YodamanJer's Journal > Developing a small game with built-in level editor!

Posted 16 December 2014

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...

YodamanJer's Journal > OId Ideas spawn New Ideas

Posted 21 June 2013

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.

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...

YodamanJer's Journal > Making good progress on new game

Posted 26 May 2013

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...
