  • Awesome!

The story (in short)
It's all about the Gems of Enigma, people for generations have tried to collect the gems as they are priceless and possess really cool powers. Friends of our Hero seek the Gems but do not return home. So the hero heads off to the Enigma to rescue them. (How original)

The first level is like a Tutorial, a mysterious old man named Dahvun(Changing his name to Morbane) has created a simulation of what can be expected inside the Enigma. Grags(Changing his name to something really cool too like "bob!") has to complete the mysterious old mans trial to ready himself for the Enigma.

Myself and a friend will be working on the cinematics/story line over the weekend. He is much better at wording things than I am, I would never do it justice. We belive we have the base of our story line ready, with a few a twists here and there.

Overall I belive the game to be decent with some unique qualities. If you like puzzle games then this is most deffo for you.

I have in mind around 2 months before the campaign is complete. I would love some feedback, as I can introduce any new ideas as I go.


If you download the map, please leave feedback, even if you hated it. I'd like to know what it was you hated it (whether I can put it down to personal preference or not) If I think you have a point i'll change it.

Any feedback will be appreciated. Please tell me what you liked and disliked.

Thanks reading. Hope you enjoy the game.
 

Whoareyou.

I've taken the down the cinematics map as feedback there is very much useless to me at the moment. Me and a friend will be working on the cinematics over the weekend. I'm after feedback on the gameplay. Not the cinematcis. I'm about as literate as a snowball machine.

"So its Buzzblocks #2?"

no, I have never completed a campaign for buzzblocks. This campaign will be called Enigma, as the name "buzzblocks" is complete tripe.


EDIT: Updated the first post with more description.

Hate having to repeat myself.

Minecraft. :D
I don't usually play puzzle games, and I'm not usually good at them, but I liked it. The second block (where you have to trap the monster) took me a few minutes to figure out, but other than that it wasn't too hard.

Make an option to skip the starting cinematic.

I liked the part where you have to use yourself to destroy the wooden barricade. That was pretty clever. :thup:

Thanks Tom, means a lot to me that you liked it.

I don't like the starting cinematic myself, but feal it's important as it gives an explanation on controls. I.E Arrow keys and esc to change the camera. I was considering removing the cinematics for error messages and have any error messages come up using a game trigger. You think this would be a better idea?

I'd give you an allmighty +Rep for your comment, but I have to spread it about first, i owe you one.

Thanks again.

Working on a Map
Really well made map. The puzzles were really good and its easy to grasp the idea of the map.

I was kinda confused when I first started the map, but some experimentation helped me understand tons of the things in the map. I think its cool to have lots of unknown elements, especially for a puzzle map.

Looking pretty good for a "simulation", am looking forward to the finished product.

Thankyou Zack1996 really appreciate you testing it. +Rep

As for the "simulation" the campaign will be very much the same. Enemies will obviously hurt you as will the blast off bombs. Also you won't have the annoying tour guide (Dahvun) interupting you when you make mistakes (You will have to figure that out for yourself).

I have a few cool ideas on new obsticles that will be implemented throughout the campaign. I found Teaspoons search light model a great idea which will most deffo find it's way into the campaign.

Again thanks for testing. Means a lot.

Because none of us are as cruel as all of us.
I gave up at the second puzzle. I didn't know what to do. Call me stupid or whatever, but... haha.

You have to trap the Baddy (Goomba) so he can't move. But, If you gave up so easily, Enigma is most certainly not for you :)

Thanks for the feedback :thup:

    Food trucks are killing out here because Bars cannot open unless they sell food and the governor ok'd the use of a food truck in front as serving food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Just not enough food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    a buddy of mine just opened up a food truck and he is killing it but he is a great cook and has awesome food right in the middle of the pandemic too food trucks are immune to pandemic because they are take out in Texas you will always be able to get take out or delivery
  • The Helper The Helper:
    He is in the different food facebook groups in houston and posts videos of him making his food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    he is killing it
  • jonas jonas:
    @Varine with the restaurants, there surely is a lot of luck and hard work but most restaurants fail because they suck. Flair isn't right, economics not well thought through, food is mediocre or sucks, location is bad, etc. If you're thinking about opening one, make sure you're looking at the stories of those that would be playing at your level, don't let your hopes be dragged down by all the subpar restaurants out there.
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.
  • jonas jonas:
    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years

    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    My daughter just got back from school at Georgetown TX, outside of Austin and said there were 100 cases in the last week but she also said nobody was wearing a mask anywhere so people mask up and stay safe!

    @Gyah Yeah I figured they aren't particularly valuable, but they'll at the least act as a baseline for some entry level work somewhere.
  • Varine Varine:
    I now see how horribly I spelled @Ghan
  • Varine Varine:
    I had a rough morning
  • The Helper The Helper:
    that field is going to explode and though there is competition there is going to be room for all levels in the coming years imho.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Why are we competing for rough mornings? :(
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't want to compete for that, yall can have it.
  • Varine Varine:
    @The Helper I'm trying. Once I am more prepared to be figuring out school I'll probably ask for your advice
  • Varine Varine:
    Right now I'm just trying to get through the pandemic and figure out how I'm going to pay for it, and figure out what I need to get a job at Best Buy instead of a kitchen somewhere.
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    oy just catching up on the discussion above. @Varine yeah I usually alternate between claritin & zyrtec, depending on whatever my body decides to reject at the time lol
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    the more I use it the less effective it gets over time as my body accustoms to it so I try to not use it every day
  • S songbird:
    Glad to see some interest in the IS3 NUON reprint. :)
