Assignment 0: Learning Your Tools
World Title: Pounding Penguin
Project Length: One Week
Assignment 0 was supposed to be the assignment where you do a little thing to prove that you'll be able to handle the class. Well, it was easy to make something that technically satisfied the assignment, but I wasn't satisfied. It wasn't long until the typical atmosphere of everyone trying to best each other set in (though we were always helping each other out while pushing each other). The result, after a little less than a week of work, was Pounding Penguin, a simple little game where you control a giant penguin that smashes buildings. The game is very, very rough, but considering that I had one week, no team, had to learn a new language, use only what models, textures, and sounds I could find, and that several forces of nature seemed to be against me, I'm very proud of the result.
