Where in the world have I been the past two months?
Late last December Pokki announced their 1UP HTML5 game contest, which ends today. I started working on a World War II themed RTS. As it turns out, making a real time strategy game requires more than 2 months if you’re starting from scratch. So one week before the contest deadline I scrapped that idea and started work on a completely different game.
Fortunately I was able to complete the second concept in time. The game is called Tower and the aim is to build the tallest stack of wooden and stone blocks as you can while racing the clock. For now Tower is only available to Windows users through the Pokki store, but I will put it online for others when the contest is over.
I will put up another post in a week or so detailing how I put Tower together. It was the first time I worked with any of physics libraries (happily decided on ammo.js) but overall everything was straightforward.
