My attempt at making a platfo... no, a game

?) I can't finish anything

Posted by AFS, 30 August 2015 · 0 views

It goes like this:

1) Have an idea for a game.
2) Daydream about said idea for days.
3) Try to make the game for a few months.
4) Slowly lose interest.
5) Abandon the project.
6) Do nothing gamedev related for a few months.
7) Came up with a new, simpler idea for a game.
8) Go back to point 2.

It has been three years, with five games that I haven't fini...

6) Pause menu

Posted by AFS, 15 May 2015 · 0 views


I finally finished some very important real life stuff that I had to do: I couldn't work on this in the past two months, but now I can work on it, so yay!

Anyway, I wanted to make a pause menu a long time ago but only yesterday I decided to start making it. Before this, pressing Esc would inmediately close the game, while pressing F2 opened up th...

5) "Maybe a month?"

I've been experimenting with some gameplay mechanics. Gameplay wise the game is not original at all, you just shoot at things and things shoot at you. I tried to change this by taking away your weapon, and instead giving you a shield: now you just avoid getting shot either by dodging projectiles or stopping them with your shield, which you can "ai...

4) Assets... uggh

I've only worked a few hours on this little monster this week, I have been very distracted with "real life". The only "work" I did (if we can call it "work", because to me working on this feels like playing) was regarding superficial stuff. Graphics, that is.

Like I said in earlier entries, I'm not an artist by any means, so I'm keeping the art s...

3) Testing endless backgrounds

Posted by AFS, 09 February 2015 · 0 views


I got kind of tired of programming non stop, so I decided to just play with the editor a little bit. I fixed some bugs, added some small features and played with the map a little bit, adding things here, improving things there and so on.

I added a new type of background to the game: basically it's just a repeating, endless background that moves a...

1) Here comes Round 2

Posted by AFS, 15 January 2015 · 0 views


I was trying to make a game half a year ago, but I got disheartened for several reasons and took a break. I got so disheartened that I deleted a year and a half worth of journal entries, thinking that I was going to stop for good, but now I decided to try again. That brings a start to this journal, Round 2.

Long story short, I have been writiing...
