About

                             ~~~~(¡PRUEBEN EL  DEMO! ) ~~~~

                      ~~~~(PLEASE, GIVE THE DEMO A TRY!) ~~~~

Cuando los pingüinos salen de la Antártica en busca de alimento, ellos zarpan abordo del S.S. Ushuaia. Un miembro de la tripulación del barco, es un pequeño pingüino azul llamado "Pichi", quien es el pingüino más adorable de todo el polo sur.

Un día, los pingüinos hacían sus tareas dentro del barco cuando derrepente.... ¡BOOM! El barco se encuentra bajo ataque. El malvado capitán del polo norte, Nanuk el oso, ha tomado el barco a la fuerza, secuestro a la tripulación y se robó los peces... ¡Pobres pingüinos!

Después del ataque, el único pingüino que pudo escapar fue Pichi, el pequeño pingüino.

Pichi, tu eres el único con el coraje suficiente para salvarlos a todos

When penguins leave Antartica in search for fish out in the sea, they sail aboard the S.S. Ushuaia. Aboard the ship, lives a blue penguin called “Pichi”, who is the most adorable penguin in the south pole. One day, the penguins were fishing in the Atlantic Ocean when suddenly… !BOOM! S.S. Ushuaia is under attack! Nanuk the Bear, the pirate from the north pole has taken the ship, kidnapped the crew, and stole their fish… Poor penguins! After the attack, the only penguin that was able to escape, was Pichi, the little blue penguin.  

Pichi, you are the only one with the courage to save them all!!

 Pocket Penguin es un juego de plataformas que intenta emular el sentimiento que tenían los videojuegos de antes, específicamente el sentimiento que tenían los juegos de Gameboy. Este tipo de juegos era diferente al NES pues los gráficos se limitaban a 4 colores en pantalla, y la música solo contenía 4 canales.

Este juego va a ser lanzado en PC (Windows)

A pesar de ser un juego totalmente original, mis fuentes de inspiración para desarrollarlo son la serie de Bomberman y la serie de Kirby.  Pueden notarlo cuando prueben el juego.

Pocket Penguin is a platform videogame that tries to emulate the feeling of the old school games, mainly the Gameboy style. This kind of aesthetic is different from the NES style, because the graphics are limited to 4 colors and the music is reduced to 4 channels. 

This game is going to be released in PC (Windows) .

Although this is an original game my main inspiration to develop it was the Kirby series and Bomberman series. You will see when you play the demo!

 Para simular el estilo de juego, se usa una frase que sirve de guía para entender las mecánicas del juego. "Usa bombas para atacar. Usa bombas para saltar"

Esto significa que la manera de jugar esta basada en dos botones principales.

To simulate the style, this game uses a simple phrase to guide the mechanics of the game. “Use bombs to attack. Use bombs to jump” 

This means that the core gameplay is based in two buttons, each one represents one action

 - A pesar de que existen enemigos comunes, tendrás que calcular el tiempo para colocar las bombas y poder derrotarlos.

- Pixel Art original

- Música original sacada directamente del Gameboy

- Dos modos para mover a Pichi:

1.  Tierra (como en cualquier juego de plataformas) 

2. Agua (¿Han visto como nadan los pingüinos? Su forma de moverse ahora es libre, como en un juego de naves)

- Distintos niveles, los cuáles puedes explorar cuando quieras para descubrir sus secretos, resolviendo acertijos, un montón de acertijos. Como se mencionó anteriormente, mi fuente de inspiración es Kirby por lo que el orden de los mundos se coloca de la siguiente forma:

                                        P raderas Alegres   

                                        O caso en el Desierto     

                                        L itoral Lavanda  

                                        A cantilado Forestal

                                        R iesgo Ártico

- Altough there are common enemies, you will have to time your attacks in order to defeat them.

- Original pixel art  

- Original music that comes from the Gameboy sound chip!

- Two modes of moving Pichi: 

1. Ground (as a standard platform game)

2. Water (Have you ever seen how the penguins swim? The core mechanics change to a free moving player like a shooting game) 

- A lot of levels, which you can explore whenever you want to discover all of their secrets solving puzzles, a lot of puzzles. As spoken previously, this game is inspired by Kirby, this means that the world is arranged in this order:

                                      eaceful Plains  

                                      ld Desert  

                                      avender Ocean  

                                      utumn Forest  

                                      isky Ice

¿A DÓNDE IRÁ EL DINERO?

La Asociación de Pingüinos del Polo Sur (PSSP por sus siglas en inglés) me escribió una carta en la que explica como se va a distribuir el dinero:

- Como director, animador y programador, parte del dinero lo usaré para sobrevivir en el frío invierno de la Antártida.

- Parte del dinero será usado para asegurar de que todos los artistas involucrados en el desarrollo sean compensados.

- Impuestos, costos de producción y cuotas de procesamiento.

- Todo lo que sobre será usado para extender el mundo de los pingüinos, ya sea en forma de comic, animación u otro juego.

190,000$MX - Libro con el arte concepto.

 WHERE WILL THE MONEY GO?

The Penguin Society of the South Pole (PSSP) wrote me a letter, which explains how I will distribute the money:

 - As the director, programmer and animator I will use part of the money to survive the cold winter in Antartica.

-Part of the money is going  to be used to ensure all artists contributing to the game will be compensated.

- Taxes, production costs, and processing fees.

- Any left overs after the game's development will be use to produce an original product extendig the lore of the game. This could be another game, an animation or a comic.

Risks and challenges

La mayoría de las cuestiones técnicas las he resuelto durante el desarrollo del producto demo.

El único riesgo latente es que no pueda terminar a tiempo el juego, sin embargo todos los códigos que crean el juego ya están en su lugar.

////////////////////////////////

Most of the technical challenges I was worried about have been resolved during my work on the demo.

The only risk is that I will not finish the game on time. However, the majority of the systems are already in place, and I have all of the major points of the game planned out, so please, look foward for the game!
