So I’ve gotten all the utility code done. Pretty simple code, I just I had to test it to make sure it worked. Here is a screenshot of my terrible spaceship and city background.
Now I know I won’t get an award in presentation. >.> The background is one image, not really any kind of object or gameplay changer. Anyways, it’s pretty much nonfunctional, I just assembled this to see if the functions worked and to show you guys here at LD.
After a couple hours of frustration due to pyglet, I’ve decided to switch to pygame.
I don’t think it’s terrible or anything, it’s just because of some concepts I’m unfamiliar with. Also, I know pygame better than it.
As for the game, I’m going all out on this. I’ll post another blog post when I have something to show.
Currently I would say that I’m 99% done with the concept, 25-50% done with images, and 0% done with code.
I have a LOT to do.
So you’re an evil alien race who wants to conquer Earth. You have a spaceship that shoots freaking lazer beams. In the levels your goal is to kill all of the population in the city. Once you kill all the citizens and enemies you win that level. Now eventually you encounter tanks that fire bullets at you and move around. After a few more levels you encounter flying robots invented by human engineers. They give off streaks of energy that can hurt your health a lot.
I call this game Conquer The Planet. Now “all I need to do” is code and make graphics for it.
So the theme is greed. What a strange topic…
I honestly don’t know what game I should make. It will probably involve stealing items or cash from something. The weird thing about this competition is that every item must be unique.
This will be a challenge. (Especially since this is my first competition)
Oh, and the fact I know little about the game library I’m using.
This game will be coded in Python with pyglet. (Yayz!)
For those who are interested, I’m making this on Fedora 13. (which in fact I just installed today)
