This is the original post from my previously separate 7DFPS blog. Moved it here because running multiple blogs seemed like a bad idea after thinking about it for a bit.
So right now I’m slowly but surely preparing for the week that is 7DFPS (Seven-Day First Person Shooter), and one thing I thought would be worth making is a blog where I can post small bits and screens and things when necessary, and do a daily log of what I worked on/learned/failed at/etc. Just sort of a central hub for everything about my game. The first post will be this, explaining the blog and 7DFPS and such, and the last will be a link (or links) to the game.
So what is 7DFPS? Well, it’s a game jam that goes from August 10th to August 17th. Entrants have seven days to create a First Person Shooter. The only rule is it’s got to be a first person game, and you have to shoot stuff. And judging from previous entries, both of those things are interpreted somewhat loosely. But I don’t think I’ll be getting too experimental with the gameplay. I just want to make something where you run around and shoot stuff.
So that, in a nutshell, is what this whole thing is about. I’ll try to keep the posting relatively frequent but stick to things I think are interesting or big, with at least one post a day summing up what I got done and what I need to do. Please feel free to comment away as well on anything I post on here; if you’re taking the time to read and look at the posts, I’m gonna value most anything you’ve got to say about it, good or bad. Now, let’s get ready to make some games!
