Because I like it. And I’m willing to make it.
Either that or it’s got something to do with the fact that I only rated about 7 games.
But lulzfish_4 rated many more games than I did yet performed bloody awfully. Maybe people are vicious when they see someone’s made a few mistakes. Or maybe they just can’t cope with 8 enemies firing targetted shots at them. I don’t know. (It’s pretty easy to dodge once you know your hit region.)
And he got 1.33 for audio? His game doesn’t even HAVE audio! DO YOU NOT KNOW HOW TO PRESS THE N/A BUTTON (obviously I had better people voting for mine because they knew how to press the N/A button for humour even though there was a bit in the game itself)
His game wasn’t even terrible. It was just a bit incomplete, and a bit rough around the edges. I’ve seen worse games that deserve worse scores, most notably a particular game which involved going around a huge-ass cavern picking up 50 identical things. It was not fun at all. I am neither naming this game nor this author, as everyone does duds every now and then and he doesn’t need to be remembered for such a dud.
Hell, his worst placing was in the theme department. I feel this is complete horseshit. If anything, this needed MORE things.
Come to think of it, if his game were some Unity hackjob, he’d get a much higher score because shitny*. I really don’t like that.
(* typo’d that, corrected that, decided to leave it in. It’s a new word, guys!)
If it’s any compensation, I at least did well in the audio department, and somehow did alright in the fun department.
MiniLD #42 is coming up. Provided my coursework doesn’t suddenly start kicking me in the crotch, I might take this time to learn how to use LÖVE, and then make a bullet hell shooter with it.
Alternatively, if emscripten decides to work, I might be able to make an asm.js port of my LD26 entry, and then I can gut the engine out and use that as base code. Hell, I might even stick in a few #define macros just to save my sanity (getting the texcoords right was somewhat tedious, lots of copy paste, thank you vim for being awesome).
And then I will make a bullet hell shooter.
Because I like bullet hell shooters.
And, to be quite honest, there are other people who do.—Maybe I’ll have enough time to stick in a few difficulty levels. I for one am not particularly good at my own game, but I can get a no-death run every now and then.At least I still find my game challenging.
