Contrast (A Game Done In 9 Hours)

Contrast is a game that was done in 9 hours. It is a different kind of platform game, because you have infinite double jumps. It uses very few colors ingame(black,white,silver, and yellow) and uses some other colors in the menu and the credits. It has 11 levels (one being a tutorial), and a final, extremely hard level.

Today I am giving myself a challenge. I am going to make a game in only 9 hours and see how it finishes. I will be posting pretty much everything on my game, and so that every one can see the things I am doing.

July 31st:
19:58 - I will start by getting a basic idea, and drawing my sprites.
20:21 - Have an idea, finished some sprites, and have started coding.
20:34 - Went to take a shower, and eat dinner. Stopped timer.
21:07 - Came back, started timer again.
21:30 - Have the engine working. Going to work on the menu now.
22:38 - Finished the menu but got a bit distracted. Haven't done anything since 21:50.
22:54 - Made one more level and tried fixing the level display, but it isn't really working. I'm going to sleep and continue tomorrow. I still have 7:15:36 to work on this.
August 2:
21:30 - I have been EXTREMELY busy the last 2 days, and therefore haven't had time to work on the game. I'll try to work on it a bit now.
21:53 - I have now 5 out of 21 planned levels, fixed the level display, and have fixed a collision error as well. Everything going fine.
22:02 - Made one more level. I have other things to do so I am going to stop. Still have 6:46:42 to finish this game.
August 4:
11:03 - Once again I was very busy yesterday, but I have a lot of time to work on this today!
11:24 - I have now made horizontal and vertical platforms, however there is one kind of vertical platform that isn't working.
12:17 - Finally got the moving platform to work, however I have wasted a full hour on that.
13:05 - Made a credits page (with a link to this devlog) and found the music for my game. I'm going to stop for today and finish this tomorrow. Still have 4:52:58 to finish this game.
August 7:
18:55 - If you're wondering why I haven't been working on this for a while, it is because I have been looking for fitting music for my game. Luckily I have found it, and will be able to continue working on my game.
19:30 - Added the music, and put in an effect for when the player dies. However I have a new problem with those same vertical platforms!
19:40 - I'm going off the computer for a bit. I'll come back in a while. I've only got 3:50:03 to finish this game, and I'm still missing 13 levels. I must fix those moving platforms or I'm screwed!
20:22 - I'm back, and ready to continue development. I have been thinking, and I think I will only make 16 levels, instead of 21.
20:31 - Finally fixed that buggy platform! Just in time for dinner! I am so thankful for the instance_deactivate function! I have 3:40:53 left, and I am pretty sure I can make 7 levels by then.
August 13:
11:26 - I have been taking a break from this. I needed some time to think about everything that I would do now. I have 3:40:53 to work on this today, so I'm hoping I'll finish this today.
12:22 - It has been about an hour since I started working, and I have only made one more level, and put the title of the game in the menu. Yes you heard me correctly, this game now has a name! It is called Contrast,because the game is mainly black, white, and grey, excluding the goal which is yellow, the credits page which has a blue button that takes you to this devlog, and the menu, because the option selected is red. And once more, I am making a change of plans. The game is only going to have 10 levels (not counting level 0), which means I only have one more level to make, however this level will be really cool, because it will be a boss.
13:05 - Started working on the final level, and got a neat camera shake at the start of the level. I'm going to eat lunch now. Have about 2 hours left to work on this.
13:59 - Finished eating lunch, and I am now ready to finish this game!
15:28 - Finished the game! With still 36 minutes and 7 seconds on the clock. I now only need to move this topic to the Finished Games forum, change the link in the game, upload the game to mediafire, shorten it with AdFly, and I have finished everything!
15:59 - Now I have completely finished everything. I hope you like this game as much as I enjoyed making it!

Alright! One more Reviewers Choice Game! This game is a clear improvement in comparison to Chocolate Journey and History Man.
