  1. So far, I've released two games, Color Odyssey and Gray Matters. The site is for my independent video game development studio, called Ecorproductions. You can read more about it here
  2. Many changes to the website! If you are interested, I suggest checking up on it often because additions are made every day, as well as blog updates
  3. Hello. So as you may or may not know, I have an indie game development studio. Recently, I've created a website for it. I'm looking for advice or suggestions on how to improve it. The link is here. Thanks in advance for checking it out
  4. A bit off topic, but who says the unverse ever started? Feel free to call me an idiot if I'm wrong, but I believe there's a theory that says the universe could have always existed but that it's existence is sort of like a wave. The universe expands, reaches a limit, collapses, and then repeats, or something like that, meaning that a deity would truly be a deity and not an organism.
  5. To answer the question simply, yes. Now, for the longer, more complicated answer. I believe something that is sort of fundamental among most people. I believe that the universe is infinite, and that it is constantly expanding. This means that every combination of molecules and atoms exists somewhere in the universe, as well as certain areas that have different laws and that work differently than our location does. For example, somewhere in the universe, magic exists. Because of this, I believe that not only does God exist, but it is impossibe for Him not to exist. This goes for every other religion as well, even parody religions like Pastafarienism (not sure if I spelled that right) or the religion that worships an invisible pink unicorn. Now, even though I believe this, I don't believe in all of the ideals that were told to us through a religion's prophet. I think that yes, during that time, God may have felt that the ideals in the Bible were the right way to live, but humans used to think that the Earth was the center of the universe and that it was flat. My point is, opinions and beliefs change over time. During the time of Jesus, God was a more primitive being and believed different things than He does now. I keep using Christianity, but this is true with any religion. The deity worshipped during the days of it's prophet is not the same deity we worship now. At least, that's my opinion on the subject
  6. A friend of mine and I are working on a project called Hunger Games: Source. It's exactly what it sounds like. We need your help to make it. We need programmers, modelers, and anyone who can help. Email me at [email protected] if your interested.
  7. I'm friends with anyone who wants to be friends, and I'm so weird I even consider myself weird. This is sort of like the introduction thread, but more social-networky. A thread where you can find people who want to be friends, more than just interacting
  8. Hey guys. So, basically this thread is for making friends internationally. Just tell a little about yourself and it'll go from there. I'm an indie game designer and I like brownies. I'm from the United States.
  9. It's essentially a gritty reboot of two previous Ecorproductions' games, known as Space Mission #1 and Space Mission #2. If you're interested, you can download them for free as well as a few other previous Ecorproductions' games here.
  10. Hey guys. This isn't a Heartless thing, by the way. As you may or may not now, I actually own a small game developing company, and I have for about 3 1/2 years now. Recently, I realized that all of our stuff sucked, and I need to start over. Because of this, I am rebooting the company. I'm starting new projects, abandoning the old ones for possible future use, revamping everything, and generally taking it more seriously. Now, here's where you guys come in. Running a small business isn't cheap, and especially not a game developing small business, which needs more technological equipment which is more expensive. Currently, the team is only me, two other programmers, and two business partners. All of us aren't exactly rich, so I am asking that you please help us. I'm coming here because I know this community pretty decently, and I know how civilised you are. It's always been my dream to make great games, and I need you to help me make it true. If you're interested in helping, you can stop by http://www.gofundme.com/Ecorproductions. Any and all donations are helpful, and greatly appreciated. If you donated, let me know and I'll make sure to get you free copies of our first game, which is currently in development. Thank you guys again, just for reading this. It means a lot to me, more than you might know. Now, enough of this huge wall of text. See you later.
  11. Hey guys, I've decided not to post anymore reviews until I get internet. The limits of my phone are pretty crippling, and I think it might be having an effect on the views. Once I get internet, more reviews will be posted, but I'm 95% sure I'll probably move over to YouTube. Voices and inflection don't translate into words, and I think they'd help the reviews be more interesting. Thanks for reading! Until next time!
  12. Hey guys! I'm playing solitaire online on my kindle fire and I thought maybe you guys might want to play with me! The app is by MobilityWare and itms tons of fun. If you're interested, try to find me! My nickname is "Heartless Gaming." See you there!
