Project details

This is the “healbeam campaign”, a set of 8 levels that tell the next chapter of the Project Alexandria story. These levels are mostly already developed, and even better than the training levels.

It includes two “songs” written by Ethan: “Sipping Hot Chocolate” and “Deadlines”. You also get sound effects and a batch of graphics made by Carl to fill out the campaign. You get the same standard of quality Sixth Floor Labs has shown in the training campaign.

Plus, you get to do your part in bringing high quality games to Linux!

It’s $40,000, less $40 that someone gave me in person a year ago.

PEOPLE, DO NOT DONATE. THIS IS A JOKE. Ethan you should be ashamed for even trying to take FORTY [moderated] THOUSAND DOLLARS for this.

Site/screens for those who havent seen it.

In case you’re looking for the training levels, the first release is at… . Lots of people don’t like the retro style, I guess that’s a valid choice.

Hi guys, Ben from microPledge here. Just noting that the $40,000 pledge by “lamegame” is rather suspect. Since he made it, we’ve tightened things up so hopefully this sort of thing won’t happen again.

We’ll delete the pledge in a day or so, unless he happens to come back and put his money where his mouth is. :-)

Thanks for the link to the training levels. The screenshots may be retro, but the game-play … that’s pretty cool. Reminds me of the world’s first video game: PDP 1’s good ol’ Spacewar! - only considerably fancier.

Man, did you realize that back then people in suit and tie used to play computer games?

Berwyn, despite being black-and-white, that “back then” photo you linked to was actually taken in May 2007. Apparently it’s Vint Cerf, “father of the internet”, playing Spacewar at an ICANN meeting.

Ha! So it was. Well, I guess people still do!

Ok, the $40,000 pledge by lamegame was invalid and has been removed. We’ve taken steps against similar glitches in future and have also marked him as a suspect user and adjusted his privileges.

I’m interested in seeing this game out also too.

I do hope that you advertise it more - I just came across a post in about it, nowhere else.

How do you make the training levels revert back to the start? I’ve done some of them but my son wants to start from the beginning now. Cheers.

glasserc 16 years ago link

Once you get to the “That’s all folks” screen, it ought to start from the beginning if you start it up again. If that doesn’t work, however, the file to delete is ~/.local/share/6fl/alexadria/levels. If you’re running Windows, ~ might be c:\Documents and Settings, c:\, or somewhere else entirely.
