hey this is nathan again, I remade because uni and tumblr weren't cooperating. But I love you guys so i'll stick around for a bit and maybe just use this to post game dev stuff or stalk you guys idk.
this isn’t going to make future discussion confusing at all
it’s both really amusing and frustrating that Anamanaguchi would tag all their songs from Endless Fantasy as having a bpm of “420”
I figured I should put these up somewhere so people can have a look-see, or just so it’s easier for me to reference them later on. Some of my earlier projects that I don’t have on my computer anymore/can’t upload easily have been omitted.
I’m relatively new to coding; a lot of my background is in design so most of these are pretty simple. But you have to start somewhere, and it’ll be cool to look back on these in time I think.
Python Games/Programs (Hit the play button in the top left to start)
These are projects I worked on for an online course on coursera.org, most with small extensions to the assignment requirements. Strongly recommend the course (“An Introduction to Interactive Programming in Python”) if you want to learn Python or some basic coding in general. Don’t study my code too hard though - the course is best if you learn on your own.
Guess the Number: Try to guess a number within a defined range in a certain number of guesses. Makes simple use of a graphical user interface, with text output to the console.
Stopwatch Game: Hit start, then try and hit stop when milliseconds = 0 to win a point.
Known bugs: Hitting reset then stop will increase the #attempts by one, and occasionally the #wins as well. Will fix soon.
Pong Clone: WASD and the arrow keys to play. This is unfinished; I want to come back to it later and implement some better collision detection since the course’s version was rather simple.
Known bugs: If the ball hits a paddle’s corner, it bounces inside the paddle until it emerges from the other side. Oops.
Match/Memory Game: 16 cards to flip; game keeps track of how many moves you’ve made. I think my record is 12.
Construct 2: “Ultra Ordinary Lad” (just a video here, no playable demos sorry)
This is a game I worked on for a University project, most of which I completed within 12 hours. It’s just 1 level, but I made it mainly to learn how to use the engine and how to make a platformer. Added in a rolling attack at the end since I felt like making something Donkey Kong Country inspired.
ahhh thanks for posting this, I keep missing these events because I haven’t been quite so active, but I still like picking these up in the case that I start working on my pokedex again/playing competitively wish I’d been notified about that Mew event earlier :c
Friendly reminder that the Level 100 Deoxys event for Black/White and Black 2/White 2 starts today! Go get thy Deoxyses
