OK. No more posts (I thought people would be interested in the dev process?)

I'll now nail my game to the mast:

Based on the Towering Inferno Disaster Film...

And yes, it will use the engine (as seen) and be a turn based strategy game...

Absolutely interested ;D - Create a post in the Worklog section and I'll move all the dev posts to it. Would be nice to see the progress all in one place :)
Until the next time...

@ Adam
Interested in dev progress too - especially if they contain more "evolutionary" stuff than in Yue's "todays dev shot of the car" screenshots.

Having a "worklog" allows to elaborate here and then on certain thoughts - and it allows for interaction with users - so we could give feedback without affecting people watching this thread here for "other reasons" (eg. the competition ;-)).

BTW: So I was right with the movie, hah.

I have some filthy smileys I made for a chat 15 years ago ... just in case someone's name is Dick, I am sure I have some fitting ones :p


filthy stuff :p

While this would be needed for the pizza-nom-nom thread:

Boring threads benefit from

I allowed index/listing so feel free to checkout some other smileys. Ok, recognized someone needs to adjust the antialiasing for dark backgrounds (my chat was white - as it was common in the eary 2k years).


'nough derailing of the thread.

My main dev rig is crippled thru no graphics card, meant to make moves to address that today however had two tyres blow out on the car which ate into my resolve my dev rig issue. I doubt there's ever been a film about pot holes, there was that dodgy film about Big worm things in a desert with Kevin bacon....

7.1 on imdb, so not so dodgy, and I recall it from... 28 years ago, jeez.
happy coding ;)

So you're going to be making a game about giant worms coming out of pot holes to eat giant cars?

I would play this !

If he made a game for "part 1" of the movie franchise then the game would be about hopping from rock to rock - as the worms were not able to dig through them.

Difficult parts in the game would be areas without rocks - so you might "bait" the worms to another area (other side of a "deep-buried-rock-lane") and then rapidly hop-hop-jump-jump to the end of the rocks, pass the sandy ground to the next rock area.

If he brings in the creatures from the other parts of the franchise, then the "fire farters" (dunno how they are called, just watched the German dubbed version) might come as flying attackers ;-)

You can't beat a bit of paper prototyping:-

The spirit and imagination are firing on 4 outa 6 cylinders, a bit like a 2.3 ghia cortina I bought a while ago...

So, the spirit and imagination are kinda working, alas, the flesh (might...) be weak.
happy coding ;)

Still wrote no single byte for the compo. Just enough other stuff waiting to get done first. *grr*
