Evil Australians : New game for the Ludum Retro

Post by gameblabla » Thu Feb 02, 2017 6:55 pm

Here's my first original release in about 4 years : Evil Australians !

Image

Evil Australians is a small game i made for the 3DO, Dreamcast and PCs.
It's a platforming arena game made from scratch with the help of my own library, Gameblabla's Wrapper.
The game has several missions and in each mission, you are stuck in an arena where
you must defeat all the remaining enemies.
To defeat the enemies, you have a rapid-fire gun that can shoot several bullets at the same time.
There are 4 missions in total.

Story
John, living in Australia, is an avid video game collector.
However, he learns from the news that the Australian government is soon going to ban video games.
John became furious :
he grabs his weapons and swears vengeance on the government.

However 7 years ago,
the government collected his own DNA as part of a secret project.
This secret project allowed the government to steal DNAs from all the aussies.
The Government learned of John's plan and they used his DNA to build an entire clone army of himself.

John is now facing an entire army of himself,
will he make it alive and finally kill the law ?

Hey I replied on the DC Talk forum, but thought I'd copy my reply here too.

Cool little game - I made an SD Iso image to try it. There were some graphics problems though, such as a persistent blue vertical line on the right side of the screen and some flickering on the platforms. Not sure if that's due to it being an SD Iso image or a bug?

I bought some CDs and i tried my game on my DC over Composite video.
The game works fine as of latest fine but it is oddly enough not displayed properly.
It could be my Samsung TV, as i had this issue popping up on some official DC games as well.
Use SCART or VGA if you can.

Discard this, it was an issue with my TV

Bump, again.
I realised that the dreamcast port was not working properly, including sound effects not playing.
I fixed that and added music to the game. No new levels though.
You can download the new build in the very first post.
