Ten Seconds – Post Mortem

This was my first Ludum Dare.

I really wanted to make something in time for the compo, but it wasn’t to be. I’ve just not been coding enough lately, so most of the weekend was taken up with working through the crafty.js tutorial instead so as to avoid having to code something up from scratch like an idiot. I stuck a pin in a Wikipedia entry. Since you ask. Yes I should have done all that last week. No I didn’t. Bad me. No cookie.

Anyway, I managed to finish something approximating a game. It may be the only entry in either the compo or jam that contains a reference to The Wurzels. If it isn’t, please get in touch. I want to play the other games that reference The Wurzels. Badly.

Here’s a screenshot, FW little IW:


You can play it here. It’s not particularly good. The source is even worse. My First Javascript Project. Good for schadenfreude if you’re into that kind of stuff. But even so it’s a game, and I made it, and I’m grateful to Ludum Dare for giving me the kick in the appropriate place to get something up and running.

Plus, Wurzels reference. That has to count for something.

Oh, and thank you all for your far better games. I’m enjoying them. Especially the ones that I can get to run :)
