Play My Game! Rubber Duck Zerocraft sees the light of day

   0

Hello Destructoid, it feels like we haven't hung out in forever. You look well. Have you lost weight?

Part of the reason I haven't been musing out like a bandit on the c-blogs lately is that I've been tinkering with the idea of maybe designing and making my own games for the past few months. I don't actually have much to show for it, except this game right here!

Rubber Duck Zerocraft, First Version for Other People!

Fair Warning: It *should* be just as easy as unzipping the .exe and running the .exe. It shouldn't cause any problems. If it does, I'm sorry: I've no idea where to even begin troubleshooting it, and honestly, it may not be worth the effort to. You probably have much better games to get running on PC than this prototype.

I highly recommend playing this with a controller. Grab JoyToKey (its free) and give yourself a button for Shift and a button for Space.



There isn't too much to it, really. I wanted to get a good grip on how GameMaker works, so I more or less built this game out of the tutorial for 2D shmups on the GameMaker Tutorial page. I mainly wanted to try creating a shmup without projectile attacks. The focus is on defense and avoidance. My main concession is that I can't do art especially well. If you pretend, in that regard, that I am 5 years old, this may be acceptable. I'll eventually pick up the full version of GameMaker and add some sweet particle effects, but for now, that's what's up.

It doesn't necessarily need more priming than that, so I'd love for you to give it a shot and give me your opinions on it Any of it. I want to call my self effectively done with this incarnation of the game, so any feedback will help me improve my gamecraft and possibly make a better, more involved version 2/ sequel in the future. I've got a few other neat ideas I want to scratch out, which I hope to produce much more efficiently than this one!

Have fun and let me know what you think!

Players can elect to summon "cartoony" versions of bats, bombs, guns, and flamethrowers. These types of items can be used to destroy objects or even other summoned items (e.g., a club can be used to hit an animal; steak can be attached to a baby to attract lions; rockets can be lobbed at a man).

"Right after getting back to Japan, [Miyamoto] suddenly said: "You know we're including golf now." Apparently he'd stated in an interview that this time round golf shots would be determined by the backswing, even though at that time a golf game didn't exist in any shape or form!"
