Gametype: Vertically scrolling shoot em up
Engine: Gamemaker Studio Pro
Developer: Uh.. me!... ^^;
So yeah, I uh. I guess I should do a devlog, it might help me collate thoughts and such. so...
Here's the plan I guess. Inspired a little by Twinbee, Kirby, Cotton, Parodius, that sort of thing, I decided I would try and make a cute vertically scrolling shootemup. It allows me to make nice, colourful, simplistic backgrounds and sprites and learn how to do good looking animations for them with pixel art.
I'll be honest, with my rl work schedule I'm looking to get at least a 1 level prototype done with boss and everything but any progress I make during this jam will be useful and good for me.
I've made my plan today, mostly, of what things are going to be, so I can work on those, and I suppose I'll officially start tomorrow, given I don't have to work tomorrow! So there's that.
I have as of yet no idea of a title or a plotline, only that I like cats more than I like dogs, but bunnies are even cuter than both (With some notable small exceptions in all cases), so this is gonna be bunny themed. maybe I'll put a cat or a dog in there too. :D
So first steps are to do a good looking player ship, some bullets, and maybe work out how I want damage and explosions to look. Fiery ones aren't that cute so I was thinking like... stars or something. in pastel shades.
