Re: Intrepid Izzy Kickstarter launched!

MetaFox: Thanks for the advice, but I have very little faith in online advertising. Yours is the first positive story I've ever heard about it. Also, facebook keeps telling me to advertise in order to reach "more people in South Holland" or similar irrelevant demographics. It doesn't inspire confid...

Re: Intrepid Izzy Kickstarter launched!

Thanks, mankrip!

I think we already have some very nice rewards to offer, and there is plenty of reason to back the project. The key to success is to get more people to know about it. I'm afraid the addition of extra rewards will likely do very little to that effect.

Re: Intrepid Izzy Kickstarter launched!

Thanks hilltopper06! 1.) Some of the 60fps footage that I uploaded myself seemed to have frame rate drops when played on YouTube, so it could also be a problem with YouTube's transcoding. I do know of one instance where the Dreamcast fails to maintain 60fps, though, which is during fade ins/outs. Bu...

Thanks MetaFox! I've wanted to make a game that combines different genres for a long time, and it works really well!

Re: Intrepid Izzy Kickstarter launched!

Thanks everyone! Question: Couldn't the Dreamcast version include a Windows port of the game's engine, to be also playable on PCs? The DC version's assets are in lower resolution, so this shouldn't hurt sales of the PC Steam version for people who prefer to play the game at higher resolutions. And t...

Intrepid Izzy Kickstarter launched!

Hello everyone! We've launched the Kickstarter for our platform adventure game Intrepid Izzy today! 5xXTdxArqS4 Intrepid Izzy is a combination of many things: multiple genres (platformer, adventure, beat 'em up), retro and modern graphics, well-known and never-before-seen gameplay elements... And as...

Re: Senile Team preparing to announce new game

I wouldn't drop a bunch of lines just to get to a 16:9 resolution. That's tens of thousands of pixels lost. People that are still on Dreamcast and are your target market know the limitations. Get as much resolution as you can for the game. I already am getting as much resolution as I realistically ...

Re: Senile Team preparing to announce new game

Thank you WingMantis! As someone who owned a widescreen TV even back in the day when the Dreamcast was still on the shelves, its lack of widescreen support has irked me longer than most. For 3D games, adding widescreen support is incredibly trivial. Literally a matter of changing just a single numbe...

I did more than toy around with it, but found that it has some disadvantages:
1. AFAIK, 8888 palettes are stored in the global palette buffer, which can accomodate only a very limited number of such palettes.
2. It doesn't render as fast as 1555.

Re: Senile Team preparing to announce new game

Very little use was made of scaling and rotation. Almost all animations are pre-rendered. Even so, the memory footprint is still quite low thanks to efficient data structures and texture compression. The difference between the DC and PC versions is purely visual. To be precise: PC Resolution: 1280x7...

Re: Senile Team preparing to announce new game

Looks very polished! Regarding the second video, do you have a lot of vertical sections? Something I always hate about sidescrollers is required leaps of faith but the camera doesn't show where I'll land and there might be a hole so I die. Maybe the camera could go a little lower in anticipation of...

Then again, I bring good tidings! I have recorded some gifs today. They are quite heavy, so in an effort to spare users with low bandwidth I've put them in spoiler tags.

Well, then you're in luck! :D
