[LD37] Moon Maze Post-Mortem

Posted by
Sunday, December 25th, 2016 4:31 am

pmn

Hi everyone,

This is my 6th LD jam. As a indie game maker, I take LD very seriously as a chance to explore creativity and skills.

So one day before the jam, I took some time and thought about every final theme and came up with some ideas.

pre-jam ideas

And this is for “One Room” and several other themes. Player is trapped among giant boulders, and somehow he has the ability to move these boulder around. But due to the limited open space, it is still a difficult job to move around.

 “Klotski”的图片搜索结果

Klotski puzzle. in China, we call it Hua Rong Dao(华容道).

It is basically a twist of kind of puzzle called “Klotski”(sliding blocks around to move  a marked block to certain place.). My idea is about twisting this mechanic into a exploration game: the world is full of sliding blocks, big and small in various shapes; player must move through with some careful thoughts.

 


The Jam Starts

bs

But right after the jam starts, I started a brainstorm and had more ideas.

I was not very satisfied with the first idea. Reasons:

1.Not hitting the theme hard

Theme “One Room” is about physical space limitation. But this idea would end up a game world much larger than “One Room”.

One the other hand, it is not possible for the player to feel like in any room. As there is no way to add furniture.

2. How to balance the “puzzle” part?

This idea is definitely not about remaking the “Klotski” puzzle. I will not design the blocks so that player can pass with the right difficulty. Not to mention I want to add certain free play into the level design. So how do player deal with “impossible” situation?

I preferred idea No.2 “Use Room as resource” from the brain storm, yet I couldn’t came up with solid design.

Player has “One Room” and that’s all he got. He can take actions to counter the threat of death. But actions would be placing items on ground that cost “room (slots)”.

I still like this idea No.2 even after the jam. I can think of some great idea now. But I couldn’t come up with idea good enough under the pressure of jam.

Here was the idea I had after 4 hours after the jam starts (very funny, but no):

One day, the husband lost his job and he was very sad.

But he came up with a poster about a “Money Making Machine”.

He ordered one and he set it up in the living room.(Taking up a slot) The machine makes $1 every second. Player can also press the machine directly. The machine makes a “ka-ching”  sound for every dollar it makes, even in night, which drived the wife crazy.

Yet then, husband just buy more machines with money he made. And he has to sell his furniture to make room for the machine.

In the meantime, I made some breakthrough for the idea No.1:

cut2

  • Player can CUT a block out of a larger block to make the “impossible” situation possible to handle. And there is a “battery-cost” to have the player not abusing it.

crush2

  • Player can hold the moving button and then release to make the block “RUSH” forward, crashing monsters along the way!!!

The second breakthrough bring the element of “BATTLE” into the game, and then I feel the idea complicated enough. As for the theme, I aimed to continue the development after the jam and hoped to publish somewhere , and the idea is good on its own.

Idea No.1 won the bidding.

 


Coding is Fun

timeline

How the three days spent

I happened to be in a time-zone of UTC+8:00. The jam starts at 10:00 am Saturday, end at 10:00 am Monday.(I aimed for compo when the jam start). I don’t have a job currently, good for the jam.

cart

This is the decided concept art in AI

During the actual development, concept art was decided very quickly (I didn’t ask too much). I spent the first two days writing code. Here are certain jobs that cost me time:

  • Move/rush a block: check how far it can go.
  • Cutting: cut a piece out of  a block, results in 2 or 3 blocks.
  • Render the blocks: trace the border line of a block and create mesh to render.
  • Analyse the tile-map data and create blocks for tiles neighboring same color. (must fast enough)
  • Light up the blocks that can be see but no further.(This is totally just eye-candy)

design

Before each level, tilemap data must be parsed and split into each block. And you have to do it quick.

a1 a2

A single cut might just cause a block split into 3 blocks. That’s what makes it complex.


