Hold The Throne was creating for the Weekly Game Jam 150 taking place on itch.io last week. The Theme was ‘You’re The Enemy’ I interpreted this as you being able to cause damage to the player, just as enemies can. I decided to go with the idea of your projectiles bouncing and wrapping screens. These projectiles could hit you in the back and damage you similar to an enemy. You can play this in the browser for free here.
I decided to take part in a Game Jam for the first time in a while. This was my first solo Game Jam, in which I roughly spent a couple of days on. The personal gains for this Game Jam were to motivate me to create a game for the first time in a while by forcing myself to stick to a theme and see it through to the end. Devil’s Diner is a memory game about ordering food.
Today I released a puzzle game called “Color Dome” for Android on the Google Play Store. The game is a high score style game and you must rotate the planet to find the correct colours.
It’s been a while, I’ve just finished my University course and I am awaiting results. In the meantime I’ve thought about additions and improvements to Run Tapper. For version 1.5.0 I intended to implement or question the additions of the following. If an item has (?) beside it then I am considering adding it as a feature and any comments as to whether it should be implemented are greatly appreciated.
- Menu Music (?) – Annoying after long periods ie Level editor?
- In Game Music (?) – Not sure if this would become jarring if music was added to level generation as the game is fast paced. Perhaps dependant on movement speed.
- Revised Audio for surfaces
- Performance enhancements – raise from locked 30fps to locked 60fps
Happy New Year everyone! 2016 should be a blast, hopefully more projects will come out this year and I will be able to do a year in industry in the second half of 2016 and really get on course to being a developer for a company. I hope you all enjoy the new year and that plenty of great games release =)
Sorry I haven’t posted an update in a while, mainly because there hasn’t been a lot added, it’s mainly been research but please take a look!
I hope you enjoyed, feel free to leave any feedback in the comments!
