A Pirates Life Dizzy [PROGRESS THREAD]

Post by Colin » Tue Nov 16, 2010 8:55 pm

Time to do a proper progress thread

A Pirates Life: Dizzy
I expect to release it 4th Jan 2011

Story:Life's been pretty uneventful lately, for the all yolkfolks. That was until the Day of Daisy's birthday.
Dizzy is under orders to keep himself clean for the party. The gift is wrapped. The time had arrived to leave.
Little did Dizzy know that in a few short minutes, would he believe he would be swashbuckling his way
through time, pirates and folk that look strangely familiar?!
Can you help Dizzy find his way back home to his own time. He doesn't want to ruin Daisy's party.

It's about 75% complete so far. As usual, it's full of bugs at the moment!

I've been helping to test this. Trust me, it's even better to play than it is to look at. Utterly stunning, and graphically miles above any other DizzyAGE game.

Mark the 4th Jan 2011 down in your diary. You won't be disappointed.

Colin looks mightily impressive as always, your screenshots always look remarkable, best you get to see & always a joy to see what creativity youve come up with this time. The lighting effects are fantastic, dunno how you manage to create that in the map with the different radiating colours but I love that :v2_dizzy_clapping:

Gonna be a few games released in January :p

yes, it's a nice simple effect. I use it a hell of a lot in different ways in the game. I will need a couple of other people to test it, when i'm nearer to finishing
