Also, I wanted to have some kind of story completed by the end of the day, but it’s far from it, actually. It turns out it’s not that easy to create a compelling story in English, even if I feel I know the language pretty well. It’s probably because I didn’t really read that many books in that language and I lack practice when it comes to writing stories in language other than my own.
But hey, I’m not giving up – which means that today will be a little intense for me. I did acquire some respect for all the Twine authors out there, and got some interesting ideas for my own text engine (if I ever come up with one), so while I cannot aim for high notes with my game, I hope it will at least be entertaining.
Okay, okay. So I decided to try Twine this time (yep, I know next to nothing about it, so it must be a success, right?). I’m not native English speaker, so this might be a little hard story-wise, but interactive fiction fits my general idea and I wanted to try this for quite a long time. And LD seems like a great opportunity to test weird ideas, as always!
So the plan for today is to get a little more knowledge about Twine macros, custom scripts, etc., and have the story fleshed out. I was aiming for some more interactivity using custom JS, but we’ll see how it goes. Story is a minimum for today.
Tomorrow I should work on the graphics (want to have some), and music (I did play with MilkyTracker for a couple of hours).
The final aim is to have a IF game working on desktop as well as mobile.
Food photo ! A light lunch of ham, cheese & egg toastie, coffee and a banana.
I just eat a big pizza drunk some RedBull, put my best ninja cloths and plugged in my speakers. The night can begin !
Oh, and the game is fine, I almost finished the core of coding. Now I have to enhance the user experience and draw some sprites.
The idea is to do a minesweeper. You control a man that want to defuse all mines presents on the map. You have to search them with your metal detector and defuse them but be carefull, you have a limited number of defuse kit.
Have a good night or whatever you want depending on your timezone.
First, starting the day with a very English breakfast of tea and coco pops!
I stayed up late to find out what the theme is, so I came up with an idea or two while going to sleep. I’m going to do the easier of the two, and just make a small visual novel for fun. If I had more energy I would make an irreverent clone of Arcventure, an archaeology educational game which was on the Archimedes when I was a kid (most notable for you being able to dig up poop in the viking version!) But as I don’t have the time or energy, a small vn is what I’ll aim for.
