All the King's Men
« on: November 13, 2013, 01:20:17 am »
Hey!  I've been using SFML dotnet for a few months now building a little framework thing (http://otter2d.com) and this past weekend I did a game jam to test it out, and it turned out pretty well!

All the King's Men
Download for Windows: http://kpulv.com/downloads/KingsMenWindows.zip
My blog post where you can find more info: http://kpulv.com/210/All_the_King_s_Men/

The idea of the game is that you're trying to protect the King using the guards that are stationed on the path.  I recommend using an xbox360 controller or a similar PC controller, but keyboard works too.

The guards can also go out and find treasure boxes full of amazing loot and bring it back to the King, and if the King does make it to the end of his journey then you'll be scored based off how much treasure the King ended up with.

Here's some screenshots:







Thanks for checking it out! ;D

It is fun!
But somehow i fail each time because i want the tresure and the king is left unguarded :P.
Somehow making the tresures boost you and be worth sometimes sacrificing a hit to the king would inprove the tactic part of it.
Simple and good.

Haha the treasure is indeed tempting ;D  I could add maybe hearts in some treasure chests that could heal the King by 1 HP.

Thanks for the feedback!

Not had a chance to play yet (I'm at work) - but the graphics look really nice. I also like the artwork on your site, is it all your own?

Really fun game!
 
Nicely done, love all those "small" effects. e.g. Music effects, text effects...

The tresures are too juicy, can't resist the bait  ;D

For me, it crashes and I don't get to play. After I choose peasant as the difficulty the screen stays black :D

Well that stinks, what are your system specs?  Sounds likes crashing during the level generation for some reason.

You could try this:
At the title screen hit ~ to open the console and type graphicdetail 0 and push enter.  Hit ~ again to close the console, then try to play the game and see if it still crashes.

I had the same experience, it allways hangs after dificulty select, you just have to wait ~2  minutes and can go on :D You should probably check this out, cause i got a high end system, i am not sure if it would even work with lower requirements D:

Hm, interesting!  For some reason it's chugging on the level generation for you then.  What're the specs on the computer you're running it on?

Works fine for me, mid-end laptop. Great concept and it definitely feels kpulvery to me! :)

The end says "RIP in peace" btw. Not sure if that was intentional. ;)
