So, any further progress anyone?

I'm here waiting for the game of the century to show itself ;)

Unlike you, the rest of us move at normal speed. (laugh)
So you'll have to wait until closer to the end of the month to see what we've all been working on.

Scarecrow and his quest to find a brain.
Download Game

This says it all:

"Why are you looking so glum, Mr, Scarecrow?"
"I'm fed up! People don't take me seriously."
"They ignore me and think I'm just a stoopid, old scarecrow."
"I could while away the hours"
"Conferrin' with the flowers,"
"If I only had a brain."
"I don't think you're stupid, Mr. Scarecrow."
"Ah, you are just trying to be nice to me, Miss Dorothy."
"No. if I had a brain I could be a someone."
"Someone who is admired, respected."
"A poet or an artist, maybe?"

Meet familiar characters as you follow the yellow brick road.

I'm doing something with Handsfree, also about Oz, but we still don't have a good screenshot, it will be a one-room game, let's hope we finish it

I still have as much as last time I posted, so don't expect anything from me... unless inspiration hits and I speed through it.

I'd try giving some kind of inspiration or ideas or something, but my motivation and creativity kind of ran out on Wednesday. I've only poked at things a bit since then. But I did find someone reading some of the Oz books on Youtube, so I'm hoping listening to them while working on graphics will help...

I've come to the realization that The Last Magic of Oz is too ambitious for this month. So instead I'm going to do a different story. I'm not sure the name yet, but it will have the Scarecrow, Scraps, Tik-Tok, and the Saw-Horse as the main characters and Jack Pumpkinhead in some capacity.

I've been chipping away at something. I'm not sure I'll get it done in time for the end of the month since my current work schedule is a little weird.

I think like most other people my mind went immediately to a "living" Scarecrow wandering around a farm. I pulled a history channel and went "Aliens" for the reason why my guy is moving around.

I have the art for the rooms done, walking animation, as well I have a simple introductory cutscene. I need to wire up the puzzles at this point and create the inventory objects.

Why don't you do just take one section from one book and convert that into a game?

Several reasons really. One us that too many problems are fixed too quickly or by accident. I think it's better just to make my own story with my own selection of characters and locations from the books.

Indeed. But luckily I already have most of the needed sprites already done or mostly done. And I'm going to use a made up location/ideas that didn't quite fit for the Last Magic of Oz. It's based on when you mentioned Time Management.

Haven't done much with it since I've been busy at work. My "Weekends" are on Tuesdays and Wednesdays... so I'll be doing a hard sprint on it then.

My entry is playable from start to finish now, but I still have to add background music
and try and add a bit more interactivity and polish, but I think I'll finish within time.
