So this is my very first Ludum Dare, and I’ve teamed up with PixelBear, who is doing the programming. Of course, once the theme was announced I was a little worried, since I am primarily an artist. After the worried cries of “aghhh squares!!” on Twitter we finally thought about the theme for a bit and decided to go in a different direction. We took the idea of mini-games, and portions of games that are fun in what might be an otherwise tedious environment. We wanted to reduce the experience down to the basic things that satisfy players. So we decided on: stats going up, beating the shit out of things until they explode, and customising your character via attaching severed body parts to yourself.

 

Hopefully it will actually be fun!
