Announcement! New game by me. Enceladus

Post by Ice Cream Jonsey » Tue Oct 01, 2019 1:37 pm

The https://ifcomp.org is in full effect! Download all the games and play 'em! There's a really large number of games this year. I am on an author's forum and been reading and mingling and all the authors there seem like really cool people.

In addition, let me link everyone to the game I made. It's called Enceladus. It is written in Hugo. I would call it a short science fiction comedy. My goal is to make it the best jumping on point for my style of game. There aren't "graphics" really, but one graphic comes up if you select the "About this Game" mode in either the title screen or the credits.

The link to Enceladus is here: https://ifcomp.org/ballot?alphabetize=1#entry-2045 where you can download it. It includes the Windows interpreter and instructions on where to download Hugor for Linux and the Mac.

I'll put a link up for the online Hugo site later tonight.

Hope you all get a chance to play it, let me know what you think.

Is this the Enceladus thread or the IFComp thread? I don't wanna gunk up your announcement with non-related IFComp comments.

So far I have played two IFComp 2019 games: Enceladus and The House on Sycamore Lane.

All great reviews, but the third one was my favorite. Why is it anonymous?

That person has a Twitter account. But I don't know who they are. They have chosen anonymity in a world where people Instagram their breakfast.

Actually, people don't do that much any more, which is kind of sad in a way.

Some more ... this is mostly to keep myself straight on these:

https://wisprabbit.wordpress.com/2019/1 ... b-sherwin/
https://quantumsurvivor.wordpress.com/2 ... ws-part-2/

I had a few goals in making Enceladus - I wanted there to be no bugs (thanks to you testers for that one), I wanted people to not be frustrated, I wanted it to be a quick game where you were always moving onto the next thing. I haven't had to do a during-the-comp bug fix (yet?) which makes me very happy, although there is an extra comma that I need in one spot and I didn't credit Bryan B., so a post-comp version will exist.

I think for the next one, whether that is Cyberganked or something else, 100% implementation of all first-level scenery is gonna be a goal.

Every single review of your game I've read, I've found myself reading and nodding along, agreeing with everything they said. I may have liked it more or less than some of them (definitely more than that last guy), but if there was an award for the Best Reviewed Game, you're a shoo-in.

What is that sound? Oh yeah, it's you, sucking up to Robb. Or you, slurping up to Mr. Ice Cream.

(Sorry, I just couldn't resist!)

Can I have a quick word, Paul? In the other room?

  1. What other room?
  2. I really have less than zero interest in what you have to say.
  3. I used to have a care but I forgot and led it on my right foot. Now I don't have a care in the world.

That's very hurtful, Paul.
