Once upon a time, a small idea for a game popped into my head. One or two evenings later I have realized that it does not pan out as I was expecting (and imagining) in my head, but something was already produced.
Idea is rather simple: You start as a colored fighter (box yeah!). You fight against other colored fighters. But the fighting is technically “stealing”. You steal the color from another fighter. How much and what kind of color you steal depends from both fighters in clash.
Unfortunately, gameplay was not as dynamic as I was expecting 🙁 And the current state is a crude prototype, no gui, no menu, no nothing…
Controls: WASD for movement, mouse for aiming, space for shooting.
So, today starts Fuck This Jam. The game jam about creating a game in a genre you hate. Thus. I’ve decided to participate in this jam.
I never thought that it might be so hard to think of a game you hate. Every single game I’ve played is appealing in one or another way. But. I’ve decided to look for a boring game for me. And this is the space colonization/strategy game. The ones like Master of Orion or Alpha Centauri.
Master of Orion
I’m going to use Java with GTGE and will see what is going to be. For now I do not have any details about the gameplay or anything else… Well, because I hate it… 😀
