Sad Face

I didn’t get to finish my game, due to some unforeseen/foreseen errands I had to do. Oh well, I better start writing a game engine for the next compo, that should make it easier.

Sad face.

Oh dear, this theme irks me. What do I do with that? Perhaps I should do Hamlet, or have it be about exploration or technolology (I don’t take technology seriously, hence the “lol” in the middle) discovering. I don’t know, perhaps I’ll just sleep on it.

Isometric madness

I am using Python and Pygame for this compo. Ok, so as of now I’ve written an (Really pathetic) isometric engine for my game. I don’t know how it’s gonna turn out, but I have a penguin who may swim from island to island. Right now I can’t figure out how to layer the character and the tiles right.




So I might be busy tomorrow, and might not finish.

I figured I should do a motivational poster this time; I couldn’t find a picture, and I couldn’t think of anything motivating, so here goes:


What to do

I’ve been using Python with Pygame so far, and I’d like to make an antarctic exploration game for this ludum dare. The only problem is I have no idea how to do perfect pixel collision. Oh well, I guess I’ll have to figure this one out.

I do declare!

I do declare, these declarations are driving me to didactic dexterity. Therefore I hereby do dutifully declare independence from these declarations. Let these daring declarations be destroyed!!

Alright I have to make a game

I need to collaborate, so the potential quality of my work could (Maybe it won’t, but with younger siblings helping…) go down, but, I should be able to get more done, making a better overall game. Now to get collaborating and brainstorming, maybe my Mom or my siblings or friends can help.

Thanks to all who commented on my game.

First I would like to say thanks to all who commented on my game, I will make sure to consider your comments when making my next game. So I guess some things I should do for next time are:

  • Bigger game window size, perhaps twice the size
  • Make the game have more puzzles
  • Stronger plot

Progress so far

So far, I have what appears to be a working game. I only have one level, but they are hard to make. Essentially it’s about a Leprechaun who get’s captured and must escape.
