Driller kNight
« on: April 01, 2017, 09:51:33 pm »
Here is the newest release of Driller kNight!
I have added a huge amount of content since my last release. Eight new units and several new buildings have been added. Combat has been added to the game and giant monsters made of rock have come to destroy your base and slugs are sliding in to drain power from buildings! A story has been added to the beginning of each level and a conclusion at the end of each level. Each unit and building has a range of tasks and many have special abilities. The settings menu is well developed and allows frameskip for faster games, greyscale tuning, difficulty adjustment and more. The game takes about 10 hours to complete, but 100% completion takes more than 40 hours. It still will not run on an 83+ however.  :-\
There are 2 addons, Godmode and RandomLevels which I will release on August 19 and September 2. These add on to the original game and allow for many fun new games but aren't required to play.

Nice to see another axe game - havent seen one in ages :D
Are you using runer112's greylib? Also when you scroll, you see those jagged lines in the greyscale when scrolling? I would recommend temporarily disabling greyscale when scrolling, this would fix those artifacts, and would also make scrolling faster. (I do this in <shameless plug>lazer 2</shameless plug>

I think this is why more people (other than me) needs to reply to project threads. :P I used to do so regularly but real life and projects took their toll on my activity >.< (in fact I'm probably done with calc programming entirely)

I am continuing to work on Driller kNight after a short break. The game is not very stable currently. Here is a list of added features:
Combat! Monsters now appear and will become more common and powerful the more resources you have.
Many new units inducing ones dedicated to the new role of fighter/defender.
3 new buildings, two for monster defense and one for upgrading units.
Units can be upgraded infinitely with each upgrade becoming more expensive.
The power system has been reworked to make more sense.
Reworked all AIs to make them a lot smarter.
Expanded settings menu with options like difficulty, fast forward and pacifist mode.
Units now cost ore in addition to crystals so there is no giant pile up of ore late game.
Added godmode for debugging or boredom.
Units now have shields that recharge so that workers no longer have the same health as the most powerful units.
Added new unit class - epic. The progression now goes, Worker - Small units - Large units - Epic units.
Lazer units like the drill walker now occasionally fire a very powerful lazer to defend themselves.
Added control groups. You can assign a unit to a number and when you press that number, all units in that group are selected.
Changed the cursor slightly to make it easier to use.

That is all. I am going to keep working on the game regardless of any interest because I really enjoy working on it. I don't know when it will be done. Probably not for a long time because summer is coming up and I won't have as much time to work on it.

I probably won't be working on Driller kNight for a while. I am on summer break and have vacation coming up. I will be inactive in the forum in general for 2-3 weeks.  :(

I'm glad to see there were updates, though. Bave a good break. I hope your summer break ending in 2-3 weeks doesn't mean school starts right afterward O.O

I'm back!
There are few things left to do in the game engine - mostly small tweaks and balance issues.
Unfortunately, I have to redo all 20 levels which will be a real pain.
Things left to do:
Create all the levels. :P
Add a way to beat the levels. (this is easier than it sounds)
Various balance fixes.
As many speed optimizations as I can find.

I can post a beta of the game if anyone is actually interested in trying it.

Also that seems to be a lot of work to redo all 20 levels from scratch x.x

aaargh, redoing all levels? D: But why? D:
Did you lose the effort? Or did major changes to the game engine and adapting the level data would be more work than redoing them?  :ninja:

I changed all the internal ID's so that there is no chance of compatible maps. I also added many new tiles and completely redid all the buildings. It would be just as easy to create new maps as to try to adapt the old ones.
