For the first day I was at work-work at the start of the Jam and after I got out I had 4 hours before bed. This Alakajam event is aimed at testing my physics engine in a real-world game situation. In the first few hours I hooked my level-editor up to work on the project and loaded a level into the world. Then I got the physics engine fired up and created volumes for the objects in the level.
I started working on camera/player movement, but really didn't get far and was not happy with the results, so first on today's list will be creating an orbital camera then figuring out the crazy maths to get the player moving in the right directions the way I envision.
Come watch me live on twitch! and say hello!
As normal I will be streaming all my developments on https://www.twitch.tv/timbeaudet so follow there!
The themes seem to be a swarm around sailing on a ship over the waves of the ocean. The clouds will come from wind and rain on your paths to the moon. Travel with your map so separation is not a problem. Play your cards right and this generation will swap chains like clockwork.
Not sure the themes are fun but I will be testing out my new physics engine which barely has balls working.
For this Alakajam I am focused on creating a Cutscene Editor tool for my framework; Turtle Brains. It will be a fully featured editor with undo/redo and the ability to manipulate time and space for the sprites and objects that build a cutscene. With this tool I plan to make a very small game from cutscenes I create while testing.
Come join live and see what it is all about; https://www.twitch.tv/timbeaudet
Tools being used:
Visual Studio Code
I will be working on my long term project for the unranked division. Specifically focusing the effort on level design, perhaps even with Towers in mind.
As is typical I will be streaming all the development at https://www.twitch.tv/timbeaudet for those interested in joining!

Hello Alakajammers, it is your host TimBeaudet!
If you haven't yet, START YOUR ENGINES! 🚗🚘 It is now time to sort the top-10 themes into the order you most wish them to be.
Joining us this weekend? Then write up your very own "I am In" post. Let everyone know who you are, what tools you use and what theme you wish to win! 🏁
Drive safe, have fun and good luck!
If anyone has the patience to try, does the authorization with your itch.io account work? (no need to donate unless you really wish to, doing so gives a thank-you sign)
Will again be participating in an unranked fashion as I'll be working with the art I'm creating for Tombstone Boo! and tossing the game together during the jam weekend.
I will be using:
Game Development tools are always growing in this development arena, and this weekend is no exception. I will be working on the TurtleBrains game dev framework Interface kit for user interfaces; buttons, checkbox, dropdowns and the like for use in actual games.
