Time Chicken Submission 28th Oct 2018
Looking at the spellbook to know what spells to type.
Because I gave myself yesterday off. I never claimed to be smart.
python -m pip install pygame
Day One Complete
Installed Python 3.7
Trawled the docs: Pygame.org (External)
Sorted a massive Trello Board (External)
Got a good start...
Day Two Complete
Day 2 has been fruitful as well as joyous.
Enjoying PyWeek so far!
Day Three Complete
Actual picture of the Time Chicken Code
Day Four Complete
Day Five Complete
Would certainly have liked to be more social but it's quite tiring work!
Today was less spectacular development so tomorrow's final push should clean things up nicely...
PyWeek 26 Complete
The final game is definitely an example of code-first think-later but it works every time I run it so I can only hope that counts for something.
Insanely tired now but here's a software-captured (read: lots of dropped frames) gameplay video anyway:
Looking forward to trying some of the other entries (and not so much to seeing how bad my code is in comparison)
Running Time Chicken
I updated the description with some vague clues for running, please let me know if there are any issues.
You used KUKAREKU. It was not very effective.
In the last 10 minutes before submission (as all good game-breaking stories start) I changed the image "Assets\Images\spell3.png" to be a 1x1px image so it would be invisible.
Foolish. It's too small for the spell to successfully hit anything.
Simply change the image to anything bigger than 1x1px and it will work (e.g. copy "Assets\Images\rock.png" and rename it "Assets\Images\spell3.png" or ideally replace "Assets\Images\spell3.png" with a 100x100px transparent image)
Doesn't ruin the whole game but kukareku (a high-damage, close range attack) is useless without a patch.
