The Possible Game
« on: April 14, 2016, 08:07:08 pm »
Hi!

I just want to share what i'm currently making with SFML, as a university project.
Here is a small video of the game, tell me what you think :):

edit: Also, i should mention that i'm using my own physics system for this game. That's what took most of the time to make.

edit2: I also haven't gotten around to making a bigger map since it's really tedious placing the boxes at good locations. I need to make a level editor i think.

Change the protagonist square into a little man and you can call the game "Mr XTC" !!! :D

Lol but seriously. It's hard to share thoughts on a game in such an early stage and with little background info on where you want to go with it.
Having said that, i think it's a great start and could become a challenging and fun game with some more complementing elements / challenges / variety in place.

i suggest you change the topic of this thread to "my awesome game", keep that mindset and keep us posted on your progress!!!

It looks good so far! You could cut all the work that goes into creating a level editor by just using a pre-existing one such as mapeditor.org, you'll only have to create a level loader. The physics and collision system looks solid and it already seems interesting. Carry on! :)

Thank you both for your comments and opinions.

bitano, i don't think you've played The impossible game? That's my inspiration for this game, and why i named it like this :), and it's very similar.

I wouldn't say the game is in a very early stage, depending on how much extra features i want, but the hardest part of the game is done. You could at this stage just make a longer level and call it a game, but i think i'll add some more fancy stuff.

Hyden, I will take a look at that map editor and see if it will work for my game, thanks.

Looks good! I'm familiar with the Impossible Game (although I've never played it), so I noticed the reference right away.

How are you making the map right now? Manually placing the boxes in code? Reading a file?

I'm manually creating them in the game constructor right now. I'm not using tiles or anything like that. A typical box creation would look something like this:
GameRectObject *box = new GameRectObject(PhysicsType::staticT, *_physicsSystem.timeToSimulate(), 3500, 500, 50, 50, Flag::fallsWhenTouched);
_physicsSystem.addItem(*box);

You're right!! i didn't. Just checked it. Indeed it's pretty close to finished then.

Not knowing the Impossible Game, i thought the squares were placeholders and it was more a display of mechanics where graphics still needed to be implemented.
Personally i would think a nice background or some subtle textures would spice it up, but that's more flavor (and personal taste).

Well done!

There's another game called Geometry Dash that is similar too (maybe same developer even?).
Anyway, good job! Yours looks fun too!

Yeah i know about that one, but that one is too crazy for me to make :P. If i was making geometry dash i wouldn't be near finished. Maybe sometime after my exams i'll add some animations and features so that it's more interesting.
