Cobalt visits Trunkopia
After 45 years in space, Cobalt has finally reached its destination… Time to go around visiting places and taking pictures of emblematic alien stuff!
Oh, a mission you say? I guess Cobalt can do all at the same time!
I wonder what those things looked like when they were alive…
Cobalt’s first touristic stop are some caves in one of the coldest areas of Trunkopia, where one can admire vestiges of an ancient age.
Who might he be?
Just arrived and someone’s already talking about the mission!
Cobalt can’t enjoy a bit of touristic sightseeing without being annoyed right away, clearly.
It appears Cobalt was being awaited… some unclear business seems to be happening around the old Trunkopolis human colony, so Cobalt’s personal affairs need to wait.
Cobalt meets some robotic locals
Apparently they don’t seem to enjoy Cobalt’s visit, which is a shame. Maybe they would have been able to show Cobalt around.
The non-robotic locals seem to be a bit nicer
After leaving Trunkopia’s snowy region, Cobalt arrives to a somewhat crowded Mycelian town. In the picture Cobalt can be seen posing next to a famous museum.
However it seems that the locals are having some trouble as well… will Cobalt ever be able to relax for a bit?
Inside the old base and the caves
After leaving the town, Cobalt encounters some sort of abandoned base. It seems that the base is also the entrance to a small cave system, home to the baddies who attacked the Mycelian town.
Their building style is quite unique, so Cobalt decides to take a picture of it as well.
That’s not very nice of them
After some time spent shooting, rolling and collecting loot, it looks like Cobalt is about to reach the heart of the base…
While running around, Cobalt encounters some prison cells. Apparently some fellow mycelians were captured, and they tell agent Cobalt that some time ago the baddies that live here used to trade robot parts for prisoners. What would they even use those for?
The bounce-around tunnel
After finding a secret exit, Cobalt finds itself bouncing from wall to wall, the plants making it almost impossible to progress forward…
At the same time, it seems like there’s noise coming from the other end of the cave. Something important is waiting, Cobalt can feel it.
What will Cobalt encounter at the other end of the cave?

We’re back in action!

Cobalt visits Trunkopia

After 45 years in space, Cobalt has finally reached its destination… Time to go around visiting places and taking pictures of emblematic alien stuff!

Oh, a mission you say? I guess Cobalt can do all at the same time!

1I wonder what those things looked like when they were alive…

Cobalt’s first touristic stop are some caves in one of the coldest areas of Trunkopia, where one can admire vestiges of an ancient age.

2Who might he be?

Just arrived and someone’s already talking about the mission! Cobalt can’t enjoy a bit of touristic sightseeing without being annoyed right away, clearly.

It appears Cobalt was being awaited… some unclear business seems to be happening around the old Trunkopolis human colony, so Cobalt’s personal affairs need to wait.

3Cobalt meets some robotic locals

Apparently they don’t seem to enjoy Cobalt’s visit, which is a shame. Maybe they would have been able to show Cobalt around.

4The non-robotic locals seem to be a bit nicer

After leaving Trunkopia’s snowy region, Cobalt arrives to a somewhat crowded Mycelian town. In the picture Cobalt can be seen posing next to a famous museum.

However it seems that the locals are having some trouble as well… will Cobalt ever be able to relax for a bit?

5Inside the old base and the caves

See you next time!

This week in Cobalt #4 http://www.oxeyegames.com/this-week-in-cobalt-4/ http://www.oxeyegames.com/this-week-in-cobalt-4/#comments Sun, 28 Dec 2014 19:38:52 +0000 janeator http://www.oxeyegames.com/?p=1902 Happy holidays!

How’s visiting family (or whatever else you do!) going? In my case, it’s keeping me quite busy!
However, I had enough spare time to check the Oxeye blog during the 25th!
What’s so important about that, you ask? Well, our dear community member Librus wrote a very interesting blogpost to celebrate such day and holidays!
Go read if you haven’t already! The link is here.

“Spartans”?

spartanCobalt says he has no idea what you’re talking about.

Cobalt might not be an ancient fighter about whom legends are written (yet), but every metalface who thinks of himself or herself as a decent fighter must be skilled in the use of sharp objects!
That’s where spears -and other stuff!- come in.

arsenalPointy! Sharp!

In the new update a bunch of new melee weapons and equipment is going to be included. Isn’t that awesome? I feel like dueling someone every time I see the new swords. Wait, did someone say dueling?

Check that out! I won! Now who wants to duel with me?
Aw, seems like we’ll have to wait a little longer.

That’s all for this year!

And again the year comes to an end. Happy new year everyone!
I hope you enjoyed these small blog posts I’ve been doing until now. Hopefully now you want the next version even more!

Next week there won’t be a blog post, probably. The week after that… we’ll see!

