Horn of Balance - an indie 2D zelda-like

I'm developing 'Horn of Balance', a 2D zelda-like featuring 12 non-linear dungeons, 2 interconnected worlds and a TON of secrets.

Right now, the project is live on Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hornofbalance/horn-of-balance) and we've almost hit the funding goal with just 24 hours left!

There's also a free demo on Steam (https://store.steampowered.com/app/2738140/Horn_of_Balance/) and Itch.

I'm happy to answer any questions you might have!

HP's Omen Transcend 14 weighs just 3.5 pounds while packing up to an RTX 4070 GPU.

Doods,

The lightest, this makes makes me think, what actually constitutes a gaming laptop, I have an old Intel 530 laptop, I can play Abe’s Oddysee on it, and probably fallout, which makes it a gaming laptop, why do gamers chase the latest hardware when for mere cents they can get a good experience, an experience which was a dream to many.

Fiivemacs,

It’s just marketing terms and they carry zero weight (lol) or reasoning anymore. Best to ignore anything a company says and just look at the hardware and its use case. Companies will continue to lie to consumers and nothing will change that

That article is a bit out of date and wasn’t really true anyway. The people who are creating Pretendo, who wrote the blog post this article is based on, did an update on the situation, specifically calling out the media for their sloppy articles:

With that said, some outlets did a less than stellar job at reporting our last post, not covering some topics fully or accurately.

TL;DR: Many of the issues have already been fixed, even going so far as there are now entirely new servers in place to act as a proxy for Amazons servers to work around some security related incompatibility issues.

freebread,

Thank you for clarifying- still want to get back in for some Splatoon 1 before the end

realcaseyrollins,

Sony’s content removals and unexpected account bans are timely reminders of why you don’t really own digital content.

realcaseyrollins,

There were hundreds of reports of users locked out of their PlayStation accounts and systems without warning on Monday.

@gaming Playing Video games can adjust my mood so much that I might forget my sorrows.

Rentlar,

Good games give me the same feeling as reading a good fictional novel: I get transported into the universe, following the character or whatever action is unfolding.

More generally, games give the player a goal to achieve, whether that’s winning over others, cooperating with others, completing a campaign, collecting a bunch of goodies (or all the goodies), relaxing and enjoying scenery, crafting min-maxed playthroughs, or trying over and over again to beat a level.

Being focused on this goal can help keep your mind off of whatever is troubling you in the present.

EwanCroft,

I'm done, after a lot of swearing at my monitor, I can gawk at myself riding a motorcycle now. 😎

JohnEdwa,

They make consoles for a larger target market/audience than Sony or Microsoft, because that makes them more money than trying to compete directly with them. Wii sold over 100 units and the Switch is currently sitting at around 130 million putting it in third place overall, only behind the Nintendo DS and Playstation 2.

So they most likely won’t, as their formula clearly works (other than the Wii U, it was a flop).

Fredy1422,

Im glad that my pre Nintendo wfc Mk Wii profile got preserved when wiimifi.de became avilable

megapenguinx,

@gaming noticed this feed slowed down once those two servers were defederated. But I could just be imagining things

A portion of the feed was made up from a user posting articles to this feed from one of the other instances. They generated a bit of discussion, but mostly it was lower effort links.

megapenguinx,

@The_Hunted_One that makes sense, I noticed a lot of the same happening on the kbin and Lemmy instances like fedia and feddit

How many people have been playing Weird West? Playing through it right now and I've got to say; this game has so much modding potential. The additional plus of it being a easily modified inmsersive sim adds so much replay value like Doom and gameplay WADs

bear_delune,

I’ve only watched the Mandalore video, looks like a fun time
