Classic Gameplay, Evolved
Revisit the classic ‘Thrust’-style gameplay from the golden age of Atari, evolved for modern gamers as a twin-stick shooter. Negotiate the twists and turns of tunnels and caverns under the surface of Mars, Ceres and many more planets across the solar system. Engage with swarms of enemy Laser Pods in bullet-riddled combat. Rescue hostages before they can be turned into Brain Drones that swell the ranks of Doctor Quantex’ army. Deploy Marines, turret guns and other assets to turn the tide of battle. Recover fuel, data chips and other resources to aid you in victory.
I’m back with another episode of my game postmortem and this time I’m talking about the pixel art in Captain Kaon.
Pixel art is a fantastic old-school art style that can make your game look really cool. But it also has a few drawbacks and challenges for you game development. In this episode of my game postmortem I’ll talk you through my experiences making the pixel art in Captain Kaon, where things went right, and where things went wrong.
If you’re interested in making games, I hope my experiences and the advice I pass on in my game post-mortems are of use to you. Otherwise I at least hope the story of how I made my game is entertaining.
