Well this was unexpected
This is my first completed Ludum Dare jam and this time I did the incredible choice of teaming up with some friends.
Me and Samuel (Blixt Gordon here on Ludum Dare)worked tirelessly on the game for the first two days on the game Surf Ace. I have heard that finishing a Ludum Dare
game was something really hard and that we should keep the ideas streamlined and simple. F**k that we thought lets to a game where
you can not only surf and flip (which to be honest, would have been awesome!) but also catch fish on a spear and then ride it.

I had my hesitations about the completion of this game up until the last day when one of our friends came to record the hilarious sound effects and another friend
helped out on the fiddle to create the track for the game. This all took place in the last 5 hours so you can understand my concern.
The last hours was by far the best part of the development when we had the game ready and just played around with the details.
That is, right until we figured out there is no tutorial to our game and the controls are unique to our game so it was a must.
As you probably have figured out by now it went splendid, we got a good game out of it and most important. We had an awesome time making it!
If you have read until now, here is a potato for the long post (had a lot to say I guess).
