Took the opportunity to register here to enter this sweet contest. So, hello everyone! :smile:

My game entry is called Igor Almighty, and is a heavily Castlevania-inspired platformer, which will be designed to appear like an actual NES-game.

Updates:
Content Hidden


Story: Betrayed by his once loyal henchman Igor and left for dead, Dr. Frankenstein must make his way back to reclaim his castle, take revenge for the brutal murder of his daughter and end the evil masterplan of Igor once and for all.

Screens:

Features:

    - horror theme :boo:
    - 8bit retro style graphics
    - hardcore platformer action
    - multiple weapons
    - boss fights

I think that might be all I have to say for now. Here's hoping I'll get this baby off the ground and bring some joy to those who still cherish a bit of retro gaming. Cheers! :lol:

Well, I think we might have a top contestant here. How far ahead is your game? What systems are currently working?

More importantly, did you make ALL those graphics yourself?

Mostly I have finished the animation system and sprites for the player character, for the most part at least. Currently I'm mainly working on the hud, inventory and general level design. Need to cut down what is planned on paper by at least 50% to begin with, or else I'm not likely to make the deadline. But it's really a big mess of working on everything a little right now tbh.

Will be adding little progress updates to the original post soon.

Yes, all the graphics used in this game are original and created by myself. :grin:

Thanks for the kind words everyone!
Started updating the first post now with my progress, btw.

Also it seems like Eventing_Guy needs to learn how to take a compliment. :biggrin:

Well, instead of the game offering multiple paths you can explore, it's gonna be a rather linear affair, apart from a tiny bit of backtracking which will probably still be involved. It's just necessary to keep the game smaller and get it done in this small timeframe. But that's about the biggest cut I'm making.

This is gorgeous; I'm itching to see an update on it. Also don't forget to give me a userbar so I can add it to my sig :heart:
(See the "HYPE! ..." thread, linked at the top of this page.)

Congratulations. This looks very promising. How fare are you from getting finished? Really,
because I can't wait to play this game.

Thank you! Finishing this before the deadline will be a tough cookie indeed. There's still so much to do, I'm trying to stay optimistic. Wish me luck. :cheers:

I still can't get over how awesome the visuals are. You're pretty talented with pixels, PR!

My eyesight isn't so great that I can see the teeny sprites super well, however ... If I zoom in using my browser's zoom function, will it still play and look normal? I wouldn't want to screw up the experience. I only ask because I can't test it for myself without a demo up, haha.

Thanks Venetia! And don't you worry, the actual window resolution is double the size of those screens, so it should play okay even on bigger resolutions and go easier on everyone's eyesight, hehe.

Sorry to tell you guys that I won't be entering the contest after all. Igor Almighty just was the wrong project to do within the limitations of the contest. I do definitely require more than 100 events to finish the game in a proper way. Also more time won't hurt either, hehe.

You can still keep an eye out for Igor Almighty to be released in April (most likely). :wink:

So yeah, thank you to HBgames. The contest was a good reason to get started on a project again. And best of luck to all entrants. I've seen some very nice projects cooking here, keep it up!

Oh, I'm so bummed!!!!
Have a demo to whet our appetites atleast?
You know the game doesn't have to be terribly long to enter!

If you're really sure you don't want to enter this into the contest, I can move this thread to Projects in Development for you. If you would prefer.