Desperation

These coding carried me away. During the late night of the second day, I felt sleepy and realized that maybe I can not stay up. Desperation arise. Here are the reason I should felt desperate:

  • I have not touched UI.
  • I had no actual level design.
  • There wasn’t any level structure (title, thank for playing, level select, etc).
  • I haven’t thought about the game title yet.

I have spent too much time on the coding of core mechanic itself. I should have spent the time more wisely, in the order of importance, and submitted early and then update.

In the end,  I had to switch from compo to jam! I have another day to fight.

 


The Final Redemption

The third day, I worked on UI, logo, the first and only level, sounds and some bugs. I stayed up through the night. I had underestimated the “extra” work.

lastDay

The last screen of game if the last job of development.

Back before the jam started, I had wished that I could have more time creating levels and have player enjoy for a longer time.


Post-Jam and Future

After the jam, I created another two levels, worked on a lot of other improvements. Currently I am working on a completed version of the game. Instead of a level-based game, I would like to experiment with random-map generation and rogue-like elements.

 

Thank you for reading.

God’s Gift the story

Posted by
Tuesday, August 30th, 2016 12:06 am

My entry is a little strategy game featured a tech tree (like in civ) with ultimate technology to save the universe.

When I was submitting, I realized that the game is too complicated to understand… (One drawback for solos) .

So I decided to write a story to explain the background.

Please note that currently the game is only roughly completed, there is too much to  improve. And I hadn’t the time to actually put the big tech tree (designed for two days) into the game.

There will be a updated version.

LINK TO MY ENTRY.

 

God’s Gift

4000 BC

The player stands in the desert, waiting.

Before him, the giant structure casts a shadow that covers a thousand men. There were the people that lived along the river. Now for the first time, they gathered around this giant structure.

Their king ordered the men to open this structure that had been there for thousands of years.

The men, thousands of them, pulled the ropes that ties up to a heavy stone. Then, someone shouted a commend, and they all let go. The heavy stone crashed on a larger brick of the pyramid. The latter hold still, but they repeated, until the wall of the pyramid gave in. The first slave run inside and returned, carrying a piece of flat and transparent stone.

“Optics.” The player mustered to himself.

As a player, he can see all and know all, in a trade, no one else can see or know him.

Another slave carried a jar. He stutted and fell, and everybody around was frightened by the black viscous liquid that spurred out.

The last findings was just a handful of seeds. The kings hold the seeds in both his hands, with the rest of people on their knees, claimed that these were God’s Gift.

The player left before the ritual ended.

 

AC 1134

The spacesuit was designed  in a different fashion to the memory of the player.

The first rocket had failed and killed its first female astronaut. But human never gave up.

The radio was not very stable, so the latter part  of the landing mission was under the command of the captain.

The space craft looked very tiny against the pyramid on the moon.

But the reversal thrusting was calculated without the account of such a structure…

The player worry a bit when the craft crashed.

But after a while, the captain, in his space suit, get off and found himself standing before the entrance of a ancient pyramid structure.

The man start talking on the radio, forgetting the fact that no one but only the Player could hear him.

Yet, the player cannot understand Arabic.

 

AC 1798

Cain-788901 vonlunteered on this sun-landing mission.

The plan was to shoot their capusule into the sun and then the capusule will operate like a submarine and dock into the pyramid.

Unmanned missions had yield success several times and located the pyramid floating about 300k miles from the core.

 

The artifacts found on the moon has speed up the technology development for hundreds of years.

And also the pyramid is the ultimate mystery for human.

So the signal from within the sun is distinguished, they immidiantly started the sun project.

 

The player float above the ocean of eternal flames. Waiting for the capsule to shoot from a giant spaceship.

The capasule is built with vacum materail to keep off the heat conduction and coated with invisible shield against radiation.

Even the player can not see the invisible capasule. Instead, he was facing the sun and then, he saw the disturbance pattern the capasule left on the surface when it passed.

It is beautiful.

 

 

 

 

AC 2016

6000 years were not very long for the player, yet still, he felt very tired, from  frustration.

Before him, the last science committee conference was being hold, as the ending time is soon.

