This is a general for discussing all matters pertaining to amateur game development, including devblogging, seeking advice, posting resources, being an idea guy, etc.
Not sure if there's enough of a userbase here to get something so niche off the ground, but I figured I'd see what happens. Maybe 22chan will have a decent library of original games someday. We've already got Steve's Garden, after all. I'll be posting about my current project shortly, and anyone who is working on something is encouraged to do the same.

I thought when you said editor, you meant vim or emacs or something. Unity and Unreal are engines. They're completely unrelated to what I'm doing.


LOL? LOL? i mean visual editors... vim and emacs are just text editor... do you not use the GUI editor in code blocks?


If you're referring to the window-based interface of my game, that's custom code. SDL is the only non-standard library I'm using.

I just bought bioshock the collection, and i literally have no clue whatsoever about the series, havent seen any ads or looked it up so i'm playing with a fresh set of eyes. This isn't muh personal blog thread so feel free to talk about whatever bioshock related thing. Also i really dont care about spoilers but if your worried about spoiling it especially to others or you want me to blacktext then just ask.

Elisabeth also has a thimble for a finger but i'm not sure why they chose to highlight that.


Turns out i was right and things did balance out because the vox are BurnLootMurder but really it does remind me of the Weathermen. Killing innocent people whom they degraded to being no more then subhuman animals such as innocent children, just because they are white or born in columbia it somehow means they are spawn of the founders. reducing the utopia of columbia to rubble instead of uniting everyone.

Is anyone playing pokemon bdsp? How is it?


havent played it since 60$ is too much for a game like that and also it's buggy, apparantly someone hacked the global trading aspect and it seems it can't be fixed. Maybe i'm dumb but the newer pokemom games just don't seem right. They all seem like cheap cashgrabs with little to no improvements to be sold to manchildren and kids/normalfags. Haven't seen any proper reviews yet for the game but i'm sure sooner or later someone will bite and give a decent breakdown since it just came out recently.

ITT:Talk about your what your currently doing gaming wise. Please post screenshots of the game you are talking about for context. Feel free to talk about what you think about the story.
I am currently playing CrossCode which is an action RPG. It is pretty interesting so far. The combat is fun and the pixel art is very cool looking to me pic related. What is odd to me is that the developers seem to love diversity and have npcs of all different races. It hasn't affected the quality of the game so far but it is obvious what the developers politics are. Currently, I am doing a dungeon that involves a puzzle. I haven't had the energy to do it but I will definitely complete it to talk about it in this thread.

Just to elaborate further, you can seriously beat this game in like 3-4 hours


Also if anyone knows of any good mech games, let me know lol titanfall made me much more interested in this idea along with robotech and gundam.



>Into the Breach

A turn-based strategy game made by the developers of FTL that plays almost like a puzzle game. Just watch the trailer, I can't really describe how it plays but its very good and quite unique.


A Battletech strategy game. The original game is abandonware so you can get it for free. https://www.moddb.com/mods/mechcommander-gold-hi-res/downloads/mcg-darkest-hours-fullversion This mod includes the original game along with a bunch of extra shit and higher resolution support.

>Front Mission

A strategy RPG series. I can't really tell you which is the best because I have heard many conflicting viewpoints, though apparently 3 is the worst? That was the one I initially tried and I didn't have any issues with it during the few hours I played. There is DS port of the original game which I've gotten on my homebrewed 3DS but I haven't played very much of it yet.

There is also the Mechwarrior and Armoured Core series as well as Battletech (yes, the game has the same name as the tabletop franchise) but I haven't played any of them. In Mechwarrior and AC you control a mech directly. Mechwarrior is a Battletech series and Armoured Core is a series made by From Software (of Dark Souls fame). I really couldn't tell you which Mechwarrior game to play but apparently For Answer is the best AC game, although there are a lot of them. The game doesn't run very nicely on emulator though, so perhaps you will have to play an older title (I think AC2 for the PS2 would be a good bet. I'm sure another anon that has played the games could give a better opinion, though).

Battletech is also a strategy game but its gameplay resembles the tabletop game a lot more. I don't know of any games that play like Titanfall though. A bit of a meme game you could try is Shogo: Mobile Armour Division. It was made by Monolith (who also made F.E.A.R and Blood, both excellent shooters).

ITT: Tell us what you're emulating and discuss emulation.

