|Here we are adrift in a monochrome sea.|
|And here we are, polluting said metaphorical sea. Everybody is getting in on it.|
|I like the concept. It allows us to be garish and colorful and "Candyland"-esque, but defers responsibility for this creative choice to the artificial intelligence and the movement of the player.|
|And the other islands of color are created by equally-sentient little rolling/bouncing cubes.|
Aaaand the trees inherit the color of the ground. Naturally.
I enjoy the fact that Blogger underlines "blogging" in red. It's pre-empting the death of the medium.
I spent the day like I spend everyday.
Until Midday I fretted that I wasn't getting any work done.
Until 3pm I fretted that perhaps I would never get any work done, and that I was somehow fundamentally broken.
I find myself at my desk at 7pm, and work has been completed.
Sometimes I think I should just spend the morning doing something else. Read a book, go to the gym, paint a portrait, build a house.
But then I think:
"What if the fretting is instrumental to the mystical process of getting work done?"
And the cycle continues.
So during my productive blackout, I implemented some vaguely intelligent entities in Cube and Star (A Love Story) - they walk around, they path correctly, and everybody is happy. This is a nice little victory - as it opens the door to a whole world of possibilities.
And; as you can see from the screenshots above - I set the whole world to grey-scale and organised a kind of... "paint the world" situation.
And here we are. Day 6 of March, and Day [X] of this prototype. I can't remember. I think 4. I think it's Day 4. That feels right to me.
Day 1: Map generation and movement
Day 2: Re-write the code to make it neater
Day 3: Shadows, iOS testing and interactions with scenery
Day 4: Rudimentary AI and ground-painting
Ça plane pour moi.
