Controls so far:
draw a circle with the mouse - Make a storm
press K - Kite flies by
Press B - Birds fly by
press A - airplane flies by
Numbers 1-9 do different atmosphere colors (1-4 go from daytime to nighttime sequentially)
These are just pieces of the game. Now I need to assemble them into something that is fun. For instance, i need to have a new gesture to make the plane fly by, or something. The environment is looking how i want it to, but it needs gameplay to work. That's next on my to-do list.
This is a little something I've been playing with. It's more of a sandbox toy than a game, but perhaps you'll find it interesting.
I was really stressed yesterday, so I made this and the game really relaxed me.
You can make clouds by dragging your mouse. You get small puffy clouds with the left button and more wispy ones with the right button. You can draw pictures in the sky, which is fun for a while, and you can also cause a rain storm (and makes the sky gray and cloudier), and make the sun come out. By drawing a circle you can cause the rain storm. I want to keep adding interactions like that though, and perhaps even add objectives (or things to collect). Drawing things and having them show up is half of the fun of this game. Right now you can just mess around with it, but that's pretty much it. It's more a proof of concept than anything else.
I want to add a distant airplane flying by, maybe some birds, and a night time scene with stars and shooting stars.
I made all the graphics in Photoshop. The music is not mine, I got it off of Soundsnap, but I plan on composing something myself.
Also, after you get bored, you can hit 1,2, and 3, to change the sky's color. They were just test buttons that changed colors, just to make sure they were working properly.
