Hey Ludum darer’s

Due to a busy weekend and only getting to know that LD is this weekend at tueseday I’ll be in but mainly to practice new things :)


I’m going to be using Javascript / php (if I’m doing some multiplayer turnbased stuff or something?) and as little as posible libaries, to practice. this means it’ll probarly be a canvas game or text-based (with maybe some images or so, but I’m awful at art :))


I’ll be using:

Code: HTML, CSS, Javascript or PHP (Most likely javascript, I dislike PHP but it’s something I have to do for school).
Art: If I’m doing any, gimp, maybe some paint.net. OOHH If any graphic desingy people would like to do a JAM with me, that would be a cool experience :D! (Just comment if you’re interested and we can get in touch, I guess :D)Sound: Nothing planned, if I will I’ll probarly use www.bfxr.net.
Music:  Again, nothing planned. Maybe I’ll do some guitar stuffs and use the fruity loops demo a bit.
Bever-rage: Coffee! Maybe some monster energy too :)
Code-Editor: Sublime Text 3 (EMMET, Colorpicker and some self-made templates)


If nobody wants to do artsy stuff/programming with me, I’ll go enter the compo, if someone feel like doing  it with me, I’ll be in and we can jam together <3 (Ohh, great sentence…)



Everybody have a lot of fun, learn some stuff, make great games!
I can’t wait to create my game and play your games!

Hey people!

I might be in for a single day Ludum Dare! It’ll mainly be some practice :). It’s my third time I’ll enter and it’ll hopefully be the second time I’ll finish!


my warmup weekend thingy

So, I thought I’d make a simple logo and intro for me, so I did it the hard way, program yourself a logo and intro.
Why? It’s fun and good learning, the outcome might be a “little” worse than it’d be if I just did it the normal way. But now I learnt new things, practised my programming, had fun, and have become even more proud of myself =). Also, it might be slower than just a video/pictures (not sure), but it shouldn’t impact performance too much.

And the intro. <– link to youtube.

The quality in the video is bad, there’s a weird bar, and one of the sounds are missing. This is only in the video though, the real intro (ingame) won’t be like that :)


I used:

Sounds: bfxr(for the “pling”), audacity and a stick (for the sweeping).
Art: all programming (gamemaker, since I’ll be making LD with that too, it’s nice and fast).

It took me about 4 hours to figure out everything.

I highly reccomend programming art for fun and learning! Intro’s are fun too ;).





Edit: eddited a part of the things I used (unfinished sentence)

This will be my 2nd time attempting LD, last time (LD #29), I had gotten sick to the point of me laying in bed for 4 weeks.


I’ll be using:

Engine: Gamemaker, I’m quite new to game-dev, so I’ll use game-maker ;), fast and powerfull.
Programming-language: GML (Gamemaker language).
Sound: sfxr.
Music: If I get to it, FL Studio or something.
Graphics: Gimp/Paint.net
Vitamines: Loads, so I won’t be sick, AGAIN.


Have fun all, good luck. And make some games!

Too sick to work any more on my LD Game.

Hey people, I just wanted to say, I’m sadly too sick to go any further, I’ve been puking, this time over my own desk.

Have a lot of fun, and may you complete your game! :)



First Ludum Dare Expectations!

Hey guys, I thought I’d do a before and after thingy, so here are my expectations for my very first Ludum Dare!
By the way, this isn’t my “I’m in post”, that can be found here : http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/2014/04/14/myveryfirstld/

So, here’s some info and expectations.

  • I’ve been sick the past week, feeling a little better today, let’s hope it won’t influence my performance too much!
  • I’m guessing I won’t get high in the rankings, but who knows!
  • I’m planning to make a 2d game, either topdown or sideview. It might even turn out to be a puzzle game type of thing.
  • I do think I’ll get to finish it. I’m going to start small and work my way out from there, hoping to make it not too big in the beginning =D.
  • Graphics and sound won’t be so good (coding probarly too :P), but I’ll try my best!
  • I’m not sure about sleep yet, probarly will end up in loads of coffee :).
  • I’m going to watch some live streams while making my game.
  • If I ever get writers-block or programming-block, I’m going to take a walk! Look: (http://blog.bufferapp.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/brain.png).


So yeah! Hoping for the best! Give me some tips if you feel like it, always good to have!


Best of luck to YOU!


My very first Ludum Dare! :)

Hi there!

It seems to be what a lot of people do, write here what programmes they are going to use, so here I go.
I’m an unexperienced game-developer, I’ve learned some Java and Gml (gamemaker language), I’m going to use gamemaker, it’s the language/engine/programme I’ve got  the most experience in and it’ll probarly be the fastest way for me to work! :). I’m really pumped to do this, hoping it’ll improve my skills in general and make better games too :).

Btw! I’d love some tips on working in short time and just game development in general! :)

What I’ll use:

  • Language/Game-Engine: Gamemaker studio.
  • “Art”(I’m crap at it :3): Gimp and/or Paint.net and a little bit of gamemaker’s sprite editor.
  • Sound: SFXR.
  • Music (If I get the time): FL-studio.


Good luck to all! Mainly the other first-timers! :)
