2013 was, I feel, the first “real” year of Silver Moonfire’s development. We released two games, got to visit PAX East, and started moving on what I feel is the right track for the company.
(This is the start of a series of posts dealing with design or implementation issues in Silver Moonfire’s games.)
Cops ‘n Robbers is an arcade style game similar to Pac-Man. As with any arcade game, the movement controls have to be spot on. Ironically, Cops ‘n Robbers uses a system that gives you LESS direct control.
To start from the basics: you play a bank robber trying to avoid cops while picking up coins in a maze-like environment.
We are using Unity3D for the new engine. This makes cross platform releases a lot easier.
Unity also has a web player, so we will be releasing development builds here! Try out the game as it’s being developed!
