I have made a Talespin game! by rpiquel I have made a Talespin game! by rpiquel
DOWNLOAD IT, RIGHT HERE : [link]


Hey Baloo lovers ^^
I told ya i had a surprise project in mind, right?

This is it! I am making a Talespin game!!!

About 5 years ago (yes, you hear that right!), i started working on a game. I've loved Talespin and Baloo for ages, so i wish to make a Talespin game (so much potential!!) I didn't have much experience with Game Maker back then, so i only did a little bit here and then, just for my own personal enjoyment and to learn how to program a game.

But recently, i decided to get more serious about this, and here is the result!
THIS IS REALLY A PLAYABLE GAME, NOT A MOCK UP!

This is a "prototype", a very short playable demo of one level.
For now it looks like a "basic" platformer, it borrows graphics from other games.
But I have a ton of ideas for this project, and i may need some help because it's kinda ambitious ^^...

In the end, i want to make an adventure game (like a point & click or visual novel) with some platformers and shootem up levels.
I have fond memories of the Disney games of the 90s and I wished the best series ever had better games adaptations! So i'm making my own version! ^^'


And, of course, you can DOWNLOAD IT, RIGHT HERE : [link]


Just uncompress the file, then launch "Prototype.exe" to play.
If you play it, please tell me what you think ^^ I think it's kinda hard (on purpose because it's short) so i'd like to know if you beat it and how to improve ^^

Aww, man, it doesn't run on my computer :(
When I start the game the screen goes dark and then there are lots of pop ups like "file does not exist", "unable to load sprite" and "ERROR in action number 1 of Create Event for object controller:
Trying to set collision mode for non-existing sprite."

I made some screenshots:

It's a totally awesome idea nonetheless :love:

That's weird. What environnement are you running this on? (which Windows?) You've uncompressed all the files first, right? (not executed the .exe directly from the zip?)
The errors are basically saying they can't find the image files.

And, thanks!!! We're currently working hard on it ^^ You can watch some videos on Youtube : [link]

:oops:
Oh dear, I totally forgot to uncompress the files, I guess I was too excited XD
So now I did it properly and it works just fine! I played it but I didn't get very far, because I'm not used to playing on the PC and unfortunately I don't have a gamepad (although I'm thinking about getting one for quite some time).
I very much liked Baloo's smooth animation, his commentary and the animated image in the left corner. The music was well chosen, too, it perfectly set the mood :)
I think it couldn't hurt making the moving platforms a bit larger and enable Baloo to do damage to enemies with jumping on them.

Also I watched the videos and now I'm even more excited :D
The point & click demo is my favorite (I'm a RPG and adventure fan so it really hits the spot)!

To sum it up: I'm VERY impressed with your work and gonna watch you now and also subscribed to your youtube channel :)

Awesome!!! Glad to hear you're excited about it! (I am too, actually ^^')

And, that demo you've played is "old" now! The animation of Baloo has been much improved (actually being redone with the help of a professional artist!), as you may see in the videos. The final game should look much better than this prototype ^^
The game will also be easier (at least in the first levels) , and yeah, i've actually made Baloo able to hurt ennemies by jumping on them (this was shown in the latest video!)

The point & click part will probably the most important in the game (yeah, i also love point & click games / graphical novels myself!)

Oh and there is another playable demo (the shoot'em up prototype) here :

Well, I've not had a problem recently, but I was forced to stop using Internet Explorer a few years ago after one of those pop-up "we've detected some viruses on your computer, please download us to get rid of them" came up, I accidentally clicked "okay" instead of "no", and...
...Well, it started running and shutting down programs, and every anti-virus and malware program that I tried to run got shut down, and eventually I just woke up my brother and he managed stop it and shut down the computer. My mom later fixed the problem, but my brother literally did not want me using Safari or (when we eventually got one) my family's first laptop (my dad had one, but this was a personally use one) because he didn't want me screwing them up.
So, mostly, my problem is just bad luck. Now I'm just paranoid about downloading anything.

Shame the sprite for Baloo wasn't as good as this. They'll never make another Talespin game.

Maybe Disney won't, but I will ^^
You mean that my sprite is better than the sprites in the official games?

Yes! The spriets where puny and lacking expression. Just put in a lot of good facial expressions and actions and your a shoe in to surpase the origanal game!

That's exactly what I'm doing ^^ I want the characters to be very expressive, like in the show ^^

Are you going to add new characters?

rpiquel Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2012
Of course. This is mostly an adventure game, with some action phases. So there will be a lot of focus on the story, and all the famous TaleSpin characters will play a part!
If you mean playable characters, maybe in bonus stages, but Baloo will be the main one.

I feel a little silly, since no one else has had to ask, but...what exactly are the controls? I don't understand how to "fight" things.
Reply
:iconrpiquel:
rpiquel Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2012
Don't be, I know the explanations are not enough!

