The Balance : mission complet.

Hey !

We’ve managed to submit in the 48h timing, it was quite a challenge but we did it.

I figure we have achieved the peaceful, contemplative and eye candy aspect of the game. I still think the game could much better with another level of gameplay, it was hard not to break the contemplative side : death, bonus and such could easily ruins the simple pleasure of moving.


But i do have many ideas for solving this, maybe abe will be ok for spending another 48h to polish it and expand the experience.
Also, the game would be really sweet on touch device, unfortunately with the use of shaders, a simple port won’t be easy.
I’ll try to figure out how we could make an android build of it.

If you have some feedback, i’ll be happy to ear about your feeling upon the experience : how many level did you played ? Did you find the “burst” (click to boost) ?

thank you all, this year again, it s been a pleasure to ludum with you all.
Bisou to you.

So, 6H left, it’s seems like we’re gonna have some extra time to polish and package the game.
Reuno is designing an awesome website and a webservice to enhance the overall experience.
Kuru is painting the intro (featuring our multi-layer god aka black budha jesus, compatible with EVERY religion !).
Abe is tuning things and stuff.

Line, my love, is baking muffins for everybody.


On my side, i’m polishing the chara designs, animations, bitmap assets and the UI.

Wanna have a sneak pick ?

Click Me !


The original game design is 90% done, we will wisely use those 6 last our.
Godspeed Ludumers !
We love you.

Hey dear Ludumers and ludumettes !
We’re having a great time, everything is going great, i think we will be able to finish our jam in 48h (which was our goal).

The gameplay is pretty contemplative, we will let you choose to the balance between good and evil. As balance guardian you’ll have to guide life’s evolution.

Will you be a naughty demon or or cute paladin ?

Click To test !

Mouse control + Click to burst.

luduuuum !

So, a few word about the game design. Rainbow riding hood is going to be a platform shooter with a touch of introspection.

Will you be able to rules the 7 Riding hoods ?
How many weapons will you manage to combo Boost ?

We’ll be posting the prototype in a bunch of hour.

Mean while push the sound and have a slice of the 6th music layer.
Bring da noiz !

Keep it groovy

tic tac, the clock is running.

Unfortunatly for us, Abe’s netbook keep on crashing, his punny laptop couldn’t handle the hight level of awesomeness we trying to make him compil.

The engin still needs many tweaks before beeing able to be concider as prototype.
I guess those hardware issues are part of the challenge.

Anyway Mr Aries have finish the first music layer :
Have a loook !

For my part i m starting animations and content variation in order to generate our levels.

sorry, this lib viewing is a crappy but it stills give you a little update.

Take and keep the good work !

(definitly a great experience sharing this wek end with you mates)

First screen !

Here come the first screenshot, with start a bit late but the game design seems pretty clear in mind.

i think i m gonna stick with this simple cartoonish style in roder to be able to produce the amazingly huge number of assets i wanna inclued.


Can’t want to see those gfx inclued in the engine.

Let’s JAM !
