Start with Nothing won...

I'm thinking there will be alot of survival games.

I'm thinking some kind of void as an item, vacuum in a jar, quantum fluctuation / bubble universe thing

I can't think of anything good. I could probably do a decent pickup rocks naked-in-the-woods survival game, but there's going to be hundreds of those.

Keep it alive was the theme. I couldn't get the above animation stuff working in time so I bailed over to unity.

I ended up deciding on a defend-against-waves kind of game with the player a sort of golem controller mage. I was going to do a pet heal, damage shield, basic mmo pet class kind of stuff with a few standard offensive spells, but I didn't get that far.

I had waves marching towards the goal, basic d20ish combat, some wacky but fun 3rd person movement, and a very broken combat spew window.

I love participating in these but I doubt I'll ever finish one again unless I somehow reverse age 20 years. I spent most of the weekend in this strange brain foggy tiredness mixed with insomnia.

Anime tiddies didn't make the final round, but there are some decent ones in here:

Stuck in a loop won. I couldn't think of anything doable / fun.

I kept thinking of loop quantum gravity and planck stars, but no game sprang forth.

Nomad and clockwork seem like good ones. This one I predict 1000 variations of groundhog day.

Picked up Unreal Engine and going down the path - can anyone recommend a good youtube series for a primer?

Ryan Layley if you have no idea what you are doing. Which isn't you.

The official UE4 tutorials are pretty good, if I can follow them you shouldn't have an issue.

Well I'm a programmer by trade, but nothing in game dev

So here is the guy I was sperging out to LachiusTZ LachiusTZ a while back. Worth a look if you're interested in working on an MMO system that he's created:


I found most Youtube stuff mediocre, although there are some gems throughout. If you're willing to spend $20-30 then Udemy had some good courses. I'm not a programmer though, just have a CS-lite degree. You may find more value elsewhere.
