First, I started plotting lines for ninja rope action. Here, they are doing collision detection and attaching to the scenery.

SUCCESS! Physics is actually working kind of well.

Ninja stars. They cut ninja ropes.

First level started. Also action shot of swinging + rope getting cut.


The last stretch will be finishing up the first level (at least) which means one more city-scape background, a moon layer, and a bunch of platforms to go platforming and ninja roping off of. I should also make some evil ninja sprites to throw the stars. That would be fun! If I’m lucky, I might be able to do a second level theme… Music and sound effects are also on the list.

Play It

The game can be played online in its current state! Give it a go:

Welp, I made a thing. (Thank goodness!)

This is what I had after the initial 4 hours. A functional platformer, lacking any sort of level content or “things to do”.

Then I decided to start juicing it early. Here is the result as of now, 6 hours into my first LD48:

Desaturation, noise filter, fake bloom, and speed shadows. (Love me some speed shadows!)

It looks pretty good in motion, too. And when Tweening the noise filter into full effect, it gives a nice static/analogue video look.

A good first day. I’m looking forward to starting early tomorrow! And see what else comes about with this little project. :)

Don’t forget to check out my live stream: http://www.twitch.tv/kodewerx It will be going all weekend.


My assertion: I’m in!

Assuming I can get my live streaming setup working on OSX, I should start streaming around 6:00pm PST Friday. I don’t know yet what kind of game I’m building, but I will be using:

This will be my first LD48, and my first live-stream event. It promises to be full of hilarity!
