And so it begins. Normally I use Ruby/Gosu but decided to try something new… Goal for evening #1 (LD started at 9pm for me) was to get a base app created and deployed using Sinatra, JavaScript/CoffeeScript, HTML5/Canvas, SASS, and HAML. Success!


Time to get some rest. More fun tomorrow!

I’ve made some progress!
I have the tile map drawn, and a sprite that can move around the map!

Also with basic collisions!

Working Together Alone

Hey everyone! My roommate, Alissa, and I are participating in the jam together. Alissa’s an artist, and I’m a designer. We’re looking at using either Stencyl or Game Maker – whichever one we find works best for what we want to do.

At first when we heard the theme, we weren’t quite sure what to do with it. After voting earlier, there were a couple of other themes that we were really excited for, but we couldn’t think of much for alone… But then we took a drive to pick up some snacks and energy drinks! On the way, we passed by a bakery, which gave us the idea to make a game about a lonely little cupcake. We got back, started writing down ideas, drawing some concepts, and now we’ve got a pretty good direction.

I’m starting work on level design, while Alissa is continuing work on her cupcake art. Oh, and we’re thinking about ways to incorporate a kitten easter egg, as well…

Good luck everybody!

The plan

This time around, I think I’m going to take it easy on the graphics and sound. Instead, I’ll focus on pure story. My plan: a multiplayer, online puzzle game. I’ll be working in PHP, with a bit of JS front-end. Maybe some html and css as a template. I have some interesting ideas for something atmospheric, and connected to the theme :) Hope to start serving things up to outside users in short order!

And here we go!

I’m getting started a bit late… got caught up in an important meeting at Occupy Tallahassee.  Alone is the theme, eh?  …I kind of hate it.  We had “It’s dangerous to go alone…” only 2 LDs ago!  Ah well, I’ll work with it regardless!

Just realized I forgot to state what tools I’m working with here!  This LD, like my previous two, will be completed with Python, using PyGame, for all programming.  For sfx I’ll probably use bfxr, though last time I also used a cheap mic and made some crude noises of my own.  Music will probably not exist.  Art is MS Paint, with the possibility of some minor Gimp work of I want to get fancy.  That should be about it!  I did ABSOLUTELY NO PREP for this, so I have almost no food or drink in my house, and many other inconveniences.  GRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!  Brute force game design!

Good luck everybody!

This is the first draft idea before I go to sleep :)
The king find himself alone in the middle of lots of people and fall in bad dream where, he needs to fight his way back to happiness, facing monsters that are himself. During the journey he will find items that can motivated him and make him walk faster and jump higher.
At the end the king will find himself WITH the ppl around him.

will use a platform as game mechanics, and now will go to sleep !! :)
see u tomorrow !!

What’s all this talk of kittens?

AAAAAAH!~  Why is LD always on the most weirdly-timed weekend?  The first time I participated I was in the middle of moving!  Last time I was just about to start a new job!  This time… Sunday is my birthday!  Yet…. I’M IN!  That’s right, folks – I’m spending my birthday making an LD entry!~

So… Like many people, my life tends to be pretty busy, and I don’t much keep up with the LD community between compos.  I wasn’t even able to participate in voting this time, except for the final round… and there’s some kind of [joke?] drama about kittens?  Fill me in, eh?  Or not.  Just give me a theme, and I’ll give you a game!  ‘Cause that’s how I roll!  See you in the IRC room… if my client ever loads?
