MiniLD #34 Postmortem

*edit, added hardcore mode to the game

I finally finished a LD game, it’s classic Pong with half of the screen cut off to fit the theme Aspect.
Is it normal to do a Post-Mortem for a mini-LD? I’ll do it anyway.

The good:

  • Easy graphics, was done with it very fast.
  • I learned new techniques to accomplish a couple of codes in an easier way.
  • I have all the programs I need to finish a game and a nice workflow.

The bad:

  • Diablo 3 and Firefall BETA. I couldn’t leave it alone so I had to make my game in the time I had when my friends weren’t online.

Overall:

I had fun making Pong which is one of my favourite childhood games. The theme was good and it gave me a lot of ideas.
I choose for Halfpong because it uses the theme to add difficulty to the game.

I hope to complete more LDs in the future!

I’m in, but misread the rules…

Okay, so I might have read “8×64″ instead of “18X64″ and now the challenge is even bigger than it would have been.

I’m not really far yet, and I don’t think the end result will have more than 8 hours in it, but I’ll try to finish something.
