half through

Sure, the screenshot doesn’t look sexy but the workbench can combine things and I can now add new areas like heros. The whole canvas thing was interesting to try out but in the end it did cost me two hours at the least. RaphaelJS which I’m now using also had its tricky parts costing me another hour.

Oh yes, my screenshots are going somewhere, the html5 canvas is already painting the inventory for me. Next is the combiner and then we can open shop for all those heroes in need of a decent weapon.

Even though you people love the shot of my specs all in green, here’s the first real one of the start screen. No game UI yet but that’s coming next. Whatcha say about the tagline The Hero’s First Choice?

The test-driven approach

Bet I’m the only one here who writes his test first. But it really pays off. As the game features an inventory and recipes like in minecraft you need to make sure everything runs orderly. On the other hand, after four hours of development I don’t have any screenshot but the results of my spec suite (jasmine if you care). But an hour or two and I’ll have a nice UI on top of the game.

Brilliant topic and I hope to give it a good twist. The player will run a weapon workshop to equip all those heroes that are alone out there in this dangerous world. It’s written in JS and html and progress is good so far, just have a look at the source code, though there are no screenshots yet. What I can show you are the places I will work from, first from my most-chaotic desk at home (every good hacker needs a sewing machine on his desk) and secondly at the metalab hackerspace in Vienna where we will have a party tonite. Smells like hung over…

I’m here to win this

Will be my first LD, my second game dev competition and be assured the second competition that I win. To everyone without a country-sized ego: go home and play with your legos.
