Good day of work with @thismatters today, we installed the django-rest-framework which enabled api pages for rooms. This will enable abstracting the grotto data out into new UI’s. I had hoped to get the new html/css/vanilla js UI I started working on in time for Monday’s review, but it seems unlikely.
I’m thinking about rules and process for drawing art for the game. I think it will be a combination of traditional pencil animation for transitions like using a door or lighting a candle, and a visual language that is between pixel art and pencil sketch, using blocks of differing darkness rendered in horizontal ‘scan-lines’ that echo the way the Atari drew to the television screen.
I made a handout for Monday’s review, which is added to the documents section of the mudroom project page.
