SAUROPOD vs THEROPOD: the ultimate dinosaur evolution game

Posted by (twitter: @martijnfrazer)

I’m happy to announce I managed to finish my game in time for the compo \o/

You can find it here: SAUROPOD vs THEROPOD

If you want to know what it’s like to be herbivorous dinosaur trying to evolve into a magnificent giant, then SAUROPOD vs THEROPOD is the game for you.

Alternatively, if you just like to see over 200 bizarre but actual real dinosaur names, then SAUROPOD vs THEROPOD is also very much for you.

Thanks for playing!

Dino fight!

I just completed the music for my dino game: SAUROPODS vs THEROPODS.

This is the sort of music that dinosaurs actually listened to. Totally legit.

Holy cow, I made an AI

It may not look like much yet, but I GOT IT TO MOVE AND DO STUFF!

I’m excited. I’ve got the Sauropod part working. Next up: getting that Theropod in there!

I spent the first morning of LD thinking of an idea for my game. It’s going to be a dinosaur-themed game about evolution and growth, with battles involving only two buttons.

For now, the working title is: SAUROPOD VS THEROPOD

This is some concept art I’ve created to get a feel for how the game should work.



I think it’s time to start coding now :3

Dude, you’re missing out 😛

You can play my slow little game here: LAST CHANCE FOR BERNIE by Tijn

I almost gave up, but I didn’t

Things were looking quite bleak for me yesterday. I didn’t like any aspect of what I had been making and it looked like I wasn’t going to be able to include the things I wanted in my game.

I almost gave up. But instead, I tried to make the best out of it. I’m glad I did, because now I at least have something to show for :)

Please play my crappy game: LAST CHANCE FOR BERNIE

Oh and by the way: I’ll have a timelapse of my efforts ready later, but already I can tell that this is the best frame 😛

So, after toiling for two days, this is what I have to show for myself:

Turns out gamedev is actually not that easy. Who knew? I didn’t 😛

So with just 15 hours to go, all I currently have is this:

Now to turn this into a game somehow D:

These groovy tracks will surely comfort Bernie a bit.

Move Bernie, move!

This is Bernie.

Bernie hasn’t been doing well at work lately, his boss is very upset with him. His job is to guard the captured princess, but Marius the princess saving hero has been slipping past every single time.

Today is the Last Chance For Bernie. He better not screw up.

I’m in and i’m out(side)!

I just woke up and saw the theme. I think I can make something with this :)

Also, the weather is looking promising today, so I’m going to attempt to make my game while sitting in the sun. So at least I’ll have a nice day outside 😎

Eurovision: 80% of my timelapse

Posted by (twitter: @martijnfrazer)
Friday, April 24th, 2015 4:25 pm

I recorded a timelapse of me making my Eurovision game. Sadly though, about 10 hours before the deadline the script crashed, just as I was recording some guitar for one of the songs in the game.

You can watch everything I did up until that point though:

What happened after this was:
– I did a lot of singing
– I made the animations for the bands

I’m really sad my script crashed, I would have liked to have the video in full, but this is all I have :'(

If you want to play my game, you can find it here: http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-32/?action=preview&uid=49432

World Domination Through The Power Of Song

I made a game this weekend about the Eurovision Song Contest. You can play it here: http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-32/?action=preview&uid=49432

In this post I’ll write about how the game came together and what I’ve learned from the whole thing.
