    Macgoober timebomb disposal

    Macgoober timebomb disposal

    Done with LD27.

    Unfortunately, life happened and I only had 8 hours. I reduced the scope quite a bit, but the essential elements are there.

    The game is named Macgoober.

    My  3rd go around. Using no engine, but this time I will start from my LD 26 code that I wrote from scratch in the compo.

    Tools I plan to use…

    • IntelliJ IDEA (community edition)
    • Paint.NET
    • as3sfxr

    I’ll try out some live streaming @ http://www.twitch.tv/caprockgames

    I will also post timelapse after compo.

    I just uploaded a video walkthrough of my LD26 entry ASCII 219

     

    ASCII 219 Lives!!

    Just made it in time. ASCII 219 (block cursor in ascii code) is a platform game where you play as the simple text cursor.

    Keeping with the minimalism theme, you only control the game with one button, the space bar. Play and you just may find out this little text cursor is on his journey.

    The game is written in Java using the box2d library. I’m just blitting pixels here, no engines or graphics libraries.

    I also used Paint.NET and sfxr.

    My live stream videos are here… http://www.twitch.tv/caprockgames

    And my entry is here… http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-26/?action=preview&uid=14045

    progress

     

    The game’s name is “█”. You play as a text cursor attempting to escape your dull existence. To keep with the minimalism theme, you control the cursor with just one jump button. The plan to is to have 5 levels with some kind of boss battle at the end.

    Will have a jar file uploaded of the prototype as soon as I figure out how to do it.

    Update: You can find the game here…  (just launch the jar file)caprockgames.com/ld26/ld26.jar

    I’m in despite no potato

    My  2nd attempt. Life happened last time. I’ve developed several commercial games, but I’m still learning Java programming. As I mentioned last time, I love the challenge of starting with nothing but a language and creating a whole game. No engines, pre-existing code, just pixel blitting and native audio. I may regret my choice a few hours in.

    Tools I plan to use…

    • IntelliJ IDEA (community edition)
    • Paint.NET (maybe some mac paint program if I decide to go mac)
    • as3sfxr

    Will do some live streaming @ http://www.twitch.tv/caprockgames

    I will also post timelapse after compo.

    I’m in for LD #25

    My first programming competition. I’m new to Java game development, but after seeing a couple notch videos, I think I will give it a try for the competition. I love the challenge of starting with nothing but a language and creating a whole game. No engines, pre-existing code, just code. I may regret my choice a few hours in.

    Tools I plan to use…

    • Eclipse IDE
    • Paint.NET
    • as3sfxr

    I’ve been professionally making games or doing game related dev since 1996, so I hope that makes  up for not knowing Java all that well.

    Let’s rumble! (cockiness expected to decline through the end of the compo)
