This version of the KGX-8000 Fake Console concept and "Emulator" is obsolete.

This was my submission to the OpenGameArt.org Late-Fall 2021 Game Jam.

This is a project to create a fake emulator of a retro game console that never existed, the Kouryaku KGX-8000. View the pseudo-history of the Kouryaku Company. I got the idea when I was perusing surt's art on OGA, and kept thinking/feeling that I was viewing sprites and tiles from an old game console that never was. I used other assets besides surt's, but his work is the real inspiration for the project. Surt is the giant upon whose shoulders I am trying to stand. I also made extensive use of assets from a few other giants, GrafxKid, ansimuz, Jetrel and chipmunk. Please see the credits below for full attributions.


CONTROLS:

Being an imaginary game console, the Kouryaku KGX-8000 had an imaginary gamepad with a d-pad, 3 action buttons and a start button.

Playing with a Gamepad is HIGHLY recommended. D-pad, A X B and Start buttons are used (assuming Xbox-style controller.) It should work with other gamepads, but what buttons will do what depends on the controller. Button IDs are POV Hat and Button 0, Button 1, and Button 2. Whatever your gamepad uses for those Button IDs should theoretically work.

For keyboard controls:

D-pad = Arrow keys

A button = Z key

X button = X key

B button = C key

Start Button = Enter/Return key

For each game you will figure out what buttons do what when you play it.

"Emulator" Controls:

F9 = Reset to Collection title screen.

Escape = Quit the game (only on the downloadable build.)

The game collection was made with the gratis and libre GDevelop 5. This is the first time I have worked with GDevelop, and I am happy I made the switch from Clickteam Fusion. I was honestly amazed at how much I was able to accomplish with GDevelop in such a short time as a total beginner. Seriously, if you wanna make games but traditional coding makes your brain explode, try GDevelop. It rocks.

This collection contains 3 games:

Rynosaur Land (Incomplete, but pretty much working engine-wise as I envisioned)

Helgi: Legend of the Viking (Very incomplete, really only a prototype)

Viroid Planet (Very incomplete, really only a prototype)

Development of these games will continue, but not as a "collection." I will be separating the 3 games into 3 different projects and developing them independently, starting with fleshing out Rynosaur Land into a full game.

All music and sound effects are made by me, graphics assets came from OGA and some other sources. I did some pretty heavy editing to the character sprites I used, and much less editing of the tiles. See credits below.

The Linux and Mac builds are untested by me, as I don't use either OS. They were built using GDevelop's cloud compiling feature. So I can't really support those versions. There are a couple very minor difference between the HTML5 web build playable above, and the downloadable versions. The only differences are in the ability to control fullscreen vs window mode (which has no effect on the web build since the web build allows switching to fullscreen natively), and the ability to quit the game by pressing escape (which interferes with the HTML5 version's use of escape to exit fullscreen mode.) So I just changed the Intro screen on the web build to require a click (to force browser focus to the web app) instead of the Intro screen allowing you to choose between fullscreen and window mode.

I plan to release the GDevelop source "code" under MIT License for each of these games as I transition to separating them into three different projects. I also plan to add any of the assets I have significantly edited as derivatives on OGA, I just have to sort out licensing for the derivatives. I didn't use any Share-Alike assets, expressly because I wanted to be able to deal with sharing derivatives on my own time and not be forced to do so when I released the game. I will also be releasing the music I made for the project as CC0 on OGA.

I had a helluva lot of fun working on this project. Many thanks to OGA community, and to with the love studios for hosting the jam. It lit a fire under my ass and got me to actually make something instead of just piddly-farting around.
