Re: Minefield - the simplest game ever!

It would be better if it was playable on systems with lower screen resolutions! e.g. by rescaling to fit actual maximum screen resolution. This seems to require way more than 1024x600. Wait, didn't the ZX Spectrum have 256x192 resolution :-D

Re: Biodiversity

My idea was "I wonder if I can make a skeletal object system? Cool, let's test it with a tree. Wow, it works. Hey, if I make each bone get bigger over time in a certain way, I can make it grow! Awesome! Hm, I wonder if I could tweak the tree-generator with a table of parameters - a genetic code, if...

Re: Reflection problems..

I must be missing something. This .love does nothing for me, just a white screen. Any ideas? EDIT: seems to be due to using non-power-of-two image resolutions. I can make the code work on my machine if I change the resolution to use 512x512 instead. Question: why are you not doing this by just creat...

The experimental gameplay project encourages niche ideas; I have no idea what the other guy's inspiration was :-)

Re: Biodiversity

Given that my website seems down at the moment, here are the additional instructions! Hold down CTRL to let you move the pointer without moving the bees. This lets you examine flower genes without necessarily sending bees there. Press v to change screen resolution, f to toggle fullscreen, m to toggl...

Re: Biodiversity

... Another puzzle/sandbox game about plants and genetics ? Can't say I expected such a close competitor. Bizarre. Peculiar! I can honestly say that I didn't research past LOVE projects when entering this month's contest. I'll explore this forum some more and see what other gems are here. Is there ...

Re: Biodiversity

Interesting. I got stuck at tutorial 3. How do you make a different flower to both its parents? There's no mutation and all starting flowers seem alike... It should be possible. Even though the flowers LOOK alike, they should have different genes (combinations of filled in or not-filled-in boxes). ...

This is my first LOVE project, my first Lua app, and my first ExperimentalGameplayProject entry :-) Thanks in particular to the helpful folks on irc #love! This month's Experimental Gameplay Project had a theme of OFFSPRING. My game is a cross between a demonstration of genetics, and a solo puzzle g...
