In the middle of the bad things I’ve been through the weekend. I decided to keep my game simple and tought that I could make a game out of my work. I’m alone at the night every thay and keep telling Windows that he should work becouse he used to. But I have leaved out the programming and stuff like that and added the fun parts and some problems to solve and watch out for.
Basically you sit in front of the monitor and try to find a way out of randomly generated 2D mazes to get score. But you have 4 stats – awakeness, stress, hydatation and bladder – as well to watch out for. If they reach their limit than you loose – fall a sleep, going mad, get dehydratated or be in shame at work place. These stats can be easily controlled with a mouse click. You can make coffee to drink to stay awake or water to get hydrated and you can go to the toilet.
The problem is their effect on eachother. Becouse if stress go high, then you are getting tired quicker and start to see hallucinations that couse more stress. Bladder goes up from water and coffee too, but you need to drink to reduce stress and to avoid dehydratation. And while you can make more coffe, you can’t replenish the water resource.
Hallucinations are coming when you are doing your job, but gets more intensive when you go alone to the toilet or the make coffee. So watch out. The ghosts are building up your stress…
The game made entirely in Processing becouse I needed to learn it. So This was my first time I’ve wrote a line of code in it. Sadly other things have gotten in my way, so the game is about half finished. It need some features and some graphics. There isn’t even support in the code for sound – I’ll add it tough. But the main engine is working pretty well.
This concludes to myself that I’m f***ing awesome and have to work hard on things like game making. Instead of the DAQ programs for foundries and the likes…
Anyway have fun with it. The source is up with the release. Feel free to use it. To play the game, click on the first screen, use wasd to move in the mazes and try to go out at the bottom as many of then as you can. Click on the coffee or the water to drink. If you run out of coffee, then click on it once more to get another one. (This minigame isn’t working yet!) To go to the toilet, click on the Bladder stat. (This is a similar minigame and it’s in the state like the other with the coffee…) There are no scores, but I wanted to do it like “how many mazes in wath amount of time, but maybe there are more possibilities than this. I’ll consider them too.
Here is the entry: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-22/?action=preview&uid=5167 Try it out!
My brother was stayed up late just to tell me the theme on phone: Alone. Now that is a theme I have nothing to do with. I love to be alone. I’m just doing my stuff and nobody disturbs me. But this isn’t a good start for a game. So I went sleep, maybe dreams will be some help.
Woke up at 10 am to a phone call. My boss sad the Acustic Analyzer most be working on next week. But I’m not here next week. So I needed to come back to work to reinstall windows. Install NIDAQ and the analyzing software… This thing isn’t working for 3 years now. And I dubt anyone saw it working here. No one knows anything about it and its german. GERMAN!? That isn’t a human language!! Who understands that s***?
So I came back to work today in the rain and all my clothes are drying home becouse I washed them out yesterday. So basically I’m in my pajamas… now wet pajamas… Nothing Is packed yet, cleaning is in half and I need to go to my relatives tonight.
And if this isn’t enought the only WinXP CD I could get today is giving me a blue screen after start up…
And I can’t come up with anything to the theme… I’m so sad now.
Edit: actually I’m leaving this s*** here. Im in wet pajamas in a cold office for 3 hours now. I’m freezin’. That’s it I’m going home.
OK! I’ve talked with my boss just about 10 mins ago and he sad that I can go home this weekend. So basically it means my work here is officially done and I can participate in the competition. Sadly I haven’t got internet here in my house and have a lot to do prior to moving home. This means I’ll do a post on sunday from home with the game or the excuse in it.
Good game making LD #22!
Edit: I’ve forgotten to mention that I just downloaded Processing. So I’ll see it for the first time when I start coding the game.
Edit2: It seems that I need to come back to my workplace at 3:00 and pirate the internet from my 3DS find out what is the Theme… or I just wait for my brother to wake up at 13:00 and ask him to check it for me…
Tonight maybe I can talk to my boss and get to know if I’m in this round or not. My work here at the university is done from my part and if my boss say that I don’t need to be here next week, then I can tell my fater to help me move back home on friday or saturday. So I can make something in the short amound of time I’ll have.
BattleToys for time critical developing:
Gimp, sfxr, Processing and if it’ll have sound, than some freeware tracker.
Oh brother I can’t wait for my boss… XD
