J.A.M.E.S. is now a work in progress. For the first day I made some programmer art and began creating a system to control the two arms. So far you can move each arm independently. When the player quits touching, the associated arms will slide back to the bottom of the screen into the starting position shown below. The control system is still somewhat buggy. I plan to revamp it tomorrow. I had hoped to get through more today, but the control system proved to be more challenging than anticipated. I want to make the arms multi-jointed instead of being straight as they are now. I will try to incorporate joints tomorrow to make it seem more like an arm.
Goals for December 4th:
Finish control system
Add planes, helicopters and hot air balloons. These will all behave similarly.
The screenshot below shows the two placeholder arms and the circles indicating where to touch.
