Dev and/or shill here, ask me anything.

I remember playing the demo for this a while back.

If I was any good at Sonic games, I would be excited. It's like a Genesis Sonic game made by Treasure. Beyond the DeviantArt-tier character design is some pretty good gameplay. I'd play it.

It's about freedom planet

I just want everyone to notice the large gaps in time between almost every reply in this thread.

Right now just Steam and I think standalone PC (no DRM), and there's talk of Android and Vita porting. We would have gone for consoles and whatnot but the middleware (CF2.5) isn't capable of it (yet... maybe never, hopefully someday though).
>>
>>254123408
How many levels does each character get? I heard that the game has just as many levels as Sonic 3 & Knuckles in total.

I've been ready for two fucking days let's go.

>>254117963
yes I am buying it and I don't give a FUCK what you think and I'll probably enjoy it like a good version of Sonic Adventure 2D with original story and characters

>>254124010
I don't know, it's not out yet. Why don't you just emulate some Sonic games
>>
>>254123408
Are there any plans to add any more playable characters beyond the two DLC ones?
>>
>>254124010
You'd get a much richer experience than Sonic in terms of gameplay. A lot of people call this a Sonic clone but it's really anything but. The gameplay is vastly different. There's only a few basic similarities like the 360 platforming (which has been heavily modified), things like springs, and the elemental shields (which work very differently).

>>254124021
There's a bit of shittiness in some dark corners but it's negligible. The game is so damn fun you'll probably overlook it.

>>254117963
I saw the game at supercon, and from the big poser furfag art, i was a bit turned off because furfag shit, but then i saw gameplay and it seemed pretty fucking radical. Soundtrack is also good from what i've heard, so i'll definitely be checking it out and maybe hoping for a steam/humble bundle sale in the future.
>>
>>254124332
>>254124375
Good to know. I believe I have Sonic Adventure 2 sitting in steam so I guess I will give that a go. I will keep this game in mind as well.
>>
>>254124128
Each character has 1 to 2 exclusive stages. Arguably there's 11 stages total, but the last stage is so damn big it's split into 4 different stage slots. These sections are different enough that you might as well consider them separate levels. S3&K technically had 14 levels too, but mind you this counted Hidden Palace and Doomsday as levels.

>>254124367
Currently not that I'm aware of.

>>254124375
How much work did it take to make the game this shitty? Do you foresee yourself making even shittier games in the future?

>>254124439
Pease god no, 2014 alone introduced us to a dozen of Sonic OCs already, I don't tink I can stomach more

No no no fuck that. Play Sonic 2 and 3. The 3D ones are only fondly remembered because it's all Sonic fans had in the dark ages

>>
>>254125298

I've heard $15.
>>
>>254125140
Pretty sure it's 15$

Is it gonna be on any third-party sites, like Green Man Gaming? I disconnected my paypal from Steam because I was an idiot, and I haven't cared enough to reconnect it.
>>
>>254124429
My favorite hack is a tie between Megamix and Sonic 3 Complete, and my favorite fangame, too difficult to say. I mean, I like BTS a lot, but there's a lot of things I don't like about it. I love Sonic Fan Remix, but it only ever got one stage. I've never made a hack, but I am currently co-lead on a fangame, and I was a composer for Sonic ATS. By now you should guess who I am lol.

No.

>>254124927
Three characters on release, Lilac, Carol, and Milla. At first, only Lilac and Carol will have story mode, Milla's will be coming shortly after. All of the stages will be intact. There will be an expansion later on that adds Spade and Torque as playable characters, and possibly another stage. I'm hoping to get some other neat features in as well.

>>254124840
There are definitely weak spots in the voice acting, but a lot of it is fantastic too.