A good site to find games to emulate.

These are the best (in my opinion) PS1 and PS2 emulators.
PS1: https://github.com/stenzek/duckstation (Make sure to up the quality in the enhancement settings.)
PS2: https://pcsx2.net

I'm currently playing through the Legacy of Kain series. I recently finished Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain and it's such a good game. The soundtrack, level design, gameplay, everything is great. The writing really blew me away, I loved hearing Kain speak. His lines are like straight out of some old gothic horror novel.
I'm playing Soul Reaver now. I don't think it's as good but I'm still enjoying my time with it. Raziel is a bit too angsty for me at times. The game still has a cool neo-gothic vibe and the music and writing holds up.

I'm playing a PS1 game called Juggernaut. It's an adventure/horror game. It's fucking great, it's full of cool stuff and PS1 silliness. The plot centers on you being sent into your girlfriend's mind in order to free her soul from a demon who is possessing her. It's all very surreal, quite an interesting game.

What do you think about the current state of vidya? Is our time a bad time for vidya or is it a good one? Share your thoughts.
I ​think this era is simultaneously the best and, possibly, the worst.

Vidya has never been more accessible than today. The internets allow easy access to numerous titles through programs like Steam/GOG and of course there's always good old piracy. Emulation opens the door to an endless backlog of old vidya at no expense at all. In a matter of minutes I can experience some obscure Japanese Playstation game from the comfort of my living room. There are tons of free-to-play games out there. Online games make playing with friends easy and even allow for making new friends through the game. This is the best time for experiencing vidya. 10-15 years ago our situation was a distant dream and I think a lot of people take this for granted.

Indeed, our tech is impressive. Video games keep evolving, the latest game one-upping the last. Is this necessarily a good thing? It's great what games can accomplish but often it feels unnecessary. Take the cinema in Red Read Redemption. You can pay to watch a short movie over the shoulder of your character. Does this really add any value to the gameplay or is just there because it's cool? Sometimes it seems our technical advancements just result in bloat. Even more so I get the feeling that as video games try to impress you with all of their cool features and grandeur, somewhere along the line those things took precedence over artistic integrity.
Video games have become more than simple entertainment. Reality seeps more and more into games. Vidya has become too involved in politics and social justice. Like how the God of War development team is making figures from Norse mythology black. It just doesn't make sense. It's like setting a game in Africa and populating entire towns with white people. This gets in the way of genuine, good storytelling because it's just done to please a certain crowd. Don't even get me started on Amnesia: Rebirth.
Everyone has to be pleased. The general consensus seems that video games must include everyone. This has led to dumbed down gameplay in many titles. Of course, this depends on the game but I believe most big-company games will adopt this method. A good example is the Elder Scrolls series. Even though I love Oblivion it's obvious every new entry in the series is more watered down than the first.
Vidya is becoming more of an industry every day.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Probably because RPGs are so popular right now. I think they're just trying to cash in. Seems pretty retarded to turn one of the most famous FPS series of all time into a fucking RPG.


They even added in a skill tree like fucking destiny, I can't even imagine why it's even needed in the first place.


Skill trees seem to be another thing that's really popular now, I've seen it implemented in a lot of stuff. I don't really like them, I think they can hamper progression.

Cry of Fear is a free-to-play horror game on Steam. It's one of the scariest games I've played. I highly recommend it if you're a horror fan.


The multiplayer for halo infinte is free, and if your a consolefag, it wont require you to even need xbox live gold or whatever.

6 replies (and 2 image replies) omitted. Click here to view.


If you ignore 4 and 5, play all the games including Halo wars, watch the animated shorts and the halo anime, and read some of the books i'd honestly say it's an amazing series with a well fleshed out lore. 4 and 5 really add gay shit that kinda muddles things up. Reach is good, but the issue is that bungie ported over the grunt skins to 4 and 5 with the same voices which doesnt make sense to already established lore (reach grunts are basically the "early versions" and what they say is alien gibbersih since no one translated the language yet) And dont get me started with WARDEN ETERNAL and the foreunner robots, the didact character is decent though so i'll give them a gold star sticker and a cookie for his potrayal.