  13. This didn't fit in the OP. The original website for Notrium is www.instantkingdom.com/notrium.
  14. Notrium ----------------------------- System(s) - PC Year Released - 2003 Genre - Indie, Survival, Sci-Fi Developer - Ville Monkonnen ----------------------------- About the Game --------------- Notrium. Such a strange name for an equally strange game. You play one of four character on an exploration space ship, but while exploring the Hive sector, th ship is attacked by missiles! You escape and get stranded on a planet called Notrium. I wonder where they got the name of the game from...anyways. You can play as the human captain, the android engineer, the psionic medic, or the alien stowaway. You manage to escape to the only working escape pod as the ship is destroyed. You have to steer your way through the missiles to crash land on the planet, and from there, survive until you can escape. Each class has it's own special abilities and attributes and they can all affect the gameplay and the ending of the game. Yes, this game has multiple endings. Depending on the class chosen, various journal entries will appear every ingame fortnight. Mother of God, I used "fortnight" in a sentence. No RPG games for a while. Anyways, no matter what class you choose, the gameplay is still basically the same. You have to find a way to survive and make stuff on an alien planet while tring to escape. Now, onto the story! Yay! Story time! ----------------------------- Story Review ------------ *insert movie trailer voice herez A starship, by the name of Var' Equinalin, is exploring the Hive sector, when it comes upon the planet know as Notrium. Suddenly, missles fly from the planet's surface and slam into the ship. You run the the nearest escape pod, throw yourself in, and slam on the "launch" button, not knowing what's in store fo you, but whatever it is, it's better than what's here. *regular voice now* How was that? Did I do good? Do I get a cookie? Fine, I'll bake my own cookies. That's the story. The rest unfolds depending on what race you are and what ending you get, which I have no knowledge of because I fail at this game so hard. Usually this is the longest section. Uh-oh. This might be a short review. *gulp* ----------------------------- Graphics Review ---------------- I won't lie to you, the graphics are impossibly amazing. Seriously. This game was made by one guy, I think. I don't know if he did all of the graphics himself, but if he did, we need to go on a crusade and accuse him of witchcraft. Lots of things are animated, and all of the animations are beautiful and smooth. The game is played in a top-down perspective, so everything is kind of flat, but it's a beautiful kind of flat. The day-night sequence creates awesome lighting effects. Man, every section is short in this review. I mean, the graphics review is usually pretty short, but this time it's really short! Um, the graphics in the game known as Notrium are the most amazing and spectacular representations of data by pixels that I have ever laid my eyes upon. It is indeed a greatness and stuff. There, that's a little bit better. Now, onward! ----------------------------- Gameplay Review ---------------- Ok, this should help beef up the review. The gameplay is pretty sweet. Notrium is played from a top-down perspective, but unlike most top-down games, the player can move in any direction while facing another. Sort of like a first person shooter. It's a really nifty thing, allowing you to do so much more activities. It's like making bunk beds with your step brother. References asides, I really like the way it works. During the game, you find different items and objects around the terrain and stuff, such as plants, edible mushrooms, weapons, and machine stuff. You can take that stuff, combine it with other stuff, and make new stuff. Basically, this games about stuff. The gameplay mostly revolves around finding the tools and materials to make useful things, defend yourself against the alien peoples, and ultimately beating the game. Most characters start off with a weak attack and no weapons. Except the alien. That mo'fo' is strong and deadly. Like gas after eating cheese. Anyways, in contrast, the human is a little weakling and will probably die many times. Ingame weather also plays a large part in the game, but only above difficulty level "noob." Oops, I mean "easy." Heat and cold will affect your player, and if either reaches an exteme, you start to die. Standing in the shade or by a fire will help keep them balanced, but with the shifting day-night cycles, it's really hard. Luckily, you can make enviro-armor. Yay, science! Oh yeah, areas are also randomly generated. There areas are organized into blocks, and the blocks North, East, and West are explorable. The South is not. Nobody goes there. There's racism. ----------------------------- Reviews -------- Story 3/5 Graphics 3.5/5 Gameplay 4/5 Replay Value 5/5 Final Rating 4/5 Heartless Score B ----------------------------- That's it for this review guys! Hope you enjoyed! Sorry about the absence of Review Wednesday last week. It was Spring Break, and I had planned to do a Review Weekend, but I got busy and wasn't able to. Really sorry! Sorry this review is so short, but I couldn't really say much. Oh yeah, I'll be getting internet soon, which means longer reviews! Yay! And, possibly YouTube series and video reviews on my YouTube channel! Not sure what will happen yet, but I want to do more because this is really fun, and that seems like a good place to start. Let me know what you think! See you next time!
  15. Thanks! I had to cut out two sections because of my phone's limitations. I was planning to do images in this review too, but I wasn't able to. Sorry! By the way, this review took about 2 1/2 hours to write and 1 1/2 hours to type and post. I really want to do stuff for you guys, haha.
