LD 27 – My experience

August 27th, 2013 2:24 pm


Ludum Dare 27 was my third one and I must say that it was  may best LD so far.

I woke up at 7.00 am.  LD was in progress allready for  4 hours in that time ( I live in GMT +1  – Slovak Republic)  so I just picked up paper with my ideas for almost every theme from final round and found “10 seconds” . There were some keywords like bomb, slowmotion, exlposion next to it. I put it together in my mind and I knew what my game will be about.
At the end of the first day 90% of game mechanics, menu screen and environment for levels were completed. I went to bed around 1:00 am. of the next day.When I woke up around 7:00 am. I stared to work on sound effects. It was the first time I used my own voice so it was really funny. Then I came up with the idea to use a sound of clicking pen as a sound of “clicking button”  …and it was amazing. Then I grabbed my guitar and crated the intro music. Everything was going perfectly!  I had a little issues with level creation. Some stuff just did not want to work properly but after 2 hours I fixed it. I finished the last level at 2:30 am.  (3:00 was the deadline  in my time zone). I made the finishing touches, put together the timelapse and went to bed.

What I enjoyed the most?  That feeling when people started to post comments under my entry and they liked my game :)
See ya in 4 months!
