“Slightly” late to the party, but post-jam Lumberjack vs Ancient Druid’s Cybertree just got released on Game Jolt.

This new version contains some minor balance tweaks when compared to vanilla LD and 10 brand new Game Jolt achievements to unlock for some extra challenge (and great excuse to introduce more incredibly lame puns).

In addition to WebGL, Win standalone and Android, included now are also Linux and MacOS builds.

Play it here.

Wild Growth has been making some progress recently!

MachiaVillain Ludum Dare

Zimra and I made a ludum dare three years ago with the theme “You are the Villain”. The result was The Villain’s Rules, a game that reached #6 overall and Silver medal on Theme (yay!). We also wrote a post mortem about it. After finishing some important projects, including the game Freaking Meatbags on Steam, we began the production of Machiavillain. Machiavillain is the evolution of The Villain’s Rules, and while we changed some things, it’s still in the same silly spirit.

Basically, the game changed from a linear level with traps to a procedural world where you have to raise your monsters, build your mansion and slay the victims by the villains’ rules. The game was really praised for its mood, the horror clichés and the jokes. We wanted to go further on this funny side and deliciously evil mood while making the game more management / strategy style. We felt it was definitely better mechanics that can be played for longer hours.

Making ludum dare was very important because thanks to that Zimra could work on her first game, I had an interesting project to build after Freaking Meatbags and we’re even doing our first Kickstarter!

Meet the monsters, discover our gameplay systems and come see our mad scientist laboratory on Kickstarter. You can donate with blood or money… just kidding about blood. Or maybe I don’t. Not sure.

PS: we gathered more than 20% of our goal in the first 24H hours ! Thank you everyone :)

Confetti

How many time could you avoid Confetti?

Confetti is a minimalist casual game which I did in a few hours. Play using only SpaceBar or left mouse button so as to inverse bullet velocity – clockwise or counter-clockwise. This project is an attempt to do a simple casual game for mobile device – an one-touch project. This game is still in development – I work on another aesthetic. For a better experience, download this game as an application or a mobile device APK file. Feel free to share with me your impression. Thank you for playing.

Confetti is available for free on Itch.io – as usual.

Commander Wallis and the Tentacled Menace

Even though I participated in many LDs now, I never actually published a game. Last month, I was sitting together with a good friend of mine and we lamented our habit of working on these lengthy projects in private, only to discard them eventually and then start something else. We decided to change this, to start putting things out there!

So we came up with this: we’re making one game every month of 2016, and we’re publishing every one of these games, as we hopefully get better at this over time!

Our first game is out now: Commander Wallis and the Tentacled Menace

CommanderWallis4

It’s a turn-based retro strategy game, available for free on itch.io, for Windows, OS X, and Linux.

In this game, you take on the role of Commander Wallis, a medieval watchman who must protect the shrines of the Holy Spheres from a sudden onslaught of tentacled beings of unknown origin. It is your job to prepare the defenses, place troops, and then coordinate the battles.

We focused a lot on strategy aspects and issues of balance. As you progress through the levels, you get access to more types of units and defensive measures, and we wanted to make sure every unit and item in the game has a unique purpose.

This is a personal moment for me. For a non-game programmer like me, Ludum Dare has over the years been a tremendous creative outlet, and it’s these LD experiences that ultimately prompted me to try game development in earnest. What we need most of all is feedback, doesn’t matter if it’s negative, but it has to lead us towards actionable items on our upcoming games.

Hi folks. I did recently a little game – something which seems to me strange, but good enough. This is a minimalist puzzle game with a clear aesthetic – an old computer. I focused on the gameplay, searching to increase difficulty. Don’t forget that it’s a prototype in order to do something more interesting. Now I need some feedback so as to understand what is good and what is bad. Please, give me an idea – just a few lines to share with me your point of view. I have created 40 levels. I wish you the best. Thank you friends.

Oöcyte is available for free on Itch.io ++

PS : play for free, but don’t forget to give me a feedback – a few lines. I need it :)