The player sit in a chair that belongs to the god. In this universe, there had been a ritual to spare one more chair for the ultimate observer in any scientific meeting.

“The condensing speed is faster than we had expected.” The chairman spoke directly to mind of everyone seated.

He then “talked” some complex data models though this brainwave communication.

“Among the seven planets, earth will be the second to be destroyed. The last planet will have extra 0.13 seconds of time.”

Another mind talked, “The research on the pyramid draws one conclusion that could be helpful. ”

“The foamton field could protect the pyramid and things within.”

“We had talked about it before. What good will some objects do when all observer has diminished?”

“There is one possibility that they could be opened by another human civilization in another but same universe.”

“Go on.”

“If we put some items that could be helpful to them on the technology….”

“Then maybe they have a chance to accumulate enough technology to find the Ultimate theory?”

“Now, suggestions for the items? PhotonStick? A book?”

“We must plan this on a technology tree or sth.”

 

The player watched as they shield the gate again. There wasn’t any time left before the condensing.

The human and earth, the stars, everything swallowed by the instant whiteness.

Only the pyramid and the player stands, in the middle of nothing.

One singularity exploded, then another, then all of them.

The time came into being. The foam gradually formed.

The sun was born and then earth.

And finally, the sand filled under the feet of the player until there were desert again.

Not far way from him, a stream is growing to a river.

Patiently, he waits.

It is a very interesting plat former puzzle

 


Line Square Tower

by dalbinblue

 

Imagine that shape-shift is the super ability for a hero!

Well, that’s common. But this game is very funny to allow you to shift between flat state and thin state.

Well, a few games use that concept, too. But the best part of the game is how you move up and down stairs in thin state.

Also, you can expect a polished/smoothed levels.

 


 

Signed Distance Shift

by netgrind

 

The jammer created a stunning visual animation and somehow design a puzzle on top of it.

 


 

Robot Snake

This time, the game uses a very unique and intuitive and fun way to move.

This is really great job!

 

 


windowframe

by managore

 

Daniel Linssen is one of the best jammers in Ludum Dare.

And this time, he came up with the idea of shifting the shape of window.

It is a very nice entry to enjoy in LD.

Camp Starvation

by Double Zero One Zero

This is a realist survival game! As the leader, to survive, you need to either feed people or kill people.

As you are the only man with gun, so you have to be the monster.

It’s that Paper, Please style game!

Eye In The Sky

by djfariel

Because of this jam, monster-destroy-everything will became a new sub-genre.

Well this game, it’s just a very polished monster-destroy-everything game.

Fireapocalypseeverseen!!!

by DAT.NOT.MY.GAME!

In this game, sometimes (well, most times) you are pursued, sometimes you become stronger and pursue them.

It’s what makes Pacman Pacman.

Amebiasis

by theshadowteam

You are the tiny evil inside human body, inside blood vessels. The game is not that polished, but its single-button mechanism to move around, I think is inspiring.

Monster Factory

by tMalicet

The modern entertainment world meet millions of monsters everyday! The movies, the games, the novels and TVs.

You are the supplier for zombies and orcs for the film and game industry.

But not every monster fits every genre! You need experiments and common sense to get the best profit.

Back for Dinner

by vegapomme27

It’s a unique story! Alien ship crashed. You play as a alien baby finding his way back to his father.

At first you are very weak, but as a alien monster you can evolve to be stronger(faster, jump higher and tougher).

Then you can explore more of the world!

Again, upgrade system make this game very interesting!

Perspective

by ChuiGum

This game has great music and visual, strong and in its own style. It’s like walking into a strange bar…

It’s a running game, but perspective is constantly changing (from side view to top-down)

Project Jumpius

by kirilllosev

This is a monster game. Entire human army are on you. But you can jump on vehicles and choppers to destroy them.

The art is very lovely.

Oko Furia

by Tselmek

Well, it feels so good smashing the buildings!

It’s better than flappy bird!

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=48996

The Hosts

by Warxen

It’s game about possess and stealth.

You can choose any guard to possess and then kill all the guards.

