Hi Guys!

My name is Dima. I’m developer from Lemon Tree team.
We are from Omsk (Russia).
We developed our game in one office with another 12 teams. (old48.com)
It was very very cool and fun!

In our team were 4 people:
Dima and Sasha – developers
Sasha – artist
Roma – game designer without prior experience (Cow game is his first game)

Usually we develop games for iOS with using cocos2d (Objective C) but we decided to take part in Ludum Dare and create game for Web (With using Java script, Cocos2d js, Box2d js).
It was our first project with using Java Script and Html5.
Also it was our first Ludum Dare (We were going to take part in the next Ludum Dare in December)
During first 2 hours we were thinking about theme and decided what should we do next.
Next artists started to draw art while Sasha and I tried to bind keyboard with our game code. We spent about 5-6 hours on this problem. We have found problem in cocos2d key dispatcher.

During first day we created first text based part, level editor and base mechanic for levels 2-4.
During second day we added levels, animations, intro and fixed some bugs.
Our Mistakes:
– Unknown language.
– Unknown framework.
– Before, we never developed the game for browsers.
Our right decisions:
– We had a solid team with experience in game projects.
– We were in one place and work together.
– We all realy love games!

Our result – Cow

 

Thank you!
