Welcome to my s~A(R)T~urday linky party – today: Creating a game.

“Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.”

~ Pablo Picasso ~

Week #4 of AEDM (Art Every Day Month) over at Creative Every Day is coming to an end with the month of November almost behind us. Just a few more days to get creative each day this month. And we have been creative for day 2 (here are day 1 and day 0) of our game making weekend. But, I have to say we ran into a few issues today.

First off, my personal recurring issue: Migraine. Thankfully a somewhat minor case, but still it hindered my creative juices quite a bit today. David, on the other hand, started working on the code immediately after breakfast until now, 7:30 pm, when we both decided a little exercise might do us good, you know. Anyway, he had a few problems to solve, but since I have got no idea about gaming code, I better let him explain his progress. Here he goes…

Imagine if you will… braving the most terrifying of dungeons… fighting your way through untold horrors… to claim… the ultimate treasure. And then misplacing it. How embarrassing! So as you can see developing a robust inventory management system, although not precisely sexy, is rather important. And that’s what I spent most of the day doing. Our heroic witch can now gather herbs and other ingredients, take them home, and store them securely in her nice, organized larder. Claudia did a smashing job drawing the larder, the basket, and a nifty cauldron… a cauldron which aside from looking cool, is rather non-functional at this point. Tomorrow, tomorrow! Yes, tomorrow we will finish up the inventory system, develop a home brewing system, and perhaps a moodier background for her haunted forest. But we didn’t want to leave you completely clueless, so here is one screenshot of ‘the witch’s shop:

And, I couldn’t help it, but for those not into game development at all, I will leave you with another long exposure iPhone shot, this time converted to black and white. I really like the minimalism of these shots.

Have a great weekend!

I hope that over time we will be building a community dedicated to art and creating. I rather like these words said by Andy Warhol:


Don’t think about making art, just get it done.

Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. 

While they are deciding, make even more art.” 

Drop me a comment and you’ll make me smile!
