Life has once again gotten in the way so I haven’t really done anything, I’ve changed some game variables and may change the way the game is play’d. But I may keep the gravity switch mechanics, I’m keen to add levels and a template for levels soon. Also sprites! I’ve been watching videos and getting tips ‘Baldie and Hairy’ may very well change alot soon.
Didn’t really get much done at all 😦 been a bit sick today. Tomorrow i’ll draw some enemies and learn some more pixel art to improve the polish of my game. I’m always on the lookout for sounds and music that are royalty free for my game so links’s would be appreciated 😀 If you have music and want to get it out there, if you send me a sample or send me a link to a sample then if it suits, i’ll add it to my game!
Life is getting in the way a bit lately so progress is slow so my blog posts may become less daily…than they are.
I don’t want to post and not show anything because nothing has happened like this one so if nothing has happened I won’t post, just stops boring posts of nothingness…
Today I coded a little so that the level system is working, then I started on the collision and got most of that working only thing is because i’ve set it to only jump when on the ground when you get onto of a platform you can jump or set the gravity which is quite a problem. Although as I typed that I may make it so that you have to only jump when on the floor and you move along the levels using unique timing of the jumps and gravity switches.
Not really much to show might draw later and upload here, which leads me to my next topic I have linked my deviant art account to the blog and all my sprite pixel art will be uploaded there as well for publicitiy 😀
Lastly I’ll mention that i’ll be drawing with a Wacom in Photoshop, I found a nice niche to draw in/with.
I took out my Wacom Tablet and had a go at drawing on that instead of the mouse.
This is what I got in Gimp.

compared with a mouse in Gimp.
I started with the hair just scribbling then thought it kinda looked like a anime style hairdo and continued with a head, dress arms and legs. This took me not even 5 mins. I’m trying to work out what program, hardware to use and my style to draw.
I was thinking use a mouse for 8-bity graphic games like Baldie, and Wacom for draw style games. But still have to decide on software, i’ll do this tutorial which says to use photoshop, and upload a compare image here.
It’s a LOLBOMB!
I don’t know how long this may take hopefully very soon 😉 So to help me choose can you vote?
