"Little Ninja, Big Adventure"
This little gem was a project I was working on a while back. Though not a fully realized game and just a tech demo to see what features I could impliment with Game Maker. I planned an open ended world, where you can choose your own adventures to go on (non linear). As the ideas evolved I decided to start making a demo game to test the capabilities of game maker . A simple silhouette of the character was created that could translate on a small scale. Backgrounds sometimes disguised the character, but thats what ninjas do.
Developed in Game Maker 6.1 which is a free program with some restrictions. Now to develop some features I used the built in code editor to custom build some locked features. Now clearly by having a code editor available, one can do anything with Game Maker. Building a particle engine was one of the challenges. I developed a few iterations of particles, I developed one that reacts to its envorment and the player by "splashing". uppon the impact a new particle is generated that will bounce and eventually fade away.
