Vaporized
A 2D RPG + Online multiplayer game.
By Sir Vortex

Screens and downloads are found at the bottom of my post.



---About Vaporized:

Vaporized is basically a platform game wich features a large range of weapons, spells and abilities for you to vaporize your enemies. It can be played alone in single player where you blast away monsters alone, or you can invite a friend to play (online) on your team, or a team of his own, to vaporize either you or your enemies.

You grow stronger by gaining experience used to select new or upgrade your old stats and abilities. There is no max level, only a few abilities has a max limit. Also powerful weapons and ammo is laying around the map, the strongest may be found as item drop from monsters. Monster and stuff does respawn so there is no reason to get tired.

As for now this is a beta version, and there are still work to be done before the final release. But all features mentioned are already in place.

I hope that you would take yourself the time to play my game, and post a reply back here about your experience. I am open for suggestions and I am able to survive your critics, also its always nice with some feedback saying how much my game pwnz! *cough

---About Multiplayer:

Al tho the game can be played in single player. It can be a lot more fun to play the game with a good friend.
Multiplayer can only be archived over the internet.

Requirements for online play:

Create your own network to play with a friend.
Or join mine: (I like my own game so off course I want to play with you) ^^

mouse 2 : use spell (select spell in menu)

I must admit I stole the barnacle. But what is a game without a thingy in the roof eating you?

---

Its like talking to myself here, tho I see the game has gotten some downloads.

Anyways, I would like to announce (to myself) that I have updated the game.
New "Amazing" features in the new version is:
- Extended map.
- A spell wand weapon!
- Two new "awesome" spells.

And more crazy stuff that can be read in the in game version log.

EDIT:
It is in .Rar format, so forget it, I cannot download it. Perhaps supply and .zip link as well?

@UberGamer I'm glad you liked my game. As for the controls, I have listed everything above, but if it still is difficult, I'll look into a way of making it more understandable. I am glad to see that someone has successfully managed to play multiplayer, shows it should work for everyone.

@69poomaster69 I took notice of your message and added a non packed version. Hope you will come back to try the game.

Thanks to both of you for posting.

I'm happy that people download my game. It makes it more fun to continue work when I know people try it.

@UberGamer Cool that you are back. I haven't done anything with the controls but fair enough, Ill get around it in the next update.

Anyways, I updated the game again, just a minor one this time. As always, info can be seen in game.

Also I had the honor of playing with 3 players today. I uploaded a screen shot to my first post.

@ui264
The barnacle is the only idea I've gotten from valve.
Its not a valve related "portal" but a common teleporter which was not invented by valve. ^^
There is nothing here from team fortress at all...?

Still trying to figure out if you liked my game or not.

@UberGamer Yes, I'm still working on the game. Haven't had too much time lately but its been a high priority for me to work on.
I'm afraid I haven't got around to your suggestions yet. Just be patient, I've got lots to add still.

@monaug5 Well for most of the part I just like to create things like maps for CS as well as games like this.
Also I was hoping for one of my friends to play this game with me when its done.

I like to release things, to get feedback with ideas, suggestions or some nice comments. Perhaps also to showoff what I can do. ^_^

Can't keep a post short.
Ive updated the game with some various things. (Yehaw!)
An example is that you now need to reload with the regular firearms. In case I'm being boring here the rest of the updates can be read in the game info.

You have 2 suggestions. And one of them is to fix the chain lightning ability.
I added it so off course I wanted it to work. I just need time.

For the controls part I don't really see how I can make it easier.
Except from spamming the controls in everyone's face.

Well, I'm afraid there is no official server, and nor was there meant to be any.

Now and then I host over Hamachi to play with my testers and sometimes with random people that drop by.

If you can't find anyone hosting you can either play single player or host by yourself.

@pentaro
Well you could join the hamachi network. People drop by there from time to time.

Anyways, just want everyone to know I've updated the game. Most likely noticeable by you guys are some new spells available. I have also spent LOTS of time remaking the HUD and menus in game to remove the interface shaking. Also Ive made it so you can actually go to the edges of the map without hud going crazy ^^. Off course that should not be noticeably by you anyways, since Ive added boundaries.

As for the next version I will be working on some completely new maps.

Well I kinda like to think I know a lot about programming myself. ^^
Don't really have too many problems with that kind of stuff.

Perhaps what I need the most is someone to help me with the sprites.
All I can do is a "stickman" and some "blocky" enemies.
If I just could draw real animations for the enemies I would make them have loads of wicked animated attacks.

I haven't stopped working. I may have slowed down tho.
As for now I have gone way over my head once again trying to make an inventory.
I'm afraid there wont be any release before the new inventory is complete.

Don't worry,it's not anything like yours,no competition.

It's gonna be like this:http://www.yoyogames...ames/show/55211
except no computors.
I'm also thinking of making the area much larger,so you can zoom around with the Eagle.

Looks nice, but I think You should use 39dll, because much ppls don't want to installing hamachi. I know it from my own experience :P 39dll is also a lot faster than GM Mplay. Good Luck!

Well I will not be taking on quests just yet, since I have something else in mind.

After my knowledge about coding developed, I realized that I had made a lot of things in a strange manner. Soon, I am hoping to have my totally remade version up here, so you can all 'admire' my work.
