Off the cuff and off the big projects, I decided to tap that inner silliness and make a game called Coinbox Hero!
A small two week project (more like 9 days if you don’t count a stupid day of a single bug fixing ), Coinbox Hero is a funtime hoedown with polka music. Unlike some of my other games the polka music actually came before the game theme, so it was fun to work in the atmosphere of polka. I think it really shined through on this one.
On a more technical note I created an engine (in part thanks to Tony and Joey of Armor Games) that would allow for over 3,000 coins in the engine to display on-screen at once with minimal lag (this is a huge step above Luminara and some of the other particle games). Originally my other engines were limited to about 200-300 particles, so this 1000% increase is quite drastic. Without all the dancing and polka it could handle about 5,000 coins, holy smokes!
Anyway, enough babbling. Enjoy Coinbox Hero. Any requests for my next project?
Oh, and it’s my birthday today. I’m 25 and getting older.
