Outta time! (A sad panda face)

Oops, as a result of poor planning combined with some real life things (grandmother’s birthday, taking the bus to another city to visit fambly, etc) I will not be finishing on time. :(

Anyways, if you’re curious to see how far I got with RACING FEVER, check out this page:

I totally intend to keep working on it. As you tell, there is no way to actually complete a race. Also, the computer-controller cars are morons. :)
Some friends on IRC also pointed out that the garage menu controls should be a little more responsive too.

Anyways, good luck to everyone else involved! :D:D

As always, I’ve started to get a little frustrated with the physics side of things, so I decided to take some time and make some decent looking GUI stuff. Here’s my first screenshot!

Hello everyone!

I was hanging out on IRC with some pals when Bleck, DrPetter, and I decided to have a fun little “microLD”, where normal LD rules apply, but you get only 6 hours to develop your game. It’s quite flexible in that you can choose which 6 hours you want to use. (Hooray for the honor system)

There is an added twist that I announced the theme at least a day before everyone started, so you got to think about what you wanted to make.

The theme is/was ‘Utopia’.

Here are the final entries: (From what I’ve heard, I’m still waiting on entries from philhassey and mjau)

Bleck – Snowtopia –  http://www.omnisu.com/files/snowtopia.zip
DrPetter – Utopia – http://www.cyd.liu.se/~tompe573/drpetter_utopia.zip
Fydo – Paradise Gone – http://fydo.net/programming/ParadiseGone-fydo-microLD1.zip

I certainly had a lot of fun making my entry. I had about 2 hours to kill on a busride a few hours before I started developing the game, so I planned it all out on paper. It worked out surprisingly well, in my opinion. Post your comments! 😀

And of course, it’s not too late to participate. Since this isn’t really an official compo by any means, feel free to set aside 6 hours of your choice to make a game and put a link in the comments. Hooray!

Here’s a timelapse! If it doesn’t show up, it might still be processing on YouTube.

miniPals is a minimalistic co-operative platformer. It features 7 levels of fun! 2nd player requires a joystick (sorry team)

Keep in mind that even though this is a co-op platformer, you can still enjoy it by yourself!


z – use power

x – switch player (1P mode only)

left & right arrows – move

check the README.txt for more information!

LD 10.5 – Kittay

Here is my entry. It’s basically a cross between robotfindskitten and a generic platformer.

DOWNLOAD: http://kittay.ca/kittay-fydo-LD105.zip (1.0 mb)

Written in C, uses OpenGL. Didn’t have time to make a linux binary, sorry team.

I’m planning on doing a post-compo version, with bugfixes and better level graphics. Also, I’ll incorporate the other 3 mini-songs that I recorded, too. 😉


EDIT: Note that I’ve created a launchpad project for kittay. So you can file bugs there! Yay!

Since the music to my game, Space Reactions, has become a little bit popular, I figured I’d tab it out for any fellow guitar players here. I haven’t got a guitar in front of me right now, but I think this is pretty accurate. I’ll update this post if I find anything wrong with it 😉


Sounds good with some light distortion and little bit of tremolo. Enjoy!

Hey, not sure if everyone noticed the edit to my last post, so I’m making a new post…

It appears that I missed a source file (.py) in my original zip, so I’ve updated the zip to include it. If you were having problems running the game in linux or OSX, please re-download and try again :)

Thanks for your patience.
