October challenge – I’m in! I have never finished a game, so this will be a tough one.

My LD #21 entry NO ESCAPE was justifiably criticized for its lack of gameplay, so that’s my main concern this time around. While I still lack the programming skills to really make a game, I recently stumbled upon StencylWorks which is basically a WYSIWYG type editor where the programmer stuff is dumbed down to the point that anyone could probably figure it out. The coolest feature to me is that it spits out .swf’s, so if I can get my game on some Flash Portal it may not be too hard to get that $1. While I’m sure there are some practical limitations to what a program like this can do, the gameplay mechanics I have in mind are going to be pretty basic. Once again, my focus will be on visuals, atmosphere and ‘the experience’.

Here’s my first concept art, which should also serve nicely as my first tile set:

    Nice look! Stencyl is actually an extremely flexible and well-designed toolkit, so I think you’ve made a good choice there…
