Hi guys,

With Strikeforce released, and my dreamproject (Project Starlight) lost (along with my soul and motivation to restart the project  Cry) on my previous laptop, i am currently working on finishing my vertical shoot'em up Exile, after which i will work on new projects.

So, before filling up my own agenda, what type of games would you like to see me work on next?  Please rate the (type of) game from 1 to 10 if you can.

Here are some of the thing i'm toying with at the moment, if you :

[ ] Exile (vertical shoot 'em up)
[ ] Mayhem 2 (round-based, with railguns , lasers, etc.)
[ ] V:Hockey (2-player only one on one icehockey game, similar to my vectrex release)
[ ] Topview Racing game
[ ] Defender style shoot'em up game
[ ] Astrosmash (INTV) type game
[ ] Bi-Plane arcade game (single and multiplayer)
[ ] Jetpack cave exploration/collect-a-ton game
[ ] Own idea

Please rate all the above titles 1 (not at all interested) to 10 (dream come true) to indicate your interest in them. Or ofcourse name your own games/ideas and i will look into them...

For this to work, i would need a large number of people to reply / send in their feedback.

[1] Doodle Jump kind of a game.

When I was still ambitious to program my own game I had this idea for a Doodlejump kind of game. You are this critter that has to keep jumping upwards while platforms are scrolling from top to bottom. Special items would do things like launching extra high & fast, slow you down, kill you, made you able to fly eetc etc...

Just an idea I found back a couple of days ago.
Here my design:

Maybe some lines from the movie "Happy Gilmore"  - The guy who follows Adam Sandler around trying to get him mad

Other funny movie quotes that fit this scenario - maybe we could all vote on which ones make into the game - involve the forum community.

- change them a little to fit the game better and keep them free of really bad words of course. I think that would be a fun two player game.

I think something like V-hockey should be really fun, but it needs a 1 player version.

Thanks for the suggestions so far. Good to see so much love for V-Hockey as well.

V-Hockey is a really fun but complex game and a single-player mode with convincing AI will be really hard to pull off. I had the hardest time creating a convincible AI player on the vectrex, that was not only following the puck, but attacking, offending, moving towards goal, taking a shot, etc.

So the Videopac version will most likely be a 2-player game, yet incredibly fun to play. I'm not a sports-guy or icehockey-guy myself, but this is essentially a mega souped-up version of pong where you'd have to switch between attacking (when you have the puck) and defending the goal (whenever your opponent moves towards your goal).

Find attached a screenshot of the game really early in development.
Both players have 8 degrees of movement and are moving around along with the puck. Puck movement is still iffy at times and no Goalies are implemented yet.

I was waiting so long for your masterpiece "Project Starlight" to hear now, that it will never come. After I saw a screenshoot, I dreamed to play it one day. I can imagine, that it was very hard, to lost your laptop with all your work, but that could be not your last word. I thought, that "Project Starlight" would be the highlight of all your games. All what you have learned with your other games and all advantages of it, should be in this one game. And now it`s over for ever?  Sad

I really hope, that you think about it and hopefully found your motivation back, to restart the project. Yes, it would be very hard at the beginning, but believe me, this game is it worth !!! Please make it for you and for us!  Kiss

We have wait so long, we can wait longer. Let you all the time you need, but please let this game not die !

*with intro "the voice" music
*with special colored ships (you have a blue one and your friends are blue) that you have to catch
and other colored ships (eg red) which you have to fire up,
additionally to the normal dodge  Grin

I wonder if something like Puyo Pop or Columns could be on the Odyssey 2. It needs more puzzle games.
