A quick update on this cat game, then. This is one of the five “smaller” games I mentioned in my new year’s post. Been working on it a bit this week.

It’s taken me a long time to realise it, but I think the game is fundamentally broken in its current form – and I don’t think there’s any way to make it work without scrapping everything and starting over. I’m not sure why I stuck with it this long, actually – it was never something I was all that excited about. I think I mostly just liked the cat thing.

Anyway, I figure I’ll just put together a quick chat room thing at CB2 tomorrow with the code from this, and move on to something else.

    If you were still going to stick with this, I’d want to see a variety of verbs used for the kitty attacking instead of “attack.” Things like, “scratch,” “bite,” “claw,” etc.

    Oh well. I guess this means more free time to spend on the other games.

    17 days to fail your resolution, better than most

    My new year’s resolution was not to start any new projects – haven’t done that yet!

    “I’ll just put together a quick thing tomorrow” is rarely an accurate prediction coming from any programmer.
