Eplilogue–The Book of Lives

We made a game called Living Tales, where you write the book of evoloution. It’s a sandbox-like game where you add objects by writing their names; and you see them appear and move around and interact on one page while the story of them is written on the other page.

The Ludum Dare version: Living Tales on Ludum Dare

The Kongregate version: Living Tales on Kongregate

Splash for Living Tales

What went right:

I’m proud of the work i did and i feel like i worked hard and did my best

We had fun! :)

I enjoyed collaborating with kkednekadnez. It was my first collaboration and it was pretty fun

I was able to upload to Kongregate
While i loathe Stencyl, using it DOES mean we could enter the Kongregate contest…and i got all my kongregate freinds to play it!

What went wrong:

Time zones
a 9-hour time difference can be a real pain in the ass when trying to collaborate with someone to make a game…

Stencyl
OMG dont get me started on Stencyl…it wouldnt let us share the file, it made the game lag, it made weird bugs…

Ludum Dare doesn’t allow collaboration credit…
…which means i don’t get to rate any games :(

Not enough time to add all the features we wanted
We were going to have giant mushrooms, dominating slug predators, and a giant pacman that ate everything, and more interactions among the objects that existed

We’re planning to make a post-compo version with a few more features

Toodles! :)
