Hello Luddites!

Going to make a game this weekend! Haven’t made anything for the past two LDs so I’m super keen to finish this time!

I’m either going to use Flashpunk / FlashDevelop or Unity, I haven’t decided yet.


I’m in!

Hello Ludum Darers! I am in for the Ludum Dare 32!

I will probably be using Flashpunk 😛

I’m In!

Howdy peeps! I’m in for yet another Ludum Dare! Bring it on!

I’m hoping to do something with the Jam Assets, so this will be the first time I have done something for the Jam instead of the compo, though I think I will still enter after two days 😛

I will be using Flash!

Yo peeps!

I am in for another exciting Ludum Dare! I have a bit of a cold but I think I should be able to pull through 😛

Most likely using flash, but I haven’t quite decided yet 😀

End of Day 1 Progress

It’s a little late, but here’s my progress report from the end of day 1 –

I spent a lot of time making a cool slow-mo zoom kill cam, and fun movement control with the mouse –

I am hoping by the end of the jam (10 hours from now) I will have objectives and fun AI opponents :)

I’m in!

Hello Ludum Dare,

I am in! I will be using Flashpunk and Flashdevelop.

The beginning thoughts I have for my game are control schemes that use both the keyboard and mouse together in unison.

Good luck to everyone!


I am the IN

Howdy peeps!

I am creating a post to declare myself officially IN! Good work Dezzles providing the keynote <3

I will be using Flashdevelop/Flashpunk, as I have done for nearly all my LD entries. Good luck peeps!

Hey guys!

I wanted to see what you guys think of a little game I have been working on: Solar Quest!

Solar Quest

It’s a little 3D space monopoly game based on the board game of the same name. Get it here!

Windows Installer

Let me know what you think! :)

Your Opinions!

Hey guys!

I am massively pleased with the outcome of this Ludum Dare! There are some great entries, and I was fortunate enough to be mentioned on a few sites:

Rock Paper Shotgun


But I want to poll you guys for your opinion. What should I do next?

The way I see it I have 3 choices:

1) Turn the game into a full game. Take the ideas from the LD, and work on them until I have a full polished game, in the same way that World of Goo was developed from Tower of Goo.

2) Add “DLC”. Make more levels, more content, and put it up on the site so players can get more out of the game, as I realise it is easy and short at the moment 😛

3) Screw it all and work on something else.

Let me know what you guys think!


Game Finished! Submitted! Go Play!

I can look forward to seeing other people’s entries now hehe.

Well, the competition is quarter way through already. Time flies when you are having fun! ^___^

Having a lot of fun playing around with Flashpunk, got plenty of ideas to work with, so it’s all good!

Without further delay, my first screenshot!


As you can see, the game has lasers. The rest, is a secret! 😛

See you at the half way point!


Ludum Dare 20 Woooo!

So here it is, the 20th Ludum Dare. Do I have any idea what kind of game I am going to make? No.

Will that stop me? HELL NO! 😀




And so that people actually see this post instead of skimming past it, have a picture of my cat :3

Hello LD :)

I just wanted to spend a moment to shamelessly ask you to try out one of my first finished projects, a small game named FatCat:

FatCat Screenshot

Download Here

It’s free and it’s made by myself and a few artist friends, so check it out if you have time and give me some feedback! I would love to hear some opinions on it :)


All finished!

Half Way Update!

Today I’m bringing you an update on my latest creation for LD19, a currently unnamed game!

It’s damn difficult to get a screenshot of the game in action, as most of the action takes place in the darkness:

my game

I’m very pleased with my progress so far, as I have been extremely ill all day today and will probably be ill tomorrow as well, but I was ill last LD so damn it this time I’m finishing a game!
