I’m dead …

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015 5:41 am

Wow ! That was my first LD … I was hyper excited to participate, and now that’s it’s done, I’m exhausted ……

-= Bottom : Unconventional Weapons at bug scale =-

I saw that after the “I’m in” tradition, there is a “postmortem” one. So here is mine :

Wasted Time :

  • spent too much time too get inspired by the theme : ~12H
  • spent too much time crafting the cubemap skybox with Gimp and photos : ~5H
  • spent too much time searching for a music : ~3H
  • spent too much time finding a way to convert it to OGG : ~2H
  • spent too much time sleeping : ~30H
  • spent too much time fiuguring out how LD user account works : ~3H
  • spent too much time wasting time : ~10H
  • ————————————————
  • TOTAL WASTE : ~65H
  • ————————————————

What went wrong :

  • not enough time to improve AI, to add more levels and a GameOver
  • got a broken Internet access
  • that’s not the game I was planing to make …..

What went OK :

  • total improvisation

Will I try to participate to the next LD ?

  • probably.

… so will try the jam instead.

Fixed some bugs and added some more. Added foliage, shadows and a tiny slug as boss.
Need to add a smart AI, make bugs die or explode, add animated legs and antenna, counting score, menus and some other stuffs.

Godot is really a great piece of software. Unfortunately, it does not make coffee or keep beers cool.

Bullets are subject to gravity. You might miss your target when you’re upside-down.

Was not really inspired by the theme. Took me almost 12 hours to get motivated and inspired.

Still have to determine what will be the unconventional weapon … but hey, still have plenty of time !

I think I’m in, therefore I’m in
