Introducing Captain BearBeard

Hey people, thought I would do that cool “Here’s my progress so far” post.

This is a screenshot of Captain BearBeard, our entry for the Jam.

Basically you’re a peaceful bear that seeks a honeypot in a ship full of nasty pirates that want to kill you. See the small parrot up here ? He probably is the most difficult enemy to handle.

But you don’t fight like a regular bear. You fight by bouncing with your big belly. Because, well… it’s unconventional.

Currently the game runs well, the gameplay mechanics are ready and tested. I hope it won’t feel laggy once uploaded on the web (it’s a Flash game).

You can already see some features are missing, and the scene feels quite lonely. Soon the bear and pirates will be animated, and the user interface ready.

Good luck to everyone, and may your game be as cool as you want it to be !

It’s called “The Heaving Depths” and it’s mainly about my fear of dark spots in the water when I go swimming. But cleverly disguised as an RPG and a love story between two girls.

You’ll see!
I barely got any sleep, my code started breaking apart at the seams after a while, but I kept at it.

If you play it, and feel the urge to tell me what you liked or disliked about it, please do, I’m all ears. I’m probably going to finish this if there’s enough interest, so it’d be cool if I made something you guys like to play.

So, I did not complete anything for this Ludum Dare.  Maybe next time.

What Went Wrong

  • Could not come up with a good idea for the theme
  • Sick with a persistent headache all weekend
  • Debugging quirks in Unity took longer than expected

What Went Right

  • I liked what I made
  • The character controls feel good
  • The animation is kind of nice
  • I think it could have been kind of fun if I had a few more days

Now there’s enemies (at least superficially so), and they’re Dwarf Pirates. Dwarf Pirates often dwell in caves, and are the only real natural enemy of the Cave Ninjas.
