I’ve updated the page of my 48h entry, Tribe of the Giant, with a link to the postmortem.

I finished and released Tribe of the Giant for the 48h compo. This was a lot of fun to make, yet also very tedious. I changed gameplay ideas often throughout the course of the weekend, and only on Sunday afternoon had an idea where I was going with it. It turned out well, though!

I recorded a timelapse which I’ll turn into a video. Hope you enjoy the game!

This was my first entry to Ludum Dare, which was stressful but a lot of fun!

Ocean RESCUE is a game where you control a boat on a mission to rescue survivors in the ocean. There is a large sea creature that hunts you, hungry for the survivors you are trying to save. The boat is limited by fuel, though it can refill when you return to base.

I’m currently reading “Dune” by Frank Herbert, so the concept of a large sea creature rising up is somewhat inspired by the sandworms of Dune.
