The New Feathers of Pekka Kana

That's right! The unlikely hero - the rooster with brains size of a peanut - is coming back. Pekka Kana 3 is the latest game project Piste Gamez is working with. The project started in January (2007) and our humble goal is that the game would be finished in 2009 before that year's Assembly event (which is held every year), and the Game Development Competition they have there. We'll see what happens. There is still a long long way to go before the new Pekka will see the sunlight.

This time the PK team has grown from one man project to a team effort. The core team working with the game consists of me doing the graphics and doing the major part of the game design, and Jerome ... uh sorry, XFactor doing all the coding. Outside of Piste Gamez comes composer Mikko Tarmia, who is doing the music for the game. Since this is a big project, we will probably need more help. Especially with writing the story and doing the levels.

So far we have worked quite a lot to improve the visual side of the game, and Jerome a.k.a. "Mr. Born To Code" has done a huge job with the Editor, that will be used to create the game. It's far from ready, but I'm already having tons of fun with it. Unfortunately the actual game is in very early stages, but I expect that to change since we are giving it more focus now.

Images used to decorate this blog were taken from misc. screen shots of some PK3 test levels. They give you a clue of the new visual style of the game, but the actual game graphics will be more brighter than the images you see here, since I had to adjust them quite a bit to make them better background graphics. And as you can see (if you have played PK2), Pekka indeed has new feathers ;)

wonderful game, but I am stuck on Level 6 of Rooster Island 1. It seems impossible to open the first locks, because the key never touches the locks. Occasionally can I open the lock above the spotted egg and that's about it.

Anonymous 27/03/09 stuck on Level 6, have you solved yr problem? Read Pekkafan's help, it's great.

I opened all the locks by jumping on the first blue switch. This I did after killing the first red rabbit, going up the hill and the suspended rocks. Not easy, but it can be done. Do not collect the weapon, though. It is much weaker than the megaphone.
I am now stuck on Level 7, as I can't get back up from the well after collecting the weapon to kill the bees.
Schiappa.

Jyry i can't speak your language, but i scence that you want help on level 7 on Rooster island 1. Here's what i'm gonna tell you. Just use the level editor and delete all bee hives. I haven't done that in rooster island 1 or 2 because when i was playing them i didn't know about the editor and that was 4 years ago.
