We are currenlty looking for pixel artists of whom may be able to contribute.Current Issues:
Highscore Screen: (Coding: average, Graphics: average)
This would probably be broken into two screens. One being the name input screen; the other being the actual display screen. The input screen would appear only when the user got a new highscore (in the top 10 or so); the Display screen would appear after game completion and would also be accessible from the main menu. Scores must be persistent so they would need to be written to a file.
Menu Screen: (Coding: medium, graphics: medium)
Implement a nice looking menu screen that lets the user select from appropriate options (probably using the mouse). I think “Story Mode”, “Survival Mode”, “Highscores”, “Credits”, and “Quit” would be a good start. After a set timeout period the game should return to the “TITLE” state if no option is selected.
Title Screen: (Coding: easy, Graphics: medium/hard)
Add a Title State (replacing the placeholder). Should be a good looking screen with the game title that flashes a message saying press any key or some such. Some minor animations would be nice. This requires much more in the realm of art than coding. On key press game State changes to “MENU”.How to contribute:
If your not too sure about github/git you can learn a gist of the commands from try_git
. If you feel uncomfortable going through this process you can post your pixel art/code here on this thread and we can submit it for you. You can, of course, make a pull request to the repo itself. If your not sure where to start, and want to help, you can post your related questions here also.
