I’m very excited for this Ludum Dare! I’ll be trying out a new ECS framework for Unity that I’ve been wanted to implement for awhile. Here are the tools I’ll be using:

  • Unity 5
  • Inkscape
  • Audacity
  • Paint.NET
  • MonoDevelop

Good luck to all!

I’m joining in a bit later than usual this time, but I’m as ready as ever to get started.

Good luck all!

I finished just in time!

I managed my time fairly well this time around, focusing on the core mechanics before investing too much time into art or sound. I managed to finish all core mechanics and also have a game play loop that doesn’t involve restarting the game!

Found a clue in the planter!


I had a lot of inspiration from the board game Mystery Mansion. It’s quite old at this point but still worth checking out. The general idea was to provide the player with logic clues to find so they could work out the mystery through process of elimination.

Please check it out and let me know what you think! http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-32/?action=preview&uid=22088

I’m in!

I’ll be using Unity and Inkscape once again. The “Unconventional Weapon” theme could produce some wacky results.

Greetings fellow developers!

Tools: Unity, Inkscape, Paint.NET, GIMP, Audacity

Ludum Dare 28 – Changing things up a bit

This will be my third Ludum Dare weekend, and I’m changing things up a bit.

I’ve had some experience with HTML 5 game dev in the past, so I’m going to see what I can do with it in a jam environment. I would love to do something multiplayer using ajax and a PHP/SQL backend, so we’ll see how the time constraints work out.

I”ll be using HTML5 canvas, JavaScript, CSS, as well as InkScape for art and Audacity for audio editing.

Good luck to all!!

And we’re back!

This will be my second Ludum Dare entry, and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m hoping to perform even better this time around.

I”ll be using GameMaker: Studio 8.0 as my engine, as well as InkScape for art and Audacity for audio editing.

Good luck to all!!

First Ludum Dare

So this is my first time really putting myself out there and challenging myself to become better at game development. I’m very excited! My only goal is to finish, so I’ll probably be keeping it very simple – maybe overly so.

I’ve worked on a few of my own personal projects in the past, but I’ve only ever completed one. Hopefully this competition gives me a chance to see what I’m made of.

Good luck to everyone!


Edit: After reading some of the other posts, I thought it would be a good idea to share more detail about the tools I’m planning on using.

IDE/Engine: Game Maker 8

Music: I have a keyboard hooked up to my PC so I”ll hopefully be doing some simple custom music.

Sound: I recently purchased a snowball microphone, so I’ll be using that to record some sound effects and do some basic editing with Audacity.

Art: Trying out either some hand-drawn art using a tablet (Auto-Sketch) or just drawing basic shapes, depending on how much time I put into the mechanics.