Your better off playing the PC Version of Obvlivion due to how SERIOUSLY buggy it is but i'm still having fun reguardless But it's bullshit when you work hard on something and you cant complete it because either something happened in the background like a character being killed by accident, doing something you didnt realise would break the game without even knowing it, shit programming thats literally broken thanks todd howard.
>mages guild quests
>some bitch wants me to get a necklace to cure her because she's insane without it
>go to area to get necklace

>go back in, still hard but i figured out a way to survive
>get necklace
>tries to give to woman but she says

fuck niggers
>final step is me killing her then going out and killing everyone in a blaze of glory
>managed to kill the whole town and then atleast 12 guards before i died
>managed to get a guard to fight with and kill a villager lol
Great story tho i must say, i love how the maged guild is just as bonkers as the one in Morrowind, literally assasinating eachother just to stay ahead
[spoiler]my favorite quest so far is the assassins guild, The Whodunnit? quest where you have to pull a Hitman and force a group of people to kill eachother by sweettalking[/spoiler]


I think Oblivion is a great game. It's broken as hell but I still love it. Are you playing with the Unofficial Patch? If you run into problems like this it's good to go to uesp.net and read about whatever it is you're doing in the game.
Check the bugs section, from reading your story I think you encountered one. [spoiler]How did you miss the guy lol? He literally comes running at you down the stairs.[/spoiler]


He never did lol i talked to everyone in the mages guild with no results

CDDA General


What's this?


Open-source rougelike set in a zombie apocalypse. I've played a bit of it and it's quite good fun if you are willing to learn the complex parts of it.
To give you an example of how realistic this game is, you need to get a daily amount of vitamin C or else you'll catch scurvy.


Here's a download link for it(it's free) and the wiki if you want to read more about it.

Thread theme's kinda obvious, (spoopy games, weird shit, horror, ect) but it can also expand to horror elements in games you wouldnt exactly expect to see it in. Like say in pokemon red and blue, How team rocket slaughtered all the pokemon in lavander town. leaving you to even fight against a vengeful spirit. The creepy music didnt help make it any less spookyer. Or in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
There's a boss fight where you see all the the ghosts of the people you killed in game (all of them) and they even yell at you about how you killed them! Shoot a guy in the head, he'll cry out and say
>"my head!"
as he attempts to strangle you. also what's funny is if you shoot a guy in the crotch, he'll say how you "took his manhood" away from him.

I can't believe this thread hasn't been bumped so close to Halloween! What's the spookiest game you've played, anon? For me it's Cry of Fear, it is fucking terrifying. It's a very unfriendly game.


The issue with me is, I've already talked about all the spooky games i've played in this thread. I've watched a walkthrough without commentery for an interesting game though. Much like Alan Wake, it has a live action prequel https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLWjnM4fZ4U8wLxrFXjL-95ME0QJwdz8m8
Anyway, the game is called SOMA.
So, Your an average joe, Working a pretty regular 9 to 5 job. Wake up, Work, Sleep, Repeat. One day things don't exactly go as plan and you get onto a bad car wreck. Your fine, no scratches or broken bones. Just some real bad head trama. You can't really tell thats anythings wrong but you honestly don't have too long to live. You get a call from some scientist for you to volenteer for some program he's running about scanning your brain, You do the thing and get home quickly because you feel kinda sleepy. You go to sleep then wake up. It's time to work! Everything honestly looks fine and you get out of bed, and walk out the door to leave. You expected to get some fresh air but instead you get a futuristic, yet fucked up hallway that obviously is in a state of disrepair. After exploring, things go from 0 to 100 real quick.
The whole game is a total mindfuck. From the underwater setting, To music, humanity, and making choices you don't feel comfortable with this game does well. I kinda dont want to spoil it or talk too much about it but; [spoiler]So earth is fucked, everyones dead and the people that are alive got their brain scanned and put into robots, and are currently on some secret reseach center deep under the ocean. (200 years in the future) The transfer is honestly tramatic and they don't mention or atleast pretend they are still human, and if they realise they are robots they go totally insane. The human crew/scientists got turned into monsters because of nanotech they either touched, or ate because they ran out off food and it turned them into horrible monsters[/spoiler]>>627


I've played SOMA before. I thought it was cool but didn't like it very much. My opinion is biased though because at the time I was really sick of every horror game having the run-n-hide mechanic. I will say the setting was great, very spooky and ominous. [spoiler]I was very disappointed that there was no option in the end to destroy what was left of humanity.[/spoiler]

It was hard but now I have flying boomerang which seems good against flying units. Before they were always a chore
