Has anybody been working on a new CoCo game lately? Do you have any old
unfinished projects that you might want to revive? I think we could use
some new games on the scene.
Last year I started the graphics for a game I really wanted to complete,
nicknamed "Microsloth Mission". It would be a graphics/text adventure
where you had to infiltrate the Microsloth headquarters and find "Bill
Kates" or some other mission like recover a secret CoCo floppy disk, etc.
Because I was a huge fan of the Interbank Incident game, I wanted this game
to act similar with a mouse-driven environment where you pick up your
inventory and drop it on the screen or vice-versa... grab it from the
screen and it goes into your inventory area. Also would be buttons for Up,
Down, Left, Right, Talk, a Hand, etc.
I finished some of the graphics which are the campus entrance, the
lobby/reception desk, the hallway, elevator entrance, an office, etc. and
the human figures that would occupy the building, which are about 5
famales, 5 males, and Billy Boy himself complete with glasses. None of the
code has been written and hardly any of the game's interactive objects have
been drawn that will be placed around the headquarters, other than the
people and a few objects.
If I attempt to finish this game it could take a few months to
complete. Is there any interest in such a game?
