Wait … what?
Due to an overwhelming dose of real life, my LD entry became a little delayed. However, I’m escaping real life for the next 13 hours to write one quarter of an LD game. (in one quarter of the usual time). I’m hoping I can write the correct quarter – so that I come out with a playable game at the end.
I’ll be using my own framework on top of SDL, which – if you’d like to join me in this quarter-LD madness – can be downloaded here. As usual, it’s buggy and incomplete, but hopefully will save me time in the end. Despite being based on SDL I use a bunch of windows stuff, so it’s Windows Only.
I’m also recording my adventure using my screenshot capture program from LD18. You can download it from here (Windows only). It’ll ask for a path (which needs to end in a slash – ie: C:\Screenshots\”); a count (files are saved as 0001, 0002 etc, so this is the first number); and the time between screenshots in seconds. Due to the wonderful hack I used to write it, it wipes the clipboard every time it takes an image. Beware!
Onto the game …
With time racing past, I need to write something very (very) simple. So I’m aiming for a physics-based puzzle adventure platform game with RPG elements. Without the RPG stuff, or the adventure stuff, or the puzzle stuff.
Onwards and upwards! (Or sideways to the next platform).
