It was a nice break from the main project I'm working on, which should be finished within the next fortnight.

The Black Yeti

A simple puzzle game, for the mini ludum dare 7, which had the theme cryptozoology. In flash, can be played here on kongregate. The source code can be downloaded here.

    Greetings! I’d love to know how you made the “detect”-thing work, but I seem unable to find the source code?
    If you have the time, I’d be very nice if you could help me out.

  3. Apologies about that – I had totally forgotten, included the link in the post there.

    The view calculations are a little weird – from what I remember, here’s what I did:

    To determine if someone sees something it first cast rays out horizontally on front of and either side of the person, and then propagates each of those forwards, like

      
      ^ ...
      ^ -> -> 
      ^ -> ->
    p - -> ->
      v -> ->
      v -> ->
      v ...
    

    both only stopping when an obstacle is met. Probably would be better to do normal ray-casting in most circumstances.

    I didn’t get the thing about ray casting. I thought it’d be whenever I was in front of people but it seemed almost random as to when they say me. Sometimes they see me from a long distance, sometimes not. But I finished it anyway. Good game.
