My entry - tested with Python3, should work with python2. Please just run main.py
I'm satisfied with the apparent final game's quality, but the lack of testing time makes me dread undetected bugs appearing when users are playing...
Well, I did not manage to test the game with Python2.x, nor to add sound effects or music, and procedural vessel generation... In the end the actual game content differs a lot from my initial ambitions, but I would say this is "normal" for gaming challenges. I will upload a more complete version in a few weeks I hope.
Before last day
The good news is that so far I managed to make the game just as I wanted it to be ; the bad news is that I barely fulfilled half of the initial planned features for the game.
I will probably spend the entire saturday to code, it's 4am now and I need to sleep.
The choice of using a "fake" 3D engine using only CPU caused several technical issues that I should have predict. But now I think it's okay, I will try to complete a minimal game as soon as possible.
Written before challenge start: In my last submissions, I tried to innovate with the type of game, but in the end there were not so fun to play. This time I'll for sure (almost) adopt a more traditional gameplay, focusing on the fun-to-play aspect of the game. Another certainty: I will use the same library as the other times : www.thorpy.org. Note: I've put a random name for the entry...
After challenge start: The full title is : The Phantom Racer : rised from the death. This is a racing game with some procedural content and parts, with which you can improve your vessel in order to win the intergalactic championship. You start from a national, noob cup, he you trie to reach the top level. The scenario and the gameplay will (are planned) to be inspired by the theme : "The Lesser of Two Evils".
From a technical point of view, I plan to use a fake 3D engine written in pure python and using cpu for rendering into pygame.
