"Small space shooter" – a Dogme 95 inspired game
One of the rules is:
"Filming must be done on location. Props and sets must not be brought in."
The thought struck me: "I'll make a Dogme Game where I'm only allowed to use this set of artwork and nothing else".
I have allowed myself the following slack:
- I am allowed to use text
- I am allowed to draw Kenneys graphics using another color in the SpriteBatch.Draw() call
- I am allowed to scale the artwork
So far, I am very happy with the result. I am getting quite a bit of feedback from friends' kids on what needs to be added, so every once in a while I update the project.
What it looks like so far
How to play
using the arrow keys,
while firing these
using the space key, to hit these
who are firing these
towards you (avoid them, they're bad for you!)
You can also try to hit these
which break into these
some of them even have powerups (shield/more guns).
As you progress through the levels, more enemies appear, shooting faster, eventually with targeting shots.
Try it - play or get code
You can play it with or without installing it (using click-once-deployment).
You can download the project here (xna 4.0, vs 2010), there aren't a lot of comments, but variable names are pretty descriptive
