Diary Entries

first entry

Ok. This is my first time. I have very little experience in writing games. Did a Pac Man-clone in flash and a Pong-clone with pygame. Allways liked to try a top-down-shooter so this is it.


the idea

came up with an idea. Nemesis aka Adrasteia aka "Adra Steya" will be my protagonist.
she is a starship pilot revenging her people against the human race, the conquerors of the universe.

some trouble with enemy movement

i wasted some time on bezier curves
wanted to move the enemy ships along bezier paths
had some trouble implementing it
decided to go to speed, angle - movement, where i transform the angle and / or the speed over time.


timing trouble and some solution

to implement the movement with speed, angle and angle changing over time, had big disadvantages in terms of controllability and timing. I found a site with for me understandable tips about splines

Ok. I didn't make it.
I learned a lot thow, wasted way too much time on music and pixels. Should instead have spent more time on planing the whole thing. Got myself into some awful Spaghetti code.
I definitely like to finish the game and I had a lot of fun.

speaking of motivation...

I'm very thankful, that all the judges put so much effort into this, and gave me all this feedback.
That's really a good feeling and quite a motivation to carry on with this game.
Again: thank you very much and 'til next challenge! :)
