GrandTheftLöve

Post by Borsty » Tue Jun 30, 2009 11:26 pm

Alright guys, after quite some time I'm back! And this time with a game idea ( Unlike last time with stuff like gLöve/Löve3D or lgui )

This time, I present you: Grand Theft Löve :)
The name pretty much comes from how the game looks like, it's a pseudo 3d top-down view shooter.

Right now I've got the base level-rendering done, basic entity classes including a player class with collision detection and other important stuff.

Next things will be adding regular items/pickups, decorations for the level, sounds and most important networking!
Yes you heard right.. I plan on making this game multiplayer :)

That's for now, here's a little ingame screenshot and below a link to download the current beta-release.

Controls are: WASD for movement, left and right arrow keys for turning, left shift to sprint, spacebar to jump, escape key to quit.

Enjoy!

This is windows-only... are you planning on releasing the source?

About the game: funny. I like how jumping works. Hard to walk in a strait line, though.

I see no love. Is it because "There is no linux/mac users on the internet!" or because the source code is secret?
lg.newImage("cat.png") -- made possible by lg = love.graphics
-- Don't force fullscreen (it frustrates those who want to try your game real quick) -- Develop for 1280x720 (so people can make HD videos)

Yes, the controls are a bit fast, but it seems like it's going to be a good game.

I didn't want to directly release the code to it yet yes.. thanks to Robin -.-

Anyway, how is it too fast? D:
It's based on the time difference so it's the same for everyone and I think it's perfect :C
Meh, we'll see ^^

:Edit:
Oh crap I see what I did wrong with the movement and why It's too fast for some people D:
brb fixin'

Well, you did, in a way: most decent archive programs can open .zips appended to (for example) .exes, so the only thing I did was save some forum bandwidth ;)
Edit: ok, that's not right. The .exe is not on the forum server. But it still makes a difference for those of us with dial-up!

How often will I need to say this? Maybe someone should create a sticky, anyway, here it is:
You can run the exe, just treat it like a .love, if you want, call it a .love, it will recognize it.

On topic:
Controls are better, a little question, why is turning using the arrow keys, and walking using the w key?
