good evening polygon fans, as you might have noticed in the last month i didn't updated the Polygon Game project, while i have many good reasons for this. i can happily declare - i'm back - and this time with a new project.
My next project is called "(VEX) Digital-Battle" is a xonix style game. your mission as the first PSP antivirus is to conquer as much of the screen (PSP memory) without being hit by the evil upgrade viruses. if you lose - your system will be upgraded to firmware 2.0 MUUHAHAHA! (not seriously of course).
While it's not a downgrade solution nor the PSIX (which i must admit i'm very impressed of) its my small (while addicting) contribution to the homebrew community - which in he bottom line is based on good homebrew than on downgarde solutions.
anyway, several of the features i'm considering to include to the first version :
- the regular power-ups and weapons.
- high score table with an option to export the best score to a "best-of-the best" table on the internet.
- fully skinnable screen backgrounds. (actually i will upload a reference template in the next few days)
in the code department the game is 75% done (before debugging - yuck!), while my progress in the graphics department is quite impressive as you can see in the attached image.
as you might already notices the player graphics and the virus graphics are temporarely in ASCII art. now i'm looking for a nice player graphic set, and sets for two-three types of enemy viruses.
if you are gifted in pixel art more than me don't be shy and contact me or upload your artwork to this thread. as well this thread will be used to upload background sets , and of course for your ideas.
Site admin note:
oh.. and a last request to the site admins... please do not post the preview image in the news page. there is no need to create unnecessary hype around this project - at least not until it's done.
