At long last, my /compo entry “Chris and Roddy” is done and submitted! I must have spent 45 minutes just trying to figure out how to do that though.


I hope the Stencyl Source I submitted is good enough. I’m sure I could redo it if I did it wrong.

Roddy's World

Gameplay? What’s that?

So! More than 24 hours into LD#30 and I’ve come to realize that even with the work I’ve done, I have some really lovely sprites and some usable tilesets, I have a pretty firm grasp of my game concept, but I still haven’t nailed down the game mechanics. You know, the things you do that are actually gameplay.

At this point I’m starting to doubt I’ll have anything to submit by the deadline aside from a walk-around-a-room simulator. 😀

Something is better than nothing!

So I spent all evening working on my project, and for the most part it was a mix of brainstorming session and sprite creation. While I didn’t accomplish anything that actually resembles part of a game yet, I’m pretty sure I know where I’m going with this tomorrow.

For now, here’s Chris and Roddy, the protagonists of this project, whatever it might be called.

Chris and Roddy, unlikely allies.

Whew. Well, this thing’s about to start, and I’m all pumped up. I’ve never done this before, but I have some really fun ideas for the top themes… though I hope it’s Connected Worlds. That’s my favorite from the list, and from the previous voting results, was generally other folks’ favorite as well. I did come up with some short sentence concepts for the other themes just in case.

I’m gonna pull out Unity for this and develop for Web. If all goes well, hopefully I’ll have something to actually submit on time! If not, I’ll finish it anyway.
