  • I don't just wanna regurgitate the numbers I see, I wanna actually understand the calculations I'm making so I'm probably gonna make a post later with some calculations and what I THINK they mean to get some advice and corrections.

    Edit: All (Most) of these will be tested in game prior. I just wanna make sure I understand what's going on under the hood if you will.
    I've decided to try and be more social and less nervous about engaging. I'm always over thinking things - from now on when I'm worried or don't get something I'll just ask.
    I know what I want in a loose sense. Maybe I should just make a post asking for opinions and suggestions.

    Maybe you should start asking "should I start asking for opinions?"

    I honestly don't know. I don't wanna be a bother honestly, but everyone here has always been really nice so I don't know why I worry so much. I tend to over think things.
    I'm very manic-y right now. I didn't sleep and I wanted to get a bunch of stuff done, but didn't get anything done except the bare bones concept for a POSSIBLE game.
    And I can't sleep now because I'm probably gonna be hanging out with my brother and I gotta discuss a bunch of BroCoG (our game group) junk with him plus it's far to late to sleep NOW.

    Oh my gawd, perhaps some type of cloning project? Well I'm the original and yes you are listed as older than me, but that's only because time travel was involved.

    Haha you wish... I can draw, clearly a skill i picked up before you that got lost in the cloning process :p

    Sleep is more important than literally anything! I have sleep apnea and was undiagnosed for years, I almost dropped out of a community college because of it. Thankfully it got fixed, but 2020 also did an insomnia number on me and my sleep still hasen't fully recovered from that.
    I had one goal when I set out to make my Game Jam game. It didn't have to be super good and the game didn't have to have the best writing - it just had to NOT CRASH.

    So yeah, someone was streaming it and it crashed.
    I can't seem to upload my game to the Jam. It just says "There are no projects on your account that you can submit to this jam. Please create a new project or publish an existing one from the links below." (Quick note: I did Publish the game like it said to)

    Wait, I may already be submitted. Poor Mikey is so new to all this.

    You should probably ask on the forum - in the thread for the Jam if that sort of question is allowed there.

    @Shaz Yeah, I ended up doing that when I realized the forums exist.
    I may have to just submit my game unfinished. I mean the story is done if not a bit unrefined but my test player hasn't finished their testplay and notes. I'll have to fix what they've already told me.

    But.... You did finish and in time xD

    Yes, but I wasn't able to get full feedback. My true nightmare right now is that there's some sort of glitch that I didn't see in my playthrough that causes a catastrophic failure in the game!

    @Aslanemperor i did have full feedback but that is always a concern.
    I'm still not satisfied with the battles in my game. They always feel either to easy or hard - and I'm almost certain bosses have to many hit points, but there comes a time when you MUST say "I need another person's opinion" so my game is being sent into the testing phase. I'll cross my fingers.

    I think too easy is still better than too hard.
    If battle is not the main focus of the game,
    it's even better to choose easier battle. :D
    Finnuval
    Finnuval
    I agree with @EpicFILE .
    Also good Luck and hope they dont find a million bugs xD

    Balancing is tough especially when the game should be difficult enough to challenge but easy enough for the dev to beat it without abusing the mechanics since the dev knows everything.
    It's unlikely this game can be finished in an hour, not that it's super long - it's just not an hour long. Still it's the game I have been making for the Jam and that's how it's gonna go.

    Doesn't matter. If that's the game you made its the game you made. If you feel good about it it is. XD

    Your game can be longer, it just will be judged on that first hour.
    The games story/dialogue is a little rough around the edges, but I am almost done. Just gotta finish the enemies and tweak battle junk and that should be it. I'll have my brother test play it and then fix up the rough edges if I have time (or post jam if time does not permit). [dances]
    On the title screen I accidentally have it say "Presented by BroCoG" instead of "Created by BroCoG" - I know it's a small thing, but it's gonna be annoying to fix. There is a distinction between presenting something and having created it. Still maybe I should just leave it as is.

    Heh-heh. I snuck in a little secret "bad" ending you can get in my game jam game since it only took a second to make. I won't say more since the game will be available to the public post-jam for free, but I consider it a cute if not sad ending.
    Sleep will not stop me. I am making great progress in the game, but I'm reaching the part where I'll need to prepare enemies and balance the game soon. Wish me luck.
    Remember: Yer outer buildings don't have to reflect exact sizes of the inner ones as long as there is an acceptable amount of consistency.

    I'm not going to lie, as a joke I fully intend to spawn in a small hut now and have it open up to a whole dungeon. Should be a fun prank for the credits map. XD

    @ImaginaryVillain : Star Trail did that, the final dungeon of the game was accessed by a house in the town. Though they did have you go down really fast, but then you entered this 3 level dungeon. Wonder how they fit it under the town with no one noticing?

    It's not about building it under a town and them not noticing. It's about the 4-D Chess route of building the dungeon, then building the town over it so no one is the wiser. ;)
