During the Svilupparty and the GameOver events we had the occasion of watching real people playing the game prototype , this manner we got a lot of suggestions from them and from other developers too.
We will take seriously in count those suggestions and we will change some aspect of the game itself. Game-play will be simplified and much well defined, we will set a clear objective in order to finish each level, the name of the game may be changed and so on, stay tuned.
The game suffered of a long stop period due to a series of project we had to deliver to our clients (hey they pay us for that), now we got again some time to dedicate to our creature, and, speaking about creatures, here the last creature just coming from the explosive mind of Clelio: the Skorpio! It seems to be a very aggressive enemy, it will be a tough cookie for our little yellow car.
That thing looks really cool
I’ve got a suggestion you can put in the game a rat rod with an angry face the headlights will be the eyes and there will be sharp fangs on the grille and it will be called the evil rodder
Hi Louis. I believe it’s a nice idea. EvilRat…. o my god.. another challenge 😀 tomorrow I will talk about this idea with the team. But, before, we have to fix a little problem about the game, so, it will take a little bit of time to bw done. Thanks!
of course we can have tomorrow talk i visit this website daily
who’s evil rat?
The contracted form of Devil+Rat … EvilRat
maybe you can get ideas of other cars in other video games like carmageddon infact i’m playing that right now here are some pics of cars from the game to give you some ideas: http://www.gamer.ru/system/attached_images/images/000/477/298/normal/resize_of_16-roadhog.png
now this one looks like something out of the game: http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130127134216/carmageddon/images/thumb/7/71/CarmaR-pitbull-concept.jpg/640px-CarmaR-pitbull-concept.jpg
Nice catch Luis, last link you posted is kind of car that could fit great into the game, it only needs some organic details to be added, but, when you wrote rat rods in Clelio’s mind popped out a car with a rat’s muzzle on the front and a long thin tail on the rear, I know for sure :-D, so, I predict several long working sessions for Clelio.
Lamberto, you have the “super power” of read in other’s minds… haha. But… is true, I have thought about this.
is the Skorpio a good car?
no it isn’t but… in certain situation it could be 😉
I want to know the story of the undead rods like a mad scientist was creating creatures into vehicles and hell broke loose and they went on a killer rampage and it’s up to you to stop them and i hope this game will have cutscenes how cool does that idea sound?
there will be a storyline underlying the game. An infection coming from outer space zombifies the machines of the world, an eccentric scientist builds a weapon, starting from a city car, for cleaning up infected areas and for scrapping mutated vehicles. There wil be an intro for sure and, hopefully, cut scenes between levels if we have enough budget and time.
What part are working on right now? Is there any other cars you can buy besides the yellow fiat 500?
Right now we are working on new freak cars, on new cityscape models and we have to solve an insidious bug on the cars that, because it happen totally random, it’s very hard to fix.
What came first alias runner, on the run or ffx runner? what does ffx mean/stand for?
Alias runner was the name of the game while it was under development, red car and evening sky, then it become ffx runner for the final release, yellow car and daylight sky. Are you curious about the meaning of ffx? Well, that time the logo of our company was the written words of our name with the two green F and the red X ( oFFicine piXel ) so, those characters was flashing out from the logo in some way. This was the genesis of it. After a while, because the game became quite popular, miniclip bought from us a rebranded version of the game that become on the run.
i’m not being a snitch or anything but some flash gaming websites have alias runner with the evening sky and the red car and it is in spanish for some reason
We are aware of that, someone stolen the game during final stage of development and spreaded it on the web, we offered the new version of the game to those websites was hosting it, but some of them, despite the fact we offered it for free and with many bugfixes, preferred keep up the stolen version. It’s not spanish but italian, we are an italian company.
why is there a eyeball in alias runner? instead of the ffx logo?
and a another gaming company made a copy of blacktop runner and it was called property racer instead of a red fiat 500 it’s a blue vw golf
The eyeball was the logo of the company comissioned the game, unfortunately they suddently shut down despite the fact they was a big telecom company, without paying for the game, so, we decided of finish the game on our own and release it for free.
