Circuit Dude [2.1] - Awesome Puzzle Game With 50 Levels!


(Holmes) #122

Circuit Dude’s Steam page is up and is ready for you to add to your wishlists! Unfortunately, some Steamworks glitch forced me to move my release date back 2 weeks to August 3rd. After the release, I think I’m going to do an update on the Arduboy version. If you’re interested in the PC version, go ahead and check it out at this link:

Consider it done.

Nice sprites btw, the grey buttons on the right hand pane remind me a bit of “Please, Don’t Touch Anything”.
Did you make the sprites yourself or did you get someone else in to help?


(I’m a little concerned that “Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator” was in the “More like this” section. I think Valve’s similarity algorithm needs tuning.)


(Holmes) #124

I did all the UI elements and some other minor tweaks and stuff, but Shout did the character artwork and tile pixel art based on some of my designs.

O_O I will need to give them more metadata to work with. I think they also use game purchase history of people who bought it, but because it’s not been released just yet, it doesn’t have much data to go off of.


(Pharap) #125

Huh, good to know, they’re nicely done.
Let me know if you ever decide you want a second sprite artist though.

Yeah. Have a skim of what tags other puzzle games use and see if you can find some you aren’t using yet.

Weird, I don’t have any dating sims in my libary, especially not male dating…
Oh wait a minute, there is one…
Precisely one…
I can see how Steam might be misinterpreting this.
“Coo, coo!” (I regeret nothing!).
And so the world was engulfed in pudding.
10/10 would meme again.

Need the Android version


(Holmes) #127

Woot! PC version is available for download!! :heart: :heart:

@curly, I’ll be sure to notify you when the Android version is out. :3

Is there any way to save your process on the computer and switch to another game ?


(Holmes) #129

The Arduboy saves your progress for several games, including Circuit Dude, in EEPROM memory, which does not get erased when you put a new game on the system! :smiley:

Just curious, what level are you on? :slight_smile:


(Pharap) #130

Unless another game overwrites it of course :P.
I’m guessing nothing’s using the same area as Circuit Dude yet though, thankfully.

Come to think of it, wouldn’t you have a way to poll your repo to find out which games use which EEPROM areas?
If that’s not already a feature it would be a really handy thing to have.


(Scott) #131

It’s been talked about. It’s one of the reasons that the EEPROM storage use fields were added to the .arduboy file specification. I’m pretty sure nobody’s done it yet, though.


(Pharap) #132

That’s what I meant. @crait’s online repo accepts .arduboy files so it would have the EEPROM field, he’s be able to do a poll of/keep track of which games use what EEPROM blocks and publish it somewhere, as would @eried and anyone else who is maintaining a repo that accepts .arduboy files.

That’s unfortunate.


(Charlie) #133

Awesome kinda new at this stuff and im at level 26 :smiley:


(Holmes) #134

<3 <3 <3 Awesome~~ That’s actually pretty far. Keep it up!


(Charlie) #135

Yeah I will it’s my favorite game on the ArduBoy and im about to buy it on steam as well! :smile:


(Holmes) #136

Thank you for the support!


(Phil Graham) #137

I just put on my Arduboy today.


#138

Loved this! Those puzzles were challenging and satisfying. And yes, I did finish it :slight_smile: Did you design all the puzzles yourself?


(Holmes) #139

Woot! Did you like the secret ending?! :smiley:

As for the levels, I did design them all myself except for 1 of them, which was inspired from another game. (Can’t remember which # it was!)

If you liked it, be sure to pick up the version on Steam with 50+ new puzzles! All existing puzzles are also updated and remastered to be a bit different. :slight_smile:


#140

Now I really need to play it to the end for sure :slight_smile:


#141

Great ending. That’s what kept me going!

But I loved puzzle 49 most! That was my favorite. I was proud of myself for beating all these puzzles. Mad respect for the one who designed them!