A Holiday Special by Librus http://www.oxeyegames.com/a-holiday-special-by-librus/ http://www.oxeyegames.com/a-holiday-special-by-librus/#comments Thu, 25 Dec 2014 03:07:34 +0000 thewreck http://www.oxeyegames.com/?p=1891 happy

Hey there, folks! Librus here, the Cobalt community’s resident writer and part-time artist! You may also recognize me from a few Sand In The Gears episodes. For those who know me, yes, it’s about time I get to share my talent with the wonderful chaps at Oxeye. You’ve probably seen my works on the Cobalt Forums, and if not, you should check it out! Wonderful people there. Love it if you could join us!

Now, for today’s little special, I have a Cobalt-Related holiday tale. It’s an old one, back when I was… a grumpier fellow, I’ll just say. I’ll leave it to your crafty imaginations to see where the inspiration from this comes! So gather around, and grab a mug of hot cocoa! Or whatever takes your fancy, rather. Are Metalfaces even capable of drinking, come to think of it…? No matter!

Hit the jump to read!

How Librus Nearly Ruined Cobalt for Everyone-

Every Metalface in Cobalt liked Cobalt! A lot!
But Librus, however, he did not.
He hated the game! The rolling, the smiles!
He wanted to wipe out the community for miles!

For every Deathmatch, he was pummeled! Then crushed!
For every good weapon, the other guys rushed.
The other gamemodes? Fah! They were no different.
No matter the team, he lost to each pigment!

Oh, all the teams, Red, Green, Yellow and Blue...
The others were all so OP! That much was true!
But how could the Metalface get so tight-fisted?
Was his concept of fun just thoroughly twisted?

Maybe his head wasn't assembled just right!
Or perhaps his brain casing was just a little too tight.
But the community, so say them all...
That his little metal heart... it was a few sizes too small.

Now, we tune in on Librus in his cold, metal lair...
(Where he stared down at the CTP field with a cold, metal stare...)
"Soon will be a game, and we know what that means...
Pow! Roll! Ping! Pang! Oh, stop the noise, please!"

"They'll deflect their bullets, shooting and more...
Playing those games that they all so adore.
And I'll be stuck here, bad as can be.
OOOOHHH, those hunks of metal, they're all so OP!"

And Librus paced, this way and that.
(If he was still human, he probably spat.)
And he wonder and wondered, with his mind that is best...
How could, tonight, he just get some rest?

But then! He had an idea.
A horrible idea.
A terrible idea.
A game-ending idea! (Oh no, right?!)

"I know just what to do!" the old bot' laughed to himself,
Grabbing his jetbike keys from his old shelf,
And into the battlefields, Librus did speed...
To steal all their items! What a wretched, dark deed!

He climbed atop what seemed some Trunkopolis heights,
The city, half-asleep with it's flickering lights.
And slowly, but surely, Librus worked his way through...
And nicked everything there! What a rude thing to do!

From map to map, Librus flew by,
His sack of loot growing in the night sky.
"Just this one house, then I'll be done!
Just in time before the rise of the sun!"

He landed down in the rough, rocky sands,
And unfurled his sack with his sly hands.
But just as he started to stuff away the plug-capture mark,
Came a small a small Metalface, normally unseen in the dark.

"Why mister, oh why?" asked the tired robot.
"Why do you swap all the upgrades I've bought?!"
"I just had a hard game, heck yes, I have.
Now explain yourself, you white-plated lad!"

"Why, my dear comrade." The sly Librus lied.
"I'm just swapping them for something more than an upgrade you can buy!
A gun, powerful! A new weapon, with which you shall stride!
A new item that you shall be able to fire with pride!"

"I've just got a quite a lot of old junk in my bike!
And I've just realized it's the middle of the night.
Even merchants have to rest sometime.
So I'll be right back. Next morning! Next time."

And with that lie, planted in that bot's head,
Librus shook his hand, and sent him to bed.
And with his sack full of his ill-gotten gains,
He made it off, quickly,
To the trapper plains!

Librus heaved and hauled his massive loot sack,
Until it teetered on the edge of the map.
"Oh, to DESTROY IT ALL! It's so OP!
I'll look back one last time, see how they curse me!"

But instead of foul cursing filling the air,
Or instead of tragic cries of despair,
The sound of laughing, play and joy!
Despite knowing all their loot was destroyed!

"W-what's this! They're not raging at all!
There's team games! 1v1, heck, I even see a free-for-all!
They even cry 'GG'! How can this be?!
They play without weapons, upgrades and, most of all, me!"

And with that... he realized. It wasn't about winning!
It's about having fun! Good times! Grinning!
And in the community it's thought, in the community they say...
Librus's cold metal heart regained size that day.

"These items... I must return them!
For my sin I must condemn!"
And so Librus quickly did speed,
To return all the items! Hooray! Yippee!

