I'm going to host it on my [url=http://i3software.org/]website[/url]. It is better for me to control and update the site, for obvious reasons.

  • Could you move me to the third or the fourth of march? I don't have any free days next week so It'd be pretty boring if this was scheduled during a school day for me.

  • [QUOTE=i300;34791916]Whoever wants to go first can reply to this post and state it.[/QUOTE] Friday would be okay too, so Ill voulenteer for first.
  • So why do we need to submit our email addresses again? I think it'd be much simpler if we just posted in this thread when we're done with the changes.
  • [QUOTE=Darkwater124;34800658]Adventure game[/QUOTE] Literally nothing except 'adventure game'. This should be interesting.

To submit your build you can post it in this thread or email it to me at [url=mailto:jerish@i3software.org]jerish@i3software.org[/url]. Once you do send it to me, I need a way to confirm that it is your email. But you can also post it in this thread. I'll check it at 23:50:00 GMT every day and update the website at 0:00:00 GMT. Email it just easier for me to keep track of.

  • [QUOTE=Darkwater124;34802983]At the end of the cycle, do we start at the first one again?[/QUOTE] We'll have signups again. People can sign up regardless if they were in the previous cycle. We continue until we think we have a finished game. I added you as the first person and moved supersnail to the 4th.

I added you as the first person and moved supersnail to the 4th.[/QUOTE] Well then, let the game begin... I've got some things to do on Friday but I'll start around 11.30-12.00 GMT +1 and submit at the end of the day. I'll just start with basic things like main loop and helper libs. Am I allowed to copy/paste tiny snippets from other games such as functions to explode a string? (Btw, I think tile-based would be the best for this?)

  • [QUOTE=icantread49;34804599]there is no voting, you pick up from whatever is handed to you by the person before[/QUOTE] Ok, fine. I [i]recommend[/i] tile based but non isometric.

If you have code that you wrote or you acquired with an open-source license you can use it.
  • Top-down tile-based adventure shooter a la Zelda it is then. (You play the guard) [editline]21st February 2012[/editline] It starts with walking around for 4 hours when eventually someone shows up and fights you. If you win, he will respawn. If you lose, game over. [editline]21st February 2012[/editline] Why do I have the same feeling as being the last man standing in CoD Search & Destroy or something?

  • Is it possible for us all to say what we will be doing on the order list? Seems to make sense.

  • I thought the point was that there was no theme or gametype, you just pass on your source code and people do whatever the fuck they want until you have a functional game.

  • [QUOTE=leontodd;34805875]I thought the point was that there was no theme or gametype, you just pass on your source code and people do whatever the fuck they want until you have a functional game.[/QUOTE] There is no "theme". We are making an [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adventure_game"]adventure[/URL] game. It has to conform to the standards which make it an "adventure" game. Other than that, you can do whatever the hell you want with it. [editline]21st February 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=benjojo;34805865]Is it possible for us all to say what we will be doing on the order list? Seems to make sense.[/QUOTE] Nah. It should be more spontaneous. I don't want to know what I'm going to get from the person ahead of me. I think creativity flows better when you're given a product to work with that you may not know much about. If you want to, you can tell people what you're going to do, but thats your choice and won't go on the official list.
