Stencyl Jam 2012 May. 1st, 2012 @ 12:47 PM Reply

This is the official discussion thread for Stencyl Jam 2012.

If you want to discuss your game in progress or team up with users who could help you with art and sound, this thread is the place to do it! You can share works in progress on dump or simply ask questions about things that are giving you a hard time - everyone can help each other.

I realize the Collaboration forum isn't the most perfect place for this but I didn't want to rush to launch a new forum dedicated to Stencyl since we rushed into some other game development forums that have been light on use. This is more like a Stencyl Lounge, at least for the duration of the Stencyl Jam!

Stencyl Jam 2012


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

I'll try this out. I downloaded stencyl a while ago but haven't really tried it out yet so this'll be a good learning experience. It seems a little more user friendly than TGF2.

Looking for an experienced stencyler. I create game art(tiles, sprites and BGs) and I know how to use stencyl, but my programming specifics and level design skills aren't very refined. See my gallery & msg me if interested. I'm also interested in combining the entry for robot day.

Just in case... It's not forbidden to use a game which was previously started, is it? I haven't seen anything about that in rules.

I mean, I started some project previously, then suspended it, but I'd like to use the concept anyway (I'll probably use rewritten and easier to use logic, but dialogues would be probably the same). Can I do so? O.o'

I've actually been planning on creating my first game recently, and I wanted it to be huge. It's based on the book "1984" except takes place 11 years after and is called "1995". I didn't really consider making this a flash game, I went straight for using some connections of mine to get the big deal softwares like Maya and I was gonna have another friend do all the concept art and help me out with the texturing since I suck at that stuff.

I have a bunch of ideas and plans for the game already, but I don't actually know what the story should be. I know I want it to be a new protagonist and that it will be multiple endings and that the basic concept behind it is that this character actually tries to incite a rebellion. It would be up to the player to determine how they want to go about that, whether by quietness and stealth or by outward force. But I don't actually know what that would include, or even if the best ending should be a "happy" one (I'm kinda leaning towards a somewhat depressing/meh ending for the best and it gets progressively worse).

So, what does that have to do with anything here? Well I figure the best way to flush out these details is to start out basic with a flash game to skip the big and epic graphics and detailed game mechanics to focus on general story and get some feedback. I also managed to convince an unrelated group I'm in to assist me and we can make it a type of publicity stunt and that the group would be in the credits. As for now, does anyone that doesn't look at this and go TL;DR mind offering some ideas? Remember, I'm trying to remain as faithful to the book as possible. I got this idea writing a massive research paper on it so I want to keep the details and major themes as consistent as I can. However there is some room for creative liberties especially since it's 11 years later.

Also, if you want to contribute more than ideas and get your hands dirty in someone else's project, then feel free to try and persuade me what you can do to help. I'll especially be looking for musicians I guess since the whole thing will be very strong on atmosphere. Artists, writers, voice actors (maybe), and actual game makers who want to partake in the contest but don't have ideas of their own are welcome to apply as well as anyone who thinks that they have something unique to bring to the table.

Thanks for any ideas/feedback and you're welcome to pm me!

This actually sounds fun. I can get a little bit of practice with some coding in the process if I actually decide to create a custom behavior from code. In the meantime, this will do.

Yes, you can enter a game that was already in-progress!

Im assuming its okay but il ask anyways. Not that anyone would be able to tell (I think...) but would making a game fully in code & not using their code blocks thing at all be within the bounds of the contest. Essentially, Stencyl is a framework on top of Flixel, so as long as you use that framework/compile with Stencyl it is within the contest bounds?

Sorry if this is a stupid question, just dont want to start a game to find out it doesn't qualify for this reason.
