In order to get my mojo back I decided to join a game contest over at Game Institute. Deadline for the entry is Aug 8th which leaves me about 4 weeks. This past weekend I finished all the art assets and sounds for it as well. Now I'm busy working on the actual game itself. Nothing grandiose, just shooting for a space invaders clone slash Shmup hybrid.
After completing this little game demo I'll be ready to rock and get back to developing my engine for the fighting game.
I'm contemplating the idea of participating in subsequent challenges over at GI in parallel to my engine development. Possibly working on such small games would keep the art side of my brain in check.
Hoping to have a downloadable demo of sorts by end of week.
