Hello, my name is Stephen and I think now is the time to reveal my project here;
After a year of research and development I feel confident enough to share my progress on my main project which currently is called 'Dinosaur Dungeon'. It is being developed in Game Maker Studio Professional and I started working full time on the project in May this year.
Where can I see gameplay?What are your goals?

What is Dinosaur Dungeon?
It is an action adventure game loosely inspired by Zelda, with a theme surrounding a yet unseen conflict between mammals and reptiles. It has been heavily inspired by the original (yet never released) pitch for Dinosaur Planet back in 1999.
Currently my goals are to achieve core functionality and create a complete dungeon instance (hence the current title) as part of my submission for my games art masters study; however my ambitions are set beyond my course.
If all goes well, I have intentions to complete this project as a passion project and will keep this post up to date with my exploits. The prototype will be released on itch.io around the time my course ends (the submission deadline), after which I will be free to take the game in a new direction, and hopefully get to collaborate with other creators.What have you done so far?
I will be detailing my progress every week in this thread and on my twitter feed at @Straw_dev
. Significant progress has already been made, however I will be revealing details gradually over time.
For now, here are some tidbits to tease you ;
- Graphics scaling and uncapped frame-rates
- Full KB/M and Controller support
- Lighting System
- All sprites and tiles produced by myself (So far)
- Enemy behavior system
I'm making an action adventure game in Game Maker Studio, the prototype will be released on itch.io this September. Hopefully you guys will enjoy it.
