I wanted to try GM Studio, and I wanted to participate in a Minigame Comp, so I decided to make a simple indie minigame in GM Studio!<br /> <br /> Unfortunately, this project didn&#039;t go so well. First of all, GM Studio wasn&#039;t cooperating with my PC - to get it to compile games, I had to change a very-not-intuitive setting in the GM options! Making an indie game required original sprites, and spriting has never exactly been my forte. I also had a hard time coming up with a compelling idea for the competition, and it didn&#039;t help that I was dealing with some family issues.<br /> <br /> I came up with a taco-loving rabbit named Katarina the Hippopotamus who has a fake mustache - and is not a hippo! It makes absolutely no sense. Also, the game has armed alligators who shoot baseballs at you.<br /> <br /> Earlier this year, I was backing up some old stuff and stumbled upon a demo of this game. Apparently, in the past I deemed this game to be so not notable that I never even backed it up! Curious about my old work, I opened up the file and decided that it would be fun to make a playable game with it. This game is only one level long, as there&#039;s definitely a reason I didn&#039;t turn this into an epic three-hour adventure! Still, there&#039;s a possibility I&#039;ll adapt this engine for something down the road.<br /> <br /> I can&#039;t say it&#039;s the greatest thing of all time, but here&#039;s a one-level game if you&#039;re actually interested.1Sun, 30 Aug 2020 23:45:03 +0000Nite:https://bibbyteam.jaxboards.com/index.php?act=vt1697&findpost=52This sounds a bit random.
