It works. But it’s not a game. Yet.

The Duel now has working gameplay, to some degree. The beginning works, and the middle works. There’s no end per se, but you can play the same 10 seconds over and over if you want.

The problem is that it’s 2am and it will probably take another 6 hours to finish the game to a reasonable standard. I could submit to LD as-is, but it’s barely playable. I’ve only spent 10 – 12 hours working on the game due to other commitments and being in an awkward time zone. So I’m going to polish it up tomorrow and submit it to the catch-all that seems to be the jam. I think I’ll feel happier releasing a more finished product. Although it’s a shame to delay it, because it’ll be compared to games by larger teams and games with much more work put into them. Maybe one year I’ll manage to do LD without interruption.


Anyway, progress pictures:
