Hi guys,

I made a maze-solving game called Pyramid. It is about adventurer wandering through the labyrinths of an ancient pyramid.

In each level he has to find the ladder before the light runs out and the mummy catches him.

To assist him on the way he has the knowledge out about a technology to rotate the pyramid because the light source is coming only from one side.

Good:

  • I knew what i was doing the whole time.
  • I managed to get the code done relatively quickly. The first version was done on first day.
  • Everything was done by myself.
  • Some friends played it during development and told me their perspectives. I thought it is not a good idead to show the unfinished prototype but surprisingly it helped a lot.

Wrong:

  • Spent too much time on graphics because I am not good at it.
  • Tried to do the sound and music myself and this is the reason why the game has no sound and no music. I was not able to put together egyptian-sounded music that was not horrible.
  • On last day I haven’t slept much only two hours. I think this was mistake because all the stuff from than took at least twice as time as it should take normally.

For the next time:

  • Just find the music online.
  • Sleep more :-)
  • Get more friends to play it during to tell me what is wrong.

 

LD was fun and the feeling of having the game done is very rewarding. Already waiting for the next jam :-)

Aaand big gratulations to all who managed to finish the game.

Now let’s play,
