Preparing for Alakajam Tournament 0

bradur • 8 months ago on 7th Alakajam Tournament 

So since our game Path of the Shaman is going to be one of the tournament games we thought it could use some tweaks. Here's a list of fixes that the Post Jam Fix (WebGL) has:

  • Local high scores for both modes
  • Fixes for some freezes
  • Music no longer starts from the beginning after a restart but instead keeps on going
  • Endless mode changes (the one that should be played in tournament!):
    - Now starts faster and has a faster max speed.
    - Speed indicator to see how fast the game is going.
    - The slow "prepare for controls" animation is now only enabled in story mode. Should make endless mode feel snappier.

Happy shrooming!

Dungeon generation 0

So me and @Juutis decided to take a stab at some procedural stuff this jam. We are trying to create a sort of a roguelite. Here's the dungeon generator at its current form:

As you can see it takes a couple of tries to find a suitable configuration of rooms (I've set it to require at least 3 rooms for now so that there is an end and a start). I'm also removing dead ends because they do not good gameplay make.

I'm gonna try! 0

My first venture into 3D. It's gonna be hard to get something playable out, but I'm motivated!
Blender is still so difficult to use and I need a tutorial for everything but I'm going to make every model myself anyway.

Here's a gif of what I've got after a couple of nights.

I'm going to follow the theme and make the story the main focus.
See you on the other side!

I had grand plans for 1st Kajam: https://alakajam.com/post/235/a-la-kajam.
How did it turn out? Well, I managed to get a game out, and there is some polish to it, but nowhere near to what I had in mind.
It seems working on a game for a month or so is much harder than working on a game for just a weekend.

It was a pleasant experience anyhow, so no regrets.
