Thanks MORTAL, and yes, the 2D artist who's joined the project is very skilled!



And I've now added Witch Blast to IndieDB, here:

Hi!
There are a lot more Witch Blast players, as I can see in the scores database.
The reason is that the game has been featured last weekend on GameJolt, it gives it a lot of visibility.


Witch Blast on GameJolt: http://gamejolt.com/games/witch-blast/95627

We are working on a "feedback" patch to fix the bugs of the new version and to improve gameplay.
It will probably include an experimental multiplayer mode (à la BoI: a player controls a fairy with the gamepad). It's a GitHub contribution from a developer.


Mac OSX build (with online scoring) available on GitHub: https://github.com/Cirrus-Minor/witchblast/releases/tag/v0.7

Today, a short gameplay video with:
  • the 2 players mode: the second player can control a fairy with the joypad. The fairy has no hitbox yet, starts with a weak standard attack, and evolves at the end of each level (she can gain power, speed, an elemental attack, double-shot, etc...),
  • the score in game: because Witch Blast becomes more and more a scoring game - with the online hall of fame - players have suggested to add the score in the game UI - like a "normal" game :P - and they want to understand where the points come - in the video, we can see how much finding a secret room or completing the first level without losing a single HP do.

That will be in the next patch.
There will be some new / updated graphics too, and the 2D artist is working on the UI right now (for the score, and more...), and of course bug-fixes and improvements.

Really awesome work. It's one of those ultra-active SFML projects, love it. :)

Thanks Tank!
I've looked again at my first message here, and I can say I've never thought this project would go so far...
And I'm glad Witch Blast has become, for some people, an example of what we can do with SFML.

Oh, and I've done a short video about the evolution of the game, one week ago:

How did you do save/load games? Can you go into detail? Did you use serialization from boost library? I am very curious to hear your explanation.. I love the game, very nice.

It's open source, so you can view it yourself: https://github.com/Cirrus-Minor/witchblast/blob/master/src/WitchBlastGame.cpp#L6165

Cirrus Minor, you haven't made any changes to the dev branch in a month! Are you giving up on Witch Blast? :(

Hi everybody!

I had to make a "pause" in my projects but now, I will try to go on with Witch Blast.
I'd be really glad to have a v1 release some day.

I don't use serialisation, I'm saving information about the current state of the game and the player (which level, how many gold coins, HP, etc...), the map of the level, and each room (room type, tilemap, items, blood particles, etc...
And as Ruck said, you can look at the code ;)
