Title: Sokobin [Casual Puzzle]
Post by: nunesbarbosa on October 23, 2013, 05:57:00 AM
Hello everyone. I'm pleased to announce my first publishable work and divulge my company Niobium Studios.
http://niobiumstudios.com (http://niobiumstudios.com)
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/niobiumstudios (https://www.facebook.com/niobiumstudios)

There is a poll at the site. I'd be extremely grateful if you guys could give your opinion.

What is Sokobin?
Sokobin is a Sokoban clone. I couldn't say it's a remake because I'm not using the same levels the original Sokoban used at 1981. This game clone was picked on purpose to test my skills as a game designer and developer.
The main objective of the game is to push crates to the goals, but things could get tricky if some of the crates gets stuck at a corner, so the player needs to think before make a move.

Platforms
I intend to release first at Android platform, then Web, PC and maybe IOS if I buy a Mac some day.

Assets
I'm an asset junkie.. I only managed to work this game in 2 months with little Unity3D experience because I have serious help from some assets frameworks like Playmaker and NGUI. I'm also using some textures and sprites from the Asset Store.

Release Date
I intend to release the demo version on Android at 01/11/2013. It's the time I need to do a good polish and some final artwork.

Features
The final version will consist of 4 different stages (jungle, industrial, ice and lava) where each stage will have it's own tile theme and character model.
Star ranking system consisting of minimum moves to beat the level.
Progressive and logic challenging levels

I'm posting below some of the current game art so far. Thanks everyone for the support!

I have to agree with you Jean. My modeler is still working on the character and I'm making some polishing on the gameplay.

I'll publish a teaser video as soon as I have an alpha version!
