Somehow I managed to finish it on time, I have no idea how.

So I left coding the game’s “undo” stuff until the very last minute, which was probably a pretty horrible idea, and the game will SUCK without being able to undo… Gonna see if I can squeeze it out in time!

Art and sounds are done!

So I finally finished all the art and sound stuff.

All the art was made in Blender, and the sounds and music were made with Ableton live.

Feel free to download a zip with all the sounds and music from here.

Just the mp3 itself: The Word Alone Music. To be honest, calling it music is a stretch, it’s really just some pads because I wanted some sort of ambience.




Making Textures

I’ve been making textures for my 3D stuff. I needed a wood texture, but because of the rules, I have to create everything myself. I decided to take a photo of my laminate floor, and then tweak it in photoshop until it got closer to what I wanted.

I started with this:

Source photo of my floor

And eventually ended up with this…

Result, tweaked colours

…and this:

Result, smoothed out

I realize the smoothed one is pretty blotchy, but it actually looks decent on the game stuff itself.

The Word Alone

Alright, so I think I’ve figured out what my idea is… it’s a word game, but I’ll explain more later as I flesh it out.

I’m gonna be making it with Flash, and most of the art is gonna be done in Blender, then rendered and brought into Flash.

We happen to be also putting an offer on a house today, which is gonna take a ton of time, so I’m hoping I’ll actually have enough time to get this done!




I’m in!

Probably gonna use Flash. I’ve got a some of my own libraries/utils/engines that I may use as well, it all depends on the theme.
