Up all night & pumped to be working on a jam submission with my partner Martian Games & our buddy IKU Games.  We planned ahead for this one & so far so good!  Tried live-streaming a bit last night, with another stream planned for late tonight.

Hope everyone else is having as much fun as we are!

LudumDare #33 !?

My 1st LudumDare challenge was #32 and it was so much fun!  I’ve been practicing 3D modeling, Unity, voice acting & 2D art since the last one.  Though I’m on schedule to work this weekend, when the theme is announced I will make a decision as to whether or not to participate.  If I don’t try to dev a game of some sort, I’ll definitely be playing submissions like I did last time – what a blast!

For LD32, I modeled the cow for Soccer Cows, made a new YouTube channel JenniNexusPlaysGames & compiled my Let’s Play Twitch stream videos, in this playlist → Let’s Play: LudumDare #32

One of my favorite features of game jams is the social aspect and making new friends / connections from around the world, with complimentary interests in game art, play and development.

Looking forward to seeing ya all around this weekend!

Soccer Cow: our #LDJAM Submission

Hi friends!  After an intense game jam weekend packed with excitement, we were able to submit Soccer Cows just in time!

MartianGames did all the programming and we collaborated with my 3D-cow-modeling skills to make this Unconventional Weapon-themed experience.  I’m glad we teamed up because he’s teaching me to code & I’m still a novice :-) but I’m loving the opportunity to expand my skills and learn from an experienced developer.  The community has been really fun to meet & explore and I’ve appreciated the creative encouragement!  Looking forward to future jams & getting better all the time.

Still not sure my entire angle for the Unconventional Weapon theme for Ludum Dare 32, but working at something & going to see how it all comes together!!  Determined to complete something cute and/or hilarious by the end of the jam!  My partner is helping me with code and may also wind up submitting his own or collaborating more with me as well.  Sprites made in Flash, and using Unity for game play – make my day and stop by the stream ≧◉◡◉≦

I’m still learning how to make games & game art but am tempted to submit an entry for the weekend warmup!  Last year my partner & I collaborated on an entry for #indiesvspewdiepie – that’s so far the only Game Jam I’ve participated in 😀

It’s so insipring to see the community of supportive gamers/artists on Ludum Dare & elsewhere in the world.  Looking forward to connecting locally and globally, with similarly inspired devs & artists.
