Le Sunset Salto

Le Sunset Salto - screen.png

Dear everybody, I proudly present my new game. Three months in the making (waay too long for a game this short). Featuring lots of jumping / saltoing / swimming action, underwater creatures, "transparent" sprites and lush MIDI orchestration. I have been playing it over and over to get rid of bugs but probably dozens of them are just waiting to be discovered. Well, I do not care anymore, just wanted to share it at last.

You start by jumping off a cliff, and if you know what to do, soon you embark on an underwater adventure! Watch your oxygen! If you don't know what to do, there are hints and even a step-by-step walkthrough which honestly takes away all the fun, so use it only if you really have no idea what to do. There are two achievements to earn, and for completing each you gain access to a special prize! (of course you can gain it immediately by checking in the .gam file but you are too noble and honest to do that, aren't you).

Let me know what you think, I didn't have any beta-testers available except my wife who said it is pretty but nonsense. If you find any bugs I will be more than happy to fix them and repost a better version.

EDIT: Bugs removed! If you really want to know which bugs, highlight the following:Jumping from the rock to catch the mermaid is now only possible after the mermaid jumps. When caught by the octopus and unable to move, it switches to Game Over after 3 seconds. As for the duplicating chracter - sorry, for now I have no idea how to get rid of that. Chances are if it happens one time it won't the second.Big thanks to sergiocornaga for fishing out (badum tschhh) the bugs.

EDIT 2: For some strange reason there is one bug that does not appear on my computer, but it hapens when I play the same file downloaded from here. IF certain mermaids are causing you problems, that's what the "choose level" option is for. I honestly don't know what I can do about it, I mean it is THE SAME file...

I believe this is called a teaser? Well, I'm such a tease.

As you can see this one will be in colour. Also, multiple levels. I believe it is about 75% complete now. Hope to post the final version as soon as possible! Greetings to all.

Storm Is Coming

Storm Is Coming - screen.jpg

It took me much, much longer than it might seem, mainly because of my lack of experience with the program, but I can finally proudly present to you my first KNP game ever completed - Storm Is Coming. It is a somewhat artsy one screen platform game which should take you about 5 minutes to complete. If you know what to do...if not, there are hints available. I know there will be some mistakes and logical gaps, but what the hell. I think it's decent for a debut. It is black and white with home-made sprites, crappy animations and the soundtrack is me plinking away on a detuned piano. Yeah, sorry about that. Tell me what you think, I would like an experts' opinion on what I could work on in future projects. Greetings to all fellow locomotive engineers!
