[Finished] Stabilize was developed in 2021 and is the smallest project I’ve worked on. The idea came to one saturday when I was about to sleep. The idea was to create a kind of game that kids get hooked on for no reason, kind of like Flappy Bird. Such an easy concept, but difficult to get far in. I finished this project rather quickly, while still making it feel polished (or not).
The most difficult part was coming up with textures. I needed a sprite that would communicate to the player that it is rotating. If the ball was a solid color, you wouldn’t know how fast it was rolling. That’s why the first thing I came up with was to divide a circle into four pieces and color the pieces black and white. This looked too simple and I reworked it into what you see now.
Some of the things I added to make the game feel more worthwhile was a changing backround and a platform that keeps getting smaller. Once you get over a hundred seconds, the backround will become grey.
The name “Stabilize” is pretty straightforward and pretty much requires no explanation. This game was fun to work on and hopefully will be of entertainment to some!!
