I have been working on this game with a friend (JuDePom (or “AppleJuice”)) for about 2-3 weeks (10hours/day), here is the result:
Two players: a Policeman and a Thief. The thief is trying to escape, if he goes out of the camera he wins, otherwise if the Policeman catches him he looses. The Thief starts with 2000$ and is progressively loosing dollars, the objective is to keep the more money possible ! (like a timer)
You can use a keyboard (z,s,q,d (or w,a,s,d) + f and arrow keys) or/and controllers (Xbox 360 works great!).
A player gains speed when he is running on the ground. When he hits the ground he looses speed. He can regain speed after a fall by rolling (~ to amortize). He can perform wall-jumps in the opposite direction of the wall (so he can climb by doing some sorts of “Z” motions).
It’s easy to connect, you just have to enter a name and press ENTER!
It is a “free run” mode; no objective you can run with other players (races are funny ;)). Use the chat to comunicate. You can even do human pyramid: (note: it’s an older version of the game)
The rush hours are (GMT+0): 9h00, 14h, 19h00 --> 21h00. (server is on for one week more)
By the way, if your are intersted in this project you can join us! We need artists (pixel art, animations) and developers.
Or if you want to do something serious we could help you.
We recrute : we want to meet people to extend the team and create something bigger!
Now we are back to work on OSXIA…
