October is here, what are you doing?

This year, at least for me is going incredibly fast, what are you doing this month or what are you doing for the rest of the year?

I've recently decided to go a different route for my game away from the open world and back to the roots of a text based game. Can't wait to show everyone nearer the end of the year!

I work on my indie game 'BlueFish' from Scratch !

BlueFish

 

Very nice, what's it about?

 

Thanks !
It was basically a fishing game with dungeon exploration for rare fish, but this month I'm working on its concept/gameplay to make it more dynamic and fun. :)
I would post the progress on twitter, if you want this is the last trailer but a lot will change : true2d.com/assets/movies/blue-fish...

It's an interesting concept for sure! I dig the trailer and the tentacles coming up. ๐Ÿ˜„

What inspired the idea?

I grew up with the Game Boy, and one day a friend lent me "Zelda the oracle of the seasons" (I don't think I ever gave him back ^^ ") then I went on to the others 2D Zelda, my desire to take the player to explore mysterious dungeons probably originates from there.

As for fishing, I have always loved this game mechanic. I think I have spent hundreds of hours virtually fishing on Zelda, Dofus, Animal Crossing, Wakfu and others.

For the tentacles, I keep this story to myself. ๐Ÿ˜„

The last fishing game I played was at my friends indie arcade where he hosted a horror game night. The cabinet he made for it had two buttons and a joystick to move. The things you caught in that lake was definitely all over the place. ๐Ÿ˜† @i_am_mooncat do you remember the name of the game?

I spent most of the night playing it and only got through one ending.

An arcade horror game night look like awesome !
Do you have the name of this fishing game ? I'm curious about. ๐Ÿ˜

 

I'm working on a tower defense game! I really liked the warcraft 3 tower defense custom games, trying to recreate that!

That is looking great! What are you building it in? Any idea when a demo will be out?

 

Godot, I built a couple games in it and really enjoy the IDE. The native scripting language is easy to use and intuitive. I'm probably a few weeks away from a playable demo! Hopefully this community keeps me accountable and motivated to finish it :)

never used godot, i've heard alot about it. I personally like the art stylr you've chosen. Tower defense can be really fun so long as they have a variety of towers and enemies

 

Planning on finishing my "main" game and try to join some game jams to get extra skills. Looking forward to seeing your game!

 

Enjoy the Jams and good luck with your game, what's it about?

 

Thanks! It's a procedural roguelike, pretty simple but good for practice :)

 

I'm planning on finishing cannon toss first to finally say I have something under my belt rather than a handful of half-done projects. ๐Ÿ˜ Ideally this is done this month.

After that finishing up Breakfast Tale. Taking a minute is really helping some of the juices flow to help bring things together. And ideally this is done by end of the year. ๐Ÿ˜›

 

The first time you start and finish something is a truly great feeling. I hope you get to enjoy it when it's done ๐Ÿ‘
