RPG Project - 01 - Introduction

Today's Saturday, so here's a new post on programming/game stuff. This will basically outline a project I'm working on, my current progress on it, and what I consider to be the next steps.

This summer I discovered Love2d, a nifty little 2d game engine. It had a couple of advantages that I liked, like being cross-platform and easy to test(Just drag your project folder onto the program, and it'll run your game). It also uses Lua, a language that I hadn't really touched before then. Overall, I've found it quite enjoyable. Here's what I've done with it:



I've recently been posting to this blog almost every day, and I think now would be a good time to make a proper schedule for posting. Right now, my objective is to post daily when possible, although I might not have time to do that this weekend. I'm moving into my dorm at Champlain today, and I have to attend the various orientation activities on Saturday and Sunday. That said, you can find my plan for posting after the jump:


Sketchpad #1: Trees

This is mostly trees, with a plank and a cactus thrown in for variety. I meant to post this yesterday but was too tired to do so.


Let's Play a Drawing Game!

    Last weekend, I thought of a little game for two to try out some time. The game is based around drawing pictures, preferably with a tablet so that you can easily compile the images together on the computer. I've been tentatively calling the game 'Pics or it didn't happen.' Here are the rules:

  1. Player 1 tells Player 2 about something that happened to them, or something they found out. This thing must be only one sentence long, and it should be wild, fictitious, and rather absurd.
  2. Player 2 must now draw the picture, and then follow step 1. However, the sentence Player 2 chooses must be related to the last.
  3. Everyone wins. (Or no one, depending on the contents of the pictures. You decide.)
    This game can be adapted for 3 or more people, where each person must draw. The drawing that Player  1 decides is best gives its artist a point, as well as the opportunity to come up with the next sentence. The winner is the first to reach a set amount of points.

I encourage anyone who reads this to try it out, and tell me the results. I'm going to try it with some friends, so I might put up the result eventually.


An Unusual Breakfast

     So, I woke up this morning to find that the house was bereft of both cereal and bread. Fortunately, I was taken by one of my many odd whims and thought of something to whip up:

    I can't remember the last time I ate grits. It's pretty good, but I never seem to think of it. Either way, it certainly saved me from a sour morning.
