One more update then I can finally sleep.

Its hard to believe this all started from scratch 48 hours ago. I flipped through the notebook where I was brainstorming ideas after I heard the topic. Here’s where my idea for AWAP came together Friday night/Saturday morning after 4 pages of unused ideas. I love looking back at original ideas and concepts, thought some people might find this interesting 😀

compare that to the finished product http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-22/?action=preview&uid=8729

Its been a looong 2 days. Nice job to all 720 (!) people who got into the compo. Can’t wait to see your games. And now some long overdue and much-deserved sleep

So I think I’m totally finished with AWAP! I’m holding off submitting until closer to the deadline just in case I remember something I left out or find an unexpected bug. Here’s one more screen. Looks like the others but I added a little to the background, just some buildings and trees. You can play it soon, I hope you enjoy it!

 

 

in case you missed the first post:

The concept is basically being lonely and so you use the spacebar and mouse to type and send messages (read:Tweets) to become more popular. If someone is talking about a message you’re typing you can click to mention them for bonus points and bonus popularity. The game ends when you can’t keep up and you lose all your followers and are, once again, alone.

Finished the gameplay for AWAP early this morning, around 5:30am. Now just working on some graphical and tutorial issues. Making it more presentable. Here’s some more screens of the gameplay and the gameover screen. Hope you like it!

Hello! Here’s a screenshot from my game. It’s called “Alone With a Phone”.

The concept is basically being lonely and so you use the spacebar and mouse to type and send messages (read:Tweets) to become more popular. If someone is talking about a message you’re typing you can click to mention them for bonus points and bonus popularity. The game ends when you can’t keep up and you lose all your followers and are, once again, alone.
