Topic: Kongregate / Vertigo: Gravity Llama (Impossible Badge Discussion)

Cirpacha: That’s a shame, but thanks for putting it to the test. Ultimately, there is nothing I can do about these bugs but so long as it is possible to complete the objectives necessary for the badges, that is what matters. I’ll make certain that issues like this are resolved in my next games.

Ben_B + Fricknmaniac: Just checked this and it looks like that is the case which is very irritating, I don’t know how I managed to miss these issues at the time of release, I can once again only apologise.

Blokespot: The ‘hidden’ trophies are physically in the worlds they say they’re hidden in, you must find and collect them to obtain those trophies.

EDIT: To anyone who has had issues with getting the World 7 trophy, I beat World 7 twice by obtaining the powerup and not using it but did not get the trophy, I found that after clearing my cache and doing it again I was able to get it.

Topic: Kongregate / Vertigo: Gravity Llama (Impossible Badge Discussion)

I don’t remember if I altered the medal thresholds for advanced mode or not but assuming you get all platinum/developer/diamond medals in normal mode, you should only need silvers + a few golds in advanced mode to acquire 100 medals overall. I can see how the switches medals would be messed up because of the need to get all the coins in advanced mode and if that’s the case then I apologise.

I will make an effort at some point to play through the game again and see where things are with advanced mode.

That’s right, but I like that people are also calling it diamond!

Amazing stuff, well done for beating World 8 without dying!

It might be that you need to do the same for Worlds 9 and 10 to get the big trophy, but I don’t entirely remember how I intended or implemented it.

EDIT: But it does say “8 Llama Heads Collected” in order to unlock so by all accounts it should be unlocked for you, evidently it’s one more bug that I will sadly not be able to fix.

Hey don’t keep frustration through difficulty to a minimum, I like a challenge. It was just a few bugs that prevented people from getting the imp.

Understood! I do like to provide a challenge and I hope that my upcoming projects will do just that! My only concern is when the frustration of a failure overwhelms the prospects of a challenge.

I have video previews of two particular games on my YouTube page at www.youtube.com/JindoUK namely ‘Blackout’ (formerly ‘Alone in the Dark’) and any videos relating to Pong. It’s looking like I will release Blackout first although they’re both very close to complete.

Hey everyone, creator here!

I’ve heard that there are some bugs regarding certain trophies/being awarded the wrong trophy and certain instances where people aren’t getting trophies/medals they should. While I really want to do everything to fix the game to accommodate the newly added badges, I lost the files in a hard-drive failure over a year ago and I have no way of fixing these issues.

Huge props to you Pimpin for managing to not only obtain the Impossible badge but also managing to capture it on video, seeing that and this discussion really made my day. It was always my hope when I released this game a couple of years ago that somebody somewhere would play through the entire thing and I’m grateful to Kongregate for providing the game with a second chance to do that (even though the game appears to have frustrated many!)

Thanks again and to everyone who played, I hope to be releasing more games again this year but I’m doing my best to keep frustration through difficulty to an absolute minimum in my future projects!

Topic: The Arts / Sword Icons

This was my first thought when I saw it beside the other icons, I’m not sure I want to remove the edge all together but here’s an alternative:

If I maybe changed the outline to a gradient that goes from semi-transparent around the edges to invisible in the middle + up the centre of the narrow part, that should fit in perfectly with the other icons so far, I will do this when I have more time!

Topic: The Arts / Sword Icons

I will post updated swords in a bit, along with a few additional icons.

I definitely intend to make use of particle effects in-game to emphasize things like the ice mist (additionally, leaves and flames would respectively fly out of the other 2 swords when attacked with)

EDIT:

(Handles improved, altered the ice sword, made the fire sword more fiery, + added bow’n’arrow, potion and thunder sword)

Topic: The Arts / Sword Icons

Onyx and Scaled swords are a possibility; the idea behind these current swords is that you have the regular sword (left) which one of the characters will start with. You then go on to find certain items in your quest that can be combined with the sword to get one of the other 3 (+ more hopefully)

I will work on the ice sword! It was essentially meant to be gas (think of liquid nitrogen.), I’ll add icicles as well.

Thanks for your feedback!

Updated and Added to:

Some icons for a game project I started working on, tons of others being worked on too but these were finished and I thought I’d ask around for feedback.

Hope you like them!

Topic: The Arts / Would you listen to this?

Good introductions, solid coherent structure, interesting sounds. These would do well as game music!

The best thing you could do to improve them would be to make them longer, although as loops they’re fine.

Great work!

Topic: The Arts / A General Question.

Brainstorming really is the way to go with conjuring, developing and enhancing ideas; if you’re really stuck you can always draw inspiration from other artists.

All done in Photoshop; I do occasionally use Flash for artwork but generally I stick to Photoshop for these sorts of projects.

Yeah I’ve also tried it by removing my head and arms, players in-game see whiteness despite it appearing transparent on the preview.

That’s so awesome, you’ll need to get pics if you can!
