That's your game/tech demo right there

Go on, I'll bite. What's your thinking, sir?

Pac Man-esque. Christmas tree sale in forest. You chop down trees so you don't have to buy them while missus(s) chases you. Until you chop up a purse, then you go after the missus. Should be good therapy

It's meant to be a demo, not a game :)

I started digging out all the stuff I did for the old C64 fake loader I did in Damnation Alley today to see if I can re-use any of it in a C64 themed Xmas demo. It's crap code, though. Lazy, rushed and mostly hard-coded rubbish. Lucky I have a good hatchet for chopping out the bad bits :)

Although, having said that, I am grumpy at xmas. Mainly because the missus is demanding to put up a tree this weekend and it's only the middle of November !!!!!

Is this a female thing? Same here. Aaand once Christmas is over it has to come down within days...doesn't matter that it's nice snowy outside and the Christmas spirit is still lingering. I guess it's like a task to them. Do it way earlier so they're not late and once task completed, pack it up, put it away and focus on the next task...


You guys are late. My wife is already done, decorating the house and setting up the trees. My arguments for "hey it isn't past Dead Sunday already" were joyfully smashed to the side.  ;D
But I love that season anyway, so I don't mind. Who cares what the neighbors think.  :P

Tis "almost" the season to be "mostly" jolly ... "mostly"
Any-who, not to sure what to make, I probably just wing it.

Me neither. The only firm idea I have is doing something C64'ish. Planning to look at some YouTube videos for ideas this afternoon. These things tend to do a lot of graphics stuff so a limited system probably would work better for me.

Sounds neat. i'm just testing code out to see if I can push blitz3d in an odd way. The usual graphical trickery generally found in
demos.

update..I finished the music (that means the code is now working), So I might be able to get something working later... maybe for the 24th!

I have had almost no real time to do something - I had a game in mind (since last xmas compo thread of 2019) but yay... kindergarten closed a while now, wife injured a bit - so all spare time is left to at least get something for christmas for my TVTower users (and even this is unlikely to happen :-( ).


Assume a lot of us have less spare time than they wish these days.


bye
Ron

@derron: Are you ever going to finish TV towers? You've been mumbling about it for years now!

@qube: Show us what you got anyway. Might give us some inspiration to try something maybe after xmas. A general demo rather than just xmas.

For what it's worth I did start tinkering with something before I forgot about it and started playing warcraft again. Apart from a few hours on that and working on a better game framework occasionally, I've been seriously slacking last couple of months. Oh, and getting a bit more work done on a tribute vic 20 game.

I drew up a rough storyline, wrote an even rougher script and scribbled an outline storyboard in my work notebook while on a particularly boring conference call, but just didn't get any time to turn it from an outline into something else.

I'll keep the notes and maybe put something together for next year!
