I finally tried out the #TIC80 fantasy console today because I saw that the #aGameByItsCover 2021 #gameJam (https://itch.io/jam/a-game-by-its-cover-2021) had started and I liked one of the covers enough to join:
I've been debating whether I should /not/ shuffle the deck but instead try to make the mazes hand-crafted puzzles, but that's probably a bit too much work for a game jam (and for me generally). Maybe a future version could have a puzzle mode?
Well..... I get up for work in about 6 hours, but I got to spend 3 hours tonight working on sound effects and music for my #AGBIC game! I'm going for a spooky sort of vibe and I'm getting pretty good results so far!
Whoa, I either wildly misread the #AGBIC end date, or it changed at some point because it's due NOW! Yikes. I'll at least put up a "demo" of the incomplete game to submit.
Alright, here's where you can play my #AGBIC 2021 #gameJam submission in all its incomplete glory:
I intend to finish it ASAP and update the page when it's ready! #gameDev
@Alamantus that's what I would suggest. Get the mechanics down now and release the Level Development Kit tbd
@68km That's not a bad idea. It's just the TIC-80, and I'm using Lua, so technically anyone could just go into the editor and modify the code! If I tidy it up enough, people could develop their own levels :)
@Alamantus would a puzzle mode include level-specific decks (like "this level has more lefts and less full-downs")?
@68km It wouldn't be too hard to mod the deck creation to do something like that... Right now it just generates a larger number of single moves and a decreasing number of multiple moves, where 4 moves only has like 2 cards in the whole deck.
It would be easy to just hand-write the deck's contents instead of generating them!

To make the game more challenging, a monster will appear every every 10 discards. The monsters will probably move around randomly to mess up your plans. After a certain number of monsters appearing/time passed?), the minotaur appears and moves straight for you from the entrance.
