The list of upcoming games for Pokitto!

Hi,

I was thinking it would be nice to have a list of upcoming games for Pokitto.

Fun! Will this be a pinned “living” post? Like, will games cycle in and out? And if so, maybe a screenshot / gif under each?

And is it just honor system for being realistic and removing your project if you let it idle too long? Because, y’know… game dev…

Edit: Hmm, I guess you really answered all of my questions in the first paragraph… I should read closer :stuck_out_tongue: But still: gifs?

This is the first I think I’ve seen this one. Who is working on this!? Is this your project @Hanski?? Crabator was one of the most played games when I first got Pokitto! So I am definitely curious about this.

That one’s me. I should say that Crabator was the initial inspiration, but it has gotten away from that and become its own thing. It’s more of a slight nod in Crabator’s direction at this point. Here’s a gif (didn’t know if I should put it in the wiki and clog up the post):

I love this list already! Lots to look forward to :slight_smile:

I should take my list of projects more seriously and try to find one I can add :eyes: but I broke my femtoIDE install and haven’t worked on anything in months :cry: I should fix that…

same for the list of projects haha

  • I’m working on a common engine for both ARIAT (vehicular/cyberpunk) and Escarmouche (tactical/military, followup of TAZS).
  • I technically have a few prototypy GIFs (including a core-working prototype for Escarmouche), but I haven’t made them any of them an active project yet.
  • Most likely, Escarmouche is going to be the upcoming. (I need a full-game with a defined scope to proof my engine, so I can use it reliably for ARIAT which is going to be quite big)
  • I’ll start a devlog for Escarmouche when I’ll go back to it (probably next week)
