Long Long Long Time, I know that but I was too busy working on Hello World! as besides its MMORPG game I want to make its my graduation project in college and my delivery date was last Monday 26/7/2010 and I want to deliver a stable bug free version but this version was containing minimal features but stable at same time.
The main supported features in this version was moving, wearing equipments, pick items from ground, throwing items, melee attacking, ranged attacking, leveling up and assigning attribute points.
Then I stopped working on it because I was having bad week due to that I have to make some paper for the military services in my country so It took from me lots of time. So I was having no time either for the blog or the game :S which is a bad thing but when I became by now free again I decided me and my friends on Hello World! project to continue working on it till the IGF competition as we aim to deliver it into IGF 2011.
I will continue working on the game as soon as possible may be we will start this weekend :) I dont know.
Another piece of news is that GameJolt made a GameJolt Jam this past weekend and I participate in it with a nice person called Bret Hudson since he is still not proffessional in flash like me so we decided to use GameMaker 8 So I started making a game called Mountainer where you play with a mountain climber whom wants to get to the highest part in the mountain.
The Game design and art (I made it) the code at the begining was made by Bret Hudson but since he was busy so I made the code (but he started it).
You can try a simple demo made for the Jam in this link.
I decided to continue the game but I will first port it to Flash using FlashPunk v1.3 so that to learn it as the only thing I learn was FlashPunk v0.7 which completely differ from v1.3.
