    Yup. That’s right. We are working on a new game

    We present for your consideration in the times to come: RNG Racer!

    Backdrop:
    RNG Racer was the result of an in-house game jam for the winter while classes were out. The goal was to prototype game ideas that has been kicked around between us that could developed into a full projects. So basically, this is the first of many being worked into full games.

     

    What’s it about:

    RNG Racer is a multiplayer racing game where you compete with friends in a series of game modes with the aid to randomly generated power ups.

     

    Where can I stay posted:

    Well for starters, you can follow us on Facebook and Twitter. These will be the primary places where we will regulatory post about the game. However, we will be keeping a Developer Log on  Game Jolt and posting updates on the progress made daily.

    Basic Guide: Soulcade Interactive Narration Engine

    Introduction

    So unless you stumbled upon this post somehow without being aware at all of the purpose of the title, then it should be established that we released our first Game Maker Studio Asset. This asset allows the user to add on screen narration as well as vocal narrations via recordings. I want to be clear and say now that this does not provide text to speech functionality. 

    What we will cover

    Now moving forward, this guide is going to be one to address the basic usage of this asset. We will specifically be going over the usage of each of the scripts bundled inside the asset. There will be another guide on troubleshooting this asset and more when feedback is collected and reviewed.

     

    Included scripts
    narration_initnarration_addnarration_fade_innarration_fade_outnarration_clear

    This script initializes the narration system and creates ds_queues that are assigned to the variables narration_script,narration_timer, and narration_sound. This only needs to be called once inside the create event of obj_narrator

    This script allows you to add “lines” to the narrator’s script for displaying to the player. This script contains 3 arguments: The first for the text (written as a string), the second being the amount of seconds you want this specific line displayed (EX: If you want the line to be displayed for 5 seconds then simply write 5), and third is the optional sound file.

     

    Note: If a sound file is supplied in the third argument then the second argument will be overridden for the length of the sound file and if no sound file it to be used then write noone in its place.

    Simply smoothly fades in the overlay for the narration text

    Simply smoothly fades out the overlay for the narration text

    Deletes all remaining narrations and stops current ones executing.
    Can be used for abruptly switching to new dialogue by using this function and narration_add() in quick succession as well as in the game’s end event

    Implementation into a preexisting game.
    Implementing this asset into a preexisting Game Maker Project is as simple as adding obj_narrator to the room needed and calling the narration_add function to add lines to the narrator’s “script”. If you want a line to be read instantly call the narration_clear script before the specific narration_add call instance you want read. Changing the font (Assuming you don’t share Soulcade’s obsession with Bebas) is as simple as going into the create event of the obj_narrator object and assigning a different font to the variable font

    Introductions: Nabil Sekirime

    Hello, my name is Nabil Sekirime, I am currently one half of Soulcade Interactive. I do a bit of everything when it comes to this company but in terms of the role I play, I’d say that I’m the design and business end of the company. I’ve been making games as long as I can remember (So since 8) and that interest never died (or I never grew up), so I intend to make a career out of it. I have released a game before with a previous start-up but that ended because of create differences. I also was in a graphic design program for 4 years so I have just a wee bit of experience when it comes to this sort of thing. When I am not dying in school or working my part-time job I will most likely be rapid prototyping whatever pops into my head and seeing what may actually become something.
