It’s the 15th anniversary of Ludum Dare, and our 15th Ludum Dare in a row… coincidence? Yes.
But anyway we’re in for the jam! I’m away until Monday, so will be handing the programming over to @AdamD this time, and I will spend the last day writing music and making sound effects. As usual art will come from @Failedstarfish.

As we’ll have slightly reduced time over the weekend, the plan was to go for something simple. We’re going to do a game that involves small planets, which we know everyone else is doing too, we don’t mind too much this time around. We’re going to try and differentiate it a bit with our art style, and make it a more art/animation based focused on exploration.

You will travel between different colourful solar systems and each planet will have something like an animation/puzzle to play with and explore. The aim is to find a small world you can call your own, we’re going for a peaceful, colourful vibe like our previous entries From the Sea and Miyu.

Some very vague mock-ups to start with, first we have the solar system view


Which will drill down into the system view

And finally the planet view.



Good luck everyone!
