The aim of this MiniLD is collaboration.

What

Make a game. Find as many ways to work together as you can. If you’re struggling, here are some suggestions:

  • work in a team;
  • use somebody else’s engine/assets/tools;
  • create an engine/assets/tools for others to use;
  • discuss the direction of your game with others;
  • playtest others’ games;
  • have somebody else choose your theme/suggest one for others;
  • share food and gamedev tales;
  • create a multiplayer game and let the players work together.

Looking for a team, engine or assets? Respond below, or leave your own comment describing: 1) what you can/want to do; 2) what you’re after; 3) how to contact you. You can also ask in the #ludumdare IRC channel on irc.afternet.org.

Want to advertise some of your creations? Leave a comment below detailing where people can find them, and any relevant documentation, etc.

Already have a team? Team up with someone else, include new people, or try some of the other suggestions.

When

Starts: June 26th. If you’re reading this post, it’s on: what are you waiting for?!
Ends: 00:00, July 28th, wherever you are, or longer if you need it.

Rules

If posting assets/code for others to use, please ensure the conditions of use are clear.

If you want to bend or break the rules, that’s also cool. Just have fun and *be nice*.

Theme suggestions (optional)

There’s no mandatory theme, but if you need some inspiration, choose one or more of the following:

  • sanity (or lack thereof);
  • chaos remixed;
  • The Sponge;
  • overseer;
  • underling;
  • SWARM;
  • denial.

EDITS:

  • Several people have said they’d be more inspired to create co-op multiplayer games rather than creating cooperatively. That still sits nicely with the theme as far as I’m concerned, so if making multiplayer games is your thing, go for it!
  • I’ve been asked a couple of times if the deadline can be extended, so people can finish their games. Of course! This is only a MiniLD so the rules are quite relaxed anyway, but I’ve changed the date above. Enjoy! :)

Hi there,
Here’s another one for my Neil Creates series where I recreate the dice mechanics of Dice Hunter. It’s a great game!
This is a series where I try to recreate some assets, art style, gameplay mechanics, and other components and/or elements that make up other games. I also share some techniques and best practices that I learned so far while recreating previous works of art. Enjoy!
Play. Learn. Create.

If you have comments, suggestions, recommendations, please do comment, I may have made an error here and there and I’ll be more than honored to learn more. And if you enjoy the series, please do subscribe to be updated for more.

BatteryUnknown’s PowerGrounds – an LD Multiplayer Game

I finally had the time to put the timelapse up:

 

If you’re looking to play a quick multiplayer game with some friends, check it out:

What’s most amazing to me is that the hacked-together multiplayer server hasn’t crashed once since the game went live, serving more than 22 thousand player sessions I expected it to need more handholding or even bugfixing 😉 there have been some bugfixes on the client side (see changelog) but overall it’s been relatively smooth sailing.

I’ll put up a downloadable client and a downloadable server at some point, because I don’t want to leave behind a non-functioning shell after the judging period is over 😉

Lightning has struck the apartment building, all power is down. Descend into the basement to restore it.

I didn’t manage to make it into a proper game, that’s why it’s labeled “tech demo”. I hope it’s still a good start for something that could become a full game in the future.

I thought you did. If so, try out my cube-laden abstract finance game, Tycoon. Your feedback is welcome, and I’ll review you back if you review and let me know here.

Thanks,