>>254124643
Yes the soundtrack is pretty fuckin awesome. I hoped people would see things this way. Me and Strife are completely self aware of the shitty OC and DA stigma, don't think we're not. If we had a choice at this point we'd probably reduce that, but it started out as just some random fun fangame thing as many of you know, and back then there wasn't as much concern about it. Strife has said publicly that he didn't know it would be THAT big a deal to people, but he knows better now. Some good friends of mine who are thoroughly anti furry/DA shit have overlooked that because they consider the sheer quality of the game itself so good.
If there's a sequel, we're going to make efforts to steer away from that shit.
>>
>>254125140
>>254125409

I just want to say I am a huge Sonic fan, and been reading Sonic Retro for years and I love what you guys do. Can't wait to buy the game on Monday and recommend it to my friends.
There hasn't been many good Sonic fan-games in my experience and it's not only great but actually exceeds its limits, great job on that. I hope the story will also be if not grippling at least not super standard cliched retarded stuff. I like the Sonic Adventure-esque feel you're going for, it was my dream to have an adequate story-based 2D-platformer of that kind.

If this game is successful, do you plan on creating a new, completely original title?
What would you want to make?

Sorry it won't be midnight. Most likely 5 pm EST.

I don't mind furry stuff, hell, i fucking love solatorobo and shit like that. I just never liked the sonic style. It's just unappealing to me. You shouldn't let people's opinions on aesthetics take over your whole design process unless there is a legitament issue (like art style not meshing well or themeing etc). I'm just an asshole on the interent who spams 40k in fur threads while getting knuckle deep in e621. If you dig the style, go for it, man. But if you decide to change it up, thats fine too, just don't let it lower your enjoyment.

That being said, if you do those shitty "humans with cat ears and tail" bullshit, i'll disown you. Kemono, though....

I appreciate it. Just keep in mind this was only a fangame in the very beginning. It's changed entirely since then. It's not fair to call this a Sonic fangame or clone game despite the similar elements, the game is really something else entirely. Regardless, it's obvious it would appeal to Sonic fans given the roots Genesis era styles. There's also the 360 platforming, but in theory this is just a base engine for the platforming itself, as similarly a linear platformer does not make a Mario clone. I consider 360 platforming to be far more interesting and organic than basic linear platforming, which lends itself to very rich control over momentum by manipulating the environment. webm related, the speedrunning scene in this game is going to be fucking intense, I just know it. You won't get this sort of action from a linear platformer where there's obvious mathematically perfect runs just by maintaining your max horizontal speed. In this game, there is no max horizontal speed and no obvious routes or activities that create perfect times. It takes a complex combination of timing, skill and strategy to get really good at this game.

Strife wants to create a sequel, but I don't know if he has any new original projects in mind. I know I do though, and we'll be seeing them in the future. I have some ideas, but they're too immature to discuss publicly yet.

>>254126817
>>254127638
As this guy said, free. All expansions/DLC will be totally free.

>>254126929
Thank you, the trailer doesn't do it justice either. You'll see.

>>254127050
I agree, we're not going to quit making furry characters just because there's a lot of irrational hatred for it, but that doesn't mean we lack taste. We're also "eeeh" about the character designs and whatnot, and we honestly want to make something better than that.

>>254127056

>>254128617
I agree about 360-degree platforming. Even without touching on the gameplay, it just makes for much more varied environments. I wish more games did this.
Sonic 3&K is my favorite platformer because of this (along with Tropical Freeze and Oddworld).

You'd be surprised. That webm comes from one of the testers, and there's already some folks lining up to do some serious speedrunning, myself included. I've been helping guide mechanics to lend the gameplay to speedrunning, and Strife is with me when it comes to enhancing speedrunning potential. Interestingly, all these adjustments to promote speedrunning have made the gameplay really clean and given it a lot of flow.

I believe the lack of this is because Sonic's platforming engine back in the day was really fucking complex. A linear platformer like Mario is easy to make, which undoubtedly is why Nintendo has had no trouble making new games faithful to the formula. The 360 platforming engine on the other hand is a lot more difficult to create... for the average developer anyway. There's no excuse for Sega and Dimps to be incapable of this, but they fucking are. They can't come close to the original mechanics. Sonic Generations classic gameplay is heavily watered down, and don't even get me started on the atrocity that was Sonic 4. Pic related is a simple maneuver that has not been possible in a single Sonic game post 1997. Guess what, you can do that shit in Freedom Planet no problem, because it's a proper 360 platforming engine made by competent people who care.

