This is “Christmas 2”, a loose remake of a Pokemon Stadium 2 minigame. When it’s finished, you’ll compete with other players to suck up presents and shoot them into those bins (or other players). I felt that I need a break from Plok.
Right now, though, I need feedback on the performance and basic movement mechanics. So if you have Windows, try this out for me.
Sorry about the soundtrack. That won’t be in the final game.
Runs smooth. I have to wait maybe 40 seconds of gifts piling up before I get a significant fps drop. Just one small thing though. Sometimes if there’s like a small gift directly in front of your feet, you won’t suck it up and it blocks your character from moving in that direction.
I can’t make platformers for jack, but I still have like a week to figure it out and make a level or two.
Anyone else working on something for Halloween?
Instead of working on my game, or making my art look better, or getting started on music, I did something really stupid.
I bought Final Fantasy XI.
Started to work on a small farm game so I could have something running in the background while I worked on other things. Not planning on using any of the fruit/veggie sprites from earlier, trying to keep sprites really small/simple.
Clicking on the water droplet shows you the water levels of all the plants. Red = dry, yellow = good, blue (not pictured) = over watered. (Totally ripped off niqle’s pacman sprites and made them shitty!)
Shovel icon shows the grid in which you can make new farm plots. Can also use this to dig out dead plants, like the ones in the upper right.
Store tab to sell your fully grown plants (like the plants in the middle) and buy new seeds to grow more. Left one slot open as I think of what other simple veggie to add. I’ll add more as I go, but this is just a small pet project.
Made some veggie/fruit sprites. Maybe I’ll polish it up a bit more, add some extra fruits.
bransell, I hope you stick with excavation nation as the name. Makes me think of a commie construction-driven country. Which is great, lets me draw propaganda posters as fan art.
I’ve been at work on a small casual game for my niece. I haven’t really been using my time wisely, but 15 days since this mockup thing and I’m close to finishing up my first game.
^What it looks like now, minus the hasty front end + game over screen.
I don’t know what I’m doing
