Minima Bomber PostMortem

Minima Bomber: Day 7 Progress

The final ability in the game: The Air Run

Well there’s only a few hours left in the final day of coding for the Experimental Gameplay project game.  Minima Bomber is finished.  There’s 16 levels, 6 abilities, 4 enemies/hazards, and 2 backgrounds/worlds (if you will – they are both grass themed and lame though).  The online highscore system is working and will hold and […]

Minima Bomber: Day 6 Progress

Missiles were added yesterday; there

Another very productive day brings Minima Bomber nearly to completion.  The good news is that the final 2 upgrades were added into the game along with an originally unplanned online highscore database (not 100% done).  Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to really add or code any decent enemy AI, though I was able to add […]

Minima Bomber: Day 5 Progress

devlog 8.24.2009

I worked on Minima Bomber on Friday and got a lot done. The best new feature is that your character’s damage is displayed by how much clothing he’s wearing (sort of a la Ghouls and Goblins). If you’re in your undies, it means that you’re one hit away from meeting your bloody death. I have […]

Day 4 Progress on Bare Minimum Platformer Game

Our little hero blows up like a balloon of blood when he falls in […]

Day 3 Progress on Bare Minimum Game

devlog 8.12.2009

Day 3 was mostly spent pretty-ing up the game and working on the tutorial/beginning levels.  I have a whopping 3 levels drawn/done.  No major game coding was done, though I spent a lot of time animating the main character.  He’s almost done now. The game is still too bare bones and I definitely need to […]

Day 2 of 7-Day Game: Bare Minimum

devlog 8.8.2009

I did not make nearly as much progress as I was hoping for on Saturday, but I did stamp out a few bugs and got everything looking a little better.  The prototype can now load in .bmp and .png images for all the gaming layers (collision mask, background graphics, and foreground) so creating the levels […]
