Our Progress So Far

Sunday, August 28th, 2016 10:35 pm

Hi There, it’s Sunfury!  :)

We didn’t post anything yet cuz we were hard in the developing proccess,
To sum up, we could be in a way deeper progress of a game. (everyone says that? ><)

Our force for this ludum dare contains:
Rom and Tom-Programmers sitting next to each other and working non-stop (full time)
Artur-Pro Designer (when he doesn’t work)
Ilya-Pro Designer (when he doesn’t work)

Our First Day:

We thought about making a physic game using levers/swing as ancient technology, this is what we came up with:

Kingeat by HealTheIll

All tough it came up kinda fun and funny, we saw no potential in keep developing it (it may be too repetitive)

We reconsidered our options, thinking about more ancient technologies and we came up with pulleys (video) .
We decided to take the risk and test those pulleys.

after wasting  like 5 hours thinking about these pulleys and how we gonna make them intersting we crashed.
Day 2:

We wasted most of day 2 testing and trying to implement the most fun yet realistic physics and gameplay.
Working with Game Maker using Box2D, we tried using built in pulley  joints, but we found it too basic for our needs.

after hours of work in the end of day 2, we ended up with this:

You play as a well-known architect in Egypt, you’re there to solve their problems and well, mainly help them build their pyramids.
you do it by stretching ropes through the map.
The more we played with these mechanics the more we saw what a great potential this game has, hopefully we will think of some great puzzles tomorrow

Day 3 Plans:

-polishing (physics, effects, sounds…)
-challanging puzzles
-combining designs

hopefully, we’ll finish this game and make it somthing we’re proud of and hopefully somthing you’ll like too  !

if you guys can think of any interesting ideas to make our game better we would LOVE to hear them and give you credits of course if we use them  :)
Yours truly, SunFury
