I spent the last 2 weeks on a “let’s see if I can do it” project with no intention of releasing something. Yesterday, however, I decided to drop that and make a game with the intention of releasing it.
The easiest thing to achieve for a one-man project was simple 2d stuff, so I tested a few ideas and I went with a dual stick shooter type of game.
I plan on doing a little bit of behind the scenes stuff like documenting progress, depending on how much people actually care.
Here is the day 1 prototype, not much happening, but still:
I am still not sure where this will go gameplay wise, but as always, I will keep iterating until the mechanics on its own are fun enough to play around with and then add gameplay that is rewarding.
So it’s still undecided if it will just be a record hunt arena type of game or if it’s going to be more like a rogue like progress style of game where you have to fight from arena to arena and upgrade to fight an end boss.
