Luckily it's still running. After 3 years, game programming as a career is definitely not a thing I want to do anymore (web/app dev is a lot of fun). GM is still fun to mess around with. Secret blog is secret.
Anywho, like many 64D members, i'm going to college :D To be more specific, i'm off to UC Riverside to study computer science. Yeah, pretty much the same major everyone is taking. I also bought a new/cheap laptop for school. It's the Toshiba Satellite L645D-S4036 and i'm liking it so far.
I still have a few weeks before I start school so, in order to do something productive, I entered a GM competition over at GMG. The competition ends right before I go to school which is somewhat perfect. I picked trash-based, side-scrolling, survival game. Screenshot:
Fun little project.
I also need some help. I'm still working on Seven (also known as this):
I feel kinda stuck gameplay wise. So far it's just a generic platformer. I really can't think of any gameplay ideas. Can you guys help me come up with some interesting.....stuff? I've come up with some awesome boss ideas but other than that bleh. The story: Your grandpa gets kidnapped, you go after him, you find him, turns out he's a fake and you were just an experiment (the 7th one, like the matrix plus one), they try to destroy you, you win (or lose?). Not really a writer :/ Here's a demo of the game (not really just you jumping and stuff, has some bugs):
V: shoot bullet 2
C: shoot bullet 1
X: some bomb experiment
So Twinsoul gave me the idea to create a game in two hours and so I did......kinda. It took me more like 3 hours and 30 minutes to make but whatever......point is it's done. Not the greatest game but it was the only thing I could think of.
Get Away From My Gold!
Mouse --- Point
C Key --- Shoot
Also, I've been working on this other game for a month now and I plan on finishing it as my new years resolution. It's called Seven (name inspired by Seinfeld). Here is a screenshot:
I'll be updating the project page whenever I can.
That's pretty much it. Later.
