Tiny Adventures In SPACE – Postmortem

So, where to begin? First off, I’m really glad (GLaD, even) that I got to participate with so many awesome people! You’re all great! 😀

I made the game Tiny Adventures In SPACE. It’s a pretty simple ‘avoid-em-up’, with very odd things floating about in space. Overall, the experience was amazing. :)

What went right:

  • I finished :p (always a good sign)
  • I was pretty happy with my game
  • My game includes bacon :p
  • My work area was good
  • I took breaks, and managed to get decent sleep
  • I had coffee :p
  • I had fun on IRC and Twitter
  • I. HAD. FUN!

What went wrong:

  • I couldn’t come up with an idea at first
  • My idea was slightly too complex
  • My game actually has a few (small) know bugs
  • I wasted time on IRC and Twitter
  • No music in the game
  • Not very polished game in general

All in all, a VERY good experience. I look forward to playing more of your games, and will definitely take part next time as well!

And here is a link to my game:

And suddenly… I was finished

I submitted. And I’m exhausted. And yet I’m ready for more! 😀

Check my game out here:

It has sound effects but no music, no effects, and programmer art. But I’m happy with it, so that’s all that matters. :)

I plan to continue work on it, and release a post-compo version (or three).

Good luck to everyone. It was a great Ludum Dare!

Sound and music

Well, I have sounds done now. I just need to figure out some music, maybe. Not sure exactly what I’m going to do.

Today is going to be all about adding the ending “cutscreen”, and polish.

And, of course, sound and music. We’ll see how it goes.

23 hours left!

My game is mostly done. Because the last update didn’t have any, here’s a screenshot!I thought of a name too! “Tiny Adventures in Space”. I’m mostly done with this, then will come lots of polish.

Irish beer stew tastes good. Who knew? :p

Anyway, I finally thought of a use for the “interest” mechanic: ship speed.

I also add the sixth (and last) planet. Now I think I might take a quick nap before more work.

I now have four planets done! I’m not sure how many more I’ll do, but I’m thinking six or so.

More stuff, still no name

I need a name. Not sure what it’s going to be yet.

Anyway, here’s a new pic:

I’m getting there, slowly but surely.

Bacon! In the game!

Woohoo, bacon! I’m thinking about lots of food and other things to collect to increase your “interest” level. Not sure what that will do yet.

Now I want bacon…

A gameplay screen

I added a starfield and fixed some stuff. But now I’m tired and will try to get some sleep. See you all later!

Ideas and stuff

Those circles are planets

I didn’t like the chosen theme at first, but I think I’ve warmed to it a little.

My idea is this: A small creature from a small planet wants to explore space (that smallest circle is his). it will be a kind of “Avoid-em-up”. The screen you see is where you choose a planet to travel to.

All I have is that screen and basic movement and asteroid spawning.

LD 23 Warmup

Presenting: 99 Keys!

99 Keys is a game about jumping and collecting keys. Simple, but it will take a lot of patience to go through all 99 keys!

Page is here:

I’m feeling warmed up! 😀

I’m totally in for LD 23!

Just under 10 days left, I’m overly excited! This will be my third time participating, not including miniLD 33.

I plan to use:

  • Flash and FlashPunk (for the code)
  • GraphicsGale (for the graphics)
  • Maybe sfxr (for the bleep bloops)
  • Coffee (for the sanity)

I’m not sure what kind of game I’ll be making. I do know that it won’t be another shooter! :p
