Good Idea – Almost no time to be done…

So, in the last 26 hours I have developed from scratch my engine, just now has:

– Load maps with 3 layers.

– Animated tiles.

– font.png to Text.

– Uses SFML the best way I know.

– Animated Entities.

But there is more to be coded like:

– Inventory system.

– Dialog system.

– Load/Save System.

– Event System.

– More options for the map.

I will do my best to get everything done, but then the history I thought is very extensive and need a lot of work so…

Here is what I have used in the last 26 hours:

  • Visual Studio 2012 Express Edition
  • SFML 2.1 (From scratch)
  • Graphics Gale

This is madness and not, like they said, Tomorrowland… hahaha  Expecting everyone is having fun! I just can’t sleep so here I am coding XD

Wife says “you are the villain!” (and I kinda am)

We’ve just brought our premature baby home and I decide to start @McFunkyPants’ 12in12 challenge early? What am I thinking? My wife will definitely say “you are the villain!” Well I’m in for as much as I can manage! Perhaps 6 hours over 2 days?

Awoke for 4am feed, whipped out phone and checked for the theme…

“You are the villain”


– Hungry Goat (stealing food which means everything, like clothes, etc)
– Stop Santa! (you try to stop… Why am I explaining this one?)
– Present Thief (wanna all da pwesents!)
– Jack Frost in stop the World! / Traffic game jam (freeze things to cause mayhem)
– Snowflake uniqueness answer (how do they each become unique? They fight!)
– Oil Co Exploits (Arctic Edition)
game lose screen shows Oil Co boss saying “but <player name>, you asked for cheap fuel, electricity, plastic, etc. I was just trying to make you happy. Aren’t… *YOU* the villain?”
Game play area shrinks as polar cap melts.
Ozone layer hole shrinks as greenhouse gases released. (believe that’s the South Pole over Antarctica – is exaggeration forgivable?)

Ok, that has legs and seems topical given they’re doing this right now so…

Game style potentials:
– Casual minesweeper-like
Click/Touch areas to try them for resources before time expires.
– Something actually innovative!
Sorry ego, gotta finish so not this time!
– Resource planning / building?
Extract maximum oil, minerals, etc within play time.
– Tower defence?
Seals, penguins, polar bears, Greenpeace (and the occasional Easter egg goat / kitten / Santa Claus / Elf?) arrive and try to stop you mining.

Hmm, could do all of these incrementally and whatever makes it in is it!

Right back to sleep in case subconscious mind comes up with better!


P.s. Disclaimer in case not obvious to RSPCC, baby & mum are getting priority 😉

Bouy frenzy

Crazy buoys flying all over the place. I got them under control now though. Next step is to close the buoy divider and get points for decontaminated oil spills.

Strange bread

Hotdogs! Yeah, I forgot to buy the bread. Toast it is. Works.

My final game for realz. Text based, turn based defense game.

This is the final version of my game. It’s probably, hard, cruel, unbalanced and difficult. It’s wierd and not just because it makes no sense to make a text based defense game like this.
