GitHub Game Off 2016 - Day 6

What a day it was! Happy birthday to my cousin! Now because of all the celebrations I did not get to spend a lot of time working on my game, but I did manage to do something. The something I did was to implement some basic gravity, this time much more simpler with the possibility of me using my gravity calculation to show an arrow that points in the direction that gravity is currently pulling your spaceship. ...

GitHub Game Off 2016 - Day 5

I’m disappointed to have to say that today has not been a productive day at all. I haven’t really done anything except catch up on some sleep. I’m also unsure how tomorrow’s progress will be as it’s my cousin’s birthday. As I’m writing this it is still somewhat early and I’m scheduling the post to only be released in 3 and a half hours, so I still might be able to hack on some initial art for the game. ...

GitHub Game Off 2016 - Day 3

Today I started getting basic movement working. Having done this implementation for the Entelect Jam already it was quite quick pulling it in. Unfortunately I did not have time to look at pulling in the calculations for gravity interaction between objects, but that’s most likely going to take a few days to tweak so I’m not that worried. Unfortunately I’ve also not had time or tools installed to get some concept art into the game yet so I don’t have any screenshots yet. ...

GitHub Game Off 2016 - Day 2

So it has happened that day 2 has come and gone. I haven’t written any code, but I did have quite some time to contemplate on what I’d like to build. It was a day filled mostly with punting about some game ideas with colleagues contemplating what we’d like to achieve with this game jam. Some ideas I’ve committed to building a small little space exploration game, but I was unsure what mechanics I’d use to build on top of that. ...

GitHub Game Off 2016 - Day 1

This is something that flew a bit under my radar and left me with somewhat mixed feelings when I found out about it two weeks ago. Before I delve into what this is I just want to note that the Node.js and EventStore Part 2 & 3 are still in the works, I’ve just put it on the backburner for now as GameDev is where it’s at for me. The GitHub Game Off 2016 is a month long game jam run by, you guessed it, GitHub. ...
