Thursday 22nd of may 2014

Today I worked on the grub banger ending screen, again. Hey are you interested in phone app type games? and let me guess you also are a fan of German culture and you can understand the German language?
why not check out www.fettspielen.de

(they gave me a review)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuesday 20th of may 2014

I worked on grub banger again today. I made new music for some of the levels, made bug fixes, Cleaned up the in between screens, started work on a complex end screen. I made a new game, which is a dating simulator where you choose different conversation choices. Unfortunately I don't think I can release it for a while because it's based on people I know, and
Iím worried they might be offended by it, not that it's so offensive.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wednesday 14th of may 2014

worked on grub banger again today, I coded the "super power up" I don't know why Iíd been putting it off, well actually I thought it would be difficult to do, but it wasn't so hard. I fixed a bug in stage 2, not really a bug, but there was an unnecessary object using alot of memory. Iím trying to work out the narrative in grub banger, thereís 2/3 new levels on the cards but I can't decide which one makes the narrative work best. I also animated the dancing character between stages, Properly. Before it was just a crappy placeholder animation.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuesday 13th of may 2014

today I worked on grub banger, I composed some music for the levels, I need more songs though, and some songs need more work. added a custom font for the flowers collected score. Made the score crop properly if you get over 100 flowers. Added some minor improvements, gave the wasp a minor transition from flying to being captured, added some vines/roots around the text screens. I changed the ad code in monkey egg so gambling ads don't show up.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Saturday 10th of may 2014

I worked on grub banger, Iím polishing it. I drew some nicer buttons on the tile screen, changed the font on stage 4, made some game play alterations, fixed some minor bugs.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Friday 9th of may 2014

added some background graphics to grub banger stage four, started cleaning up the bird animation. really not much creative work done today. wasted most of the day researching promotion for mobile apps and writing emails. Incase you hadn't worked it out Iím trying to get on the phone app bandwagon. I'd rather be working on Sunfish 2 right now but I really need to start getting some money. Conditions are pretty dire here. Right now im freezing, the room im renting has holes in the walls (which contain asbesdos) so it's rather poorly insulated. Also my computer is set up on the floor on a milk crate.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thursday 8th of may 2014

I redrew the title screen of grub banger, Im quite happy with it now. I made a number of small improvements to grub banger stage 2.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wednesday 7th of may 2014

spent most of the day sending emails to review sites trying to get reviews for "Monkey Egg" animated a death "Effect" for grub banger stage 2. tried to port color scope onto android, unfortunately it is beyond my abilities at this time.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuesday 6st of may 2014

I uploaded a video of game play footage of monkey egg onto youtube. I uploaded "monkey egg" onto the google play store, a few days ago.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Friday 1st of may 2014

today i fixed up the parallax and added the vector movement for the caterpillar game. the movement still needs some tweaking but Iím not feeling up to doing it atm, i couldn't sleep last night.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thursday 1st of may 2014

animated and coded the 10th enemy for the caterpillar game. Added some code for all the enemies. coded carrot, watermelon, eggplant, and onion powerups. added some extra code to the grim reaper. started work fixing the parallax on stage 2. Drew some new clouds for the parallax sky. made a start on a level in revenge of the sunfish 2 that I have had planned for a long time.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wednesday 30th of April 2014

it's been the longest time since I last entered in the work diary. I don't know why I stopped, I think it was because I got carried away in designing projects. also none of them were sunfish 2 related. Sometimes I just need to work on new projects. In the last month I created a new game about a monkey, which is a phone game. Iíve tested it and it works on android phones however I won't be releasing it for a while because there is a technical issue i have yet to resolve, actually not related to the game itself but to the google app store actually. I also started a new game about a caterpillar, which I have been working on today. I also created "colorscope" which I just released on my website. Tomorrow Iím hoping to complete the caterpillar game and release it. Then Iím going to resume work on "Skiggy zone" and periodically work on ROTSF2 thats the plan. All I need to do with the caterpillar game is : finish one final enemy, code different power up gfx, code super mode, redraw the flying leaf stage, clean the parallax on level two, change the movement on stage to to vector movement, clean up the end screen, add variation to the game stages. I also uploaded a new music video to youtube today called "splinters" however I may re-upload it because the quality is very low and doesnít do justice to the video I made.

