Hello everyone. Well let me start off by showing some art from the game...
So here's a basic summary of the game. You play as KAP( Kappa Anti-Virus Program) as you install into a computer filled with viruses (virals). Throughout the game you travel through levels that make up a computer, places like App Central and Documents ridding the computer of the viral infection.
Another aspect of the game, and the reason why we began calling it Downgrade is the unique health system. The game is in 32bit and as you go down in health so will the graphics of the game. That means depending on your health level the game will either be in 32bit, 16bit, 8bit, and 4bit. 4bit being the lowest your health can be before crashing.
The game plays like castleroid .. or metroidvania rather. Cavestory is a better example actually.
We have alot of design and alot of art and music but no programmer at all so we're looking for any programmers that might want to join the team. We're looking for people that are pretty capable and can pull this game together in terms of coding. One thing I'm looing into is maybe getting the Torque X engine and making it fit our needs, how does that sound? Anyone familiar with Torque X? http://www.torquepowered.com/products/torque-2d
