Synopsis


You play as Pingu, a clay penguin that has some weird abilities at his disposal. Right from the start of the game you can go wherever you please, at least that is the goal, making the player feel free and do what he wants to do first, while unlocking some features and areas as you progress in the main storyline.


Pingu finds some weird sh** along the way, enemies, allies, and more to discover in this weird world he is in.


As the story progresses, Pingu goes through hell to save himself and those he cares for. Will he make it? Or will your decisions make it worse?



Features


As mentioned above, I want the game to feel like you are free to go where you want, like Grand Theft Auto of course, with places to go to and different activities to earn money to become rich and do what you please. Right now, the demo has features such as

  • A battle arena where you can fight hordes of enemies to earn money and experience, plus you can upgrade many stuff such as attack, defense and has 3 different modes right now
  • A casino where you can wager your money in 3 different games such as a dice rolling game, rock paper scissors and a new one, mystery chest opening, which can contain rare items and weapons (such as a Golden gun) not found anywhere else, also a nasty surprise you might not want to find
  • Police chases on foot when you commit crimes such as killing npcs, happens randomly, however if you pull out your gun and shoot at someone with it, they will chase you, 100%
  • A cheat code system that has some hidden cheats and one hidden event code that will be given to you at the end of the demo missions
  • 1 Side mission, 3 Main story missions
  • NPC recruiting! With random stats and names (if they die, they are gone forever, if they leave the party you can recruit them again near your safehouse)
  • Timed-attacks action command turn combat, making the game not easy for everyone, rewarding for those who time it well, punishing for those who don't
  • Custom graphics that are animated during cutscenes and certain moments (I made plenty animations for different graphics, which means you won't see 2 static sprites talking to each other most of the time)
  • Crazy missions and eventing, no really, I took the time to make them as unexpected as possible and refreshing from your average RPG maker game
  • Many known videogame and anime songs
  • Crazy and funny? sound effects
  • Custom animations for all items and skills, when you miss and when you hit!
  • Pixel Movement and Jumping
  • Zooming in and out feature, also used in cutscenes to make them look better
  • NPCs all say something different, you can talk to them multiple times and will say something different, you can also make them mad, fight them, and some have small requests
     

I think I went a little too deep with the features and maybe I missed a few more, as you can tell this is quite a big project.

Hey dude, 


So it's been a few days, played your game on and off a few times. Here's what I took from it,


Pros


-That titlescreen


-That soundtrack (The copyright version of course, made me want to play scott pilgrim and san adreas and gave me good feels. The non-copyright version made me want to drink bleach however)


-I like the battle system a lot it reminds me of Legend of Dragoon
-FTHE POLICE (NOOT NOOT)
-Really like how you handle the zomming in and out feature in this game
-Rock Paper scissors made me rich as hell (if only life were like that)
-The multiple personality of pingu is great, with the vulgar one being my fave


-Saying rude **** to NPC's and then running from them when they want to fight is funny to me for some reason. Good job on that


-That fricking dialogue is 10/10


-Doge and other illustrious meme cameos
-Missions have a nice little bit of variety that you don't always see in RM games


-when Pingu noots his little mouth animates, which isn't a big deal, but more so a nice little touch I like


-The chicken is homie of the year


Cons:
- The difficulty can be super unforgiving at some parts, enemies can sometimes seem to output more damage than you can do


-I might not be doing it right, but the press A combat system seems a little lagged


-The non-copyrighted version of the music (this isn't really a bad thing, but damn it made me miss the copy righted version music lol) 


-Game can be a bit unclear as to where to go or what to do next at times


-Getting hit by cars seems to kill you? I got stuck in the road and couldn't move after getting hit by a car once so I assumed that's why? It would be a nice touch to add wasted or something to show I'm dead. It might've just been a glitch though.


I wish I had more time to sit down and play, but I think you're on to something with what you have. Let me know when you have a full release I need to know what happens next lol

Thanks for that (really funny) review, it's weird no one has encountered that laggy A in combat, you maaay have done it wrong or the game was indeed lagging on your end, and also you are supposed to get a wasted screen after you are hit by a car, weird bug that I will look into, can you mention which car exactly it was? I tested and they worked fine.  


Also, yes the difficulty isn't exactly fair sometimes, but if you know what to do (and sometimes lucky) it can be pretty easy, I can add an easy mode if that bothers you too much.

Your review motivates me to keep going hard at it, appreciate it <3 I will for sure finish this game and have around 30 missions and plenty more places to explore and things to do. It's a big game, and I want it to be amazing in every aspect.

You're doing great so far, I'm glad that motivated you and made you want to finish it up. It has sooo much potential if you see it through. The lag thing I'm not sure, and the difficulty thing definitely wasn't game breaking, but just something I noticed. With those enemies that were kicking my **** in I got past them eventually. So only add difficult options if you feel that's the right move. 

As for the car thing, it only happened once (avoided getting hit by cars like crazy after that), it was during the mission with the chicken homie right after you see him Get hit by the car It's that white car on that map that did it.

I had a dream where it was Friday, and what happened in the dream was irrelevant, because I woke up and it's not Friday, so I'm sad.
edit: third time's the charm? some graphic text I whipped up that I like for the mid-game intertitle, now with all of the actual letters in the stupid damn words I was trying to spell :uswt2:

I love it when a plan comes together, and especially when Ruby decides to work with me when I decide to code. :kaopride:
