CoopJam

[Submit | Browse Entries]

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! :)

First gamejam and first time developer

15 hours ago | July 26th, 2017 4:21 am

I‘m a new developer and I’m looking forward to the Ludum Dare event that’s coming up! It’ll be interesting to put all my knowledge together to make a game in a set time, I have high hopes that I(and if my Team decides to join in) will hopefully make one within’ said time period!

 

Not long ago I was looking at things like this and got really jealous that I couldn’t do it as I knew nothing about programming, only took 3 months and I’m intermediate at it (C# and Javascript, I do know HTML and a small bit of Python, also Ruby and C++).

I look forward to trying out the games that get submitted and I hope you guys will also check out my submission when the time comes.

 

It’s nice to see developers from around the Globe come to one place and chill out.

A Composer’s First Game Jam (Looking for a team!)!

1 day ago | July 25th, 2017 4:09 am

Hi there, everyone!

My name is John, I’m a composer and guitarist in New Jersey.  This will be my first time embarking into Ludum Dare and a game jam in general!  I’ve seen so many awesome games and content and I’d love to be part of an awesome team this time around!  I love collaborating with creative, exciting groups and can’t wait to see what comes around here!

I compose music and sound design in a variety of styles, some of my influences are Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill), Gustavo Santollala (The Last Of Us) and Nobuo Uematsu.  I invite you to check out some of my past work here on my reel. https://soundcloud.com/johnkiernanmusic/sets/john-kiernan-demo-reel

I hope all is well with each and every one of you and I hope to speak soon!

-John

Mini LD anyone?

Okay, so we were supposed to arrange a little local jam in which people would gather in one place and we all would have participated in Ludum Dare 39, just to gather people and socialise with fellow game makers, have fun and the same time take part to the LD. The problem is, we were suppose to have it in the end of august, in which we thought the Ludum Dare 39 would be this time, but suddenly we found out its month early, and we just couldn’t cope with that! But we would still want to arrange jam in the end of august. Sooooo…

Is anyone having/going to arrange a mini LD anywhere near the time the real LD was suppose to be? If you are, please let me know, then we could gladly join to it too 😀

If no ones going to already arrange one, then, would there be anyone interested to join mini LD if we arranged it? It would be at the end of august, when i think most of people thought the real LD would be, and it would probably be 48 hours jam like the real LD is. We could come up the theme and all, but before we start anything, we would like to know if people would take part to it if we arranged the thing.

If anyones interested to take part on a mini LD, please comment here so we know how many would be up to it 😀 or if you have any ideas or opinions, let us know.

Hello, developers of miniLD74! We are the beginner’s team and we make the first game for jam.

It is 2d arcade game about rover`s adventure on an unknown planet.

He has a simple purpose: to investigate everything, but weather tries to prevent him (a rain and an earthquake).

Just look at this fine gif :)

Looking for a team for LD39!

Posted by
11 days ago | July 15th, 2017 5:45 pm

Hey there, Ludum Darers!

I’m a software developer, willing to use Unity3D for the Ludum Dare 39.

This time, I’m willing to work in a team with complete strangers (leaving my comfort zone a.k.a working with my friends and trying to meet new friends here).

So, what crew I need for my ship? Argg!

  1. An artist that can make textures.
  2. Modeler to make models (although I can do that myself, I’d like to have someone more experienced than me)
  3. A sound composer is always good, right? For sound effects and soundtracks. But I actually can do that myself (well – partly. I can make piano, violin & guitar based soundtracks as I play those).
  4. Other programmers are also invited 😀

So let’s set sail towards LD39!

If you want to contact me, I’m available on Discord (@KingSolomon#8565), I can be reached by Email (yotam.salmon@gmail.com) or here in the comments!

Have a great jam!

Starbucks Coffee for LowPoly Daily in Twitter

My entry for LowPoly Daily with the theme: Coffee. Youtube process with fbx files (link included in the youtube video’s description).

I’ve been studying Unity shaders little by little. And in this entry I tried to use the one in the book im reading. Fortunately the result is somehow to what I expect but it seems that the cup is a little bit thicker.

 

The First Ever…

Hi there, Ludum Dare!

I would like to share the unboxing of the first ever Filipino-made video game, Anito: Defend a Land Enraged. It’s an adventure game with lots of RPG elements (plus an eat and sleep system). It won an award back then with its innovative audio design. Anito also sparked the whole video game industry in the Philippines. I’m sharing this because maybe we can get a few things from Anito and incorporate it with our own games.

I’ll also be putting up a gameplay video soon, so be sure to hit that subscribe button and stay tuned! 😀

Please do tell me what you think in the comments below, thank you LD Community! 😉

Che-che-check these out!

A keystroke logger program which resides on tray. The app is displayed when the tray icon is double clicked. The app features display of keystroke logs including time and date of each key pressed. it also has the simple analyzation tool, and the ability to email the file to others.

The theme is changeable and you can make one. It is under JavaFX’s CSS so it will be mostly familiar to all. All the themes must be saved under the “css” folder.

In need of a team

16 days ago | July 10th, 2017 5:40 am

Hello everyone, I am simply looking for a small team to work on a new 2d game project for MiniLD #74. Programmers, Artists, or Musicians with any kind of experience are very welcome.

My main goal for the project is to make a 2d pixel game. I haven’t decided what it is about or what perspective it will use, but hopefully we can all agree.

It would be nice to have at least 4 people in the team, but I could make an exception for more if needed.

If you are interested just send me a message in Discord @Nicodend#1051 or email me at pgnico.user@gmail.com.
