Hey everyone! I know said the project would be next, but I FINISHED MY FIRST GAME! It's called Dual In the Desert, and I made for the Game Dev Network's Big Festive Jam. He're a look of how I made it.
I won't beat around the bush, I think I screwed up big time. The game if functional, but there is no end to it. The theme was surprise, so I trying to make a FPS, and try to make the surprise in that there is one stupid looking enemy.
A big lesson I learned from this was to not over-extended yourself when working under a time limit. I knew how to create enemies with health, but I did not know how to make enemies follow you. I wrote my own script, but when I marked the player as a prefab instance, it didn't follow. This is the problem I was trying to fix most of the weekend. I fixed it.. but it was the middle of Sunday. I am still learning.
However, I can say I enjoyed this a lot, as it was fun creating games. In fact, I think I find more fun to create them than to play them.

And for the record, go all out on the critique. I know it's bad so my feelings won't be hurt.
Anyways, that is it for today! The project will be next week, I promise. Here's another hint: "It happened before you were born".
Thanks for reading, have a nice day/night, take care, and I will see you guys next time.
