SCRAPPED - One Button Barman - 'There Can Be Only ONE' Compo

(1/2) > >>

Xerra:
Time to start a worklog.

Xerra:
Potentially a rough idea of how the title screen might look. I want an old school tavern kind of look so thinking wood panels with carved logos and stuff like that. Placeholder more than anything at the moment and I've reduced the image size to stop qubes forum telling me off.

The second shot is a layout I'll be using for testing the game mechanisms before I start thinking about how to lay out the different taverns for each day of the week. As you can see, I've worked really hard on the graphics here so I can get this stuff working. My sprites are so good that I think I might keep them instead of hassling someone else to do some graphics for me :-)

I know you guys are really impressed, right? Of course you are.

Neat-o.
We have until October so there's plenty time.

Yep, that's appropriate for the game.  Why don't you use the wood panelling on the menu screen for the benches in-game?  And use another colour than grey.

Still thinking about all of it actually, because tapper had a bit of variety with the different bar themes, such as punk bar,  sports bar, western bar, space bar etc. Also had different customers in each one as well so that's a lot of graphics needed. What I have there is nothing but a pee-take because it's just putting some quick scribbled images down so I've got a way to prototype the gameplay elements. Not made any kind of real thinking on all the graphics I'll need and where to go for them because I want to make sure that I get the gameplay working right first, else I'd be wasting a lot of time.

I've watched so many videos, and played quite a few other versions of the original game now, and I'm still not done with the whole design yet. I think it'll be easy to do it as a one-button game but until I get it properly up and running I'm not completely sure.
