    Copycat, Cee ann - Chapter Parasite
    Copycat - Cee Ann, an action platformer game that involves RPG elements, the story focuses on a parasite trying to take over the world, starting from a missing spaceship being lost years ago. Now being found landing into the earth, people have tracked the crash site trying to discover what happened. You as the character, must find the missing people who were investigating the area and solve the mistery behind.

    Cee Ann was delivered the task to find certain plants near of the area, they would be used later for medications. Soon as the ship landed, he recieved a message, to stay away and complete the task, as soon as he found the last ingredient, he found a strange life form, he contacted and was ordered to follow, as he went through few caves, he found an infestated zone with a dark and dead environment.

    He soon gripped his sword and rushed to find the peculiar creature, the more he kept digging through the forest, he started losing their vision from all the fog around, till he found a kind of parasite in the form of a tree, it was raising from the ground with distinctive colors and shape, Cee Ann would have sliced it, but he was interrupted with another call, it was not safe to touch it as it might merge with their systems, just like everything sorrounding him.

    He was ordered to leave the place as it wasn't the best idea to stay in such place, soon he went to the town nearby, nobody was around, only the waves of air running, it seems it was evacuated.

    An strange human figure appeared in a cape, some mosquitoes and flies were following as there was a smell of rotten meat, people were getting infested as well, but now the question is, to kill it or let it go and keep himself safe, apparently this new parasite was feeding itself from the sun rays, which led to a chaotic moment as these organisms started taking its own shapes and started controlling others. They grew its own intelligence from their mix of hosts.

    Cee Ann didn't knew any of this, using his fire blaster against the possesed body, causing it to grow up and develop faster, soon he switched to their ice beam, which managed to stop it from moving, but once the ice was melt, they would feed from the liquid, apparently anything was giving strength to this.

    The escape was a success and he managed to get away, but now the place was doomed, nothing able to fight it as it kept draining the energy away from the earth.

    The life in the world was getting dried out, the monster became mighty powerful in so little time, causing desperation and havock among people, many succumbed to think about it and decided to end their lives, but at the end, the parasite would hesistate to take their fallen body as their new host, reviving them undead.

    Months happened, half the earth was now taken away from humanity and creatures, life on the planet started to become corrupted along with the sky, a dark purple sorrounding every place.

    Cee Ann and the Cryogen: Mythical Parade
    After the devastating invasion of the parasite, the Cryogen project was started, leading to tests, which caused harm and mutation among creatures, it is said that such area was taken over by the same creatures created from it, apparently they took the intelligence of their hosts, leading to a chaotic era of war between the mutated living forms, now you as Cee Ann: must find the origin and the leader behind to end this for once.
    Cee ann manages to go through the lab, but doesn't have enough power to defeat such enemies, causing to go down into the destruction of it's energy core, their remains were burnt into dust and their memories were lost somewhere in the zone.
    The project CYAN v2 takes place after, using the backup memories that were made one week after the parasite, this one doesn't have the same personality or speed, but for sure, it's more than determined to find it's way back and seek revenge.​

    Cee Ann versus NAVOS Voltack technologies LLC
    Such is the growing attention for long living, Cee Ann now being upgraded goes to put a stop to this secret group, but in the way, they find something interesting... Now it's a battle between the past and present, the reconstruction of their bodies was a success, but with altered memories and goals, perhaps, these confusing memories would be brought back to it's original state. This individual might cause havok and tension to the world, seeing how a distinct figure returns with destruction on it's way.
    Cee Ann now must be careful through these situations, only time will tell if he's able to determine their fate.​

    Is the cross thing a visual effect or a debug tool? It looks pretty out-of-place in the game's current state.

    I had no idea what was going on in Build 0C so I played Build 02 instead.

    Not the most intuitive controls, but it's fun once I got used to the mechanics.

    What threw me off is the double jump being a backflip. I kept accidentally jumping into spikes and bottomless pits. I liked the ability, but I recommend using a different key for it. Something like F to flip left and S to flip right. Also, I recommend only activating the hook if I'm facing it, so I don't go flying backwards unexpectedly.

    It's a decent start, once you have some actual levels I think it'll be a blast to play.

    Worked on it! Yeah!
    The first stage will introduce you to the controls :p
    Too many people complained about the backflip for the same reason. That's why I made a menu, so you can decide to use it or not.

    About the hook, I'm gonna take a loot at that.

    Thanks for playing, I will release the next build in a few days!

    I just played your game and it was AWESOME! (I feel it's easier than I Wanna Be The Guy Gaiden, until the boss, and when you get the controls down) But I did find a bug in the current version with the humanoid boss. Basically, at one point the boss put me in a damaging loop that I couldn't escape so I had to sit there watching me bouncing on his uppercut until I died. SO, that is something you should look into. Other than that it's a pretty fun game and I hope that you continue working, improving, and refining this cool game you have here!

    Jumping up the wall at the beginning was really frustrating. It would be fun to on the same wall constantly like Meat Boy.

    It took me a while to find out I could climb the tree. You can only climb some trees and it confuses me. Maybe make them different colours.

    It moves nice and fast.

    Ah, my bad. Windows 10.

    It is a known issue with GMS 1.4. You need to enable vSync ;)

    I'm afraid that windows 10 isn't gonna be supported in a while.
    It's meant work for XP and 7 only
     
  33. The Sentient

    The Sentient Guest

    Odd design choice, considering vSync is the only thing you need to enable, which will also reduce the chance of graphical annomolies on all targets.

    XP? Is that still a thing?

    Just played the Old Version on my Win 10 PC
    Everything seemed to run well.

    One of the only GM EXE files I've downloaded that wasn't flagged by Windows.
    Even my own games get flagged. How did you get past that?

    that's a hard question, I am the only one on the design and programming of the game, plus we have so little enemies to put in scene.

    I tried out your game! Impressive amount of work gone into it really. There's a lot of attention to detail and it sure does seem like a true passionate piece of work. Keep going at it because you're doing this for you, and you will make it the best you can. The things you learn from this project will surely carry into your next one, you're only getting better with your hard work.

    As far as direct feedback:
    - offer different control schemes, not just customizable controls
    - make the screen size scalable, I can't really see what's going on
    - create easier levels from the beginning, it was too hard right from the start
    - I felt like if I was to jump the second tap should dash me, not push me backwards. It can of gives me an awkward juggling feeling.
    - The animations feel very stiff an unnatural right now (to me animation is more important than anything else)
    - The GUI'S and transitions are lovely
    - Transitions overall are very nice and smooth
    - The engine you've designed and interactions all seem to be very solid!
    - On second glance, you should have options like audio, video, and controls in a section called "options" and not inside of new game. This was easily overlooked
    - We should have more options for game audio. I usually mute game music and prefer to hear the sound effects
    - Fullscreen mode got a bit crazy on the menu screen but game play was fine
    - I couldn't figure out any buttons to go back to the menu screen or any kind of options and that bugged me quite a bit

    Now let me say this. Looking pas the difficulties I had while trying to play this, because the start was too difficult and I am not used to the controls, there is a genuinely fun game in here. I can see how once you master the controls that this can become a blast to speed through, but it's basically impossible to really get the controls down when they all kind of cause you to fall off these cliffs. It's like every time I get used to it another thing is causing me to forget. It's just a lot at once. Design the level not to throw everything at the player at once, but to expose each part of the controls safely to the player. That would be very appreciative.

    Take these all with a grain of salt and as an insight to improve your game!


    where can I find some of this magical cheese btw?
