Hey LD, I’d like to share my moment of happiness / minor success story.
Clone Wolf began as my LD20 entry. Thanks to October Challenge 2011, I was able to develop it into a full game and release it on Desura, Indievania and Indiecity. Being the first game I was able to finish and release for purchase, it has been a kind of a personal milestone.
And now, thanks to awesome guys from IUPBundle.org, Clone Wolf has been featured in IUP bundle. The bundle has launched a few days ago, you can get 5 indie games ( Tesla: The Weather Man, Drains, Ichi, Clone Wolf, 48 chambers ) for $3.99 (including some bonus materials) – get it here.
So, Ludum Dare, thanks again for giving me the right kick to start developing games and introducing me to this awesomely crazy bunch of people who all the LD participants are!
