I always wanted to try this. No idea about how this could fit into the theme, but I will figure out something…

I’am in. Heh.

Well, no idea yet, just trying to pass time with doing useless stuff, like a desk photo! Yay!

My desk. Well, my girlfriends desk, my notebook.

Space Islands!

So, alright, this is it for day #1 – its “space islands” aka asteroids something. Bascially this is going to be a RTS in which the player has to harverst ressources, build stuff and defend against some kind of aliens. I really dont know yet – the art is mostly temporary right now, except for the abstract icons, this is the style I really want to go for. :)

The green polygon is some kind of indicator for ressources, the blue icon is a mine/harvester, the red thingy is a factory, and the box is a storage

Progress, sort of.

Well.. Ladder collision took way too much time, I dont have anything “playable” yet, you can walk around, dig and build the ladders.

Now – make some quick artwork for some valuable stuff, implement perlin noise level generator and some score and I have something playable!

This is what I got so far… Iam quite happy with it, so I better start coding up some stuff!

(Yeah, not really “caverns”, but.. err.. well.. Look, a three-headed monkey!)

First things first.

Soo. Breakfast. I kinda feel sick after that party yesterday, so its only toast.  :(

Good thing with waking up a few hours after the theme announcement: There is already some insperation! Too bad its caverns, I had NO idea for this one…

Guess I am in anyways.

I will be using Gosu and C++, and want to experiment with some opengl shaders, if I ever come this far, that is. Sound will be mainly sfxr, and no music I guess.

Oh! I need an avater… Ohwell! Time to lurk in the irc channel and steal some ideas 😉

Escape from LHC

Alright, I am done. Just a little “standard” AWOD. Too tired to write a description. I like to add I still don’t like the theme :'(

Well, basically:

You are a scientist at CERN, working on the LHC – LHC malfunctions, a blackhole is generated and you have to flee from the CERN … to the super-secret anti-blackhole-buffer-device-powered super-bunker (which is painted in antimatter-paint, so thats a plus also!)….. :/

Windows-Binary and sourcecode: Here

WSAD or Arrow-Keys to move, SPACE to activate stuff.


  • AWOD is consuming time and tiles, distorting them and radiating you.
  • Weird mapsystem based on bitmaps :S
  • Oh, and based on textfiles with a fucked up format for triggers

Things left out: Well, the highway-chase, a lot of gameplay, leveleditor for the player, good graphics, sounds, music.

Thanks to all the ppl in #gosu, it was a real blast, even tho my entry sucks! Maybe we manage to meet for the next ld! :)

thats it for my first day, heading back to sleep now I guess.

Mapsystem is done, trigger and textsystem is also. Collision is still a bit buggy, but thats fixable.

Other then that, CONTENT CONTENT CONTENT. Ohyes, and winning/losing conditions.

good night!

Alright, alright. After 12 hours in I finaly have an idea I like.

You are a scientist at CERN, working on the LHC – LHC malfunctions, a blackhole is generated and you have to flee from the CERN (act 1), run to the parking space and steal a car (act 2) and finaly drive over the highway to the super-secret anti-blackhole-buffer-device-powered super-bunker….. :/

I am in too!

After last time which has been a good experience for me, I decided to enter again! I made the 4th place in “Theme”, and I am very proud of that. It was my first ludum dare and my first playable (and winnable!) game ever!

Will use C++ and Gosu like the last time, not screwing around with OpenGL. Well… maybe I will try to implement some shaders if I find the time for that… :) Just hoping for a good theme now :S

Here is a little bugfix on the game – I did not intend to upload it at first, but here it is anyways, please dont vote based on this.

Fixed windows binary and updated source. you can click now :)

It updates the buggy taxi pathfinding, it now should not go crazy about deadends after curved roads. have fun with it 😉

In this action puzzler you have to get your taxis from their start points to their goals (tinted in the same color, also the taxis have a tinted arrow on top of them).

To do this, you have to rotate the tiles.

More in the readme.txt…

the game and sourcecode. please dont click :(

Also, here is a screenshot from the first prototype:

End of day2…. almost.

I have now about one hour left to fix the bugs left, then I have to call it a day. There were a few things that did not go as planned, but that has to wait till tomorrow, for now, here is my latest screenshot:

Thats it then: A halfway-done action-puzzler with half of the grapics not done, an ugly bug in its pathfinder and only 5 levels. Guess the only thing I do now is get a few more levels and thats it for this time, my first ld48 ever.

Alright, got a good 8 hours of sleep and starting the gameplay. Taxis now drive along the road, and can do a full 180. Now to get fuel, collisions and some goal implemented!

Oh, yes, and some food shot, too! This is my lunch:

yay \o/

So, its my first ludum dare ever! In front I was not quite sure if I should participate or not, and with the theme I hesitated even more. Guess I am in at last.

Started coding with OpenGL with no real idea in my head, but got a easy-to-make one in between. Scrapped a few hours of opengl-code because GL_SELECTION was giving me a headache – switched to gosu instead and till now I havent looked back!

My idea is a little puzzle game – you have to make a way for taxis that want to go from A to B, clicking on a tile rotates it. Taxis must not crash into each other, but the drivers are smart enough to do a 180 if they hit a dead end. No gameplay implemented, yet, but here is a early screen:
