Timelapse + Postmortem

Firstly Timelapse!

yeah it’s 16 minutes long 1 minute = 1 hour there ahhhhh.

Anyways not much to say this time, I ran into some slight issues with implementing features on time (player upgrades)  but it’s mostly playable so…
I’d probably want to leave some time to bug test and add sound as I had to do two quick bug fixes (1 to render the game playable second to make it xp compatable)

Anyways game here:

First Update

First of a screenshot (click for full size):

Yeah that blury square thing is the character.

So far:

– 0 sprites, everything is a particle
– debug system started (displays particle count in each system)
– Movement system done (quad directional momentum based)
– Window scales according to screen size from minimum of 360p to 720p to 1080p in multiples of 360 so on…
– Ideas!

engine test here with bouncing border things:

Wassup LD24? This’ll be by second (3rd with the intention of attending) LudumDare. Best of luck to all the people attending and no pressure haha.

Gonna most likely be using GM: Studio, which is much less buggier the GM: HTML5. That being the reason I didn’t attend last time. For the rest of the stuff here’s a list:

BFXR, some other synth gen’s I have lying around
Either none, a quick tune using my piano, or something in NI Massive
Gonna try and use shapes as my main design else I’m probably gonna use paint.net
OS: Windows 7 x64
Web Browser: Chrome v22?
Motivation / Chat: Skype + LD IRC

My base code will be posted as soon as I’m back on my laptop (currently on an iPod As I’m about to get some well needed rest and would rather not turn my comp back on even though it’ll only take 30 seconds cause Hybrid drives are amazing) which’ll probably be an hour or two before the theme is announced.

Hoping that the theme’ll be something that I can make a more freeform game that’s more abstract such as Deep Space, Chain Reaction and Evolution. As to the 1000 kittens theme that’s actually not a bad idea. I’d just need to enter the Jam in order to reuse some popular cat sprites. Hehe.

Anyways again good luck to you all and…

This is my first LD and gaming compatition ever…

But I have made many games/apps for the pc using GM and C#. I’m probably going to make the game in GM7 or 8. Also if anyone knows whether we can use  engines (rpg, platformer etc.) that we made before the compo for this compo. (awnser in comments)

 Well anyways good luck to all the people contending.
