Even though this project is almost complete, I wanted to create a page for it, so you guys know that it's coming. Once I release it, I'm hoping that many members of The Daily Click will download it and play together in one big game! Pictionary online is...well a game of pictionary online using lacewing. One person is a drawer and is given a word or phrase to draw. The other players will be able to see what that person is drawing and tries to guess the word. If you guess the word correctly, you'll receive 5 points. When your the drawer, every time someone guesses your word correctly, you'll receive 2 points. The first person to reach 50 points is the winner. As you draw you are able to use multiple colors such as black, white, red, blue, yellow, orange, purple, pink, green, and an eraser. You can also clear the entire screen while you draw. If the word is to difficult for you, you can skip it.
The game takes turns. Every player will have a chance to draw before you get to draw again. In the title frame you are able to choose your own vocabulary list to use online. You can also create your own vocabulary lists in the game! The original vocab list has over 250 words
Current Original Vocab List:
The scoring system is finally complete! Now the points actually matter and you can finish a game! Hooray! It took me all day, but I finally finished it. I'm so glad. The last 5% of this project is to polish the game up and make sure there are absolutely no bugs before I release it to the public, then we can all have one gigantic game. I hope an admin will post this to the news sections when the game is complete so we can have a ton of people play. Trust me, it's great fun! Everyone I played with had a blast
Screenshots coming soon! Make sure to check out the beta in the forums! If you have any suggestions for the game, then this would be the time while I'm polishing it up
Beta 11b is out! Small (actually big) update. I've added a photo log to the game. After each round the game will automatically take a picture of the final drawing and save it. Then you can view all of the drawings in the photo log. From the log you can also delete the ones you hate and blackm- I mean post the ones you like up on the internet I've also added a few more buttons to the game. If you are the host you'll be able to kick any of the players at will. Another button is the camera button. It takes a photo of the current drawing and saves it, so if you don't want to wait until the end of the round. And now...screenshots while playing with Jacob
The Photo Log:
All I have to do is to add the scoring system and polish it up! Then I am done
Worked on the next beta for Pictionary Online today. Now you can change a few of the game factors before you create your own in the lobby! You'll be able to alter the Guesser Points Won; Drawer Points Won; Round Time; Time between the rounds; Final Score; and if you want you can have the first person to guess correctly gets a point bonus!
You can even set the time for the rounds to an evil ONE SECOND...no hope for those games, that's for sure Jacob from clickteam forums and Gamebuilder (on Gwerdy too) had a great idea. If you enable the option, you'll be able to save the drawing at the end of each round along with the drawer and the word, so you can look back at them using a Photo Log and laugh at all the crappy drawings or misinterprets.