The property race was developed as advergame by us for a real estate company based in London. Louis, you are a real expert about our games 😀
woah thanks for saying that i knew officine pixel since 2007
i know i keep on asking you questions but what is the story of ffx runner 1? miniclip’s on the run has one but what is ffx runner’s story?
also where did you find the music on the hell level because i want to find it’s really good also will you do more gameplays on the prototype?
and what does OP 1138 mean on the fiat 500’s number plate?
Also I found a sequel to alias runner alias runner 2 apocalypse have you heard of that? If you can find the game and play it for yourselfs. Also why can’t you sue the people for stealing alias runner with the evening sky and the red car?
the song was downloaded from here http://opengameart.org/content/metal-song-energetic
more gamepalys will come and when the game will be stable enough a playable demo will be available
the OP on the plate is fo Officine Pixel while 1138 is a homage to the first George Lucas movie: THX 1138 (I had to ask to Davide who modeled the car)
Alias Runner 2 Apocalypse was made by fog.com, at the beginning they asked us to make such game, but, just because they was one of the website haven’t removed the stolen version of the game, we refused of working with them. After that, they probably arranged with someone else.
Sue people in another country, or worst, in another continent is an extremely expensive activity without guarantee of any return back, we are not Sony or Disney 😉
oh ok sorry
what’s the other song used in the hell level
what i mean the song used in the prototype gameplay on this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPwQ2Z3duTM
used on the lynsbury level
it’s a royalty free music we downloaded from here http://freemusicarchive.org/genre/Metal/ if I remember correctly
do you remember what page it was on?
no, sorry. All I know is its file name: 3HR.MT_.3.mp3
maybe clelio knows
I’m sorry, I do not remember 🙁
i can’t find the song :/
do you know anything that reads song files then it tells the song?
Can you go in the game files or something and find that song? That’s what people do on other games like FNAF
how big is the skorpio? Is it the size of the fiat 500? Or size of the grincar?
Skorpio will be bigger than the player’s car but not that big as the grincar.
Louis, are you english native speaking, if so, you could give us your opinion on some new titles candidates we have selected.
i”m fully english and what other titles are there? or i make them up?
I will write you by email. By the way, i wrote you an email about the music, have you received it?
yes i have received the song it’s really good! also i’ve got a suggestion you should make a patreon account it’s a website where people donate you money
it sounds interesting, i don’t know how it works, can you explain me? E-mail please.
Patreon is a website where you can posy like art, music and portfolio you also can make a campaign and people can support you and donate you money
This is kind of a weird idea are you able to make merchandise to promote your games? Like for example model cars from ffx runner, blacktop runner and undead rods? Also make shirts of the officine pixel logo on it. I know this is a weird idea but is it possible you to do it?
For now we have a black T-Shirt
I really seem to like your officine pixel games….
Can you tell me some other games that you worked for? as I like to try them… Other than games in your website…
And also as you’re an Italian company, why not work together with SBS? (Silent bay Studios)… Check their site… They also work for other companies like you… their games are good too….
I would be really happy to know your publishing games other than your site so I can play them too. I’m really a FFX and SBS lover!!!
Hi Deshan, thank you for your appreciation. In past we mostly worked for edutainment products that was sold on CD-ROM or DVD mainly for italian market, some titles was translated to german romen chinese and spanish. Currently, games we make for our clients are mainly for advergame and promotion. We was not aware of SBS, thank you for suggestion.
is the ffx runner undead rods up for sale?
Are the shirts up for sale I meant
The shirts was a test, we used them during the Game Over festival in Milan, not yet on sale.
My friend Tom really wants to play the game and he wants a shirt really badly justy like me also he is going to start replying to you he’s hyped!! 🙂
looks so incredible, I want to play! Very talented work, it seems to me that this is something cool!
