now ive got something that actually does a little something

so far the objective will be to collect all the crircles with the line through half of it, adn to avoid the red->pink dots that explode when red(it kills you)
now all i have to do if i have the time is to:
get the explosions to spawn on there own, and when all the circles are collected generate new level with more stuff in it.
so far, only about 4 hours to cut off time, right ?

Same here. Just built the second level. 3 and 1/2 hours remain (I hope I'm counting them right).

As I already feared, just couldn't find the time this weekend. :/
To make up for it I can volunteer as a judge if more are still needed.

Good luck to everyone in these last few hours!

What just happened? The enemies in my game suddenly became self-aware!

Seriously, my dumb little 'move back and forth repeatedly in a straight line' enemies suddenly started showing advance flocking behaviors and started attacking me. Some are even bouncing off walls, when they actually have zero collision detection code.
Now I'm afraid to touch that part of the code, because suddenly it looks like my enemies were programmed by an actual AI programmer... I have no clue what mistake I made that caused it, but hey, it's making the gameplay a heck of a lot funner!

I'm not overly picky about how you submit your game. If you don't have any file hosting at all then let me know and I'll make a contest FTP user for a server I pay for. It'll be lunch time at work when the end time comes, but I won't be a butt monkey if your game rolls in 5 mins late or whatever. I'm seeing about 3h 15m remaining.

Wan, it certainly wouldn't hurt to have another judge!

3:15 mins? Sweet, I got another hour! My poor time usage is somehow working in my favor. Posted Image

The obvious has happend. I just started building the game with a vague mechanic in my mind which turned out to be crap (couldn't figure out a single interesting puzzle/challenge involving it) and now I have nice looking "not-game". Well maybe I can still figure out something very simple...

Wow Japro, that looks sweet! Looks like some kind of adventure game or something.

Not going to post any more screenshots of mine, because it looks pretty much exactly the same as it has previously, only the gameplay has been getting tweaked/polished.

About 2.5 hours left, and all I have left to do is add sound. However, I have pretty much zero experience doing game audio, so in that time I don't think I can come up with anything less annoying than what I have at the moment: silence...

So I guess I'm done!

It's almost 1am now and I have work in the morning, so where do I send this thing? Are the judges (and the other contestants/spectators) OK with me just submitting an exe? I've used unity so I could put up a web player somewhere I guess.

I'm nowhere near finsihed, so I'll upload what i've made. Is a webplayer in dropbox alright? )I'm using unity.)

I would say go for it on the web players, anybody using Unity/Flash/etc. It can only make things easier on the judges (and whoever else wants to play your games).

You play a flying sheep on her quest to collect fruit (but not bad, black fruit), upgrade her flying abilities, and reach an arbitrary flight distance.

Press space to launch, and left and right arrows to steer. At the upgrade screen you can press enter instead of clicking try again.


Windows Download - no installation required, 6.8MB
Web player - no file download required, security of running in-browser. Requires browser plugin though.

I can build and upload an OSX version too, of anyone really wants it.

Sorry for the double post, but could someone please just quickly confirm that one or both of those works from a computer other than the one I'm sitting at? I don't see why either wouldn't, but just want to be sure before I go to bed.

Hmm, the windows download one doesn;t work for me, it tells me a need a folder next to the executable.

EDIT: but the unity one works fine.

EDIT: the game looks great but it keeps randomly deciding ive crashed :o

To give you peace of mind, yes, the web player is working fine for me. Posted Image
Didn't try the download, too busy putting the final touches on my entry. Just finished the last level, now going to run through it once more to double check all the humorous lines line up humorously.


My entry will be online in about 45 minutes. (I still have an Hour and 15 mins, right? Or am I miscalculating?)
