You know the last game that blow my mind on a unique mechanic was the one where you took a picture and then thay part of the world was either added or removed....hopping between shadows!? That's friggan neat, I wanna play it.

What game is that? sounds very interesting

ID: gqn6a1f

They are thinking of Viewfinder. You take photos with a camera and can paste what you took a photo of into the game world. It's another first-person puzzle game like Portal, Superliminal, Tag: Power of the paint, Qube, Antichamber, The Stanley Parable.

Viewfinder is an upcoming one that uses this mechanic really well

ID: gqmv22k

pretty sure it's this game called viewfinder

ID: gqn5xy9

Don't know why you have downvotes. This person is clearly talking about Viewfinder and not Superliminal. "the one where you took a picture and then thay part of the world was either added or removed"

You might recognize the game from my previous post here, I'm happy to announce the game is now available to wishlist on Steam:

ID: gqmadfa

I do remember you. Game needs some indicator of where you're located; I still can't tell whether anything actually happens in the elephant clip.

ID: gqmau13

Yeah I've been meaning to make the player always visible through walls.

ID: gqnbc9o

There’s what looks like a “gleam” or a pair of eyes that moves up the trunk shadow, and then into the tusk shadow as the trunk swings by it.

The same effect can be seen in the other scenes as well, indicating where the shadow frog is.

Came here to say I remember the first time seeing it!

ID: gqmgxs3

The concept and colours are so cool! I'm buying it even if it'll get boring in a half an hour!

ID: gqmo6wp

Looking forward to it, into chiaroscuro games

ID: gqmt4ag

Somebody remembers art class 😉

Looks fun. Is SCHiM the name?

ID: gqll5ow

Yes that's the name!

ID: gqmuirz

I was going to guess ShadowLeap or Dark Frogger... Looks really cool.

Love the art style

ID: gqlnwe8

Thank you!

This is so fine. Which OS does it run on?

P.s. Why's the fps so low?

ID: gqlkrtf

Thanks! I'm running the game on Windows, the fps got very low because of the gif conversion.

ID: gqm8pp3

It looks neat, and very creative. I hope to see it one day. Keep up the good work. Good luck.

[Black Sabbath] game

I like the mechanic at the core of the gameplay loop, but have players reported an issue with losing there place? It looks like you're invisible in the shadows, which I feel like could disorient players.

ID: gqm3c4r

Thanks, no the playtesters didn't feel disoriented, I think this gif might not do it entirely justice.

9 : Anonymous2021/03/11 19:13 ID: gqlszc0

It looks really fun and the look and feel is very cute.

ID: gqlv54i

Thank you very much! 😀

10 : Anonymous2021/03/11 20:02 ID: gqlzl26

how you did this shading?

ID: gqm01sm

All shading is done through my own custom shaders, which is essentially just cell shading. The shadows are also drawn with my own shaders.

ID: gqm0j4q

but this color system?!

11 : Anonymous2021/03/11 18:16 ID: gqlkxeo

What's it about. Would love to hear more.

ID: gqll9pg

Thanks!, The game is about jumping from shadow to shadow in an colorful animated world.

ID: gqlloa8

Nice. I like the elephant haha.

This actually reminds me a game I played in real life something like land and ocean/sea.

Where there is one guy who stays in water (not literally) while the rest Try to get to other designated parts of land.

ID: gqlof7r

The game is releasing on Steam first, the game is already available for wishlisting

ID: gqm4lyx

Looks very cool ! Which engine did you use ?

26 : Anonymous2021/03/11 21:43 ID: gqmdadk

Did you program everything ( did you use visual programming like bolt or write yourself )? Gonna start my finals for my game design course soon but I mainly re use code from YouTube videos. Nice work man

27 : Anonymous2021/03/11 21:51 ID: gqmebhk

That's a really cool concept! Great job so far!

This is a beautifully satisfying game. I will be an owner of, what looks to me, an indie masterpiece.
