You people should also give live streaming a shot.

I was mainly planning on just leaving it there and focusing on the work, mainly as a means to record the whole process to timelapse it at the end and so that people could maybe pop in and see what I'm up to and pop out.

That's epic! You going solo or for the jam?

Also, a more convenient way to view the livestreams:

Very cool idea! I just woke up and will get started immediately after thinking up a very simple idea, since I should be studying for exams anyways...

Our game so far.

Hint, you control both...at the same time! None of that overused switching between characters mechanic.

I loved the game! Really cool art style. Though I didn't get that thing on the computer monitor at the end...

But really, it seems like it could become really cool. Just figure out a good battle minigame when fighting other warships, and some sort of cities to buy better ships and trade, so you can pick to be a trader or a pirate, etc. typical shit :)

If you don't make it, I will! :P

Hey guys I finished my game. Now I'm gonna kick back and check out what everyone else did. I had a ton of fun. I also have never made a strategic kind of game before so that was interesting.

Let me know what you think.

I suppose that sounds way better than the hundreds or thousands you'd pay standalone, but what if you only want one program, say, Flash or Photoshop? You're paying the same price as a person who uses all of them, meaning the person who just wants Photoshop is getting ripped off while the other guy is getting a good deal and Adobe profits either way. Having access to all the programs you'd rather not spend to try out at least once sure is nice tho, but after you realize you don't want most of them, then you're getting stiffed.

I liked it. It has an initial wow factor that is a great hook to new players. My suggestion would be to kill off the parts of the maze in which you have to walk far back. This killed it for me a couple times and I just got too frustrated and wasn't having fun anymore. The draw was trying to get to the finish and shooting was fun too. Overall good concept, though.

Frameworks

Has anyone here heard of Axel? It's only a few months old, but it looks pretty promising. In a nutshell, it's Flixel, but using Stage3D. I've got it running at about 24fps on a iPad1 and at a solid 60fps on iPhone 4S, so it's pretty solid.

Having said that, what frameworks (if any) does you all use?


The water in Majorca don't taste like what it oughta.

We should have weekly "Watcha doing?" sessions...

Study study studying for exams this week.

Once this hell week is over, I'm gonna find people to work on this game with. Final Fantasy Tactics series was 300 hours of my life back in the day, so this idea will pay some tribute to that. I have a list of stuff to work on when I finally have free time (current unit indicator, confirmation boxes before an attack is launched, list of attacks to choose from, hp and whatnot, etc), so there's no need to bring up that kind of stuff.

or the crappy UI...shut up >:(

Mouse for most things, first guy is a mage kinda character, 2nd one is an archer. Left and right rotate the view. B might (?) still reset your turn (equivalent of asking "Are you sure?" after a movement finishes).

Oh geez...I have exams until May 22nd...
This will be total hell for sure, since I don't think I'm too prepared, and yet I'm still procrastinating :/
Fuck me...

Plus I gotta finish one last freelance job real quick...
