 Under Construction: Adventures in Time 2

Hi There,

As the title says, I'm working on the second part of Adventures In Time (since several months). Those who read my posts on Facebook already know my blog:
http://kichydesign.blogspot.com/

Feel free to leave comments on my blog, my FB posts or here. One small rule: Do not ask for features Those always lower my motivation somehow

Cheers,
KiCHY/ASN

PS: Do we need a dedicated P4W page for "Ongoing Projects" ?

Oh. My. Goodness. You're just... unbelievable. You're doing everything I'd like to, if I still had time and energy (and had a fraction of your talent)

Ongoing projects? Sure, it could be added. I guess these would be just software releases, and the release date would be a special value (ongoing?).

I know a few more publicly announced ones: Luca + indi is working on XeO3, Ati is working on a star ship shooter game. I have a game and a demo which I mentioned a few times (and they are *sure* to be finished *soon* (sarcasm)). Honestly, will any of these ever see the light of day? I think there's a few others, but people choose not to talk about them, only once it's released...

 Re: Under Construction: Adventures in Time 2

I've just watched the videos.

All I can say is WOW!

Actually I can say more that that. This looks set to beat even Tom Thumb, I don't say that lightly.
...although it would be more amazing on an unexpanded C16 to beat Udo's Tom16 achievement (somehow I doubt it could happen with this).

I love the original AIT I'm proud to say I own, but with utmost respect I had always felt the gameplay a little limited though perfectly executed, which is why I'm loving the new ideas, puzzle elemnts, switches, bouncy platforms etc in the sequel so I assume it will be a bit more of an exploration game. I also imagine that it will be a disk multiload, possibly on 2-sides?

So far great work, more than great. You're taking our machines to a whole new higher console level, similar to what the Rowland Brothers achieved with Mayhem In Monsterland on the C64.

I can't wait for a Psytronik release

 Re: Under Construction: Adventures in Time 2

Hi,

Recently I'm quite busy with my real life job (since 1-2 monts, and another 1-2 busy months are on the way). So there were no updates in last few weeks. Another reason is that I'm waiting for some sprite graphics (outsourcing job, hehe)... I hoped I can publish a preview version with enemies, etc. on Arok Party (sadly, not personally) but I realize it won't happen.

I'm glad you are interested in the project, I promise I'll update my blog/this forum thread ASAP.

Cheers,
KiCHY

Long time passed since my last AIT2 news. Now the news is that there's no new news... Instead of news, I ask help!

All the retromaniac guys who has some kind of graphic talent, I ask you to take apart in development of AIT2. I need lots of graphics. Mostly 2x2 char sized animated sprites, some logos and similar.

Send me PM, or email for details, or post/send examples (using AIT2 screenshots with sprites drawn on them).

Thank You,
KiCHY/ASN

I don't have any talent for this... However this is such a big project that I'm reckoning quite a few people here will be eagerly holding their right arm up using their left arm to steady, like some schoolkid waiting to be noticed to have a go. We all can't wait for this

First of all, I'm sorry that I myself can't offer any useful help. I'm not a coder, let alone a gfx expert. - Being mainly interested in applications, I didn't notice the AiT subject from the beginning.

But on the other hand, I feel embarrassed that KiCHY's call for assistance has been without any response to him!!

Are there only software downloaders left here????

I my humble opinion, in a non-expanding community like our very small Commodore 264 universe, it should be self-understanding that we help each other - voluntarily! We shouldn't forget, Ladies and Gentlemen, that everything we find at this website -and particularly at its download area- is free.

Everyone can contribute, even small & tiny bits & pieces. As an example, my humble contribution will hardly be noticed (some EN-DE manual translations, one of those still in progress). But I feel myself very much obliged not only to take but to give as much as I'm capable of.

Let's remember again that everything we get here is FOC. Why don't give a little in return?

Regards,
Hans.

I totally agree with Hans regarding what he wrote in his post.
Really, since time I noticed that all my posts regarding programming (I'm not a grafixman) do obtain very little replies. Even when it is asked for just an opinion.
What think?

 Re: Under Construction: Adventures in Time 2

The scene is small SVS and not everyone has the time or is using the machines in the very same way as you might be using them. We are all different.

When was the last time you commented on a game? I'm not being rude by saying this but as an example it works both ways... We all follow what interests us the most I guess.

From what I see people respect and love what you do even if the numbers are small. End of the day it's a hobby either way or that's how I see it. Don't take it to heart if people don't say anything. RobertB is the winner of the no replies competition - if there was such a thing.

Another thing, how much goes on behind the scenes we don't know about? I don't use Facebook or what ever other things people use for social stuff. Sometimes a project can be done with little replies on here because people know or have been working on it and much of what might of been said has already happened... Maybe?

I wish you luck in this project Kichy, I bought the original disk. The sequel is already looking spectacularly far more amazing.

I hope some guys here are willing to take up the honorary challenge, the demos are fantastic. I wish I had the talent to help.

To let this project die is now just unforgivable in this community. We all know it. So someone has to do something.

I don't care how or where, even if it's from a C64'er. Sout & Udo Gertz were multiplatformer programmers too so not sure how they're any different


Ahh maybe you all get my point. Do we wanna see this game die?

 Re: Under Construction: Adventures in Time 2

First of all I'd like to say that i love Kichys work. The AIT2-Previews look fantastic and more than once i had that feeling of "man, that is the kind of game i would have loved to do myself". So, Kichy, please don't let the lack of response bring you down. What you do is cool and you should keep doing it.

As for me: I also didn't answer Kichys call for help because on one hand i'm not a graphician. And if - on the other hand - i would propose some code-work, i'm not so sure i could keep my promises. I don't like to be the cause for a delay - which is most likely to happen because i only have so few spare time.

 Re: Under Construction: Adventures in Time 2

Sixteen Plus,

Graphics & Music are one thing but the last one was a long way off being the so called best game of them all as it was lacking in game play. Half empty screens on the lines of Monty on the Run do it no favors in replay value and limit any challenge it might of had.

I think the Robin Hood guy on the title screen should come in to play as a usable character.

What it needs is to be is more challenging. Things firing out out the walls, stuff to challenge and test your game playing skills. Platform games from the past are remembered for what they offer and I'm not talking Tom Thumb. Stuff like Turrican 1 & 2, Rick Dangerous 1 & 2, Impossamole, Switchblade are fine examples of great platform games. On the other hand Flimbo's Quest is over rated as a game because it's crap but the music wins people over every time even me lol.

Just some friendly advice. Needs more in the game play department. For the record I gave Adventures In Time a 10/10 and Adventures In Time 2 needs to be a 11/10 to be that so called greatest game of all time. No amount of excellent graphics & music which they are will make it the best.

 Re: Under Construction: Adventures in Time 2

I wasn't talking about the original game. Indeed it's good, the music is fantastic but it lacks a little gameplay.

The video demos which I've seen so for of AIT2 looks fantastic, and with the right elements could be that 11/10 you expect.

It has the makings to be at least the best platformer for our system.

 Re: Under Construction: Adventures in Time 2

How about some wall & floor spikes, what about adding under water sections as I'm sure he could swim. Add some oxygen canisters to limit the time you can spend in under water cave area's. Add coins or something to collect towards completing the game including secret area's with passage ways found in solid walls that you can only find if you test all walls, some not so obvious.
