V-Sides Development Video


This video shows the prototypes of the V-Sides at about an hour increments, as you can see in the video Rescue Helicopter was actually harder than it is now. Most of the time was spent trying to get to the tasty gameplay center, even though the graphics look like they must've taken months they actually did not.

By the way if you're doubting that Rescue Helicopter is possible to beat, here's a screenshot proving you wrong:


If you didn't doubt that it was possible then you win a prize.

I'm glad you left the heli game as difficult as it is. I enjoy games that simulate a difficult task by being... well, difficult.

I managed to get the hang of it about my 4th game, and now i find it strangely zen-like to stage insane tree-top (or below!) rescues.

I think it might be reflected in my love for this heli game, but I'm most looking forward to the Lunar Lander clone. I've always wanted one that allows the player to rendezvous with the CSM

Yeah the V-Sides are kind of a microcosm of what No Quarter will be, some people will like certain games more than others, but I think they're all good. Anyone found the Easter Egg yet?

Any hints on the easter egg? :D

There's a hint at the end of the video, also use a gamepad!

Tried 2 different gamepads but nothing happens:S
What am I doing wrong?

Alex said...

You'll know if you done it right or not by the time the title screen comes up.

Sam said...

I just can't make it work:(
I press the buttons from the video when the cryptic sea logo appears but nothing happens. I even tried a gamepad emulator to make sure the problem wasn't the gamepads.. HELP!!
