I’m going to try to do the Compo this time, but either way this is the FIRST time in a very long time that I have nothing from the start time to the end time. My goals for this LD:

  1. Make a wallpaper – DONE! (see the bottom)
  2. Finish my LD Game
  3. Rate 100 entries

I haven’t REALLY accomplished the goal of finishing a game since the first LD I ever entered almost two years ago and it stings. Every time I miss an LD or fail to complete, I wish I had done more. This LD is my chance to really put something great together.

I hope that everyone enjoys themselves and we all come out with something we’re proud of, but as I’ve mentioned, it’s tough. Since March of 2014, I’ve only successfully completed one LD project. Don’t beat yourself up if you don’t make it. Just do your best! And make your games come true!!!

Wallpaper

HAPPY LD34, EVERYONE!!!

Here’s the wallpaper:LD33_Flower

It’s 1920 x 1080! Enjoy!

Hoping I’ll have enough time next weekend to compete. If I can, maybe I’ll finally hop into the compo portion (I’ve always done the jam). Mostly I just want to get something done again and I’m pretty excited about a lot of the themes I saw during the slaughter. Hope they resurface!

Is anyone hoping for any theme in particular?

Still workin’ on my LD32 game! Got some new effects in this weekend.

RJD Post LD32 Is A Very Different…Burrito

So, it’s funny how LD always has such a crazy effect on me. This time I was only able to work for 18 hours total (maybe even a little less) on my entry. I’m still really happy about it because overall I was just looking to get SOMETHING out and it managed to score pretty much straight 3s – not too shabby!

Since then, I’ve been expanding and building in the things that I originally intended to have (time permitting…which it didn’t). A lot of people requested features in the comments that I already had planned (some, like bonus time for deliveries, were actually already IN the LD version) and now you’ll see the game continue to develop!

First is a quick shot of one of the locations where you’ll have to stock up on an item. Need more burritos for your deliveries? Head on over to the best burrito place in RJD!

Burritoad_02

#GetBurritoad

Burritoad is one of the many restaurants that will be present in the game. Unlike in the prototype, players will not always have an endless supply of items. Restocking will be something you have to take into account on your runs, so KNOW YOUR FOOD STOPS!

Especially if you want to have happy customers! And not…you know…angry…ones.

CustPicker

YIKES! CUSTOMER EMOTION!

So this is the basic design for what will pop up on screen after a successful delivery. The game will tell you how far away you are from 2 possible delivery spots and what food item is required to satisfy that customer’s cravings. You’ll need to be able to deliver the amount of food and get it to the customer on time if you want that tip! Depending on how well you do, the customer will respond in a text bubble containing some of those choice expressions!

So what can you do with money? Oh MAYBE BE A BUNNY ROBOT…THING!?

Customizer_02

I’m in your house. Customizin’ your sprites.

So one of the big things I’ve been working on is making it so that you can change your sprite in the game. Eventually this will be an entire menu on its own, but I’m excited for how silly it already looks with the interchangeable parts. My hope is that players will like mixing and matching everything. Eventually I’d like for there to be even more animations, but each one takes a little time and I’m on a tight schedule during the week.

So that’s where I’m at! I hope you enjoyed this look at the future of Run -> Jump ^ Deliver, and if you played the game and voted thank you again for your time and feedback!

Until next time!

Hello? (Testing)

So I’ve noticed that for some reason my profile is not working correctly. Hopefully creating my first post will fix it so that it displays! I’m happy with the fact that I got SOMETHING in this time, but I feel a little sad that it’s not more complete. I do plan to keep working on the game and release a new version and considering everything I’m happy with the result. It’s a great start!

If you’re reading this, please take a moment to check out my LD31 entry Natquik¬†and let me know what you think! If you leave a comment I’ll be sure to respond and head over to your page to vote/comment!

Thank you!
