Welcome to /agdg/, home away from home.

News

After a 4 month exodus and hunkering down in various bunkers, we're finally home. We've all been hard at work or ideaguying on our various projects, new ones have been spawned as well. Time to update your threads and just like make game.

Two demo days took place during that time, the presented demos will be posted in their dedicated thread. Perhaps you missed them? Here's a chance to play what fellow anons were up to.

Please add/update your games to the wiki http://8agdg.wikidot.com/ and make the best use of the tutorials and other resources available there. Some devs have disappeared without a trace and the active/dead project list needs attention.

Shout outs to all the bunkers that we had going, they are still places worth posting progress on, especially the agdg board on anoncafe

https://anon.cafe/agdg/ https://vch.moe/v/res/135927.html https://endchan.net/v/res/11733.html https://julay.world/v/res/4470.html https://smuglo.li/vg/res/129.html ...and the chen2 thread that got purged

Thank you for your service!

Also shout outs to the official unofficial /agdg/ Disagreement server at https://discord.gg/k2e67JB.

The rules

Please discuss all aspects of game development here.

Make a thread for the game you are working, it will be lovely to follow your stuff. Shining examples of that are Fables of Laetus bros >>30488. If you want to develop your game concepts or have small tech questions, go to the designPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Did more work on improving the map editor, it can now export as .obj files, which for example allows it to be imported into the unity engine. Useful for making the rough geometry of the level in unity, and then doing the actual detailing of it in probuilder. Saves a lot of time compared to actually working in probuilder, not that I would ever subject myself to that.

The materials system is being upgraded, it's possible to have sphere mapping, different texture filters, etc. now. Next step is to fix the map importing process, so that I can render levels with these new materials, which should be pretty nice. I expect to have shiny env-mapped windows and metallic surfaces, parralax scrolling cloud layers on my skies, etc. Then I can work on integrating entities into the engine, so the levels can be populated by models. A lot of work to do...

OFFICIAL DEMO DAY THREAD ~ /v/ + /agdg/

>What is demo day?

A seasonal community event in which your fellow nodev anons show off their vidya, and for you anons to do what you do best.

>That is?

Play our vidya, and tell us how we can improve, show us the untapped potential you see, tell us how much our game sucks (or doesn't, after you've played it of course), and why it does or doesn't suck.

Everyday Life: Edengrall 2/2 Demo

If you already played the previous demo (released in late december) this isn't too different, we spent this month updating Unity, cleaning the project and optimizing.

There is a new girl, Anna the Oni, she is a lovely lady who the player will be able to marry.

We are also expanding the grass system to allow things like flower fields and crop fields.

We would like to apply for the Demoday Fund

Peripeteia

A cyberpunk stealth shooter with PS1-inspired graphics and a cute protagonist.

https://shodanon.itch.io/peripetaia/download/vFE8z_vVbUuMwSX8DScOCqYVuMjJfQOGlb6QX1rb

Think Deus Ex mixed with Splinter Cell. Avoid confrontation until you find a gun, hack computers and panels by mashing your keyboard to discover the password. Switch between first person and third person view by scrolling your mousewheel. Watch your light meter and shimmy on ledges to stay out of the patrolling enemies' sight. Hold F to hide bodies.

Made in around 2 weeks by a group of anons, including members of Die Totenmaske team and Beelzebox devs. We hope you enjoy the demo.

==Uncommon Time Retuned== (Working title)

Uncommon Time Retuned (help me think of a better name please), is a near-total-conversion of FeralPheonix's game, Uncommon Time. 99% of tumblrshit has been removed- including the faggotry/tumblrshit of two of the game's playable characters. This game serves as a "to the side" alternative universe of the original game. Uncommon Time sought to challenge classic hero's story tropes, Retuned seeks to reincorporate them, thus more main characters for the story have been added.

Changes from last demo day.

-- Currently up to Bel Canto, rewrite progress as of this build stops after you get instruments.

-- Truncated dialogue in some parts, mostly arpeggio pass.

-- Added a wandering merchant in dungeons where you can't return to town.

-- Rework of damage formulas across most of the board to make it more uniform and less clunky.

-- Switched from Yanfly's Free-Turn-Battle back to Vanilla, shit was way too clunky for what I needed.

Known flaws, bugs & other shit

-- Just started implementing seperate-window nametags, progress is inconsistent. I will take effort to iron this shit out in the meantime, as 90% of the offending dialogue is strictly in act one.

-- Arena flaws. I need to eventually get a script that allows me to disable the use of items in glissando arena's battle sections, furthermore, some battles have bloated stats.

-- Difficulty is all over the place. This is the challenge working with pre-made content.

-- Healing is broken. Healing is supposed to use part of the target's current missing HP and factor in stats from the healer and the patient, but it's just grossly overpowered somehow.

-- Placeholders galore, the new characters are temporarily using stock stuff and recolors of old characters, plenty of temporary music from other vidya. Some of the party (most notably Mezzo) do not have a good range of faces for certain lines in the game. When Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Might as well point out because I don't feel like redoing another build package.

Uncommon time retuned has a debug map set as its opening scene. To start the game as intended, do the following:

-- after starting a new game, talk to the old man and go to the warp room.

