Kraken pool party post-mortem

It’s party time 😀

“Kraken Pool Party” is a game about a schizophrenic Kraken. Each player controls a different tentacle: may the most tentacle-y tentacle win 😀

As predicted the game looks nothing like my mockup 😉

A lot of the initial features didn’t meet the cut, but since we applied McFunkpantsrolling MVP philosophy we were able to fall back on our most recent working version about 30 minutes before the end of the jam (at 2:30AM French time) and submit with no stress :)

To be precise the game ends after a fixed time rather than when the Kraken is killed by the enemies. The enemies don’t even attack, and no sailors fall into the water (so there’s nothing to eat). We did manage to implements all the important features though (moving, grabbing, smashing, throwing, title, score screen, etc): it’s a complete game albeit a limited one :)

 

So this kind of agile, iterative development strategy can work extremely well, it just means spending a lot of time and energy guiding the project, and a considerable amount of discipline (because we all want to implement all the features)!

Implement all the things!

Looking forward to playing your games 😀

Kraken pool party!

Beneath the surface, the Kraken awakens!

We’re making a party game where each player controls a different tentacle of the Kraken. So basically we’re ripping off Crawl hardcore 😉 Also Death Worm. Only it’s multiplayer so it’s cool.

The game will probably look absolutely nothing like this (click to zoom):

Kraken pool party, a party game about krakens and parties.

The Kraken can block projectiles and smash ships, and move itself around my grabbing the sea floor. It can also pick up animals and sailors and put them in its gaping maw of death!

 

 

We’re using Unity 3D because we’re lazy.

It’s been a full year since my last LD…  ::sigh::  But it’s great to do it once again!

This time I made Runaway Money, a party game about being invisible and stealing money.  Sounds kinda fun, right?  Does it also sound kinda strange that a multiplayer game would use invisible players?  Yeah, me too.  I had to think a while to make sure it was possible.

As it turns out, it is and it’s pretty fun.  Give it a try with your friends!
