Cipher Pusher: Action/Puzzle/Seafood : Trailer & Greenlight!

Hello dear Allegro members,

As some of you already know, in my spare time, I'm working a on an Action/Puzzle game called Cipher Pusher.
It's about blocks, vortexes & seafood.

{"name":"vid_340_255_cipherpusher-white-titlescreen.gif","src":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/4\/2\/428bbbe5bfdc883e5df578b99bf4a492.gif","w":340,"h":250,"tn":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/4\/2\/428bbbe5bfdc883e5df578b99bf4a492"}vid_340_255_cipherpusher-white-titlescreen.gif

Cipher Pusher

Cipher Pusher is a 2D top down Action/Puzzle game where you will have to push, carry, rotate, and connect some blocks!
But wait you can also remote-push, multi-push several blocks at a time, perform chain reactions… to achieve even greater combos!
You play as an astronaut without any weapon… and though you will have to dodge thousands of missiles, encounter hostile octopus-like lifeforms,
experiment strange mechanisms to solve puzzles…

If you're interested, watch the trailer:

Also, here are some GIFs :

I'm coding this game in C++. And I'm also coding its engine, based on Allegro 5.

Steam Greenlight & spread the word

I have great pleasure in launching its Steam Greenlight !
If you liked the trailer, or my previous work, please go to Steam website and vote YES here !
As you probably know, this is important because it will allow the game to get published.

Co-op? You magnificent devil!

Co-op is not required to solve puzzles ;)

Co-op was really efficient in the early feedback days to find news bugs/crashs during events! ;)

anto80, you particle beast! ;)

Do you create new particles real-time or are they pre-allocated in memory?

I take care of the memory! No worries :D

That's a fixed length list of pointers.
Any pointer to Particle is newed then destroyed.

If there's no room in the fixed length list, I force destroy on the eldest pointer.

Looks awesome, anto80! Voted yes and hope it gets published. That looks amazing. I'm also really glad that a polished game finally noted Allegro at its core. You did a really good job of that in the gif! I hope that's in the title screen or something.

And suddenly, last night at 1 AM in the morning...
Cipher Pusher got Greenlit!

Well, I'm so happy because it was rather fast: it took less than 10 days! :o

Thanks to all people who played/voted/commented/spread !
You are awesome.

It's still a bit hard to read. Can you add more colors please?

Thanks for your interest.

Unfortunately I still have lots of stuff to do.
Obviously level design, some new features, find solution related to IRL feedbacks.
That includes also lots of stuff non-related to the code.

Sorry but I'll have to ask you to be patient.
