Son of Scoregasm Update

Son of Scoregasm Update

Hello,

I’ve not posted much about this lately (though I don’t talk a little about it on Twitter), so i figured i’d make a post about how Son of Scoregasm is going.

I’ll start with a recent video:

So, it’s nearly finished actually. I’m currently working on the last boss level, after which it’ll be spit and polish and a few interface bits and i think i’m about ready to go!

Those of you who’ve played Scoregasm will likely have noticed that it’s got a sort of multiple route thing going on, where you can, to some degree, choose a path through the game. I say to some degree because there are 3 distinct routes laid out in rows, and you can flit between them at the end of each stage. This is cool and all, but for Son of Scoregasm I thought it’d be more fun to make more of this feature, to wit the levels are now arranged in a huge pyramid, just like Ferrero Rocher. Well, except it’s a flat pyramid. Or triangle I suppose, but that’s no fun. It’s a bit like Outrun, happy?

Excelente

What has stayed from Scoregasm is the variety of level types, so there’s some straight shooty ones, some ones with obstacles/hazards to be avoided, boss levels etc. Also, those of you who are fans of both pointless contextualisation AND biscuits will be please to hear that the King of the Earth is making a return, along with his Family Circle selection box.

What has changed a bit is the scoring. This time around you’ll need to use the pulse attack to kill enemies and get them to drop little green multiplier tokens. Then you can shoot them to score points. This means that if you’re going for a big score you’ll need to work out the best ratio of pulse attacking and shooting to get your multiplier at the right levels and at the right times.

Here’s another video of a boss thingy. It’s a bit noisy at the start, soz:

Both videos are of the game running on the PS Vita BTW.

I’m really pleased with how it’s turning out, and by the time it’s released i should be about ready to explode with delight! It’ll be coming out on the rather nifty PlayStation Vita first, and following shortly after on Windows, Linux and Macs. It’s written in C this time too, so there’s a chance of a hope it may come out on some other platforms in addition to those, though i’m not sure how well the controls will translate on touchscreens??? Who knows though, right?

Want to know what it’ll be like? Try the original Scoregasm! Handily, it’s on sale at the moment for $.99 (or optionally more!), so you’ve no excuse. Sale is going on here: SCOREGASM SALE. Any cash raised just goes straight into Son of Scoregasm’s development.

Anyway, that’s enough for now. Have fun!

Cheers
Charlie

Hello!

It’s new years eve, so i thought i’d run a sale!

This time, i’m offering ALL my games for $1, including Steam keys for those of them on Steam. Can’t say better than that!

Why new years eve? mostly because i’m sure these games be terrible hangover cures, what with their brightly coloured, flashing visuals and pumping soundtracks! That said, the sale will be running for a few days, so if you want to worsen your hangover, who am i to stop you!

For your $1 (or more if you like) you’ll get DRM free copies of my award winning shooter Scoregasm, along with a steam key, Bullet Candy (also with steam key), Irukandji, Bullet Candy Perfect, and some other bonus goodies and demos etc. for Windows, Mac OS X AND Linux. It’s an absolute new years bargain!

Just enter how much you think it’s all worth below, and i’ll get stuff over to you ASAP! Check out the videos below to see what the games look like.

THE SALE HAS NOW ENDED! However, you can still get all my games for their usual (and still pretty cheap) price of $5

Remember to click ‘Return to Merchant’ after you’ve paid, or you might have to wait a little while to get your links. :)

Scoregasmic Thanksgiving Special!

Happy Thanksgiving!

This year i’m writing a new shooty game (see some videos here) that i’m trying to raise a bit of money to develop, so i’ve got Scoregasm available for $1! There’s literally no better way of getting through that post-turkey lethargy!

You get a DRM free copy for Windows, Mac and Linux, plus a Steam key that’ll work for Mac and Windows Steam (and Linux soon). It’s a total bargain and what’s more you can give the game as a gift to a friend! it’s what this time of year is all about!

You can also leave an optional tip, should you be feeling generous enough to want to help me with my new game. As a sweetener on this, if you pay $20+ for your copy, i’ll draw you a picture of a turkey taking part in the activity of your choice. I can’t promise it’ll be brilliant, but it’ll be (digitally) yours alone to do what you wish with. How’s that????




Here’s a video of the game. It won the indiegames.com arcade game of the year in 2011 you know?


Anyhoo, hope you have a great thanksgiving and that all your turkeys are bloody massive!

Cheers
Charlie
