Hey all! Memorychick is officially back and plans to stay for a while now Having spent nearly all her life playing video games herself, let's move on to the main topic of this post, shall we?
I've been playing around with Pokemon GBA ROMs for a few years now. Now, even though I still lack any real programming skill, I downloaded Petit Computer on my DSi XL and transferred it to my regular (non-Little purposes) 3DS. Yes, I realize that program is not beginner-friendly. But doing an Internet search last night I found GameMaker 8, a tool that IS for novice programmers, and I am working on a PC prototype of my video game, to be titled "Molly's Preschool Playland" (Molly is the Mii I mainly use on my Little-purposes 3DS, although she's not the Personal Mii there because she was created on the normal 3DS). Molly's Preschool Playland is being written for PC ONLY as a prototype - when I'm finished with that I'll figure out some way to port it to the 3DS.
The game will involve two main areas in which the player can do whatever they want, without direction from a (real) adult - the playroom, and the backyard. To be honest I'm basing the game on what used to be available on This is Daniel Cook (or Emily Yeung)'s website for kids to do as I enjoyed that. But there will be certain different things available for kids and kids at heart to do that were not available on the other sites (and NO actual reference to the other game will be made in the program, it's just being used as the basis for my work). I am also personal friends with a children's entertainer and I'm planning on asking him to record song samples for use with one of the game's features.
Is anyone a Little Gamer interested in trying the PC prototype of Molly's Preschool Playland, and/or the final product for release on the 3DS, when I'm finished working on the game? If so I'll be glad to post updates during the development process!
