Pixel Purge 2
Hey everyone, it’s Porter, from Epic Shadow. I began development on Pixel Purge 2 awhile ago, but put it on the sideline to get another project off the ground to earn some money. That game (Daughters of Pytheus) Will be done in about a month, and I’ll be going back to Pixel Purge 2 until it’s done. I’ve read nearly every comment that’s ever been left on the original Pixel Purge, and have got a lot of great feedback. That being said, I want to ask some more specific questions and generate some proper discussion on the sequel.
1.) How do you feel about a campaign mode? The first game introduced a tiny tiny portion of the story, and was simply an arcade game, similar to Cell Warfare. I’ve been playing with the idea of having actual campaign missions, that further the story between the Pixels and the Invaders, and offer various forms of gameplay. Examples are,
-Destroy X of some enemy
-Defeat the boss
-Protect a certain person/ship from enemy fire while escaping an area
-Survive for X amount of time.
-Reach a certain location (think super long map, with a goal point at the end)
Those are just a few ideas, but as the developer of the game, I think these would be great additions.
2.) Bosses. How can you possibly go wrong? Any thoughts?
3.) Play in various ships, rather than just the starter ship from the first game. Each ship would upgrade in its own way, and perform uniquely.
That’s about it for now. I’ve got plenty more thoughts on the game, but I don’t want to spoil too much, just want to get some opinions on the major additions/changes.
Also, as a side note, Pixel Purge 2 will not be released under the Epic Shadow branding. I’ve formed a new branding under the name of Gemfruit, and the franchise will carry over to that name. I just want to make this apparent now, so that people don’t think the game was stolen when it’s uploaded under a new name. You can follow development of Pixel Purge 2 when I get back on it in about a month, at http://www.gemfruit.com/blog
Hope to get some great feedback from all of you, let me know what you think!
