Just a quick question: Have you discontinued this? I was pretty interested in Fangame for awhile. It had some potential.
Sorry it's been so long since I've been around.  I sorta 'unofficially discontinued' development on the game... it was somewhat becoming a source of stress in my life because there seemed to be so much work involved in it... although I would like to get back to work on it eventually.

I did start working on the Amper Sands boss, though... even though I didn't do a whole lot there.

Perhaps I should take a poll to see who would like me to keep working on it.

Vertigo, it is without a doubt one of the best IWBTG-esque games on these whole forums, and the only reason I haven't continued my playthrough is because is rather play a full version.  Please continue development for this game, and I'll offer a completed playthrough of mine as a bit of incentive. <3

Second this. I will do another one too, in my mother language (spanish), but I will do it. I loved your game. A LOT.

Well it'll probably be a long time before I finish.

Also if you do a playthrough in Spanish, I won't watch it anyway, but thanks.

Of course I remember you, Indigo.

I guess I have a lot of people waiting for a full version.  Well, just keep in mind that I might NEVER actually finish it, so...

Another option would be to just make it a lot shorter than I originally planned.  Make the Amper Sands boss, then add a level or two so players can use the gravity orb, and then a final boss.

We'll see.  Thanks for the encouraging words, guys.  I really do need it.

Welcome to the art of video game design. If you can't handle the stress then stop making the game.

He asked if we thought he should continue or not and I gave him my response. You don't have the be a professional to get stressed out. Making a game will always cause you stress. Learning to deal with makes you one step closer to becoming a better game designer.

Well, guys, I think I've decided to come back.

Just to clear up something said within the last few posts, I didn't start making Fangame out of boredom.  I did it because I was a HUGE fan of IWBTG and I wanted to create something similar... but better.  Fangame IS my first indie game project and being such, it's been a huge learning process, both on a mental and psychological level.

I had stopped production at a very crucial point in development... just when doors of opportunity were opening up for me in terms of design ideas.  I think I got pretty discouraged because the most recent level I added, Cloud 9.1, was so spontaneous and unplanned and messy, I didn't think I could really recover from it.  I should have planned it out better, but I didn't, and I put so much hard work into programming that level, I couldn't just scrap it.

There was also the looming fact that the Amper Sands level still had no boss.  These and a few other related factors just became too much on my plate.... but y'know what i say?

WHATEVER!

I'll just get back to work.  I'll just start working on the next screens/levels and just move forward at a casual pace.  I've spent too much time worrying about criticisms and meeting expectations that I'd forgotten the most important things:  the fun and reward of creating a video game.  I'm too much of a perfectionist, and if I've got 1 person out of 99 saying bad things about my work, I get stressed and discouraged and try to figure out a way to change their mind.  Why?  It's not worth it.  Fangame the Game is arguably one of the coolest IWBTG type games out there and I need to remember that.

So, we're getting the Fangame Forums active again (hopefully), and I'll be rebuilding a beta testing team once again.  I've still got to reinstall MMF2 and get back into the production groove.  Shouldn't be too much trouble, I hope.  If any of you want to help out in some way, come to the Fangame Forums and contact me.  I believe I have a Beta Team application there but I might change it so don't waste your time filling it out just yet, in case you were going to do that.  Just PM me there and we'll work it out.



Just a few more thoughts.  I've read some pretty rough criticisms about Fangame The Game.  I just want to reiterate that since it's my first 'real' video game ever, it understandably has some very faulty foundations.  However, as I've learned more and more along the way, I have revised, rebuilt, and redefined the game several times over.  It eventually reached a point in which enough of the game has been developed that going back and trying to revise things more just wasn't worth it.  Instead, I'd like to continue moving forward with it and just focus on possibly giving the game the finish it deserves, and then taking all of the acquired design knowledge and putting it toward a new game later.

Also, I wanted to clear up a few things:

- Fangame's engine is completely custom, made by me, over the course of countless hours/days.
- A lot of the traps/obstacles/puzzles in Fangame were original ideas from my own mind, even if they're not original in the whole world of gaming.  I thought of a lot of them myself without "copying" other people.  I'm sad to say that some of my ideas I was so excited to add to the game, ideas that I hadn't seen in other fangames at the time, were later seen in other games before I got around to adding them.  This predicament means that I would be seen as copying.  I'm just not as fast as other people, I suppose.  Some game elements have been programmed into the game a long, long time ago, but development didn't reach a point where they could be used yet.  One example of this is the gravity panel system, which I had programmed into the game almost from the very beginning.  However, you don't even see this in action until the very, very end of the most recent release, and then I stopped before really designing any levels that really showed them off at all.

I guess that's it for now.  Sooooooo many other fangames have been created/started since I started working on Fangame The Game.  Development Hell is an understatement for sure.

Well hey everybody...

Not sure if anybody is still watching this thread, but I'm back to work on Fangame and have already been adding some stuff.  I want to rebuild a good Beta Testing Team, so if you're interested, head on over to our Fangame the Game Forums and contact my Beta Team Manager "popcorn".  You can find his name easily by clicking on the "The Team" link at the footer of any Fangame forum page and checking the Beta Team list.

If you ARE interested in beta testing, there are a few things you should know:

- You have to be able to play the game well enough to have retrieved the gun powerup (and possibly provide proof, at 'popcorn's discretion).
- You must be registered on the Fangame Forums.
- As of the current schedule, new beta builds will be released to the team every Friday.  Your regular availability must allow you to do your testing and provide some manner of useful feedback within an average of 2-3 days (so by the following Monday I should have a decent amount of feedback).
- Following these guidelines helps the project go more quickly and smoothly, meaning that more can get done faster... and better.  Playtesting ensures that the game remains playable, challenging, and most importantly, FUN.


Even if you're not interested in beta testing, head on over to the forums and check us out.  I'll probably post updates here once in a while, but since we have our own forums, it's best to keep most of it over there.  I just wanted to make sure I let you guys know what was going on.  The Fangame project was sorta big news back in the day, but then it went into dev-hell and sorta got forgotten.  I hope you guys haven't lost all faith in it!  It's coming back.   XD   ;D
