I have been working on new stuff, but not really blogging about it, since my dev time is pretty limited. However I’m having a go at making something for 1-Bit Clicker Jam, and thought that maybe keeping a devlog will help keep me from slacking off, knowing that other eyes might be on my progress.
Exciting Adventures in Clickable Space is inspired by the original Elite (1984). Explore a procedurally-generated galaxy of planets (or, at least, text descriptions of planets), trade between them, combat space-pirates, or be one yourself. In two colours. At original GameBoy resolution (160×144).
So far I’ve got the framework of the UI working and I’m starting on the planet generation code just now.
