Just woke up (8 o’ clock here in Germany), got an idea, and am ready to go!

I’ll be using Flash + Starling, Paint.NET, and Red Bull to stay awake, I guess 😀

Have fun and good luck everyone!

Deadly Roads: gamejolt quick stats

I’m happy to say that my LD game Deadly Roads has reached 1000 views and 500 plays on GameJolt (yayyyyy *doing a little dance*)

I’m also not at the point yet where I want to write a post-mortem, because I’m currently working on a post-compo version of the game. For over a week now, I’ve been reducing draw calls, optimizing scripts and modifying many thingies so that it runs smooth on a mobile device. As a little hint to fellow Unity devs: optimizing for Android stinks 😀 Make gameobject pools right from the beginning

Here’s a sneak preview of my post-compo 😉

Entered my game earlier than expected, and what’s really strange is that my game is hardby 1 MB 😀 Unity? No joke, it’s 697 KB

So to everyone who’s still coding: Good luck, keep going, and if you have the time, smell the unicorn farts in my game 😉

No joke, I have farting unicorns 😀

Zoom In 1 Word has officially finished the October Challenge 2014 successfully!

As you can see in the image, this months totals has exceeded 1 USD! Yayyy! And it ‘only’ took 20 days :v

On a side note: iAds suck 😀 I made two other games in the meantime, selling them for $0.99 each, and both made more than this game already 😉

If you wanna check it out, it’s available in the Apple App Store (iPad & iPhone), and it’s free. For more info, see my October challenge entry http://ludumdare.com/compo/october-challenge-2014/?action=preview&uid=717

Now just a few more months and I can finally buy a hotdog with my money! 😀

Now since I tried playing around with perspective a bit, I’ve got to say: kudos to USTWO . this isn’t easy, this stuff REALLY isn’t easy o.O

Screenshot02or maybe I just suck at Unity 😀 the code is a mess

I’m done!

Feeling like crap, but not because the game is crap (not that great, but also not crap IMO), but because I somehow managed to get sick. Yay. Not. Will post a post-mortem later, but for now, it’s time to go to bed early

Have fun everyone!

Tired. Unity …. annoying … MonoDevelop crashing …. had bugs … don’t use Animators with Rigidbody2D when you want to animate the whole GameObject…

Time for the first Red Bull of the weekend! 😉 And lunch time

Also, here’s a photo of my current process. I’m drawing a lot, and probably will do it like I did last time in LD27: day 1, graphics and idea, day 2 programming and polish :)


Time to Start!

Mr. Sushi! Post-Mortem

Posted by (twitter: @pythong)
Wednesday, August 28th, 2013 11:21 am

Not for fame, not for glory, I’m here for the fun! I love LDs, because almost every time after the submission I can say to myself: I still got it ^^


So this is my entry: Mr. Sushi! (Order Please!). I was stuck on the first day, because I haven’t really been programming for weeks, and as I wanted to move forward as a Flash Developer, I decided that this LD would not be about pixels, blitting and copypixels, but about Stage3D! A step that I didn’t take for way too long


What went well:

1) hahaha, I didn’t have the time to create music :D. On a whim I decided to do some voice acting with broken japanese-english like Matt Stone or Trey Parker always do on South Park :D. Broken and so bad, that you should know that no japanese actually talks like that ^^. And tell you what: It’s really fun to talk like that :D. That’s why the south park guys always do it^^!

2) Starling with Starling! I’m still not 100% convinced if it really runs faster, because on startup I get framerates of 30 or less. maybe I would have to build preloaders again 😛 But! I managed to create something that actually works

3) I created a new game! The game idea derived from dots (iOS), but I don’t like how the items fall down like in Bejuweluizzoausoi*censored*ioasd ^^. But there’s still room for improvements 😉


What didn’t went that well:

MY ASSHOLE BUDDY SET UP LIKE 10 ALARMS AT RANDOM TIMES AND HID THEM AT RANDOM PLACES IN MY WORKPLACE 😀 + I couldn’t really concentrate. what means it calls for revenge

I hope you play my game! And have fun doing so! 😀 Shameless adding of a link 😉 :
