@Toast game jam poke

For a bullet hellish game, assuming shooting is automatic, would you guys prefer mouse or keyboard movement (no wasd)? If keyboard, would you be fine with navigating menus and a shop with the arrow keys as well? If mouse, would you want your speed limited (player moves toward the mouse at 5px/sec or something) or to track the mouse exactly (continuous collision detection to avoid skipping over things)?

I just want to avoid switching between the mouse and arrow keys a lot, and I know non-wasd is a turnoff for some people.

I'm starting to regret signing up for Zoosk.

So. Many. E-mails.

After a week of coding the animation shit for my swf renderer without really being able to test it (it's full of a million interlocking systems that all depend on each other), I tested it last night for the first time. And it worked on the first time.

And its so fast

sample interface at the moment:

initialization:

swf::SWFDecoder decoder("../../test.swf");
decoder.decode();

instantiating a movieclip

glaiel::swf::DisplayObject* myClip = glaiel::swf::Dictionary::findSprite("test3")->createDisplayObject();

update / rendering the movieclip

myClip->update(); 
myClip->render();

Jeez now I'm being told we're getting kicked out of the house for that weekend...so happy the jam is longer than a weekend. Maybe Austin and Tom heard my pleas.

With such a large programmer:artist ratio in the team-finding thread, I may not be able to find people an artist for this...

Ported a couple of my classes over to Java for use in this mod-thing, decided to make a quick speed test to see how long it takes to generate numbers via the modified Blum-Blum-Shub.

100,000 operations at 50 operations per batch (game tick, with speed increased to 17ms)

2013-06-15 17:38:39 [INFO] [STDOUT] PRNG.secure() results: 0.0006099999882280827ms

This isn't counting the amount of time it takes to check remaining byte info and grab the original seed it uses from random.org (fallback to java.security.SecureRandom)

Three cheers for the Flash/Java reg lounge? xD

Man, can artists really only think of brawler type games?

While there aren't a lot of submissions, and not all of them are like this, it's a bit disappointing that these are supposed to be screenshots that are inspiring/new...and half of them are just 2 dudes facing each other with health bars on top...

So yeah my only gripe about the game jam is that it's two weeks. I'm guessing Austin got tired of all the assholes who constantly flame him about "making developers make crappy rushed games" and wanted to try to make it longer. Those players who complain really just don't get the point of a game jam.

So then I realized just because it's 2 weeks, you don't have to work for 2 weeks. So then I felt happy.

I have a lot of faith in the artists of NG. The good submissions of any contest usually come in towards the end. And I think there will be two kinds of artists/submissions here. Artists who have never been involved in making a game before, but love to draw, and are ecstatic about the idea of having their art come to life in such a way, and artists who are partly game designers that know how games work and will make interesting concepts for fun games. I think there's a place for both in this contest.

Something like this for example, looks very interesting, but also makes me think multiple people may end up making the same game.

I think Austinbreed did this, or got it from somewhere, either way, it's not in the art portal but would be fucking awesome as a game. "The Vultures Drinking Game"

So when's this thing start, again?
I've been busy getting sunburned and bleeding all summer and didn't think i'd have the time to fully participate in a jam, but since it's a full two weeks, I might (plus some other unexpected circumstances that've opened up my schedule some)

A question to those who have submitted a game to FGL:

Do you usually stick the highscores and medals in before submitting to FGL, or only after you get a sponsorship?

Danke!

Controls

A Key - Sqwak
UP ARROW - Interact
LEFT/RIGHT - Move
SPACE - Fly

I updated it a bit since I last posted if I ever even posted it here before. You can scare the baby birds at the start if you sqwak at them. As always there is a mushroom and it will make you high and trip out a bit and stuff. Stuff thinking of ideas to add, not much really to this demo other than it shows the basic idea

Which screenshot has everyone picked?

We've formed a team with two artists, a musician and a voice actor, and we're using test-object's screenshot for the jam.
