I hope, I am doing this the right way with the screenshots ??
After my failed LD#20 attempt, I am going to try again this year.
I plan on working together with a friend to enter the jam.
We are both still beginners, but this time we will definitely enter a submission even if it’s the worst game ever
We are going to be using:
No base code, but I was thinking about evaluating the free version of the NGUI Library.
Things I learned from my failed LD#20 attempt:
I did not and since the theme get’s announced in the middle of the night over here I was already awake for 20 Hours
Then I tried to push it and slept in on the keyboard 6 Hours before the end of the compo.
If it’s not working, let it go:
Most of my time was spent trying to get a rope system working, well I never got it to work like it wanted it too.
In retrospect it would have been much more productive to cut the rope system and redesign the initial idea.
Well I was not, and I am not this time either so this will probably be in my/our postmortem.
Don’t bite of more than you can chew:
I was trying to do to much in to little time (feature creep).
I think this will get better the more experience I will become, since I will be better at judging how long something will take.
Also the Idea was to big from the beginning (did not focus on the fun)
