Warp Core Breach (7DRL 2013)
« on: March 16, 2013, 09:20:11 PM »
Announcing my entry for 7DRL 2013: Warp Core Breach

This is a little puzzle game written in Python with the pyglet library (no other dependencies).  Not very ambitious, but this is my first completed game since I was 10 years old and writing simple text adventures on the old Apple IIe.

The premise:  The warp core has been sabotaged and in a few seconds a stream of supercharged hyperquark particles are going to burst forth and annihilate anything they come into contact with.  Your only hope is to reconnect the hyperquark spigot to a negatively-charged antiplasma node (or whatever... it's the blue thing).  You do this by moving angled mirrors around to reflect the particle beam.  Press <TAB> to preview the course of the beam, and <R> to rotate the hyperquark spigot.  Try not to get vaporized.

I will try to figure out how to turn this into an EXE by the end of my 7 days, tomorrow, but for those who have Python and pyglet, here it is: https://github.com/joeclark77net/jc77rogue/tree/warp-core-breach

Congratulations on finishing, sounds interesting. I think my version of pyglet is rather old so I'll wait to see if you get an exe up.

Looks like no EXE is coming at this time.  It turns out py2exe doesn't support Python 3.x at this point, and I don't feel like converting my work to an older version of Python and pyglet.  So I doubt I'll be winning the competition but I'm calling it "done" and "successful" at this point even if nobody play tests it!  There's a screenshot on 7drl.org.
