#1GAM December – 12 Games in 12 Months

Image

I did it! I completed 12 games in as many months this year. I am so proud of myself. I realise that they aren’t all the best games; some only scraping through as proof of concept pieces, but I am excited by my abilities even though I often find myself doubting them.

Wanderlust finished up as a neat little well formed game. I completed it in good time so that I can have the rest of the year to celebrate Christmas and revel in my achievement.

To anyone wondering if they should take the plunge I say go for it! Even if you only end up completing a few games, that’s great!

#1GAM December – Wanderlust

Standard

It’s the last month of 2013…one more to go. Awesome.

This month’s game is called ‘Wanderlust’. It is another sort of brain training-esque style game where a path is briefly revealed and the player must find their way from one side to the other. It’s not an original idea for sure (I was first exposed to the mechanics in a twin study of all things) I’ve even used it previously in subject at college.

This is however the first time I’ve digitised it and I’m happy with my progress.

I’m only a couple of days in so there are still bugs but I’m having fun coding which doesn’t happen very often.

The month will be short with Christmas right around the corner but the prospect of completing my 12th game has me working with renewed enthusiasm.

#1GAM November – Skills Tester

Standard

This week has been great! I’ll keep this short but I’ve been working on the following:

  • fixed the pesky mac only bug
  • added tweens to the shape rotation (still needs more tweaking though)
  • added a results page so the player can keep track of their progress
  • added a ‘How To Play’ page (rather ugly but does the job)
  • added a skip button so players can now continue even if stuck
  • added progress markers

I’m very happy with how things are going. Next week will be spent on implementing sound and bug fixing.
