Lol, so, while the deadline’s already over, since I finally have downtime after moving my stuff to my dorm room, I’ll finally be able to game jam, even though it won’t count for the jam, lol…

I couldn’t do it :(

Final projects came in and blew my face off :( I don’t think I was destined to do even numbered Ludum Dare’s

I’m in… to do class projects! :D

So, my final project for a class is to create a game prototype. Of course, that means I’m in. Plus I have the added desire of making it my final project for a class? Added motivation right there.

This time around, I’ll be messing around with either Unity or pure html5, javascript, and css3.

NO MORE GAMEMAKER STUFF FROM ME 😛 (at least for awhile)

And, no, I’m not procrastinating. 😀

 

Post Morten: In Just a Moment

So, this is my game.

Anyways, for my second Ludum Dare,  I decided to do something most peculiar.

This was actually the first thing that popped in my head when I was at my Optometrist when my eyes were dilated early Saturday morning.

So, what was my game?

When I heard the theme, I had two ideas. One of them was a horror game where you blink every ten seconds and stuff happens but I meant it as something I wouldn’t like making.

So, what ideas popped in my head, based on the theme, when I was coming up with “In Just a Moment”? Well, contrary to the comments, I thought of “YOLO”. Like, I think of a lot of things before I make any decision. A lot of those thoughts being negative.

If  I were to talk to someone, I’m always self-conscious about how I present myself as I assume these bad things. But seriously, what can go wrong?  That was the question I wanted to present when I was making this game. “What can go wrong with a choice?”

Granted, the way I did it needs loads of improvements but did it I tried to do.

What went good:

  • I finished a game despite having my hands full with moving into college and what not.
  • I made the game to the exact idea that was in my head.
  • I didn’t have any headaches at any point in making the game.
  • The music in the game fit what I was going for perfectly

 

What went bad:

  • My message wasn’t presented clearly.
  • The music loop thing.
  • I relied a bit too much on “Show, don’t Tell”
  • How the game ended. It seems that just ending the game without the player deciding to stop playing affected the idea I had for what I wanted to do.

 

I liked working on “In Just a Moment” and am still working to make it better than what I already made. Just, I need to learn how to present my idea.

I love the comments I’m getting, how people think of the game as an examination on relationships and life but that idea’s way more advanced than how I originally imagined the game.

 

Let’s compare it to my first Ludum Dare game, Princess Sheltering.

This was definitely a better organized game than my LD 25 and was a lot easier to make in terms of the idea that I came up with. To be honest, compared to Princess Sheltering, this is something I’d still play, even though “In Just a Moment” is so short. It was also awesome that I had someone come by and make music for my game! So this Ludum Dare was just so much easier than my last Ludum Dare.

Roughly 7 hours? Only half my game done? More than enough time :P

Wow, I’m so lucky I decided on an easy game to make. I’ve been doing a bunch of stuff besides my game but I’m more than enough done with my game that I can easily finish this in 6 hours. 😛

Well, I’m starting now :P

Because I had to do some packing for college, I wasn’t able to immediately start my game for the jam. Regardless, I was aiming for the jam period anyway, so yeah!

Woah, I can’t believe I got something down XD

So, for my first jam, I actually got it done XD.

Well, there are still A LOT of things I want to put into my game, like a scoreboard (a custom one), or additional flashiness but I’m content XD

 

Great job to all those that finished XD.

Soooooo, I’ve been getting stuck in my code and I’ve been doing a lot of things… I still plan to present something, just, I don’t expect to finish it in the next 20 hours… It is finals week at my college XD Oh well, I’ll get it done…

test

 

Btw, I never talked about my lil impromptu idea XD

Basically, it’s repunzel but you drop stuff on the poor lil knights that try to rescue her.

I’m realizing that I could do better with the art stuff :O
