Hey everyone,

So the year is coming to an end, and some of us haven't finished a game yet, or would love to finish one more! Sometimes just a bit of competition is all you need to find the drive to finish a game, and that's what this is.

Theme: Top Down Shooter (If you have another idea, go for it)
Language/Tech: Whatever you need to finish your game!
Time Frame: Be done prior to The New Year
Goal: Make a game!

The rules are extremely loose. Do what you want BUT finish a game!

We already have a couple people interested. Feel free to ask for help, the end goal is just to have something fun and playable to showcase.

Cheers

I'm participating.

There'll probably be a lot of discussion on the JGO IRC channel. (http://www.java-gaming.org/topics/jgo-irc/33417/view.html)

I've spent many months scrapping project after project, and this might just give me incentive to complete one Smiley I'm in Smiley

Either wandering the forum or programming. Most likely the latter Smiley

How cool I just started on a top-down shooter! Don't know if it will be finished this year though since I can't develop this week. But I'll attempt it!  Grin

I first started on making art. It took me one hour to draw this.



It is complete for the four directions, I still need another four for diagonal movement.

You might want to redraw that, it currently looks like the player has a large silver penis.

@SHC: If it's top down, why don't you make just one image (or animation) which you then rotate?

Looking at what people are doing... I'm feeling screwed...

Top down shooter doesn't have to people right? Cause I'm not doing people...

All night I layed awake thinking up a storm and early this morning I think I may have it. You will be hearing from me shortly. Muhuhahaha (Imagine that in a deep voice, not like, you know, a 14 year old's voice)  persecutioncomplex

I think I'll try and finish something. I started a top down shooter a little bit ago, so I already had some stuff such as movement, collision, and shooting done. This morning I came up with an idea for the gameplay and story, and made the art to create the first room. The only thing I didn't make was the player sprite. I should probably do more work on the gameplay and story and less on graphics right now  Roll Eyes



I'm making it with LibGDX and the lighting is with Box2DLights.

A little side project wouldn't hurt.  Grin Don't you need some breaks from RPC?

When you get a large enough project going, a side project/break can end up being another part of the same game. Win-win, gives you a break from whatever you're doing and you're still contributing to the main game/goal. Cheesy
