Results! :D

I was up till about 2-something AM waiting for results. I was probably one of the first people to see the results. 😛

I think I did okay. I got above average in every category. xD

Made it into the top 100 for Innovation though.

The theme was one of the three I really didn’t want. (Five Minutes, One Room, and Simplicity) I also restarted with only 29 hours left.

I think that my biggest mistake was making a game that takes more than 2 minutes to play. :/ Next time, I’ll make an in-game tutorial. In my first LD, I got 17 fake ratings on my game. (17 less downloads than ratings) This time I timed when I rated games to avoid that, and it worked! 😀 I’m really looking forward to the next LD. Hopefully it’ll have a decent theme and I won’t have to restart. 😛

Check out my game here.


Rating Percentages:

Innovation – Top 8.5%

Theme – Top 28.8%

Fun – Top 29%

Overall – Top 33.7%

Graphics – Top 38.1%

Mood – Top 38.2%

Humor – Top 40.8%

Audio – Top 43.6%

I Restarted :/

Not only did I restart when there were 29 hours left, but I also just went and learned Java for no reason. ._.

Sidenote: When I learned Java, I compared a script for Python and Java that did the exact same thing and the script for Java was well over 2 times longer. XD

Here is a pic of my progress:

Yeah… That’s all I’ve done. ._.


That’s it for today. I’ma go to bed. Have fun! 😀


I’m very loosely using the theme, so I’ll probably have a bad overall score. :3

I just added the ability to have reflectiveness, roughness, tinted tiles, and tinted light. 😀

I plan on entering LD 37! 😀

This will be my 3rd LD. Here are da things I use:


MS Paint



Anything I can find for foley


Here is a lighting engine that I just finished and hope to use for the LD:

This engine uses heightmaps. It creates (specified amount) of copies of the image on the ram based on the heightmap and the main image. This gif uses 100 copies. 100 copies can be generated by my pc in about 1/2 a second.

Since it’s pretty much only rendering tile variants in real time, the heightmaps don’t cause any lag. Also, since it’s pre-loaded, a 20×20 image takes about 500KB of RAM if 100 copies are loaded. If it were 10 copies, I could easily use 1,000+ images.

Artifact Hunter 70% Off For October Challenge!

Posted by

Artifact Hunter is 70% off right now($0.89)! 😀

Artifact Hunter is a bullet hell(but not a shmup) made for Ludum Dare 36 and continued for the October Challenge. You collect artifacts that give you various powers(such as slowing down time or teleportation). You must use artifacts to dodge various types of hazards(you will come across new ones too) while collecting blue orbs to complete the level.

Please note that there are “checkpoints” every 3 levels that you can go to from the title screen.

If you do try the game, make sure you give me some feedback.

Artifact Hunter is FREE!

So… After 2 days and no purchases, even with a 70% off sale, I decided to make the game free for a week. 😀

Hopefully that will help me get more money later. Because I’m nowhere near my $48 goal for the October Challenge.

Please leave a comment though. Because I haven’t had any feedback yet. D:

Just scroll down a few posts to see some GIFs of the game, because there has only been 1 post in the last 30 hours or something.


Artifact Hunter Released! :D

Sunday, October 16th, 2016 7:54 am

Artifact Hunter was originally made in Ludum Dare 36. I was already planning on continuing and selling it. Then I found out about the October Challenge and I finished it up for that. 😀

You play a character who is searching an old temple for artifacts, however, you find something unexpected at the end…

In Artifact Hunter you collect artifacts that give you special powers(like speed boosts or slowing down time)! The gameplay is level based with “checkpoints” and new stuff every now and then. One of the unique things about Artifact Hunter, is that you have to figure out what different artifacts do. You must also figure out various ways to make use of multiple artifacts at once. Another thing you must figure out, is how the various hazards work!

This game is USB controller compatible!

I’ve been working on Artifact Hunter for a while(it’s basically my version of a bullet hell). I was actually planning about selling it before I heard about the October Challenge. I’ve been working on a ton of new things including multiplayer!

Here is a gif:

I was specifically showing off the new slowing artifact and ROCKS. :3

I’m still aiming for $2.99! I actually have plans for a storyline too…

If you are interested, please leave a comment on this post(because I love to read them all)!

Artifact Hunter is Being Overhauled!

I’ve been overhauling pretty much everything in Artifact Hunter and updating it enough so that I will be able to sell it. I’ve only done 2 updates, but just from this gif, you can see that I’ve made a lot of progress. 😀


I’m expecting to sell it within two months or so. 😛

I’ve been getting a lot of people that like my LD entry. 😀

But after tons of people playing it, ZERO people have beaten the 3rd level(I haven’t either)! If you are looking for a challenge please check out my game. 😀

Make sure you comment which level you got to and with how many points!

Play and comment here:

Here is a random video of me getting fairly far in it:

I finished my entry: Artifact Hunter!

I really want to see if anyone can even beat it. The game is really hard.

Comment what happens when you beat the 3rd level(as proof) if you beat it! 😀

I Still Can’t Beat My Game… XD

Saturday, August 27th, 2016 8:59 pm

I’ve spent a good 5 hours of the time trying to beat the game.

I still haven’t.

There are 3 levels.

I got 4/12 points on the 3rd level TWICE! ._.


Doesn’t look hard from the picture? Here’s an earlier video(I cheated in this video, I’m trying to beat it without cheating):

Since this is a bullet hell… I had to make it REALLY HARD! 😀

It also makes the player feel really awesome.

I added 2 artifacts with their own powers:

-Feather(NEW): Speed boost that uses stamina

-Tooth(NEW): Charges stamina 61.5% higher than normal, but halts movement

There are currently 3 things that can kill you:

-Bombs: Fall from the ceiling in all levels

-Bullets: Shoot from the side in levels 2-3

-Shurikens(NEW): Shurikens come from bottom and will chase you.

In this video, I cheated and skipped the first 2 levels, but I kept dying on the 3rd because I haven’t practiced. XD

I was going to make a 3rd artifact, but I decided to leave that until Post-LD and just make 3 levels for the LD.

(yes, 3 is enough levels)

All I have left is the title screen, a few sound effects, visual effects, and music. 😀
