I spent most of my time procrastinating, but I got it done anyway!

Here it is!

Is it any good? I have no idea. Why don’t you play it and find out?

I’m procrastinating a lot.

I messed around with the CSS a little bit in Sugarcane, Twine’s default theme. It looks a lot closer to the mood I want now. Now to actually keep writing the thing.

Took a low depth of field picture off of my screen ’cause that makes it look cool. Don’t know where I’m going with this, hopefully it’s good.

 

okay okay okay

I guess I’m gonna do this! I’ve been wanting to do something with Twine for a while now, and this theme seems like a great opportunity to do so. Given how Twine doesn’t involve too much in the way of actual programming (something I’m historically bad doing quickly enough for a jam) I might just actually finish this time!

I’m beginning to notice a pattern

My game just isn’t working out. I think I’m gonna drop out again. One day I’ll actually finish one of these. I’m not coming out of this one completely empty handed, though. I’ll always have the memory of getting lots of hearts and and a freakin’ TROPHY for my super awesome title screen.

Prepare yourself

All previous times, I gave up fairly early in the compo. This time, I am going to try my darndest to actually finish. I’m hoping that it will help that in between this and the last one, I actually released my first game!

I’m using FlashPunk again, since it’s the only thing I really know how to use. I have a simple platformer framework using FlashPunk that I’ve been working on that I’ll use if I decide to go down that route for my game. As per the rules, it’s available here, though I can’t imagine why you’d want to use it. It’s not very good.

Good luck to everyone!

Adios

This mess of incomprehensibility is all I’ve got so far. There’s still a crazy about of work to do be done to actually call it a game, and the more I think about the basic concept, the less I like it.

So, I’m calling it quits on this one. I’m feeling like my programming skills aren’t currently at the point where I should have undertaken a 48 hour competition like this. I’m still gonna try next time, though!

Progress is slow

The only real screenshot I can provide is this. There should be real graphics at some point! Hopefully!

I’m in! I tried to participate in the last one of these, but real life engagements got in the way. This time, real life continues to rear its ugly head with a thing I have to go to, cutting my 48 hours down to 45. Still, I should hopefully be able to churn something out. I’ve never finished a game before, let alone in a weekend. I’ll be using Flashpunk and probably not sleeping enough.
