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 :D 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

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

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 :D 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!

Calling it a day

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

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 :P 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 :D + I couldn’t really concentrate. what means it calls for revenge

I hope you play my game! And have fun doing so! :D Shameless adding of a link ;) :

Play it here

finishing up!

game is nearly done! amazing how far one can gat with a super simple gameplay o.O. As for sounds, I know how important those are, but I don’t have the power or nerve anymore for Garageband :D. For those who are wondering afterwards (and/or are reading this post), I’m just beatboxing into a microphone ^^
