Procrastupdate

That’s uh… procrastination + update…

Good progress has been made. I’ve got my character to a playable state, just missing the bits and bops. An enemy is almost done, and his devilish little friends are being… devilish.

I feel almost bad for going with cel-shading, it seems rather a cheapout, but it looks splendid and I can mass produce textures in no time at all.

All-in-all a productive start with a bright future ahead.

For whatever reason, this entire post is being read in the sound of Tom Baker’s voice in my head… not a clue why… maybe I’m just tired.

Deskshot!

I heard you people like food... this Razz Pom Sorbet is delicious.

Oh right, I’m in.

Got home at 6 and went right into it, I decided to keep working rather than post anything.

This’ll be my 4th LD, I was here for 19, 20 and 22… I don’t remember why I didn’t do 21.

Nevertheless my tools are as follows:

– Unity 3D (As always, but actually going to make a 3D game this time.)

– Photoshop

– sfxr

– Fruity Loops Lite (I seriously doubt I’ll be able to get anything decent out of it… as per the usual)

– Sigur Ros Discography (cuz that’s how I works yo)

Best of luck to all of you, and remember “It’s not the destination, but the journey that matters.” does not apply in this situation… at all…

What I See

Oh man, I’m off work!

Been working all week, did not get an “I’m in!” video. Oh well. I am, in reality, in.

I missed last time, but I got the weekend off and I am set… cept my main comp is wrecked, so I’m building this on my laptop. Which is what I did the first time… so again, oh well.

I shall once again be using Unity.

Along with that I’ll be using:

– Photoshop

– Frootyloops… I don’t know why I bother, but maybe I’ll get something out of it.

– Notepad and stuff

EZSprite… I’m linking just to show it’s a thing, and as for the rules, I’m pretty sure  it fits… /shrug

I don’t want to show a pic of my work area cuz it’s embarrassingly messy. Instead, I’m putting a picture of ME… with an Empire temp tattoo.

With or without…

The helmet?

Safety is very important while rolling around in a Space Hamster Head Allterain Ball, SHAB (Just came up with that.)

if (Allys == 0)

{

Danger++;

Take(this);

}

Cuz I want to have a joke like that in every one of these posts.

But no show… well there is a show, just don’t want to show it yet.

You’ll understand later.

Danger…

Taking a break and working on art…. Who would ruin a perfectly good sign, certainly not someone so cute… certainly.

Also, hope to eventually fill the hamster ball with something… yet to decide what.

Of KD and Mr. Noodles… Mmmmmm

Also pondering on how many Zelda rips there are going to be.

It’s dangerous to go alone! Take 150 Zelda ripoffs!

It’s Dangerous…

They watch you...

Creepy? Cute? W/E

Movement is in, as are these little fellas who just can’t seem to live without you.

Spoiler* You aren’t alone.

Aaaaaaand, here it is. Not as interesting as I would have hoped. But w/e.

LD48 DiSub

Looking forward to playing everyone’s game, already seen some really interesting projects.

A lot of people have done proc generators, I guess it makes sense. With such little time it’s a great way to extend your world. Gotta say though, as good as the proc is, I’m really loving the level design in some of these games. You should all check out http://bit.ly/gyyhsz. A classic indie game with a bit of a metroid undertone, all wrapped up in some top Notch (*cough*) level design. Not just saying that cuz I know him irl.

Plus go ahead and vote on mine: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-19/?action=rate&uid=3202

Make sure to leave plenty of comments, I plan to continue developing this game so absolutely EVERY type of feedback is welcome. Tell me what you had for dinner and I’ll find out what people who eat that like in video games.

Going to try to play everyone’s game within the time limit, but there is a good chance that I may miss a few. So please link me your game in the comments and there is a 100% chance I’ll play it, vote on it and give it some of my humble feedback. Promote yourself!

All Done

Welp, LD48 is over… probably by the time I’m done this post.

It was my first one and will definitely not be my last.

In the end there was still a lot I wish I could add. I’ll most likely keep working on it and hopefully release a bigger, better, and less buggy game.

I’m not sure how this works but if you want to check it out goto: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-19/?action=preview&uid=3202

Will be putting up a timelapse later.

Movement Changed

As the title eludes to, I changed the movement. Mouse controls were getting bluh.

Also I realized I am not keeping legacy builds on dropbox so all my old links are either going to be broken or lead to the latest build… I don’t know, haven’t checked.

Either way, for anyone who is checking posts, here’s my update: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/12926434/WebPlayer/WebPlayer.html

Didn’t have a cable to post my workspace before. Here it is.

Not working at home is less fun.

Finally gave up on pixel art, it was never gonna happen. That was not a kitten.

Not much on the tech side has been updated, can’t remember what was in the previous build. The sounds are working and there are collectibles as well as points. currently trying to get the sub to face where it is going to no avail. I think I’ll put that on the burner for the moment and implement the enemies.

Check out… it: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/12926434/WebPlayer/WebPlayer.html

Day 2ish Update

Posted by
Saturday, December 18th, 2010 8:46 am

Just got up. Managed to generate me some random blips and dings that I shall label as sound effects. The core gameplay is nearly complete. One feature is still not functional… i.e. the sensor that will tell you if you are close to treasure. It’s a player feedback thing so if it doesn’t get in there will be some annoyed players.

Check it out here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/12926434/WebPlayer/WebPlayer.html

My plans:

– eat something

– try and fix this sensor

– add some simple enemies

– figure out if I’m going to have ramping difficulty

– draw stuff

– make a kickass loop track

I think I’ll have scrambled eggs.
