I’m in! This will be my 4th Ludum Dare (also, in a row). I finally finished my first LD with LD37 so I’m hoping to continue that trend!

Using GameMakerStudio 2 again, w/Aseprite.

Not sure what for Audio, but I don’t generally get that far 😉

I actually was able to finish my LDJAM entry on time: Andi’s Moving Company!


ld37 - post - demoshorterrrr


In a rush at the end, I threw in the simplistic UI and Time Limit so the game hardly got balanced. I’ve also since been working on some significant control improvements as a result of all the wonderful feedback I’ve gotten!

Check out my entry here!

Also.. a brief post-mortem of it here!


I had an awesome time this time around, and it’s been so much fun trying and rating other people’s games. Can’t wait til the next one!!!

Day 2 Progress – Everything SPINS

I made a bunch of spinning things, but really was just making sure I’d be able to produce the assets I need in time if I was going to move forward with this. Basically, I went from ugly top down:

ld37 - day 1 - spinning


To more of a 3/4ths perspective view:



It’s a lot prettier, but now I can’t rotate things automatically, and have to hand draw ’em. This is how it’s looking now though, and I’m pretty ok with it:

Still going strong for a bit (haven’t run out of ill-advised coffee) and am pretty pleased with my idea and progress so far…


ld37 - day 1 - first shot


Basically, you’ve gotten get all of the furniture out of the ONE ROOM house and onto a moving truck. It’ll work by sending little mover men to carry the furniture, but they’ll serve as the pivots for rotating the pieces as they move.

It’s a puzzle to try to squeeze everything out of the house within a time limit.

I’m using GameMakerStudio 2 for this one. I’m not a previous GameMaker user, no 1.4 experience, but after learning GMS2 over the past week I kinda fell in love.

For art, I’m using my beloved Aseprite. 

Also, been streaming, but done with that pressure for the night.

I’m in!

This will be my 3rd LD (3rd time’s a charm)… this time I plan on finishing the compo in time!

First time I used Unity, second time I used LÖVE, this time I think I’ll give GameMakerStudio 2 a shot.

Didn’t make it…

Much closer than the last time I attempted this, so I’m much happier with my 2nd LD Compo experience. I do really like my VCR Repair Shop game though and plan to continue working on it through the night. Perhaps I’ll still enter it into the jam tomorrow!

Final Stretch

I hope everyone else has been having some success… just woke up over here and am ready for my final 12ish hour stretch! Hoping I can get some basic broken VCR gameplay working today.

Good luck everyone!

One down.. three to go. Though I’ll skip the others until after LD36 😉 Progress is quite pleasing so far! We’ll be repairing broken VCRs in no time.

About to break for food, but figured I’d post another inprogress shot of PressPlay… VCR Repair Shop sim.

And that ends the first night for me…



Have an idea this time!

Feel much, much more confident with my idea this time… slightly sarcastic with the theme and setting the player as a VCR Repair Shop owner. VCR Repair puzzly gameplay… cause VCRs are ancient, aren’t they?

Alright, alright… you’re right they’re not. We’ll go with Betamax repair instead.

I’ve been streaming the dev, drop in and say hi: http://www.twitch.tv/babyjeans/

Made a last second decision to enter, but I’m in for my 2nd Ludum Dare! This time I’ll be using Love2D w/aseprite and most likely chiptone or bfxr.
