Post mortem

What went right:

– had fun

– ate healthy

– slept enough

– submitted

What went wrong

– hated the crapy graphics

– hated my (first) game for having no sound

– took too long to find an idea

– didn’t spend enough time on my game

– was interrupted too often and too long by my family

– submitted to jam

-submitted crap

– was killed by compiler

– didn’t capture my whole work for timelapse

What did I learn?

– willl have to learn to make some real graphics and animations

– should not use C for this

– video velocity 3 ain’t the best timelapse solution

– 1 frame per 15 seconds is a little too fast for timelapse.

EDIT: What also went right: Wasn’t the worst (jam) entry at all. And was in theme top 100.

EDIT 2: Reading this post I was worse than the worst jam entry^^

Seems I’m out…

MinGW forces me to quit. Can’t bugfix the compiler in a weekend (or even in a year). Will try newest version and hope it works. Otherwise I’ll be out.

EDIT: I’m out. Allready had the newest MinGW installed (and downloaded the installer for the 3rd time). Might submit hello world to be able to rate. Will ask before. Timelapse video will follow.

EDIT2: Timelapse

Buffer overflow (might also be an underflow, can’t find it), Balancing problems, missing features, … that sucks.

Still very useless.

Known bugs: You can Jump through most Obstacles, you can jump infinitely (double jump, tripple jump, …, infinite jump)


EDIT: Bugs partly fixed. You just can still fall(not jump) through obstacles


EDIT 2: Last Bug fixed, new version up. (All links are still up.)


EDIT 3: Enemies


Finaly got a plan

It took me 4 hours and definitly won’t be the best game, but hopefully not the worst too. That pushes my motivation a lot.
Rimruls Notes

Might be in

I might be in for the first time, if my laptop is repaired early enough. I think I’ll do a timelapse video. I’m gonna start for compo, but might end in jam. Language, Genre and other Stuff will be decided when I know the topic.

EDIT: Laptop is repaired. Still don’t know if in. But at least I voted.
