Pseudolonewolf`s Avatar Raider: Level 1: COMING SOON Thu 2nd Apr 2009 11:39pm

Category: Raider

'Raider 2' was just the development name for that particular game; now it's called 'Raider: Level 1', and the other, old version which I'll likely never finish is called 'Raider Zero' to differentiate the two.

I have actually FINISHED Level 1 of this Raider, including the boss, plot, etc, which is great! I can't release it yet though since I'm still waiting for word from sponsors... This could take up to a week, or maybe even two. Let's see.
I'll try to focus on making the other levels while I wait so then I can release them whenever I want to... It'll be so RELIEVING to have a project out of the way, and it seems that this episodic approach is motivating me A LOT. I mean, I don't even want to SLEEP at night because I'm so excited to get more done on this game... I've not felt like that for ages. o_O
It's why I considered releasing MARDEK in the same way, but hmm...

Anyway, I may not work on other games (or the 'Figimon' thing) until Raider is done with, but hopefully it won't take long to finish now that the engine's entirely done (as is most of the music).

So, uh... that's that!

And no, you can't beta test the game yet.

I'd say that you should get the whole Raider deal done before you finish up Mardek, just because you'll have something done and out of the way. Besides, Mardek 2 was good enough to keep us waiting for 3 this long, why shouldn't we wait a while longer?

I have an idea.... You might of already thought of it but you should release a level editor like you will in FHO after you complete it.

It should be very basic and people will have a bit of fun with it.

Yah, splitting Mardek up would be weird since the first two aren't. But hmm you did remake the first two, so you could always change those to be split up. I agree that you shouldn't now though.

I read your comment that people think you are arrogant and such, but I dont think you are. I saw no ignorance in anything you have written. You have a lot of passion in your opinions on the chat thing, but I never see you directly attacking anyone and no one ever feels hurt there. Stop feeling bad. Not everyone interprets you like that.

Hmm... All I can say is it would be a shame if you scrapped the original Raider...

Please, Psudolonewolf, please resume work on Raider Zero. I don't want it to be like Triobot; you went too far on Raider Zero to stop now. Raider Zero was my favorite game on this site because of a perfect blend of action-platformers and RPGs. Raider One... is a bit too... "standard" in it's genre; wheras raider Zero had a plot, items, different weapons, and other characters. I have never and will never have problems about the order or timing that you relese your games in, but I do sincerely wish that you finish Raider Zero, even if you don't work on it for a long time.
I admit this post might be a bit candid, but Thank You for reading it.

"I don't even want to SLEEP at night because I'm so excited to get more done on this game". Don't then :p. But it's good that you've got some income now. Because even if people don't like what you're doing to raider, or even making it for that matter, it's good in the long term because you don't need to worry about money all the time.

OK I'd like ot appologise if I offended you by saying 10 minute game, I knew that if the game would be broken up it would be like Chapter 1. I only used that because in comparison to what the game would be compared to the full version it would possibly lose some of its depth and not really draw you into it.

I have all the faith that whatever you came out with would be good I was only worried that it might take away from some of the epic-ness that chapter 2 really had going for it.

As far as save points go I've always been open to that it keeps people on their toes. As long as the changes that you are talking about are more along the lines of functionality in game I think the response would be far more accepting

Again if I offended you it wasn't my intention.

The assumption seems to be that each episode would be 'tiny', but it really wouldn't be. Chapter 1 was a short game, an introduction. If I divided chapter 3 into episodes - and worry not, I won't now due to the reaction the idea got - each one would be 3-5 hours long, at least. Not a '10 minute game' or anything remotely like that...
I often get people assuming that I'll do things really STUPIDLY or annoyingly, like with the save points. That was another case of 'the players don't know what they want', because they assumed that the save points would be poorly placed and particularly irritating, but they're not; they're placed sensibly and before bosses to encourage you to heal and save when it's best to...
But anyway, uh, I'm not doing the episode thing with MARDEK.
Maybe after Raider's done with though, I'll make another game that I can make in short episodes for the sake of money, while I work on the longer, bigger projects...

If your talking about 'customers/players don't know what they want' as in the game of MARDEK I think you may be mistaken about that. What alot of people here (Including me) seem to think when opposing the idea of spliting up MARDEK into several parts per chapter is that it would take away the core of the game play by changing it from a rather long but rich and entertaining game to a small 10 minute thing that doesn't allo a player to feel sucked into the game.

Believe me I've played my share of short games and long games and I always find myself going back to play the long game because there is simply more to enjoy and work on than the 10 minute game that you complete and then forget about in a week. I love this game series because it is the best flash series I've ever played not because of its humor (Which is good) but because of its depth and length of gameplay that honestly no other game out there has and I'd hate to see the game lose that.
