Think this’ll be my 5th time
Previously worked for TPLD and Two Monocle Games.
It’s a first for me, submitted before the deadline
Not much you can do with a theme like minimalism (still can’t believe that THAT won 0_o), rather than art I went with the decoring/lifestyle take on it:
Start with too much stuff, work to have less stuff…MINIMALISM!!
Though admitadly the theme did lend itself well to a quick project. It’s definately my most complete submission yet.
Well, looking forward to the judging.
After a little sleep I managed to fix a few things that were twisting my brain in knots the night before
Polished up the gameplay a bit, squashed bugs, added features AND improved performance (oh yeah, I’m the whole package baby )
Added new instructions image thingy to be a Yoda to your Luke:
Might have a publically playable version done before the deadline even :3
Whelp, 18 hours in and I’ve got most of the basic gameplay done:
Polished up the graphics a bit, gave the character a few poses, added a tiltle screen, stuff like that.
Still to do: Game over/completion stuffs, sex up the UI, add music, do a bit of world building – “Who is this man? Why is he happy that you are destroying his blocks?”.
I’d like to add some more features to the gameplay too… just not sure what :S
12 hours in and I’ve got something:
The aim is to remove as many blocks as possible while still supporting the little guy. Hopefully I’ll have plenty of time to add in some cool features (not too many though, it is suppost to minimalistic).
Right, after staying up for the theme (Minimalism… really!?!? Bleargh!), and grabbing a few hours of sleep I’m about ready to start.
Got a few ideas, nothing very good but I think I know what I’m going with.
Time to start coding.
Wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to make it this time, but it’s looking like I shoud be on for my 4th LD!
Language: Actionscript 3
IDE/Tools: FlashDevelop, Notepad++, Paint.NET, Inkscape, Bfxr and Musagi (if there’s time…which there never is :S )
Powered by: Coffee and snacks
Finally got something new to show. There’s been constant work on AI, actions, equipment etc but none of that translates well to screenshots, but finally got the basics of those done and added a bit to the UI
Still got a looooot of stuffs I want to get in there before the end like story intro, sounds, proper level generato and hopefully have time to add more content.
After a couple of hours sleep to recharge and mull over ideas things are still moving at a decent pace
Pretty much 0 noticible difference between 6hr and 12hr screenshots but there’s plenty ‘under the hood’
Camera controls and basic pathfinding are in and I have a name/title screen!
Next up is the basic AI and player controls, then story and then content, content, polish, polish!!!
First update and screeny:
Just a quick glance at the front page of posts tells me that quite a few people had similar ideas though :S
Well, regardless, I’m pretty happy with my idea and hopefully the story/setup and game mechanics are enough to hold it’s own
