Good point. I uploaded it to my Youtube

Anyway I'm glad you are participating. You should make a topic, though,  to register your entry :)


I still want to make at least a proper battle system before I create a topic.




DJ Omnimaga

Oh I see now, and thanks for the video :)

By the way will the main character be a walrus? :P Also I think you should maybe use 20x15 maps instead of 40x30, else the tiles look very small. You could probably use scaled up tiles. Also perhaps get rid of the blur on scaled up graphics like the pok├ęball. Looks nice so far, though :D

Scipi

I set the filtering mode to nearest neighbor interpolation, so that should take care of the blur. And once I make my own terrain sprites, I can see about making them larger.

I'm kind of fond of my Tao sprite :3




DJ Omnimaga

I would be fine even if you used low res sprites personally. After all, lots of people here like retro-gaming and old-school games. :P

You could make a walrified Tao :trollface:

Also is Tao there in reference to The Mysterious Cities of Gold? Because one of the main characters has a yellow vest and is called Tao :P

By the way, remember that there is less than two weeks left (10 days actually, if I count correctly), so hurry up, and remember that demos are also accepted :)

You should try to make posts that aren't just smiley posts in the future :P

10 days left! How are people going along on their projects? Update your threads with progress!

Myself, I'm almost done with a high-score implementation, then adding a title screen and Game Over screen.
My main worry this year was not as much about people starting at the last minute, although some finally did, sort-of. But rather people focusing way too much on adding many features in their games, even if some aren't really necessary for a game created under such limited time frame. Of course I'm not saying to do like Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing, but hence why I kept suggesting people to not go overboard (especially RPGs). :)


Good luck everyone!

I hope that I can start with sprites soon. The platform required so much work and research. With some luck, I can finish some good game in time.

DJ Omnimaga

8 and an half more days to learn and 12 minutes to make a full game is not a lot of time to finish before deadline though :P

alexgt

If anything I can just post it as something like a parkour game :trollface: if I don't get enemies complete which I hope I can... either way it won't be very polished xD

DJ Omnimaga

I hope you don't give up, though. Something like a puzzle platformer where you just need to reach the end of the stage without dying would be nice too.
