Sadly I didn’t manage to finish my game in time last night, so I’m entering myself in the Jam instead as I really wanted to finish off a couple of screens that I didn’t have time to do this morning, and I didn’t want to submit it without them.
With 20 minutes left to go I realised I couldn’t draw out 3/4 menu screens as well as record and put in sound effects.
Which is a shame as I really wanted to get my game finished, but it’s not like entering the Jam is a bad thing at all It just means I didn’t manage to complete it in 48 hours, although with the amount of time I spent sleeping over the weekend added to the amount of time I’ll get to work on my entry today, it’ll probably total about 48 hours
My entry will probably be submitted later this evening.
So I’ve almost finished all the background stuff to get the game working, meaning I may be able to start on the art for it all soon *yay*
After feeling a bit peckish though I decided to heat up the left over beans and hot dogs from last night and have some yummy beans on toast.
From the sounds of it, it isn’t as epic as Cptalbertwesker’s incoming breakfast, but you can’t beat some good beans on buttery toast
I still don’t have a huge amount to show, I’m still getting the game all working properly and then I look forward to getting on with all the art for it
Just made my dinner though so I’m having a short break with a lovely garlic & coriander pizza naan with beans and mini hot dogs as a sauce and cheese with some shredded ham hock on top. All brought together with a bottle of No17 Bullmers
So it’s come to another short snack break, I decided as Cptalbertwesker had made Waffles, I’d do the closet thing that I could.
So I made pancakes, there’s even a pretty evil looking pancake clearly visible on the pile of them. I made them from a scotch pancake recipe so the batter was very thick and they turned out very tasty and sweet.
The game’s coming along ok, I only went for a simple idea and haven’t gone for anything hugely different. But after not completing my game for LD21 I need to make sure to do something simpler and easy to finish for LD22
So I’m taking part again, hopefully this time round I will finish my game as I was a little unsuccessful last time
Coming up with an idea now, I was going to do a livestream but then realized my xbox live vision cam doesn’t have a mic, and then I tried to do a stream of my webcam off my laptop along with a stream of my desktop’s second screen. But it didn’t work out, plus Game Maker HTML5 doesn’t seem to allow itself it be streamed.
On with the thinking up ideas, once I’ve got one narrowed down and started working on it I’ll allow myself some food
