Ayee, it’s Ludum Dare time again!

For you returners, settle down for another go! For you new people, have fun and enjoy yourself. Try not to worry too much 😉

No matter your situation, learn something and make something magical next weekend!

Major progress, first day success :D

I’ve finished the engine (I think). I’ve started in on graphics 😀 Next up (after graphics) is sound, then polish! Hope everyone’s Ludum Dare is going well :)



Don’t fear, I’m slaughtering all the themes here…!

Since my download/upload speeds are both currently at 0.44 Mbps, I feel this is a good time to (instead of doing nothing or playing Mario) site back and slaughter some themes. With the way my internet is, I should be here for a very long time.


Update: I’ve now slaughtered 1,000 themes, and I plan to keep up the pace until voting starts.


Can’t wait for the keynote :D

That’s pretty much it, I’m super pumped for LD and I hope everyone has a box in their head where they’re storing up creative energy for Dec. 9th!

I’m in for my 8th LD!

After 7 Ludum Dares, I’m in that stage of being a noob to elders and an elder to noobs. I’m happy about the new site and can’t wait to see what comes of it! Have fun again everyone, and if you’re a beginner: don’t be scared! LD is super fun. Turn on your favorite music and try to sleep 😀

Confused about Feeback Friends?

This is less of a problem and more a thirst for understanding.

I’ve been playing games and commenting on them, and my balance is 97.

What I want to know is: Is a higher balance the thing to shoot for? Obviously you shouldn’t let balance control how quickly you rate games or anything anyway, but I’d like to know if a higher, lower, or 100 balance is the thing to aim for.

My computer is sick X_X

So, about a week ago my computer just came out of the repair shop, good as new and no longer dead. I was so relieved, hoping the entire time it would be done before Ludum Dare.

Only now, I had malware on my computer and decided the best cure was laughter and a hard system recovery. I now have no personal files on my computer and I’m spending time writing a post instead of downloading things I need for Ludum Dare 36 😀

Slaughtering themes :D

How long do you guys spend on average slaughtering themes?

I tend to spend about 10 minutes a day but I feel I should be spending a little more time persuading the system to choose a theme I like… What about you?

My computer’s in the repair shop, but I’m in..?

Everyone’s doing an “I’m In” post, and so of course naturally I have to make one as well (Tradition!)

This will be my 7th Ludum Dare Compo, but my 8th game submitted for Ludum Dare jams (My first was for a mini LD a while back)

This time around I’ll be using pretty much the same tools as always:

Machine: My computer which is currently broken and in the repair shop

Engine: Unity

Sound: Audacity and my own creativity and restrictions, possibly LMMS if I can be bothered

3D art: Blender!

Texture work: Probably Blender texture paint, except for things that need to be precise, such as UI elements and things of the sort, for which I’ll use good ol’ Gimp.

I wish us all the best of luck, and another great Ludum Dare! 😀

What time is it? (Literally)

Brainstorming setup

So, I usually stick with the vanilla text document for brainstorming, but this time around I’ve decided to have a bit of fun. I found these massive sheets of paper in my room, and I’ve taped 6 of them to my wall to create a whiteboard sort of thing, and gathered some markers and some post-it notes. Just because why not?

Duh. Of course I’m in.

Art – Gimp

Sound – Audacity/LMMS

Engine – Unity3D

3D art – Blender3D

Language(s) – Javascript and/or C#

Ideas/brainstorming – A marker, some tape, some paper, and my wall. I’m gonna tape paper on the wall and so I have a drawing board. Mostly just because it sounds fun, but also because I brainstorm better if I have a lot of room to do so. Actually, I lied. I’m only doing it because it sounds fun :3
