B is for ‘Busy’. Also, ‘Bah!’

Turns out that everything is against me this weekend. Visiting people, and I have some assignments I need to finish for next week too. Bah! I’ll have a go at working on my game anyway, as I do have an idea I want to try:

Some guy, or a race of some guys, have kidnapped all the islands, which are thus illogically floating. You must fly your airship (yay, airship!) to islands, where you then battle some guys, stop the whatever-it-is that makes the island float, and it falls back in the sea with a satisfying plop as you escape on your airship again. Rinse and repeat.

That’s the basic idea, but there are a few ways I could go with it… Originally I was thinking trading between islands. Or maybe there’s a shop you need to go to to buy ammo/weapons/ health packs/etc. And randomised levels, but I always try level generators in LD and they always take most of my time and turn-out awful. 😛

I was gong to give Flashpunk a go with this too, which I have no experience in yet.

So yeah, doomed to failure. Good luck everyone else!
