The time-lapse video of the development of my game is finally uploaded. Also, please check it out and leave me a comment with your feedback. I’d love to hear what you think about my game :-)

First day results are in!

here is my game so far:  www.martinbeierling.de/LD34 (Unity’s WebGL export works well now. I was really surprised!!)

The procedural generation took the most time, again. There will be more to the game in the end (hopefully):

  • 4 different modes with seperate highscores,
  • Pause-Window,
  • improved and interated models, textures and animations,
  • sound

I streamed the whole day at my twitch: twitch.tv/mBeierling (there should be an on demand video live now, if you care to re-watch this 😉 ). I will create a complete time-lapse after day 2.

Now it is time for a little nap to start with a fresh brain with day 2!! Goodnight, y’all!

Coffee, rolling balls and streaming bytes of video-data

Good morning, folks! (it’s morning at my place at least 😉 )

My game will be this (pic of my whiteboard with the game cornerstones):

My second Ludum Dare! I’m really excited to start creating something over the next 48 hours.

My tools will be Unity 5.3 (yes, I want to test the multi scene feature ;-)), bfxr and as a Programmer I don’t really know what graphics software I’ll be using yet. Any suggestions? I was thinking about paint.net.

I’ll also be streaming and creating a time-lapse video of my development in the end. My twitch is twitch.tv/mBeierling. Maybe see you in the chat!

Happy gamedev everybody!


Timelapse and my first compo entry, so happy! :-)

I had a really cool weekend and completed my game. Please rate and comment: http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-31/?action=preview&uid=28616


Sadly, I lost the video file of the first day, so this is just the second day with 64x speed.

Setup completed, next up: actual game loop

3D bug of my intentional 2D hexagons


3D bug of my intentional 2D hexagons. looks kinda cool


current state

What is my game capable of by now? It creates a real hexagon grid with customizable hexagon size, columns and rows. It links them up in a data structure and I use this to get all possible paths from one start point (on the left) to one end point (on the right). I will pre-calculate around 1 million possible paths now while I am eating some sweet fondue! Those paths will then be used in the actual game loop. More about that later!

Another “Firsty”, give me liquids!

I will be doing my first Ludum Dare this time. As many of you might know, you always want to participate, but family, work and other life-stuff always is a lot of pressure to simply ignore for one weekend.

This weekend, I will try to ignore it as much as I can and develop. I can’t wait to finally start a new project from scratch and make something that will be finished in two days. I had a lot of stuff that was long-term work in the last months.

It is very important to forget anything serious from time to time and let your creativity flow!!

I will use the tools I am comfortable with:

  • Unity + VS2013
  • PyxelEdit and Paint.net
  • SFXR

See you on the other side!