It is fun to think about how to kill someone without being found.

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=57675

U no take Loot!

by Orni

You need to defend your gold against the mob. Buy traps and burn the them down!

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=10771

We Are Monster

by JoshuaBurr

It looks like Cosmos! You need to eat white ones and shoot at purples ones.

The visual style is hard work.

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=37414

D÷V÷S÷ON

by pinkmonkeyhead

The game has the perspective of looking at small things on ground.

It’s like Pikmin! Game play is like cosmos, big eat small.

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=11711

Tenebrous Expanse

by WubAlliance

You move like pooling ball. The art style is unique. The game very polished.

It’s like a dessert puzzle game.

Well, thank you for reading, and thank your for support. All is personally. Leave a comment for anything.

VOL-1 http://ludumdare.com/compo/2015/08/24/ld33-picked-by-gb-vol-1


 

The Last Little Monster

by Chris M

You attack those guys and collect coins and then you fly to other planets.

The way you fly to other planet is really inspiring.

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=35889

Quarantine

by BoskoSokolov

You are monster and run at human like all other entries, but you can buy upgrades!

Upgrading makes a game not boring any more.

It is a way to create lengthy gameplay around simple concept!

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=38564

A Beautiful Day to DIE

by Integershift

In this game you infect human and a zombie is spawn right where human was.

The new zombie will move with your arrow key as well. And you can grow an army of zombies.

This is unique.

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=25019

Flying Purple

by pkenney

You control a purple dragon. And control is very inspiring.

I wish I can make it breath fire and change the title to Smaug.

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=30865

Meet the Monsta

by Schrodinger Games

What you see above is what you play in game. Yes with the hand.

With this game, you can play cardboard monster battle game without cardboard.

And that is really cool. And it represents the spirit of  game jam: being creative, original and bold.

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=39357

Monster Destroy Things

by Cory Martin

It is simple game with hard working on pixel drawing.

You have a large world to unleash your wrath on TVs and sofa.

I imagine a GTA with pixels from this.

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=3043

I AM THE SUN

by primaerfunktion

You have only limited time in a jam. And some jammers put it all on visual stuff.

And things I don’t understand, like the censored face and the talking bird.

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=12505

Wild Flirting

by bloomingbuds

Monsters in this game have rare skin colors, like to cook weird things, and love to flirts with young girls over social apps.

It’s a text dating  game with funny lines.

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=56152

The Legend of Monsters

by Eingya

Monsters are commonly programmed in a bad way., like some can only walk in one line,  and some can only turn left.

The game is about these monsters. Levels and challenges were designed around those limitations.

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=55955

Ugly Turtle

by HacksawUnit

This game is simple, you shoot a turtle from the pipe when mario is jumping.

The game is very polished: with all the pixels graphics, animation, and sounds.

This scene maybe a moment for Mario, but it’s the life for the turtle-shooter pipe.

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=17731

Sirens

by miotatsu

You ‘build’ Sirens, you can click the Siren to make her sing(skill with CD), ship will be attracted to her, and thus hit the rocks.

So you earn money to build more Sirens and rocks.

It’s working tower defense game.

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=22685

Sly Slime – Revenge On All Players

by reckhou

The game has decent visuals and sounds. And cool voxel style.

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=55414

Hero Stomp

by Chadivision

You are the green guy, a guy who are going to be robbed by humans.

(People think they can just rob someone with different skin color?)

With no power up, traps, archer-towers, super abilities, it is too hard to defend those chests at all.

The game is inspiring for add-up designs.

What do you think? Should designer consider adding skills with CD?  Or minions? Or traps menu?

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=49058

Fired

by Evergreen Games

Fired_Windows 2015-08-25 22-15-59-65

In this game, it is possible to hit all targets with one bullet. Because you are that bullet.

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=47043


That’s all for today. Again, all is done personally. Don’t take it too seriously.

You can drop your entry link in the comments and I will review it and might pick it.

I have received many requests in vol-1 post. Thanks. I will try to review all of them. I will.
