Just a thought, what if we were asked to make a timelapse before making the game itself? since, the theme is reversed? O.o haha


 

Anyways, I just want to share the first part of my timelapse series in making the Adventures of Esrever Wild, my entry to the miniLD 57 :D

It’s been fun and challenging, this miniLD, and I want to know what you guys think :D

This was my first time making a game with such short notice, only getting to the jam late due to a packed work week. Here it is if you want to see it http://ludumdare.com/compo/minild-57/?action=preview&uid=49360

 

The crunch for time effected the game in a few ways, mostly the tutorials – which I think harmed the impact of the game overall.

Were I to go back and do it all again, there are three things I think I would do differently.

Don’t know what it will be called yet, but it should be fun to make!

Recorded a video for my MLD game

So, um this is a short gameplay video I made of my game. I am still working on it, and will be posting more videos later on. For now you can download it at asado.itch.io/haz

The game looks quite jumpy in the video, but it is quite smooth in real life.

My creation for MiniLD #57

Hi!

This is my first LD (well, it is actually a Mini LD), and after being told about this by a friend (who also challenged me to make a creation), I only knew three things:

1. You have to make a game within a week

2. The topic is “REVERSED”

3. The only rule is “Can I? YES”

After taking a look to some other creations, I think that the topic was meant to be understood as “reversed in time”. Well, my game is made by a different approach.

It is a simple platform&puzzle game, but with a new mechanic that came to me while thinking how should I understand the “Reversed” topic: You can only go to the right, but you can use mirrors, which will REVERSE [almost] all the world.

There are only a few levels, but it’s as long as I have been able to create within this time.

Plot

Your nameis Modnar. You are the only member alive of an ancient secret order, called Redro Terces, who are known by their interest on mirrors magical properties. After arriving to a castle, you finally found the book you were looking for.

You tried some spells, and suddenly you realize that something went wrong.

“Let’s get out of here”, you think.

Controls

  • Move Right: Right arrow
  • Move Left: YOU CAN’T
  • Jump: Up arrow
  • Use mirror: Space
  • Restart level: R

Download

As it’s written in Java, you will need the JRE installed. If Chrome detects it as a potentially harmful file, feel free to dismiss it. However, I ensure it does not contain malware in any form (in addition, I will Open Source it in a few days).

 

As I see, you have to write a Post Mortem, so there I go (sorry for not having read the recommendation of writing it before creating the game):

POST MORTEM

I have learned a lot while developing this.

It is made in Java, using Slick2D library, which 8 days ago I only knew for its name, I had never used it before. In its initial state, the game was only made with green, red and yellow rectangles, and when all the mechanics were done, I spent some time designing a few levels, and had to rush a lot in order to add some graphics (I had help with this).

After having the graphics done, I spent an hour trying to add some plot to it, so at least it would make the user feel a little interested about what is going on.

 

Bugs & Problems while creating it

The first one I had to face was that I had no idea about how to use Slick2D. Thanks to youtube, heaven StackOverflow and some examples I started figuring out how to do certain basic things, such as making the player able jump.

Then some software design issues came, such as if anidations, design patterns… and finally, exporting the jar was such an adventure, but I finally got it!

Well, at least I ended up with a decently looking game, which I consider my first finished graphic game ever.

Credits:

– Depth: Character, Mirror and Door design

– JRoig24: Graphic design (wall tiles)

– Raindrinker: Challenging me to do this

 

Thanks for reading and trying!

Great theme for this Mini LD! I think I’ll just reverse my development process and start by doing graphics and sound and do the programming and add some gameplay at the end. I hope time is on my side.

I’ll use my usual tools (Dart, etc.) but I’ll use WebGL for the first time in a Jam. I started learning WebGL about a month ago, so I hope it’ll work out. But I’ll still do something 2D.

You’ll probably be able to play my super awesome game here.

I’m in!

I’ll be trying the MiniLD for the first time, I think the theme is very interesting! ;D

I’ll be using Unity, Pyxel and bfxr.
