Well, I have not had a lot of time to work on my entry since the first rough draft of the design document was made, but I have made some progress. Basically, I've begun putting together the initial prototype for the game just to see if the gameplay itself is any fun. This is a question I figured might be better to answer now than later. Unfortunately, we still can't answer that question because the gameplay still is not there.

What I do have is some of the game elements displaying. I have some randomly generated addition problems displaying for Player 1 and 2 and I'm accepting XBox 360 controller input for correct (and incorrect) answers. You can also move a cursor around on the screen with the thumbstick. I've also got my initial design for the Nurfs done and they are spawning at equal time intervals and moving across the screen.


I'm having a lot of fun beginning to make this game take shape. Going to be very interesting to see if I will managed to actually finish up in time to have a full functional fame for the Dream Build Play contest. I will be submitting whatever I have by that point, but it would be nice to at least have something that not everyone would laugh at.

Here is the version one of the source for Nurf Herder for you to play with. I plan on releasing each version as I go so that everyone can follow the progress of the code as I continue to work on my entry. Not sure who it will benefit, but it's the plan so I'm sticking to it.
