On the Edge of Earth: 5000 – postmortem

What went right:

  • Time management. I’m really glad that I never felt like I was rushing the game. I got a lot done and managed to get a good nights sleep for both of the nights!
  • Mood. I watched the first three Star Trek films and the 1972 film Silent Running prior to the competition. I was really hopped up on sci-fi and I think I conveyed that into a game pretty well.
  • Animations. I decided to try a new (for me) animation technique for pixel graphics and I think it looks pretty fluid. There’s still room to improve so I think I’ll use it in the future also.
  • Audio. I recorded a lot of button sounds with my Super Nintendo and I think it sounds very crisp. Also loving Unitys 3D sound system, makes the whole ship feel more alive with airshafts that actually get louder when standing under them.
  • Pooping.

What went wrong:

  • Lack of tutorials (not counting the hand book for the station). I didn’t think that I’d need to add instructions since the game only uses arrow keys. A lot of players still didn’t realize that you can run by holding down arrow. My bad! I did add a tutorial for it in the post-compo version.
  • Ending. I should have made it a bit more climatic. I had the time for it so there’s no excuse for it. I made up for it in the post-compo version. 😉
  • Theme. I was really uninspired by the theme. So I kinda had to force it in. It’s not as bad as it could be but still a bit far fetched.
  • Polish. I’m playing a lot of good games made for this LD and I wish I too had taken more time to just add that extra little polish. Maybe next time I’ll turn the scope down and just polish the shit out of something smaller.

That’s all I can think of! A big thanks to everyone who has rated the game and offered nice comments and critiques.  And if you haven’t played it yet, there’s still time!

I got my game done and I’m quite happy with it! :) This Ludum Dare went surprisingly smooth, I didn’t run into any major problems during development. Maybe coming up with a name was the hardest part.

In the end I decided to use a name that would remind people of the dumb sci-fi movies from yesterday. After all, the game is inspired by them. :)

Go play and rate it so I know to play yours!

Smaller resolution!

Smaller resolution!

I posted a post-compo version of my bird nesting game with a smaller resolution after many people complained it not fitting their screen.

I also added a bit more thrust for the bird, so it should be a bit more easier to control!

The feedback has otherwise been absolutely great and the game has been featured on IndieStatik and on the frontpage of Newgrounds.It’s been really motivating and I already cant wait for the next Ludum Dare! :)
