Day 01 - Brainstorming, Concept Art, Outline
My amazing concept art in Paint. You play as Bear, the Dragonbear in a side scroller where you adventure through floating structures and avoid running into dangerous obstacles.
it does look like fire, for a while I thought of candles and flames but decided to go some other direction. So far things look really good but like you said need to balance things out
looks lovely so far, how does the image relate to your idea?
I thought of the picture as islands floating in the sky, and wanted to make a game based around that concept, I'm thinking of making it so you have to solve a puzzle in each level related to gravity in some way.
And thank you for the compliment :D
I like the idea of a floating island, it's almost like a prison...depends on who or what lives on it :)
the brain Jello characters is awesome, I wonder what his attack moves are
very lovely so far, I love how everything blends in well with each other.
how are you going to balance the multiple jump ?
Actually i'm almost done, i just have to add sounds, music, new sprites and a few more screens (advanced tutorial and stuff).
But the core mechanics are done.
Btw. is it allowed to work in teams here?
Thanks, it took me quite some nerves to get it working :D
And with the possibility to work in teams, i can outsource the sprites.
I honestly do feel like I failed big time, but I did learn a lot about designing games, so I won't have such a hard time next time :D
There's actually a great motto a lot of professional game designers go by: "Fail Faster" because if you don't screw up, you never truly learn how things really work.
Not a big bite chunk, to be honest. It's really simple project, but I misestimate amount of spare time out of weekend. I used to build things from scratch so I spent some time on, well, rather low-level stuff.
For now, I managed to transform it into very basic infinite runner...
