Failed to make a game. Made a screen of tanks speeding across the screen and shooting targets for all eternity instead. Having serious problems sleeping. Just not my weekend, I suspect.
Perhaps I’ll reflect on this deeply another time, but for now I’m happy enough to call this a failed experiment. The key, I suspect, is to start by thinking of something that sounds fun or intriguing to play, not something that seems technically and thematically valid, but is barely a game.
Best of luck to all of you still plugging away, and also those who have been diligent enough to finish a game already!
Picture for posterity: TANKS! (If anyone wants to watch some tanks, https://dl.dropbox.com/u/12753061/LD24Haxe.swf )
