Well while the source is uploading, I thought I should talk about my game!
I used a awesome music creator: http://www.earslap.com/projectslab/otomata
with audacity to convert and shrink the file size, 20mb for a 2 min song dayum, reduced that to about 4mb.
Trusty old Paint.net to do my art.
The levels can be changed, if you edit the 4 files named level1.png level2.png level3.png level4.png and put them back where you found them, you can create your own levels for the game, I know one guy was looking forward to some randomly generated levels, but I failed, after a few hours trying to create random islands, I failed and decided a random square island, with 4 levels.
The music I made within a few minutes and thought it was awesome for the first few hours, now I have heard it about 10000000000000000000000 times on loop, while I live code the game, oh why did I not allow you to turn the sound off earlier!?!?!?!
Oh! This game is the first game I have actually completed! =D win win!
Graphics: might not be pro, but check!
story line to back it: check
sound: need like 1 more sound effect so
All that’s left to do is add more stuff that I can before I feel like submitting it =D running out of ideas to put in the game too, always a bad thing when that happens. be sure too look at my twitter to see the game in progress!
Well I am still here, and I have released some builds already and have said I released a newer version on twitter @PhasedTG
Well I remember reading a post by someone saying about how a lot of programmers are bad at art when they create games by them self, and yeah I am one of them! well this time I made my title screen, and I believe it looks awesome for a profressional terrible artist =)
I have a simple story line backing the game, but I wont release that till the final build =)
If you want to try it out, here it is CLICK HERE it is a web applet, so no need to download!
And after a few hours trying to figure out how to create good island generation, I failed, later or tomorrow ill give another go, if not, it will probly be either loaded, or a random square world, maybe the choice of generated, or a map? =D
Well, I have no idea what I am going to call it.
In the first 2 hours, I have made so far is
As you can see, the world currently is randomly generated, I am going to have to get better at random generation, make it look more awesome, then completely random, maybe? or should I keep it completely randomly generated?
I will release current builds of the game down and again on the this link HERE it is in Java, and I have made it a web applet, but you will be able to download the game at the end.
Follow me on twitter to know when I release the newest build of the game! @PhasedTG
Well I’m going to do my first Ludum Dare, and probably will enter the mini LudumDare just before the main event (maybe, not 100% sure).
I’m 17 and I am from Australia =D, don’t know if there are many Australian developers will be entering, but good luck!
I will be using Java, and probably will not use any other libraries then the default Java ones (aka no slick2D or any of them)
I will be using Eclipse to program in and use Paint.net to do the art.
I Will use the sfxr for the sound.
I will be using a Windows 7 computer, 12gb ram, 1gb graphics, 2.66ghz quad core (2 years old, still good =D) and may switch between my iMac, 3.4ghz quad core, 2gb graphics, 8gb ram
Hoping I can get a working version done, even if its not 100% complete by the due date =D.
