Default GeoVertex - Game Creator

Hi everyone!

EDIT: This game has now been released, please refer to the new thread here:
New Thread!

I'm here to announce my upcoming game, GeoVertex! It's a game creator, and unlike others like it, has no pre-done templates to follow, allowing you the freedom to create any type of game you can think of with whats available.

It comes with fully integrated online sharing, allowing you to share your creations and play other peoples, complete with a high score for each game and a rating out of 5. So if you don't like creating, you can just download other peoples levels and jump right in!

Features:
  • A large selection of attributes to choose from to add to your objects.
  • Integrated physics engine, including joints (great for creating vehicles!).
  • Custom HUD, allowing you to choose what your buttons look like, and where they are.
  • A selection of shapes that you can scale, stretch and rotate to create your game objects.
  • Quick loading times, so no having to wait around for levels to load.
  • Many different game types can be created, from jumping games, to platformers, to mazes, and many more.
  • Online sharing, allowing you to share your games, and play other peoples.
  • Local score boards, and a global high score for each game created.
  • Fully universal, play on any device, and scale the games you create to fit any device you are using.
  • Future updates to add even more attributes and features.

Now while you may not be able to create absolutely every type of game there is, there is still a lot of freedom to create lots of different games, and if there are any features that you need to create a certain game that you are thinking about, then all you have to do is let me know, and I can add it to my list for future updates!

So for example, you can't currently make tower defence games, but I have already planned to add the features required to do so after someone requested it! So all you have to do is ask!

Anyway, check out this trailer and let me know what you think!


Low bandwidth Version | Pop Up


The game has been submitted, and so long as there aren't any problems, will be released within a couple of weeks!

So feel free to ask any questions!

UPDATE: for those of you who don't want to read through every page, there's a list of attributes you can use in the game on page 2, post #16. There are some tutorial videos to show you how some of the features work on page 4. Lastly there is a video on page 5 showing a quick walking robot and tank I made.

STATUS: as mentioned on page 5, post #50 (where there's a better explanation) the app has been rejected, and what Apple said, in relation to the level files you can download, "the contents of these files include sufficient scripting of object interaction that these are not appropriate for downloading into the app" (I honestly think this is stupid and don't see any reason the files wouldn't be appropriate!). I'm still looking into it, but online level sharing is seeming less likely. I've proposed a solution in the post on page 5, so would be good to get some feedback for that.. but basically the only difference will be that you'll have to wait a couple of weeks at a time for new games to be added (which will then be included locally with an update, so no downloading), but you'll still get high scores, ratings and sorting just like before. (unless of course Apple has a problem with that as well, but I gather they won't)

Thanks, thats just what I like to be reading!!

Also, at some point in the next couple of days, I'll try to post a list of all the different attributes that can be added to an object, so you can start to get an idea of what you might be able to create. (so basically you create your objects, add attributes, such as movement, physics etc, and then put as many of those objects into the word as you want)

Until then though, for those of you who are interested, it would be great to get an idea of the sort of attributes you'd all like to see, and maybe if they're not included already, I can add them to the first update!

I think this is extremely complicated but how about adding a programmable character? You could make cool quests and stuff.

Thanks for all the replies!

And yes there are a lot of aspects of this game which can be complex, like setting up triggers or joints, but most of the more basic features are quite simple to use! But its a very open game creator, and for it to be that way, it has to be quite complex! and it will therefore require some learning to master it and make the most of it. Especially if you want to make a more complex game!

And there are help files for every aspect of the game included, as well as some tutorial videos which are streamed from youtube, and i'll also be doing some guides on the website if there are specific things people want.

So what do you mean when you say about having a programmable character? In what way would you want to program the player? And what sort of quests were you thinking about? So that i can get an idea of what would need adding!

Thanks again for all the replies! Keep em coming!!
