Developing a small game with built-in level editor!

Posted by YodamanJer, in 2D 16 December 2014 · 1,095 views
It has been a long time since I've posted anything in this journal, in fact I sort of forgot about its existence! Won't do that again. :)

I'm not sure how many people are familiar with it, but I'm using App Game Kit from The Game Creators, the same company behind DarkBASIC, to create the base engine for a really simplistic game. I won't get into too muc...

OId Ideas spawn New Ideas

RPG, 2D, Action/Adventure and 1 more...
It's funny sometimes how one project you're working on can inspire new and completely different ideas, especially when the project you're working on is completely different and has unrelated game mechanics.

What originally started out as a 2D platformer is slowly evolving into a different game inside of my head, and the ideas I have for it are many and d...

Keeping Cuboidz 2D

Posted by YodamanJer, 15 June 2013 · 610 views

Well, after some considerable thought, I realized that keeping Cuboidz 2D would probably be the best route to go. Finishing the game in GameMaker should be easy enough, after I test out a few more features!

I also spent some time today re-designing the ground tiles for most levels. I will simply re-color them for other levels, as well as design a few mor...

Would Cuboidz be better as a 2.5D sidescrolling platformer?

Ideas, Unity3D, Cuboidz
Well, I've been stuck on my Cuboidz project for quite some time. I haven't been working on it that much, because I've realized that 2D, while fun, is rather limiting to several ideas I want to implement in any of my games. Secondly, as great as GameMaker: Studio is, it has severe limitations when compared to Unity3D. For example, in Unity, you can set up...

Making good progress on new game

Cuboidz, 2D, GameMaker
Well, I've learned quite a lot about how GameMaker works since I've last posted in this journal, and I've even started developing a game!It's sort of a "test" game. I chose to make this one before "A Little Epic", because it will be a simpler platformer, and have a much simpler mechanics. Here's a little video, showcasing (now defunct) graphics, and the b...

It's been a long, long time...

Posted by YodamanJer, in Uncategorized, A*Little*Epic 28 April 2013 · 578 views

Well, it's been a really long time since I've posted here on GD.net, or used this journal. A lot has happened over the last year. Aside from continuing pre-production on my game project (previously known as "A Little Epic"), I've been really busy with figuring out what I need to do with my life, and trying to get things in order. I've decided to pursue ga...

Life Update

Posted by YodamanJer, in A*Little*Epic 05 June 2012 · 822 views

Well life has certainly gotten in the way of my developing desires.

I work almost full-time at my job now, earning $7.50 an hour, paying bills with said check and occasionally taking my girlfriend out to dinner. It's also pretty much summer now, so I spend less and less time on my computer, enjoying the nice weather outdoors.

I'm also about...

It's been a while...

As the title says, it's been a long time since I've posted here. This is mainly due to the fact that I got a ton of hours at my job and haven't really had much time to sit at home and do much of any game development, let alone programming of any kind. I also discovered how addictive Minecraft can be.

Anyhoo, I've abandoned GLBasic in favor...

Multi-Platform Development!

Posted by YodamanJer, 09 October 2011 · 495 views

So I haven't ordered it yet and won't be able to until next Month sometime, but very, very soon I'm getting myself a shiny new iMac. It will serve two key purposes; one is to start developing for Mac OS X with GLBasic, the other is for video editing, which is my other major hobby.

One of the things I hope to do with the iMac is to start...

Some problems with GLBasic...

Posted by YodamanJer, 05 October 2011 · 819 views

Fantastic. Just when I thought this tool would be great, I discover a lot of problems with it on my current computer. It could just be my hardware (I am on a laptop, after all), but it's really annoying to have gotten so excited over it and then find some problems.

First, for some reason or another, every now-and-then GLB doesn't want to load ANY...