Wednesday 29th of January 2014

I updated the site with a new page called "artwork" it contains images from my videos and bandcamp track covers. to be honest Iím a bit disillusioned with both band camp and you tube. I did the videos and songs as an experiment, but I guess it failed, since It didn't generate much interest. im going to put all my time and energy into my own site and my own games again now. also sorry about sunfish 2 taking so long. Yes Iím working on a new game now "skiggy zone", and this might dishearten some people, but I have to make this game at this time, once it's finished (in a few months) I will return to Sunfish. Development hasn't stopped on Sunfish 2, Iím planning things out carefully on paper and in my mind. My games are expressive personal and different and It takes time for me to develop them. I finished character screen 9 of "skiggy zone". started drawing a door leading to character screen 9. coded the door leading to character screen 9. Started work on level 9 of "skiggy zone".

I didn't get much done today. I was distracted by people and animals around me, I managed my time poorly. The Friend of mine who was in a psychiatric hospital on new years ever was released today. They visited me unannounced and recounted their experiences while in hospital. This took up my time, it also put me in a mood that wasn't conducive to creativity. later in the day I made a new music/animation video called "bark" but I haven't uploaded it yet. I created some art for stage five of "skiggy zone" and I worked on a frog enemy.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Saturday 4th of January 2014

I drew and coded a door that leads to the character screen that I designed yesterday. I started making the 5th level, designing the map, drawing gfx.

Tuesday 31 of December

A close friend of mine attempted suicide and I had to take them to the hospital. I was too stressed out to get any work done today.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sunday 29th of December

Today I created the forth "character interaction" screen for the game "Skiggy Zone". Previously I was calling these cut scenes, Well my vision of how the game works has changed slightly now. since you can now re-visit levels the cut scenes are no longer intermissions in a linear game, they are more conversations with game characters (albeit fairly superficial ones) so their not cut scenes anymore rather, character interaction screens. In case you haven't noticed Iím alternating between creating game play levels and character interaction screens every day. tomorrow I will design game play level 4. and on Tuesday I will be making another character interaction screen. How many am I going to do? Probably 30 game levels, and I don't know how many interaction screens. At this rate I guess It will take about a month, but I think it's worth it. Iím really happy with is game, I think it has a fresh feel to it, and besides which Iíve always wanted to make a 3d game. Iíve learnt much about 3d game design doing this game, it's been very exciting for me. hopefully I can make some more 3d games after I finish this one(after I complete Rotsf2), also they can easily be ported to android.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Saturday 28th of December

Today I created level 3 and coded, the door connections between level 3 and level 2.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Friday 27th of December

Today I worked on the next cut scene for "Skiggy Zone" game. I finished the cut scene. I started working on the code logic for returning to levels through doors. finished the code for returning to levels, + coded savepoints. Started designing level 3.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thursday 26th of December

Today I designed the second level of "Skiggy Zone". There are now 2 levels and 2 cut scenes.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wednesday 25th of December

Today was wasted by Christmas family trivialities.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuesday 24th of December

Today I worked on the cut scene level at the beginning of level 2 for the first person 3d game. The games actually called "Skiggy Zone" so I'll start calling it that in these notes from now on. I completed the 2nd cut scene level. Next to complete is level 2. I figure after about 30 levels the game will be completed. at this rate it will take probably 2 months since Iíve been finishing about a level a day. Since the games engine is now completed it's also considerably easier, making the models and 2d graphics still takes time though. I started a basic map for stage 2.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Monday 23rd of December

today I worked on the new first person 3d game that Iím doing. I coded some plat forming action. I added some trees. I added many objects that make up the map. I added some bee enemies. I added the level ending. I finished the first level of the first person 3d game today.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wednesday 18th of December

