And i’m going to submit this time, damnit.

Probably will go either Unity or Love2d (my usual go to). Not sure.

I’m in for the solo compo. Don’t really like the theme though, but screw it, lets do this.

Day one over… not very far.

Simple mechanics working though: Physics, collecting fish, and shooting enemies:

Alright, I’m in. Took me a while to make up my mind, but I’ve got an idea for the theme I like.

You have to fly a helicopter and poach fish at the same time. Don’t worry it will make sense.


– Love2D
– Sublimetext
– sfxr
– Whatever painting programs I can find

I’m way behind already, but whatever 😀

Initial ideas

I wasted 12 hours sleeping, which I badly needed. I also watched 4 hours of star trek which I didn’t need.

Anyway, I’m starting now. I have an idea for a game which I like, but I think I want to make it multiplayer, which I’ve never done before.

Im thinking I’ll write a master server in python and the game client in Love2D/Lua

Im in… sorta!

I’m in, but sadly I don’t have the time and energy this weekend to commit myself to a full submission; however I love this contest and community so I can’t say no! I will probably do something experimental like learn a new framework or set of technologies that I haven’t used before.

Good luck everyone

I’m in!

Guys, I haven’t touched game coding in months.  So I’m kind of scared.  How do you do circle collision again?

But, I have some moral support from some friends who are entering along with me, so lets KICK SOME ASS


  • OSX
  • Love2D
  • SublimeText w/ vim
  • Something that draws stuff, Seashore I guess, or GIMP if I can figure out how to use it
  • Tiled
  • SFXR
  • Ableton Live
  • Coffee

This community is amazing.  Best of luck to all, and have fun!

Halfway point…and I’m actually pretty happy with where I’m at so far.  The following components are finished:

  • Area loading system
  • Rendering code
  • Collision code
  • Player/Enemy animation
  • UI

Major pieces left…

  • Area transition system
  • Gene mutation system
  • Finish area sprites
  • Build areas
  • Sound effects & Music
  • Text & Story elements
  • A few bugs

Game looking like this so far!

Good luck everyone!! YOU CAN FINISH

Just spent like 3 hours trying to implement pathfinding.  It sort of works, but still has some bugs.  At least the hard part of that is over.

Game looking like this at the moment:
