Imponderabilia V 0.7

Hello all, this is an update to this project. That post contains a link to both the up to date engineering manifest of this project, as well as context to this post. But if you’re not here for the code talk then… it doesn’t matter I guess! I hope who ever may be reading this is having a great day and all is right in their world. Today I bring with me what will likely be the final build of Imponderabilia. The game has been extremely fun to work on, and really has taught me so much about architecture that I really look forward to applying to future projects.

Final build? But this is Version 0.7? Great observation! I wouldn’t feel comfortable dubbing this build as a completed version as we have not worked much (or at all) on the aesthetic of the game. So, as I’ve said in the previous build postings, I’m not an artist, this build is simply a proof of mechanics and architecture.

What has changed from previous build? Version 0.3 was largely an implementation of independent features which utilized the “InputGrouping” class I wrote and posted here.

  • Feedback
    • Emphasis on letting player know when an action has been completed
    • Indicators of when an interaction is available and how engage
  • Features
    • Implemented Rice Prep interaction
    • Implemented dependency between interactions
      • Player must cook rice first, then roll rice with fish, then cut roll.
      • Player can hold as many rice or uncut rolls as desired
    • Score system
      • Simple score system which considers the amount of sushi and quality/completion of required interactions
    • Added a timer which will end game after count down.
  • Bug Fixes
    • Key Sprite Manager (check engineering manifest in link at top of page)
      • Added FlipSprite method which fixed the irregularity in key sprite “pressing” animation
    • Sushi Roller
      • Countdown animation no longer misfiring when checking for input
    • Player Animator
      • Small bug fixes, added front and back walk animations

Here you go! Please enjoy, and direct any feed back you have to aidantakami@gmail.com

For those of you seeking a little more meat, below is my RiceMeter Game Object script. The product of this script can be seen when you approach the diamond colored grill in my build above. It consists of 2 sliders, and is meant to simulate the act of making rice.

By pressing space bar before the game start, the player adds rice to the pot which they will begin to cool once they “Interact”. The interaction begins once the player presses the indicated keys “AWDS” in that order. The player will now have begun the interaction. Players repeat that same motion of AWDS repeatedly to add water and clean the rice. however, once the water is full, the player can no longer add water, nor clean the rice. But players can drain the water by holding down space, which will allow room for more water to be added. But watch out, if you drain too much water, you will lose some rice. The 2 sliders represent the amount of rice, and the amount of water currently in the pot.

By adding rice, the player ends the interaction with more rice and can make more sushi from this rice, however the more rice added, the more tedious it is for the player to balance between adding water and draining it once the pot is full.

This script is only the half of the overall game, the other half is where all specific key strokes are registered, and where the outcome of the game is handled. However, this game object stores and deals with the values pertaining to how much rice and water are present, added, lost/drained, and all the above, making it (hopefully) a more enjoyable script to read. Here’s some code:
