Real life.. you win again…

Sadly i have been unable to continue development, owing to real world commitments

I did however have time, to adjust the behavior of the spheres, and the controls slightly however the game is still just a 3d version of asteroids no matter how have i look at XD

Not my best effort by a long shot. However all is not lost however as i achieved 3 things this time out.

1 :- i made a 3D game at a jam! (admittedly not a very good one but still!)

2 :- i had a massive amount of fun.

3 :- i finally got to grips with unity something i have been looking to do for a long time.

Silver lining and all that.

game is uploaded to http://www.kongregate.com/games/FerrittLD/defend-planet-tiny for all those interested.

Apologies for the late arrival of the fist update but i have been wrestling with unity all morning.

Have reached the point where i have a ship flying around in space, able to shoot lazers, now to get onto the collision and we can move onto some intresting stuff like ai

Tiny world defence

Pew Pew!

As for unity. I kinda like it, its a little awkward at first but the documentation is fantastic make learning very easy.

Just keep swimming…

I am in!

Bit touch and go as to whether i would make this event, but i think i can manage to put aside enough time to make something, so in four hours lets get cracking!

Tools: – either Unity or XNA depending upon the idea i come up with, would love to go with unity so more people can play the game.

Gimp 2 for the artwork

Sounds provided from somewhere in the Internets.

So good luck to all, look forward to playing the games!

Boss fight!

If it is big and shoots big lazers at you its a boss right?

Death beams!

These spawn every 6 waves, just to really wreck your day.

All features are in ahead of time, all that remains is deciding on an ending condition, maybe a boss fight will suffice?

Now with 100% more explosions!

Nearly there, final push.

Made things a little more shiny, added some bloom, and gave the planets different textures looks a lot better :)

Learnt to implement bloom into projects something i have wanted to do for a while now :)

Added some keyboard controls too and a very boring yet functional menu screen

yawn's-vill, yet i would rather spend more time on the main game

Coming together nicely just need some thruster trails, and then its time for the sound.

100% more death!

AI is now 100% less friendly, however to compensate player is now 100% more deadly to AI.

In other-words things now die when they get shot!

also added power up create’s and a basic level system. shoot more baddy’s and more show up to ruin your day.

Pew Pew!

As you can see the games visuals need a lot of shiny. something I will work on tomorrow.




We have flight!

First time doing the ludem dare so apologies if this ends up in the wrong place.

I have decided to make a space game, have a ship capable of jumping around between planet’s, landing on them with the correct orientation and then taking off again.


Next gonna work on changing direction in flight and then its time for the PEW PEW!
