The theme ‘Tiny World’ caught me off guard. I had spent some time looking over the possible theme winners and writing down some preliminary game ideas. I thought that Tiny World was unlikely to win (and I couldn’t think of anything) so I skipped that.
Anyway, when the theme was announced I was slightly shocked. I got started straight away and spent about 45mins brainstorming possible ideas before settling on one and making a small game concept. 5 and a bit hours later, and I have some progress.
The game is going to be about a couple of bacteria who are bored of their current asteroid, and decide to populate and control the universe while migrating from planet to planet. I won’t spoil too much yet.
Good luck to everybody else in Ludum Dare 23!
