Not in but making games

I’m not “officially” participating this weekend because of a poor scheduling (or maybe it’s a good thing). I’m leading a workshop tomorrow of 2nd-3rd graders on how to make video games! I’ll show them LD and what people are working on, and we’ll see if we can throw together a little game.

Anyways, this amazing work of graphical beauty is me trying to get set up for that. Hopefully I’ll have a little generic game thinggy and we can drop the kids artwork and sounds in and add their ideas for gameplay. I’m using HaxeFlixel and haven’t really used that much before so I’m having to figure out everything. I finally got Spriter animations importing and figured out how to link them to a FlxSprite, probably not the best way to do it but it’s working so that’s good. The purple dude is a Spriter animation with two linked bones, and the red box is a FlxSprite for gameplay/collision purposes.

I’ll be watching everyone’s progress and I’ll post what me and the kids are working on, though it won’t be an actual jam entry. Next time I’ll schedule things better, seems like a really good theme┬áthis time.
