    Still Jamming

    Back into things this morning. Day will be broken up by other responsibilities, but hope to wrap up all the loose ends. Here is some gameplay footage for now. Includes the music we wrote and recorded just for this entry. Sorry for the low quality capture.

    Gameplay Footage



    Game Over… or 24, 24 hours to go!

    48 Hours! LD48 has draws to a close in minutes but there are 24 more hours left to the LD72 Jam. If the Jam had the same schedule as the comp, then we would still have a game but with less content and polish than we would like. At this point we are in the polishing stage. The game is feature complete, but still has some rough edges. It will be interesting to see how far we can get in the last leg. Unfortunately we won’t have as much time as during the past 48 hours.

    Congrats to all the LD48 participants! You survived.

    Other jammers, let’s keep this train rolling!

    Slept, ate, back to work.

    Game summary:

    Four Hats

    Rockstars have it hard. Millions of adoring fans, mountains of cash, and no alone time. How is a musician supposed to write new music when chased by the paparazzi or the hordes of adoring fans? In order to find the solitude that you crave to unlock your inner muse, you must outrun fans and make your way to the studio. Don’t get caught by the paparazzi on your way there or your creative energy will be sapped dry.

    No Kittens?!?

    I can barely believe the lack of kittens in this prototype. Too tired to continue without a nap. Will explain gameplay in the morning. I leave you with this:

    Animations is well underway:
