Sorry for the late post!

Some of you have been following my low-key announcements, but it’s time to go public.

We’ll be using ldjam.com for Ludum Dare 38 (i.e. the new website).

I’m on the cusp of pushing out many key features to the new website (posts and comments). That and a slew of other key features (signing up for events, creating teams, editing your teams game, editing user pages, adding gatherings). These features are all directly related, so when the first one finally drops, the rest should become available soon after.

What you can (and should) do right now:

  • Register an account (If you haven’t registered on the new site yet, you need to do this)
  • Login and Suggest Themes

NOTE: We will be migrating the data from this website later. Assuming everything goes according to plan (hehe), that should be around our August event.

What you will be able to do soon:

  • Slaughter Themes (starts Friday)
  • Following users. When you mutually follow each other, you are considered “Friends”
  • Sign up for the event (each team member should make an account)
  • Make teams (you need to be “Friends” to make a team)
  • Edit your Game Submission (Publishing is disabled until the event starts)
  • Edit your User page
  • Make blog posts
  • Make comments! OMG!
  • View the Rules

What is running late, but is still coming:

  • Adding Meetups and Gatherings
  • Uploading images
  • Changing your avatar
  • Improved support for strict office Firewalls
  • Improved security via a standalone login page
  • A logout button 😉
  • Notifications

I do regret I really dropped the ball on Real World Gatherings this time. Gatherings are a native feature of the new site, but until that feature is finished, add the details of your event as a comment here:

//ludumdare.com/…/real-world-gatherings-for-ludum-dare-38-placeholder/

I will temporarily link to this page from the new site, at least until the feature is up and running. If you are an organizer of a gathering, I would recommend that you create an account on the new website.

Real World Gatherings for Ludum Dare 38 (Placeholder)

Hey folks! If you’re the organizer of a gathering, please leave a comment below. Please include:

  • What Country?
  • What City/State/Province
  • Name of where it is (i.e. an office, coffee shop, etc)
  • Any relevant details (i.e. capacity)
  • A link to more information

This post is a placeholder until we launch the gatherings feature on the new website. I would highly recommend you also create an account on https://ldjam.com for when this feature goes live.

Multiplayer takes so much time with a language you’re not familiar with @_@

Introducing… the various archetypes! Soldier, Farmer, and Knight!

Thought I wouldn’t join this time since I needed to work on my commercial VR game. But woke up with itchy fingers today and here we go!
No idea what gameplay to put in to finish before sleep time. THOUGHTS?

No idea what to do with this in 5 hours

As i mentioned before, i am idiot who deleted his main character animations… So, meanwhile i trying to restore deleted files, i started to draw some tilesets. And it looks like i am finished with basic inside and outside enviroments!

And what will be next? Well… I have still 2 hours left until recovering program finishes scanning. So i probably start to creating levels!

Some progress

Here is some screenshots from our game called “NT-virus”. It is a game where you try to defend your computer from different types of viruses. We have made pretty good progress and we believe that we can finish this game before the Jam deadline.

After a good night of sleep, we’re back in business!

Small progress, trying to wire everything for combat: attacks, hits, life points, yadda yadda.

Refining the world a little more:

We’ve cut the planet in 4 quarters that we will duplicate, so the game is less heavy.

Since we’re French, we’ve also allocated some time to go vote this morning, because it’s important!

Next up: gathering food!

I give up, advice?

Nothing is working out, a lot of bugs, unclean code, not enough time to start again and I still have no idea for the game, hopefully next time the theme will be better and this won’t happen.
Advice for the next one?

Day 2 – Press START to begin!

I recently woke up (timezones :D) and it’s time to finish this. I’ll only have

10 hours out of the 15, because i’ll have school tomorrow, and i don’t want to

be tired. Good Luck everybody!
