Afterwards…

Oh guys ! I’m thrill with joy and excitement when I see all the comments on my game page.
As I said in previous posts, It’s my first game and I really appreciate all your review and suggestion. Know that I fell in love with Dusty in the past days while I was giving him life. So I’ve decided to put him on a longer journey.

For the LD version of the game, I use Multimedia Fusion 2. Even if I have little experiences with the software, it show some limits to do what I really wanted to do (like an online version, add particles effect and some tweeks on the gameplay). But figuring that out don’t make a programmer of me, so let’s try another Drag’n’drop gamemaker software. Two choices Game Maker or Construct 2… Construct 2 it is !

Why ?
Simply because I want to, since the LD ends. And some of you seems to appreciate the game, enough to wish it was longer, and so do I. Let’s make it happen!
Know that it could take some times since I have no experiences with Construct 2. Plus, I only have the trial version (since I can’t afford the pro one yet, one day maybe, would be cool if I notice I like it a lot). I’ve began setting up the basics but there is still some “meh” point (but I’ll sort it out). Construct 2 seems to have strong bases and export to html5 (wich is great for online game, but not so on potecting my sprite… do I need to protect them ?).

First screenshot !

Thanks again for everything. Such a blast, I think it’s the first time I ever feel that way.

If you haven’t played the LD version, here it is : Dusty’s Adventure

Thanks !!! Ten thousand times ! Thank you !

 

EDIT : Bonus, the Timelapse of the past week end 😉

Dusty’s Adventure – Timelapse

 

EDIT 2 : POST MORTEM

Almost forgot that part. So…

Good part :
– Release somthing (it wasn’t so sure during the last 5 hours).
– Did some animation, and I’m really proud of the Spider.
– Did a character and a narrative line to go with it.
– Sounds and Music came out not so bad after all.

Bad part :
– Too much time pass on making the animations and arts, forgot to think about levels. My game is really short, it’s not even a game.
– Almost eat and drink nothing during this time.
– MMF2 is really frustrating in his conception.

Bottom line, I draw, animate, make stuff since… well… forever. But this Ludum Dare was not just a competition but a real challenge. Just because even if Ido a lot, I never show anything. With the LD, I had to release it and it was a first. Most of all, it’s one of the first time that I’m proud of something. Maybe that gives a bad image of me, but, I’m just proud of it even with the bugs and shortness of it.
