Ludum Dare

This weekend I’m taking part in Ludum Dare, an online game jam which goes for 42 or 72 hours (depending what jam you’re entering). I’ve chosen to go for 72 hour jam as it’s a lot more relaxed with its rules… plus I have to go out tonight.

I’m making a little cooking game with a small scope: Make some bacon and eggs on toast. However I’m trying to code it in such a way it future-proofs it if I want to come back and add more recipes!

This morning I punched out the pickup/move scripts as they are the hardest. I’ve also set up a very simple start menu/ level select system and now I’m trying to code some specific things like… toast bread.

It’s uh… it’s doing some weird stuff at the moment.

Hopefully I can figure out what that’s all about…

Heated Butter Knife

Avoid unsightly clumps of uneven butter on your toast by using the heated butter knife. While the ergonomic handle remains cool, the blade warms up so that the butter slices off like uh, warm butter, while keeping your toast or waffle in perfect structural condition.

Ultimate College Chef (for iOS)

I finished the first prototype of my Human Computer Interaction term project, it’s a cooking game to teach college students about cooking skills, healthy choices, and budgeting. I know that sounds awful but you should try it out anyway so I can get your feedback. It’s only programmed through the first option in the first level (I won’t apologize for that since I was only required to make a paper prototype and could have done that in a lot less time)

If you have an iPhone or iPod touch, click on this link, then add the page to your home screen and run it from the home screen icon.

I used the Ratchet framework for iOS to build this, which you should also use if you ever need to publish web content on iOS.

Concept : when Fukumoto goes on missions everyone feels th loss because. No one else can cook. I mean, some of them can KINDA cook (Tazaki can make some stuff, Amari can…make…toast?? Miyoshi burned boiled water once) but none of them. Are as good as Fukumoto. So , tired of the many complaints he received whenever he returned, Fukumoto got into this wretched habit of making/prepping a bunch of food before leaving. He’ll throw in some of their favorite meals and just make sure he purchases necessary ingredients because hey, theoretically, even Kaminaga can’t mess up warming some noodles, right ???
He also leaves some very very simple recipes behind (hopefully Sakuma or Odagiri handles those bc they’re the only ones who know how to follow directions) and a ‘Basic Necessities For a Human to Survive’ shopping list for whenever things start running low. Usually with these, they can manage until Fukumoto returns.

Cook, Serve, Delicious! on Steam
One of the few hardcore restaurant sims in existence, Cook, Serve, Delicious! is a deceptively easy game to learn but incredibly challenging to master as you progress through your career from owning a terrible zero star cafe into a five star world famous restaurant.

Guys. this game. This game right here. Holy crap, this is honestly one of the best games I’ve ever played in my life. This game is so addicting. It may not seem like much at first. I honestly bought it just for the sole fact that it was 99 cents on the steam sale. But wow, just go try it.
