Creativity can take you anywhere. Artistic practice leads to artistic pieces and projects. Game design is unlike any task I have taken on. Not only is there the style, the personality, the design, the tone – but I have found that even in the most constrained games, there is an infinite amount of ground and space in which you need to cover. Even a game that takes place in one small room, there are generative elements which come and go, doors which must be opened or closed, and the physics of the universe must be accounted for or disregarded.
I am happy to have programmed a moveable character and item which have lives of their own. I really look forward to learning more about scripts as well as being able to program parallax scrolling backgrounds.
