Title: The Banketh - The Video Game

Year: 2017

Developer: RetroNES Software

Console: Nintendo NES

Demo: The Banketh - The Video Game demo


A little history

The development of this video game began as a simple curiosity that went a little bit of the hands... The 8-bit Nintendo NES was the most successful console in the late 80's and early 90's. Many young people of that time are now a few years old and look at that time with nostalgia, as in RetroNES Software. Being able to create a video game for this platform sounded to science fiction, but today it is real.

At the beginning of February 2016 they began to make the first tests showing screens of bottom and some sprite for sooner rather than later to begin to move them and even to animate them.

Once the problems of collisions between objects were solved, the idea of ​​creating a videogame was taking shape. The tools and the necessary help existed thanks to the support of many people of the scene of the NES, so that it became something real.

By mid-May, there was already an imaginary world on paper.

At the same time, RetroNES Software is taking shape and consolidating to give a representative image of a video game that was still brewing.

Month by month The Banketh - The Video Game was created with enough effort. Hours and hours of work that finally saw their end in early December.

Five real and physical copies of The Banketh were created that were given at Christmas to the real protagonists of this adventure.

The hosting was collected with enthusiasm and pleasure, and encouraged by the result, RetroNES Software is seen with the strength to create a unique and numbered print for all those who claim it.

As you can see, we only need the capital to make this dream a reality.

And what is the video game?

We are faced with an adventure with a lot of old school air. We control Rulo, the protagonist, who one day being so calm on the beach with his friends, observes how they are kidnapped by a giant mutant emerged from the depths of the bay of the city of Santander.

To rescue them we must overcome four levels plus a final fifth level that is where we must defeat the mutant monster. At each level there is an end boss who has kidnapped one of our friends.

These levels are developed by different places of Santander:

  • Level 1: Sewers. As you can imagine, it will be the perfect place to catch anything but health.

  • Level 2: The offices. Located in the Technology Park, we suspect that this is where these bugs were born. Probably the result of some experiment that did not go well.

  • Level 3: The walk park. Recently remodeled, its blue floor does not convince citizens in general, but it seems that these mutants themselves.

  • Level 4: The cargo ship. In its interior it stows several vehicles destined to Belgium. We better stop it before these mutants invade the rest of the planet.

  • Level 5: The street of the bars. An old typical street of Santander with several bars and pubs of alternative roll where the mutants are giving a good feast. Here we must face the Final Boss *.

All this is very good, but I like the Harleys.

No problem. Between level and level you have the opportunity to lead, along with the protagonist, a real Harley Davidson model Dyna Low Rider 8bits version.

You will climb on the back of this machine of 1.450cc and 79cv of power totally homologated by the DGT in order to reach your destination overcoming various bumps, fences and barriers caused by the endless works of Santander City.

You can download the demo of the video game The Banketh containing the first level and sub-level of the Harley: The Banketh - The Video Game (DEMO)

Great! but... What is The Banketh?

The Banketh is a name that means nothing. It is a word game that mixes Spanish and English. When our protagonists were very young, they spent a lot of time sitting on a bench in a street near their houses, and sometimes they played the 'Spanglis', a game that consisted of inventing words in English from words in Spanish; To just hang out and laugh a little at how ridiculous they sounded.

In this way, as they were always sitting on a bench, it occurred to them to play this same word and from there came 'banketh'. And since then they began to call those of The Banketh.

#05 / Curiosidad sobre la primera versión alpha del videojuego The Banketh

Este vídeo es una mera curiosidad sobre una primera alpha a modo de prueba que surgió durante el desarrollo de The Banketh, en mayo de 2016 (el año pasado).

Contenía los primeros enemigos, colisiones y objetos, así como el menú de selección. Además, las puertas entre pantallas eran funcionales, e incluso se pensó en desarrollar partes tanto en exterior como en interior dentro de un mismo nivel.

Como curiosidad veréis el objeto caja, que se podía empujar e incluso interactuaba con los enemigos.

También se puede observar que en un primer momento se pensó en la forma en la que los enemigos hacían daño, empujando a Rulo hacia un lado. Se descarto por problemas con la colisión de las paredes.

La música que suena pertenece a un juego de @dougeff que utilizó en uno de sus muchos tutoriales sobre desarrollo para la NES.

#03 / Sobre las instrucciones

Esta es una página de las instrucciones del videojuego. Pertenecen a la versión beta de las navidades pasadas, la que se regaló a los protagonistas del videojuego.

El tono de humor es importante para añadir valor al carisma de los enemigos. Las calidades se mejorarán.

#02 / Una semana después, un tercio del proyecto superado

Antes de nada, debo daros muchas gracias a todos por todo el apoyo recibido. El miércoles de la semana pasada empezó este crowdfunding y siete días después ya tenemos 1.167€ recaudados; una tercera parte.

Desde el equipo de RetroNES Software no podríamos estar más contentos. A modo de agradecimiento, os vamos a mostrar unas cuantas fotografías del momento de desarrollo del videojuego The Banketh - The Video Game sobre el papel, que sobre todo a los más curiosos seguro que agradará.

Antes de empezar, dibujar los conceptos sobre el papel. Ya se había pensado en las fases de la motocicleta, y tambien se empezó a imaginar sobre la perspectiva de los niveles.

Los mapas de los cinco niveles. Al final hubo demasiados cambios y no tienen que ver nada con el resultado final.

Inicialmente la calle iba a ser transitable, y había que andar hasta la motocicleta antes de montar en ella.

Esquema sobre el desarrollo de las colisiones. Sin duda lo que más trajo de cabeza al equipo.

Mención especial a los colegas de La Grúa , pequeños fabricantes de cerveza artesana, que colaboran lanzando una Edición Especial de su Australian Pale Ale con la portada del videojuego en el etiquetado.

Os animamos a que colaboréis en este crowdfunding y aportéis vuestro granito de arena para que este sueño se haga realidad.
