Also, I wanted to have some kind of story completed by the end of the day, but it’s far from it, actually. It turns out it’s not that easy to create a compelling story in English, even if I feel I know the language pretty well. It’s probably because I didn’t really read that many books in that language and I lack practice when it comes to writing stories in language other than my own.
But hey, I’m not giving up – which means that today will be a little intense for me. I did acquire some respect for all the Twine authors out there, and got some interesting ideas for my own text engine (if I ever come up with one), so while I cannot aim for high notes with my game, I hope it will at least be entertaining.
Okay, okay. So I decided to try Twine this time (yep, I know next to nothing about it, so it must be a success, right?). I’m not native English speaker, so this might be a little hard story-wise, but interactive fiction fits my general idea and I wanted to try this for quite a long time. And LD seems like a great opportunity to test weird ideas, as always!
So the plan for today is to get a little more knowledge about Twine macros, custom scripts, etc., and have the story fleshed out. I was aiming for some more interactivity using custom JS, but we’ll see how it goes. Story is a minimum for today.
Tomorrow I should work on the graphics (want to have some), and music (I did play with MilkyTracker for a couple of hours).
The final aim is to have a IF game working on desktop as well as mobile.
Food photo ! A light lunch of ham, cheese & egg toastie, coffee and a banana.
I just eat a big pizza drunk some RedBull, put my best ninja cloths and plugged in my speakers. The night can begin !
Oh, and the game is fine, I almost finished the core of coding. Now I have to enhance the user experience and draw some sprites.
The idea is to do a minesweeper. You control a man that want to defuse all mines presents on the map. You have to search them with your metal detector and defuse them but be carefull, you have a limited number of defuse kit.
Have a good night or whatever you want depending on your timezone.
First, starting the day with a very English breakfast of tea and coco pops!
I stayed up late to find out what the theme is, so I came up with an idea or two while going to sleep. I’m going to do the easier of the two, and just make a small visual novel for fun. If I had more energy I would make an irreverent clone of Arcventure, an archaeology educational game which was on the Archimedes when I was a kid (most notable for you being able to dig up poop in the viking version!) But as I don’t have the time or energy, a small vn is what I’ll aim for.
Started getting hungry so decided to have a little breakfast!
Potato cakes and a nice cup of tea
As per usual I work up when the theme was announced, and slowly drifted back to sleep why looking up definitions and having a think, well I officially got up a couple of hours ago and started work on my game, and fleshed out my idea which I’m quite happy with the route I’ve gone.
Although I’m hoping my ideas aren’t a little too generic this time round and that it might be similar to other people’s games.
So I’m up and away!
I’ve also just popped the chilli from last night in a container for the fridge, made absolutely loads, I’m gonna have my lunch sorted for next week!
Now back onto the game and then it’ll be breakfast time soon!
