    Mini Ludum Dare 29 – HORROR

    Posted by

    October is going to some sort of special challenge month, so let’s celebrate Ludum Dare Halloween a bit early.

    The theme is HORROR. Not “interpret the word however you want”, but “try to make something that will genuinely creep people out/horrify them”.

    Technically 17th-18th, but this isn’t strict. Start whenever you want, and finish 48 hours later, or take a little longer if you want (Submissions officially close on the 25th, say). Work alone or in a group, use preexisting media/code if you want, or whatever.

    And, have fun!

      Don’t have much time this weekend but damn, I am reeeal tempted now!

    2. spliter says:

      Considering I just managed to import models into my game, and have fully functional 2D collisions, and partially functional 3D models with animations I’ll definitely participate.

      In other words: I’m In!

    3. Cambrian_Man says:

      Aw, heck. I wasn’t planning on participating, but I have an idea I’ve had for a while that fits this theme, so it looks like I’m going to be in.

    4. sfernald says:

      I am in.

      I have a great idea for a work of interactive fiction.

      Dark sci-fi / horror based on this short story I just love.

    5. Felipe Budinich says:

      Not my cup of tea, but I guess some Cthuloid cosmic horror thingie could do the trick

    6. johnfn says:

      Is the mini going to be rated? If it is, I’ll probably be in. (I really like to know how well I’m doing…)

    7. That’s a nice game-design-y theme.

      Right of the bat whatever I though of before is useless and need to actually think about it. good choice :-)

    8. icemelt7 says:

      Will you declare a winner ?? If not then its not really a competition.

    9. kingblade says:

      Ummm… I cant this weekend… but can I do it after the 17-18 in two days? when will the entery realy end?

    11. Patacorow says:

      Alright, I’m definitly in!

    12. Elijah says:

      Definitely in. I haven’t done any dev work in so long. Too long, really. It looks like the stars have aligned for this one.

    13. ratboy2713 says:

      I have an idea, I have a map, and I have the start of an engine.

      But will I have a game by Monday? Let’s find out!

    14. Shigor says:

      I’m in… probably, don’t have much time, but this time I have a nice idea and I’ve decided to treat this as game making contest, not “how fast can I reinvent the wheel” programming contest, so I’ll try to put something together in unity

    15. CorruptOne says:

      Just a new guy, but I’ll give it a shot (though I wish I’d started yesterday..)

    16. mildmojo says:

      I’m in, I think. Trying to carve something out in javascript, though I’m not a JS programmer. =)

    17. xXblazingkinXx says:

      I submitted one, but its not showing

    18. cornedor says:

      How much time do we still have xD had a holliday this weekend.

    19. PapiCode says:

      I’m in!

      I’m gonna use stencyl just to try it out. I probably won’t make it if I code and I want to try stencyl so this is cool I guess.

      Anyway I’m gonna start when I get home from school lol.

      Wish me luck ;)

    20. My game didn’t follow the theme strongly enough so I don’t think it would be welcome in the miniLD submissions… but at least I DID make a game in 48hrs last weekend! Perhaps the “horror” of drowning is enough to make it worth a quick play. Silly little html5 + box2d “plinko” game where you are trying to save drowning victims by throwing life preservers to them. How many can you save?

    22. CorruptOne says:

      I can’t come up with anything good, so I guess I’m out for now :/ Better luck next theme, I suppose.

    23. namrog84 says:

      September 25th is last day to submit? or october 25th?

    24. imake says:

      It says: “(Submissions officially close on the 25th, say)”, so last moments to finish (or even start – really this late?) your game and submit. Already checked what others have done and I just want more and more these little horror-snacks >:)

      Also remembet to review (and comment) what other’s have done. Each have some positive twist anyway.

    25. mikemacdee says:

      There are lots of fun entries for this.

      Is there a notification when voting starts? or do we just log in now and then and check if the form is up?

    26. mildmojo says:

      Will there be any closure on the mini-LD? Feels a little like a trek into the desert. =)
