First LD Finished!

I am happy to have finished my first Ludum Dare. I submitted my compo entry one minute after the deadline (just into the submission hour).

I struggled with Dropbox. I struggled with animated GIFs. I struggled with Unity. Oh how I struggled. But I also learned.

I managed to make a four-player Rocket League like game inspired by Asteroids. You control each ship with two buttons (that’s the theme) to push around an asteroid to score goals for your team.

I give you: Asteroid League

Play it in Unity: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/41693465/Games/asteroid-league/index.html

Vote and give me feedback: http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-34/?uid=61867

Game Basically Working

It basically works! Four players can each use two buttons to score goals on each other.

5 hours to go, time to work on some audio. Then more polish and tweaking.

First Ludum Dare going well.

After taking a long time to decide upon a workable idea, I went with a multiplayer 2D Asteroids version of Rocket League. Players work on teams to try to knock an asteroid into a goal. They control their ship thrusters separately with two buttons.

I made the ships, asteroid, and arena using Unity primitives. I got the physics working well enough and wrote some scripts to control gameplay. I added a bit of visual polish.

Tomorrow I mostly have to do the goal scoring, then all the audio and UI. Hopefully there will be time to improve the controls.

First LD Progressing Nicely

It’s coming along. I call it Asteroid League. It’s like a 2D Rocket League where you punt an asteroid into a goal area. Two teams of two players. Each ship is controlled by two buttons.


(It’s an animated GIF, click on it if it isn’t appearing to animate.)

Starting to look like a game

Darkened the canopy and added a nose cone. The blue stuff in the rear is thrust, using two-button controls.

Two button control is working!

I like my basic ship, but it needed a better way to show off individual colour and team colour. (My idea is multiplayer.) So I added a bit more detail, inspired by Star Wars fighters. I think this is good enough for now, time to start coding.

Made with Unity primitives. Good enough to start coding.

I’m in
