    I love how he shows that he's using Scratch (which is free) in the first 3 seconds of the video

    If I named a game "Don't Die" could Klei or whoever sue me because the name is similar to "Don't Starve?"

    (The answer is they'd get their asses laughed out of court.)
    It's not just a similar name though. This is like making a game called "Halo: The Big Pizza" and then selling it. How is that not copyright infringement?
    Edit:
    wait nevermind. I read wrong. I thought the title was Grand Theft Auto Pizza. Nevermind. Even then I still would've been wrong my bad

    Hi. My name is Ned Reid, co-founder of Shandy Pants Studios and "Grand Theft Pizza Delivery". I will be happy to answer some things.


    What the fuck is he even planning to spend that money on
    Here is a Breakdown:
    £160 - Construct 2 costs.
    £50 - Graphic editor costs (Currently done in MS Paint!!!)
    £170 - Kickstarter fees, rewards and taxes.
    £100 - Music Editor and soundtrack development costs.
    £70 - Steam Greenlight entry fee.
    £25 - Google developers license.
    £150 - Ouya console.
    £30 - More kickstarter fees.

    You can see how much game development costs. It all adds up to more than you think.

    Is that kid still using an old Dell Dimension?
    Yeah. Going on 10 years old now. It has:

    8GB RAM
    AMD FX 6350 Processor
    AMD Radeon HD 7870 XT.

    Not bad for something originally running on XP.



    why

    Honestly though the kid does seem like someone who is generally motivated and while it is obviously not that good of a game, it's still giving a 13 year old a good experience which might motivate him to improve once he's more mature and actually do something with his interest.

    Or maybe that's just me being too optimistic about a 13 year old getting 813 pounds.

    Edited:

    Yeah it's probably just me being optimistic, looking through the kickstarter updates there's very little of a 'thank you' for the 800 pounds collected, nor even a single update referring to the original stretch goal being met.
    I'm sorry that I couldn't make a "thank you" Update sooner. I was busy with exams and the game recently and couldn't do it. I didn't make an update for the first stretch goal because I achieved it so quickly. I guess I am a bit tardy.

    Really I am glad to make the game, as I thin it will be a life achievement. I love the game. Everything from the style of graphics, to control of the car. It will be, in my opinion, one of he greatest games ever made.

    I reckon you could actually pull this off, you've got the emotional drive to make something great, and that's important. You hold onto that desire to succeed, and you could go far.

    You know, we always make fun of such kickstarters, but I do hope you are serious about this, and don't just want some easy money.

    I guess I can only refer you to this video that was posted recently: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2b0tSu0QDQ0



    If you are serious about games, though, I suggest that you learn to code with a proper programming language - it will give you much more freedom to create.

    A good (and completely free!) framework is LÖVE, which was used to create games such as Mari0

    LÖVE games are made using the Lua programming language. I'm afraid I am not competent enough to offer you advice on how to learn a programming language, though. Maybe somebody else will help me on this, or you can just start by googling "getting started with lua" and then going somewhere from there.

    It wasn't intentional. Well done for pointing it out, though. If you do have extreme OCD, however, you will be pleased to know that there is an updated drawing.

    Just wondering, how did you find this thread? I've noticed sometimes people find their stuff posted on here like a few of the profiles in the worse steam profile thread.

    Just to say, everyone. We now have a pre-order page for anyone who missed the kickstarter. You can find it here.

    I just searched "Grand Theft Pizza Delivery" into google. There are many threads for it. On here, neogaf and newgrounds especially.

    Guys I got a screenshot of the map from the leaked Alpha footage.




    I overlayed it on the GTA5 map to get a good idea of scale. I reckon the depth will make up for the slightly smaller size.

    I want to see you run this on a rasberry pi.

    Edited:

    I'm 90% sure that is what he is also coding it on, since scratch comes with it.

    The game is not compatible with a raspberry pi. Due to the game's demanding system requirements. The original (Scratch) prototype had trouble running on a 4GB ram computer. The new construct 2 version now has better optimization, and can run 1080p 60fps.

    What about Anti-Aliasing?
    Will there be modding support?
    Will it be on steam?
    Can people buy in-game exclusives?
    Will it be open source?

    It is probably that demanding because every single object construct is an entity with its own collision boxes.

    Edited:

    You boast an ineptitude of coding, not exceptional quality.

    1. Anti aliasing will probably be enabled
    2. There may be modding support, if people ask for it.
    3. If the greenlight succeeds.
    4. Probably not.
    5. No.

    We will see if early access is possible. We will try to but we may not. We will try to use the Desura alpha scheme if we can get on there. If all fails (Which is unlikely), we will distribute the game though our site. Sooner or later, I will post an update on the kickstarter with more details.