I finished animating the sausage roll creature for the pink one eye level in ROTSF2. I started a new game, since I wanted to release a new game before Christmas. No one is going to stop me! :) Even If this ends up not a very good game I am determined to finish it, since it's been a while sine I released a new game. After hours of programming I completed the title screen of the new game. I am very pleased with it. Now Iím working on the storyline screen.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuesday 17th of December

I animated a new character for the pink one eye level, a sort of hot dog bun creature, I also drew a building that it lives in, this will count as one of the 115 objects. the building needs more drawing work and the creature needs to be animated from other angles. I wrote a new song called deep sea candle, I created a film clip for it, and uploaded it onto my you tube channel. I finished drawing the house for the hot dog bun creature. I animated the hot dog bun creature moving facing forward, needs to be colored in though.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Monday 16thof December.

I animated an orange type character walking up and left and right, this is the same character I animated on Saturday, previously It was lacking the animation for facing up and left and right. it's for the pink one eye level with the 115 objects. I made one of the objects in the pink one eye level turn into a bunny under certain circumstances. I added another character to the pink one eye level. A green creature with a long snout. I animated it exploding and gave it some code. thereís now 3 out of 115 objects. I tried to create a new level where your a knight and you have to joust living organic cars, I didn't get far. I added a red creature to the 115 object level. It lacks code. 4/115

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Saturday 14th of December

I animated 14 frames of a character exploding. I added the character to the level with the pink one eyed character as the main. Thereís now 3 objects out of the 115 that I decided the level with have. For convenience sake Iím going to say thereís 2 objects since the objects are numbered but object one is called object 0.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Friday 13th of december

I finished animating the blue mouse/rat/dog/monkey for the level with the pink one eyed character. I coded them and also a couple of other things for the same level.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thursday 12th of december

I animated a blue mouse/rat/dog/monkey for the level with the pink one eyed character. You can turn into the blue mouse/rat/dog/monkey under certain circumstances. I created another you tube video and uploaded it to youtube, it's called ministry of pastry.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wednesday 11th of December

Iíve had a cold for the last few days so I haven't gotten much work done. Today I created a new music Video and song called "fulminate" which I uploaded onto my you tube channel. I also did a bit of animation on the main character for the new game i was going to make before Christmas. The characters name is Sue. Im not sure If I should really start a new game at this point, especially with the expectation that I finish sunfish 2 sometime soon. However If I get tired of the new game, I might just make what I accomplish on it a new stage in Rotsf 2.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Monday 9th of December

I drew some gfx for the pink one eyed character procedurally generated maze level, I also did some code for this level. I created a new psychedelic video clip called disabled Jelly fish which I posted on you tube, I also posted 4 songs onto my bandcamp page. Iv'e been considering starting a new game with the intention of finishing it before Christmas, Iíve written down some ideas and Iím just thinking about it now. Advanced midget simulator didn't really get a very good response I think maybe an adventure type game might do better. Also Iím wondering if I should code it straight for android, i don't want to because I don't own an android and I actually like the pc as a gaming platform, but perhaps id' expand my audience if I did this.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sunday 8th of December

today I drew some gfx for the pink one eyed character procedurally generated maze level. I animated a new character for this level. I added 2 of the 115 objects needed for this level.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Friday 6th of December

I coded the map to change the way it looks for the pink one eye random maze level, I also added some more instances to the code (if statements) thereís 115 now, none of them do anything yet but I want to code each of them to make things happen in the level. Why 115? well it's relative to the size of the random map, with 115 it shouldn't be too sparse, but next time I think I'll make the map smaller. I animated the pink one eyed character walking and added it to this level. map Here's a screen shot of the levels map on one permutation. blank squares are empty rooms, also it's possible that multiple instances are on top of each other, but you can't tell since one would cover up the other, although the program can still read this. I added the character interaction animation (what happens when you press spacebar) for the pink one eye character. I wrote a program that comes up with ideas for characters for this level. seeing as I need about 115 objects I thought I might need some help. How does it come up with ideas? it's a number of partial sentences that represent different ideas that display randomly, combinations of ideas that I wouldn't think up on my own should appear since it connects the ideas randomly. it has 3 parts and each has 16 different ideas so the total number of idea combinations equals 16*16*16 equals4096 unique ideas.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thursday 5th of December.

