Is it common that what you come up with in this practice seems like total shit to you?

I just spent the last six hours re-working all the assets in my game  because I still cant figure out a good hunk of code and what I have found is that I am terrible at UI design in general.  If I looked at my game without any prior knowledge I would just be confounded on what to do, and that is beyond the point of the obvious lack of direction.  I tried to do do something about having to make the evolutionary choices of a tree, but I think that was just a wee bit beyond me!

Anyways I am still in it!  Trying to make it into a playable game in the next 24 hrs is my goal.  Oh and sound.

Fully grown!

Finally got a piece of random work dealt with.

Got it to look something like a tree after a full randomization grow!  Whee!

Not a very pretty tree but so far it works!

So far the tree spawn two resources to collect, Water and Sun.  Using the two you evolve yourself into a grand tree.

Back to work, thought it looked cool!

Worked hard from start to now and got pretty much what I expected to get done, done.

Like all my friends here I started with a sketch page.  Mad did I stumble across a subject matter really quickly, but the actual mechanics are proving the most difficult.  What do I offer the player, to want to be a tree…

I have pretty weak programming skills so I knew I should hop on that first and at the end of my night, I have a procedurally generating tree that evolves through 4 different stages in its life ending up with this magnificence!  The boxes on the right are buttons 😀

Among my organized ideas I have; the layout of how I need to handle creating the actual sprites, an idea about where I can take the soundscape, and where to start with turning a tree simulator into an enjoyable experience!

Couple o’ cans of NoS down, and an early rise for a second Bons extravaganza so have ya’ll a good night!  To my bro’s still working, keep up the drive!

For my first LD, I knew I needed something special.

Carbs, and three beautifully stacked ones with a side of bacon, eggs, and toast.  There were some potatoes in there but they’re filler.

I of course, am talking about Bons.

So ode to the breakfast we eat, and may it be hearty, and perhaps after 2pm…
