Screenshots are not up to date, obviously. The boat is not a white rectangle anymore. Don't let that throw you off.
Also check out the game's itch.io page!

Day 2 GIF
Day 1 - Brainstorming and Simple Engine Stuff
Today I got some boring stuff out of the way, I got working code for UI text and button stuff as well as the bare minimum of game objects, including water, the boat, and pebbles. I'm going to work on ripples tomorrow.
Good luck to you all! Don't forget to wash your hands!
Day 2 - Ripple Physics and Level Loader
I also created a system to load levels through PyTMX, which has proved to be helpful to me in one of my previous PyWeek entries. I added basic sprites for walls and finish lines, to move on to the next level.
I'm going to try to make the game have a relaxing zen-ish feel because we all kind of need that right now due to the things happening in the world that I know you all are aware of. I got a guitar recently so I'm going to see if I can do something with that to create some soft nice guitar music to go along with a steadily-paced (hopefully, we'll see) relaxing game.
Days 3 and 4 - More Objects, Graphics, More Levels and Stuff
I added some more objects into the game, including finish lines (as an objective for the level), rocks, lily pads, sewer pipes (which will act as portal-like mechanisms) and coins. I'm planning on having the purpose of the coin to be spending on customizations, like boat colors.
In addition to the actual code for the objects, I started working on the graphics for all of them. I decided to experiment with low-poly graphics, as I thought it would add a more relaxing feel to the game, which is exactly what I'm aiming for. I didn't fully complete the graphics, but I got quite a few of them. I also got a font as well, trying to fit it in with a modern theme around the low-poly graphics.
I also started to create more levels, trying to experiment with different obstacles and patterns to make the game more interesting and fun.