>>254129536
The kind of platforming that regards angles realistically, aka ball physics.

>>254129669
GOG was planned but apparently they've been flakes about it and won't communicate. We're trying to get this game a standalone PC version.

>>254129835
Like I said we know the character designs are in poor shape. Strife has been trying out new designs for a sequel and I gotta say they look much better.

>>254130000
Thanks. Glad to hear it coming from quads.
The game is story heavy, but you have total control over it, which is one thing I love about it. You can turn off cutscenes entirely, but if you don't, you can skip through the dialog as fast as you can press buttons. You can also pause cutscenes, and choose to skip the scene or skip entirely to the next stage. You can also turn off the voice acting. Strife has handled this shit really well.

>>254130016

This honestly worries me just a little bit. I really like the aesthetic and look of your characters as they are already. At the very least a heck of a lot more than Sonic art and whatnot.

The Steam page says '21 hours from now' as of 8:52 PM west coast time. Does that mean the game will be coming out at 5 PM Western? That's... abnormally late.

Granted, I won't even be home from work until then, so I won't get to play it till then, but I like to buy stuff on my work laptop, and queue them for home install, so they're ready when I get home.

Not sure what you mean. In terms of gameplay? They're totally different. In terms of quality? Don't make me compare the quality of any game to Mega Man games, nobody will win. I'll just say I consider Freedom Planet really good and it's why I signed up as a dev. It's gone far beyond my expectations ever since I started working on it.

>>254130356
Great thing about the game is how much control you have over the pace of the action. With most linear platformers, you generally have a very choreographed series of events that you run through the motions to complete, with mild variation in how you accomplish it. In the case of Freedom Planet, you can stick around an area and fight, or if you're good enough at speedrunning, completely out run the enemies and hazards, as you can see in that webm. You can get so fast you out run the entire gauntlet. There's some areas in the game that you can't quite escape with speed alone, but in this case it depends on your platforming prowess. The fighting system is a shit ton of fun too, and there's all kinds of details regarding how you fight and take damage, such as fire not hurting you right away, but heating you up until you take an actual hit. You have tons of subtle control over your movement and state, such as Carol's wildkick granting temporary invulnerability and Lilac's cyclone dampening the effects of gravity, which can be cancelled at any time to perfect your jumps, or you can hold down and turn the cyclone into a fastfall.

>>254130498

>Great thing about the game is how much control you have over the pace of the action. With most linear platformers, you generally have a very choreographed series of events that you run through the motions to complete, with mild variation in how you accomplish it

Yes. This is what makes a platformer great. Giving the player tools and letting them decide how to use them to pass obstacles. Finally someone gets it.

Glad to hear it, I hope you like the game.

>>254131117
I could go on about this for a while. For one thing, every entry in the trilogy did something significant. There's a sort of rule set that they went by.
New character.
New basic mechanic.
New special stage.
More, larger stages than the last game.
Pushing the boundaries of the musical style.
Keep other parts of Sonic canon outside of the trilogy, ie Metal Sonic.

Sonic 4 did the exact opposite of all these things and somehow did worse than that. They not only did not add a new character, they removed Knuckles. They replaced instashield with a poorly made homing attack. They copied two of the previous special stages instead of creating a new one. There were less stages than even Sonic 2, and that's combing both episodes. The music was not better, it was not even the same or comparable quality. It was a million times worse than the original trilogy. Sonic Jump has better fucking music, how and why?? And the physics. How the fuck could they go that far backwards? How has Dimps gotten worse? Sonic Advance was pretty close to the Genesis games. Sonic Rush was meh. Sonic 4 was a fucking travesty in every conceivable way. I have a strong feeling they were deliberately trying to fuck it up as a middle finger to the fans who wanted Sonic to return to form.
>>
>>254132953
If the full game handles music like the demo, it's just freely stored in .ogg format in the install folder.

