You are a brain

My game idea is that you are a brain, and you manage to get into some ooze in order to move around faster. If you take damage, the ooze flies off of you and eventually you have no more ooze, back to brain form. You can find the ooze gibs laying around and get back to ooze form though. Going to make a few more variations for what the brain can enter (vehicles). That’s my “shapeshifting” piece, I hope the voters approve 😉


Let’s do this!

I’m finally confident enough to produce a game quickly! I don’t think I’ll do the 48 hour, but the longer jam! Free time still hard to come by…


GLHF to all, and to all a good theme slaughter.

Background, a couple sprites.

Took me all night to figure out how to make a background tile! But then I added a castle and a crosshair.

My idea is kind of simple, you are a villain inside the castle, and you have to shoot missiles at the incoming bad..er..good guys and stop them from getting into your castle. I want to add different powerups, enemy types, and that should take me the next 22 hours… hahaha… we’ll see!


No way

I only just started trying to work, and there is no way I will finish in time for the compo, probably not even the jam. Still trying to learn the basics as it is, but I’ll try to have something!!

Surprised at the theme!

A bit late, but I’ll post anyway!

I was always the villain…

When we were growing up, I always got to be the villain, the bad guy, the fall guy, or player 2.
I was cool with it, I was not nearly as clever as my friend, who always played the good guy.
I was surprised to see “The end of the world” not make the cut. However, “You are the villain” is a cool idea. I can’t quite think of anything just yet. I’m jotting down ideas. Then I work a double tomorrow, so there won’t be much time for dev. Hopefully Sunday is task free for me.

I’m In!

I’m going to be in, but for the jam not the compo. I just don’t have the skill to finish a game, since I can hardly figure out how to make a pixel move across the screen. However, I will do my best!!!

I’m going to be using FlashDevelop, FlashPunk, Paint.Net, Gimp2, Ogmo Editor, SFXR.


Stumbling along

Here is a screen of my first bit of progress. Not much, but I’m fresh meat! Not entirely sure I know where I’m going yet either! JOY!

Total noob alert!

Hey I just joined, I figure it would help me learn a lot! I’m beginning to grasp C#, via tutorials and such. Unity 3D is the engine I will use… Giants surround me, may I clamber up your shoulders?
