Ludum Dare Wrap up – Narwhal with a gun

So I managed to submit on time for the compo rather than the jam this time, which is automatically better than last time I tried LD. I think my scope was more manageable and I certainly know more about unity/programming than I did over a year ago so that certainly helped.

I am happy with my game, I even enjoy playing it which I didn’t think I would after spending hours staring at it! There are always going to be things I would do differently or things I wish I had time to add, but as a whole I am pleased with how the weekend went, and I am looking forward to doing even better next time!

I can’t rest just yet, I have a lot of uni work to catch up on, but I am going to be looking out for my results + voting lots of games myself over the next week. Has been a great (but exhausting) weekend :)

Please play and rate my game, it is much appreciated! πŸ˜€


I’m in

Can’t wait to see what the theme is going to be!

I finally got round to uploading a little time lapse video of me drawing my player and enemy characters, it also has some game footage at the end. If you fancy playing and rating my game please do (link), I will play and rate the games of the people who leave a comment if I haven’t already played it :)


Too ambitious

Well, I made good progress today, but not quite enough. I managed to get all the art and programming done, but I haven’t been able to make all the levels or add finishing touches, so I’ve decided to submit to the Jam tomorrow. Although I wanted to get in the comp, I would have had to hand in something unfinished and with only one level so I think it would be better to submit something better to the Jam instead. I am still happy with the stuff I have learnt and been able to achievement throughout this past weekend, I just chose an idea that was too complicated. Not too bad for my first LD though.

Some more progress shots:




Some of the features I have implemented:

– Map read from txt file

– Player movement, collision and light

– Enemies, player health, player attack ability

– Powerups (chest and battery)

– Pickups (Various items, key etc)

– Particle effects

– Countdown Timer

– Cut scene/Sideshow for Story info


Left to do:

– Make Levels

– Finish Cut scene art

– Make menus pretty

So it was going well yesterday… until I hit a few problems late last night. Fatigue and my lack of programming knowledge meant I wasted some time doing nothing when I could have been sleeping. But 5 hours sleep later, here I am. Time to get the art done and then post a picture :)

First Ludum Dare!

This is my first time entering, feeling nervous and excited, my main concern is making sure my game is fun and finishing on time :)

I will be using Unity (free version) with C#
