Again, I chose to prioritize my health and devoted my spare time to making a green juice for the next two days and to the gym, where I ran for an hour. I never mentioned, but after a rough event that took place last weekend, I decided to take control of my life. I decided to do a juice fast for a short while. I’ve done this before and it greatly affected my mental health. I remember feeling like my anxiety and depression were cured. I want that again. To share some progress, I’ve been feeling more in control of my mind, and I’ve lost 7 lbs in 7 days. Physically, I’m feeling better than I have in months. Ok, I made a game, too. What did I make?
I didn’t finish what I wanted to do, but I made a racer demo. I followed a tutorial based from the LA based game development school, Gamegen. The tutorial tries to recreate the classic arcade game, Speed Race. The game is basically done, but lacks art. I’d like to explore it with a twist for a future project for A Game a Day. For now, it’s simple. You move with the arrow keys, and hold space for gas. I’m using a red square for the player, and blue squares for the rival cars. I have a few ideas on how to add a twist on this. I look forward to tomorrow. For now, I’ll say goodnight. Thanks for reading again!
