    Day 1 Nearly Up – Not So Much Progress

    So here’s how my day went:

    Alarm clock did not wake me. Apparently, it did go off, but I slept through it. Woke up at 11AM, 4h later than I wanted to.

    I’ve been working for 4h now, since I lost 4h this morning due to oversleeping.

    I have a dark gray rectangle that sits there and does nothing. I have a tiny amount of work done on a tilemap for terrain. I have no art or sound. I don’t even know how to do sound in HTML5; I’ve never done it before. Art will take me several hours at least. Some of the traps are things I’ve never implemented before, such as crushing traps.

    I’ve got low hopes that I’ll finish. I’m determined to get something submitted. It might now be a presentable game, and it probably won’t score well.

    I’m really angry with myself right now. I lost too much time this morning and now I’m paying for it.

    I don’t know whether to sleep tonight. I know that if I do, I’ll oversleep horribly on Monday morning, just like I overslept this morning. This really sucks.

    I’m sorry to be so negative, but I’m really angry with myself about oversleeping and getting so little done.

    I’m unlikely to succeed. I want to clarify that. I’ll fight on, but I’m starting to lose hope. I’ll be happy to have something playable at this point.

    No peace or love this time, too bummed out,

    - Henry
