13 hours into the dare, it took me WAY too long to post the first prototype
What happened is: I wanted to improve on my LD22 game, so I started to think too much about how to implement a non-tiled top down navigation engine. Result: I panicked a little and lost a lot of time. After a while, I realized that the extra features that I want to add in this game are already a ton of extra work, and trying new data structures now would be waaay more than I could bite. KISS.
Anyway, here is the first prototype! You can move around, you can do a few things, and, most importantly, you can DIE.
You can control your ant-like-winged-faerie with the arrow keys, and press “space” to interact with the environment. Right now you can only interact with the ladder, the anthill, the fruity bush and the queen. You can also pause pressing ESC.
Now for dinner, and then to add a moving enemy!
