    Celestial Motion Simulator? Or something with a nifty physics engine anyway.

    It clearly involves missiles, planets, and cool physics. This, you would know if you would read the Pixel's new site thread. You make me grumpy.

    What does the text in the corner say!?

    I bet the blue one is player controlled. Oh! or maybe it's a TWO PLAYER pixel game! (hence the two star gauges. Player 1 just blasted player 2 and got a star!)

    I like where this is going...

    Nice deduction, but it could also be that Player 2 is computer controlled.
    I hope it's multiplayer, though.
    But, how would Pixel work that out? {Connection wise}

    Multiplayer games don't have to be online you know :). Although it would be more practical/harder to code if it was.

    Meh, graphics.

    Couldn't those graphics be 'place-holders' until he gets the game engine mostly working?
    I wouldn't really bother with graphics until I had the actual game working, myself.

    I don't know, if you can make a gravity simulator then I'll be impressed. Besides, why for all the hate? Go blow off some steam somewhere else jeez.

    Re: Meh, graphics.

    Ah good, someone understands the normal process of game development.

    What you see here is what's known as "programmer art." Vector graphics are common for that. There's no point in making something look fancy if it's just gonna fall through in development or turns out to not even be fun.

    Re: I think Pixel is making a new game.

    I would blow your dick :D

    Besides that:
    I'm bashing graphics that looks like created within 2min in Paint.

    Not more, not less.


    And for placeholders:
    Prove that to me.
    Where are the placeholders used for Cave Story?
    Why didn't we saw them on a screenshot... oh yeah...

    Re: I think Pixel is making a new game.

    Good for you :D?

    Besides that:
    I'm saying I don't care about the graphics at this point.

    Not more, not less.


    And for placeholders:
    At least he's showing that he's got some work done.
    It's better than having nothing to show.
    It's just your issue if you don't like them.

    Re: I think Pixel is making a new game.

    Probably because he deleted them (or at least stopped showing them) once he had some WIP pictures with actual graphics? Have you been following Cave Story since the beginning of its development? Or did you only learn about it after it was already done, then went back to look for information?

    My college revolves around the video game industry, I know what I'm talking about just a little.

    Two-player games are possible without an internet connection you know. Just config either two gamepads, two sides of the keyboard, or even keyboard vs mouse.

    Re: I think Pixel is making a new game.

    Or make the game turn-based. Still, it would be better if the game had an online multiplayer mode. Y'know, 'cause not everyone has RL friends who'd also like the game. Or no RL friends at all...
