Kayak King

Hey everyone.

This is Nathan from Free Time Studios (SlapHappy!). I'm working solo tonight on a new game I'm calling Kayak King. It's an overhead river racing game where you row a kayak by swiping on either side of the screen. I'll be posting here on Twitter (@neror) as I make progress, but here's a screenshot of the art that I grabbed off of Google image search running in the game.



I'm not an artist so the game probably won't be pretty, but it will work.

As long as it works then the art doesn't really matter IMO. These games are obviously not going to be masterpeices. Doing it without any help can be tough, best of luck!

I'll worry about fun first. If it's fun, then I'll find someone to help me make it pretty.

After some setbacks with the physics engine, I'm back on track (if a little behind). I'm taking a power nap and will have screenshots, and maybe a video of Kayak King by this afternoon.

Woo hoo! I'm happy to announce that I have a playable enough game to show at the showcase. I finished with 25 minutes to spare. Owen Goss even manages to make an appearance in the game!

Screenshots and a video to come after the showcase here at 360idev.
