been posting these on my blog while Compo was down, so here are a few updates crammed into one post.

These nefarious henchmen are out to get ES CAPÉ and will do all in their power to stand there and watch you go by. Nothing fancier than the spikes that have also been implemented, just allows to tell the story of ES CAPÉ a little better!

can’t see many new things, other than water, but progressing through levels works, you can die, etc. so yeah. just making all the levels now.

This LD I’m making my game with C++/SDL etc. for the first time forever, so the going’s slow. Been too busy learning stuff to write the 10 posts I’d have usually made by now! Huge bro-thanks to NGuillemot who basically sacrificed his hole first day of LD to help me out a lot. Anyways, here’s what’s going on so far:

The movement is entirely tile-based, “collisions” work fine and the code reads the levels off of .txts! been having tons of fun and it’s looking like this game might actually be fun despite being a complete beginner’s attempt thingy bobber. anyways off to bed and whatnot

The list gets longer!

My body is ready Ludum Dare, my body is SO READY.

My weapons of CHOICE:

  • Codeblocks (C++) –>  FOR ALL PROGRAMMING NEEDS
  • The GIMP –> FOR THOSE FANCY ART THINGS
  • Food –> FOR MY BODY
  • My music stuff –> for music stuff 
  • SFXR –> for the short music stuff
So yeah I’m ditching GameMaker this time around, so don’t expect anything too fancy from me. Probably just a puzzle game or something, since I haven’t actually made anything significant yet with the aforementioned programming weapon of choice.
And now I will post a picture of a bunny and a kitten, because that’s how we roll here at Ludum Dare

Going up!

Not sure if I’m going to bother actually starting this game, but here’s the concept nonetheless

Title:
In case of emergency use stairs

Desc:
You are aware of the presence of cake on the main floor; get there ASAP via the closest elevator and let none get in your path.

Mockup:

As you head down in the elevator, others will try to hitch a ride. you will then need to use a combo of your abilities (open doors, close doors, emergency telephone, Lobby button) as well as changing the indication of which direction your capsule is moving in. every time someone is let in, they will select a floor they want to go to. The floor they wish to get to will be incremental (first duder wants the lobby, second duder wants the 1st floor, etc.). When you arrive at a floor someone wants to get off at you will be forced to stop, slowing you down and making it easy for others to get on. The game ends when either you get to the lobby or your elevator is forced to move upwards (because the last selected floor is higher than your current height). Yeah.

Done when:
The game is done when there are atleast 50 floors, randomly interspersed, and everything mentioned above is included. There will also be a menu and a menu theme and a song for the game itself, aswell as some encouraging vocal stuff when you pull off good combos. There will also be a score meter, giving you more scores the better your combos.

 



Hey LD.

You’re awesome.

I was going to post the usual frustrated-about-voting-results post. But I let it sit there for a while and realized it was useless. I just wanted to say thanks for the great LD as usual, and thanks to everyone who commented on my game! And a really big thanks for those of you who gave me a rating for community even though the game didn’t even work for you. The comments are always my favorite part of post-compo fun and I’m thankful for those that I got.

I tried to put all the over-thinking of it and strategics away this round; I Named the game what I wanted to, not something that would show up on top just for the sake of it showing up on top. I didn’t like the theme; I threw it in the gutter and made a game I actually enjoyed. Hell, I wasted an hour making “box art”. I just had fun and I hope y’all did too. I’ll see you at the Mini-LD!

Done my Game! it’s been a while since I actually uploaded it, but I figured I’d blog about it.

One final Screenshot

go play it now!

warning: pretty darn unpolished. But I like to think it adds a certain charm (no game-over screen is VERY charming)

Jonah Hex combines programming and whales

There may not be Jonah Hex, or Whales, but there certainly is

  • THE KRAKEN Jr.
  • SEA-REX
  • and the LOST RHINOCEROS of ATLANTIS

they’re not actually spawned yet (I had to generate terrain for 5 minutes before they were all fully visible since I placed them manually). that’s the next step. and then I need to give you a way to confront them and put that health bar to good use. And then it’s land enemies.

Here there be monsters

Concept for the enemies I’m about to add to WHALE OF A TALE. In other news, I added treasure chests

Well that was fast. Bridges look and work pretty good. you probably wouldn’t get that many of them in an actual game unless you idled a long time. or that many mills. I’m probably going to bump up the wood prices, it all depends on how much coin you get from enemies. Anyways, time to make docks work and we’re all set for the rogue-like part!

The Mill is up and running! I might need to tweak it more to make wood more difficult to obtain. but it works, and that’s all I need right now. There are also little tooltips when you mouse over the buttons (probably should have shown that in the screenshot). You can only place mills on stone, and I made trees not spawn too close to stone. otherwise you could place the mill on the tree and get 200 wood every 5 seconds.

Next is bridges and docks. Bridges should be easy, but docks will involve a bit of reworking how they work

working on the HUD. it’s basically done now. I just need to make it work instead of just sitting there looking pretty. you have your two resources, and 3 buildables. I’m going to make this a ROGUE-LIKE RTS. WOAH. coin will be earned by killing duders I guess (duders not pictured as they do not yet exist). Coin acts as both score and resource. using coin you can build a wood mill, which will spawn a duder that goes and gets wood for you, with which you can build bridges and more docks. once the variables are set up and whatnot I’ll work on the rogue-like part.

 

A TALE of WHALE related success

I finally got landing on shore to work. I uploaded a brief video

Whale of a Tale footage

and while waiting for the video to upload I added trees and grass;

I’m STILL trying to get landing working. I’m almost there. but until then, have this picture I drew because I was frustrated with the problem at hand:

Allons-y!

I’ve run out of whale related titles, but I am back from our “super official Victoria LD meetup” with Blackduck and Zatech. and I decided to set up my computer in a different spot, which allowed me to finally set up a second monitor!

Behold: workspace photo!

So yeah. I’m still fiddling with getting off the whale. so here’s a pic of our brainstorm last night (I’ll give you a guess as to which marker was mine)

Ipods actually take really good photos. I’m impressed
