#LD33 theme: You are the monster
This game source code on GitHub
I planned on doing something in the clouds, so I have a good idea for the theme: Jack and the Beanstalk, but you are the giant.
Got Impact game engine ready and new project running.
Got beer, juice and chips. Got to feed the cats
Giant inspiration will come from this wikipédia image
Pesky little villager coming to steal my stuff
pesky dude is coming along
little organic dude with beard
Read the story on wikipedia. Turns out Jack is the real "monster" cause:
The original story portrays a "hero" gaining the sympathy of a man's wife, hiding in his house, robbing, and finally killing him. In Tabart's moralised version, a fairy woman explains to Jack that the giant previously robbed and killed his father, which justifies Jack's actions as retribution.
But that gives me an idea: If you (the giant) get killed, a message comes up pointing out all the bad things Jack did to the poor « monster ».

final sprint begins
much progress, too tight to document
game is palyable
Just submitted Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum, my first Ludum Dare attempt. Extremely tense in the final hours making sure it is playable... a crazy sprint!
