Raider - The Adventures of Arkus ZeiOther Games


Originally, Raider was supposed to consist of five Episodes, which told a story between them. However, the first two weren't nearly as successful as I hoped, and it's embarrassing to even think of releasing another three knowing that the others 'failed'.
So what I plan to do instead is just have one game consisting of the original story in its five parts, but with completely redesigned maps. The levels will hopefully be easier and more 'fun' and Arkus will be able to move in more interesting ways.
Rather than just having five huge levels, there will be five 'zones', each with several short, easier levels each. This will make the game more manageable, I think, and more fun too.
You'll also be able to travel around a sort of 'world map' between the worlds; you'd fly around in Arkus' ship exploring sectors of space and finding loot or optional levels; it'd be sort of like the sea in Zelda:Wind Waker.
I'll work on this after MARDEK 3 is released.
(I've yet to finalise a title. Ideas like 'Raider - Complete', 'Raider - Saga', 'Raider Adventures', and 'Raider: The Adventures of Arkus Zei' come to mind...)

*sigh* A pity. I honestly adored Raider, and found it incredibly fun. Perhaps you just marketed it to the wrong audience? The Cave Story/La Mulana types would eat it up.

You say you're going to make it easier. Please not too much easier - raider was only a little bit harder than it should have been.
By the way, it sounds really great and brilliant in pretty much every possible way, so please make it soon.

I never got really that into playing raider, (maybe it was because one of the move keys got stuck and kept getting me killed...) but this seems like a good game. it will probably take a while to program though :P but then again, im pretty sure alot of things would take a long time to program.
(Ive never programed more then a minute long movie thing lol)

the thing im most excited about is the world map thing. ive always wanted to fly around in a space ship and make things explode, but starfox 64 was one of the only good games that actually allowed me to do that, and my N64 is broken... :(

I found the idea of this game particularly interesting,because it would be a more roaming and in-depth game,almost like an RPG,except it's not-it's a platformer!!! I really like the idea of this game and look forward to it's eventual or maybe not at all release.

Please don't make the games too much easier. I enjoy learning the maps and overcoming the challenges. Many games recently released are very easy to beat and don't provide as much fun as they could with more of a challenge. I also really enjoy the exploration aspect of the game, so I wouldn't want the areas to be shortened. It's your choice in the end, but I love the amount of effort and time put into your games. Either way, I will still enjoy it, and I look forward to it.

Sorry, let me expand on that. You see, I think that Raider is a bit too hard and I always get stuck at a certain point. I am stuck there forever because I simply do not have the skill to beat those stages. So, am I glad to hear that you're going to make them easier! And more fun too! Can't wait and keep up the good work, Pseudolonewolf!

I personally think that Raider: The Adventures of Arkus Zei' sounds pretty epic. Also I really like the raider series. It brings me back to when I played the original metroid for the NES. obviously there are alot of differences but that same kinda feel. Exploring, shooting and jumping. Simple but awesome.

Why not just call it Raider? Others might disagree, but I say that no subtitle is needed.

Largely because I personally want a subtitle due to the way I categorise my games in my mind, or on my site, or things like that. A subtitle is part of my 'vision' for what I want of the game, you could say, even if I can't decide what it is yet.

Er...what? Can you repeat that slightly less cryptically, please? It doesn't make any sense.
