Developing a game with Wick Editor!

651 Views | 30 Replies
New Topic Respond to this Topic

I currently making a game centered around Wick Editor using, well, Wick Editor. It's obviously looks terrible since I am using a trackpad instead of my iPad (which helps me produce WAY better art), but some criticism HOPEFULLY would slightly help. It's currently on itch.io and can only be accessed via a link. It's completion is very unlikely. But if it does end up getting completed then I'll upload the game here on Newgrounds (and then it'll probably get blammed or get low ratings).

Additional information’s available on the game page itself.


Here's the link:

Please give some criticism and help. I really need it.


I will be adding devlogs here as the development of the game progresses.

v0.05

It’s the first version of the game and it’s pretty crap! The first test (another name for minigames in the context of the game) is practically complete although I MAY have to update graphics eventually.

v0.075

Added in the character and its code for the 2nd test (which is supposed to have top-down movement).

v0.079

I made a Newgrounds Preview of the game.

https://www.newgrounds.com/projects/games/1576975/preview


This update features the following:

  • 60 FPS
  • Half-working collision and a background for the 2nd test.

So yeah, not much really.

I'm planning to change the theme of the game. It'll take quite the while. I'll have to change the assets and make them look more polished. Medibang Paint'll probably do the job. And there's an exam coming next week which'll last 2 weeks and which I'll have to study for. I'll try to take my time and pump out another [hopefully decent] update sooner or later.

v0.0799

  • Small code changes for a slightly smoother experience.
  • Small aesthetic changes to the 2nd test.
  • Got rid of unnecessary objects not on the main screen.
  • The unintentionally hidden text on the Continue Dialogue Button (yes that's what it's called) in the 1st test has been removed.

If you wanna give any criticism, then go here. I wanna keep things in order here.


Here's the link:

[The Newgrounds Preview will be updated more often than the itch.io version since Newgrounds is my main focus. So please don't play the itch.io version.]

v0.082

  • Framerate reduced to 36 FPS to make the 'Wick eating a bread' animation look a bit more comprehendible. Don't worry, nothing was sacrificed.
  • Title screen and Death screen are a bit more animated.
  • More facial expressions in the 1st test.
  • Luca Damasco.

Work on the 2nd room in the 2nd test will start on the next update.

THE itch.io VERSION WILL STILL GET FREQUENT UPDATES AS WELL!
I decided so as itch.io is a platform practically FOR indie games and I love it for that, which is why it’ll also be updated frequently.

Use (textName).textContent

I think that will work.

EDIT: NOPE NVM

v0.0841

I've noticed that whenever you press the UP and DOWN keys, the website immediately scrolls down. As a [hopefully temporary] fix, I've added in two more control styles:

For normal folks:

..W

A S D

For the mad:

...8

4 5 6

I would like to know how to fix this issue. If you have any suggestions, please leave them here.

v0.085

  • Added in dialogue functionality. Click on anything interactive and a dialogue box will appear and then disappear.
  • Changed the 'Wick eating a bread' scene a bit.

I expect v0.1x to be out by next month. Anyways, try to have fun!

I think I should stop releasing updates everyday. I want the rest of the game to be a surprise which
is why the next update is gonna take a while, so please be patient.

I will still be releasing Dev. Notes on how the development of the game is going. I won't be
revealing much though.

Anyways, please keep on existing.

Work on the game is slowing down due to examinations currently taking place, although my
interest in completing the project still remains. I am currently working on ways to squeeze the
first test in just one frame (well, the gameplay part anyways). Apart from that, development is
going well, if not a bit slower than usual.

Currently working on squeezing the 1st test in one frame. Just implemented a floating
animation for Wick in the 2nd test. Am planning to add a hit box to the character soon.

Y'know what? Screw it! I'm releasing updates on a weekly basis now (I know, pretty pathetic, but I'm
really damn impatient when it comes to releasing stuff so sue me)!

v0.09

  • A new arcade room.
  • A minigame.

This one definitely needs a LOT of polishing, but I think it can be done.

It’s not a real person or team (yet), just an account I made to manage projects.

Exams are coming up so no updates for about two weeks are so.
Also here are my plans for this game:
* There will be only three arcade machines in the arcade room.
* The end be a short minigame related to bread.
* This game will be tiny when finished (since this WAS made to test the waters).
* I’ll be moving to HaxeFlixel (or any other 2D game engine) for bigger projects although I’ll
  still be using it for animations and will promote it.
* This game’ll definitely get blammed.
* @Team-TazerKettle left the chat.

Play the Alpha Version Now!

So, how’s your day going?