Im trying to develop a new style today, it's been difficult so far, I feel like im on the verge of a breakthrough but I still can't quite grasp it. Iíve seen it in dreams but it won't crystallise, I can only get fragments of what Iím after, but not the whole. I started work a new level, it has a randomly generated map with code I haven't used before. In it your a pink one eyed character, it ties on to another path in sunfish 2. I coded the instances for 105 objects for the pink one eye random maze level, they are only instances though, not actual objects yet. why 105 objects? well i felt it was necessary so the map/maze wouldn't be sparsely populated. wandering around, not encountering anything would be boring for the player, I don't know how long It will take for me to do the actual objects though, probably days, however I think it's worth it, since this map design makes it interesting for me to play, why? well Iíve set up the instances in such a way that the game play will be emergent, and different every time, you see the 105 objects have the potential to interact, firstly their instances may overlap, secondly, I would like to code "if" certain instances interact a third instance will occur. I don't know how many of those I will code, but say I do about ten, 106*106*10 =112360 this is the total number of random permutations, so different game play experiences that are possible, well actually that might not be accurate, but It will be something like that. I came up with a new map concept, a random but consistent map design, it requires 160 rooms though.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wednesday 4th of December

I worked on the level I made the day before where you are a sleeping lizard, drawing background gfx. I created a new room for the section where you are a green rat/bunny character. I designed a new level late at night where you drip green ketchup into some kind of creatures mouth, all the while the background is flashing colours.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuesday 3rd of December

today I created a new level for the "sloth lizard" path in sunfish 2, where you have to wake up in a bunkbed. I didn't finish the level entirely, as there are placeholder gfx that need to be redrawn and replaced. I also Created a short animated clip for the song "friction tape" using fractal frost. Uploaded it to you tube under the tittle "colourful video clip"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Monday 2nd of December

I worked on the level where you are a red faced character (red character with only arms path) and the background has eyes and scrolls in different directions. I also worked on the level where your a yellow haired character, after the thalidomide rules path. I composed a new song called friction tape, uploaded it to my bandcamp page.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Friday 29th of November.

I did some animation for the character with severed arms on the level were you are the blue faced character, worked on the level design for the character with the yellow hair, worked on shading the walking frames I drew a few days ago.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wednesday 27th of November.

again animated the yellow hair character, walking up and down.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuesday 26th of November.

I worked on animation for the yellow hair character following the thalidomide character path. This level is already in a semi completed state, but lacks the layers and character animations.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Monday 25th of November.

I created a new level for ROTSF2 where you have to clean windows on a skyscraper

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Friday 22 of November.

I worked on the kitten minigame today, doing coding and gfx. I finished the kitten minigame, it took all day.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thursday 21th of November

I animated 2 and a half frames of the kitten for the kitten minigame. I created a new level but i didn't finish it. I composed a song called sheepman. I animated a tentacled button on the level where you are a blue face character and a character with severed arms tells you the legend of splorf. I composed a new song called bread locks, I thought It was quite good but then,,, I deleted it by accident,, I guess Iím exhausted, making stupid mistakes like this, Iím annoyed at this turning of events, I still have a lame version of the song,, I meant to delete the lame version, but i ended up deleting the good version..!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wednesday 20th of November

I animated some frames of the kitten for the kitten minigame. I created two new levels for the lizard minigame.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuesday 19th of November

I finished one scene for the Lizard script, (first scene, image of the house) I finished a few frames of animation for the kitten minigame. I added sound effects to the kitten minigame and did the backdrop. added the large power flash effect for the kitten minigame. added the mountain, coded and animated interacting with the mountain. I did a rough animation of the lizard yawning for the lizard script. I made a new song called lobster lobotomy.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Monday 18th of November

I worked on the animation of the kitten for the kitten minigame. I composed a new song called "feasible carrot, which I uploaded onto my band camp page. I wrote a short story script for a lizard section (featuring sloth lizard) in revenge of the sunfish 2. I started animating this Lizard script as a full screen animation, using the impressionistic animation method I developed. I animated the first 2 scenes of the Lizard script.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Saturday 16th of November

