Three hours have gone and my teeth really hurt. The game idea is set-ish now, wondering whether to do two games in 48hrs “The Cell” has you a prisoner trying to escape each cell. It’s got a sokoban mechanic in that you can push things around on to switches to open the door. The key mechanic however is that you’re a mutant and with your power you can create duplicates of yourself that move as you do round the cell. To duplicate yourself you need power. If you go close to a guard you’ll wake him (and lose), however your ghostly duplicates can walk right next to him without a sound. Seems like enough mechanics to make a game, no?
Enough words… graphics.. here’s the logo at the start:
And a screenshot of the first complete-able level (though it only uses box pushing). Finally got the levels loading from files so that’ll be a help as I add more features.
Decided to change the wall graphics a bit to make it feel more like you were closed in. I’d be interested to know what people think of the idea, the scale, etc – I’m starting to get a bit wobbly on the idea and risk turning round and starting something else (probably death for LD48?)
