[Environmental] The Hermit [3/20/12: DEMO OUT NOW!]
« on: June 28, 2010, 10:20:44 »
I just started working on this. I'm planning to make it pretty big (my goal is 200/300 400/500) and it's going to be very nonlinear, similar in gameplay to Nifflas's A Strange Dream (possibly my favorite level in any videogame, ever :D), with powerups in multiple locations and lots of exploring. It's actually my second level; my first was heavily inspired by Momruoy's Infestation, but I didn't like how it was turning out (too linear) so I kind of got bored with it after seventy-something rooms. :\ I may finish that later.

Anyway, here's some screens.





It's currently at seven rooms sixty rooms one hundred and forty rooms two hundred and twenty-two rooms... oh boy.

And as of 3/20/12, there is a playable demo! It includes two seperate paths to obtain the first couple of powerups, and two "endings". Areas you aren't allowed to see are walled off (charming, I know), though nothing is stopping you from opening it up in the editor and taking a peek around besides your (hopefully existent) disinclination towards spoiling things for yourself! This I recommend not doing.

You can check out that demo here. Keep in mind that basically everything is designed to be revisited with powerups that you cannot yet obtain, and I'm building this level entirely out of order, so what you see here is only a fraction of what's been finished...

Oh, and the music in there right now is all placeholder stuff. I'm gonna make some of my own to replace it at a later date.

How do you do that spoiler thing?

One of what will most likely be a few locations where you can find the run powerup:

Thanks (for both the compliment and the help :P)!

I updated this room with some bubbles in the water. Not much of an update but it looks a lot better in-game in my opinion.

Spoiler: IT WORKS MUAHAHA (click to show/hide)

Gradients don't match up but everything else does.

OMG. This. Is. Awesome.

Also, you're giving me a run for my money in the "overdoing it with the screenshots" department. :D

Spoiler: Cleaning Robot! (click to show/hide)

Also this



:shocked:

EDIT: Does anyone know a good tileset for an ocean floor or something? I'm making a network of underwater tubes like in The Machine, but I don't want to use the Tileset 6 floors or it would just be an exact clone of Nifflas' level.

EDIT EDIT: I don't like doubleposting so I'll just edit this.

MUST... STOP... POSTING IMAGES...

Wow, this sure looks BUSY for the first/second level. Can't wait for the release. Also, yes, you might want to stop posting images  :D
