Last week I started a rogue-like, my first one in this direction and also my first game using LÖVE2d. Only today I found this Sports competition and thought to myself, this rouge-like is a lot like cross country running, except for the slaying of foes and maybe a few hundert runners around you.

So, I'm branching my fresh game Servants of Blood http://servantsofblood.tumblr.com and make a running game out of it. I do hope Cross Country Running is a proper sport for TigSource.



Features planned:
  • √ Race with waypoints
  • √ At least 100 runners around you
  • Audience in the 1000s, just don't run them over or you loose points
  • Beautiful waterholes, dirt pits, streams and other annoying landscape
  • √ Manage your physical resources by setting your speed
  • √ Maps of 10,000 x 2,000 will make a race last for hours
  • A Public bus service for cheaters
  • √ Cheap finish screen
  • √ Better finish screen
  • Country must go up and down
  • Obstacles like trees, rivers, cliffs, snack bars
(Those marked √ are done, obviously)

Download:
* Very latest dev version: https://github.com/TomK32/servantsofblood/archive/cross-country.zip (rename to cross-country.love and run love cross-country.love

Releases

* Windows x86: https://github.com/downloads/TomK32/servantsofblood/Cross%20Country%20Runner-0.1.0-1_win-x86.zip
* Windows 64 bit: https://github.com/downloads/TomK32/servantsofblood/Cross%20Country%20Runner-0.1.0-1_win-x64.zip

Didn't do anything last week but this week I made good progress, added AI runners that follow the waypoints and are hard to beat.

Literally hours to go but I'm making good progress on a leader board.

Also playing the game has become real fun, it's quick and a little fuzzy about counting the waypoints which makes it easier to win. Download the dev version if you want to have a try.

Yes, my first game in LÖVE and I like it very much because I have a 100% scripting languages background. Next game will be in löve again.

Hi, I'm trying to play this game but I have no idea what to do. Do you have some instructions on how to play?

On the top right you have a yellow box with something like SE or S or NW indicating the direction you have to move using your arrow keys. This will lead you to the next waypoint from there to the next until you reach the finish.Alternatively you can follow the crowd of other runners but that's not a strategy to win this game.

Then the game isn't working for me as the arrow keys don't do anything. I'm on a Windows 7 machine if that's any help.
