I'm a hobbyist at this, game development and pixel art that is, meaning I don't put too much time into it and not my first priority. So probably like a lot of you, I have started many projects. Some just to try stuff out; many too over-ambitious. I haven't finished anything.
So the other day I had an idea for a simple little game. The more I thought about it the more I realized I should put all the other projects on hold (that I probably won't finish) and see if I can actually get this idea done.
Why did I create this thread?
- Hold myself accountable
- Help out others by posting progress, event screenshots, and answer questions (like "how did you do that?", so feel free to ask)
- Encouragement or tips from feedback
- I like to share. People can try out the game if they think its cool
So right now is actually end of day 2 (which as a hobbyist that is 2 hours of work per day).
I will go back and explain more when I get a chance but here are two GIFs for now:
Setup a queue and movement system:
Tap screen and destination will go to back of queue. Once done with one item in queue will proceed to next
First draft of shooting animation:
Not sure if this will be placeholder or close to what I want. Right now just want anything decent so testing is more enjoyable
Once I get time I will go back and explain a little more about what the game will be and/or how some of this was event-ed.
Thanks for reading! More to come soon! (hopefully)
