (the Creator of Crayon Physics Deluxe). Do you know that World of Goo was created as a prototype called tower of goo on that website also Caryon Physics was the same too.

That all the news for now πŸ™‚

Waiting for comments on the first look on the first poster πŸ™‚