No one left at Sega even remembers that Sonic is supposed to be a physics-based game, they just think that Sonic is supposed to go fast

ooh i gots a question. if you were to make a new type of special stage, what would it be?
>>
>>254133050
I completely agree with you on Sonic 4, this is all what I wanted as well.
It's a shame to me just because before I could at least fantasize in the bathroom about a Sonic 4, but now it's already out and can't be erased from history and they probably can't make another game called Sonic 4 and even one in spirit comes out (not probable) it still wouldn't be hype and the damage to reputation is done.
They wasted such a good opportunity.

This is what pisses me off. After Sonic 3 (or, arguably, Knuckles Chaotix) they have been rehashing the SHIT out of the Sonic 2 stage and its variations. Fucking give it a rest.
Is it really that hard to come up with one new, fresh original concept throughout all those years?

In a way that's a good thing. This is supposed to capture the spirit of 16 and 32 bit era games in general, in particular the Genesis and Saturn. It's been compared not just to Sonic, but also Ristar, Sparkster, Gunstar Heroes, games like that.

>>254132627
I'm rather pissed myself that other devs don't get this sort of thing, or refuse to for whatever dumbass personal reasons or opinions.

>>254132674
We know, we're doing what Sega is too stupid to do.

>>254132953
Yes, there will be an OST release, which will feature additional songs such as the beta version of Dragon Valley.

>>254133273
Yep and this is something me and Strife know all too well. I can't even trig and I have no doubt I know more about proper Sonic physics than all of Sega's devs combined. Obviously some people do anyway, considering Taxman could singlehandedly replace Dimps and do a thousand times better than any of the shit they ever made.

I've given this a lot of thought, I'm still not sure.

I haven't actually played a Sanic game, but the close-up camera in both them and this game looks incredibly claustrophobic

Just wanna say I fucking hate all Sonic threads on /v/ usually because they devolve into heretical levels of deviancy and even more annoying, any lack of appreciation for classic Sonic but I really actually like what I'm seeing with this game.

It would fit right in among what would be the 'next gen' of 2D platformers back in the Saturn era with shit like Astal. Except this actually looks fun to play, unlike Astal.
>>
>>254133416
The worst part about Sonic 4 is that it's clearly a cash in on Mega Man 9, and THAT game is actually better than it's predecessors.

The small res has been criticized and we wish we could change it, but it's nigh impossible at this point. We're not making that mistake twice. Regardless, no, it's not as bad as it looks, the game still plays great. Try the demo if you're not sure.

Excuse me, but I'm a big fan of shark tank, so. Let me rib you for a second.

Pixel made Cave Story by himself, while in college, and gave it out for free. If it wasn't for him, video games wouldn't have this pseudo indie scene that is making kickstarter, and your game possible. Tell me.

Yet in reality it's quite the opposite, they're proud of their garbage. Or they don't give the remotest of shits, not entirely sure. Probably the latter. I'm probably confusing aggressive marketing with pride.

>>254134347
There have already been a few criticisms about giving it a story, but they're nothing compared to the endless Sonic clone donut steel DA furfag shitfest the game has been getting. Strife did the right thing by making the story controllable from a range of full story to off.

>>254134413
Cave Story was fuckin great, but mind you only the original version was free. The game was eventually enhanced for Wiiware and then given a 2.5d makeover for 3DS. At some point a dev considers their own work good enough to make it commercial, and so they do, and it's up to you to decide if it's worth it. Buying the game doesn't just support the dev, it also supports the continuation of the dev's work, that's part of the point. If you like it and want to see more, help make it happen. We want to create better games in the future, ones you may actually consider worth your buck, even if the current one isn't up to your standards.

>>254134721
I don't, but it shouldn't take too long.

>>254134932
Of course it's easy, you played the first stage. The game gets a hell of a lot more challenging later on.
>>
>>254134939
I mean no aggression by it. It just baffles me how such a renown game is for free, and it being for free doesn't make the game worthwhile, let me note that Cave story could have been a fucking full price Game Boy Advanced game. I just don't see how indie devs don't thank pixel on a daily basis. Unless this game is better than Cave Story, which, I hope it is, every game should be better than games before it, since they can study and see what makes them tick, and what makes them trip. Now, the demo is good, but it's not Cave Story good.

