GameMaker Port in Progress...

Hi all. With the Degica Games Weekend Sale going on, this seemed like a good time to announce that I've begun work on a GameMaker port of Labyrinthine Dreams. While the port is primarily a means for me to learn GameMaker, it will add some nice new features.

GameMaker Port Features

  • MacOS port. GameMaker makes it easy to port games to other platforms. It's possible we'll be looking into porting the game to additional platforms but for now we're sticking to Windows and MacOS (other platforms require additional licensing fees).
  • Increased Resolution. GameMaker doesn't have restrictions on resolution. The original title was designed around 640x480 so not too much will change initially, but I will try to work in the high-rez cutscene pictures.
    [*']Localization. Because I have to build a custom message system for the port, I'm considering having text called in from an .ini file. This means it will be possible now to localize the text into different languages and call in the string based on language setting.
  • Misc improvements. I'll have to rebuild all the game maps in GameMaker which means I'll be making small improvements to certain areas to make them a bit more intuitive (Forest Maze 2 anyone?).
  • Additional Content? It's possible I'll be adding additional mazes that were not possible in the RMVX Ace engine. If I do, these will likely be bonus mazes that are accessible via the start menu and won't be part of the main storyline.

Here is a very early picture of the forest maze entr which is the first map I've implemented into GameMaker:

A lot of things I've taken for granted in RPG Maker are a pain in the butt to do in GM. That said, I love working in the engine and I'm excited to get more systems in place. I'll post another update once I have more noteworthy progress to share.

Let me know if there is anything else you'd like to see in the GM port in the comments. :)

Till next time!

“Labyrinthine Dreams is a quality game. Short but sweet, it won’t take up too much of your day, and it’s nice to see developers try something different. This is definitely one to try for anyone who enjoys a good maze, or prefers a more human-experience sort of story.”

“The puzzle design throughout Labyrinthine Dreams is consistently challenging…and enough variation for it to not become old.”
Indie Statik

“Definitely a game worth getting your hands on…. concise and enjoyable.”

About This Game

Labyrinthine Dreams is a short puzzle game about Beth, a young woman who is standing at Death’s Door. After a traumatic childhood and a tough entry into the world of adulthood, she was just starting to take control of her life. However, she is now up against an insidious enemy who threatens to take everything away from her. During what may be her final hours, Beth wanders through important moments in her life while also staying a few steps ahead of the monster who won’t rest until she is no more.

Mazes in dreams are said to symbolize the dreamer’s feeling of “being trapped.” As Beth tries to find meaning and strength in her life, players must guide her through a variety of mazes, each with its own twist. The most challenging sections are reserved for confrontations with the monster, who must be outmaneuvered and outwitted to proceed.

  • A unique and emotionally powerful story with vivid characters and potent real-world themes.
  • A variety of mazes which challenge players while complementing the narrative.
  • Gorgeous artwork that brings the surreal world of Beth’s unconscious to life.
  • A captivating original score from Joel Steudler.
  • Voice acting that drives home the story’s emotion.
