LD25 over for me

Well, I spent a vast majority of awake hours this weekend on my entry, and its now done, and submitted. Its my first LD, and I have really enjoyed working on a personal project so hard and using such a high percentage of my time on it, although frankly I doubt I could keep it up much longer (and not just because the GF would murder me).

I am glad I decided early on not to stress about art, or other things that always derail this kind of personal project for me as it allowed me to get a lot further than I normally would, and actually create something resembling an incredibly basic simulation game, which was my intent.

I also noted that the overall quality of my code rapidly hit shocking when the true ramifications of having such a tight time frame hit me, I wont say I’m ashamed of my code, but its not far off…

And in summation, great times had by all.

First LD initial thoughts.

Well, its my first LD and I have to say, despite what I feel is a very unambitious project, things are going far slower than I would like. On the plus, deciding early not to worry about my artwork looking like something you step in on the street has saved me a lot of hassle trying to be better at something I am utterly terrible at.

 

Also who does not love villains with top hats, its got to be a thing!
