[challenge/normal/medium]Shipwrecked Full Version
« on: May 05, 2010, 19:41:39 »
As the title suggests, our heroine finds herself shipwrecked on a tropical island. You can follow Juni through her day to day struggle to survive, be rescued, and solve the mystery behind the disaster that cast her away.

The game plays in episodes much like Farik's Harvest. I was originally going for an environmental level, but I decided there were too many objectives for the environment label. So, I added some tricky jumps and monsters. The game is normal difficulty, but the 2 hidden bonus endings are almost very hard.

Features Include:
All custom tilesets
All custom music (I'm mostly just using ambiance though)
Mostly custom ambiance
Animated custom objects (e.g. In screen shots below; Juni, crab, and fire are animated.)
In game cutscenes including animations
An intriguing story line
3 endings (2 are hidden and very hard difficulty)

I'm rating this PG for mild language and cartoon violence.

This was made for a forum competition. It was originally released in beta form to meet the competition deadline. If you played the beta and liked it, then you should definitely play this. There are small to large changes throughout the game. The biggest changes are the addition 2 bonus endings and a fully realized story. Unfortunately it still has the same lame cutscene drawings, because I don't like making them. However, there are plenty of new drawings intentionally made to look as bad as the old ones. :) If you've never played this level in any form, ignore what I just said. Everything is awesome.

I was so intrigued and captivated by the level that I did not look for voids, sges or other errors.

In my opinion this level is, by far, the best combination of story and gameplay I've ever played. Well, I won't be so brazen to put it above Nifflas but...

Other levels have had equal or maybe even better story line quality but the gameplay was not as interesting, fun or possibly too difficult.

Some levels have had equal quality in gameplay or better as far as difficulty or perhaps they were more challenging.

This one though, just seems to have the right mix of everything.

Excellent. A+ for you.

Wow, thank you lamarblake! That's quite a compliment. My goal is to someday make a level that does surpass those of Nifflas. Probably not possible since his levels define the term 'Knytt-like'.

@bulbapuck: I never tried that. Thanks for catching it so quickly. It's transparent to the player, but there happen to be 6 different ways to leave that room. It was a simple copy/paste error. I copied the code, but I didn't change the screen address.

O_O  Wow, dude.  That's a tough level to top, even outside of the Compo.  I'm still trying to figure out how you did some of that.

Found a bug, BTW.

Hmmm... After seeing the screenshots and reading all these comments, I really don't know if I should wait a bit more for the final release or dive in right now. There might be bugs, but... it's sooo tempting...

Gah! Can't decide!!  X-P
Some KS levels by me:

Alright, I've finally found some time to finish playing.

Absolutly stunning level man! The cutscenes were insane, and the entire level was absolutely beautiful C)p Can't wait for the full version to come out.

I'm going to study how you made this level to try and make levels like these myself C)

@peppyhare4000: how? I tried for quite some time to do it, but failed... Did you jump over the spider twice and then chase him back?

@ Dataflashabot: Yes. Those are the strong words I was referring to. Maybe I should have said, "mild language."

@ Grimwit: I put the warp code for left and right instead of left and down. Woops.

@PeppyHare4000: When I made that screen I thought, "If anyone manages to get past this I'll be impressed." Well, I'm impressed. What bulbapuck describes is an effective method at fooling the spider. I'll have to add 'something' there.

@bulbapuck: I did make an effort to cite my code in the world.ini this time. I didn't explain why I did things but I did mark which code goes with which section of the game as I'm sure you're already aware. One of the main tricks I use is to set a flag representing multiple achievements. Hypothetically, you find Item-2, then Flag-2 is turned on and the game checks for Flag-1. If Flag-1 is true then Flag-3 is turned on as well. The same thing happens at Item-1. Later, if I want to know which items you have I check Flag-3, then Flag-2, and then Flag-1. I'll list what all the flags represent for you in the world.ini next update.
