Crawl, worm, crawl ! [Finished]

This is where the games and development logs go! :D

Crawl, worm, crawl ! [Finished]

Postby Pol » Sun May 26, 2013 1:10 pm

I absolutely wanted to take part in this jam but, due to a screwed up schedule, I'm only jumping in right now. One day and a half before the deadline. Yup.
So I'm doing something very simple, with light gameplay and only a few different assets. It's a kind of simplified QWOP-like horrible "runner" where you play a worm trying to escape its tragic fate *insert pathos here*.

In terms of art style, I will probably do something similar to my ludum dare game with simple vector graphics.

Here is a first prototype of the game (flash, playable online)
There only is the "core mechanic" for now, no victory condition or anything. Don't hesitate to give feedback though !
In particular, I'm not sure if one can understand what to do easily enough, even if it's normal to have to struggle a little bit at the very beginning.
Back to wooork !

Got a fish !
The core of the game is here, now I'm gonna get some sleep (1 o'clock in the morning down here). Tomorrow will be the time to add some stupid graphic effects (already got some in the end, but shhh-no spoilers !) and all the menu/interface stuff. Also, music and sounds... I suck at it, no idea how I will deal with it ._.
Hell, it's really relaxing not to have a strict time limit.

DONE [flash]

Featuring some awful sound design, as expected. AND SCREENSHAKE.

Hey Pol,

Actually the moment you start, whatever day that is, your deadline is 7 days from then, so it's ok to start later than the others. There's a maximum of 2 weeks (from the 27th) for submissions.

Yep, I know, but I've got quite a lot of stuff to do, so I don't want to spend much time on the jam. I would have liked to do something bigger - and more polished, but I can't. I have to focus on another project for now.
(Oh yeah, if you want to know a lil'bit more about it : I am currently developing a game with some friends of mine for a french video game contest, in Unity. Here's our page. Also, we need facebook likes to win... :3)

Le concours Hits Playtime, organisé par Le Monde (le journal). C'est ouvert uniquement aux élèves d'écoles de jeu vidéo françaises, donc ça n'a pas une énorme visibilité.
