Melody's Escape
Melody's Escape: New Video!
April 16, 2013 - Loïc



Heya! :)

I've been quiet for the past few weeks, so here's an update about the game, with a new video and new screenshots.

  • New animations. I've changed/fixed most animations (especially the roll and jumps) that didn't feel right, now they are much smoother and have some more "weight" to them. I've also added smooth transitions between movement animations for each intensity changes.

  • Upgraded the music engine to supports low BPMs (60 to 80) songs (which are mostly calm/sad songs). I've re-used the same song as in my last video to demonstrate the lower tempo speed, hence the easier gameplay. The engine now supports songs from 60 to 180BPM (in 4/4 timing), providing even better overall accuracy.

  • A new background, the city (which still needs to be animated to react to the music). The game will have a different background for each intensity mode, the city is only one of four.

  • Changed/added visual clues to be something else than just colors, which improves reactivity and also allows colorblind people to play the game. Colors can also be edited in the game settings, should you want to change them.

I'm now concentrating on the last intensity mode, flying, which isn't up to par with my vision yet (and hence not shown in the video).

Thanks for all your support and constructive criticism!

Failure gives you grey hairs at the moment, and break your point streak. It does not force you to restart the level, but failing "solid" obstacles will stun you for some time.

Out of curiousity, how does failures look or operate? I have not seen any in your videos since I've began following this game.

I'm glad that this is still going. I thought it died after no updates, so now that it's alive again, how far are you into completing it? I really want to play this game since it I am interested in it. :)

My first response was before I even saw the video, but now that I have, please finish this game ASAP so I can buy it and play it! Looks so damn awesome! The city background looks great as do the other improvements! Can't wait!
