Just a quick check to see who is and who isn't on target for the 4E4 deadline? Personally, it's going to be very close and I have a gut feeling that I'll just miss the deadline, but I'm going to give it my best shot! So how about everyone else... anyone almost near completion? Cheers, Steve

I was on schedule, but I got a new job, so now I'm not sure if I'll be able to make the deadline without dropping some features. I'll probably have a better idea of my time commitment after I've been in this job for a week though.

Nope. Though I hope to get a game in that qualifies. I've written enough concept to get all 4 elements in - but I expect I will only have time at this rate to do two... if I'm lucky.

This weekend I can dedicate many hours to it, so I will no better by the end of it where I am. I've got sidetracked in to making a sound framework to integrate nicely with ogre.

A little more than two weeks late. I set a game code complete date of August 15th. I should be finishing that this weekend. Then ... game content.


So are you un-grounded then?

I personally think that despite the possibility of missing the deadline, this is still a very good thing, as otherwise I'd probably still be messing around with an empty terrain engine. It's good motivation to get a proper game made!

As with Moe.... perhaps 4E5 will be the deadline I'll hit... but hopefully a little earlier. Anyhoo thanks for the response thus far!

Well I am proud to say I am almost 2 weeks ahead of schedule now. My schedule doesn not include work at weekends so if I get some mores tuff done today and tomorrow as well as other weekends I'll be flying.

I reckon that I will get the entry deadline but it won't have all the levels planned, I am just trying to get some content done for next week now too.

I now have a friend interested in making maps which means I can do all the coding without worrying about that. Also I am taking advantage of all the great free models and textures I can find, All the creators will get full credit for them.

I am planning on implementing the final part of the physics into the game. Some of the maps my mate has planned would make some cool gameplay if I get the physics right.

Anyway, it's saturday, i'm off for a rest and then pub lol.

Good luck all.

I've had 3 months of 60-80 hour weeks at work. So I am about two months behind schedule - I havn't touched my 4E4 code in about 2 months.

I will however get something done for the contest - I've done enough 48hour Game Dev contests to know that I can get something finished in time :)

I, too, was on target. Then college started. [bawling] And, well, maybe next year (although I'm still going to give it a shot. [smile])

Best of luck to all the competitors. I'm really looking forward to seeing these entries. I think they're going to rock.

I didn't put a proper plan together since I knew I'd have no time to start with.
Still coding core code but have a lot more time now.

We'll get something in which isn't too shoddy I think - I'm really looking forward to seeing Keratin's models in-game since they continue to look great. Sirob's building a scriptable particle engine which I also want to see running in the game. So I'm lucky to have so much to motivate me, as well as the coding being pretty fun so far.
