Yes.  This did actually take me 5 hours.  No, I’m not very proud of it.   But man, I debugged the HELL out of some HLSL.

Cloud Game Warmup

Cloud Game warmup mostly done.   You shoot the clouds.   I didn’t really have an idea, I just started coding..

I was going to do something where you were the God of REAL Twilight fans, and you had to make clouds to shield your followers from the sunlight…. But it seemed a but too involved.

Feel the love!

I plan on entering this again this time.   Hopefully I won’t get frustrated with other time commitments like the last few times…

I’m switching from my usual python / pygame joint to Ruby / Gosu and a home-brew library I’m calling Raspy.

Raspy’s pretty incomplete, and I’m planning on improving it over the compo, but the timer is pretty cool.  Hopefully I can get the Map and Viewport sections done by Friday. (Good luck)

So, here’s my entry. I don’t think I’m going to get any work done today, so I’ll upload it here, and mark it final when it’s done.

There’s not really a lot to it. In fact, the fight game play was never implemented, there’s no win condition, etc. Maybe you can see where I was going with this. Here’s the download. All you should need is python + pygame.

So, there’s almost enough gameplay in my game to call it a game.   Almost.   I hope by the end of the night I’ll get finished, but with stuff comign up in a little over an hour, this isn’t looking very likely.

Anyway, you can move people between cities.  The cities have names now.   Lots of background mechanics.   You can’t send units over walls.

I need to clean up the line crossing function.  It’s a bit broken.

My Game No walls?

I’m doing a strategy take on the theme. You use your resources to conquer the cities on the map. Any cities you control builds a wall between themselves, that the other army can’t cross.

I’m afraid I’ve bitten off more then I can chew. With wife, kids, and such, I don’t think I’ll have enough time to complete it. Originally the idea has a little turn based battle happening for control of any give city, but I definitely won’t have time to complete what will turn out to be two games. Of course, I’m only 4 programming hours in, so who knows what will happen.

I had to close proactiveapathy.com. So you’ll probably have trouble downloading my stuff until I find alternate hosting.

Tools I used!

Tools I used!

  • GraphicsGale – Art / Graphics
  • SFXr – Sound (Yaay DrP)
  • Komodo Edit – Python (and others) IDE
    • Komodo ran really slow for me. Someone on IRC said I could turn a bunch of stuff off to make it faster. I use Ecplise sometimes, but I can’t get my Linux install to run it right. I need to just use Xemacs.
  • python & pygame
  • pen & paper: Ideation

I intend to post a follow up as soon as my family visit settles down a bit. If I could do it differently I’d probably pick a different graphics program that works on Linux As it was I had to transfer graphics from my laptop to my desktop. And, as I mentioned above, I wasn’t happy with Komodo Edit.
