Introducing my next game for the Commander X16: Cavy's Quest. It is a Sierra-style point and click adventure game using the XCI engine. I have started writing the story and have the first zone all planned out so far, and this sketch of the title screen. Obviously, these aren't final graphics, but placeholders until they are done - by me or someone else! If you are interested in contributing to this project, please DM me or visit the development Discord server: https://discord.com/invite/u8JwnBg


I will be in contact with you and we can discuss what you want to do. I need help with graphics, animation, music, sound effects, and configuring the levels.

If anybody is interested in helping, I've set up a new Discord server to discuss game development: https://discord.gg/3B8n93

I most need help with designing 4bpp (16-color) bitmaps for the levels, and sprites for animation. If you are interested in doing some pixel art, come drop me a line.

I'm sorely tempted Matt.. sadly I fear if I get stuck into this it'll come at the price of less work on my hex game. If only I had more time! 😁 Keep us posted!

Thanks, John. This will be a long-term process, probably not being done until well after the the X16 ships, but I hope to have the first point-and-click adventure game that is available for it. If you ever wanted to try making a pixellated guinea pig, I'll be there for it!

New demo video, showing the current title screen (new graphics are in development now!) with original music from Joshua Jay Salazar (also in development, but this is the current draft and the basis for our heroine's theme):

It's come to my attention that these Discord links are expiring. So, if you want to join, you should be able to find the server by searching for "Cavy's Quest".

You can create an invite link with an indefinite expiry by clicking the "Invite People" button on your server menu, and then "Edit invite link" on the bottom of the window that opens. Select your options, click "Generate a New Link" and the new link should be good for however long you set it, even "forever" if you set it to never expire.

If you later want to manually expire the link, you can do so from the general server settings, under "Invites", it'll list all the active and valid invite codes. Hover over the invite to show the "X" icon that will invalidate it.

I am taking development of this game private, as my vision of doing this free and open source is just not working out. I will be starting a campaign soon to fund development of this game as a commercial product, but still having a free demo that will be uploaded and maintained here. Follow this thread for more updates!

P.S. The XCI engine itself, however, will remain free and open source for the foreseeable future. Please feel free to use it for your own games, whether they will be commercial or FOSS.

Another new demo on YouTube:

 

This is a speedrun through the first two zones of the game, which are now fully programmed, but still with only sketched out graphics. Now, I am going to create polished graphics for this whole section of the game, which will be be published on this site as a free download. Coming after that will be a Patreon/Kickstarter campaign to help finance the completion of the game.

Enjoy!
