I didn’t do much last night, and today I was outside most of the time because it’s FUCKING BEAUTIFUL outside. Also I had to work this afternoon. SO I’m pretty far behind but I do have some progress to show.
Got some snakes. Also have an npc that follows the character. Game Maker’s built in pathfinding is shitty, but it will have to do. I did try out some of my own lazy pathfinding code, in which my npc would just step toward the character and bounce off walls, but that looked stupid. SO I’m using Game Maker’s motion planning stuff, and the npc MOSTLY follows the player… Although he sometimes snaps back to the beginning of a path, and sometimes he just wanders off the screen like a retard. But HEY I’m making a game and it’s fun!
Also made some music last night… In fact, that was one of the first things I did after I saw the theme. If I decide to post a video later you’ll hear it. I’m going to add some enemies and build more of the map tonight, and then tomorrow I should have most of the day free so maybe I can FINISH this thing.
Oh, and my screen just flickered a few times. Maybe the power will go out.
