Re: [WIP] Commander Keen: Galaxy Reimagined (Demo now available)

Managed to get a temporary dev environment set up. I've now implemented customizable controls (or more specifically, the menu for configuring them + the loading / saving of them; as the actual behind-the-scenes support for them was already there since day one).

Re: [WIP] Commander Keen: Galaxy Reimagined (Demo now available)

Unfortunately, development on this is going to be on hold for a while. The battery on my PC crapped out and it refuses to run without one. I don't want to resort to replacing the whole thing just yet. If it ends up taking too long to sort out I'll drag my old one out and set it up, but in the meanti...

Re: [WIP] Commander Keen: Galaxy Reimagined (Demo now available)

I uploaded a new version of the demo. The only change from the previous demo is that it has the new camera code. Otherwise it's identical (including that save data will carry over).

Re: [WIP] Commander Keen: Galaxy Reimagined (Demo now available)

I put together some code for a different camera behavior that's more similar to that of the official games: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ei_Cuc5aQ0

Re: [WIP] Commander Keen: Galaxy Reimagined (Demo now available)

You have to obtain the pogo and blaster before you can use them, just like in Keen 1. I'll edit these into the first post (and maybe add a readme to the download) later, but controls are (keyboard / gamepad respectively; gamepad controls listed here are for Xbox-compatible controllers): Arrow keys /...

Re: [WIP] Commander Keen: Galaxy Reimagined (Demo now available)

A question to people who've played the demo; what do and don't you like in the level design? Are there any particular levels you liked or disliked?

Re: [WIP] Commander Keen: Galaxy Reimagined (Demo now available)

Btw, I stealth-released a new demo a few days ago. This one has some bugfixes since the first one, and also allows playing a few Fribbulus Xax levels. ;)

Re: [WIP] Commander Keen: Galaxy Reimagined (Demo now available)

I do plan to eventually release the source code, and guides for editing (most would just be done in a standard image or text editor; maps are made in Tiled, and my internal builds of the game have a built in editor for tile properties; the formats are all fairly simple so probably also wouldn't be h...

Re: [WIP] Commander Keen: Galaxy Reimagined (Demo now available)

A while back I implemented a minimap. This is now tied to collecting a pickup item that allows you to use it, which will be found somewhat late in the game. The minimap is quite powerful - it'll reveal secret areas too! (Not that I'm going as hard on those as the official games did, but there are st...

Re: Keen Awards 2023: Nominations

I definitely think a bit longer than a week is a good idea. Dunno if it has to be the whole year. Perhaps a month or so?

Re: [WIP] Commander Keen: Galaxy Reimagined (Demo now available)

Several. I'm coding it myself in the C# language, using the Visual Studio IDE, and the MonoGame library (as well as a custom library of my own for some higher-level graphic / audio / input stuff). Paint.NET for any graphical editing, Tiled for the maps (though these get converted to a custom format ...

Re: [WIP] Commander Keen: Galaxy Reimagined (Demo now available)

I don't plan to make lots of levels like that (I feel it would get a bit tacky at that point), but it seemed like a good place to put one.

Re: [WIP] Commander Keen: Galaxy Reimagined (Demo now available)

Another level preview; one with a VERY large variety of enemies in one level. ;)

Re: Keen Awards 2023: Nominations

Just for my two cents on the whole updates thing - over in the Lemmings community we've never worried too much about later updates in our closest equivalent to this (Level of the Year), or for that matter demos released earlier than the year in question. Just as long as the initial major public rele...
