Day #1 and #2

Today is the morning of day #3. I thought I'd quickly write about the first 2 days.

Day #1 - Sunday

We're a team of co-workers at Atlassian. Sunday was our weekend so we were all pretty busy with other things. Shortly after the theme announcement (10am), I committed a "Hello World" Pyglet app to our repository so that we had a place to start from.

The rest of the day was just writing some ideas on our internal wiki.

Day #2 - Monday

Some of us got together on Monday night to talk about ideas. We decided on creating a tower defence game but the enemies are based on genetic algorithms.

Enemies will have 3 attributes:
  • Health
  • Armour
  • Speed

Towers will be able to attack different amounts of each attribute. The fitness function will be how far the enemy gets.

We think that this will challenge that player to try and balance their tower defence strategy while also trying to attack the enemies in the best way.

I got home and started writing a bit of the rendering and game loop code. This is what I have as of this morning:
