So I haven’t posted much about my LDJAM entry, but it’s been getting some votes so I figured it would be a good idea to post about it here. Simply put, my game is a poor Super Crate Box clone.

Sadly, the game didn’t get balanced, or even really finished. The menus were slapped together in a hurry and a bunch of artwork didn’t get completed. Me and my artist were not really well prepared to enter the jam, which is why I didn’t make a post announcing that we were going to enter. We weren’t sure if we could get anything done in the time allotted.

We had opposite sleeping schedules. He’s from South Africa, and I’m in the United States. Working with different timezones probably hurt us more than anything. While I was waiting on HUD, he ended up making more weapons. When I needed enemy artwork, he was busy with sleep, or rolling blackouts – as South Africa has some kind of power issues at the moment.

So needless to say, this game isn’t complete. But it’s still sorta fun, and the graphics look pretty sweet if I do say so myself. (Thanks Unity Pro Trial!)

So check it out if you want. I enjoy feedback – but believe me, I already know the game isn’t great.

I also made a video about the development of this game. Sort of a timelapse/summary.

I also streamed about 7 hours of development on twitch, so if you wan’t to watch me do stuff in the past, check it out!

Coins and more FIRE!

Coins and more FIRE!

I added coins and more fire effects. I really want to add more to this project, but for now, it is SUBMITTED!

Unfortunately I had to turn it in as an unfinished game. You can’t die, and coins are not counted. There are 3 hours left, but I have some other responsibilities to take care of. :(

Maybe I’m in?

Lava? Cubes? Minimal!

Lava? Cubes? Minimal!

I wasn’t really sure if I’d be making anything this weekend. I’ve spent most of my time watching others on Twitch.

Surprise!

I’ll be adding a 2nd player and some particles. Not really sure if I’ll get to a titlescreen or anything. I need to clean up my website too. Forgive the ugliness at TrentSterling.com
