What a pain it is to fix this lag… I’m not a very good programmer, so my brain hurts from this trial and error of fixing this annoying lag in my game, making it impossible for everyone for getting to the end. Alright, there are no more particles in the blaster! I hope it works alright now…
For those of you who played it and never reached the end, and want to reach it, you can play here (the end is not even worth getting, it’s just a last minute cutscene)
I had to fix the lag in my game so people would play it to the end. I also found out I had not tiled a part of the level, making it impossible to reach the end. I fixed all of that and it’s again in the competition. The lag is still present, yet, not so much.
For the actual game, I received a lot of positive feedback! Thanks to everyone who played, it is a great first Ludum Dare for me.
What I did right
People praised the game for the graphics, and I felt really proud of them. I think they create a good mood.
The engine felt really nice to play.
The ideia and realisation is almost all in the game.
What I did wrong
I only worked for less than 20 hours on this.
The level design isn’t that fun and challenging, and it didn’t convey the exploration part of the game I wanted it to be.
It was the first time I made such a large room, and I really can’t find the problem for it to lag over time.
Music was repetitive, but it was my first time creating music, and I wanted to create a music that evolved.
Anyway, it was a nice experience. Play the game! http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-24/?action=preview&uid=14205
Because I’m making a story game, I still need to do a laaaaarge world. Yeah, I hope I finish in time…
I think I am kind of late, so in the middle of my rushing I forgot to post something here! So here are some enemies… I still don’t have a screenshot of the game because I’m covering graphics first. Enjoy.
Hello, I just discovered this awesome competition and I want to say that I am in!! This sounds a lot of fun.
I dont know if it is possible to use game maker…
For graphics I use Paint, Graphics Gale and Photoshop.
Not sure about sound program…
