I’m in

Been absent from a few challenges since the last time I entered, plan to give it my all though.

Engine: Construct 2

Graphics: Krita/GraphicsGale Audio: bfxr

I’m in

Another LD I find out about hours prior to the start of the competition. Will most likely shoot for a jam entry from the get-go since I currently work most Saturdays.

Going to keep my options open for what engine/tools I’m going to use, but I’ll post more once the contest is going. Here’s hoping I get a complete entry together this time around.

I’m in.

Been a while since I participated, so glad to not miss out on it this time around. I think it’ll be my fourth time. My intent (yet again) will be going solo for the compo, but I like to keep plans loose for at least until I actually hear what the theme is going to be.

Language: Javascript

Library: Phaser

Editor: Sublime

(the rest I’ll leave as TBD, as in I’ll post whatever other utilities/apps I use as I catch myself using them)

I’m in

Joining this last minute. Not sure what I am using (like to keep my options open at this phase), but I will fill you in as soon as I can figure out myself what I want to make.

Alright, time for me to get to work.

I was just about to regret up-voting this theme, but now I’m totally psyched about it.

Since my last entry was so offbeat, I am going to go for an all-too-familiar tower defense type game this time around.

Are you asking yourself right now if it will be jam-packed with trigonometry? You better believe it is! (I am assuming everyone who voted this theme specifically is as big a fan of it as I am)

I’m (also) in.

Intended to be in for a long while, but I didn’t realize it was happening this weekend until about 4 hours before it starts.

This is going to be my second go at LD, and regardless of the short notice, I feel pretty ready for it.

Well, given my pre LD predictions and given that this is not just my first LD, but really my first time ever seeing a game made from concept to completion, I consider what I’ve done with the past two days a fine success.

The only issue I really had with everything was that because I came up with a simple to implement idea very quickly from the start, I assumed I would have ample time to pump the game full of polish and throw in some variety (or at least an sfx or two). The problem with that was half to almost all of the first day was spent getting the map generation stuff up and running, a lot of which was stuff I took for granted. Stuff which probably wouldn’t have even been considered cheating if I had generically set it up beforehand.

you would think the image title and the image caption fields would be enough. They claim a picture is worth a thousand words, but NO! we need THREE DIFFERENT THINGS to type text into to go alongside it!

Out of all the games entered with the name "The Cheese Stands Alone", this one is the best. I haven't played any of the other ones, but I know they are there, and it is safe to assume that this game is better than them.

You should go check it out!

I already got a laundry list of stuff I want to implement to extend the game’s and it’s difficulty: (although a lot of it is mainly cosmetic)

  • Limit total # of total moves allowed by stage(included with this would be to possibility separate the # of blocks you are allowed to add from the # of blocks you are allowed to remove from a stage)
  • variable stage sizes
  • A more graphical HUD, with cool buttons and everything
  • a victory notification before going to the next stage (who wouldn’t like a little fanfare?)
  • more levels, difficult ones if at all possible (suggestions are very much welcome, puzzles are not my forte)
  • level select (this feature can only be warranted  through the preceding bullet point though)
  • once I get a better ‘feel’ for how the game operates, maybe extend the predatory chain further, or possibly throw in some auxiliary items (e.g. dog bones, cattails, etc)

Update: I need sleep

Sunday, December 18th, 2011 2:08 am

I don’t know if I am just naturally terrible at making puzzles, or if it’s the sleep deprivation.

Good thing I’m only making tutorial stages tonight, and thus are better off being stupidly obvious.

Just posting this update to let myself know that if I have any hope of making my game fun, I’m going to have to get some sleep.

(I just pray I’m not putting off more than I can chew within the final 8 hours. I better go set my alarm clock…)

A day has gone by, here is where I am

I can tell I am behind, but I feel like I’m doing reasonably well for my first time. I’m probably going to be up pretty late tonight putting in all the functionality I need and debugging it all. (I haven’t even touched the menu code, or the player input code!) Spent most of my time setting up the tile engine and adding stuff to the screen through xml. It’s all build-up so I can put in multiple levels easily and quickly, but I’ve only just gotten into the real meat and potatoes of the engine within the past couple of hours.

 

This idea was supposed to be simple, so I am rather upset about not already having most of it mostly done by now.

things are on the screen, hooray me

Here's a screen

Things I need to do tomorrow will be to first and foremost replace the filler graphics (courtesy of too much time spent with MSPaint). Focusing almost all the rest of my time on putting in as many levels as I can have time to think up, along with adding in some sounds. Since this is going to be a puzzle game, I would fell remiss if I didn’t try sequencing up a little fanfare tune for winning a stage, before I finally submit.

My initial thoughts after hearing the theme

Friday, December 16th, 2011 8:25 pm

Dog chases kitty, kitty chases mouse, mouse lives to eat cheese

What does this have to do with anything? Well I’m not 100% on how this will all go down, but I think I should go full throttle with the idea since the first thing I came up with was the win condition, and I’m guessing that’s a good sign.

So how do you win? You do not win.

 

Not until the cheese stands alone.

As of right now, I’m in.

This is my first time doing something like this, despite how long I’ve always known I’ve wanted to. Getting something done, and actually enjoying the time spent are my goals here.

My weapons of choice:

Editor/Library: FlashDevelop/Flashpunk

Graphics: Gimp/old buggy wacom

Audio:  sfxr

Wish I could add music of some kind, but it’s not really my bag.
