Submitted my Jam entry. Its a fairly basic game and so far its only has a Linux build, so not expecting many votes ūüėõ

This LD my main goal was to move my tech forward and see if I could successfully use it for the Jam, for the most part I am pretty happy with the resulting progress. Though the game is very basic, creating it has proved out a bunch of stuff with my work-flow and has driven the fixing of a bunch of bugs and building missing features. Game jams are a great way to push development and have a lot of fun at the same time!



Good luck to everyone still working, and congratulation to PoV and the team on another successfully Ludum Dare!

Despite some initial malfunctions with my tech, things are moving forward :) It would appear I’m turning space invaders into some sort of platformer.

I’m in for the Jam, bit of a late start but then its actually fairly early here. Im using the Jam as an opportunity to drive my own tech development forward but will actually be working solo. Anyway, good luck all!

I’m using (Jam):

  • Linux
  • Kdevelop
  • My own engine (C++, Lua)
  • GIMP
  • sfxr
