I´ll be
using {

  • Unity3D (5.4)
  • Paint.NET
  • (maybe) Blender && if (Blender) then also Substance Painter
  • Audacity && freesound.org
  • sfxr
  • if (a muse catches me) then FL Studio else ccmixter.org

Monster Sports: Eating

So I tried to participate in the LD33 jam.
What went wrong? I got sick on that weekend, could not finish.
What went well? Mostly everything until I got sick.

Well… obviously one cannot choose the time when illness hits.
But since I had to finish a game anyway for my 1GAM commitment, I finished what I had begun for LD33 and ta-da: you can find the result on my itch.io page. Enjoy!

Argh… the monster got me. It´s the cold monster, yes, a very bad cold caught me, made me suffer badly with a sore throat, headache, fever and constantly running nose. The only way to survive was to sleep long and only dream of making a great LD game…
*sob* Maybe next time…

You are the Unity3D monster!

The monster is inside u-u-unity…
But still not rigged, not animated. And then I need to model two-legged food which runs away. And assemble some nice burping sfx. And so on. Much to do.

What are you doing, you monster?

My monster is modelled so far. Still needs to be texture painted, rigged, animated, and imported to Unity3D.150822_EatMonster_BlenderScreen

(Don´t worry, it doesn´t need legs.)

Monster now eat

MonsterNowEat

Thinking of something. The player is…

  • the Beast, not Beauty,
  • Alma, not a F.E.A.R. executive,
  • the dragon, not the knight,
  • the witch, but neither Hänsel nor Grätel,
  • an orc, not Frodo,
  • Dracula, not Van Helsing,
  • the sarlacc, not Luke,
  • the zombie pirate, not Guybrush,
  • the kid burning ants with a magnifier, not an ant,
  • the ants, not a scientist,
  • the mummy, not the archeologist,
  • The Machine, not Turrican,
  • the slave driver, not the liberator,
  • a ghost, not a Ghostbuster™,
  • a ghost, not Pacman,
  • the wolf, not a sheep,
  • the A.I., not a human being.

More ideas: Frankenstein? Godzilla? King Kong? An Evolve demake? A flesh-eating plant?
Nobody loves the monster. The monster is grotesque, a creature of the night, outlawed, hidden, too big, insatiable, ugly, not something to play with.

And it waits under the bed.

LD33: eye ’em in!

Taking part in the jam which is a welcome opportunity to get my #1GAM entry for August finished.
As usual my tools rack consists of:

  • Unity3d 5.1.2f1 pro (…currently still downloading), C#
  • InkScape, Paint.NET, Gimp
  • FLStudio 11, sfxr, ccMixter.org, Freesound.org
  • Blender, Substance Painter
  • Maybe Fraps to capture a video and Audials to convert it.

What will be the result? Some delicious webbuild that will get uploaded to my itch.io site at: http://jireugi.itch.io/
Bon Appetit!

Sleep. Coffee. Food. All done. ;-)

Now work hard and fast. And good.

Just want to share a few scribbles on the conceived game concept.

Game title: MAN versus MACHINE

…aehem… still in warmup mode.

Ok. So after many moons I returned to participate in the Ludum Dare Jam once again. Soon I will finish another fine exemplary of experimental game art. Then the world will rejoice.

And afterwards I can continue finishing Watchdogs™.

Behold, oh mortals, the venue of work where my sweat will run aplenty:

sweatshop

metacozm sweatshop

BTW the chosen tools of my venture should be these:

  • Unity3D (pro 4.5) with a lot of free and commercial plugins (don´t know yet which ones of them I will use…)
  • FL Studio (I think I will install the latest version along the way… right now I have version 10 installed) and (of course) sfxr (or bfxr on Mac)
  • maybe InkScape, Paint.NET,  and theGimp
  • maybe Blender
  • maybe IcoFX
  • maybe “ArtRage” (which came along my smalll Wacom graphics tablet)
  • Fraps and/or Audials (to capture some ingame videos)
  • (usually) many (free) sound, music, graphics, and fonts assets from the vast lands of the internets (of course I will give detailed credits whenever and whereever I do so)

Let the jam commence!

(Well actually at my place it will be middle in the night when LD30 starts… 3 a. m. So I will sleep then. But don´t worry! You don´t have to wait until I´m awake. Just start on your own. I will blend in some hours later with freshly brewn coffee in my mouth.)

Done: Morph, Virus, Morph! v0.3 final

Hello, you happy people!

I decided that the game´s done for now, since I realistically won´t have time to do much more on monday evening.

You find the binaries here:
http://codemachinery.net/files/LudumDare24/MorphVirusMorph_Bin_v0.3-final.zip

And the sources here:
http://codemachinery.net/files/LudumDare24/MorphVirusMorph_Src_v0.3-final.zip

BTW: that´s the first time, I actually composed music for a game myself. In the past I always used to fetch nice CC tracks from other people. Hopefully the sound does not make your ears bleed 😀

Morph, Virus, Morph!

…and now for something totally different: me.sleep().

Happy coding & cu  next time?! 😉

Status update: “Morph, Virus, Morph!” v0.2

Posted by (twitter: @metacozm)
Saturday, August 25th, 2012 8:30 pm

Find the video of v0.2 on YouTube: http://youtu.be/-hzI1prmSVs

New stuff:

  • the player´s character (a green virus! what surprise!) is now animated.
  • the player can rotate/turn the camera left and right.
  • some red enemies rotate and wait for the player to shoot them.
  • at the far end of the level there is an exit waiting.

To do stuff:

  • Camera moves out of the level walls – ugly, must fix!
  • Enemies want to shoot player badly. Must implement this.
  • Maybe some health bar for the virus? (Do viruses in reality have … health?! Wondering….)
  • Dead enemies must drop “source code artifacts” -> for feeding the virus, so that it can evolve / mutate / grow / level up
  • Some UI for main menu etc (think I will use generic Unity-GUI – ugly, but times running out)
  • Some funny background story.
  • More levels.
  • UI for choosing the power-ups of the morphed virus.
  • Outro.
  • Now: empty the bottle of beer, then sleep a little.
