I did finish my game in time for the compo. However, I only got half of the screens done since I was short on time. Here is the link to my submission:  http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-35/?action=preview&uid=57608

Extremely Close, Don’t Know If I’ll Finish

I’m extremely close to finishing my game, but between the couple hours Scratch and me not being very motivated, I don’t know if I’ll be able to finish my game in an hour. We can hope.

So Scratch, my programming language I’m using, was down for maintenance for 3 hours. So I lost that time, and then I decided to watch YouTube. I’m terrible at time management.

I’ve added enemies for each area: a blob for land, a pufferfish for water, and a bat for air. These are pictured below.



(Sorry they’re a bit small :P)

Overview Of The Game

So for Mapped, you, the player, has no control over your shapeshifting abilities. This poses a slightly challenging aspect when trying to complete the storyline. The goal of the game is basically to map the world the player lives in. Now, the randomness of the shapeshifting makes it slightly more tricky to do that.  The map pieces are hidden in the different areas you can go to as certain animals. So basically, you are normally a human, but after a random amount of either 15-25 seconds, you can either be a human, a frog, a bird, or a pig. Now to go over the different abilities of each animal. For the pig, the only special thing is you move quite a bit quicker.  For the frog, you can enter watery areas such as lakes or rivers where there may, or may not, be map pieces. For the bird, the final form, you can hit the spacebar to fly, where there once again, may, or may not be map parts. It is also possible for the map pieces to be on the ground, surrounded by monsters. I may have gone overboard, but lets find out, shall we?

Making Steady Progress!

Hello everyone!

I’m in for LD35. My plan is a top-down RPG style game where the player unintentionally shapeshifts to reach other areas of the world. Right now, the goal of the game is to map out the world for your town.

I plan on using Scratch for the programming and most of the art, Audacity for the audio, and Piskel for some other art.

Good luck and have fun everyone!

I have completed my first game jam!  You can find it here:


I was warned that it would take more time than I thought, and it definitely did!  My game is finished enough for the Jam, but I plan to update it more in the future.

I know it is a simple game compared to many others posted here, but I would still appreciate your honest feedback and ratings!

I look forward to trying some of the other LD games!  Until next time!

As the day goes on a lot of work is getting done! Not much more to do…? My first game jam, so I hope I’m on track.

Backstory: You are the leader of a group of ghosts that attacks a nearby kingdom every night. One night, you forget to attack! The kingdom’s King, sees this as an opportunity to get revenge and attack your fortress! Now you must, with the help of a dragon miner and a ghostling, defend your fortress and destroy theirs! (King will come into play after all of the knight code is done and they cannot do anymore.)

What I have not finished:
– Knight implementation
– King implementation
– Music
– Ghostling coordinates

– castle/fortress HP

– some art
– fixing bugs

What I have finished:
– player movement
– thunderstorm that damages player and knights
– miner
– powerup
– attacking
– most art
– page transitioning
