Ugly Start

August 24th, 2013 6:20 am

I got up this morning at about 5am to start. Where has the time gone???? Well I’ve got the basic gameplay up and running, but my god is it ugly. I’m just using placeholder art so far, but even my rectangles are way uglier than the norm. Kind of like the cast of Thomas Was  Alone if they were all horribly disfigured. I’ll have to try and draw some sprites now. Small and from above like Super Smash TV. I’ll be using inkscape although I wish I had learned how to do pixel art.

What do you do when there is the possibilty of loads of gun shots going off at the similar time, so it get’s all computery sounding and horrid? I could have a few different gun shot effects, but I’m thinking I may check to see how many are playing and if it’s above a certain number not play it. Problem is firefox doesn’t play short sounds so they will all have to be over 1 second long.

I’ll tell you my game idea but don’t tell me if it’s been done loads of times before, or if last years winner did it or something. I don’t want to know, i’ve come to far. Basically every ten seconds you are cloned. And your new clone does just what you did for last ten seconds. If you moved left he moves left, and most importantly if you fired your gun, he fires his gun. You have to shoot as many clones as you can. The more you shoot, the more they shoot  at you.