I'm not entirely sure from the webm, but it's pretty obvious that the character sprites were just tilted, not redrawn, for angles. It makes the lines look all blocky and kind of lazy and GBA-y. Was this changed in the full version?

I wouldn't compare the game to Cave Story.
Cave Story is great, but I think there are games just as good, they just do different things (Super Meat Boy, this game).
It's Pixel's choice to not ask for money and I commend him for it, but I don't see anything inherently wrong with it (especially since everyone has different environment and situation) and I would gladly pay Pixel too if he asked.
So I don't see anything wrong with indie devs asking for money, especially if the game is good.

No, the game uses real time rotation I'm afraid. This has been criticized before. As much as we would like to have properly redrawn angles, it's not practical to do. It would take a million years because every single frame and sprite for every character in the game can be at any conceivable angle at any time, and there's many things beyond characters that require rotation.

>>254135701
Not sure, but there are three difficulty settings, casual, normal, and hard.

>>254135793
There are a couple bottomless pits in the game, but they're super fuckin obvious. The fourth stage, Sky Battalion, takes place on an airship, so if you jump off the sides, you're gonna die. Unlike say, Wing Fortress or Flying Battery however, there's no bottomless pits during the stage itself, only the far sides of it. There's also a couple bottomless pits in the final stage, but they're made very obvious to avoid seeing as they're wind tunnels that drags you down a shaft.

Yep no kidding. As far as I've seen the game doesn't start you from any cutscenes when you die either, and certain areas in stages where cutscenes happen are skipped over if you've already played them, died and respawn. They game does good at keeping pace and letting you manage it.

>>254136975
I didn't say that, I said I don't know what modes there will be or how the difficulty settings will work exactly. I'm pretty sure there will be no-damage achievements though.

That's not very fair to say since Pixel himself was asking money for his latest game, Kero Blaster, which personally don't think compares to Cave Story (Still a good game though). Just because other indie devs ask for money for their game doesn't mean they see Cave Story as something inferior to their work, it just means that they think they did a decent enough job to ask money for their work and effort.

No one should be paid for working hard, it's expected of them. They should be paid for getting the job done. It's why we reward good results and not effort. I agree with Kero Blaster not being worth the money, because it's not.

From what I know the game is being translated to other languages and I believe Japanese and Russian are priority. Me and Strife are not weebs, I don't even give a shit about most anime, and the couple of animes I do give a shit about I'm not all that invested in.

>>254137423
I'd say Genesis but the SNES one was good too.

>>254137467
Possibly but it wouldn't be smart.

>>254137541
I'd be okay with that, but unlike Sega, we wouldn't make that some kind of marketing directive.

>>254137317
I can't answer that. The interest someone has in a game has a lot to do with personal preference, and FP and CS are so different they're pretty much impossible to compare properly. Just remember that Pixel did eventually sell remakes of Cave Story, so it's more appropriate to consider if you think those are worth something and then ask yourself the same of Freedom Planet.

>>254137704
No, there's no alt endings. Just one ultimate ending. There are variations on some cutscenes though depending on who you're playing as.

>>254137775
As much as I love Cave Story it's not right to argue it as a masterpiece. It's a fucking great game but it's not perfect. If it was, there wouldn't have been remakes that were actually sold commercially.

What the fuck is up with you and Cave Story? Not every indie game is Cave Story, and games aren't priced based on their quality. Deal with it. This derivative sonic clone looks bad, I'll give you that, but the constant Cave Story comparisons are retarded.
>>
>>254138445
Who are you to decide what is objectively good or fun to be compared to something else?
This game looks fun, fun ENOUGH, and that deserves a moderate, fair price, which is 10-15 as a standard for that kind of game.
How do you measure the cost of Cave Story and on what parameters are you assigning cost to other, different games?