The crowd cheered! Woot! Woohoo!
Items abound! Score multiplier x2!
It was a good day, and in the end...
Librus found many true Cobalt friends.

Well, how about that. Touching! True friendship and good times is what it’s really all about, right?

Now, I have to take my leave! The guys doing Intel Reports don’t know I’m supposed to be here, not being the… best at retrieving information. Not saying you wonderful chaps may see me in the future!

Toodle-oo, and happy holidays!

/Librus

This week in Cobalt #3 http://www.oxeyegames.com/this-week-in-cobalt-3/ http://www.oxeyegames.com/this-week-in-cobalt-3/#comments Sun, 21 Dec 2014 17:42:39 +0000 janeator http://www.oxeyegames.com/?p=1880 Hello again!
Time flies, doesn’t it?
Today we take a look at a new feature to be released with the next udpate: Taming!
(read more here)
Don’t be a coward, jump onto that beast’s back!
And then try not to fall and get bitten!
Yes, that’s right! In the next update you will be able to tame wild, fearsome beasts like the Sabretooth Hamster and mount them to battle!
After a little while of standing in the beast’s back, however, they will stop looking fearsome to you. Maybe they’ll even look cute. But not to your foes!
The following video displays the ways in which an honorable rider tames beasts -this time a strange case of a non-aggressive Hamster, for which not as much practice is required- and rides them to battle:
Looks like our hero found a worthy opponent! Fair fight.
Sorry! That’s all for today!
Yes, this post is a bit short. But shorter means better, right? Right?
Oh well, guess I heard it wrong. Hope you enjoyed the post though! More next weekend!

This week in Cobalt #2 http://www.oxeyegames.com/this-week-in-cobalt-2/ http://www.oxeyegames.com/this-week-in-cobalt-2/#comments Sun, 14 Dec 2014 18:39:56 +0000 janeator http://www.oxeyegames.com/?p=1869 Welcome back!
As many of you might know, guess or assume, in the next version there will be some new weapons for you to shoot, throw or slash into the baddies’ faces…
This week, I present to you two new curious throwables that can be quite useful in some situations.
(read more here)
You’re not alone!/Need help?
Beep boop, incoming!
Got trouble with too many enemies? Now you can call for allies that will teleport in faster than a rail bullet (note: not really) to aid you in your fights!
All this technology magic is done using a Robot Beacon, a small gadget with antenna that, once deployed, will emit a signal calling for help.
Spiky red glowing destiny caught mid-flight.
Is the room too full of robots? Did you run out of beacons?
Worry not, because here is the latest weapon designed by and for true hacking geniuses: the hack grenade!
This useful tool will allow you to hack whichever mechanical foe it collides with first, or the nearest unit within a certain range if thrown to the floor. See that predator? It used to mean trouble. Used to.
The hack grenade it’s also quite a better weapon than the hack device; it doesn’t force you to stand still waiting for enemies to kill you while using it. What does that mean? It means you can ride predators to battle! Those baddies will know what it feels like to face such a machine now.
(video here) link to video plz!
In this video you can see how to use both of the above weapons for practical purposes, plus some stealth suit sneakyness!
That’s all for today!
I hope you enjoyed this week’s blog post. While shorter, I’m sure it delivers some of what most of you like the most: action!
Be sure to come back next week to check out what else Cobalt has in store for you!

This week in Cobalt #1 http://www.oxeyegames.com/this-week-in-cobalt-1/ http://www.oxeyegames.com/this-week-in-cobalt-1/#comments Mon, 08 Dec 2014 19:23:30 +0000 janeator http://www.oxeyegames.com/?p=1837

Hello!

Janeator here!

Trif has been quite busy trying to exfiltrate the Oxeye Headquarters and whatnot, so for now I’m in charge of posting on this blog! For those who don’t know me, I’ve been making maps for Cobalt for quite a long time now, and I also hang around a lot in the Cobalt IRC channel.

But that’s probably not what you are here for!
So hit that “read more” button for some…

Adventure footage!

Starting this week, for 4 weekends I’ll post something new -that you probably haven’t seen- on the blog.

Today, I present to you… The Seed! A fine Interestellar ship that Agent Cobalt will use to travel around space, or Planet Trunkopia in this case, and which will be your headquarters during this mission!
The seed is equipped with various rooms, each one with a different (perhaps sinister?) purpose.

bridgeLook at that impressive 3D display!

In the bridge you will find the ship’s computer, who also appears to be Cobalt’s only companion in this remote region of space. After 45 hard years for Cobalt, it appears the destination has finally been reached. Action, at last!
The computer doesn’t understand rolling and shooting, but you will be able to use it to check notes, write reports and consult the Galactipedia encycolpedia, for checking what that odd looking gadget you just found is!

armourySo empty… for now.

