📕 Description [fr]

Un shooter spatial et action-RPG dans lequel le joueur récupère des pièces de rechange sur les ennemis qu'il détruit, par les studios Pixelsaurus Games & Future Crayon (Brian Chan).

Captain Forever Remix est un remake du jeu éponyme (de Jarred "Farbs" Woods) et une ode aux jeux des années 90, mixant shooter spatial et action-RPG en 2D, dans lequel le joueur élimine des tas de vaisseaux ennemis (générés de manière procédurale), lui permettant de récupérer toutes sortes de pièces de rechange pour améliorer son propre vaisseau - qu'il aura tout intérêt à fortifier au maximum pour être en mesure de résister aux épreuves qui l'attendent.



Votre petit frère mutant est un abruti complet et doit être arrêté ! Il a gelé le soleil, a poché l'oeil de Jupiter, a bu les océans de Neptune, et a fêlé la Terre comme un oeuf !
Partez à travers un système solaire foiré pour mettre un terme à ce grand merdier une fois pour toute !

Captain Forever Remix est une lettre d'amour à ce qu'il était de grandir dans les années 90, lorsque les jeux étaient bien plus cool dans votre imagination qu'à l'écran.
Votre mémoire est un peu vague, mais vous êtes à peu près sûr que Captain Forever a toujours été l'une des choses les plus cool d'incarner.
Captain Forever Remix est aussi une lettre d'amour aux tardigrades, parce que les tardigrades sont étonnants. Captain Forever Remix est une mise à jour officielle des deux premiers jeux de la série Captain Forever (Captain Forever et Captain Successor) et est en cours de développement avec la bénédiction (et la contribution) du créateur original, Farbs (lien ci-dessus).

Description

Captain Forever Remix is a 2D action roguelike where you create a spaceship and blast apart randomly-generated enemies for spare parts. You better build a pretty tough ship, because you're gonna need it. Your mutant little brother is being a total butthead and must be stopped! He froze the Sun, poked out Jupiter's eye, drank Neptune's oceans, and cracked Earth like an egg! Set off across a messed-up Solar System to put a stop to the big jerkface once & for all! Captain Forever Remix is a love letter to what it was like growing up in the early 90's, when games looked way cooler in your imagination than they did on the screen. You dreamed under a glow-in-the-dark sticker sky about whatever it was you'd played that day on your aging beige PC. It was the golden-age of Nickelodeon cartoons, and Ren & Stimpy was banned at home so you watched at your friend's house. You'd spot bizarre imagery and characters on gig posters plastered on the telephone poles down by the takeout shop, and wonder what that's all about. Your memory is a bit hazy, but you're pretty sure that Captain Forever was one of the coolest things to be into. Captain Forever Remix is also a love letter to Tardigrades, because tardigrades are amazing. Captain Forever Remix is an official update to the first two games in the Captain Forever series (Captain Forever and Captain Successor) and is being built with the blessing of (and input from) the original creator Farbs.

History

The original Captain Forever was released in 2009 by Farbs, when he and Dean were both working at Irrational Games Australia. It won a bunch of awards including "Best Game" at IGF China in 2009, and was played and enjoyed by tons of people, including Dean, who spent many, many hours fine-tuning his ship design and hunting down Peacekeepers. Farbs continued to work on the Captain Forever series over the years, including the direct sequel "Successor," and a couple of larger expansions to the original concept. It's now 2014. Dean and Brian approached Farbs a little while back about making Captain Forever Remix, and he loved the idea. The plan is for Remix to remain true to all of the gameplay elements that made Forever and Successor so incredibly unique and charming, and expand on it in ways that don't break the magic formula. It's time for a new generation of indie game lovers to be introduced to and enjoy Captain Forever in a whole new way!



🌍️ Wikipedia:

Captain Forever is the name for both a series of space shooter games by Australian developer Jarred "Farbs" Woods and the first iteration of the series. Its name stems from both its development process, with new versions of the game being continuously developed and released and its endless gameplay. There are four games in the series, the first of which is free and supporters, for a one time fee of $9, may gain access to any future sequels released without being required to make any extra payments.

A standalone version, Captain Forever Remix, was created by Pixelsaurus Games who worked in conjunction with Woods to bring the title to modern systems. Remix was released to Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and Linux in March 2015.

Gameplay

In each game in the series, with the exception of Captain Impostor, the player pilots a ship with the ability to be expanded by attaching 'modules' (such as lasers or boosters) gained from defeated enemies to a command module, represented by a box containing a broken heart. The goal in the game is to keep your ship alive for as long as possible. As the game progresses, stronger enemy ships (labeled according to letters from the NATO phonetic alphabet) arrive. Destroying stronger ships increases the Law (levels within the game), until Protectors (Peacekeepers in the original game) arrive to attack. The game effectively ends after the first Protector is destroyed (replacing the command module's broken heart with a complete one) but the player may continue accumulating parts indefinitely. If the player's ship is destroyed, it explodes, destroying all ships in the immediate area and clearing the area for the player to begin rebuilding their ship from scratch. The default background is a grid of green lines over a black background with a faint image of a pilot's face in the middle. The background can be changed, however, to an image taken by the player's webcam.

Sequels

Captain Successor: Launched for supporters in November 2009, as the original game was made freely available to all players. This new game introduces a variety of new weapons, propulsion and defensive modules, as well as more types of enemy ships.

Captain Impostor: Released in March 2010, but is only available to supporters. It introduced the Clone Drive which copies enemy designs entirely and cannot be constructed module by module.

Captain Jameson: A project that was intended to become a full-fledged RPG, it got scrapped in early 2013, but is still playable by Captain Forever supporters. The modern version of this is The Dawn Star.

The Dawn Star: Originally labeled "Captain Jameson Reboot", is a revision of the previous iteration. A commonly agreed origin of the name comes from a member page on the game's forums. The purpose is to further expand the game and to improve game mechanics and aesthetics.

Awards

Captain Forever won the Best Game award at China's first Independent Games Festival in 2009.

Captain Forever Remix

Gameplay

Captain Forever Remix maintains the same gameplay as the original series, but includes a larger meta-game and framed around the concept of Saturday-morning cartoons.

At its core, the Remix version is similar to the main Captain Forever games. The player controls a spacecraft which they can build from various modules, fighting against other spacecraft and using modules knocked off from those to expand their own. The Remix version adds a more direct goal - completing 10 stages as the player races to the end of the solar system, facing strong enemies in each turn. The game is structured as a roguelike, as the encounters at each stage are procedurally-generated, and should the player's core unit be destroyed, they must start the game from the start. Each stage is completed by meeting a specific goal, such as destroying a ship of a given level (as assigned by the game). A larger meta-game, based on progress during a given playthrough, unlocks new "starter kits" for the initial ship, such as ships geared for long-range attacks, or for close-range overpowered attacks. The starter kits can be upgraded as well in the meta-game, providing better modules within the kit at the start.

The game is framed around Natalie Norberry, a schoolgirl that imagines herself as a cartoon character, Captain Forever, fighting to race to the edge of the solar system against enemies set at her by her younger brother.
