Before the fire it was just a place.

Not really happy with the artstyle, but it’s something. Maybe.

Finished …barely

I had to fix some largeish bugs after the deadline, but overall the game content was done in time. I really like the intensity of these “barely finished” -situations, but I certainly could’ve done with more time over the weekend.

I’m really happy about my entry and hope people don’t find it too frustrating to play! :) Probably going to make something larger out of this, I have lots of ideas…

The music was made my Cotton, thanks a lot!

I think I know now where to take this. Unfortunately I wont make it in time for the compo. Good thing there’s the jam, eh?

More progress!

Yay! Making this took about 10 hours. I hate how late I tend to get ideas.

Check the game out here!

As seems to have become rather common for me, it took me a very long time to settle on an idea. However, things are looking fairly good right now and I’m pretty sure I’ll manage to make something working in time. Hopefully it’ll even be flash compatible!

I’m officially in

-side my apartment. The theme is pretty neutral, hopefully some kind of inspiration will strike. Have fun, people!

I quite honestly wont have time to participate, but I think I’ll cook something up before or after the compo and submit it to the jam or something in the spirit of the Dare! If only had it been a week later…

As it turns out, my mouse took and broke this weekend. I got a new one but alas, my original game idea is too large to be implemented in such a short time! Therefore, instead of trying to create some pathetic entry, I’ll work on another game I’ve been neglecting due to stuff – Environmental station alpha! Pardon my rudeness but there were greater forces at play here.

I will direly need a new mouse before the compo begins. Totally going to turn around my miserable failure from last time!

Ashamed of myself!

Yes! I finished nothing!! For neither compo or the jam.

However, I have an old mobile phone that only accepts java apps, so today I started implementing a game to play on it. I wanted to see how far I’d get in the time limit of the last Jam day. Here’s what I got:

Things To Notice:

– A totally legitimate Norse Viking Name Generator (Thor Thorsson!)
– Different potions with randomized effects
– Simplistic combat (really simplistic)
– Explosions, oil barrels and fire!
– Dynamically generated walls

All in all, this LD wasn’t a total disappointment from my part, I guess!