Today I created a new game where you trade commodities between different towns. This may be a separate game from ROTSF2 because the game uses the mouse and keyboard and sunfish 2 is supposed to utilise only the keyboard, anyway this game isn't actually finished it's still missing many factors, however quite a bit was done today including the map, town design, player design (albeit rushed) menu screens, shop screen, hostile life forms, collision detection, scrolling, harvestable resources and equipment.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thursday 14th of November

I worked on animating a giant kitten for one of the minigames that connect with the card puzzle minigame, I will call this the kitten minigame from now on. there needs to be 9 minigames.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wednesday 13th of November

designed the rough outlines for 9 minigames that connect to the card puzzle minigame. I previously started one of them, the teleportation minigame with bad controls, but I plan to rework that level and connect it else where since it lack the immediacy that I seek for the card puzzle minigames. I practically finished one of the mini games, which is a bit like lunar lander.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuesday 12th of November

completed the animated film section Iíve been working on. I tried to capture it with virtual dub, however it was dropping frames and the file size was too big for my harddrive. (my harddisk capacity is 152 gigabutes but only a few gigs spare) So in the end I just filmed the monitor with my video camera. The quality was not so bad except the contrast was very high and my monitor was at a slight angle when I filmed, oh well. When I release sunfish 2 people will see the animation properly, with the high detail and the right colours. Ok so I edited the video with some music, and uploaded it on to you tube, it's called Glibert the orange explorer.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Monday 11th of November

today I finished 6 new scenes in the animated section that Iíve been working on. I have only once more scene to do and this section will be completed.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thursday 7th of November

Spent a few hours trying to come up with a new game concept. Created a new level, in it you have to build walls to keep bouncing balls from escaping and Spawning monsters, it's sort of like the arcade game zookeeper, except inverted. I also made changes to a few levels based on a playtest and feedback(Thanks zack!), the level with the 14 powerups received very positive feedback, however it seemed it was too easy to die, so I gave the player a shield at the start of the stage, I also think another shield would be a good idea. the lizard level where you collect dogs, was too hard (the tester died instantly) so I made it start off more slowly and speed up after a few seconds, I also added a second stage to it where you have to collect cats, and the maze is a bit different. Also the stage where your a man and you have to teleport away from monsters so that they crash together was also far too difficult, but I already suspected this, the control system is too convoluted, I need to change it somehow. Worked on the animated clip section, doing the section just after the bank. I composed a song called Mercurial.wav

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wednesday 6 of November

I finished the bank scene for the full screen clip, the eye popping animation and the face melting animation. It currently has 54 scenes. I composed two songs and uploaded them onto my bandcamp page. Churlishous.wav and Fork.wav.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Friday 1st of November.

Once more I worked on the full screen animated clip. Finished the first bank scene. I also did a tiny amount of work on a few stages. I also wrote a story line for the stooped shoulders character just before they ride the bike, there is meant to be a path leading to this split storyline, of course Iíve only written it, no graphics or programming yet. I slept through the alarm. I also drew a new character, although sort of based on a previous character.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thursday 31th of October

I animated the walk cycles, facing up and down, (left and right were already done) for the blue faced character who says "eat more yams" on a split path section. I also worked on the level design for their stage. I also cleaned the animation of one of the characters you encounter on that stage. Composed a song "Coagulate" I also worked on the bank hold up scene, in the animated short film that Iíve been working on, for sunfish 2. Mainly drawing background gfx although I also animated an assassin turning into a block of wood. I didn't get much done today, I wasn't as engaged as I usually am. I think my lack of engagement was a combination of factors. It was sunny today and I sat in the sun, causing lethargy. I also slept in, and I ate some chocolate, which I feel prevented me from concentrating. I think I'll Set an alarm so that I can keep a tighter schedule for tomorrow.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Friday 25th of October

