Worlds of Possibility

Some of the more interesting parts of working on a game entirely from scratch are the things that happen accidentally. As I was extracting the specifics of Tactinomicon’s tutorial level to a definition file, I realised today that, with the exception of some small parts of the World Map, all of...

I've been trying for months to find my copy of Final Fantasy Tactics... there are no good alternatives. Or, very few... I dunno. Disgaea and the other Nippon Ichi games are all very good, and Jeanne D'Arc on the PSP is very enjoyable too. Not a huge range, granted, but there are alternatives out th...

It's hip to be hexagonal

At some point in the first half of 2008, while I was working on Multiwinia, I was struck out of the blue by inspiration – an almost fully formed idea appeared in my mind (similar to what Chris described here ) for a Tactical RPG. I spent the next 30 minutes or so in a typing frenzy, desperatel...

Topic: On Crate Weights?
Replies: 20

Weighted crate drops work based on player score. I'm working from memory here so this might be a little off, but the basic way it works is as follows. First, it determines whether or not do actually do a weighted crate drop. The odds of this are based on the total score of all the players in the gam...

That's a very cool idea. If I get some time, I might be able to make a few changes so that it works properly.

Just to dispell the mass halucination you all seem to be suffering from here, burning Multiwinians do NOT set other Multiwinians on fire. If they did, a single burning Multiwininan from a grenade explosion would be enough to wipe out an entire army.

Thumbnails for maps are restricted to 8 bit and no more than 400x300. The editor wont save one that breaks those rules, so the file size is kept pretty low.

I don't see how this would work - as soon as the 'phantom' started using his bonus power-ups, it would become immediately obvious who it is.

It's called the C key.

Just a heads up, since there have been a lot of requests for it, a volume control has been added to the game and will be in a coming patch.

Rocketwinians isn't time limited - it effects your team for the remainder of the game.

Constant posting of the same requests over and over even after it has been confirmed that they are coming isn't going to make it happen faster. It's just going to anoy people.

Pitch your Power-up idea!

So, the game is out and by this point I imagine you've seen a good chunk (if not all) of the power-ups that can come out of a crate, both good and bad. Now I'm interested in what ideas you guys come up with for power-ups! For example, I just had an idea for a bad crate which would cause the crate an...

Well I went through the old list and added the rest of the people who hadn't been added (everyone who had missed the cut off), as long as they had displayed a reasonable level of activity in the beta forums. I also added Orange Soda since he asked, but anyone else who didn't put their name on the li...

The editor is coming although I can't give you a date. Hopefully it won't be too long. We appreciate that you all want to make new maps to play on, and while you are certainly free to do so, I would urge you not to spend a lot of time on them; the final system for the mods is still being considered ...
