“Progress is slow, but I’m in it for the long haul.”
I’ve committed about 6 of the 29 hours that have elapsed so far to this project. It’s coming along nicely, and I believe it’ll be complete. Although it will be scaled back from my original vision, both themes will be present, along with the featured mechanic:
This non-game does not use mouse or keyboard to play. You will use the webcam to control your character.
My initial tests are excellent, and it’ll be what I polish up and test on Sunday.
The “board” represents locations in different timezones (-12 UTC to 12 UTC). The color selection is semi-random. The possible color selection is based on if it is night or day in that timezone, and then some light/dark influences are added based on the closeness to midnight or noon.
Each hour that you open the app, you should see a small change in the day/night border (obvious transition between blue and green/brown). If you open it with a larger window (6-12 hours), then you’ll see a huge shift in the colors.
More to come tomorrow.
