Yesterday we had our defense for our game in SE... and again it was a failure I guess.. but before I tell why I'll introduce first our game
Our game is a base defense but in monopoly style.. so like monopoly you should buy properties and make money.. but the twist is the main objective of this game is not to bankrupt your opponents but to destroy their bases.. By the way it has no name yet ... so help me in thinking an appropriate name for our game.. snapshot of our game to be posted later... and now back to my story..
The line up for the defense was first the Soguko (karen's group), second is the Plok(raphael's group), third is the pShooter(marlon's group), fourth is the yummyMath(janine's group), fifth OUR GROUP.. 6th hide and destroy(ate liz's group)..
So as you can see we are the fifth group to present but unfortunately we became 4th because one group did not show up.. each is given 15 mins to present.
Again an intermission number... before what happened to our defense .. i'll first what happened in the defense of the second group because this has a significance or it is related to us..I hope their group will not be mad at me for not asking their permission anyways I think they'll understand :)
Their game for me was awesome..really for beta version. nice graphics and game play ,networking is functioning well etc... btw i forgot to tell what is their game.. their game is like battle city but with added features and twist... but my opinion for this game was the opposite of our teachers..
SHE SAID THAT THIS GAME IS SHALLOW ETC..TO SUMMARIZE IT SHE SAID THE GAME SUCKS!!!..
she even said anu un na ba un? sa totoo lang hindi ito pang sf... btw this is not the same words she spoke but it has the same meaning...
But wait! there's a game more "shallower" than this a game that is simply similar to the game which it is patterned.. i will not name the group or the game but if you see it you'll agree with me.. It's ok sana if our teacher had also the same comment about that game but her only comment about that group is about that graphics.. huh?... why is that so? hmm i don't know what the reason is.. but i don't care.. The shallow thing pala.. yah the game in the first place is a bit shallow but raph's group made things to improve it..like runes, debuffs friendly fire, bounce effect.. etc.. THEY MADE WAYS TO MAKE IT MORE ENJOYABLE duh!
W tf.. really stupid.. but this is not the real reason why we are pissed of...The real reason is this. Enough them..
Now I'll tell what happened to our defense..
Mark, our group leader presented our game.. first we explained how it works every little detail about it. We've first used tiles for them to understand what is happening at first they didn't get it but after sometime the panelist got it except for our teacher. It's like our alpha presentation then we presented our BETA VERSION containing some graphics which was really stolen from warcraft and God of war XD core features of game working fine except in networking.. In networking sense we can only synchronize the movement of the chars and their gold other features didn't work well.. anyway our beta presentation was worse understood by our teacher.. so basically our defense is a failure.
W hy? because again our teacher didn't like our game again.. or maybe she will not like anything we do. we never know :)). One reason is she didn't get what our game is all about..another thing she doesn't understand our graphics. she said what is that thing.. the one like a shit.. third reason is she don't think that what we had done meet the requirements for beta version(60% of game)..etc..etc.. ah wait.. we even said OUR GAME IS A BIG NO NO for the sf in the present.. really? so what games are suited for the sf? CAN YOU ENLIGHTEN US?
Didn't understood what our game is all about....
But wait! . didn't just mark explain all the bits about it in our "alpha presentation", and we even used almost of our time for explaining! She even asked why did we even bother to show that if there's a beta presentation.WHY nga ba?..is it FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND OUR F@cking GAME? Besides all the panelists got it except her.. another thing is the game play is so simple MONOPOLY but it's just the main objective is destroying bases not bankrupting others. WHAT THING IS SO DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND THERE?.
Didn't understood what our graphics...
But wait! is it really the graphics or just you? our projector is too big to show what that thing is.. duh! just look at our screen shots below .. it's for you to judge. if it is really not understandable.Maybe the one she thought that we are doing is the same old monopoly.. duh! d wala kami nyan originality... I thought being original is better than copying.. hmmm maybe not for her.. ow before i forget she said that there's should be a unique thing in the game.. O YAN na nga baga.. OUR GAME IS UNIQUE..
screen shots of our game
Didn't think that our game is for beta
But wait! she is the one who said that in beta the requirements are
- functioning well -our core game functions are functioning well
- networked - our game is networking even has partial sync
- improvement of the alpha - i think she saw our alpha.. and it think that it is a more improved alpha
she even said "MASKI PA PANGIT YAN MASKI STICK FIGURE YAN basta nag gagana" and why now she's so vain in the graphics... INCONSISTENT?
Didn't think that our game is suited for software festival
But wait! so what games are suited? could you please be specific why? because i think ,, ow not only i some my classmates think that our game concept has a future .. meaning it is GOOD! so i'm really confused why..
I guess my post ends here. .. to be edited if a thing comes to my mind which is related to this..thats it for the mean time . :)
gudluck for those who will do their defense today :) kaya nyu yan..
ow before i forget last one thing .......................
