No no! The theme isn’t Slaughter. We’re having a slaughter!

It’s like hot-or-not for Ludum Dare themes. Click the graphic above, and keep clicking until you can click no more! Every click helps, so click more and click often!

Special thanks again to Sorceress for preparing the theme list for me.

This is going to be fun!

It’s my… Sixth? I think… Ludum Dare for me. Holy shit.

I’m still bitter about wasting the last ludum dare, I loved the theme and yet I wasn’t able to complete anything. Shit sucks. Oh well, hopefully this time around I will be able to make something playable.

Check out my past LD games if you want!

———-

Tools:

JS as language and HTML5 as framework if I go for a game

RenPy if I go for a visual novel

Emacs as editor

Paint.net/Krita/MyPaint/Inkscape for graphics, depending if I go for pixel art, traditional or vector

jfxr and Audacity for music/sounds

———-

Hopefully I won’t get much sleep and have tons of fun! See you in 9 days.

 

How do i make background music?

I’d love to be in this LD but it’s really bad timing for me, but I am in a game making class at the moment and i’m having a real issue finding non-copyrighted music to use for a project. I’d be happy to make it, but I have about 0 experience making music.

Could someone suggest a quick and easy app for making generic placeholder music for a game? That’s really all I need for this.

hi, i’m in.

This time around, i haven’t decided yet, i’m either using:

ENGINE:

Flashpunk/as3, with flashdevelop and air/sdk. -Chevy Ray is responsible for flashpunk! thanks Chevy! (good luck with your unity stuff)

SOUND:

audacity, sounds by (me)!

IMAGES:

paint.net is still my favorite pixel editor.

CODEXUS:

tile editor by tyler moltz. Thanks tyler!

preloader/button(if i need it) by noel berry. gl noel!

NOTES:

notepad++;using chronolapse for timelapse; If you have interest in me streaming, ask. :-) i will definitely timelapse. :D

or:

ENGINE and IDE:

c++/sdl2/visualstudio2013express

SOUND:

audacity, sounds by (me)!

IMAGES:

paint.net is still my favorite pixel editor.

CODEXUS:

if this is the route i take i’ll be using the libraries extensions, mixer, image, ttf, foo.productions tile editor, and other bits from his tuts. I’m brand new at c++ so, not sure yet on this.

NOTES:

notepad++;using chronolapse for timelapse; If you have interest in me streaming, ask. :-) i will definitely timelapse. :D

I made this for LD31!

I’m in (for school?) (repost)

(This is a repost, because I absolutely need to find another programmer and because the first post wasn’t clear enough I suppose)

I’m in for Ludum Dare 31, for school purposes!

I must participate in the jam competition so I must find a programmer with a lot of experience in game programming (it’s for an internship).

My school project is really simple. Well, my teacher wanted us to explore the job we want to do later, since I want to be game programmer, and there was no game companies in Montreal that would offer an internship for one day, I decided to do the Ludum Dare, and she let me do the Ludum Dare, as long as I find another programmer which has more experience than me. For my experience with programming, I’ve been doing it for 1 year and a half, it’s not much, but I learn fast. This would be my third Ludum Dare, So yeah. The language that I’m the most comfortable with is JavaScript, so that’s why I would do this one with the Phaser game framework, but for this one I want to try something new. I’m gonna try to do it in TypeScript or with Unity, depending on theme, or I will program in the language the programmer uses. So yeah, I hope I will find a programmer, and if you are not a programmer, you are still welcome :)


 

Here are the tools that I will be using:


I’m also thinking about streaming and/or making a timelapse for my YouTube channel :)


 

I hope I’ll find another programmer because this is really important for my school project!

Otherwise, if you are interested in participating in my team, feel free to comment this post, I’ll give you a way to contact me via Skype or something else.  :)

 

Good luck to everyone participating :D

Saw that people were making wallpapers again so I thought I’d make one. It’s pretty simple but not half bad.

I was quite happy to have finished a game last LD, and on top of that even placed very close to the top 100. I’d like to go again and this time I’m going to get top 100!

With that said I’m looking for another art buddy to jam with me this time around. If you’re interested in tackling this with me then hit me up here or on Twitter @deadpxlsociety!

If I don’t get any bites I’ll still try it on my own, but I don’t have much hope for that.

 

Cacodemon: A Post Comp LD Game

16 hours ago | November 25th, 2014 3:30 pm

Hi Everyone,

I just finished “fixing up” my LD#27 Game. The theme (for those that don’t remember over a year ago) was 10 Seconds. I really wanted to flesh my game out with a bunch of levels and bosses, but it took a lot longer than I expected! Check it out!

It is now available on Google Play. Let me know what you think!

Exhausted, happy and maybe IN

Ah, only 10 days till next LD.

indiesvspewdiepie could have been nice warm up, but instead we ended up working crazy whole 72h. I am not sure if we can do that again so soon.

We = Me (Code/Design) and Krista (Art/Animation)

Also here’s a gif of what we got done. (I am posting this everywhere now. I’m feeling so proud. Our best Jam entry by far!)

This is my first LD, also the first time I try to make and finish a game, so I’ll participate in the jam.

 

Graphics: InkScape

Sound: I’ll try to  record stuff I have lying around for the sound effects, also would love to make some music, but I’m not sure I’ll have the time.

Programming: Javascript/HTML5 (Phaser)

I am IN!
