Isn't it the plot that made a game like SD-Snatcher so popular ?

yeah, but sd snatcher is an adventure game.., adventure games always have stories.A platformgame (or a shooter for that matter) doesn't need a story of you don't have one.

exceptions are ofcourse Aleste with the DIA 51 story and all games in the nemesis saga which thrived on plots Smile

to be honest: fubsy don't need no plot.
like wolf said itsa straight up action platform game, no hidden stories blabla whatso ever. pure and simple item collection baddy killing in your face platform.

ambitions for plots, rpg, other game play etc. are for later I guess.
let's see if I/we can finish this, aight?!

with plot I meant: where to go, what to do, some background info, maps etc. just a wrong choice of words from my side I guess.

some specs: the game is screen 5 gfx hardware animation driven. animations can be hybrids between pure GFX and sprites (hurray for sprite speed)
The engine works allright. smooth enough for this game anyway.
I've done some game developing before, but this is a bit bigger project.
you see, the fuzz was all about demos and utils. but never did some huge game stuff (well some small stuff on picturedisk menus... hehe, remember the shoot'm up? that one was actually coded in 2 days.. well, it shows. ahum)
the menu on Sunrise pic.disk #1 (was it?) is cute too. simple game play, nice platform. good enough for a menu on pict.disk. and be honest; it runs super smooth and gameplay is very cool for that matter. (something like fubsy I guess)
other *B*I*G* project was/still is our O.S. (f-kernel / midas) which has greatly improved over the last years. Games like Pumkin adventure and the sunrise mag. runs completely onnit!

ah, enough b.s. gotta get back to coding again....
(wish saffie was here to help me out on some routines.... so much work..sniff)
