Estimated release date?
« on: February 16, 2010, 00:10:22 »
Probably too early to tell, but how long should this take, Nifflas? I'm really interested in another game with a level editor. :awsum:
A God, a Messiah, an Angel, a King, a Prince, and an All Terrain Vehicle.

Yeah, and what will be the main character? Knytt? Ball? Juni? Saira?

I'd like to tell it, but I rather wait until I can be sure about when I'll be done.

Fully understood. Really looking forward to this, niff!
I'm not dead. Not entirely. And yes, I'm embarrassed by most of the posts I made here.

It won't be Juni, she's too nice and harmless. To me, this game is a break I need from my seriousness and deeper meaning, so it has to be a character who have a personality that lets him/her run around and e.g. throw bombs at random creatures and enemies.

Any ideas?

What? A Niffgame where you harm creatures?
Ooh, you just HAVE to pick Das Magdenburska Deathray Pansarcrawler as the main character! :D

Make the main character a chef.

A ninja chef.



Wait, no.  A robot chef.

I second  this idea! And a violent Niff game sure is a novelty! I wonder what it will be like..

I wouldn't call it violent in that sense though. The game is very harmless.

Basically, Saira was a very a very ambitious project just like Night Game and Knytt Stories was. Even my smaller projects like Knytt meant a lot to me. However, having just finished my largest and ambitious game to this date, I by some reason I feel like I have to do something small, silly, funny nonsense that doesn't really mean anything. Note that I'm not saying it's a bad game, I'm really happy with this game too and right now it really is the best sort of project I could dig into. The gameplay mechanics are really neat, and unlike Knytt Stories, every object interact with each other in a different way, which means that quite complex puzzles can be accomplished with just a few objects. This should be perfect for level editing!

Of course I'll return to more ambitious and meaningful games again, I just need a break right now!

I support minmay's chef idea.


When something smells, it's usually my monitor.

What about a customizeable character? Or multiple ones? Maybe the robot/ninja chef is the main character, but after beating the game once you unlock Das Magdenburska... or something.
But since I'm a programmer myself I understand that it would take extra time, and probably not worth implementing.
