If you want some super good and honest feedback, my recommendation is that you go to @Crigence. He has a post called “The Crigence Critique”.
alright, thanks, I just asked for a review from them.
Cool! Good luck, he’s a tough critique haha
Difficulty: 4/5 (Not too easy, not too hard)
Gameplay: 4.5/5 (Very fun game)
Sound: 4/5 (Great sounds!)
Art: 5/5 (Are you DaVinci?!)
Controls: 3/5 (The space used for jump just threw the controls off)
Overall Score 8/10
Hope this helps!
i got the game up on newgrounds with the help of JR_01’s instructions:
The game is under judgement so It would be great if you could give it a rating!
fixed a few bugs
added dust effects when you jump, and enemy blood sprays on the wall
got a review from Crigence
Top-of-the-line reviews! (The Crigence Critique)
got help with fixing up that planet I showed earlier, should be accessible through normal means later today possibly.
should i exchange the wall jump for a double jump?
the double jump is more fun and less buggy (in my opinion)
I (personally) preferred the wall jump since it felt more “realistic”, I suppose? Though something I think that could be there instead is a long/short jump, so when they is pressed for a longer time, you jump higher. JR probably made an example lol though when I tried to make one, it was eh
It’s more immersive, you’re not jumping on air, it’s at least a little more realistic.
the game already has something like that from the beggining. you hold down the space bar to jump higher. Are you saying I should have an upgrade that ups the max height?
hey F3, wanna help me make that game? maybe we should make a splatoon 2 octo expansion.
you can now access that planet I posted about a while ago.
you can visit it by colliding with a small shuttle in the control room, near the top left of the station.
(fyi there isn’t really much to do there yet, it’s just for fun at this point.)
what to work on next?
- finish optional side content
if you voted for polish/bugfixes, do you have any specific things that need fixing, besides what’s been said by crigence?
and hey look! 1k views!
Still working on this game, sorry. but If you have something really specific that you need help with, I could maybe give you hand.
I think that’s always what you should do first, in every situation. CDPR’s work with Cyberpunk 2077 is a great example. A beautiful game that we would love to see get more added onto it, but they decided to fix its flaws before moving on, which is the best decision overall. It makes those future projects (like side content and story add-ons) that much easier
I’m having a bug where the sounds for hitting the floor after jumping aren’t playing anymore. any Ideas for why this would happen? It should be in the run and jump bundle.
anyone have any ideas?
-fullscreen has been added (press F to toggle)
-some things have been polished
-submitted the game to @BitWit for a review
-now working on that downloadable /printable map
also, I still really need help with this bug
and the game is embed on itch.io
as well as newgrounds, which I said in an earlier post
Hold on, I just checked Newgrounds and-
August Silence has 200 views?!
update on the planet:
-new sound effects and animations for foliage
(though one sound effect is missing because of that bug)
-multiple parallax layers in the background
also, what should the planet be called?
