Final UpThis time around I left all the artwork until the last day. Bad move...
I'm pretty bad at the artwork, and its probably the hardest part for me. Having to do it all at once is like torture! I should have interspersed it a bit more.
I'm a realist, and I understand this entry has about zero chance of placing well. On the other hand, I met my goal of using some new tools this time around. I did throw together a little beat for the game using LMMS, and the aliens are all rendered and animated using Blender. My code this time around also is a bit more robust, and there are hints of how much more the game should have included (other weapons, other aliens, etc...).
I'm happy with the entry, though. Hopefully someone out there has a satisfying couple-of-minutes playing my game.
