Location, Location, Location – Damn the Deadlines

Still going on the Mini-LD. It’s my first time, so I figure I’ll get the blatant cheating out of the way now; it’s been more than 48 hours on the wall clock. I probably only have 12 hours of dev time so far, so I’m running with that. =)

Javascript is a tricky mistress/master when you’re not accustomed to working with it. I’m learning the CraftyJS framework at the same time (for the second time). Got the concept for a data-driven horror-ish story game pretty well worked out and more than half-implemented. It’s almost interactive now.

The premise is that the player is a location that has experienced something wrong. My sample case is a house which experienced a tragedy. Some folk have chosen to spend the night at the house, and it’s your job (as the house) to communicate the tragedy to the occupants through metaphysical actions. Your basic set of actions can produce different outcomes based on the person and the part of the house they occupy. The player learns the story through the experiences of the visitors.

    This sounds awesome! I can’t wait to see it.

    I feel you pain programming in JavaScript and learning a new framework.
