It turns out, getting A* to work is pretty easy if you use the right function calls. After banging my head on the wall for a few hours last night, I finally have this to show for myself.

Yeah, that blue guy found the best path to the money thief. Now that I’ve got this information, my little guys can make informed decisions as to where to move to properly retrieve their monies!

Every four months, there is an event called Ludum Dare. It is a 48 hour solo game competition, and I competed this time! I designed all the gameplay, wrote all the code, did all the art and composed all the music for this little piece. You can watch a short gameplay video below, or play it on Kongregate now! I hope you enjoy it!

Space Junk is an award-winner!

It boggles my mind, but somehow, The Game Studio‘s first official game release, Space Junk, won first place in BoingBoing‘s “Games Inspired By Music” competition!

We beat out a lot of other great games, and in the end, it is all thanks to our players and voters to get us this far! As a reward, keep your eyes open for a new version of Space Junk!

Even though we’re hard at work perfecting the junky space combat in Space Junk for the competition deadline of July 5th, we still need to test it. I decided to take some screenshots while I tangled with ion-spitting foes in micro-gravity. Check out what our current development build looks like after the break.
