Progress

Space to drill

The first bit of the game is coming together, but there have been a number of problems along the way. And I still have another aspect of the game to work on.

The basics

Getting the basics down.

Landing on Enceladus

Landing on Enceladus

I’m planning on having the game start off with a lunar-lander-esque section.

Rest

I made the decision to get some sleep last night rather than start my game. So; I guess I’m having a late start but I plan on making up for it. I think the rest will be helpful.

 

Basic game idea is that you control a robot submarine exploring the icy ocean of Enceladus; avoiding obstacles and “scanning” alien life.

Challenger

Challenger – Coding Computer

Endeavour

Endeavour – graphics computer

My work stations. Will do my coding in Sublime Text onĀ “Challenger” which is running Elementary OS Luna, a Debian/Ubuntu-based Linux distro with an attractive UI. Will use Endeavour if I need to use Photoshop or paint with my tablet.

I’m very fond of my Unicomp keyboard. I might actually get another mechanical keyboard; an original “Model M”, in the mail today if I’m lucky.

Will be participating