There's also a couple bottomless pits in the final stage, but they're made very obvious to avoid seeing as they're wind tunnels that drags you down a shaft.
That's fine, I just meant that it isn't a platformer where it just puts them in throughout levels like Shovel Knight

Why is the camera so close to the character? I get the feeling that you don't understand that sometimes, you have to sacrifice graphics in order to make the game better. Having the camera too close to the character is one of those things. You have to move it back a bit so that the player can see what's going on around them. And remember that just because it doesn't affect you, since you already know where everything is and what's coming up next, it doesn't meant it won't affect others without your dev-knowledge.

This is especially important since this thing is apparently a Sonic clone, which I assume means you'll be going fairly fast.

Well considering the Undertale demo had this to ridiculous levels and Freedom Planet didn't, maybe not.

>>254138920
It's actually 58 fps due to a bug in the timer than depends on this specific framerate, but otherwise it's very good at maintaining it. You don't need a very good PC to play this game smoothly.

>>254138923
There's apparently a lot of fans in Russia. I think Chinese is also high priority, considering this game has a lot of China themes.

>>254139049
You could say that, but even so, why would it get enhanced versions sold commercially? It's more fair to compare the quality of those to Freedom Planet.

>>254139385
Filtering was used for rotation way earlier on, but trust me it looks shittier and everyone agreed. It's out of place.

>>254139724
I said Cave Story is fucking great, I'm not downplaying it. I praised Freedom Planet too because it's a good game. It's simply not fair to argue that a good game should not be commercial just because one great one happened to be free. As I said earlier, you're not just supporting the devs, you're supporting better things to be made in the future.

I saw your webm. The small res is clearly a huge problem, because you have absolutely no idea of where you're going. Several of the jumps you make are straight-up leaps of faith. You can only play the game like that because you know where exactly everything in the game is and because you've played that area many times before.

Also, the running animation looks very awkward.

We've been wondering the same thing honestly.

>>254140180
If you think so, but it's really not a Sonic clone, considering the gameplay is vastly different. Not that this would automatically be a bad thing if it were, considering there hasn't even been an official Sonic clone since Sonic Advance when you think about it.

>>254140351
Such as the sequel. We want to increase the production values a lot for the next game.

>>254140556
This certainly hasn't been a problem for me or the testers. The levels are designed very well and accommodate the low res.

>>254140568

Likely the combination of compression and a low resolution. The bigger the resolution of the weebum the less noticeable it becomes.

>>254139779
>>254140556

The nature of the game isn't like Sonic where you are flung into obstacles. Most enemies don't hurt on contact, and those that will fly into the screen have warning icons telling you something's coming in that direction. It's more common to be going too slow and get hit rather than going fast and run into something.

In addition, most of the time you're going fast is when you're making an active effort to use the tools the game gives you to do so. The game isn't played at the pace of speedrunning. That's only when you know what you're doing. Anywhere you're meant to go fast won't stick hazards in your way to frustrate you. That's on top of two of the characters having special moves grant invulnerability to almost all forms of damage to help with being reckless.

It'd be more profitable to make games for the NES than the Wii U. There are people out there who will buy a newly made NES game, even more if the game turns out to be great (ala Super Bat Puncher). The Wii U has no one who would want to buy anything but Mario/Zelda/Smash. Sad but true.

I really like Sonic Advance. It's the absolute closest game we have in the modern series to the originals. Sonic Advance 2 was good, and Sonic Advance 3 took a dive but it was still alright. At the very least, the physics were pretty accurate, which is leagues more than you can say about any Sonic game since.

>>254142510
We're most likely not using CF2.5 for the sequel or other future games. We've fought with the stupid fucker this whole time trying to kill all kinds of nonsensical bugs and dealing with it's shittastic interface. It's bad for us and the product. It's a really amazing feat we've managed to make this game so good with it.

For the record I've never advertised the game here and this isn't my thread, though I don't know if other devs/testers have. Quite frankly the majority of what I've been doing in this thread is just answering questions, because there's a lot of them surrounding this game.

Dev, if you're still here, I need to tell you something.

Don't give a fuck what people tell you about your character designs if they're just based on the DA stigma.

If you make a good game, you earn the right to make your character however you want.

