Hey! I figured that I was a bit over due for a '2014 plans' kinda post, so I quickly whipped up a list of the major projects that I'll be working on, and releasing, over this year.

Cycle; Third Dream

The third game in the Cycle series will introduce NPC houses and characters, a new dynamic dialogue system, as well as greatly improved performance- allowing the game to run silky smooth at 60 FPS. Third Dream will also include updated graphics, 2 new fruit (water melon and coconuts) as well as several other tweaks and improvements.

Box Dude TD 5

Box Dude TD 5 is basically going to build apon the ground work of the previous game, adding in 2 new turrets- 'Poison Ivy' and 'Death Ray', as well as a set of 5 all-new maps. The engine is also going to be updated, adding in new features, such as the ability to cancel turret purchases.

Adventure Fable

Adventure Fable is a new RPG I've been working on for a couple of weeks now. The game will include several quests, weapons, armours and enemies, spread across a range of different areas. Basically, think 'Dragon Fable' in space.

Pixel Box 3

Pixel Box 3, the third and probably final in the world-building series, will add in over 200 blocks, better scene backgrounds, new music, improved presentation, as well as a new line of social/online features. My aim is to basically polish everything up and make the game 'feel more online.'

Of course, those are only the ones I'm working on now- over 2014 I'll be releasing a bunch of cool thingies...so stay tuned for that....them...

Oh, and I attached my yearly youtube 'game reel' belllowww showing off the games I made over last year, because why not.

 

 

Thanks, and Happy (late) New Year!

I'll post about each of them each soon.

Brainstorming


Posted by JackAstral - August 18th, 2012


I haven't posted here in a while so I thought'd just post some info about some upcoming games I'm working on.

READY SKATE
Ready Skate is an arcade-y skateboaring game, inspired by games such as Jet Set Radio and Tony Hawk. You can do different tricks, like ollies and kick flips, and collect spray cans which will allow you to graffiti tags on walls. They will be both a Mission Mode and a Free Skate mode, featuring 3 maps and 3 characters.

RADAR ADVENTURE
Radar Adventure is a 4 way scrolling platformer featuring my character Radar- he's kinda like a mix between Sonic the hedgehog, Samus and a poorly placed bucket of yellow paint. The game will feature 3 planets, each with 3 levels. It's a pretty standard platformer- though it does have shooting and light puzzle elements.

..and that's all really. Well, I mean, I have more I'm working on, but they won't be out a for a while.

See you guys later,
-Jack

Upcoming Games


Posted by JackAstral - March 21st, 2012


So I started working on a new flash game a couple days ago. It's a retro-inspired game in which you have to click crazyily to ry to build up power. The more power that's built up, the higher it will fly.

After launch, you then use the arrow keys to pick up coins for bonus points.

More soon,

My next game


Posted by JackAstral - January 9th, 2012


For the first time in about 3 years, I'm fresh out of ideas.

Normally, I have some crazy and very indie game ideas, but recently for the past month I've only been able to think of ideas that have pretty much been done before.

Help me.
Anyone? :P

Hey guys. My next New Grounds submission is called "I Wuv Coins." It's a game where you fly around in a jet pack trying to collect as many coins as you can before time's up, while avoiding nasty enemies bombs that will lower your score.

The game's quite simple, but it does feature a few cool things such as a 2 player versus mode, and 8 unlock able achievements.

You can check out a screenshot below.
