Sky Puppy

Post by G.Silver »

A friend and I made this game for that 1-button game competition you may have heard about if you follow independent game development at all.

http://www.starquail.com

More info detailing its progress as we worked on it can be found in my <a href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/helldr ... journal</a>.

That...rules. I'm assuming you made the title screen art?

Wow, that looks pretty neat from the screenshots I saw. I'd play it now, but it's late and I need to sleep for work tomorrow, so I'll try it out on the weekends (want to, it has puppies!). I LOVE the title screen though.

Yep, I did the title screen and pretty much every other visual element except for some of the fonts and those nifty transparent arrows. :)

So the competition is for a website that sells shit for retarded kids? That's kind of funny. Is that why it has to be one button?

That's the gist of it, though it's for geniuses confined to wheelchairs too.

We used to get some weird handicapped people at GameStop, a couple of which we couldn't figure out how they played at all. One guy in a wheelchair with something wrong with his hands mentioned that he played only with arcade sticks by mashing the buttons with his knuckles. Which sounds pretty painful, I don't know if I'd be that devoted. There was another guy who looked like he'd had a really bad burn, a whole half of his body was all scarred, and one of his hands was just a hook. He was a regular customer and bought stuff all the time, and we never did figure out exactly how he plays games with that hook. There was also this retarded boy who'd come in and play the demo units, and we'd get a kick out of it because he'd twitch like he was having a seizure every time he'd play. I also saw him a couple of times at Best Buy.

Man, I'm starting to sound like a grandpa with all these old "I remember when" GameStop stories. I need a fucking job.

My friends little brother was born with some defect caused by the doctoers where he can't really control his left hand. It's just bent at the wrist and he kind of uses it as a stump. He got 80 grand out of the doctors, but the point of the story is he can play Halo better than his brother.

If he weren't a regular customer I'd suggest that he only played pirate games.

If by "meat" you mean... Meat... Then you would've heard correct

Yeah. Those things are amazing. A friend of mine has a disfuncional hand due to some problem at birth, but he kicks ass at volleyball.

Anyway, I can't seem to get the game to work. It gives the error message "Failed to Load Audio Resource 'ingame.mp3'". It looks very cute though.

That's a new one! First, run the game again and see if the error doesn't actually say the file is "ingame.wav," (because it should be!) then check the data/sound directory and see if the file is there or maybe corrupted somehow, it should be 3,408KB in size. If it's actually missing or not the right size (seems unlikely that the download could have screwed up, the install wouldn't have worked!), then download it again. Otherwise, we'll hafta put you through our rigorous debug procedure! :D

Nope. I have the ingame.wav file, but he asks for the ingame.mp3. I renamed it but it still doesn't work. Here's the error log:

" 2.992 seconds - Failed to Load Audio Resource 'ingame.mp3' "

I'm downloading it again, I really hope it works this time.

<a href="http://www.starquail.com/">Sky Puppy</a> is finished! There's a new demo up which has 3D accelerator support, among other things, which should make it run better for anyone who was having problems.

I guess we aren't supposed to make new posts that are about self adulation and just "here go check this out" but this thread was already here... :D

Sky Puppy is not about self adulation. Sky Puppy is about flyin' puppies. And nobody doesn't like flyin' puppies.
