Badass Frog postmortem – the ‘meh’ factor

After my LD #11 ‘Minimalist’ entry was voted “most innovative” game, I’ve been trying to pride myself as “that guy that makes innovative games”. So I thought long and hard about the theme for LD #13, “Roads”, trying to come up with something innovative. But the creative juices just weren’t flowing, and it didn’t happen (I’d also just bought Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip for Wii, which was taking time away from ‘designing time’). After 12 hours, with no good ideas for a game I was actually enthused about making, I decided to make a simple Frogger clone – at least this way I could hone my Processing skills, and learn the ins-and-outs of Mobile Processing.

Some thoughts about developing for mobile devices

Turns out there is a whole “other world” of mobile development that I just hadn’t really thought all that hard about. (more…)

I’m a big fan of Python and of PyGame. But I’ve been doodling with Processing for several years now, too, and it’s idea of “sketches” kind of lends itself to a competition like this. For anything more substantial, I’d definitely rock it out on Python… and I still might. But the ease of getting simple things up and running on Processing is really appealing, as is the rock-simple cross-platform capabilities. It’ll depend on the theme and the concept that comes out of it, I suppose. We’ll see in about 35 minutes from now.
