ANOTHER CHALLENGER APPROACHES!
I haven't really done a side thing coding wise in a while and I got it stuck in my head at some point that there hasn't been a Bomberman game out in a long while. Cloning games seems to be all the rage right now so I figured, why not throw one together? So I present to you, the beginnings of a super silly, probably unbalanced Bomberman game that I'll dub Bomberduder =D
Yea. What again. I'm bringing my laptop and some controllers to PAX East and so if I get this thing together by then on off time (mostly weekends I suppose) it might be some stupid fun to play with other duders. I'll also put it online somewhere for anyone interested to download but since I don't plan on adding any internet play, your enjoyment will be strictly based on whether or not you can get some people together to play it.
I'd like to throw in a bunch of random people and possibly give them stupid ass abilities that may break any semblance of balanced play. These abilities would have to be something that have limited use. Maybe it can be dependent on getting a certain number of kills or just a time based thing, haven't thought it through yet. An example of the type of game breaking things I plan on are things such as John Drake getting into a plane and being able to fly around the map or Dave Lang creating a zone around himself in which other player's controls get borked. Maybe Scoops casts fear which makes players run away from him? Hell, sky's the limit.
Duder, can I help?
Yes. Yes you can. I'll take anything you wanna give me including tiles, ideas, sprites, sounds, music. Whatever you got, I'll take it and try to find a place to cram it into this thing.
The format for the land based tiles are 64x64 pixels.
The characters will end up being 64 x 95.
The item icons are 48x48.
Very much looking for help in finding sound bytes of any and all people related to Giant Bomb saying stupid shit for when they either place bombs or get hit... or maybe pick up items. Who cares, just get me sound bytes =D
As for the characters themselves, I plan on taking the cheapest easiest route possible. Which is pretty much going to end up being cut outs of their actual heads. I may animate a body of some sort to plaster the heads on but also, maybe not. *shrug*
Yea duders, throw shit at me and we'll see what sticks =D
