If the baby stays in, I’m in

With my pregnant wife almost due I’ll hopefully be able to join this Ludum Dare. I’ve whispered to the unborn boy he should wait until at least monday with his ‘Hello World’…

Last Ludum Dare I spend the whole weekend not making a game, but making a small Javascript game library (which brings me as much satisfaction as an actual game being a pure programmer). This time I’ve polished the code a little bit and it seems like I’m ready to make an actual game with 100% my own library called Paca (no external libraries at all!).

But to do this I’ll have to declare the code I’m going to use, you can find it here:
https://github.com/royvanrijn/royvanrijn.github.io

Feel free to use or abuse it!

You can play around with this the test game here:

The framework should make it easy to implement a point-n-click adventure game, my favourite genre. If you want to see what the code looks like implementing the test game, please check out:
https://github.com/royvanrijn/royvanrijn.github.io/blob/master/script/game.js

Be sure to set “Paca.DEBUG = true” so see the navigation mesh. Otherwise it doesn’t make any sense right now.

ps. Yes it has animation bugs, but that is because I’m reusing sprite-instances, not the library.
pps. Obviously I won’t be reusing the sounds and/or sprites, those will be redrawn during the contest!

    You’re going to bail on the competition if your wife goes into labor? Where’s your dedication, man?
