ITD++: Eldritch Abomination, first animation test.

So I started work again on the Eldritch Abomination, whose file has been languishing in my HDD for a while, and I made this first animation test:
It's still lacking a lot of shading, but I thought it'd be better if I first tested if the shapes animated properly.

ITD++ : Making a proper menu screen III

Well, this is starting to be something.

I've developed a simple bitmap ASCII font in the vein of Fixedsys, in three sizes: 8x16,16x32, and 32x64. At first I thought that a 8x12/16x24/32x48 (that's a 2x3 ratio) would look better, but it gave me issues with lining up the bottom of uppercase and lowercase characters...

Anyways, I've started using the biggest font size, and adding some prettying up to the menu elements:

The smaller the font, the more satisfied I am with it... anyways, this is somewhat promising.

...Carol-Anne, the beast in me, so here it comes, here it comes, reaching out somewhere from inside, your teee-veeeeeeee!!! % D

ITD++ : Making a proper menu screen II

Second iteration of the main menu sketch

I came up with a placeholder custom font, and I'm polishing this screen's elements

ITD++ : Making a proper menu screen.

Current main menu screen for ITD++ is like this:

Fugly, rite? It's one of the things players have been giving (bad) feedback about, so we need another one. Something like this:

Owait that's fugly too. Note to self:
-Not in B/W
-Fleshed out
-With actual pixels,
-In different resolutions.
But you get the idea. In truth it should be moar liek dis:

I don't know what the fuck to do to make the same background in different resolutions. Oh well, I'll come up with something.

Annual Roguelike Release party



Into the Dungeon ++ and Fall from Heaven the roguelike have been just released!!

Fall from Heaven is a roguelike (and shooting for major roguelike, at that!) by Jolly Roger, with graphics by GoodSir and me. It takes the background from Fall from Heaven I and II, critically acclaimed mods for Civilization games.

You can check it's release thread at Temple of the Roguelike here, and it's article at the RogueBasin wiki here.

Into the Dungeon ++ is a more light roguelike, and is less developed, but on the good side that should make it much more easy to get into the game. And it's animated! I'd say ITD++ is much much more newcomer-friendly than FFHtR.

Programmer and Head Dev for ITD++ is 7h30n, I'm the pixel guy, and it's got an INDESCRIBABLY AWESOME original soundtrack by Foox.

You can check it's release thread at Temple of the Roguelike here, and it's article at the RogueBsain wiki here.
