Sound Andrew Kropel --- Hive Screen

  • side view of inside the hive.
  • the hive is a beekeeper's hive, with several rectangular frames in slots in a box. For the tojam game, we aim for just one rectangular fame.
  • tiles show the current state of the honey comb. Each tile holds one hexagonal cell. The tiles are 32x32.
    • empty - available for building
    • nursery - the queen fills these cells with eggs at a rate of 1/second, need 0%, 20%, 40%, 60%, 80%, 100% mature.
    • honey - this acts as fuel, and is what we are defending against bears and beekeepers (full and empty ie. to be filled)
    • select tile - should be 50% opacity (for a foreground layer)

Also we need sprites for:

  • queen bee 64x64 - flapping cycle, in 6 directions
  • worker bee (gardner) 48x48 - flapping cycle in 4 directions
  • worker bee (soldier) 48x48 - flapping cycle in 4 directions
  • worker bee (nursemaid) 48x48 - flapping cycle in 4 directions
  • baby bee (unassigned role) 32x32 or 48x48 - flapping cycle in 4 directions

--- Map Screen

Should be isometric or top down

Tiles for:

  • black "fog of war tile" for unexplored areas
  • green grass
  • flowers

  • hive

Also need sprites for:

  • worker bee (16x16) - flapping cycle in 4 directions
  • bear (64x64) - walking, harvesting, swatting, retreating in 4 directions
  • bee keeper (32x64) - walking, smoking (to calm the bees), harvesting
