Well, only decided to try doing it at about 2:00 this afternoon, so this is probably┬áheaded for the Jam. At least I’ll have some more time!

So, some story: My title? Rocket Man Stan

Set in the late 60s/early 70s, our intepid hero, Stan, was sent on a covert mission by the USAF to the dark side of the moon, in order to test some space laser weaponry away from the prying eyes of the Soviets. Since this mission needed the utmost secrecy, he was sent alone… However, when his craft fails and he is forced to land on the dark side of the moon, he must fight his way to the other side to radio home for help. There will be such enemies as Soviet robots (They DID send one… but obviously not a humanoid like the game might have) and worker robots sent by none other than Aperture Science (Remember that scene in Portal 2 where Cave Johnson mentions senate hearings on missing astronauts? heh heh).

So, how far along am I? I’ve got a horrible tilemap and a moving Stan…

My horrible tile map and my awesome Stan

My plan:

  • Finish Stan (he only has an idle state right now)
  • Finish/expand tileset
  • Create more levels
  • Add enemies
  • Add menu, game lost, and game won screens
  • Add intro/outro
  • Add sounds
  • Bugfix
  • (if time) add music

If all else fails, I’ll just keep working on it and just keep it as another game to add to Eggplant Animation’s game library.
