Hi! I'm making a game about being a tree. My friend Ghost of Electricity is doing the music and sounds -- check out his work on bandcamp
, it's pretty good stuff
Currently I'm calling the game
How to Be a Tree
Basically, I just added physics to an L-System demo, and found it was just really fun to play around with, so I've been trying to make it into a game.
It's tricky to control, but if you know what you're doing you can start to really leap around.
The movement also lends itself to shimmying through narrow spaces:
Lately I've been focusing on adding other characters, like these little dudes that you can push around:
The dudes keep giving me Box2D woes; I'll probably have to start a technical thread about them.
They just keep getting stuck on the tree
And I just added these mouths last week:
I'm hoping to add a bunch more entities in the coming weeks.
I'm also hoping to let players play as other tree shapes, too. Technically almost any L-System
can be played, but it's a challenge to find ones that look good and play well.
Anyway, that's probably enough giant bandwidth-hogging gifs for now. I'd love to hear thoughts and suggestions!
