Ritual Pageant - VESPER.5 (finished)

Postby Michael Brough » Mon Aug 06, 2012 11:15 pm

Okay had an idea for this and it's the LAST ONE so going to try to fit it in.

You may only take one step each day. Missing a day takes you back. So to complete the game will require a ritual of running it each day over a month or so. I'll try to make this worth doing.

Oooh a year-long roguelike would be cool... it's like those games of Go that take months and years to play

Started on this. Not much time so I'm going with a very basic design - no combat or real puzzles, just moving along a path. Some maziness. Going for minimum play-time 100 days, but longer if you take a less efficient route, wander off to look at something, etc.

Going to have to do some serious work on sound and graphics to make this worthwhile.

This is a really great idea. If you don't finish it by the deadline I'd love to see you continue work on it anyway.

Drew some tiles. Trying to evoke a temple.

If possible (maybe after the pageant?) maybe add an e-mail reminder thing you can opt-into, if you don't take a turn for a few days

Did a bunch more tiles, end condition, some insects buzzing about to make it feel more alive . Records replay and plays it back when you reopen it, up to where you were before; trying to have the sense of building something up over time, seeing all the progress you've made each day.

At this point I'd usually post a build but it's probably preferable to keep everything hidden until the "one move a day" restriction is in there. Probably not going to use the "send you back if you miss a day" idea because that's just cruel.

Next: music, a bunch more graphics for kind of "rewards" along the way, some kind of cool sound and animation for the ending.

Wonder if anyone will bother to play through this. Wonder if they'll find it worthwhile if they do.

I think this would be worthwhile even if there's just a message at the end that says "the end".

Reached the minimum required graphics for the design I've set myself. Some of them are amazing. More tiles would be nice, more/better portraits would be nice, but I've got to crunch some music in first.

This is a bit crazy; how can I expect to make 100+ days worth of game in only a week?

Almost there now. Just some bits of polish to do: some chaos on the ending, sitting, more graphics maybe. Would like to get this out today if possible so I can get back to my TIGJam game.

Okay, here's a windows build: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?2h86rv6fjd939dd
Let me know what you think.
I'll compile for mac in a day or so.

Well...I went up!
See ya in a year or two to tell you if I enjoyed! ^^

Seriously, great graphics and great idea of course. Can't say more for now, but I think I'll try to play it everyday, I'm curious.
I also tried to cheat by changing my computer date, and it worked. But I only did it once...just to know If it would work (I spoilt my tomorrow's game session!)