-- interact with the bridge concealed in the upper left corner of the warp room.

We're preparing to launch Kickstarter soon after 2+ years of development. Hoping to use the fund to make the contents that we envision and release the game in a year, since we're deving with little to almost no fund.

Hi everyone. I wanna share a platforming game I'm working on with a friend. Most people on ?v/ here know me as GigaDev, the GigaMaidens guy.

Recently I got back together with an old friend of mine in the UK and we began work on a platformer starring a cute catgirl named Kasha. I'm doing the spritework and he's doing the coding.

I have a lot of hopes and desires with this game. I want to make it a big adventure at least on the same scope as Super Mario World.

Kasha's adventure is about her looking for her mommy. But since she thinks she's the cutest girl in the world, that must mean her mommy is the prettiest woman in the world. So she imprints on any pretty lady she meets as her mommy.

Essentially she travels the world on her own except for her caretaker Milchi who is secretly following her around, meeting mommies and adding them to her mamadex in her mama journal.

She has a variety of base abilities, including rolling, punching, and wall-climbing. But the real fun stuff in her game comes from her tail. Kasha has a magical, cartoony shapeshifting tail (not currently sprited) that can turn into a variety of different things depending on milkshakes that she can drink.

A few of the planned tail transformations and their respective milkshake flavors include:

Apple: Jackhammer

Mint: Spear

Banana: Grapple Arm

Cherry: Bomb

Watermelon: Minigun

Licorice: Coil Spring

Pineapple: Bazooka

Cola: Unicycle

Among other things. Each milkshake gives her new abilities that she can then use to find new paths and secrets in levels, which then lead her to new areas on the world map where she can find new mamas. Finding all the mamas is a 100% completion objective, but there is also the main story where a demon uprising is happening and for some reason they're possessing animals and coming after Kasha specifically.

I did some experiments with making it smaller but sadly I'm not able to make it look as good as I want, and also it would necessitate redoing all the sprites I've already done.

Still will consider it if it turns out to be a problem.

There are going to be larger characters in the game though, so I'm not entirely sure what I should do at this time.

I tried rescaling the sprites in aseprite but it has a destructive scaler and it didn't do a good job.

There's three character sizes: a child (Kasha herself), an adult, and an amazon (Kasha's parental figure, Milchi). These are how big their sprite sizes are.

Am I the only one who finds videos/pictures of a game engine just starting out comfy as fuck? Or just examples of how to do stuff floating in space. Something about them motivates me to continue on my game.

Hell even things like janky-ass ports of games onto mobile platforms have a similar charm.

I just really like 90s game engines in general. Like, the first engines which had proper 3d and polys, but didn't have all the modern stuff like shaders, bump mapping, etc. Games had to compensate for the plain appearance by just being fun to play. All the graphical improvements apart from maybe lighting and shadows are just eyecandy which don't really improve the gameplay. I got nothing against the fancy new shit if it's available, but I wish they prioritized the gameplay a bit more.

Maybe I'm a huge autist or something but in older games also it's easier for me to mentally process what's going on. I play a modern game like Shogun 2 and there's fucking a million different shaders and animations playing at once. Fucks with my head.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_echolocation

I don't mean stuff like areas lighting up when you throw an object against a wall, but somehow managing to replicate the feeling that humans with echolocation actually experience, is it feasible or is it impossible for non blind people?

Also some interesting blog on how echolocation works, it's a fiction blog mostly http://planetfuraha.blogspot.com/2012/07/echolocation-sound-choice.html?m=1

Not an actual dev by the way, thought this board might be a nice place for discussion.

Short answer: yes it can.

I think it's pretty interesting idea - to make a game smh like daredevil. That a guy would lose its eyesight and have to learn to see with echolocation and tactile senses. And to the end of the have he become superhuman. It would be interesting for dude to be able to see through car and identify engine, but unable to see through glass because the room is soundproof.

But to actually implement it you need advanced 3d knowledge. And I barely can make some point and clicks with Godot.

P.S.: O.P. is ideaguy.

Have the character send out regular clicks to see where they're going, with the option of the player hold a button to make the clicks faster if they need more accuracy or a more solid image of a passageway

also during combat/risky places it speeds up but during attacks/dodges the clicks are paused for that brief moment due to the body focusing on other actions so you have to carefully time that tradeoff of attack but loss of sight briefly

Diluvion had a system that visually could be copied for that echolocation effect

>is it impossible for non blind people?

Yes.

The reason is that non-blind people literally have not formed the neural connections necessary for echolocation to be used. And the only way to form those connections is to force yourself to navigate by sound alone, which forces your brain to make those connections to better enhance your auditory senses to compensate for lack of sight.

The only way I can think of is to actually find someone who used to be blind, who has also developed a usable form of echolocation and interview them directly and ask of their ability to echolocate has diminished after being able to see.

