Going to make a start now

Thanks to Skyim (only got it yesterday) I’m only just making a start on my entry.

I’m thinking of doing a top down shooter where the player is the only one of his kind alive (that’s the alone aspect), not very original, but I’m running out of time.

I might be in.

Hey all,


Before I would be certain about whether I’m doing a Ludum Dare or  not.

This time however, I’m not so sure. It really depends on the theme as I’ve not been a fan of the recent ones.

Anywho, if I do it, I will be using:

XNA 4.0

This is my third Ludum Dare and I’ll be using either:

. Java JApplet

. Netbeans 7.0




. C# XNA 4.0

. Visual Studio 2010 professional edition


And all the graphics will be made using Paint.NET


Good luck with the entries, guys.

Deploying Java game help

Saturday, May 28th, 2011 11:01 am

I’m making my entry in Java (as I stated in a previous post), but I don’t know how to deploy my game so that you guys can download it.

I’m using Eclipse as my IDE and pure Java only, no external frameworks.

Any ideas on the best way to deploy my game?

Thanks for any help :)

I’m in

This will be my first mini LD :)

I’ve done LD19 & 20 so I’m not completely new here.

I’m not 100% sure what I will be using yet, either XNA 3.1 or Java Swing.

It depends on the theme really, I’ve only been teaching myself Java for a few days so if I can’t think up a simple game that matches the theme, then XNA it is.

I’ve discovered a way to allow users to play an xna game without needing to install anything (as that was  a major complaint of my last two entries). So I will be using most of sunday trying to get this to work (assuming I use XNA).

But yeah, I’m in 😀

Good luck to my fellow classmate also participating (vooodooo).

Game submitted :D

I’ve just submitted my entry early like last time.

I finished it sooo much quicker than I anticipated, next time I will be more ambitious with my entry as I didn’t realise how much I’ve improved since LD #19 :)


Another XNA guy is in

This is my second ludum dare now, and I’m definitely a lot more prepared this time.

The last one I did, I only had a few hours of the first day spare to participate. This time though, I will have to entire weekend :)

What I’ll be using:

Visual studio 2010 professional editiion.

XNA 4.0 framework.



If any other XNA’ers out there are doing a stream this weekend, link me please :)

Just out of curiousity

Did anyone else make their game in XNA?

I see alot of Unity and Java games but not XNA.

Noob needing help with uploading files to mediafire

I’ve made my game in XNA and was recommended to upload  to mediafire but I don’t understand how or what to upload specifically.

I tried uploading the .exe but when I downloaded it and ran it,  it didn’t work.

Anyone know how I can upload my game properly?

Thanks in advance :)

I don’t have a site to upload my files to :(

As the title suggests, I won’t be able to submit my game unless there’s another way to upload our files.

Any ideas?

The game idea

I’ve drawn the sprites and written some extremely messy code, so I’m going to take a break now. But before I do, I thought I’d blog about what I hope my game will turn into.

It’s a 2D puzzle game inspired by Zelda: Twilight Princess’ ice block puzzle, but with a time limit to keep things interesting :)

I will be using C# to create it and it’s been going well until I got hit with a problem with the drawing of my sprites. Hopefully this will be fixed before tomorrow so I  can work on the physics.

My first ludum dare begins…..late

Not having the best start to my first ludum dare, the snow seems to be affecting the power in my flat. And when the power came back on, I had to do the thing I’m terrible at….using 2D graphics software.

But I’ve done that now, well I drew a stick man and some boxes. But all is okay as my stick man has a cowboy hat.

Anyways I better open my C# IDE and see if I can make a playable game in the little time I have left 😀

Happy coding people!
