Sorry no, it only works on Windows.

Thanks!

Great, if I need music I'll let you know :) Thanks

GameMaker Studio 2. :)

Right haha. Thanks!

Thanks :)

Hey, you can submit your game past the deadline but you can't work on it. Just upload the game to itch normally and send me the link on Discord.

The game has to be created from scratch. You can use stuff like free extensions, libraries, code snippets and such, but you can't use an existing game base like your card prototype.

Have fun!

Thanks! I think the word you're looking for is "nitpicking". :)

Slow? You mean performance-wise, or gameplay-wise?

Thanks, it was my first music track ever so I didn't get the volume right. 

That's really basic. But yeah, thanks for pointing out.

:D

Final update...

:/

Unfortunately, I have to scrap this project. I already have too much work to focus on, this game is just holding me back and I'm not even able to give it enough time.

The project is available on GitHub, if anyone wants to continue working on it, please feel free to do so.

The ending was so touching

Oh, I haven't updated in a while.

I was busy with something else on Sunday so I didn't get a chance to work on this game. Will continue today.

So, update:

I am working on implementing the enemies. Each enemy will have its own level, attack and defense stats. They will have their own loadout of weapons that match their level.

Later I will also add enemy "forts" that you can clear, which would give you XP.

If you've played AC Origins then you'll immediately recognize these mechanics from there. That game has been a huge inspiration!

And... having to draw the enemy sprites (for each state and each of the 4 directions) is gonna take a lot of time, haha.

Haha, nice. I think the limit for my weapons would be 8x8.

Oh thanks for letting me know, I'll be sure to make it as compact as possible. I made the bottom panels big because there will be many different kinds of swords so I just made it big enough to fit the swords I would make in the future. :)

Thanks!

Haha!

Added the HUD!

Thought the HUD was taking a lot of space, since 64*64 is already too small, so made it hide like this.

I'd appreciate suggestions from you guys!

Created the player's sprites and more
Added a dynamic sword system
Implemented a depth ordering system

The sword is not a part of the player's animations. It's dynamically attached to the player, so it's a separate object.

This will allow me to easily add new swords, which I didn't originally plan to do. So, good!

New areas being generated

Uses rectange_in_rectangle() to check whether the camera view (plus margin) is touching the current area's edge. If it is, it again uses that function to check which outside area it is touching. That area is then generated using DS grids.

Very cool! Interested in seeing where it goes.

Working on procedural generation

Green blocks are trees, yellow ones are houses and red ones are enemy camps.

No specific algorithm used. Just filling grids randomly based on certain rules that I am still working on.

~Procedural Generation: How does my system work?

At a time, a certain square area is generated. Its size is in the AREA constant, currently at 512.
The constant DIVISION is the size of the distinct parts of an area (of the size AREA). A division currently is 256 (so each area has two divisions). Each division is of a certain type; it can be a village, a forest, a hostile area, and so on.

The constant SIZE (12) is the size of each individual block that holds something (grass, tree, house, etc.). You can also call it a cell or a tile.

So when the grid for the current area is creating, the divisions are generated, and looping through the divisions, tiles are placed. Different tiles have different chances of being placed inside different divisions.

Sure, I mailed you. :)

You can join whenever you want, even while the jam is running.

Great.

Thanks man!

> Score is only gained from killing zombies, so there doesn't seem to be any incentive to craft things that aren't weapons

The non-weapon items are axes, pickaxes and health potions. Why is there no incentive? Axes can let you cut trees which gives you wood to craft wood blocks & pickaxes, and leaves which let you make health potions. Pickaxes let you mine metal which lets you craft weapons & metal blocks. The more you craft, the better weapons you have; and the faster you can kill zombies (hence more score).

> Zombies seem to be able to occasionally dodge forward instead of to the side when shot at

They do that when you get too close. :P

> The crafting elements make sense and the UI is very clear.  Solid work.

Thanks a lot :3