I am an artist; as my skills improve slowly-but-surely my attention turns towards game development. I would like to enlist a programmer to help make a simple game project a reality but there's a few caveats.

how much to pay/how often

I don't buy this "I'll pay you when/if my idea pans out" stuff that seldom works out for anyone but the idea guy, at least not as a defining feature of someone's working relationship to my project or heaven forbid future projects. I've saved up some money over the years and I'm willing to pay as much as I can for good work on a regular or "work-for-hire" basis, but admittedly I'm a man of limited means and what's taken me a lifetime to save wouldn't amount to much to a professional programmer.

How can I expect loyalty from a stranger when I couldn't offer them what they'd typically deserve? I'd appreciate any programmers to chime in on this. In lieu of substantial payment up front, what do you expect in return following the project's completion?

how to prevent myself from getting robbed

How do I protect myself from outright fraud? I could pay someone however much and find out only after it's well too late that he's written thousands of lines of junk code (if any at all) and made off with a good chunk of my savings for his trouble.

How do I enforce transparency? Is there any way to quickly check code to see that it matches how it's commented without having experience as-such, myself? I feel like programmers in a similar position have a big advantage here. Anyone can look at a picture and tell that something's not right. While the skills to make aesthetic and appealing artwork takes years to master-same as programming-aesthetics are a universal language and ugliness or wrongness in that regard is readily apparent to the layman. Conversely it takes far more experience to wade into a morass of esoteric code-language and find something amiss, and I fear without being able to do that I would potentially be risking losing everything to a disingenuous code monkey that may never have even known whaPost too long.

Thanks for the videos, I'm definitely going to want to check those out. Not only for the content itself but they remind me of the fact that there's a huge legitimate indie game and media community out there and that it'd probably pay to get involved with them to some degree from the beginning.

As far as a demo goes, I don't think that's in the cards yet. I don't have the money to pay for a programmer (part of what the campaign is meant to address) and I'm far too busy working on animations and trying to figure that whole process out. I could have several proposed in-game animations and pieces of splash art ready to give people an idea of what to expect and what their money is helping work towards though and I believe that will be sufficient.

I'm a big fan of physical media as rewards and would like to frame my Patreon as a sort of slow-rolling kickstarter. Do you know of any good companies offhand that make limited run games, music CDs, print books etc.? Part of the dream is reliving that feeling of opening the box and seeing that instruction manual with all of the cool character art and story blurbs and having something I made on my shelf. Is it possible or even desirable to contact a mainstream publisher about this sort of thing? Where do I go or who do I talk to to get a real game made?

In any case, I would like to be able to keep close track of who's given what and I'm not sure how that's done. I've heard a lot of horror stories of hit-and-run patrons who "donate" in whatever amount, take all the content available to them and bail before they actually have to pay (well, not so much a horror story but one of a minor inconvenience, I guess). Say I send out art books or something like that to Patrons who've given $100 or more over time (after taxes and Patreon's fee that'd be about $70 in my pocket I believe). I imagine printing a book is hugely expensive (wouldn't be surprised if it cost at least $20 for an art book with 50 pages or so and that's not including at least $5 for shipping) and the last thing I want to do is give something like that away to a mooch that looks like he's been supporting me for months but reallyPost too long.

I don't think it's going to happen, I'm pretty much all-or-nothing "in" at this point. The lowest I could be brought is down to the level of some kid fresh out of college financially so I'm not worried about things not working out too much. Being a loser is my comfort zone, I want to make a genuinely good game and maybe make some money I can help my family and friends with but I'm trying to keep my expectations realistic-especially with how slow my artistic progress has been.

pay me and I'll make your game

On a more serious note, though: if you want to make a game as a one-man-army, you just gotta calculate how long you can last off your savings and design a game that you can realistically create in that timeframe. As with any business, there's no guarantee you're going to make your investment back.

If you aren't at least somewhat competent at art, programming, sound design, writing and all the other elements required for gamedev, you can still do the proper agdg route of keeping it your hobby, creating smaller projects to git gud, keep making savings and making a proper game when you're confident of your skills.

You only need to be competent in a few of those to make a sellable game. Most gamedevs suck at absolutely all of it though which is part of why they cry about things like the indiepocalypse or whatever, because their games suck from every angle.

Still a ton of work left to go, including the majority of content. There are no dungeons yet, and tech only spans from the stone age to tin (no copper/bronze/iron yet).

What are some advanced books on writing a C++ game engine?

I'm looking for something like gameprogrammingpatterns dot com that actually walks you through making a full engine, the "right" way with best practices.

Not necessarily a 3D engine or with heavy physics, I'm mostly interested in the way it's structured, how it handles memory, best practices, scripting etc.

Bonus points if it uses C++11 or higher.

if you like the idea of making a game engine sure go for it, you'll learn a lot and if you manage something it will feel really rewarding.

Seems like you already know Casey. Most of the things you see in that stream is how actual engine programming looks like, so there's that. C is simply a better tool than modern c++ because it lets you manipulate memory as you please.

Whatever you do please don't try to do low level programming in modern c++, it's just not what it was made for.

>apparently treating C++ like C#/Java is bad and using new/delete a lot is inefficient and dangerous

Like this anon says, only code an engine if you want to do it for fun. Coding your own engine is #1 cause of missing persons cases

You're best off learning general programming best practices. Not making problems unnecessarily localized is yet another lesson.
