This is some cool level design!

Haha thanks! I kind of ran out of time for things, especially implementing recipes and ingredients with certain drinks

Hey Nick, just to clarify (sorry) about #2.

Can preexisting materials for instance include a dialogue system (which is a collection of files I've created myself before)?

Or like a file that handles movement? 

Perhaps I'm just confused on the definition of a plug in and if it needs to be publicly available.

Thanks

Hey I loved the concept, look, and feel of the game. The main character is so bouncy!

Definitely enjoyed the whimsical elements like the crow. Let us know if you guys plan on expanding this~

Game is 'released' and free to be played (though it's unfinished)

This event is really taking a toll. I'm not sure how much I'll be able to finish by tomorrow but I've learned so much!

Here's how my game is looking so far (I'm not sure if sound is included but I also found some jazzy music):

 Tomorrow I may just focus on porting to web and fixing up messy code. I'm not sure how much polishing

or extending I'll do.

So I spent quite a while doing some Asset work.

(Assets for the latte pouring mini game)

Latte pouring mini-game in action:


Not sure how I'm going to do the milk. I was thinking of simulating it using particles or 'metaballs', but that may just be overkill. Finding out how to simulate fluid in a non processing heavy way in Godot is hard. Also the game jam ends tomorrow and there is so much left to do.

The deadline for the game jam is fast approaching so I'm starting to feel the heat. I'm kind of reeling over the fact that I don't have the core game mechanic for my game set up. I've spent the majority of the time implementing auxiliary features here and there. Not as much focus was put on it being fun. 

Luckily, I have decided to have the game's core mechanic revolve around pouring. It seems like how steamed milk is poured into cup, is one of the major skills of baristas. Milk pouring skills also help when it comes to making latte art. I was thinking of doing a quick time (-ish) event mini game that involves pouring milk.

My design for the game looks like this:

A potential solution was to use the TextureProgress Bar provided. But you can't really fill in the progress bar in the middle. I was finally able to come to a solution using various ColorRects. See below.

Here's the base for the event using some ColorRect objects in Godot:


These are the main coffee types so far that baristas will be able to make (the spooky names are yet to be determined):

Mocha
* Milk foam
* Steamed milk
* Chocolate
* Expresso
Latte
* Milk foam
* Steamed milk
* Expresso
Flat White
* Milk foam
* Steamed milk
* Double Expresso
Cappaccino
* A lot of milk foam
* Steamed milk
* Double Expresso

We'll see how implementing this works...

Wow, seeing the progress in this thread is a journey!

One of the things I have been working on is navigation, both for the player and for the customers (indicated by the Godot icon). When you play, you can click on the 

different coffee stations (currently missing except for the brewing machine) to add ingredients. I'm using a Navigation2D node. The script is based off of this tutorial:

Super useful for the game I'm currently making.

Ugh that's a good idea! I'm going to be brainstorming spoopy drinks today~~~

Hi itch.io community!


I'm actually a substantial way through my game so far, but I have quite a ways to go. This game was inspired by the Brewster's coffee mini-game in Animal Crossing. The concept was also inspired from the Thymine's cover for famicase:

Trying My Best Is Very Hard

(so cute!)

I want to make a narrative focused memory game, where the main character "Blue" works as a budding and insecure barista. The player must handle a sea of coffee orders while remaining calm. The customers include a variety of ghosts with different personalities.


Here is how my game looks now -> Play here https://tadpolily.itch.io/beyond-the-grave-cafe

I love this, especially how inclusive it is. 

This looks great! What engine are you using?

Very wholesome :)

I love this! The graphics, the haughty oohs and aahs, the music It was all very nice. The writing was nice too. It itched my need for a classic english literature  inspired rpg vn that I didn't know I had.

It was a cool twist to play as the bear. You really nailed down the feel. I know the laggy input  may have been part of the feel as well but I think you could improve the gameplay with more responsive input!

This has a really great 'game feel'. The fighting had weight to it which I appreciated. I also loved the music and the graphics (especially the rain effects). It was a really nice atmosphere.

Thanks securas, I had the benefit of doing working on a lot of unfinished games first haha

Okay it seems to be working with the double touch!

Oh that's right. This is my mac so I'm pretty new to the controls. I'll try it out and see if it works

Hey! This looks like an interesting concept. I like strategic games. I'm not sure how to move the units since I have a mac trackpad :p

Hey! I thought the input battle system was a cool/unique idea. I know someone posted that they found out how to beat the battles in 4 turns and that's true. Maybe if you reuse the concept again you could either include more inputs or have inputs associated with a specific attack. I wish there was more!

I love the ending~

Thanks so much! That's encouraging

You're right, the player is kind of left on their own to figure out if a jump is safe or not which is not the best game design.

Thanks for commenting and taking the time to leave some feedback. I'm not sure if I'll revisit this since the code is so messy but I appreciate it nonetheless.

Thanks so much~

Thank you!!!

This is really cute! It's definitely a throwback

Hey thanks for letting me know I missed boundary haha, there is an 'end' where you interact ('press space') with a woman in a room.

The game is lacking in showing the player where they are jumping to and what jumps are dangerous. (It's this area though I know that's not helpful)

This looks great! Though I'm not sure if I'll be able to play it with my mac.

What did you build it with?

Hi,

This is my first game jam. I don't have any art yet but I do have a basic idea and concept. My goal is to just finish a game so I am focusing on starting out very basic and gradually adding features.

Who: Knight and Elf
What: Monsters
When: Medieval Norse TImes
Where: Magical Forest

2-D side scroller she fights monsters to save elf

The game is loosely inspired by norse mythology. A peasant girl is guided by a forest spirit to rescue elf deep in the forest.
A more advanced description would be: A lonely peasant girl receives nightly visions about an ethereal being calling  out for help. As the
cries increase in frequency, she feels compelled to travel to the forest and find the source...

I'll be writing the game in Lua using the Love2d framework.

I'm also looking for a good 2d side scroller tutorial written using love2d if anyone has any links :)
