Title: Tcheco - My first video game (now on Steam!) =D
Post by: macbee on June 26, 2015, 06:51:00 pm
I'm very happy to announce that my first game is finally available on Steam.
It's an faux-NES-retro title about finding keys and avoiding enemies. Game is very simple but I did my best to make it fun.

At least in Brazil it's one of the cheapest games available on Steam.
The game even had a review on IGN Brazil (and it got an "8"!!) =)
Hope you like it! =D

Shit man looks interesting! I am going to wishlist this till I get next paycheck! Lets see if it plays as cool as it looks.
also don't expect a review because I have so many games on my plate I won't be getting to it for months probably! :P

got it because it looks cool and has good reviews, but I'll be unable to check it out for a few weeks because I'm on a linux machine now.
so, if it's not too much to ask, would you kindly consider making your next game cross-platform? I wouldn't mind you converting this one to linux, but I don't think you're gonna do it anyway so I'm not gonna even ask. :) as an incentive, consider that multi-platform approach will possibly pay off if and when SteamOS finally gets, well, some steam up.

Bought 5 copies and sent one to a reviewer I have on my friends list because I am bored and I like your earlier work in hacking.

Edit: I've tried it and I have to say its pretty good! For 99 cents its more than I was expecting and is quite fun and charming. Don't go into it expecting shovel knight but a fun little romp that's a good kind of challenge.

Thank you very much!! =D
I want to convert the game to other systems - but I have no idea of when it's gonna happen.

I have a suggestion, basically when I die I really wish I had a way to know how much more I had to do before I finished the game. For example a percentile or a level count.

I was considering to put a map before - but I gave up because I wanted to make the player feel lost in the castle.
There are 65 stages/screens in this game. If you want to practice more there is a 30-life cheat: http://www.gamefaqs.com/pc/170160-tcheco-in-the-castle-of-lucio/cheats

I like the lost and rather confused feeling the game gives! I just feel like I don't get enough feedback at death I dunno.

Looks like I'm finally going to have to get myself a steam account.

Thank you! I can't program so I made it using Scirra Construct Classic (a free, easy to use game maker - I highly recommend it!).

Hey, you made a game man! Cools...

I've always wanted to but I've never really had the discipline to get started on the story. :)

Way to go!
