Ribbon Runner - WGK 2012 - Games Bonanza
Last weekend (31 August - 2 September 2012) I attended 2nd edition of National Conference on Computer Games Development in Gdańsk, Poland. This time I didn't have to travel far because I now live in Gdańsk :) It was great to see face-to-face again all these people from Polish gamedev and Warsztat community. Lectures were interesting (well, at least some of them :) There were other attractions too like poster session or Developers Showcase, where developers presented their game projects.
I spent sunday participating in Games Bonanza - a competition where teams of up to 4 people had to develop a game in 8 hours... and we took first place! Thanks for voting for us. The theme this year was "space-time warp", so we came up with an idea for a game which is 2D, but played on a 3D surface that folds, tars and glues like a sheet of paper. Here is a video from our game:
Title of the game - "Ribbon Runner", as well as name of our team - "';DROP TABLE uczestnicy --" we came up in a hurry. Our team was:
We developed it in Visual C++ 2010 Express, using Direct3D 9 for graphics and FMOD library for sound. As a base we used framework prepared by Krzysiek. You can download full source code here: WGK2012.ZIP (12.5 MB). In case you want to compile and run it yourself, remember that: 1) Release version crashes on level 5. 2) Levels don't finish automatically, you can switch them with F1..F9 keys.
