Pixel Day WIP

2017-12-14 17:23:01 by KungFuSpaceBarbarian

I'm working on a thing for pixel day!

It's not a Crypt Shyfter game but it'll have a similar feel- interactive fantasy story with a few different pathways you can take. It's a super simple game I'm making in Bitsy. Bitsy is really cool but the functionality is limited. You move around by clicking the arrow keys (or swiping your finger on mobile) and you can bump into white sprites to talk to them.

Everything is told through text, but you get to walk around as a little pixel knight and explore the world. I've never made a game outside of Twine so it's been fun working on this.

There will still be a new Crypt Shyfter next month, this game will just be a fun little additonal thing to celebrate pixel day :)

Here are some screenshots!


Our noble hero has the most boring job in the world... he's stuck on guard duty with Sgt. Foreshadow and Lt. Kiss-Ass!


Gather loot, explore the castle, and find the princess. How cliche!


Oh no! Gigantic Spiders and Gerblins!

I actually have to thank @tinyworlds for inspiring me to do this. I played "A cozy winter walk" and thought the simple pixel adventure was awesome, so I immediately looked up Bitsy and got started on my own adventure. If you haven't played "winter walk" yet you can check it out here: https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/703237

And if you wanna make a game for pixel day but you don't know any programming you can make a game in Bitsy here: https://ledoux.itch.io/bitsy

It only took me a couple hours to figure out how to put together a game but now I'm cruising along with it :)

I do like goblins... in MTG and WoW, at least.

Less importantly, when will the next non-game episode of Crib Shitters be made?

KungFuSpaceBarbarian responds:

Sorry bud with net neutrality repealed that's gonna be part of the premium package. Ajit Pai says premium packages can't cost less than $24.69 a month. He owns us all now.

Aww, it's cool I unintentionally pointed you to Bitsy :)
Looking forward to your game, it looks like a fun experience so far :)

KungFuSpaceBarbarian responds:

Yes! I never heard of it before seeing your game but it's really neat :) I really enjoyed your adventure!

Hmmm... something new... looks pretty interesting.

KungFuSpaceBarbarian responds:

Haha it'll just be a one-off thing for pixel day. The main focus is still on Crypt Shyfter for next month ;)
