Developing our new game

Hey everyone, this is Mike. I’m the lead programmer on the mindful xp project and each week I’ll be doing some blog posts on how development on our games are going.

Because of the tight deadlines we set for ourselves with each game our focus is on rapid prototyping and getting results onscreen as soon as we can. Instead of weeks or days we need to think on the scale of hours with our project.

So here’s a little look at our next game with is currently unnamed. It’s going to be an abstract shooter with a special meaning behind everything you’re doing. We started today on the project and hope to have it playable for everyone by Monday next week.

Here’s a screenshot to get a sense of what we’re working on. As you can see right now we’re at the stage where there is just programmer art, but Dan (the art guy here) will be adding his own touches very soon.
