Topic: Game Programming / One game a month

I won’t be starting a new thread for the 2014 version or visiting the forum this year, as a lot has changed since I started this 12 months ago.

Someone should definitely start a new thread for the year though. Good luck and goodbye!

Topic: Game Programming / One game a month

That currently makes 129 games made throughout 2013 by those of you that participated, which is brilliant! We’re way above the average for games per user.

Congrats to anyone who made a game this year and good luck for 2014!

(Let me know if you add any beyond this point and I’ll update the list)

Topic: Game Programming / GiTD #36 Concluded, congratulations Moocowsgomoo!

My entry didn’t make the cut! :(

My 2 points go to Moocowsgomoo and 1 point to SumGato. I think I missed something with the other 2 games.

Welcome aboard guys. Can I have your onegameamonth.com account names to add to the list? Thanks

I can’t enter ‘properly’ this time but here’s my 0h game jam game:

Weave

It’s a backwards Super Hexagon, sort of…

Were you thinking gamejolt when you typed the extra mindjolt?

Topic: Game Programming / One game a month

Nice game! I’ll add you on but you don’t seem to have any games on your onegameamonth.com account. Make sure they get put on there too (hoping to automatically get everyone’s games from the site in future)

Topic: Game Programming / GiTD #35 Congratulations Reaper_Guy!

Short version, don’t want to miss both the GiTD deadline and the voting deadline ;)
elementz123: Nice game, I never felt bored or unchallenged. More levels would be cool and maybe sub out the red text for something friendlier but no big issues
Reaper_guy: Probably my favourite – certainly kept me playing for the longest at least. The physics are a bit odd and the flipped controls when the grav changes confused me a little but they’re minor grievances. Great work.
Moocowsgomoo: I think it’s too early to tell with this one. It’ll probably be great eventually but I couldn’t really make the time manipulation work in my favour.
SumGato: Similar opinion to Frictionless Fury, minus the red text part. A bit of polish and more levels it’ll do well I think.
Darkscanner & DannyDaNinja: I think I got to the end (top of the blue beam?) but I’m not sure. I can’t really make a fair call as I think I’m missing something. Looked nice though!
BadEgg: I really missed something with the one – I couldn’t get anywhere :(
kantieno: Cool idea, reminded me of old school Ninja Turtles but the infinite wall jump and waiting around for recharges means it was just pipped by some of the others.
Shalmezad: Cool, managed to finish it after a few tries. Having the key presses persist between levels would be nice. Other than that, more levels and graphics (said that a few times now) and you’re golden!
Aaants: Terrible, 5/5
Jugglerrob: I definitely liked the look of it but the gameplay didn’t keep me as long as Survival lab (it actually seemed to lag on my computer, which has pretty much never happened with a web game). Top graphics points for this GiTD though – and it got some nice star ratings from me on the LD site ;)

2 points: Reaper_guy.
1 point (3 way tie?!): Jugglerrob, as I have to pick one.

Topic: Game Programming / GiTD #35 Ten Seconds

…d’oh…

Spent the last few hours editing a GiTD version of mine. No biggy if it doesn’t count, as it’s not massively different from the LD version (just level layouts really).

Topic: Game Programming / GiTD #35 Ten Seconds

It could be an issue with the site’s current traffic (or just my computer) but your links aren’t taking me to specific games, just the all entrants page.

Here’s my 48 hour game. Not 100% sure I’ll be able to put much into making it any better by the end of the week though.

Well done if you completed something

Looking good – but I really struggle to do the maze in time :(

Made a progress video of mine just now. I will be entering for once! :D

Being picky here – but the theme is 10 seconds. Can be interpreted differently is you use a certain numerical system!

I’ll leave it until next month due to the LD thing.

Don’t forget to vote on themes on the compo page btw.

Moo passed on the prize I put up last time, so the £10€ or $15 Steam offering rolls over.

Edit: it’s possibly not in the spirit of LD to have a prize – so might leave it until next month’s

Count me in if you go with the LD idea. We get a nosy at each other’s code too.

Also, 3 stones!

Topic: Game Programming / One game a month

Hey everyone, it’d be great if we could get at least 1 game on every profile by the end of the year. There seem to be people in the inactive list that have posted screenshots of work or entered a GiTD – stick those games on your 1GAM profile!

As a heads up:
- 7DFPS starts this week. Make a first person shooter in a week!
- Ludum Dare starts on the 23rd. Crank out your first game of the year in 2 days.
- Next GiTD soon?!

Failing all that, keep an eye on CompoHub to see if something grabs your attention. There’s no obligation to make all 12 games – but we can all make at least 1 :)

Topic: Game Programming / GiTD #34 Completed, congratulations Moocowsgomoo!

I had a longer post tapped out but my stupid sausage thumbs hit the read more link and I lost it all. In the interest of keeping my thumbs and eyes for tomorrow, I’ll do a short version:

2pts for Moocowsgomoo and Encode
1pts for Shake_N_Baker and Space Shooter

Elyzius says pretty much everything I wanted to say anyway – and he does it far more eloquently.

If you win, PM me your Steam details and I’ll buy you some gaaaaaaames!!

Topic: Game Programming / GiTD #34 Has begun, the theme is "Creation/destruction"

Works fine for me after a lengthy wait. I didn’t manage to craft anything in the few minutes I spent jumping around though.

Sad that the prizes didn’t prompt more entries :( – or get mentioned in the OP for that matter! I’ll honour it but, given the apparent incomplete-ness, it’d be cool if the winner would let it roll over to next month.

My guess is they’re the same guy, as are some of the other accounts posting odd stuff over the last few days (StencylGames, HTMLDeveloper), somehow getting a laugh out of posting babble :)

I still suck at entering these but I like seeing the results, so I’ll contribute to prizes.

I’ll gift up to £10/10€/$15 of games on Steam to whoever wins

Topic: Game Programming / Rotation difference [SOLVED]

Could be wrong but my guess would be:

difference = rotation2 – rotation1;
while (difference<-180) difference += 360;
while (difference>180) difference -= 360;

Just sign up on onegameamonth.com and add the game to your profile. Mention your Twitter/1GAM account in the sticky thread on this board and I can add you to that list too :)

Roger! I need your Twitter/1GAM name Eagle_Scream.

This thread will get better, I’m just waiting for the site to support certain requests and I’ll make a little game type thingy that lets you explore entrants accounts and submissions.

Topic: Game Programming / Programming Languages...

Interesting info on language use here

I’ve got no idea how accurate it is though…
