I decided to revisit the platformer genre not too long ago, and I came up with a concept (about a few days after beating portal, go figure?) for one. The whole style of gameplay is centered around portals. No, this isn't a portal clone, it just has portals. Since my pixel art capabilities are horrible, I'm still using the Sidescroller base art, with my own addition of portals (hopefully all temporary, but we'll see):
(that box is in a never-ending loop downwards)
In regards to Get Something Done, I'd like something that I can play with multiple people.
I'm also hoping this will be better done than Doomed Dreams, because for some reason, now it has horrible lag. It really just needs to be updated, but.. I'm not sure when I'll get to that. I'm horrible at maintaining projects.
If anyone is curious about the planned features or anything, I have a google doc started. It's not very organized or anything, since it's just more of a reference right now. Also, I have a google code page for it, so I can work across all of my computers.
Aaaand I almost forgot that I have a small demo of it prepared. This is just showing the portal mechanics, and a few other things possibly, but it's a wee bit outdated (about a week of work judging by the timestamp on the file), so I'll have to update that sometime. For now, here is the current demo.
Oh, you might recognize the name. It's intended to be the sequel to Doomed Dreams, although no story for Warped Dreams has been decided on yet.
