Reboot Comp ( missed ) : Comet Killer 1940's Edition
« on: May 22, 2020, 06:59:13 AM »
With only two days left for the REBOOT competition and some free time I decided to have a bit of fun and create an old film style version of my 1st game comp entry from July 2017. I did hope to finish in time but the deadline hit and so development stopped even though a couple of hours more and it would have been finished.

The original Comet Killer was 3D @ 1920x1080 and three years later with the updates to GPU's it's now fully 2D @ 320x200 :P ( looks higher as the graphics scale to native resolution )

I will finish it off though and I have all the graphics for the title screen and other bits + sound effects done. I've still to add the shields to the ship and improve the collision boundaries but none of that is long to do.

Anyway, here's a quick video of "Comet Killer 1940's Edition" - The video judders a little from time to time but that may be YouTube processing or something.

Mac mini ( 2018 / 2020 ), 3 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i5, 16 GB 2667 MHz DDR4, 1TB NVMe, eGPU Radeon Pro 580 8 GB, LG Ultragear 27GL83A-B 27 Inch
Commodore VIC-20, 1.1Mhz MOS 6502 CPU, 5KB RAM, VIC ( 6560 ) GPU

Until the next time...

Looks good for that short amount of dev and asset time.

Here's a video of my Reboot Game (also missed) called Vectors.  Collision for bullets and not getting killed instantly at times to sort, plus some extras.

This is the first time I've used OBS Studio for video capture, quite impressed but the colours are washed out.

Thanks, after fixing some bugs and tidying-up code you can now at least destroy them too.  Next up to have the entities split into 2 (instead of dissappearing) and add particle effects...
