Cool! Looks well done. I can't tell what makes the game unique, but it does look well put together. Are you planning to sell this game? If so, why might people buy this game instead of something like RollerCoaster Tycoon? What about an English version?

Glückwunsch laugh der Trailer sieht sehr viel versprechend aus. Finde es vor allem ziemlich genial das man die Wege und Pools bauen kann wie man will (also von der Form her). Die Grafik sieht auch super aus. Wie lange hast du für das Spiel gebraucht?

Glückwunsch zum abgeschlossenem Projekt.

Das Gewusel im Video gefällt mir gut, als Käufer würde ich erst mal sehen was die KI mit den Besuchern so treibt.......da stopft sich einer mit Pommes und Eis voll und kotzt dann ins Wasser. Alle verlassen fluchtartig den Pool, dabei schubst jemand den Typ der gerade die Wiese mäht.....Massenpanik, Gemetzel, Splatterorgie grin

Möge dein Game viele Fans finden und die Verkaufszahlen durch die Decke brechen .

Hi, Unique makes the game that the player have to go deeper into the needs of the Bathers. And we have the rating of the park (starrating), wich have many effects of the gameplay. And by the way... you are much more free in designing the park. wink

Danke Oliver laugh Ich habe insgesamt (mit Konzept) 18 Monate an dem Spiel gearbeitet. Ich hatte erst versehentlich oben 9 Monate geschrieben, aber das wäre bisschen wenig ^^ Man darf aber auch nicht vergessen, dass es in den Monaten meine Hauptarbeit war und keine Nebensache wink

Danke gri! Aber vergiss nicht, dass ich es bis auf die Charaktere alleine entwickelt habe wink
Ich hätte diesen Detailgrad aber gerne umgesetzt.

great stuff!
what gri really wants is a zombie version grin
it could be a hard job to implement the AI, do you use influence maps or potential fields to attract/toss guests together with some kind of pathfinder?
and why did you finally apply decal shadows (in the video there are simple dots), when in case of many moving entities shadowmapping can become faster (and much nicer)?

- I would say that its a mix of both wink

- Shadowmapping broke the framerate. There are moving a lot of Figures in the Park and even some would reduce the framerate . I use entities for the dots and not decal shadows. They would be also too slow.
