Bored... and Moved to New Project: Kelin's Delivery

I know I should finish Kelin Kelilin, but it will take longer than I though... Especially after releasing the third demo, Kelin Kelilin still lack of audience _(:3_)_. So, I decided to make a new side project: Kelin's Delivery

Since this game is being made using Pico-8, the game is guaranteed to be small since the harst limitation of the game tool. Additionally, I need to be careful when trying to implement features because of the code number limitation, which is good since it makes me to not adding non-core features. Also, I didn't have experience in programming using Lua language. Interestingly, I learned the basic quickly after a bit of tutorial and trying to make Kelin's Delivery.

This game will be released on Pico-8 platform and also HTML5 site. The game itself will be free so people can know Kelin better. 

The game will be about Kelin's puzzle adventure game when delivering package to her client. The game will contain interactive puzzle element. The reason I chose puzzle adventure game is because I like puzzle adventure genre games. I even made (with other people) several puzzle adventure games in the past as "Me, Wake Up!" series.

In this game, when Kelin is on her way to deliver the package to her client. However, there is raining on her way. She quickly finds some place to cover herself from the rain. Suddenly she found an abandoned house. While waiting inside the house, she feels cold and hungry. Now, the main challenge is to find something to make her warm and to feed her hunger.

Progress done so far are:

  • Some of map system
  • Movement
  • Some of inventory system
  • Some GUIs
  • Inventory check

After making some progress, I had some thought to change the graphic style of Kelin Kelilin. The art result when using Pico-8 color was so beatiful.

Finally, expect more Kelin's Delivery game news in the future. Meanwhile, enjoy the animated screenshot progress ;).

Kelin Kelilin - Progress: v0.3 Demo Released

Good news, Kelin Lovers!

It is the beginning of February 2017. Today a new demo of Kelin Kelilin v0.3 has finally released in

A lot of changes have been implemented in this update, more than v0.2. The important ones are:
  • Keyboard for navigation
  • Rating system change
  • Added star pickup for rating system
  • Report after finishing a level
  • Separated Time Bonus and Gold-time Bonus
Some planned features which were to be implemented in the future were post-poned, like the save/load system. Still designing the concept what will the save/load file structure and also whether to implement cryptology to prevent save file manipulation to cheat the game.

I am currently planning to put pre-order or early access for the game since the game will take months to be fully completed. All the levels themselves are already completed. However, there are still missing side features like Scenes, Achievements, Outfits.

Well, enjoy the v0.3 demo and expect more Kelin Kelilin news in the future!
