This was my #screenshotsaturday today teaching a class of 8-11 year olds how to make video games at www.younggamemakers.com who spearheaded the event working with Games Forum Boston. The kids did a great job following along and it was great to see the light up when their game went from them making a few simple graphics to dodging and shooting at monsters they created.
We’ll have more Road Defender news next week for sure! 🙂 We got our hands on a nice car physics unity package to allow us to prototype realistic vehicle behavior for the demo. Very exciting to explore the excitement and unpredictability of vehicle combat driven by physics! Exciting times ahead!
We’re also making progress with the human turret operator as well. He is being passed around several artists to give the character the needed touches. We should have him also ready for next week’s screen shares.
Some awesome news also regarding developments regarding Cordova / XDK for mobile game development as well, but I’ll save the final results once I’ve worked through a few more plugins to integrate/test hopefully by this coming weekend.
Lastly but not least, we’re “this close” to being able to publish some projects we have in the works to Ouya. With the release today of Chickcharney the latest OS, now all the back end links for HTML5 games to reach the store and more are available. I’ve been working with Tim over at Ouya to test things out and make sure everything works nicely with Construct 2. More coming about this once I’ve been able to really test things out and get the first app of it’s kind published.
