    Don’t have much time this weekend but thought of something silly I wanted to see if I could do last night.  So this morning I took two hours to throw this little initial prototype together.  It’s still missing a lot of gameplay type stuff but I wanted to have something to play around with regarding the main player character and to use it to refine my ideas.

    Early prototype - Click to play

     

    Basic idea is a risk/reward mechanic overtop of a basic mouse skills game. The player decides how much/where they want to suck from the body parts. Those arm hairs wiggle around. The more the player sucks the more erratic they move but I’ll likely increase a score multiplier. So the idea would simply be to guide your mosquito to the body part areas you want to get blood from and then escape without getting slapped.

    Here is the current earliest test prototype showing what I got finished in my first two hours here. I’m using Flash CS5.5 and ActionScript 3.0.
