I be in!

My first Ludum Dare!

I’ve been in the last couple of MiniLDs as a warm up.

Tools? Don’t know… whatever seems appropriate, whatever gets the job done… although the game itself will probably be coded in AS3; I’ve been on AS2 for a while now, and I’m only just getting into AS3.

Good luck! Have fun!


Polishing the fish

Well, I better get a move on with MiniLD#25,hmmm… ┬ábut I think I have an idea to go with now… it’s a tough assignment!

I reckon I’ve finished with “fishslap”, my first Ludumite game, for MiniLD#24. All Ludumite peoples are welcome to download the completed version (with special extras, 5 games modes, high scores) from here:


this is a windows installable file.



So much fish

fishbrain (alias “fishcake games”) presents “fishslap” (for MiniLD#24)… yes, it’s all rather “fishy”

I had great fun developing this, and found it quite addictive during play testing.

I’m new to LD, and this is my first LD entry. It’s always interesting how games evolve, and develop organically. There is beautiful feedback between the idea and the actual implementation of the idea – each changes the other.

…I’m keen on seeing all the MiniLD entries!
