Well, after waaaaay too much fooling around with code today my rat can finally run from the start of the game to the end goal...

Now I just have to make it a "bit" more difficult to get there...

Looks like they'll be quite a few AI's and obstacles.... great idea there Mandle...

Meantime I am working on a Dungeon scene should you get caught trying to sneak into King Rats castle where you are sure to get skinned if you don't get out of there!!!!

Game progress: 50%

Well, I'm now in the programming phase.  The rooms, characters,and inventory are ready.  It'll be "silent" (no music or sound fx for this one... couldn't find any appropriate ones).  But I sorta consider this game, in reality, a sort of "proof of concept" for this skunk girl, so I might hopefully someday put her in some more "fleshed out" adventures (i.e. medium length game or longer).

But now I wonder how long your game is going to be if you still need to put in all that work. I still haven't given up hope of finishing by tomorrow night and I've put in less work in total than you have in 2 days.
It's not that long actually. Most of my time was spent on animations, since I'm still a fairly unexperienced artist, it takes me quite some time to draw and animate sprites. And I'm testing out multiple features that I haven't scripted in AGS before, so this has also slowed me down. I guess you could say that I have simply been inefficient with my time.

It's great too see all these updates and progress people are making. Hopefully they all get finished and released too.

Hobo, Mags is great for experimenting and learning. (nod)
Well, Gurok has improved the code, so now I can finish coding those puzzles we all love... cause otherwise you just run the maze with nothing else to do. (laugh)

@Hobo I quite understand. Most of my time has been spent learning how to make graphics in Inkscape and then animating them in Spriter Pro. At this point I'm not even sure I have a single thing done that's going in my final game...
But your art and animations look quite nice. So I'd say the time is well spent, even if it takes awhile.

Decided to make all our music/ambient sound from scratch for this MAGS because I am a sucker for punishment. Here's one of 5 tracks I made tonight;

Why do I get the feeling that bucket is going to end up on that guard's head? Just too much Skyrim?

I had an idea for an entry working along with someone else, but he isn't able to due to time constraints... so I've come up with another idea that I think I can handle myself in the remaining week and a bit that's left.  If I can, I'll post again - if not I'll go and hide in a corner!

selmiak, I love what you did with Pinback's (already awesome indeed) background. This is an absolutely AMAZING effect.

I'm slightly stunned to find myself with a working prototype having only decided to start working on this thing tonight.

It's not pretty, but here's the proof:



Slightly better...

@DBoy - Well done for finishing your game already. Do consider adding something in the way of background music or noise. You've still got a week to go.

yeah, grab a track from eric matyas or search for "royalty free" (music) on soundcloud, listen to some tracks until you find a fitting one and add this. this would be way cooler than a silent game.
