thank you, the idea is to make a commercial game and publish it via bigfish
(already published via them so) but now i'm going after the big success :)

however i dind't do the art :) because that's a different job, also the music and sounds
you can't do it all, hire somebody who is better in drawing than yourself :)

my last game was in awt swing.. , then i've prototyped this one in javafx..
so you don't know how happy i was having slick found :)

bottomline don't forget having fun with slick !

It looks very professional. I like it! I'm really glad something of this caliber is being made in Slick. Is there some secret place you meet these people who can do art and sfx for you?

thank you, that's a little bit the idea of this post,
to "harvest" some first impressions of poeple because i can't get a "first impression" anymore
and sometimes that's 'blinding" me (if it's too indie or not..)

also the idea is to prove more or less to myself and to slick that it's possible to create
good commercial games in all respect to the api because it is a very good and simple game api!

for finding some good desingers you can go to different designer sites
like http://www.conceptart.org or deviantart.com if you like a style contact the designer directly
and make a good fixed price deal

i can recommend my designer :) what sells is design, nobody will say, wow great code !
find a designer that has a very good casual game style, casual is an art, you have it or you don't
but (imho) you can't ask a designer to draw a casual style, it is a definition of his style.. you see?

Very good tips there. I'll keep that in mind if I ever get around to making a profitable game.

this is the best looking thing I've seen come out of Slick, congrats

i wouldn't say it looks too indie, in fact i think you nailed ipad-style sprite look, and from what i can make of that 1st screenshot the (particle) effects look impressive

of course, the gameplay could be here nor there, and i can't say i've heard of bigfish as a distributor, have you considered Slick: Android Edition? Anyway, good luck

Thank you for that nice comments!

Indeed i went a little bit over the top with the particle emmitters, but that's what casual games need
it's maybe difficult to see but the map is also animated and in-game there are a lot of more effects

i was very happy that this api also provides tools to make it more easy to configure them
i also use them for showing animated messages on the screen, like "rampage", that's a one particle system
however i've tweaked it a little bit because by default there is a certain calculated ratio on the display

true, this is also the idea to port it to android one day, but first i'll try to release this one :)

cheers

Hey there!
Very impressive.
I think it would be nice to have a video on youTube that you post here, in that way people will be able to enjoy animations!

Great job!

That is incredible. Commercial quality game right there. Expect to cause a lot of attention for yourself and the Slick library. I can't wait to play it!

Just a little nitpick... It should be "Hell's Deep" (note the apostrophe).

All around great looking game! And nice lightning effect. :P

:) yeah the lightning effect, i couldn't have done it without you !

tx for the nitpick :)

another tip, about translations, bigfish normally translates it themselves to 5 languages you can choose
so don't spend too much time finding people who can translate your game (because i did before :{ )

as for the design, i need to give some credits here, as i said i found him deviantart
you search a little bit, and if you like a concept of someone contact them, and normally you get a good response back
if they are available and you are both convinced to close a deal you're up and running

it is very motivating to get new goodies each day to implement in your game
example, the one for H&H i found here: http://amoraleite.deviantart.com/

if you want i can also give you his contact information, he also did some concept art for wii games !
that's why he is used to create casual stuff!
site: http://www.amoraleite.com, blog http://amoraleite.wordpress.com
and recently he was interviewed in a photoshop magazine ! :)
