Postmortem Week 4 (Naughty or Nice)
Game a Week Challenge
For this month all the games I make for the game a week will be holiday themed.
I was successful in creating a game this week. The game is based on the premise that Santa is very busy this holiday season and asks that you help him check a small part of the list. The player is given a situation and they have to determine if the child was Naughty or Nice. It records how many you got correct (since Santa checks the list twice) and reports it to you at the end of the game. The game is made in HTML5.
One thing that went well was my ability to reduced and reused assets. A large part of the code that I used was reused from earlier games allowing me to reduce the amount of time required to make the game. I reduced the amount of art assets needed for this game by design. I kept the design of the game fairly simple as well. I wanted to make a fun game as well that people could enjoy, I believe I did that. Tell me what you think: http://rinehartworks.com/GoW/Naughty_or_Nice/main.html
Though I am excited about my progress of completing a game, I believe I can do much better. Some things I plan to do next week is to keep the holiday them, but try and create a game where I have a little bit more art assets required. Requiring me to better my "artsy side", reducing the amount of time needed to make a 2D sprite. The game will still be simple though allowing me to work on it in the time span.
