Title:
Homer and Bart use Ancient Technology


04:20 (cest)
Created : Extension LD36, simple physics scene

Theme interpretation:
* http://www.dictionary.com/browse/ancient  :  old-fashioned or antique.
* http://www.dictionary.com/browse/antique : noting or pertaining to automobiles approximately 25 years old or more.

OK : lot of things are ancient! Including myself.


05:33 (cest)             SplitScreen
ScreenShot

07:00 (cest)           Right/Left Movement   [arrows and wasd]
After half an hour of trying to get slide animation to work I ditched it for now so I don't get stuck early on.
Step 1

08:45 (cest )     Up/Down  + View Port    [arrows and wasd]
Step 2

11:40 (cest)
Boundary-Check Up/Down   :    took me way too long !! Probably I should have used the actor position rather than calculate using viewport
Step 3

LUNCH

13:30 (cest)
It starts to become an actual game-mechanic.
Step 4

16:00 (cest)
About 12 hours objects and interactions are being made
Step 5

20:40
Start Screen + TITLE
The follow-eye action needs to be done with face behavior + iris not center
Step 6
 
SLEEP

04:00
Two hours ago started again. Flipping characters, background, Leveling
Step 7
 

10:15
Changed objects to blocks/tiles. Wasted some hours to get sliding to work : again ditched it
Started to work on background object-layer
Step 8

17:00
After working on some graphic assets I got confused on the numbers I gave them so a Level Editor was needed.
Step 9 : Editor
Save doesn't work yet. Also Next and Previous Page doesn't work.
Cycling through animations = cycling through objects/backgrounds => use arrow keys


20:40
So tired. Made saving mechanism to server. The editor needs correct page-movement so that it can be extended to the right.
Doing some graphics before turning in early and catch some sleep before tomorrow where it all has to come together.

Day 3

09:00
Worked on the editor so that it can make scenes. Save and Load (really only works on private server using MySQL)
Step 11 : Editor : Pages + Save/Load

11:00
Finally I have one level complete : Yippee..   Not pleased on the non-uniformity of it all, but hey I am moving forward!
Step:12

13:30
Only some blocks can be pushed by some player.
Step:13

15:30
Some Levels
Step:14

Need a bit of longer break now

Started after dinner.

22:30
Done .. so tired .. couldn't finish my own level .. made too many mistakes by trying to do it quick. My Girl Friend helped!
Done



Will write a post-mortem with the lessons learned later this week.

I've planned to take part in this LD, but about 18 hour turning round, I've just find my concept, and not an original one.
Good work and good luck!

My is Game Live!!!  :

Candle Dungeons is a game where you explore treasure Dungeons with your trusty candle. You have 15 seconds with each wick, collect Yellow Coal cubes to extend you light time. How much time of light you have left is displayed next to the player. Each coal provides 15 more seconds of light. Use the arrow keys to move , Space to jump, and ENTER key to open doors. Doors could only be used once. Also this game is in need of a post combo update which I will do tomorrow. Right now this game has only one level, and no Menu screen, no enemies. But don't worry, I'll include those in the update tomorrow. So drop by again tomorrow to see whats new.

Time to get some ZZZZ's....
