After a few painstaking days of programming and testing, I have three minigames completed. They're part of a carnival at the royal city of my world. These will be in the demo comng out in a few weeks, I just want to see what people think of my ideas and the presentation so far. Thanks for watching!

OK, but is anyone going to talk about those adorable trees?

Nice minigames! It looks very professional.

Very cool minigames indead. Is the fun house route a fixed one or does it vary with some random elements?

Haha! And those talking and dancing trees are scattered all over, people are used to them!

Thanks so much!

Thank you! None of the tunnels are completely random - I want people to figure out a pathway to the mirror room, which has three entrances and multiple ways to reach them. The fireballs each kick you back to a different room, too. That first, looping room is also nine duplicate exits that take you all over, with only subtle differences in the junk around them, and five ways to get in there that look alike but aren't. So it'll seem pretty random I think

I'll probably add a high score system with better prizes for 3rd, 2nd, & 1st, and NPCs already holding the places - little sidequest to beat them all. So in the funhouse's case, you get a big reward for figuring out the quickest route!

I love that way of portraying difficulty in the first one, that's some high quality creativity there.
Also they seem really fun by themselves. A good sign for a minigame indeed.

Thanks so much! That IS a good sign then - was planning about 12 minigames with difficulty levels (every town and farm will have a game) and a quest to beat every level of each

I really love those mini games! Very creative and I like that you added difficulties in the first one. I'm trying to make mini games myself, but I'm honestly not very good at it lol. Looking forward to your demo, I will definitely play it!

I'm usually like, naah, minigames, but orb runner looks pretty fun! Funhouse just looks confusing, I can totally see myself rage quitting after, like, two tries. :kaoswt:

Looks pretty neat!
I can see your dedication to making this, especially the funhouse.
I was skeptical at first, but this has potential.

If you plan to improve or add more levels, better start making the base template for each feature.
It will be a pain to do them manually in the future and those templates will help you in long run.

Oh thanks a lot! They will all have difficulty levels once the demo is ready, they just need a bit more work when I can get to it

Aye yeah, usually I don't care for minigames much either, wanted to make sure mine have a lot of movement and action, though the funhouse is really just a frustrating, timed dungeon - not for everyone, but I'll add difficulty levels to it, too

Well thanks very much! That funhouse did take more effort than I was expecting - it was the biggest inspiration for the song, too, since I was picturing running around the funhouse when I put it together.

Yeah, I'm using common events for some minigame things, and a map with backups and space to experiment. I also want one of my farm games ready for the demo, which'll be picking different types of vegetables as they grow around a maze; I can use orb runner as a template to make the veges appear.

Next big thing is a minecart ride, which I believe I can create as planned, but haven't started quite yet

They're more Alundra-like dungeons, mini-games in my mind are like the casinos in Tales Of games or skiing in Ape Escape.

I was wondering where the assets are from?

very cool. i feel like the easy modes for them should be designed more for people that dont like sprinting. im pretty sure that for most of us the sprinting isnt an issue, but i also know some people that love retro style games but have issues with how touchy the sprinting can be. (my mom for example would love that fun house maze but despises sprinting.)

Hmm, I haven't seen Alundra before, just looked up some maps and they're similar to my dungeon designs, yeah.

All the assets in this one are from the game or recolours I did. I think the only original stuff I made here is the spinning gears and wheeled chests

Ah, you're right, I should have more games with less sprints. Guess I went with my more active games first, but there's some slower minigames planned, like some casino games, and a minecart ride where you just guide it left and right. I'm going to add difficulty levels to the funhouse too, with the easy mode removing the fast obstacles (and maybe hard will have a spotlight)

Finally got my website fixed and the security sorted so it's been a productive day. Can I go to sleep now? I mean... I don't need to work right?
It's always a good idea to refresh yourself on what your plugins do. I'm working on a map with opening walls, and I was about to tear my hair out over how much image editing and hand-constructing of autotiles I'd have to do, when I looked again and saw @Shaz 's Tile Changer could copy areas from another map.
"sorry it took me so long to respond" - can we please agree not to say that anymore unless it actually took a long time?! (Like 36hrs at least) I mean, I'm running out of funny responses here xD
Ugh... 4:53AM over here and I can't sleep so why not just game make.
I just love the MV feature that allows you to create your own animations!
