Brainwave the game

Hey, I finally figured I’d make atleast one blog entry while still working.

This LD I started off pretty irritated at the theme, I didn’t like it at all. It felt like it constrained me too much and although IRC was supportive, I couldn’t come up with an idea for the first hour I was awake and aware of the theme. After about an hour I just started programming the framework, without any idea what to make. I figured it’d come up as I was working, a whole new approach for me. After I commented on someones entry and I suddenly got an idea. I was going to make a brain that grew and shrunk and it could overcome obstacles that way. To do that you had to increase brainwaves. This could be done by correctly answering math questions, but after a while I figured this would be boring. So I changed the brain to a pulse and with the pulse I could issue commands. With these commands I would have some guy do something.

After I programmed the pulse I got an idea how to have the guy move around. And then I felt like adding random sounds. Now, I have something that looks like this:

If anyone feels like trying the prototype: http://www.deepflame.nl/ld11/Brainwave0.2.rar

Be sure to leave comments if you try it. :)
