I, Xenocythe, make my resolution to complete a game in the first 30 days of '09.

It's a game. It will be called AssassinStrike. That is all the information I will give. You will wait... until the WIP thread comes.

I am not going to make a game, it is going to be a game creation utility. I will make my decision in the next day or two as to which utility I will begin and finish for this resolution.

One day you will fight the fine fight.

As 2009 just launched for me, I started working on the game right now. For now, it is still an untitled project.

Hey, is it too late to sign up? If not,
I, Default, make my resolution to complete a project in the first 30 days of '09
My game so far is a fun mix of marble madness meets pikmin...

Also, is the whole sig bar thing a requirement of just an idea?

I randomness 128 make my resolution to complete a game in the first 30 days of '09

A few days ago, I started on a simple fps, so this is perfect . Here's a preview of what I have so far:



It's about 3:30 in the morning here, so I'll get a user bar and post a WIP tomorrow (or later today depending on how you look at it... possibly 2056 if there's some kind of time warp).

I'm pretty sure i've got all the physics out of the way in regards to my Combat Flight Simulator, and the terrain is good enough for the moment, so now the main thing for me is to crack in some AI, and get working on a realistic-looking cockpit!

No excuse for bad typing when drunk! I usually manage writing fine when drunk, saying that, most of the stuff I probably write is drivel.

That's like saying your driving isn't worse after you drink, seeing you never learned to drive anyway. I could see a drunk guy trying that on a cop that just pulled him over.

Ok, I'm ready to put my game summary in that code box thing It'll basically be a short platformer, where you have to avoid stepping into the light at all costs, sheltering in the shadows, and moving things around to create shadowy paths in some cases. For the moment it'll just go with the WIP title Photophobia (although I don't like that). After NaGaCreMo I'll probably go on to make a sequel with a more reasonable lifespan.

Man, that FPS reminds me so much of Influx...

After some thought on my part, and the thought of some buddies,
I and some buddies agree to make a game in the first 30 days of 2009

Any one whos ever played Hunter Hunted should be interested in our project. see you in 30 days. I go to open DBPRO, to start this.


This is my WIP, not even ready for a WIP thread yet though.http://smallgroupproductions.com/

Oh yes, I am sorry, it would seem that I am mistaken. Humans are so unforgiving and filthy.


Quote: "So who's going to use the "Big Red Cool Game Making Button"? Seppuku, from what I heard you had it. Although I'm not sure..."


Somebody cut the wires - I kept pressing the button, it would do nothing. I have sent my minions to solve the problem. It's almost like the time when I spilled milk because a table leg was missing...hmmm...this time I'll avoid the alcoholic squirrel.




I may have one annoying complication for this comp, I may be needing to use the warrantee on my laptop - my keyboard seems to be faulty, my speakers sometimes fuzz and the headphone port has stopped working. Annoying, as there's no accidental damage, it won't be void. The only thing my warrantee will let me do is send it back, so nobody with technical fingers is allowed to open it up and tell me what the problem is.

Over the next few days, I'll be backing up my comp, hopefully they'll send it back before I have to go back to uni. (And before the end of January of course. I go back on the 25th)

Quote: "I visited the big button and read the collected experiences of people who have pushed the button and decided to try an experiment. I DID NOT push the button. Guess what? NOTHING HAPPENED. I think this has serious philosphical implications... or maybe the button is stuck ON. Maybe someone should go check. "

How would I offer a prize to the winner if they made a game based on dead baby jokes? I'll buy some TGC item and have it up as a prize, it'll also give direction to these games along with creativity.
Gotta come up with criteria. Gore, strategy, detail, how funny it is vs just plain sick.
Perhaps start it as a separate thing, one month is kinda short for a contest when school's starting again

Quote: "Esther Dyson - The really big button that doesn’t do anything poses interesting challenges both for owners/creators/sellers and for users of the button. Because the button allows for essentially endless pressing, it dramatically changes the traditional economics of "buttons." In this new world, competing with the old one, the button is easy to press, but hard to understand. The button allows creativity to proliferate, but button quality will be scarce and hard to recognize. Button creators will have to fight to attract attention, and to get paid. Logistics alone used to add value to buttons; it does so no longer.
"


Quote: "John Hewitt - Microsoft has announced plans to take over Really Big Button That Doesn't Do Anything. They claim this is a basic element of operating system. "Our button's have been doing nothing for years, we just didn't know it was marketable. From now on it will be called Microsoft Really Big Button That doesn't Do Anything.(tm)"

or

Since there are so many people around the world and not only one nation.

I don't think so, because he asked for the bar and the link to the wip so he could post it...

And I did ask about that, because it's not like I started Dream for this. I'm mainly here to support it. Next year though, I might start something new for it.

Sorry everyone was away from my computer for a couple of days, upating all info now.

And yes I was actually drunk!! I should have everything edited in within the half hour (by 12:30 am EST 1/5/09) and I'll catch up on some posts that I missed.

Let me know if anything is incorrect or missing.

I, Yodaman Jer, make my resolution to complete a game in the first 30 days of '09.

My game is called Coins Galore and the WIP thread is here:

http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=142844&b=8

So far I only have level one complete...out of five. But it's early in the month!

Actually, I find it hard to believe we're already out of December.

I've gotten pretty busy, but I think I'll be able to complete my game if I put enough effort into it. I'm having a lot of fun making it!

Small update from me, everything is going smoothly on my end. We have two models (player jet, and an enemy airmine) complete and I'm spending some serious time in C# getting my XNA game basics working. Heres a small shot of the remade menu background being drawn (our remake is called Skyburn for now, unless we come up with something better):



Heres the menu screen from the original game:



I will make a WIP thread (in Programming Talk I guess, since it's XNA) once I have some real progress to show (i.e. models ingame and flying around)

eh? I haven't got a clue what you're talking about?

oh and I've made progress on the game engine and stuff like that, I never got along with that modelling with the end; the character is just a sort of primitive/particle monster now, with smoke seeping out of him and everything.
