1GAM April – Oh yeah games!

Standard

Apologies for the radio silence thus far I’m afraid this month has been busy. I assure you I have still be making a game this month although things haven’t been progressing as quickly as i would like.

April’s game is called ‘Haiku’ and the gist of it is that you get the hero through a series of obstacles by forming a Haiku. It’s an idea I’ve had for ages but have been too chicken to actually try. When I came to making it, yes I see my trepidation was not unreasonable.

It’s not really at a playable point so here are some screenshots!

Drag and drop words to each line. As per a haiku the lines will hold 5, 7 and 5 syllables respectively.

It’s a bit of a bummer that this late in the month I’m only now getting my core goals completed (some with a “that is not quite there yet” tick even). Nevertheless a game will be playable come the end of the month. It’s just the scope and success of aforementioned game that are yet to be seen…
