Hey, somebody sent me pictures from when we were drawing the sprites for our game with pencil and paper. It was one of the most fun parts of the process. Here they are:

Kaiser Dolphant

Little Kaiser

The little Kaiser is based on mexican president, Enrique Peña Nieto.

Bride Dolphant

Animated bride

Our game, Kaiser, can be found here.
Happy holidays everybody!

Our first game. A web game for the jam.

We are a rock band from Mexico. We made a web videogame to enter the JAM of the 31 edition of the Ludum Dare. We used Kaiser, a song from Human Stalings, our first EP as the main drive of the game. The game makes a connection between the dissent at the way things are supposed to be in life and the way things are supposed to be in the game. All this occurs through the experience of a runaway bride, which makes sense for the song.

We only had three days to produce the game, so we decided to make a game with arcade like mechanics, with certain difficulty that offered players a real challenge, while also providing a serious twist on the common themes and graphic styles of arcade like games.

The theme of this Ludum Dare was “Entire game on one screen”, so we made a game where everything except the player can leave the screen. In that way, we also made the player a heroine struggling to survive, instead of the traditional hero guy who powers over every obstacle to achieve his goals; that way the desperation to survive completes the idea of the player struggling against the rules of the game. The game offers an exit to this survival experience: if the player is skilled enough, he can destroy the screen, and do away with the game.

You can play it here.

Thanks for playing : )

Is adding a touch joystick for handheld devices cheating?

I made a web game. I didn’t have time to implement proper touch controls. I want to add a touch joystick so the game is more playable in phones. Is it some kind of cheating? Would that be considered cheating?

I’ll be using javascript and html5 canvas. Probably Phaser.js, but maybe not, depending on how well its physics works.

I think I’ll be using music from my band, Dolphant. You can use our music too, it has a CC license: https://soundcloud.com/dolphant

Good luck to you all.
