View Full Version : [ ECLIPSE - Rayman Fangame ]

06-14-2009, 12:58 PM


Have you looked around you recently? This world is not the world you were born in. These creatures, lurking in the darkness, have grown. They have prepared this day for a long time… the day of the eclipse. Today, they will execute Mr. Dark’s evil will. Covered by his cloak of darkness, the world will become his slave. Happiness and light will lose their meaning.
It is too late for us now. Only they who stand against His will, still have a chance to rise… and shine.


Teaming up with the Robo-Pirates, Mr. Dark has become more powerful than ever. He has not yet lost his dream of robbing the world of its heart. Electrix, an electoon and one of his most loyal servants, turns from the dark side, and together with his friends, he travels through 6 worlds to defeat Mr. Dark and his allies once and for all.

Cool idea. Must be mega hard since you've got two enemies teamed up.

06-14-2009, 02:07 PM
WOW! This looks absolutely astounding! And to think you've been doing this all by yourself too! From what this demo shows us, it looks extremely thorough and well done. c:
Did you make the music yourself by the way, or is that borrowed? Because it's wonderful. Also love how the music sounds different when you dive under water.

Thanks everyone! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

And actually, the music is one of the two things I didn't do myself. I downloaded the music off Newgrounds, from several artists.
I'm thinking about asking CloneVas ( the one who's remaking all the R1 music ) to make a soundtrack specific for the game though. I've listened to his other music, and it's really good too... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

That. Looks. Orsum.

If it ever gets released properly, I'm buying it.

06-15-2009, 03:04 PM
Thanks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
But buying? No, it'll be freeware. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
Besides, I don't think I would even be allowed to charge money for a game based on the Rayman universe...

Oh ok.

Freeware? Even better http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Hey everyone! Just to keep you up to date, here are some screenshots of what I've improved in the past 4 days.




There are new health circles, new windows, and a new moon... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
Oh, and the temple is a LITTLE brighter.
There's more that I've done in the past 4 days, but you can't notice that in the screenshots. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
Here's everything I've fixed/improved/added since the video:
- The health circles now turn yellow when you get hurt! ^^
- Hand Swinging in the running and swimming animations is not out of time anymore.
- Ledge grabbing is fast now!
- The head is not as 'still' as it was before while running normally and running fast.
- The second moon has been re-enabled in the code. I had disabled it by accident... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
- I have increased the brightness in the temple a little bit.
- I've finally fixed a huge problem I had with rings! You are now able to grab purple lums easily. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
- There are better windows now ( take a look at the screenshots! ). ^^

I guess that's all. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
Oh, wait. I'm also waiting for CloneVas/InfinityVas' ( the one who's remaking all the R1 music ) reply. I asked him if he wanted to make the music for this game or not. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

EDIT -> I just made a logo for my "game studio". http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The game looks beautiful man, can't wait to try it out.

07-03-2009, 05:17 AM
Thanks! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
I can't wait to have the demo finished so you can try it out. :P

Anyway, here's some progress.
I haven't worked on this game very much this week. Actually, I only made the level design ( not the graphics yet ) for the third part of the first level.

Also, the guy who I asked to make music for my game a few weeks ago doesn't seem to reply at all. That's why I decided to have a go at making music myself, and here's the result. I'm quite satisfied with it, even if it's obviously not as good as professional game music. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Here it is! ^^
I plan to use it as the main menu music, or maybe as a theme for Electrix, because it fits great for both the main menu and Electrix's story.
Please tell me if you like it or not, or what you would like to change to it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hey it's good in all but it's not really a Rayman fan game without Rayman.

07-10-2009, 12:36 PM
It is. It's a game that 'steals' the universe, some characters, etc. from the Rayman games, that's why it's a Rayman fangame. Rayman is mentioned in the game though.

Oh, by the way, I probably won't use the piece of music I posted in the previous post.

This game sounds more like Rabbids go home.

07-10-2009, 01:03 PM
It so doesn't! I'ts great! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Argh, what do you want, do you want me to stop working on this and never look at or play real Rayman games again or something? NO. What you said is so wrong... Oh well, you're probably one of the Rabbid noobs anyway, and you call yourself a "Rayman fan" because you like the "Rayman" ( more like Raving Rabbids ) games. You have probably never even tried the old Rayman games, like Rayman 1, 2 and 3. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

His comments are so nonsensical and dumb, I'd just ignore him.
As long as the game happens with Rayman characters, in the Rayman universe, it's a fan game.

07-12-2009, 07:19 AM
No No No it's just that i've seen better
p.p.s i thought the rabbids were ok but they could never match to Rayman like said in one of message YAY! IGN has saved Rayman that is what i said to lomonii now would a Rabbid noob say that!
p.p.p.s Okay Limely You've convinced me.

07-12-2009, 07:31 AM
p.p.p.p.sUbisoft are Noobisoft if they keep up the rabbids with Rayman!AKKK I'M STARTING TO LIKE THE RABBIDS THEY'RE STARTING TO BRAINWASH ME SNAP OUT OF IT SUPERFAN1!
