    A screenshot

    screenshot1Lots of identical pink NPCs. According to the big round thing, one of them is not like the others.

    Now with graphics!

    Dirt, blocks, and a… well, I’m not quite sure what that thing is. The green square is the player. At this rate it might still be a green square when the game is done.

    Anyway, this is coming on surprisingly well. Next thing to do is let the player mine those resources and use them to evolve!

    Half finished, apparently.

    Ha ha! Alt Text!This is where I stand as of now. About half the time I have is past, and here’s what I have to show for it.

    Some of these are placeholder graphics, which is to say, the yellow resource is really ugly. And hopefully there will be an actual character sprite at some point, though I wouldn’t hold my breath.

    These are just placeholder graphics, I SWEAR

    The blue dot is you. You will have to help the red dots escape.

    It is done!

    Well, sorry old man. Sometimes I confuse you for someone who likes to have fun.

    Vaguely unsettling abandoned place. OF DOOM!

    Yeah I have no idea what the black stuff is either. I don’t even know what this place is. It has tiled walls and metal floors. Maybe it’s a hospital or something. Could be a swimming pool for all I know.

    Are the floors broken, or is this some sort of bizarro staircase? And why are there two rooms full of spikes on the bottom floor? These are questions that I have about 5 hours left to answer.

    My first puzzle!

    Finally! I have made a brief tutorial, and enough elements to let the actual puzzling take place! Granted, it’s not particularly challenging yet, and the graphics could use some work (maybe I’ll throw some flowers in there or something if I have time), but it’s playable!

    Also, a new hat. Hats make everything better.

    Wouldn’t you like to know what the Space bar does? Mwahaha!

    That hat really doesn’t work as well as I thought. Oh well. Bed time now.

    Shut up old man and give me my sword

    In adapting this level from top-down to side-scrolling, I inadvertently gave the old man the ability to fly.

    A new screenshot!

    For the benefit of my loyal fans (all 2 of you), I must announce that I have finished the physics side of things, and the game is slightly playable. The red goo sticking to the walls will eventually be replaced by a real tileset.

    And in case you were wondering where the sword from the last screenshot went, he’s standing on it.

    My first screenshot!

    Ignore the nonsensically floating swords and the ugly-as-sin walls. They won’t be in the final build. Probably.


    Actually, nonsensically floating swords are a pretty good idea. Hmm…

    I’m in. I’m tossing up between Game Maker and Unity for this – probably end up with Game Maker because I’m more familiar with it.

    My brother Ben says he’ll be joining in too.

    I surrrender

    Sorry. The playable build is a lot less fun than I had hoped and a lot harder to tweak. I don’t have time to start another entry. I guess I’ll see you guys for the next miniLD.
