Ready for #gamelab2012

Are you coming to Gamelab 2012?

We are already among the best 75 Spanish Videogames of 2012! http://www.gamelab.es/2012/premios/premios-del-publico/ficha/?id=27

And moreover, we have been selected as one of the four finalists for the “Best University Project of the Year” Award! check it out:¬†http://www.gamelab.es/2012/premios/finalistas/

Here is our official video of the first level, for those with not enough time to try it themselves:

Will Galahad’s Memories be among the finalists for the “Best Academic Project” award in the forthcoming expo¬†Gamelab Barcelona?¬†It is about to begin in less than two weeks, and we are doing our best just expecting so! We will be there to show our last advances, with a whole new level and much more content! After the end of the expo, and thinking on those that will not be able to attend, the most updated version will be uploaded to this page, to share the game with all of you.

See you soon, this time in Barcelona!


New version and level: Galahad’s clean-up!

Hellow all again,

We are glad to release our last development version of the game, with tons of changes since the last one!

Our objective during the last month was to include a whole new and complete level for players who do not know the core gameplay. With that in mind, we thought it could be a good idea to create the first level of the game, with all its elements (including graphics, camera travellings, texts, audio,…). In this level, the game introduces the main character, Galahad, and how he grew up during his early years. The level divides the flow in three parts, each of them guiding the player through a different color and a different piece of the story.

We encourage you to download the stand-alone version and try it yourself! You won’t be disappointed; many people ask for the second level a moment after finishing this new one!

DOWNLOAD HERE – PC version

Feel free to leave any comment or recommendation. Here are some in-game screenshots, thanks again for visiting and enjoy the level!


Ideame: Debriefing!

Hi everyone!

1 day ago, we began our tale with this video:

Now, we just came back home from http://www.ideame.es/ and we are very happy with all the feedback received from the audience! We were so glad that people could play our game, and share their thoughts and ideas about its mechanics and aesthetics.

The Galahad Team understood how difficult is to attract the attention from people with such an artistic concept¬†with not enough visual feedback in-game, YET! That’s why we encourage you to keep holding an eye on this humble game and try out the last versions of the game that we will be uploading quite often.

Sooner than you think you will be able to download the game version brought to Ideame++ in this blog in the Download section.

And finally, we want to congratulate Stuffed Animalz for their award and the rest of the games for being so original!


Artists’ Blog!

Hello everyone!
You missed us bad, uh?
Here’s a little something for you, our artists blog (it’s in spanish):
https://artgalahadsmemories.wordpress.com/

Evidently we’ll stop posting the art in here.

This weekend we’re assisting to the Ideame++ game contest, organised by Nintendo and our University for all the Complutense University students to compete with their games; and we’ve been really busy.
We’ve been selected and we’ll be the firsts to present our game.
Wish us luck!

We’ll upload the contest game version in a few days.

Later!


Primer Hito: Primera demo

¬°Hola de nuevo!

Hello again!

Last friday we had a project milestone, which means we had to explain and demonstrate our comrades what we’ve achieved so far. ¬°Oh! If we didn’t mention it: we’re using Unity for the development.
You can see yourselves with this video:

Un nuevo comienzo

¬°Hola a todos!

Somos el Galahad Team, compuesto por cinco alumnos del m√°ster de Dise√Īo de Videojuegos de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid y nuestro fiel tutor y profesor. M√°s adelante nos presentaremos m√°s adecuadamente, pero ahora…

Queremos presentaros Galahad’s Memories: una aventura trepidante y colorista en forma de juego de plataformas y puzles en 2D que pretende ser nuestro proyecto de fin de master en la UCM y, si todo marcha bien, hacer un juego como Dios manda y lanzarlo al mundo.

De momento no podemos revelar muchos detalles, ya que se encuentra en las primeras fases de desarrollo, pero s√≠ podemos contaros que el dise√Īo no ha sido moco de pavo, sobre todo teniendo en cuenta los aportes explosivos de nuestro querido y a la vez temido profesor JuanDe. Aunque ya est√° pr√°cticamente cerrado, seguramente sufra algunos cambios durante el desarrollo.

Vamos a hacer el Galahad’s Memories (por lo menos una versi√≥n de prueba convincente) entre febrero y julio de este 2012, as√≠ que el ritmo de trabajo va a ser considerable, con reuniones semanales e hitos mensuales. Este viernes tenemos nuestro primer hito. ¬°Deseadnos suerte!

Por cierto: seguramente los siguientes posts vengan tambi√©n en ingl√©s y m√°s tarde a lo mejor pasamos al ingl√©s directamente, con esto de vendernos m√°s y tal, as√≠ que no nos lo teng√°is en cuenta ūüėõ
Ah, y el blog lo iremos actualizando m√°s o menos cada semana y mejorando seg√ļn le pillemos el truco a esto de WordPress.

Nuestra primera foto de equipo durante la √ļltima reuni√≥n.

Las caras de verdad para otra vez ;)

Y un peque√Īo regalito: el que seguramente ser√° el aspecto de nuestro Protagonista.

Galahad
