Ludum Dare: Marvie!

I produced an entry for this month’s Ludum Dare. It’s a traversal memory game where you have to find your way back home, but you can only pick one path forward, picking wrong forces you to reset.

A brief description:

Marvie is spacefaring alien and can only travel along asteroids. But Marvie has a problem.

He kind of disintegrates every asteroid he touches. He can’t help it. His psychologist says the condition will only get worse with age. How tragic.

Implemented almost entirely in JavaScript, this uses the DOM to render the playing area.

Google Maps API

I decided to try out the Google Maps API today and see what all I could do. It’s surprisingly easy to learn how to use the Maps API. Within about an hour I had got it set up and added a custom marker on the map to show where I guessed the Kitsap Regional Library in Bremerton, WA was. Turns out I was pretty close.

Check it out here:

You can even click the marker and it’ll say something, although something rather basic.
