I'm a mildly incompetent person that has nothing better to do than make a java game for this. It'll be rubbish, the graphics will be... "programmer tier" and don't expect much, but I'll try anyways.

This time I’m gonna have to figure out how to balance a full-time job *and* LD.

I’m sure I’ll manage :)

Let’s hope for a good theme!

Once more unto the breach – I am most certainly in

I thought “hm I wonder when the next ludum dare is”

I looked and it was tomorrow.

Half way, double the trump

So, here’s my weird take on the theme. Grow Trump Inc’s stranglehold on the Button market into an empire, run for president and build that mexican wall!

Presidential Campaign

Just under 24hrs to go and more trump to stump!

Here we go again!

This will be my 3rd attempt at this, let’s hope all that will come to make me actually competent.

I’ll be using

PhaserJS as my engine

WebStorm IDE

Aseprite for “Art”

LMMS for “music”

Probably SFXR f0r sound effects


let’s do this!

Using filler graphics, going to GameBoy style graphics once the mechanics are nailed down.


  1. Get game states running,
  2. Render the menu and transition to game state
  3. Add interaction
  4. Add “enemies”
  5. Collision detecting
  6. “COMIC SANS” pickups
  7. Score
  8. Graphics
  9. Persistent high scores
  10. Moar?

As a babby coder, I don’t reckon it’ll be any good, but I’m working on a single button bullet hell with 3 bit colour depth… it’s only just got to graphics-level, so here you go:


I’m in.
