My Cat on top of my Workspace :D

In case you haven’t heard of my recent obsession with kittens, click here.

Good luck to all, let’s have a great LD! ūüėÄ

P.S. That photo’s from a few years ago, here’s an updated deskphoto:

A lot more cluttered, eh? :D

Meet Chii! He has been performing a support role in the team since last Ludum Dare. Here you can see him PURRFECTING our art!

We are currently working on our idea, but we don’t feel like lifting the veil, yet.

Tune in for more updates in a while!

Here’s the command center, that’s right I code in a storage closet and that’s my cat Jack. ¬†His hobby is to keep me from using the keyboard¬†or mouse.

I also wanted to share this snippet of AS3 code that lets you choose a color and then convert pixels of that color to transparent pixels:

public static function MakeTransparent(source:*, color:uint = 0x00FF00FF) : BitmapData
// Get the bitmap data so we can fix it
var bitmapData:BitmapData
if (source is Class)
bitmapData = FP.getBitmap(source);
else if (source is BitmapData)
bitmapData = source;

// We aren’t use the transparent feature, hence the color
var bitmapDataNew:BitmapData = new BitmapData(bitmapData.width,
bitmapData.height, true, 0x00000000);
var pt:Point = new Point(0, 0);
var rect:Rectangle = new Rectangle(0, 0, bitmapData.width,
var transparent:uint = 0x00000000;
var maskColor:uint = 0x00FFFFFF;
bitmapDataNew.threshold(bitmapData, rect, pt, “==”, color, transparent, maskColor, true);

return bitmapDataNew;

Covers about 20 hours of actual work, most of which spent with a warm cat on my lap.

Post-mortem coming soon!!

Edit: thanks Galman for helping with the embed!

It’s all coming along pretty well, I’ll have some screenshots to show in a little while, but all the physics are finally cooperating… using a full 3d physics engine for a shmup might have been a bit much, but I think it’ll allow for some cool effects when I get to the polishing stage.


And since everyone seems to be posting pics of their cats:

Progress and Lunch

Ok, I have a window that opens and closes. It’s not that amazing, but it is a lot of boiler-plate code. I probably should have declared that I will be using some existing code to, you know, render a window.

Anyway, on to lunch. That’s right! It’s time for my award-winning peanut butter and pickle sandwich!

The award-winning peanut butter pickle sandwich!

I also had carrots, broccoli, grapes, and a peach.

Also, my cats are dealing with my LD-induced schedule fairly well:

Ok, here’s a screenshot of the single graphic I have drawn and the window I have got it appearing in:

I tried to get Felix to design me a game, but she hates the theme.

Because of that, I had to move to the living room.  So my new desk pic is:


Much assorted junk on the table including Wiimote and Gamecube controller.  PS2 controller on floor.  Just kidding about the cat РHuzzah always sits on my lap, it did not make me move.  Though it often makes my legs fall asleep.
