I’d like to say I went down with a glorious ring of the clock, as the time ran out. But if I were to burn through the night, chuging something that would resemble coffee jello I would surely be out for the better part of tommorow. And I just can’t afford that. I guess this LD is just not to be.
I need to prepare myself better next time. My game this time had some potential, It wasn’t jsut some lame ass idea I usually go with. But I spent almost no time on it the first day, just enough to get my framework up. And today I bravely took on my herculean task thinking I could still salvage it, and at least make it playable. But I have failed again.
Next time I need better preperations all around. Just a good idea or refeined game engine just don’t work out. You need the package. So until next time, I will either finish up my SDL framework or learn some other killer framework or game engine. I will also buy a box of energy drinks and burn through saturday and sunday. I will find a peacefull spot, where I won’t be distracted by every little event. I will try to take monday off, so I can charge to the finish line, and more importantly, have a day dedicated to sleep. Also I will prepare for any other possible scenario, that could prevent me from finishing a kick ass game ( mother nature will not have the best of me!).
