2.5Dino Arena

This was my first Ludum Dare. I ended up working by myself… and actually the main reason I am even doing this is to find collaborators. I did all the pixel art from scratch and would very much like some feedback because I am kind of new at it. At first I didn’t really like the theme, but once I brainstormed some classic single screen games I had enjoyed in the past (SmashTV), I realized it wouldn’t be so bad. I had some grand plans of dinosaurs, jetpacks, and rocket launchers, and I am glad at least 2 of those made this version. I wanted to do a lot more, but that was probably my noobishness. I love making chiptunes/erocktronic music, but I didn’t have time. I was trying to make it so people could make maps using Tiled Map Editor, or at least load multiple maps during gameplay, but no time. The one thing I did right was to use some of my old Unity Scripts and enter the jam instead of the compo… maybe compo next time. I will add more dinos, weapons, maps, and block types, and some music.

Here is my entry:

Not too much progress today, but hopefully tomorrow can work on enemies and some combat! Im hoping there will be jetpacks, rocket launchers, and dinosaurs flying off the map by the time I’m done.

Started out making a grass texture

This is my first Ludum Dare, so I thought I would just do the jam rather than stress out and end up not doing it at all.

My friend will be helping me, and I will be using some scripts I wrote for unity last year for the base (renderer, map parser, that ok?), so hopefully I will have plenty of time to get some gameplay done. I had a few sprites I was using for the base, but I will do them all from scratch, because I want my pixeling judged. I also make sort of chiptunes music, but a bit more beat rock… Im calling it erocktronic. I might do tracks from scratch if there is time, but maybe just use some of my existing tracks and opt out of that category.

I will be using:

– Unity

– Tiled Map Editor

– Cosmigo Pro Motion, Pyxel Edit, Sprite Anything (iOS)

– Sublime Text 3

– BFXR or maybe record sound effects

 

I will try to stream, but if it makes me uncomfortable or slows me down too much,

I will just record it and upload it later.
