Spent the last 3 hours debugging my game not loading, but not throwing any errors either. I was implementing a resource management component to building the houses. I just ripped all of it out to get back to where I was before the error. GameMaker can be such a little huuore at times.

Well “All in one, scream” is officially a game. Not a very good one mind you, but a game none the less. We have lava flowing, huts and villagers being burned, points being given, villagers now stay on the island. Here is what I would like to accomplish today.

  • Still have some object creation code not working correctly(huts are not spawning new villagers)
  •  Some collision events not firing(villagers are not breeding)
  •  Sprite animation
  •  Burning(currently the object is destroyed when it comes in contact with lava, would like to make the objects burn and degrade.
  •  Apply the sprites my daughter created
  •  prettify the splash page.

Well, I had to run my wife on some errands with my daughter so we lost most of the day. I have the basic objects in the game. The people walk, procreate when they collide with each other, and turn away when they get to the lip of the volcano.

To-do:  I still have not decided how to have them stay on the island, plus I will want them to disappear when they go in the huts.

The huts are place able. To-do: can’t place in water, nor in the volcano. Have tem build after placement, not allow next hut until previous one is placed.

Lava is created. To-do: eruption.

Need to execute all image animations.

 

We are having allot of fun together as a family, my wife will do some QA for us.

We have the base folder created, the one room which will be the screen. @raneeee_g7 is working on actual graphics, while she learns GraphicGale.
Here is a screen shot of the pitiful developer graphics I will use while I code All in one, scream.screenGamJam1

Working title, All in one, scream!

After some brainstorming, Rane and I decided to make a game that is a feed the volcano game. You build a town around the volcano. It will erupt randomly, pouring hot lava in a random direction. The more you feed the volcano the higher your score. It will just have one screen, a island with a big volcano in the center.

My 16 year old daughter and I plan to create a game together. What tool we use will probably be based on the theme. Robert del Naja and Andrew Melchior thanks for the assets, they are great and I plan to use one of the music assets in our game.

 

Quick question, I do not see the opt-out checkboxes, and it seems submitting the game is just a post from what I read in the FAQ. Is there something I am missing? Good luck everyone!
