Let’s get this done

I’ve read the theme 20 minutes ago and I haven’t had any idea yet. Now I’m in panic mode. I’m gonna make some coffee.

My codebase is here, just cocos2d-x with some empty scenes added: https://github.com/solkar/LD29/

I don’t know if there is a trophy for the crappiest entry ever but this one has many options. There are zillions of ways I can improve this but that will be tomorrow.



First update Day2

I was about to throw the towel when I was unable to print text on the screen… but then I though that I should be more flexible and focus in what I can actually do and not in what I should like to do. And voila, here you can see this damn wolf that refuses a sheep as tribute to open the door for us.

Now it’s time to build some more rooms, more items and more crummy lines of text.

Summary from Day#1

I spent all the afternoon developing the inventory system and I couldn’t work on game mechanics. My lack of experience with CraftyJs, in particular, and javascript, in general, make me advance very, very slow.

At least the items on the inventory can be “evolved”. Here it shown the evolution of a sheep to wool and then a sweater. LAME!!!

Some progress with the prototype

I’m using CraftyJs and Box2d for this prototype. I added several rooms without much content. The red box is supposed to be the chamber to refill the juice of the evolution gun.

Next step will be to add the HUD with a mini-map and the inventory.

My main character sports a fancy evo-gun that can transform objects into other stuff (here it’s where everybody acknowledges that this is evolution). Now I realize this gun sounds like a Doraemon’s gadget, hahaha.


I need to code lots of stuff… where should I begin?

Late on schedule

Yesterday I went to bed before the theme was announced (2 am here in Helsinki) and this morning I woke up just to read the theme and dream on about it. I don’t really like it though.  I’m late on the schedule.

See you soon with some game idea.


Personal Reminder: don’t attend to nya gig the night before LD
