RocketDad Update!

Good evening!

(Time of writing this, 7:37pm)

We just ate dinner that my wife made and it was delicious. Taco Soup! <3

Sun Wukong can finally perform his mighty 3 Hit Combo! We’re super excited about this and it feels really good in game. Now we just have to get enemies. 😛

Dan and Josh are currently working on balancing the jump mechanics to make it fair for all players and I’m working on more player sprites.

Here’s some actions that we have working for the player:
3 Hit Combo
Super Jump
Double Jump
Hanging by your tail
Ground Pound

We’re hoping that by the time we’re done adding all of the movements and abilities for the player, that they’ll have a lot of different actions they can string together for a fun playing experience. Hopefully we’ll have more gifs for you in the future!


RocketDad, Report!

Well, I’m callin’ it now: I’m not gonna have anything done by either of the submission times.
I just had too much goin’ on this weekend.

But, it was a wonderful experience for me to start working on a project of my own in where I am doing the development as well as my usual art.  I def want to see this game through to the end and I would love to keep you guys updated on it’s progress.

I’m still gonna be workin’ this weekend, but real world stuff is taking up my compo time.

Good luck to everyone else out there!

Also, I just thought of a name for my game while I was in the shower; it shall be called “Minima”

Well, I now know without a doubt that I won’t have anything to submit by the time LD is over. I just have too much stuff going on this weekend. I’ve got two banquets and a wedding shower to go to.

I’m still gonna finish this thing though, you can count on it.

But real world stuff comes first. :)
Anyways, here’s a quick look at my work in progress.

As an artist, it hurts me that I’m still using stand-in art. But, the game comes first!

IAP ruining my life.

Well, it’s not exactly an in app purchase, but I’m use the lite (free) version of game maker and a lot of the stuff I wanna do I’m afraid in only in the standard version.


Time to go.. *puts on sunglasses* ..minimalist.

Well, well! Progress! ..and obstacles.

The more I work on this vague idea I had coming into this thing, the more I start to find a focus for it and the more I find ways to simplify it. I’m excited. I may try to finish this game whether it’s done in time for the Jam or not.

So I started actual work on this about 12 hours late. So there’s that.
I also have a couple banquets I need to go to this weekend. There’s also that.
And I just found out there is a wedding shower that I’m supposed to go to tomorrow because I’m a groomsman in the wedding.

So.. I’m gonna try to work on this instead of sleeping/eating.

Bold strategy, Cotton, I know.
Let’s see how it works out for me.

Well, I’ll try.

Well, here goes nothing.

I stated previously that I didn’t know whether I was in or not.
Well, I’ve been researching and mulling things over in my head since the LD started.

I’m an artist. Not a programmer.
At all.

My programmer is at a wedding this weekend.


I think I’m gonna try.
I wanna do this.

Base: Game Maker Lite 8.1 (or maybe Blender. I dunno)
Art: Graphics Gale, PhotoShop, Illustrator
Sound: sfxr aaaand I dunno what else. Maybe free libraries.

Wish me luck.

Not So Sure This Time, Guys

Hey fellow LDers!

I’ve entered a couple LDs in the past with my teammate Maggard, but unfortunetly this time we won’t be able to do so! He is in a wedding this weekend!

So, I’m not sure what I’m gonna do yet as part of me would still like to enter. But I’m an artist, so that’s kinda hard to do alone.
Another friend of mine who has also entered in the past and who is entering again this time ask me if I would like to join him this time, so I may take him up on that offer.

Or I may just work on an idea for myself: do some art, animations, storyboards, etc. Just to do.

Or maybe I could just create some random bits and pieces and make them publicly available for everyone else to use in their games!

Or just play more Monster Hunter.
I haven’t decided.

Final Update: Done

Will post a post mordem later!

Update 16: Don’t Quit the Day Job

Posted by (twitter: @DenverSkyline)
Monday, August 27th, 2012 1:09 pm

Hey LDers!

I realize it’s been quite a while since my last update up it’s for good reason! Jif and I have been hard at work trying to finish everything in time for submission.
Unfortunately we’ve had to cut some stuff, but we’ve been able to keep a lot as well.
I don’t really remember what time I fell asleep last night, I just remember waking up at my desk at 5am and then crawling in bed because I had to go to work today. The problem of being graduated from college is that now I have a big boy job where I work a regular 8-5 job.

BUT! My job is amazing! I pretty much experience Ludum Dare every week! See, as an artist for a local indie game dev company, I get to continue to do what I’ve been doing all week!

So.. I had to take a break from game dev, to go to work to do some game dev.
Not sure if winning, or inception.

At any rate, it sucks that I’m unable to work on the LD entry for a few hours but at least Jif is back at our apartment working diligently.
I def gotta give him some props for this weekend. This is only our second LD and I feel like we’ve made better progress this time. It’s crazy.

I’ve been seeing some great screens and I cannot wait to play everyone’s games! I plan on playing them all! Even if I have to spend time after the contest is over.

Well guys, I’ll be crunching in some more work before submission tonight, so I’ll see you guys then!

Update 15: My Programmer is Dying (But not for reals)

Posted by (twitter: @DenverSkyline)
Monday, August 27th, 2012 12:09 am

Hey LDers!

Time is running out for us Jammers! Better get those final touches in! Don’t forget music! (Even though we probably won’t have any) lol.
Here’s a few screens for ya. I’m not going to make this long cause I’ve got work to do.

It’s currently 2am and I have to get up in the morning for work. I don’t get off until 5pm. I’ll get home around 6pm, and LD ends at 8pm for me! Not fair!


You did well! What’s it going to be?

Update 14: Test of Love

Posted by (twitter: @DenverSkyline)
Sunday, August 26th, 2012 8:35 pm

How do you know you have a good girlfriend?

Spend the weekend in a silly adventure making video games from scratch, whilst killing yourself, instead of seeing her.

If she never complains once, comes to visit you, brings you food, vacuums your floor, washes your dishes so that “you don’t have to worry about it”, then, well, she’s a keeper.

I love my girlfriend.
And I love making video games.


Update 13: Final Stretch

Posted by (twitter: @DenverSkyline)
Sunday, August 26th, 2012 1:47 pm

Update time guys!

Working on some tilesets at the moment.

Word up for hand drawn!

We’re beginning to feel like we’re running out of time. But at the same time, I still feel like we have things under control.
Music is always an issue for us because neither of us ever have time and we always put it off until the end. And even then, we should be doing other things. Oh well. We’ll just have to see how things turn out.

If you guys wanna watch me do art stuff, you should check me out!

It’s be really cool and stuff. 😉

Update 12: We Have a Plan B

Posted by (twitter: @DenverSkyline)
Sunday, August 26th, 2012 11:46 am

Hey LDers!

Well, if we end up running out of time and can’t get our platformer going how we want, we’ll at least have a really fun brawler for you to play. If we resorted to this Plan (B)rawler, it’d hurt our rankings a bit cause of the game play, but it’d be mindless fun. haha.


Enjoy, guys.
~ScreamRawr & Jif

Update 11: Don’t Eat My Eggs!

Posted by (twitter: @DenverSkyline)
Sunday, August 26th, 2012 10:46 am

Hey LDers!

For those of you who are participating in the 48 hour compo, good luck! I can’t wait to play your game!
And those of us who are in the Jam, don’t give up yet! We can do it!

I’ll keep things short so that I can get back to work.

Quince came over.


This was the result:

Sweet breakfast!

And then I worked on the game!

What’s inside?

See you guys soon! 😀
