Particles make everything better

Particles are awesome. It’s amazing how much better it feels to shoot an invader when it explodes into a pile of little dots. :)

Wow, I’m still awake working on this? Yep, and I still have to get up to go to my real job tomorrow…

This is fun, though – I haven’t worked on a game like this since The Love Letter. :)

I don’t think I’ll be finished to my satisfaction, even for the jam. I’d have to stay up all night or skip work tomorrow, and that’s not going to happen.

I’ll post a build soon. I’m just finalizing what I have so far…

    Just played “The Love Letter”. Cute game. Big thumbs up. I like you’re pixel art. I think you must have posted the little animated guy as a long strip near the start of the compo. Thought it looked cool.

    Hey, thanks! Yeah, I did post the animated guy as a strip about 24 hours ago, way back then (though he’s gone through some revisions since then). 😛

    Glad you like the pixel art. The artwork in The Love Letter was actually done by my friend Pat Kemp – the little pixel guy I made this weekend is actually my first serious attempt at animating beyond a two-frame walk cycle…