Again I worked on the full screen animated cut scene, it's at the point where the whale is having indigestion. I designed a new level with a blue face character in a red landscape and some monsters that you can talk to. this stage connects with a level already made where you are the blue face character but with no arms and you can say hello and eat more yams. I also drew some furniture for a room with a character sitting on a couch. I also worked on the background layers on a door opening animation for the level where you are a purple faced character who can lick/smile and is in a waiting room, character name "stick Jones"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Friday 30th of August.

made a few changes after some playtesting of the game (thanks Zack for testing) cleaned up the level stats so their easier to read. fixed the stats so they display on different monitors correctly. did lots of programming on midget simulator. tested the game on multiple computers, including a laptop running windows 8. seems to work fine except on the laptop the fade transitions are absent, still this is a minor thing. finished midget simulator!!! YAY!!!

Wednesday 28th of August.

coded the title screen and options in midget simulator. started coding the end of level statistics. Found 2 bugs: bug1=the code for the fish cutting the men doesnít work with multiple fish. bug2=by bashing the mouse buttons you can have a gun and a hand at the same time. fixed bug 2. fixed bug 1, but it kind of slows down the game, i guess it's because in order to find the correct instance it checks the closest instance ..hmm fixed a bunch of bugs. fixed bug 1 by using a collision box, I think it's marginally faster. the game is now playable with increasing difficulty levels. all that needs to be done is the game over screen. also the percentage stat isn't accurate, you can get 120 percent (??) did a game over screen but it's a bit rushed.

Created a level based on the arcade game "tube panic" Involves 3d parallax and enemies coming at the player from the distance. Level is unfinished. not sure if I should make this a shooting type level or exploration, I think it would be fun as a shooter, however I feel thereís too much shoot em up action in rotsf2 I want to make the objective less action orientated.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuesday 26, march 2013

Created 3 new levels called alien high school year future plague. this needs more work. Youíre supposed to walk around an alien high school and interact in random situations.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuesday 19, march 2013

added a turning between frame for the robot parallax level. did some coding on the platform engine it uses, still a bit buggy though. did an animation for a large purple monster wearing an orange hat, it's for the level where green snakes and octopi randomly attack, so now it has snakes, octopus and purple monsters. I think it still needs some more enemies.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Monday 18, march 2013

today I did some programming on the "robot parallax" level, code for climbing walls, has a bug though. replaced the background with a tile set so that I could create a large map more easily.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Saturday 16, march 2013

finished the metal detector character climbing animation. finished coding the metal detector character for climbing the wall. worked on newsong27 a bit, even though I know I have enough music for rotsf2 I still like making new songs. now that I have all 1000 songs, I feel I can take my time on any additional songs, for example working on them over a few days, or weeks rather than writing them in a few hours. added walking through door on the caterpillar wall level. this room is now complete.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Friday 15, march 2013

designed a new section where the player has to "build a house" the house is used as a level map in a platform level. created a new section where a "crab donkey" asks the player to help express their feelings, using colored lard. section feels a bit rough around the edges. needs more polish.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuesday 12, march 2013

started animating the character who initially has a metal detector, climbing to the side. needs more frames. designed a 16 room section, where the player has to press arrow keys and spacebar quickly to follow a pattern, levels are interjected with a guy talking and rotating images of kittens. quite happy about this bit, reminds me of a dream I had. Needs to be tested by someone with poor reflexes so I can get the difficulty right but I quite like it the way it is.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Monday 11, march 2013

animated the character who initially has a metal detector, climbing upwards and downwards. created two new levels but only in a draft state, you can wander around in them, see a few characters ect, they are pathways for the green one eye character.

Wednesday, 6th march 2013

I decided to keep a log of all the work completed each day at the end of every day. This hopefully will make for an interesting read, will motivate me to do more work and will help me to keep track of what needs to be done. By updating my site with this information I might keep people interested in the project without uploading actual games. today, converted a midi (forgot which one, 900 and something) into mod format, sounded good. shaded the walking animation of stage two of the red sausage path. Did some walls and trees for stage two of the sausage path. drew a caterpillar that hints you about climbing a wall, detailed the screen the caterpillar is featured on.
