SpaceJunk is feature complete!

June 4, 2011 Leave a comment

SpaceJunk has finally reached the feature complete stage! I am going to leave it up for general testing and feedback for about a week before I put it up for sponsorship. I’m very happy that it’s done and excited to see how it will do! I’m going to write up a post mortem here in the next few days.

Almost there!

I have finally wrapped up development of SpaceJunk! I’m sure that some further testing will reveal some bugs, but that’s a given. The only thing left is a sound track. I took a crack at making music today but failed miserably. =[ I’m currently exploring some options as I cannot put SpaceJunk on FGL without a soundtrack! It’s not like I’d break a rule but I want it to be the best it can be.

Speaking of which, I’m quite happy with how the project turned out. Originally I envisioned a totally different game, but as I progressed it evolved into something else. It’s quite hard too which I find the most pleasing. Most importantly though, SpaceJunk has allowed me to grow more comfortable within the AS3 language.

I’m already planning the next project…. >=]

Spacejunk

So I believe I’ve finally settled on a name! (maybe…)

Spacejunk is similar to a classic vertical shump, except the player is our beloved planet Earth! The goal of the game is to survive randomly generated waves for as long as you can. There will be spacemines to avoid, asteroids to blow up, astronauts to save, and other planets to defeat. After each wave, you can upgrade the Earth by spending spacedust you have accumulated.

I was originally planning to be done by sometime this week and have it up at FGL, but the project has evolved a bit. Once I got to the original ‘complete’ point, I realized there wasn’t enough content. So I’ve been adding ideas that I think of through the day and also from my friends who have been kindly testing the game for the past few weeks.

Anyway, just wanted to have more of an explanation of my current project. I will post some screenshots and maybe even a game play video when time draws nearer to release date!
