Nativium is a RTS/Civilization game developer by Andrea Perrello, Jacopo Zincarini, Luca Brandonisio as university project and made with MarteEngine, Slick and Lwjgl !

Concept is simple: you have small resources and in order to survive you have to build your economy, keep your people happy and survive. It's similar to Civilization series and, unlike many commercial or university project, comes with a lot of class diagrams, explanations and a nice installation guide.

I'm proud of this work confirms our efforts with MarteEngine as library to develop small, medium project!

Well done boys!

Geometry Two - Ludum Dare results and postmortem

0 commenti
For more information about GeometryTwo, go here.

After three weeks of plays and ratings, Ludum Dare 34 is now complete! My results are amazing:

I'm proud in particular for Theme, Fun and innovation, because I don't think GeometryTwo could do so nice.. so, well done :D

What went right

  • use an already proven library, MarteEngine to maximize my strengths
  • background stellar image, done in two hours following tutorials and I really like it
  • movement, inspired from CryptoRL2
  • a fixed avatar for player means to defend in all directions, understand game rules and more important to try to anticipate enemy movements

What went wrong

  • difficulty: it's hard to get over level five and in part is something related to the game itself, but so the game seems broken ... and it's not!
  • mechanics are not completed: you can get bigger and smaller, but I really liked to add some sort of energy to control over these mechanics
  • I've put down some ideas before compo starts.. and forgot during the compo
