Satanic warlord bear of unholy pink caverns of gayness Idea:
A bear, silly hat, gun and a knife. Wake up from a cave from hibernation over winter; find the world in the state it is. Survive.
- three layers of procedurally generated jump/run action
* allow jumping up and down on layers (just like the "dog game".. two years ago? in here :3)
- day/night cycle, 1min day, 2min night
* not so many enemies
* enemies are weak
* find food -> health
* lot of enemies
* strong enemies
* hide / survive (caves?)
What I've got?
I designed everything on paper just a minute ago, got the level algorithm down that'll allow me to generate the level on the fly and allow for continous action until you die. Code-wise nothing really. I got a vague game idea which I'm going to prototype and if it works even to some extent, I'm going through with it. If not... I'll bin it and not think of programming ever again. *sob*Will I do this?
Not sure, got quite few things to do buuut... if I do, I'm going to do a "daily vlog", meaning, when I program and end it for that session I do a quick vlog, show what I've got and tell what I've done. Just to get more dirt thrown on my face and just to be different from others. Fuck yeah. Obviously, devdiary too but mainly links to my vlog. On vlog I would show bits of code, footage of what I've got and all that. Simple HD screen cap.Plan of attack besides stupid vlog?
Not work on it daily, no. Absolutely not. I don't have the time and I don't think that'll keep my production rate as high as possible. Maybe 2-3 times a week. Work longer periods at once and have a plan ready always on what I'm going to work on. This way try achieving as much as possible and spend the time in between just relaxing, thinking of the game and how to implement things to be ready for next "sprint" -like session.
At the end of every session; release code and all related solutions files and such. Share it as much as possible. Just to look as stupid as possible. Don't even bother with "correct"/"real" solutions to problems, just hack it to work the way I want and get it to moving state asap. With the cost of re-usability and code readability. How do you rate the success?
If someone is kind enough to say it is/was "interesting" I will be forever happy and consider the effort spent not wasted. (wtf confusing sentence)Final thoughts from me?
--> nngh.. I want to throw this out so badly but.. hmm Maybe I will.
