I’m almost dead, but I finally got to make something slightly playable before the Jam ended XD

This is my first time soloing so I’m very happy with the results! 😀 (not with the game, my game is really really really crappy XD)

This masterpiece couldn't make to the actual game XD

The game (which I called EgyptGeddon) is a sidescroller about pyramids, artifacts & aliens, so if you feel curious you can try it here 😉

Not sure if I’ll be able to make something for the Jam XD

I’m terribly slow, so the compo was out of the question, but I’d like to finish something playable for the Jam ^_^U

I had planned making a sidescroler in which the main character (an archeologist) finds an egyptian artifact with superpowers, then the pyramids start taking off like starships and the world goes to hell. I didn’t realized at first, but I probably should have tried something simpler XD

Right now I’ve got only lots of placeholders, a working menu and some horrible & broken gameplay intent. And 19,5 hours to go, yay! XD

Yeah, not the best name but Apocalipto was already taken, so it was this one or Egypsis

Also, bugs, bugs everywhere XD

Let’s have fun until the end of the Jam! 😀

Somebody else is still planning? XD

All right, after 3 hours spinning around the theme, I have probably overthought enough XD

I think I’ll take a short 10 min break before my head explodes for real XD After that I’ll start making one of the ideas I was considering, probably a sidescroller with egyptian artifacts :)

I’m in! :D

This will be my second Ludum Dare! 😀 Long time since 1st one, I missed it a lot! ^_^

This is my first time soloing so I’ll try going for the compo, but probably will end making the jam route (that is if I get to finish at all XD)

I’ll make a 2D game (I love big pixels ^_^) but apart from that I’m not planning anything else, I’ll wait for the theme and let’s see what kind of game I can imagine! 😀

I’ll be using:
-Engine: GameMaker: Studio (tought I’ll probably use notepad++ for code)
-Graphics: Aseprite (maybe also Gimp and/or Photoshop)
-Sounds: Bfxr + Audacity
-Music: FamiTracker and/or MuLab (+Audacity), maybe I’ll use some automatic generated music from http://abundant-music.com/ as a base. This will be my first try making music, so maybe I’ll end just using royalty free chiptunes XD
-Recording/video editing (for timelapse): CamStudioPortable + VirtualdubMod
-Version control: Git + BitBucket

It’s a pity that LD ratings won’t work as usual for this LD, but there is no problem without a solution, so I think I will also join the Itch Dare ( https://itch.io/jam/itch-dare ) to be able to rate games and so :)

Everybody, good luck and let’s have fun!! 😀

October Challenge: A Hole New World

Sunday, November 2nd, 2014 10:50 am

October ended, but luckily we managed to publish the game in time! We are really happy!! 😀

We worked on the game we developed for the past 30 Ludum Dare entry http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-30/?action=preview&uid=38790

People encouraged us so much that we decided to give it a try and try to finish the game for selling as the october challenge suggested :)

As it was too much work for only a month, we decided that the best option we had was to finish a pair of stages and then upload the game. We also told the possible buyers that the game is in expansion (we plan to develop three more stages), and that while it’s unfinished they can buy the game on sale (i.e. 1$ instead of its final price, that will be 5$).

I’m very happy to say that there are already several buyers (I didn’t expect people to buy the game before we did a bit of promo at least ^^), and if everything’s going ok we’ll try to allocate the game in some more stores, like OUYA store and Steam :)

Thank you for the jump-start, Ludum Dare friends! And good luck for all of you too! ^o^

Hey! How are you doing! ;D

I’ve finished recompressing & uploading the video, and I thought that maybe someone could enjoy watching it, so here you go ^^

But beware!! There are spoilers in the video! D:

So if you haven’t already played it, you can click here and download it (and rate it as well while you’re at it ^^).

Best wishes!

JJ

Yay! We did it! :D

We get to finish in time! 😀 😀 😀

It was a crazy weekend! XD

We all 5 in team worked really hard, sleeping the least and nonstop programming, drawing, making music & sounds (and fighting some almost indestructible bugs XD) but we had a really great time! 😀
CREW-(dead)-animated-cropped

For most of us it was the first Ludum Dare, and although we would have loved having more time to polish the game, we are very satisfied: D

We wanted to pay homage to the NES. So both the music (made with FamiTracker) and graphics (sprites with a maximum of 6 colors, 3 color tiles, etc.) and the kind of game tries to imitate the games of that great console.
You should listen this music while watching the world go round XD

We had a really good time , we are exhausted but very happy ^^

I hope all of you had as much fun as we did! 😀 See you in the next Ludum Dare! 😀

¡Conseguimos acabar a tiempo! 😀 😀 😀

¡Ha sido un fin de semana loquísimo! XD

Hemos estado trabajando a piñón los 5 del equipo, durmiendo lo mínimo y sin parar de programar, hacer gráficos y sonido y pelearnos con bugs casi indestructibles, pero nos lo hemos pasado genial 😀

CREW-(dead)-animated-cropped

Para la mayoría de nosotros ha sido nuestro primer Ludum Dare, y aunque nos gustaría haber tenido más tiempo para pulir el juego, estamos muy Satisfechos 😀

Hemos querido hacer un homenaje a la NES. Tanto la música (hecha con FamiTracker) como los gráficos (sprites de 6 colores máximo, tiles de 3 colores, etcétera) como el tipo de juego intentan imitar los juegos de esa gran consola.
Si podeis deberiais escuchar esta musica mientras veis girar la tierra XD

Nos lo hemos pasado fenomenal, estamos derrengados pero muy muy contentos ^^

¡Esperamos que todos os lo hayáis pasado tan bien como nosotros! 😀 ¡Nos veremos en el próximo Ludum Dare! 😀

Connected Worlds WIP :)

Connect Worlds…  Well, at the beginning some of us hated the theme, but after several hours working on it, we think it’s not so bad, maybe even we like it :)

Here is an image of the current graphics.
