Based on the stuff I want to put in it, I'd say mine is about 50% done. Pretty much all the work is programming, except for a few blender renders.

Yay! The bar at Mixed Up Drinks is now officially open as the first shot of vodka has been poured!

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:


Note to self: Clean up the pixel issues on the hair and facial parts of customers and change the colour of their shirts so they don't all look like escaped inmates from some institution.

The thing about action games is, AI. And I'm a bit stuck on this point at the moment.

Sad to see that everyone's progressing better than me. :~(
I've started working on graphics for my game.

(this is the first background)
I'm almost done with writing, my game will mostly consist of dialogues and one big puzzle.
It's gonna have a LOT of text, not sure if it's a good or a bad thing (laugh)
Let's see who makes a better game, Slasher! (∩ ͡ ° ʖ̯ ͡ °)⊃-=(————- En garde!

It's the AI. They just won't become self-aware. They're have access to over 200,000 words, but all they use is "EXTERMINATE!". Also, they're terrible on rough terrain.

The bar now has a soda gun that can add cola (and other sodas soonish) to drinks:

Well... I did a bit of coding tonight that sets up a lot of the gameplay so I may be able to get the game done in time...

We shall see...

(Also: you play the bartender in the game so you get other people drunk, not yourself... ALthough that actually gives me an idea that could be fun if time allows...)

When your prime motives are misunderstood.
Game is being tested.
Story Line:
Larry 'Fingers' Brown is living in a squalid room and is down on his luck. Suddenly, whilst reading the days newspaper he sees that a Celebrity Diamond ring worth 2 million pounds is being auctioned and is being hosted at a local jewelers... He can't believe his luck and gathers his burglary tools and sets off to steal it not knowing what fate lays ahead.....

My thanks to Cassiebsg for her wonderful Backgrounds and animations...

Wow, a release already. That's one for sure, then.

I got over the AI hump. I got the algorithm I spent all the time on to work, and then I just went with a super simplistic solution that works much better.

The game is technically playable now, it's just a matter of how much stuff I have planned that I can put in it.

Congrats on finishing your game already, Slasher.
I don't know if I'll manage to finish mine on time.
Here's one of the backgrounds I drew for my game:



Right now I'm in the process of drawing sprites & adding animations to my game

EDIT: Sorry Slasher (and others), I can't finish the game on time. It was my own mistake to choose to do this during an exam period. It's exhausting to do the exams & MAGS at the same time.
