Codename: Taken – Finished?

I finished a prototype of one of the ideas I had in mind, the name is Codename: Taken.

In a quick description, the objective is to to survive from red flying robots (mushrooms) attacks but you can’t defend by yourself, so the creator of the game (me) gives you a green flying robot to defend you from the enemies.

Here is a video of the game play:

Ludum Dare 20 – Codename: Taken – Gameplay

note: dunno how to embed youtube videos.

I made a time lapse of the game development too:

Ludum Dare 20 – Codename: Taken – Time lapse

Sadly I couldn’t complete it in time as a game, some core features like dying so game can finish, couldn’t be added in time. However, I wanted to complete a bit more the game so I worked today in adding some stuff to enter the Ludum Dare Jam as well.

Here are the links for the game:

Hope you like it.

I have no !@$#% game yet

And I don’t think I could finish it before the ludum dare ends :(

I am so sad, I have been working a lot but couldn’t advance a bit, dunno exactly if it was the idea (0 originality) or if I took the wrong way to make it.

Right now I have a guy that jumps over some platforms and nothing more, even I have some bugs with how I am using the physics engine.

At least, I left two screen shots of it:

Good luck to everyone.

Just starting with my game – Taken

I dunno what to do, I have some ideas but none of them are convincing, and for now the project’s codename is Taken (no, I mean, that’s the codename)

Anyways, I am preparing my workspace and all necessary stuff for my project, here a photo of the first one:

  • IDE/Editor: Eclipse
  • 3D Modeling and Animation: Sculptrix and Blender
  • Images: Gimp, Inkscape
