My first Ludum Dare

I was listening for RugueLike radio about game jams and decided to try it out myself!

I have done small games jams before… but it was long time ago.. and not true. (I was doing it alone… in the basement…)

Some of my previous game jams.

BallDrop prototype v0.000001

Tank – tree destroyer (EXE, flash player 7 projector)

MouseRPG v0.00002


  • Language: ActionScript 3
  • IDE: FlashDevelop
  • Libraries : mvcExpress
  • Graphics: programmers art! (red, blue boxes and circles!)
  • Audio: fatal error… null pointer reference.
  • Food: Whatever my wife will put in front of me…
My goals:
  • try Ludum dare.
  • try mvcExpress in prototyping/rush programming.
  • try to convince my wife to put something edible in front of me… (this might be challenging…)
  • try to convince my kids not to climb on me while I am jamming… (this might be impossible…)


Good luck everyone!

    Yet another first-timer! Great!

    I’m sure that you’ll manage to make great game, and I look forward to playing it! Also, why don’t you try considering your children as an extra challenge on your way to create a game in 48 hrs? 😉

    I wish you good luck for the compo!

    Roguelike radio is what convinced me to try this out as well :)
