I’m in – now I will start making my game

I have developed a game idea for this complicated theme: It will be a multiplayer ASCII (trunbased? – do you think thats fun?) topdown shooter :)

Thanks to the IRC #ludumdare members who motivate you if you have no idea what to do and where to get started.

Do you want to play it? It’s available here. And do not forget to leave a nice comment :)

I am working on a new (Ninja!) post-compo levelpack, which will be online soon.

And if you have nothing to do – the leveldesigner is included (Just read the notes before using) 😉

End of the first day

I did not worked hard today, but I got many things done (Graphics, Music, 1/2 Code). My game is a plattformer with procedual generated levels (boring :p) – no badguys (boring :p) – And one collectable item (boring :p)
I wanted to make it awesome, I would have been able to do this, but I have already pushed the ‘engine’ (== AutoIt & GDI+) to its limits. I should use irrlicht.dll or sdl.dll tomorrow, but i have no experience with them (creating backbuffers etc.)


Good night :)

1/2 Day – Preview

In my game you can manipulate DNA, which modifies the character’s design and abilities.

I just don’t know if i make a plattformer (I have already drawn all sprites) or something else (in which i can use my sprites) 😀


Already Excited (2nd LD attempt)

Just 2:15h remaining and i am really excited. I failed in the last Ludum Dare 23 and hope, that i manage to submit a working game this time. Since the last Ludum Dare Compo i have been creating games for some MiniLDs/NanoLDs, so i think i am well prepared.
I will use:

AutoIt – interpeter
(Irrlicht – 3D engine) or GDI+
TuxGuitar – composing music
GXSCC – creating 8bit music from *.midi files
or Audacity + my real guitar
Corel PaintShop Pro X – graphics

Good Luck (and hopefully a bit fun :D)

In this game made for the first 8h LD http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/2012/05/09/i-call-first-8hld/ you play Drache, a young dragon. Graphics/Sound/Music/Code was created by myself in 7 hours.

Help Drache to reach Redisland while avoiding green butterflies – he has a butterfly allergy.


[left ] -> Fly up

[right] -> Fly down

[space] -> Shoot fireballs


Do not hit the ground or the ceiling.

Good Luck
