October Challenge 2010 - More
This will be my forth attempt at an LD.
Last LD didn’t go to well for me because I attempted to learn ASM and code homebrew in a weekend….. I should have learnt a bit more before I tried to do it, but thats in the past, and I’m ready to try another LD.
My tools this are:
Text editor: Nano + Textedit + Unitron
IDE: Xcode (I’m likely to stick to using the command line, Xcode 4 is a bit to intensive of an app sometimes. So I’m likely to build with “xcodebuild” instead of using the IDE for it.)
Image editor: Pixelmator + Pixen
Sound: Garage band + cfxr
(Vote for kittens!)
I’ve been working on my vectrex game, and I’ve encountered a lot of issues.
The two main bugs I’ve encountered are the input and the output………
The issues with the input is that it does not accept it at all, totally not sure why but I’m working on it. The issues with output is that the whole way of drawing is confusing. It sometimes works, sometimes doesn’t.
I’m going to Northern Ireland today, so I will be able to work on it without the distraction of the internet, I know of an internet cafe in the area I’m going to, so I will upload my game there if I’m done.

This will be my third LD
I’m going to write a homebrew game for the vectrex, something I’ve wanted to do for a while.
I’m going to use:
Text Editor: Notepad++
I’m ready to battle time its self again for the second time.
My tools will:
Code: Xcode 4(IDE) and Openframeworks(Library).
Art: Pixen and Pixelmator.
Sound: CFXR and GarageBand.
I’l most likely end up making an arcade shooter like game, because thats what I do best.
So usual stuff for me, Openframeworks, Pixen, CFXR. So not much to say about that. Not sure if i’l finish, I’ve never done well in these Mini LDs. I kinda have an idea already so thats good.
I finished my first level… It took me a day and a half, and I’m hoping to be able to do it twice in 9 hours, with much more complex stuff….. I’ve done all the graphics I’l need, got some sounds and an epic first battle/level. I also have a idea for an ending, which… well. Its an amazing ending lets just say.
You get to kill it now.
I’m added collisions now, so you can take down the big ship of doom! It won’t shoot back at you yet but I want that to be added by the end of today. The tomorrow I can added more battles. I need to make some music/sound but I’l do that last minute. You have to ‘discover’ where to hit the big ships.
I’m now making an arcade shoot ‘em up, the only type of game I can make…
You play a ship an shoot big monsters. Anyway its called “PAINLESS”, its all black and white, I’m using the apple ][ font for text.
So far you can shoot and move around. The plot makes it fit the theme….
Oh also live stream http://www.ustream.tv/channel/attempting-to-make-a-indie-games
I’m started working on a game were you walk in a mine and try to “discover” gold. Its going to be randomly generated. I’ve drawn most of the art’ll need. I need to get the generating thingy working.
