This list of videos from the posts below
I started this game around January 2017 (after previously messing with C2 for a few months). As i didn't know the first thing about game development , or programming and didn't know much about C2 capabilities there was little point in making a plan. The only plan is that I was going to make a side scrolling shmup.
There still isnt any plan. the way it works is that I have an idea, I try it out, maybe it works maybe it doesn't, if not I try something else.
Everything here is done in with construct events, mostly by following tutorials I have found on the forum and help from forum members and the Scirra devs.
Note to prospective indi game developers!
I dont want to put you off so please note that this dev log is not a real indication of how long things would normally take. If you were able to do this full time you could probably do what i have done below in a few weeks or even days.
I just do this for relaxation as one of my (too many other) hobbies when not at work or doing family / social stuff. I dip in for a few hours a week, mostly on the weekend, usually with an intention of trying to implement something I have been daydreaming about during the week.
I'm not actually sure I will ever make a finished game. There is so much more to it that I ever imagined. But for now it has a life of its own and it will evolve as it wants.
I am just its custodian. A slave to its needs. Lets see where it goes.
