Ionic - First screenies

I've been working on a TD game ( It's the law that you have to do at least one ) on and off for the past couple of weeks, and the main dreadnought graphics are pretty much done, so I thought I'd post a couple of grabs seeing how I've been relatively quiet here recently ( I moved away from London a week ago, and I'm suffering with things still in boxes and a mobile net connection, which is about as much use as tits on a nun, so that's why I've been a little awol )

I've not got much else to add at the moment. If you liked cronusX then you should like this, I want a mixture of TD and all out particle heavy shoot'em up. It's either going to work well, or fall flat on it's arse ( I'm thinking more the latter to be honest ).

Anyway more when I've got it. It's a bit of a stop start project as we've got a ton of work in right now, so that and real life is getting priority.

Squize.

    Looks like I'm going to enjoy this one ( more so than X even ) at least it already has got the looks!

    And a free advise about the moving boxes: Anything still in there after three weeks you can safely throw away - or keep it in there and stash it in the attic if you're a sentimental sod ;-)

    Ha, yeah I've shoved a load of stuff in the garage already. I'm a proper hoarder though, I can't throw anything out. You'll see me on tv in 30 years time as one of those nutters who has a huge house but it's full of carrier bags full of crap ( Not literally, I'm hoping I don't go that far into being insane that I actually bag up turds ).

    As to the game, hopefully if I get time I'll get some baddies flying around in some nice patterns in the next couple of weeks which should help bring it to life and we can see if it's going to be viable as a game.

    lol, busted

    I'm determined to make a good game using that name. If you remember it was the shoot'em up I did back on the Amiga, where everything was right about it, aside from it being fun.
    That has always haunted me, that you can make a game that is technically right in every way, but still misses the mark. I have a real hang up about that, even all these years later.

    I think you might have used the name in a C64 demo at some point too...

    Also, the screenshots reminded me a bit of the graphics I did for Torque.

    *sigh* So long ago!

    The graphics seems amazing, will this game also be available in flash version? I'd love to add it in my arcade. :-)

    Hi taj, yeah it's all Flash mate. Don't know when it'll be done though, as I'm being stretched with two other projects atm.

    Thanks for your comment.
