Going to Try to Revive This Project
OK, after being turned down by both Desura and Steam during the summer days this project slowed and Nonulok and I went onto a new project (which is still being worked on) but I feel that Tik Tok Tank still holds a place for some... especially me. I am going to finish this game as it was intended then bring it over to IndieCity.com which as far as I can tell is a nice little place that is for indie devs and not catering to modders with little focus on new indie projects. After the Christmas season I should have it wrapped up and ready to go, but I will not make any timeline promises due to how busy we are at Enguised Studios.....
Current Status and Features of Tik Tok Tank
This game is still being worked on (under different name). We are currently making some gameplay changes to make it more like a level based game instead of world explore and find stages. We will release this game (as originally intended) in the future after we establish our name and game quality a bit more. But for now we will make fun and enjoyable games in established genres instead of doing a mashup one off the start. Please comment or PM me (Neuntoter) if you have questions.
1 Explorable over world map:
This is the main map that you explore to find Bases and Dungeons. More things to find will be added through free content updates.
12 Created Base maps:
These are pretty much standard style start - finish type of levels. These are depicted by an elevator like tile with an arrow. We plan on having over 100 of these, which may always change to be a bigger #...
These are randomly generated from the loading of each level. The style of these levels are very basic and simple. Destroy the enemy spawners that are scattered through out the level.
Currently there are only about 10 types. This # will also grow to feature at least 25 different types including water based and air based.
Currently the only modes are the Bases and Dungeons. We are planning on at least 4 new modes.
Basically this will be a mode in which you fight through enemy boss waves. Each stage will have a boss along with some adds. Once the boss is defeated you move to the next "Arena" to do it again with a new boss.
Infinite Random Mode:
Almost the same as a dungeon but it never ends. Every 5th stage is a boss, but upon beating the boss instead of going back to the World Over map, you go right back into a wave of random maps again.
We are going to implement a menu system that will let you choose between Std and Widescreen rez and windowed and full screen mode
