My take on the mascot

I liked aeveis’s mascot suggestions, so I animated one up!

ld_anim

 

I like this design because:

The body is a cube/pixel/’place holder square’ which encompasses the game-iness and prototype-y nature of Ludum Dare
The sprout represents creation, and the feeling mystery (what’s it going to be?) and potential awesomeness that you get when starting a Ludum Dare game

And the sprout growing out of the cube is exactly what Ludum Dare is on about! Making awesome games from limited, often rough resources!

Whatever we go with, I hope it has some of those aspects to it :​​​)

(I wrote this same thing with 5 times as many words and 7 times as many emotions here)
