I’m done

Actually I was done early this morning, but was too tired to write.

I had a great time hanging out with Vilcans and Dreadzilla, and we all submitted our games!

I think it went pretty well this time, I was mostly finished saturday night and spent the sunday with music, graphics and bug fixes.

Please play and rate my take on the theme:

I’m in for the 7th time.

This time I’m going to use, in no particular order, at least:

Typescript, Tiled, Gimp, Reason, Visual Studio Code, Python, Google Chrome, and Oxford comma

Good luck to everyone!

I’m done!

This time I decided early on that I wanted to do an Outrun-style racing game,
using techniques from the 8-bit/16-bit era. So that is what I did,
there is no 3d in the game, just the illusion of 3d.

Check it out!

I’m in again!

This time I will do a browser based game, most likely with phaser and javascript.

Have fun everyone!

Yeah, I made it!

The game is called Connected Words.

Actually I was mostly finished yesterday, spent the day fixing some sound effects and trying out different ideas for game play.

Try it:


And let me know if you are good at REGEX.


Here I go again

I’m in for the 4th time!

I have used different libraries and programming languages each time I have entered, and this will be no exception. This time I will make a browser based game using:

  • Coffeescript
  • GIMP
  • Reason
  • Tiled
  • maybe some rendering lib like pixi.js

and perhaps something more…

Good luck to everyone!


Finally done

Ahh, I’m finally done!

I have used some new apis or programming languages for each LD that I have entered.

This time I decided to use ClojureScript, and it has really been a pain! As expected I spent most of my time hunting down mismatching brackets or parenteses or …

Anyway I finished a little game. You can try it out here:

I’m in.

This time I am going to use ClojureScript,

and I expect that the hardest part will be learning a new language!


I know, I know, I should use tools that I know…

But where is the fun in that???

Ok, I’am done.

Just like last time I didn’t really have time, since I was alone with the kids.

Anyway, at least I made something,

and the music turned out pretty minimalistic

and for the minimalistic sound effects I sampled my kids banging on our pots and pans.

Im in for the third time.

This time I will use OSX, Java, libgdx, eclipse, gimp, tiled and bxfr and …

Unfortunately I won’t be able to spend more than a few hours on the compo.

Alone with the kids all weekend…

So, I’m done.

This time I knew from the start that I wouldn’t have the time needed…

Anyway, at least I did something!

Actually the music turned out pretty good.


Tools used:

Eclipse, Java, libgdx, GIMP, Reason,

Coffee, Glögg and Friends (Jocke, Martin and the others at Goo meetup in Stockholm)

So, I’m finally finished…

If I had more time I would have added music and an end game sequence.


Tools used:

Eclipse, Scala, LWJGL, bfxr, JarSplice, BMFont, GIMP, Google

Friends (Martin & Jocke), coffee and food


It works just fine on my Mac, but fails on my Windows box


Anyway, you can try it out here: http://kompetensum.com/ld24/evolutionFat.jar

You take the role as a Triangle that wants to evolve into a Circle.

You do that by eating green line segments spinning around in space.




I’m in!

IDE: Eclipse

Language: Java or Scala or …

Graphics: No idea! Maybe gimp, a bitmap font editor and a sprite editor… or not!

Library: Most likely LWJGL and Slick

Sound: A sound effects generator, Audacity and Reason

Good luck to all!
