It’s 8am and I’m starting now

I don’t know how many LDs I joined, but I only had one really successful attempt and this weekend I wanna make it two. And by successful I mean that I actually finish a game.

My setup is that I’m using Game Maker: Studio to create a HTML5/Windows game. I’m using Photoshop to do some simple Pixel Art graphics. I’ll probably use sfxr to make sound effects.

The Base Model

As for the genre, I really want to make a local multiplayer arena fighting game like Tower Fall. Not the most popular or wise genre to pick for a jam game, as you need more than one player to actually experience it, but I fell in love again with local multiplayer and hope that the game I create can be played when I hang out with friends in the future.

I already have two ideas for a game. Connected Worlds wasn’t a favorite of mine, but it’s not a bad starting point. Today I will implement the basic movement and collision detections, while also drawing all the graphics I need so that I can create the actual game tomorrow.

So good luck to everyone! :)

    Looks like we’re in the same timezone :)

    Yeah, I think Connected Worlds is just the common denominator, least offensive to everyone. But, as you said, not bad.

    Good luck!
