RECALIBRATING…

New Hosting, new Luck, I guess.
So now that this blog is blank, let’s fill it once again, shall we? A lot of time has passed, some things have happened and progress has certainly been made.

Where I’ve been

Let’s start with what I’ve done over the last two years. Wow, that’s been a long time, and there has happened quite a lot, but nothing worth showing really. Just yet. It’s getting there, believe me.
I worked on getting my „entries“ that were meant for LD39, LD40 and js13k2019 done. Well maybe not that last one, since it didn’t really get anywhere. But the LD39 one is coming along nicely so far.

As a reminder, the original theme for that jam is „running out of power“. I’ve set the goal to build a dungeon crawler where actions require power, and you have to reach the end of the level before you run out of power. All that with a small scope of content in mind I thought was a good fit for a jam.

Well, my attempt at creating it during the jam failed …quite spectacularly. And now that time is out the equation it was supposed to get more content, then it got reworked because it didn’t work out and so on and so forth. Long story short it was running in circles and got shelved not long after. Fast forward a few years and a graduation later I picked it back up, now in Godot Engine, an engine I’m much more comfortable with and now things get actually done. Sometime next week I will write about it. most definitely. Maybe. Hopefully.

Where to go from now

So first of all, I’m trying my luck at another jam, and no I won’t learn my lesson. It’s gotta work eventually. Tomorrow is the start of the Stay Safe! Jam, a Game Jam dedicated to staying at home during the current situation with that human malware.

It’s going on for the coming weekend and hopefully something playable comes around. I’ll be using Godot Engine 3 for this jam since it’s the engine I’m most comfortable with right now. I’ve got my setup ready so now all that’s left to do is to wait for the jam to start.

So, I guess that covers the most important things? See you this weekend. Until then, stay safe, stay healthy, stay at home, stay hydrated, you get the idea.