Controls :
- left and right arrows to run
- down arrow once to crouch
- down twice to see below
- space to jump
- alt to fight (hold for stronger punch)

This is explained by Baloo's bubbles but it's easy to miss them.

Ohh, alt. I must have missed that one. Thanks! Great job on the game. Did you use Adobe Fireworks for the images?

:iconrpiquel:
rpiquel Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2012
No, I used Photoshop (and Paint Shop Pro before that)
I'm currently trying to write the story for this game, I could use some help! See here : [link]

Wow, you've got a lot of cool ideas on there! I probably would've just gone through a sort of overview of the major events of the show. I like how you're doing all sorts of other stuff though with the war, cameos, Jungle Book stuff...all that. ^_^

rpiquel Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2012
Thanks!
Well some levels will probably be similar to some events of the show. But I want a new story.
For now I miss the main plot that could link all that...so, if you have ideas for that, tell me ^^

Perhaps it would begin within the realms of the TV show, then have something where Shere Khan seeds anger and desire for war between the pirates and the other civilians. He could have some sort of corporate economic reason of his own for this...maybe his company sells war supplies? Hah, Scrooge could get in on this action with lower-priced deals. =P Baloo could then be hired as either a fighter pilot or one who delivers supplies to soldiers. During a storm he could crash on some jungle-type island (clothes are singed from explosion, and he goes nude?) where the Jungle Book level is. That's about as far as my mind'll take me. Haha, I don't expect you yo use any of this, but, if you do, cool! ^_^

These are great ideas to start, thanks ^^
I'm currently trying to gather as many ideas as possible, and see what i like and works the best. Yours are probably the best so far :)
I think the thembrians should be involved in the war too, one way or another. Maybe over a stupid reason, because, well, they're thembrians ^^

okay controls are a bit of a pain to use and move around but sincerely it's pretty fun and interesting in principle i liked it personally hehe

rpiquel Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2012
Ok thanks, did you finish it? can you be more precise, why you think controls are a pain? i can surely improve that but i need more details. Have you tried playing with a gamepad?

:iconkarmakat01:
Karmakat01 Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
can't say i managed to finish it yet

the problem for me so far are the explainations for the fight take too long and you generally end up getting at least one hit if you don't know what to do at first. another problem is pretty much the camera doesn't move to let you know where to aim for the trampoline so you got like one chance out of 10 to aim it. same for when the big giant bad "bear" hunts you down and you nearly always fall between the platforms.
something that bothered me too is the "timing" between the spikes. it's hell of hard to jump all three of them AND get the coins, but impossible to try to pass them without jumping since their time coordination.

so well here is my point of view on it hehe

Ok thanks, that's quite useful ^^
Well you can see below by pressing "down" twice, that makes aiming for platforms much easier.

ah didn't knew that part lol
also a warning that the big brown bear is invincible might help too lol

rpiquel Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2012
He's not invicible, you have to concentrate your punch (hold the button)
Well for the final game i'll add more explanation, but for a short demo it's difficult to add too many things ^^

rpiquel Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2012
No, I want this to be a game for everyone, all ages ^^ Probably a little more "mature", but more on the story side. I won't do anything more than a PG rating.
Though in the final game I intend to add a "Jungle Book" parody style level, in which Baloo would be "nude" just like in the original film ^^

Ok. I was joking anyway. I'm more into Kaa anyway. I wonder what would happen if Baloo and Kaa meet each other? Sexy time? More lols.

thats awesome. What kind of program is necessary for something like that? I dig it! takes me back to childhood

rpiquel Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2012
I'm using Game Maker 8.0, with GML language.

It's not too complex to do games with it, but don't expect to do something like this in a few hours. It requires a LOT of work. (i have also drawn Baloo's animations and a lot of art, this really takes a lot of time when you're not a professional artist like me...)

The good side is : now i have spent years learning how to use Game Maker efficiently, i feel like I could almost do anything i want!

That's very cool. Maybe I should look into games as a hobby. I am also a professional artist so the animations and art wouldn't be a problem. Glad you got the hang of it! do you plan on making more levels for it?
Reply
:iconrpiquel:
rpiquel Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2012
Yes of course!
As I said in description, i plan to make an adventure game (like a point & click) with a lot of story/dialogs, with platform and shootem up levels in between. I think that's what would work the best for Talespin, because it had a lot of action but also a lot of scenarios/depth!
Ill be looking for artists to help on this project, would you?

thats awesome man!!! I wish I knew how to make something like this. How do you pick upt the explosives though?
Reply
:iconrpiquel:
rpiquel Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2012
You don't pick them up. Just crouch and push the lever to make the wall explode :) (yeah maybe that's a weird idea, I don't know ^^)
And thanks!! That's only the beginning, I have a LOT of ideas for this project, it will be more than just a platformer ^^
