Don't Panic Dizzy! [PROGRESS THREAD]

Post by Noggin the Nog » Sun Feb 24, 2013 5:27 pm

A quiet weekend, awful awful weather, what better to do than build a Dizzy game set on a spaceship?

I've been working on this for a while now. I've just finished the Hud so I can show you some screenshots. I think they're looking pretty good.

Nice work Noggin. Given the title and the setting, I am expecting some very bad poetry! :D

The screenshots look great, not good. :) I hope there's not too much connection with "Dizzy Panic"? That's the one Dizzy game I truly hate.
Btw, when - "more or less", of course - is the game to be expected? I have to say that I was surprised when "Dizzy vs. the Snow Queen" was ready, I thought it would take more time.

Nowhere Girl: I've never even heard of Dizzy Panic, so don't er... panic.

And yes, there's definitely going to be a HHGTTG flavour to this game, but I've no plans for any specific references. Having said that, I haven't fully planned out the middle section of the game yet, so I'm open to suggestions. :)

lol yeah i thought this was a Panic Dizzy reamke for a second.
It's best you don't know what it is, it's punihsment is what it is.

Anyway your game is looking neat. Looks futuristic.
Its always the cracked ones that let the light in

I guess I'll ask again because I edited my post at the same moment Noggin was responding... At what stage of development, more or less, is the game and when can it be expected?
And maybe just two or three more screenshots? Pleeease... ;) (I also referred to it ealier, when asking about screnshots from "Dizzy and the Ring of Zaks", but I'll remind of this funny fragment: maybe you have played the first, unfinished version of "Dizzy and the Other Side" and recall the ending sequence, when it said that further levels are in development and then "the player's voice" begged "the author" for more screenshots... ;) )
And btw, I think the "upcoming games list" should be updated. If I remember well, there is even some game on the list which has already been released...
