Day 7

Unbelievable!


I finished game 8 hours before deadline. There was some troubles with pyinstaller but I googled workaround.

Time to relax. And to draw better levels :)

Day 6

I not finished game yet. I have no start menu, no sound, no winning condition, do dead condition.

But magic works! I have several levels. It looks cool!

Today I need to finish alpha version.

Day 3 - need more code.

Good news.

- If you can play https://quickdraw.withgoogle.com/ then you can draw a good sprite set for pyweek.
- Tiled Map Editor is very useful. It has good file format for tiles and maps. I do not need to write map editor. I'm afraid using it a lot is kind of cheating. It is Tiledweek, not pyweek.

Bad news.

- I added many tiles and frame rate drops to 30 FPS.
- Enthusiasm exhausted.

Eye protection required.

I'm using pyglet, kolourpaint, GIMP, Tiled Map Editor, QtCreator with pyqtc and 10 years old notebook.


Surprisingly I can't fill 640x480 screen with dynamic tiles keeping 60 FPS. Even manually with OpenGL.

My CPU and GPU are fast enough. Bottleneck is in link between them. I do not intent to change (crash, burn and destroy) map content during gameplay. So placing entire map in one Batch is ok.


My drawings is awful. I can't draw orc or goblin. I tried to draw a wall. Unsuccessful.

There will be blobs and circles in place of monsters.


My code is even worse.

Day 1 - What should I do?

I like the theme but I really don't know what to do.

Can make start menu. Game should be Fun and Innovative.

I am comfortable with 3d-shooters and 2d-scrollers. I don't want to make any kind puzzles.

It is possible to use 3 worlds if I start with "Look! We discovered two new worlds!"

I need to make decision as soon as possible and be Innovative.

What the differene between worlds can be?

Maybe I should make a list of world pairs then make a random choice.


- worlds with different gravity

- mirrored worlds

- universes created as quantum mechanic effects

- steampunk/cyberpunk

- microworld/macroworld

- underwater/dryworld

- underground/aboveground

- 2d/3d

- BigEndian/LittleEndian, tabs/spaces, vim/emacs, functional/imperative. War of robots than can't understand each other because of endianness. Ended by 8-bit microcontroller.

- ORCS vs GOBLINS!!! And TROLLS too!!!


I do not want to make a random choise now.

It will be side-scroller about war between world of orcs and world of goblins. Worlds will be very similar as you can guess.

Entry names

Well. Now I know why "Nelly's Rooftop Garden" is on page /e/rushed


Short name for entry is fixed. And now I got a half of pyweek 25 theme. My game should be about short names if I want to have meaningful URLs.
