I thought I would lead off and write a little bit about my own project. I am not doing anything too ambitious this time around due to a recent game jam failure where I bit off more than I could chew, but hopefully it will be challenging enough to help me learn from it.

A Reluctant Spy

The idea:

You've been recruited through the use of a honey pot, and upon returning to your Communist homeland are being blackmailed to provide photographs of documents. You have to find useful documents based on the requests of your handler, and keep them happy.

What have I done so far?

Not a lot. I created some basic art to get started on the mechanics of the game. Currently all I have done is set up some of the code, created classes I know I will need and come up with a basic game structure.

Here is a screenshot of what I have so far, which is not much. It is a filing cabinet which I will be trying to fill with documents today.

Loving the idea! and also, good progress, mine is about an spy from eangland (that is actually a dog, a beagle) that needs to sneak in a nazi base (but they are actually german shepherd dogs) so is a pretty basic stealth game but instead of people they are cute dogs...

Thanks for the praise. I am not sure how it will turn out though. Trying to fix a bit of a structural problem with my code at the moment, sadly, so not much progress today. I am working on a ugly kludge at the moment. Anyway, it is really awesome to hear a bit about your idea. Nice to know others, aside from me, are seriously considering making something. Cute dogs are always a good thing, my girlfriend will love it.

Just a little update.

I'm a bit behind where I wanted to be at this point, but the game is starting to come together and look a bit more like an actual game. Here is a gif showing some of the progress, letting you take photos of documents.

I was really hoping to get a first version of my game up this week, but work has gotten in the way. I am pretty much there though, just have some asset creation, and some text to come up with. So hopefully I can get it done this weekend.

Did not quite get it done this weekend, as I finished after midnight, but I've posted my game at https://picofoundry.itch.io/a-reluctant-spy. Probably will go through some modifications in the coming week. Would love to know if the Linux/Mac builds work as well.
