Let’s Roll

Hi fellow entrants

I’m feeling a little under the weather at the moment but that’s not going to stop me taking part! I have decided to go low-tech this time though, to make things a little easier for myself. So I’m planning to make a very simple command-line text adventure in plain old Python.

The theme is an awkward one, in my opinion, because it pretty much dictates a backstory rather than possible game mechanics, and all that springs to mind at first are artsy, depressing, story-based exploration affairs. I did manage to think further than that, so if like me you’re struggling for ideas a bit, how about these:

  • Alone doesn’t necessarily mean physically alone (Nobody understands me! I’m the last of my people!)
  • The aim might be to become alone (Hounded by papparazi? Defending your hermit cave? Looking for a quiet place to revert back to your gelatenous state?)

Anyway, my tools of choice are:

  • Python
  • Curses, maybe
  • Nano
  • Paper
  • PyInstaller

My goal this weekend is just to finish something, even if it totally sucks.

Yawn… aw it has already begun

Am I using the right button ?
First Ludum Dare ever, ‘will see what will happend !

So let’s begin.
Theme : alone.

To create the feeling of lonelyness, why not first doig other dissapear ?
Use some contrast, ambiance… Idea for gameplay, delete others ?

Hum… Viewed from top, some personnages, something about thoughts and memorie… Lost.
Aww, no concrete gameplay idea, I will start drawing some people to forget.
