I know I haven't been posting a lot about the progress of the game, but it is being made. I just haven't got much internet access right now since I'm on vacation.


The icon for the first level is now done, as well as the layout of the build and the wire paths. Here's some screenshots of all that.



A main mechanic for this game will be the actuall coding of the virus you're going to use on each level. The coding for that is done, and it allows the user to:

  • Search for different wire lines (red, yellow, blue, light blue, target file)
  • transmit through those wires
  • destroy the target file or the virus you created (clearing evidence)
  • upload the target file (not yet implemented)
  • save and load the script you just made so it can be used at the level

The main menu is done! Any extra information needed to be filled will be done later (for example the controls information tab).

Here is a small video clip showing the main menu!

I was thinking about using real encrypted messeages, but more encrypted on harder levels, and with more hints on starter ones.

Actual coding will require extra work, because the game needs to know what each part of the puzzle does. It's like making a game engine, just simpler. If it's your first game idea, and first game prototype, I would suggest starting with a simple game of pac man or something similar. 

Making sure you can move a player, have key input controls and things like that is essential to programming. One of my first learning projects was pac man, and it improved my programming skills by a lot, and all the mechanics that I used then, I use all the time now.

I was actually thinking of not participating at all. Ludum Dare has me way too exausted to participate, and all ideas that came to mind require heavy amounts of art, something that I couldn't make at any means.

While I was looking through a website, I remembered a little easter egg it has, one that includes the konami code. The game idea seems simple now, and the path is clear. 

You, are a professional hacker - decrypter, and only take offers others can't possibly complete. You will be tasked to break into various computers and sites alike, in a very limmited amount of time, of 30 seconds. Other offers may include decrypting various messeages. Those ones won't have a time limit, and will be consider training missions.

This won't ever be "first place, oh wow this is amazing", but it's better than nothing, will keep me entertained, and I want to do a solo participation anyways!

Any progress through the game will be uploaded as a reply on this topic.

I got to wave 23! Octava is OP!
