TTNABIWTABITTI (Things That Nobody Asked But I Want To Answer Because I Think They’re Important
- “I pressed the fullscreen button and it broke.”
I did not program in fullscreen support and I don’t have time to. Sorry! Just refresh the page.
- “What game engine?”
My own with SDL2 and various libraries, written in C.
- “Ummm, only three enemies? Where’s the heckin’ contenterino, dude? ”
Much of my inspiration for this game was from a game like Doom where there’s only so many enemies, but because they all fill their own roles there’s EMERGENT GAMEPLAY that comes out of it. And technically there’s a fourth enemy. Just hit Wave 9 and you’ll understand.
I’m sure I could’ve thought up more enemies but I programmed this game terribly inefficiently and to be in-line with the other enemies I would have to rewrite them and it’d be more time wasted. Lessons learned for later. Also I came late to the jam and had nine days to make it so
- “Ummmmmmmmm, why is the perspective so bad for the sprites? And her hands in that one cutscene? Yikes!! ”
I tried my best and had to draw some of this stuff while putting an all nighter so sorry
- “Why aren’t the cutscenes/endings in color or so sketchy?”
Time. Plus I think my sketches tend to be better than my rendered works so.
- “Why do some things draw on top of each other weirdly?”
I am a terrible programmer and I should’ve implemented a system where entites are drawn in a sensible queue based on their Y position on the screen. I did not. But if I did want to fix it I don’t have much time.
- “Can I have your permission to use th-”
Yes. Very much yes. The software for this game is under the GNU GPLv3, and all the art is public domain (Creative Commons Zero), well except for one font but it’s still free as in freedom, so yeah. Do WHATEVER you want with this (except make the code proprietary that’s cringe). Attribution is appreciated ofc but I’m not one to care about that too much. Stream it, mod it, make cool fanart (do this pls) whatever. You can actually, genuinely, TRULY own my video game. Revolutionary.
- “Why do the sprites/enemy design look so much like Binding of Isaac’s?”
Easy to sprite and I like the style. Simple as!
- “Why does the intro music sound eerily similar to ‘More Gun’ from TF2?”
It’s a LEGALLY DISTINCT version of More Gun, I’ll tell you what. When prompted about the music I wanted for it, the composer said he’d just would make a bootleg version of More Gun, so that’s on him. It works, though!
- “How is New Game+ handled?”
After clearing Wave 10 and getting an ending, you’ll be prompted to exit your run and go to results or continue with New Game+. Enemies will be faster and have more health, but you’ll get more cash. I have not tested this too much and there are two endings pretty much locked to it, so better get grinding!
- “Calamity Cobra is cute! CUTE!!”
Nobody has said this YET as of writing this but if you do you are a patrician. I love fat snake women so much so that’s why I made a game about one. She has a REAL name, you know…maybe keep playing to find out!
Thanks, and have fun!