In the armoury room (which also doubles as teleport room) you’ll be able to select the weapons and shield that you feel like using in your next landing. At first it will be empty, with only a Matter Prototype in it, but as you progress in your adventure you’ll find other weapons that will then be added to the armoury.
The ominous green screen in the middle of the room will allow you to teleport to different parts of the planet where your adventure will continue.

hullsChange your looks! Also your stats.

The hulls room, located under the armoury room, will allow you to change your hull parts so that you can decide which stats to increase or decrease. This will allow you, in example, to run faster or be more resistant to certain effects.
The room also includes an upgrade station, which is useful for upgrading your weapons and equipment.

cobalt's room Having a good time.

Cobalt’s room isn’t exactly the most exciting room in The Seed, but it seems to fullfill its purpose. And I must say that Cobalt really looks to be having a good time being surrounded by plants and some good radio tunes. Is that Cobalt’s old house in the painting on the wall?

corridorThe corridor, useful for… walking?

The corridor… well saying it connects rooms pretty much sums it up. Apparently Cobalt also likes to have some plants in it as well. Nature! Neat stuff.
Also let’s not talk about the locked door.

Time’s up!

Sorry but that means this is the end of the end of this post. I hope you enjoyed reading/watching!

Be sure to tune back in during the weekends for more blog posts!

Cobalt-141030-01

For the last 4 weeks we have been doing pre-testing of the next version including adventure mode with selected community members, and so far they have reported 353 bugs/feedbacks/opinions. We have equipped the bug-spray and are now in the process of going through this. We still don’t know when this process will be done, but so far we have tested chapters 1,2,3 and 4 with 5,6 and 7 remaining.

If you didn’t watch the dev-streams, here is screenshot!

Here we go I got up early and here`s the result of ~4h of Coding Fun:

You wanted an evil game you got yourself an evil game. Click to feel like a monster. Click more to feel even worse. Right click to hire minions to do the dirty work for you.

Made using the löve2d lua engine
For Windows just download the Executable extract and run it. For Mac OS, Linux etc. download the .love and check the Löve2D homepage for more information on how to run it on your system.

This game is broke to hell. Read the readme.

What I learned over the duration of the jam:

  • use version control
  • don’t learn and use a new plugin while developing under time pressure

Goolord Rex: Destroyer, Annihilator, Cat?

by Rian

262s7rp

I only had a couple of hours to make it so it’s unfinished at best, and there are no sounds. It’s written in Scala (so it runs on the JVM and should work on mac, linux and windows) as functional and pure as I can handle. The graphics are done with Swing. The game is a shooter with a twist. You catch enemies with slimeballs and collect them to get points. The more points you have the more difficult it gets. You have a limited amount of ammo, but you can retrieve every slimeball, so don’t let them fall. I think the theme Evil is currently only present in its difficulty, but the themes Cat, Slime, Arcade, Shooter and Fast are definitely included.

HTML5 game, so should work on most things.

So… only discovered your compo yesterday evening… Spent about 6 hours I think total. Construct2 great for prototyping.

Hopefully while provide 90 seconds of fun!

EVILEST GAME EVER

by DolanCZ “the most not programing guy on Cobalt IRC”.

It’s a basic console game I created just for fun, since I am not able to do advanced stuff, just because I don’t know how. I am really noob in this, but since any game counts, I joined this community event!

Download windows (.exe)

(There is a bonus file there too)

When you discover the main theme of this game, it’s really easy to finish it. Plus it is kinda only for people that know Oxeye with some inside stuff around this community.

You can finish this game in less than 2 minutes if you are fast.

“This game is just some fool’y things put together in 2 days” – Have fun!

Evil Sheep Game

Samuel “MrOverkill” Meyers

I was a little over-ambitious with this one, but i’ll apply fixes to it and make it work better as time goes by.

This is a game where you gather crap from the good sheep and throw it at the evil sheep so they don’t turn your good sheep evil.

The game is written in Java, with python scripting making up the gameplay. It’s also public domain, so modify it all you like. :)

Closing Words:

I would like to thank everyone that participated in this Jam! It was really fun to see so many people never having made games before finding the courage to try! I would also like to thank everyone that streamed during the event, it really created a feeling of cohesion, it was as if we were all sitting in the same room working on things… Finally, I would like to thank everyone that helped others out during this event. Thank you all!

Janeator:

Had a really good time during the game jam!

It’s been a long time since I had done anything artistic (other than mapping :D ) and I feel proud of the results, really enjoyed the time I spent making it.

Thanks again to JanSedivy for pulling me into teaming up with him, and for all the code he’s done!

Also thanks to NameIsNotName for the track :)

Hopefully we will soon release a “full” version of the game!
