That looks awesome! I haven’t seen anything about this game before. Do you guys have a Twitter account or something?

Thanks a lot for all your nice words!

@Benjamin_W The game is still being developed so porting to consoles still didn’t start but will be soon. Though, I’m sure I won’t be able to answer your question due to signed NDAs with the platform owners.

@Jjagg Thanks a lot for you nice words, means a lot! It has been announced pretty recently, although it has a history way back to 2014. Our twitter account is https://twitter.com/Creamative_

Well done, congrats and rock on! err I mean www.monogame.rocks on! :stuck_out_tongue:

Reminds me of Silver, from a long time ago [showing my age], nice!

EDIT

If at all possible, could you write a post regarding your experiences and ‘watch out for’ notes for each platform? would do the community a great help! and should get pinned globally pretty fast.

@MrValentine Again thanks a lot for your nice words and I agree that Monogame rocks :smiley:! I’ll start a kind of a devlog shortly which I look forward to share my thoughts on general video game development as well as the experience of developing Clan N. Regarding “each platfom experience”, might tell something about that when the time comes but since each Monogame platform sdk is only open to registered platform developers, I might need to consult with Monogame moderators regarding this.

Hi Ozden79, nice game!

I played your demo and reached the end of the demo on my second game. I like it :slight_smile:
Ran without problems on Windows10 64bits, PS4 DS gamepad, GeForce GTX 1050Ti

During the first game, the character just disappeared.I was around the bottom right stone formation. I think I was rolling, but I’m not sure of it. I haven’t been able to reproduce it. (I attach the image where the character has disappeared)

.
The enemies froze (as if they didn’t know where to walk to) and the GO> sign started blinking, despite I think it shouldn’t have as there were enemies around and didn’t blink before disappearing.

Some feedback, most of it is probably in your TODO list and very personal appreciations / requests (feel free to ignore):

  • Blocking key (and I suppose most keys) should be configurable. I’ve been playing some Dark souls lately and blocking with R1 feels so wrong :wink:
  • I think that when blocking, pressing roll should override the block (for block and dodge tactics), or maybe moving slowly while blocking.
  • I couldn’t pass the start screen without a gamepad on (I don’t know if the game is playable with keys though). This is not specified, at least in itch.io
  • Please add in setup the ability to change the layout of the gamepad. I mean, I play with a Playstation DS4 gamepad and the tutorial was totally worthless for me, as I have no idea where XYAB are located. However triangle,square,circle,X are second nature to me (blame Parappa). Maybe the gamepad model can be detected runtime and automatically switch the layout, I have to find it out for my game.
  • Escape just quits the game instantly, I’d recommend to add a confirmation menu as an accidental keypress can just ruin a game. I actually pressed Escape moving the keyboard away in a middle of a game and quitted, luckily I was just at the start.

Good work, can’t wait for further versions or release! :slight_smile:

Hi @KakCat,

Thank you very much for taking time to play and write this lengthy feedback, it’s very much appreciated!

The “disappear” bug you’ve seen has been only reported once a few months ago by a partner and for them the only solution was to create an OpenGL build rather than DirectX. We couldn’t reproduce it in our end in any case so it’s something mistery for us as well. We’ll keep an eye on that but the good point is that it didn’t affect your play in your subsequent try(es).

This is an Alpha build with a few missing items and known bugs. Some missing features are Keyboard support and ability to redefine GamePad buttons which will be included in the final game. Defining the GamePad type is also in the todo list and than we’ll update the gamepad icons in the game according to that. Escape key behavior is something I had done for myself to quickly quit the game and forgot there, so that’ll change in the final game as well.

One interesting request of yours is to be able to tumble even while you are blocking. At the moment, as you’ve probably noticed, you only affect your blocking direction which is a purely visual effect and nothing to do with the ability of blocking (even somebody attacking from your back will be auto blocked if you are pressing the block button at that time).Overhauling/reviewing the combo system for a more easy approach is in the todo list and at that point I’ll also review this to see how it affects the balance of the gameplay. If it feels right, I’ll add it and it will be your contribution to the game :hugs:.

Finally, I’m glad to hear that you liked it and once more thank you very much for taking time and writing back your feedback!
