I’ve started work on a mini/prototype game and reached a point now with Stencyl where I am actually able to put together a semi-decent gameplay prototype in less than a day 🙂
Its pretty neat being able to whip up a couple of placeholder graphics in photoshop and filterforge, and then put it all together in Stencyl to test out the basics of the gameplay and mechanics for a game idea. I highly recommend trying out Stencyl for prototyping if you’re looking for something to help speed up the process for when you’re making proof of concept for a client or what not 🙂
Twitch Defense (super early work in progress demo)
You control the object at the center of the screen, and your goal is to survive for as long as possible. Shoot the incoming red enemies by pressing the arrow keys in the direction of the enemies.
Dont shoot the green bonus objects, that will give you a negative score… but letting the bonus object hit you, will grant you a big positive score.
I plan on adding an upgrade menu that allows the player to unlock and upgrade new bonuses and features as they play the game more.
