Hey folks- finished my game:

CONCEPT:

You’ve received 4 scrambled images of possible cryptids:

Use your Crypto-Computer ™ to unscramble them!

You have 1 minute to complete your task before the
evidence is lost forever.  You will receive a
30 second bonus for each cryptid you discover.

Each cryptid image is made up of 4 individual pieces.
Unscramble each cryptid by clicking on the numbered boxes
to rotate a distinct piece of the puzzle image.

* Left mouse button for clockwise rotation.
* Right mouse button for counter-clockwise rotation.

Enjoy!

Cryptozoology update…

Here is a current screenshot from my simple cryptozoology puzzle game.  It is coming along fairly well schedule wise.  I have 3 of 4 crpytid puzzles completed and just need to draw one more so that is good.  I still need sounds and maybe score a little game soundtrack for it too later.  Need a menu, perhaps highscores just for practice coding that and still searching for a title I like.

I’m glad that I finally picked a game scope that allowed me to have something playable early on and really gave me time for polish, tuning, and asset creation.  As this is my 4th LD (2 full, 2 mini) maybe I’m FINALLY learning something about scope.  😉  If anything, I probably went too far on the side of simple but we shall see.

First day progress

First, I present you an awesome screenshot!

Second, you try to figure out what my game is about!

Third, I tell you! The basic setup in my game is: You’re a photographer hunting for specific properties in strange animals. You might for example be given the task of taking photographs of creatures with the legs of an elephant and the tail of a lion. You zoom around the savannah trying to find animals that are weird enough to make the cover of a magazine and if you manage to fill the film with great material the score will also be godlike!

So far I’ve got the base for the creature creation and camera. Tomorrow I’ll probably first work on identifying which animals are in the picture you just took. Then I’ll just have to slap on some scoring stuff and more content (as you can see the animals aren’t very different yet :P) and presto!

it’s a crypto critter mystery!
