LagMac Studio is a “one man band” team. My name is Gino, i am 44 years old and i live in Italy in the food valley, the land of “ham of Parma” and “Parmiggiano Reggiano”. Between an ham sandwich and a piece of cheese, between my real job and my beautifull wife (i Love you Vera), i find a little bit of time to develop my video games.

Code Name EFZG - Minecraft docet

lagmacstudio Blog

The word “docet” is a latin word and in italian language means “insegna”, in english language “teach“. But what Minecraft teaches ? It teaches who the graphics is not all in a video game, but it must be appropriate to the game type. So i started from this basic and important concept and i decide to use a graphic style like in Minecraft. Below two images that represent the first test.


Code Name EFZG - Pushable objects

lagmacstudio Blog

One of the most important things in the game are the pushable objects (aka PO). Like the enemies, when are pushable, these objects can be moved around the level and their use is essential to complete some levels. The pushable objects is represented by a light brown cube. The PO can’t be destroyed by the player by shooting to it.
The image below shows the 3rd level with one PO.

Code Name EFZG - the enemies

lagmacstudio Blog

In this post i talk about the enemies.
First of all a clarification : all characters in the game are represented by primitive solids like cubes, spheres and so on.
The solid who represents the enemies is the cylinder. In the game there are nine different types on enemies all represented by a cylinder but whit different colors. When the player shoots, one time, to an enemy, the cylinder color change into white regardless of the start color and the player can pushes the enemy around the level.
But … What happens when the player shoots twice an enemy ?
The answer is very simple : the enemy dies.
Therefore : one shoot and the enemy become pushable, two shoots and the enemy dies.
But there are two important aspects concerning the enemies : the respawn and the back to normal.
In the first case the enemy is respawned at the last its known position, in the second one case the enemy back to its original state, so you needs to shoots it again.

Code Name EFZG

lagmacstudio Blog

Today i want to speak to you about the project EFZG. First of all : you don’t ask to me what does it mean EFZG, because i don’t tell you. The idea behind EFZG is great : few elements, basic shapes, a fun gameplay where your brain will be your best ally and where the appearance is not everything. A level that appears complicated might not be, otherwise a seemingly simple level might be complicated. Below some images fromUnity3D where you can see the prototype of the 2nd level.

  • Brown blocks = Walls
  • Green blocks = Fixed obstacles;
  • Yellow blocks = Diamonds to be collected;
  • Black cilinder = Enemies;
  • Cyan block = Door;
  • Grey block = Key;
  • Sphere = Player;
