Night of day 5 - Zero gameplayI really messed up this time.
I have no gameplay so far because I've been constantly working on art. I was too ambitious with the game. The game is somewhat graphics-heavy, and I went with the pixel art route. I have some art, and it's looking quite nice for my standards. But making art is taking too much time, and I have barely touched the code.
I'm not sure you'll see a completed game from me. I can't even disguise it because there's a lot to do for the core of the game and most of the things to cut are quite important to the gameplay. But I'll do whatever I can to at least submit a half game. (If only the theme were "half sovereign", maybe I could've gotten away with this... :P "Get off my half lawn!")
I'm not making a new game because I really like where this idea took me (I think the game design ended up quite nice, too, but I'm not sure you'll get to see the whole of it), and I at least want to show it to you guys, even if it doesn't come with a complete game (which means low ratings, but I'm more after the comments). Wish me luck.
Oh, and I might as well tell the core idea now. Not coming with a screenshot, unfortunately. It's quite simple, actually: you control a haunted mansion and you have to spook families and investigators out of your "lawn". The gameplay is strategy and resource management (yes, you need resources to do your spooky things). I'll leave the details for later.
