I've been busy with this project now for about two months and I think I could now release some alpha-screenshots. NOTE: The screenshots may look a bit monotonous but I'll add some animated tiles soon, like flower-tiles or something.

Tell me what you think of the screenshots or post if you want more info Smiley!

The screenshots are here: http://www25.brinkster.com/harsoftware/kulaqb.htm

Awaiting reply...

Looks nice. But why is everyone so intent on continuing with the tradition of using Screen 13(320x200 resolution)?

People use screen 13 because it *works* on everyone else's computer. People make games in 2d because there ain't a good 3d QB lib out there, and they think it's too hard.

If will be a top-view puzzler with action, so you can describe it as somekind of puzzle-action game.

The first world, where the screenshots are from is easy, there're no enemies or such, only spikes. The goal of the game is to gather all needed keys, take as much money as you want, and go to the exit. Without dying or exceeding the time limit that is!

Neo, with games of this type, it's all about *fun*, and not about looks.  

http://www.digger.org/index.html  

Is an all-time great game.  
Try running windig in full-screen mode with CGA graphics.  (ie use this ini file)
Code:
[Game]
Players=1
GauntletMode=False
Speed=270000
StartLevel=1
LevelFile=
GauntletTime=120

[Graphics]
FullScreen=True
Async=True
CGA=True
[Sound]
SoundOn=True
MusicOn=True
BufferSize=2048
Rate=22050
SoundVolume=100


The controls are:
Arrow keys
F1 to fire
F10 to quit
ESC selects 1 or 2 player mode
F7 toggle music
F9 toggle sound

This is a game with great gameplay...although it's not the prettiest thing around.  I first ran this game on my IBM PS/2 30 dual-floppy machine in circa 1987... I had several friends in High-school and college whose grades suffered because of this little game.

Yeah. I think that SVGA in QB is pretty stupid mainly 'cause the game will only work in your computer, most likely.

No, I am exagerating, but I fell close.

2D games should never die. I still enjoy them. Most 3D games doesn't have half the gameplay as the ol' 2D glories. You just hit CTRL and the character does everything by itself.

I use futlib alot because of the fact that you can run in 16bit mode. I make most of my sprites with Lightwave 7. The lowest render you can get is 16 bit. I tried to convert down from 64x64 16bit to 32x32 8bit using photoshop, but the sprites look like crap in screen 13. It is'nt worth the loss of asthetics to me. :Huh:

I enjoyed Chrono Trigger and BreathOf fire 2 more than Legend of Legaia.  :*)

2d Pixels look better than 3d polys in producing cartoonish stuff which I like very much.

I enjoy Anime's more than 3d rendered shows also because of this reason. :*)

2d Forever!!!!

2D GAMES DESING FOREVER!

I don't won't to be insultive here but I'm fed up with this 3D DICK SUCKING MEGALOMANIA elsewhere on the net. Sure I respect people making 3D games and hi-res games in QB but does that mean we have to trash 2D and low-res games we used to make and play just few months ago? Of course not! Let's keep this art alive! We can have and respect everything in our community. So if you like 3D so much make 3D games and don't undervalue our effort and contribution to the community Mr.TheBigBasicQ and all who think like you.

Yeah, I still play those old SNES RPGs (Secret Of Mana 1/2, Chrono Trigger, Tales of Phantasia, Illusion Of Time, Terranigma,...) and I still ENJOY them a lot, because they've got the SPECIAL THING
