Fixed some bugs in slug so that mouse/fullscreen actually works now, and also fixed up my build system so that I could build a portable Linux executable (new build/src is here, if anyone’s interested). Assuming slug is “done” for now (haha), this means i don’t have to compile anything again for the rest of the compo, just writing Lua scripts and automatically have everything work on both Linux and Windows. Mac support would be nice too, but I don’t have a mac, so.

Now, time to get started on the actual game! I wish I had any good ideas. Guess I’ll just start making a platform engine and see where it goes from there…

I’m going to sustain myself exclusively on these things during the compo:


So, exploration. Not sure what I’m going to do yet, but it’s probably going to be a platformer of some sort. Kinda want to do something ala Monty on the Run or Dizzy, but we’ll see.

Right now though I’ll go fix some bugs in slug: Mode switching corrupts the graphics, and mouse coordinates aren’t scaled right. Might add some new features too, though I suppose I should wait until I actually need them now that the compo has started and all. In fact, I’m not even sure I’m going to use slug at all, might try to go for a Flash game again instead. Time to  make up my mind =]

Oh, and here’s some eggs I had for breakfast:

My Lua game engine thing: I call it “slug” [update: hit the slug tag for newer versions]

A bit rough around the edges and messy code, but it seems to work for what it does.  (Here’s a readme.)