Sonic himself, in another world, would be HIMSELF a shitty DA character. What saves him from that is the fact that (besides the fact that he's actually the canon mascot) he has some good games under his belt.

DA fancharacters have nothing. They're just there.

If you dedicate yourself to making a good game, make whatever character you want, because you've earned it. Anime eyes, boobs, blatant furry, whatever, it doesn't matter.

For example, /v/ hates Krystal because (besides any possible cliches she fulfills) she debuted in an absolutely awful game.

So as long as your game is good, your characters will be redeemed from whatever stigma they would otherwise have.

Found another piece of concept, for a section in Final Dreadnought that would have elevator combat sections, and them platforming checkpoints.

>>254143824
I understand that, but me and Strife do agree that the character designs could be better. We also care about who we're selling the game to and so if there's a lot of shit about something in particular, we're going to consider it. We're not going to just stick to something in bad taste because "lol our game is good we can do whatever we want", that's not a good mentality. I also agree with the philosophy of doing your own thing and not giving a shit about what other people say, but it's not that black and white. There's a balance in philosophies that make for something greater when everything is applied contextually to where it belongs.

Like I said I didn't post this thread, I didn't even know there were others like it until you just said that, this is the first one I'm seeing today. Also I would never recommend CF2.5 because it's been hell trying to use it for anything. For starters they could update their fucking coordinate variables to use decimals on their own.

>>254144396
Lilac, I guess due to the design having more simplicity, a hint of retro future scifi, being a weird as fuck concept for a dragon, and I prefer her gameplay.

>>254144623
I feel the same way. One thing that generally pisses me off about devs, especially those who get big, is how fucking distant they are from anyone but themselves and their team. I've vowed to never be like that.

>>254144841
As said, we can't do anything about the camera/screen res, yes it would break the game. Just know that it's really not so bad in action as it seems when you're just looking at screenshots, and the sequel, should there be one, will have a much more generous screen size and quite possibly the very feature you're suggesting.

Like Shovel Knight I think Freedom Planet actually looks good and fun. However, again like Shovel Knight, I don't think I'd feel comfortable playing $15. If it's on steam I'll wait until there's a sale and get it for, at most, $5.

I'll most likely play it just once and never go back to it, like the Genesis Sonic games. Got all the emeralds, got the best endings, never felt any desire to go back to them ever after that.

I also got reminded of SK but for different reasons. SK felt like old games (castlevania, megaman, ducktales) mixed with their own mechanics (getting pushed back when attacking, short range, losing treasure when dying) and overall it kinda clashes. This is similar, it feels like classic sonic but with the directional dashing of sparkster and more choreographed level design, and again it clashes a bit

If you feel that your character designs could be better then of course changing them is always good. As far as what people are complaining about your art, if there's any actual criticism of it then of course it'd be good to note. But please don't make changes just because a good amount of people might say something like "that game has animal people! Its art sucks!". The whole reason a lot of people even hate such an aesthetic is because of a fandom on the internet. Oftentimes if it wasn't for the internet people probably wouldn't hate it, and such a complaint isn't even a very good piece of criticism on its own.

>>254145462
This is perhaps just my shilling reflex but I consider Freedom Planet more fun than Shovel Knight and holy fuck does it have a lot more replay value, at least for me. It's like Smash Bros where there's so much variety in the core gameplay that you can play the same stages over and over and not get bored of it.

Typical dev, I played the demo once and never touched it again. Not that it was bad, but you can probably breeze through it really fast and play quite well, while the average player can't. Just like how speedrunners get really good at the game they run and can play them endlessly, while the average player can't/won't.

Shovel Knight was more fun than the demo at least

That's simply untrue with games like these. I personally am not a speedrunner or even any good with Sonic styled games but I replay them quite a bit, just to get the thrill of playing through it and maybe slightly improve my run.

These kinds of games aren't 'one and done' styles of games. Platformers are rarely about going through the motions just to finish them.

I don't know about that anon. Keep in mind that both Star Fox Adventures and Star Fox Assault were both player's choice games, meaning they sold really well.
