Ludum Dare 36 – A Few Words

August 31st, 2016 1:00 am

“A Guillotine” was the game I made for LD36
You can play it here

I’d call it a text-exploration pseudo-game. “Pseudo-game” because despite its game-like nature it’s actually very hard to call it a game. So it’s a game, but it’s also not a game – It’s a pseudo-game.
I’m not sure how I feel about it. This is the third time I do a Ludum Dare, my first two games were not conventional as well, to say the least. This one feels weird even to me, however. It’s absolutely disturbing. I was in a strange headspace when I made it, and it works as a self-portrait of sorts. But now, looking back at it, I feel like a different person, and I don’t like the discomfort it causes me. Through it I have a window into myself that I don’t have most of the time, and that I don’t necessarily enjoy.
So here you go, it’s a weird game made by a weird person that now also feels weird playing it.

Here’s a video as well (the actual game doesn’t have sound):
