So happy I finished this!
It’s my first Ludum Dare, tho I’ve wanted to enter for a while. I’m on a new PC, so I had to download a lot of tools during the contest, which was quite annoying. Other things I’d do next time are:
- Get food in the house first! I survived on eggs and toast alone
- Plan tasks before starting
- Get a good idea?
I started off with few ideas, and hoped if I made a game jumping from island to island I could expand upon the theme a bit. I expanded on the game play, but the island theme itself was never explored any further, which is a little disappointing.
I’m glad I managed to do a title screen and music (first music I’ve done for a looong time), and the game has a sort of ending. I managed to work quite quickly as I stuck to a low resolution and only 16 colours. It’s a palette I’m quite used to, but I had to make some adjustments to add a skin tone in half way through drawing.
Off for some much needed sleep now!
Got my tiles all ready on a grid!
Also I mispelt my music link last time woops: here
Still need to do some kind of pick ups and other stuff, but I need to get on with actually coding now!
edit: forgot to mention, I’ve re-jigged my 16 colour palette, as I needed a proper skin tone for the large scale hand graphics. I dropped grey for it, replacing the greys with light blue. Also meant I could brighten up the yellow a bit as it’s not being shared with skin-tones any more.
