Hello it is I, Jyzavi. I am making a game called Donut Witch. :V For this first post I am going to outline what I am trying to do.
My main goal for this jam is to get a feel for Game Maker Studio and hopefully have a finished game.
This is a game about a donut witch. The witch does a dance to summon donuts, then eats them to gain their power. Then the powers are unleashed.
The dance is performed by using arrow keys. There are nine moves in a full donut dance - 3 for the donut, 3 for the frosting, 3 for the topping. Each three move combo corresponds with a different power/flavor.
Then the completed donut will rain from the sky and the witch will run left and right across the screen to catch donuts in their mouth. For increased difficulty other objects might also rain down, like vegetables or dirty socks.
In the final phase, the powers will be unleashed. The donut will be a base 10, the frosting adds 5, and the sprinkles add another five. If two flavors match it will be a plus 1 bonus, if all three match a plus 2 bonus. The donuts value will then be multiplied by how many donuts were eaten.
