Re: Pony Joe's: Post Not-So-Great Things That Happened

One of my family's cats is really sick. Took her to the vet, and they've concluded that it's kidney failure, and there's nothing they can do to help her. They've given her some medicine to keep her comfortable in the short term, but she'd scheduled to be put down next week. She's 11 years old, which...

Re: RUSP: Rainbow Unicorn Sunshine Palace 3: Getting Better Every Day

Being creative is hard. I keep trying to put my ideas to (virtual) paper, but a big part of me is just screaming in my head that whatever I write is trash and that I should delete what I've written and never try again. As such, I can only manage to write in short bursts when I can squeeze past my an...

Re: RUSP: Rainbow Unicorn Sunshine Palace 3: Getting Better Every Day

I (finally!) have a therapy appointment tomorrow, so hopefully we can talk things over and come up with some sort of strategy. Sorry for uselessly spinning my wheels here these last couple days. I just've just had no one to talk to for over a month now, and things kinda boiled over.

I've beaten Halos 1-4 (Reach and ODST included) on Legendary and really enjoyed them.

I was way into stick figure and sprite-based fighting cartoons on Newgrounds back in the day. I honestly still think that plenty of them still have great choreography, even if the creator wasn't able to come up with much art on their own.

I've gone ahead and updated things to control tighter and switched the shooting controls off of Shift. The gravity bug should be taken care of, too. I'll leave this prototype up for a while to collect feedback and just let things settle in my head before moving on to level design.

The mechanics are interesting and I like what you have so far. I'd suggest making acceleration/deceleration quicker so the game's physics don't feel as floaty. You might also want to change the default shoot key because Windows by default will think you're trying to enable Sticky Keys if you mash S...
