I'm making a game - or trying to anyway! It's been many months since I started...   :(  B)

 

It's based on Monster Rancher for the GBA but with slimes rather than monsters.

  • You raise slimes and increase their stats through training

  • Battle them against other slimes in tournaments to gain ranks, gold and items

  • Explore dungeons/different biomes to try and find new slimes/items that may otherwise be unobtainable

  • Breed slimes together to create new ones.

  • Food can help with training certain stats/resistances and also give stats a boost. 

  • Breeder book to track knowledge of the different slimes and food benefits etc

  • Slimes like certain things, dislike others

  • Slimes can gain traits as you raise them based on what they do, how you treat them and what you feed them etc.

So this is pretty much slime rancher and monster rancher mixed into one.

Kind of, I guess :) More MR than SR. I really wanted to use Slime Rancher as a name too  :(

 

You only raise one slime at a time, for example, and can freeze them for breeding or just storage.

 

How you're able to freeze an ice slime, don't ask me  :dunno:

Nice. Post some screens or problems to solve.

I also started with GameMaker. its good for novices in programming, but dont stay too long with it. Better go with C#.

 

I made some nice shit in gamemaker like advanced AI for mobs or crafting system,  but it was slow as fuck. That was the reason i stopped using GM.

game maker is a shitty tool but it's a tool indeed. a drum music on recycle bin is a good music as far as it sound good as well.

what matters anyway is the result.

it's doesn't make a huge difference but i would really recommend you transferring to unity before you gone too far, because it will make u more productive, and extend your toolset.

in any case good luck mate ;d

 

p.s. i'm an unreal engine game dev

Q: Price?  

A: Less than $10 - between $5-10 I'm thinking

Q: Release date?

A: When it's done ><

Q: Open/closed beta?

A: If you guys want to play test it then that would be cool - feedback is always welcome

Q: Blogs?

A: On the steam group: http://steamcommunit...roups/slimefarm

Q: Multiplayer?

A: Not at the moment. If I had multiplayer it would have players slimes battling it out, that's all.

Q: Single player? It's a single player game right now.
A: Storyline? You're a goblin who wants to be the best slime trainer in the underground! You start off at the bottom rank with the worst slime and go from there.

Q: Shitty servers?

A: No servers

Q: Forums? 

A: Steam group: http://steamcommunit...roups/slimefarm

Q: Early acces?

A: No, but play testers welcome

Q: Dlc?

A: Maybe multiplayer, new slimes to unlock/breed. New areas to explore etc. I won't charge for DLC unless I really need to (main expense is artists)
FreeKey4Me Maybe!

Thanks for the offer, dude. I might take you up on that. I've been able to overcome problems so far, it's just doing the work now at the moment. I don't see myself moving to C# or any other language for a long time, haha.

 

Can't seem to show a screenshot here but the link is below - latest screenshot of the slime farm.

I've learned a lot since march last year - arrays scared me and Id never done a "For" loop before. Now Im using them all the time. After I've finished this project I might take a look at other languages. I don't really want to make 3d games though, I want to make 2d Simulation games because that's what I love :) (And game maker seems pretty good at that, but I don't know any better)

This simple GML knowledge was also my "start" with programming. Before GameMaker i didnt write a single line of code.

 

Now i do shit in job in VBA   and for web projects i use JavaScript, Node.JS and some frameworks  everyday.  

I also started digging in Unity C#. I wish learn C# enough to help KA in modding Bannerlord for siege.

I thought M&B was coded in Python? I downloaded python a few years ago to see if I could learn it as I wanted to mod too but it seemed pretty complicated compared to anything I'd done before (pascal).

warband - C++
bannerlord - C++ (C++/C# for modding)

you can't have such a complicated game written in python, as python is a scripting language and has very hard time on real-time performance. not the language for game development.

 

Isn't pascal very old? I thought only few old applications still uses it.

C++ is very old as well, (C# quite old too as for 2017).
       old is not necessary bad, as it gets updated.

Delphi is actually a wrapper around Turbo-Pascal and is working pretty well for general needs (used in some companies)
also many shop terminals are ass-old and written in pascal, and somebody has to troubleshoot them after all.

What should I start with? I will probably study "Software engineering and Software Science", any suggestion to start with and practice so I can get a little head start on the study :). As I literally spend 4 hours outside school on school (have 29 atm), and really need to do smt next to it.
