Nice :) I'm still figuring how not to get trapped in the walls as I devised my first puzzle...  (laugh)

Nah, I figured it was better just to not jump into walls, less painful. (laugh)

Thanks, we're working hard on it. It's gonna be tough to finish it for AdventureJam, but eh, MAGS is more important anyway :)

We're still sort of light on the rat thing, I'll try to make them more prominent for the MAGS version.

I'd say it's looking good enough that you could just throw in the line "You dirty rat." or something and no one would complain.

My rat is acting like one! It won't stay still and is very nervous, runs like crazy through the maze and in the opposite direction I clicked on! So... it's very much alive! But I better make him more controllable so you all won't kill me (laugh) (I might have to make it keyboard only though).

More awesome art from Victor:


My post have dried up a bit in terms of text, but I guess that was bound to happen.
Oh, selmiak's helping me out with sound effects, I can probably write about that tomorrow.

Looking good Hobo (nod)

So far I have developed my game story-line and some game mechanics...

Eight of my usual brilliant backgrounds done (laugh) (laugh)

This is a game of connection links:
  • Del, Rodney and Trigger
  • Only Fools and Horses
  • David Jason
  • Dangermouse
  • Rats
Del is fed up with Ratsville with its poverty, low employment and lack of cheese!

King Rat has hoarded all the cheese in his castle at Cheeseywood and Del intends to take it...

Will he and his friends succeed?

Just getting to Cheeseywood is a task!

If you do get inside King Rats castle how much cheese can you find and take using your Cheeseometer for reference? 
Find out at the end (laugh)

Players can be switched at anytime between Del, Rodney and Trigger.

Use food to solve problems, bribe and barter...

  cRodney.Say("Good morning, Del. You ready to come out?");
  cTrigger.Say("Yeah. You said you were coming to the dump with us.");
  cRodney.Say("We might pick up a few morsels.");
  cDel.Say("Sorry boys, I won't be around for a while.");
  cTrigger.Say("Err?");
  cRodney.Say("Why's that?");
  cDel.Say("Ratsville has had it!");
  cDel.Say("No jobs. No prospects. Perpetual poverty.");
  cDel.Say("Living crumb to mouth.");
  cDel.Say("Constant cheese shortage.");
  cDel.Say("Well, I'v had it with Ratsville!");
  cTrigger.Say("What do you intend to do, Del?");
  cRodney.Say("Yeah, what do you intend to do?");
  cDel.Say("I intend to sneak into Cheesywood and grab us some cheese. The say Cheesywood is paved with Cheddar cheese...");
  cDel.Say("... and the hills are dripping in Gorgonzola sauce.");
  cTrigger.Say("No rat from Ratsville has ever reached Cheeseywood because of King Rat's soldiers!");
  cRodney.Say("Yeah, his soldiers guard the border of Cheesywood to stop the poor from entering and stealing his stockpile of cheese!");
  cDel.Say("Well, I intend to try!");
  cDel.Say("Are you guys with me?");
  cRodney.Say("Well, with all that cheese there it's got to be worth a try.");
  cTrigger.Say("We would have to pass many dangers, as well as King Rat's soldiers...");
  cTrigger.Say("...but for a mouthfull of succulant Chedder cheese...");
  cTrigger.Say("...I'm in.");
  cRodney.Say("Me to!");
  cDel.Say("You had better pack your lunchboxes with grub sneaked out of the commissioner's pantry.");
  cDel.Say("Come go guys, we have a few days journey ahead of us."); (laugh)

I no longer even know what game I'm making for MAGs this month...
I'm currently making a very short private detective game for the gamejam with the player character being a rat who is being hired by a Chihuahua nicknamed Twitch who thinks his girlfriend is cheating on him.
It's possible that I might just make this an intro mission for a longer MAGs game. Or I might go back to the cheese heist game for MAGs. Or I might combine the two and have Massimo either investigate the heist or be part of the heist...

My game idea was really short, and I could have easily finished it, but I wasn’t really feeling the theme. I’m deciding to work on other projects right now instead of this month’s mags. If I’m really inspired by the theme next month then I will for sure participate.

Tomorrow is my last AdventureJam day, so we'll see if it's gonna be functional enough or will it be a MAGS exclusive release. :)
