Week of Awesome 2

Entries in this blog


The end is Nigh

I didn't do much in the way of dev today. A couple of minor bug fixes and a small tweak. But the contest is nearly over and after my site went down and I managed to get it back up and running again. I just focused on art work.

I did picture panels for the short storm the castle adventure.

After that I end up drawing the above to scene's which won't make it to the contest but will be in a later edition of the game.




A long two days

Its been a long two days working on this game, and I'm now pretty burnt out on the project. Since my last update I've:
Draw the artwork for the nursery and rat kings lair.
refactored the code and fixed a bunch of typos
Added a simple combat system.
Added the first continuous adventure.
Added the ability to include choices in a popup.
Scripted up and tested one large room and one small one.
Added fast mode to skip to action resolution.

The nursery proved to be a lot of work to build. With adding new functionality and scripting up events and actions its taken hours of work to implement. The Rat Kings Lair was less then that but it still took ages with bug fixes and testing.

So where does that leave things?
Heading into the weekend I'm officially burnt out and won't have time to add much more in the way of content. So I figure that I'm going to leave the dev where it is for now and just work on adding some additional art work and giving it a final polish.

As it stands the game ends after you fix Princess Ballerina.

I was going to include an aMAZEing mini game but I won't have time.
And to develop the game further requires another big overall to add in the functionality to switch between the different character so they can work together.

That and I'd have to think up new content.

If I'd gotten around to the Bad Girls Room would have included section inspired by this:

Well I started late, after trying to think up an idea I decided to make a little sim game. Not sure how much time I'll have to spend on it though.[/background] [/font][/color]
Check out the first room, and my limited artistic ability.[/background] [/font][/color]

More Rooms:

The Nursery

The upstairs hall.

The bad girls room

The dark attic

The creepy staircase

The living room

The deadly kitchen

The scary basement

Two more toy characters that can be found to joy teddi on his quest.
More Story
Multiple Endings

Well the time is already half over and I've only managed about 5 hours of work.
Not sure where the game is going yet. But I'm thinking two good endings

Ending 1 - Teddi and friends escape the house. Goal build some kind vehicle that they can use cross the endless lawn to world beyond.
Ending 2 - Save the house. Harder to achieve requires removing the curse on the house and braving the harder areas like the attic and basement.

Still trying to figure out what 2 toy friends to add they should each be unique and provide ways of solving problems that teddi can't solve.
Thinking of a broken ballerina doll which you repair with an arm and leg from a toy soldier.

Any suggestion for the second friend?
