Screen

 Around 3 months ago I visited ludumdare.com for the first time, I was immediately hooked and decided that I must enter in LD27.  In July I entered in my first game making competition, 7dRTS. Somehow I managed to write a game in PHP (a language that I barely knew) which placed 4th in Humor, even though it wasn’t even that funny!

FTW

My 7dRTS game, which is called SyncMind was a great learning experience for me and also a lot of fun for me to code.

Anyway a few weeks later I discovered 7dFPS which I proceded to enter in a game called Challenger 34502 which was a puzzle FPS with  platformer elements in it. I made the game in Unity, wrote it in UnityScript, made the art in Paint.Net and models in Blender.

Challenger 34502 can be played here

 

Wrath Of The Decem:

Kitten

After the theme (10 seconds) was announced I went to bed and slept for 8 hours, then in the morning when I got up I took the dog for a hour long walk. For the rest of the day I worked on my game,  finishing levels 1 through 4. I slept for about 9 hours, then realized LD27 was still on and jumped out of bed and finished the game.

What Went Well:

Windows 7: My computer held up fine, no crashes or lost data.

Kitten: My kitten model actually looks like a kitten

Almost Everything Else: Everything was fine, no bugs that took more than 15 minutes to fix or (severe) file loss.

What Didn’t go Well:

Timer: The giant timer in the corner of the screen had a Unity crashing bug that took 15 minutes to fix.

Windows 7: WHY U USE SO MUCH RAM!

Time Lapse: The order of images got messed up so the timelapse is rather weird.

Gameplay Video: Camstudio Recorder lagged like heck during the recording of my gameplay video.

 

Time Lapse:
