I just uploaded a timelapse for my game Saturday Night Symbiosis.
If you haven’t played the game yet, you still can find it here : http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-30/?action=preview&uid=1874
Some cool people made a game called The Find, which is about fishing some URLs. You should play it (and rate it)
They also made a tool to build our own The Find, with our own links.
So I used it to compile my best ludum dare 29 finds for now (and I included my own game, the one in the screenshot inside the screenshot)
Play/Discover here. (Mash UP to get the fishes)
Also, all of these games are/will be reviewed in french on my blog.
I skipped the last LD (after 7 in a row) and i didn’t realized until now how much I MISSED it.
I had a huge amount of fun/excitation/stress while making this game and I feel refreshed! (Maybe the beer I just opened to celebrate has something to do with it too.)
June 20th is a point & click about birds, seashells and love. I must say I’m quite proud of it since I never put so much content in a game in a single week end (I think). I tried to mix three different interpretations of “Beneath the surface”. I hope it will show.
Here’s the game : http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-29/?action=preview&uid=1874
Can’t wait to play yours (after a good night of sleep)
First of all : here’s my entry, since this is what I’m going to talk about.
Now : How the fuck did this happen ?
Warning, it turned up to be a long story (but there are pictures and all, so it might be fine)
Chapter 1 : The « Awesome » idea
Usually, on Ludum Dare (it’s my 7th), I go to bed early on Friday, then wake up early on Saturday to discover the theme and think about it in a cafe (I’m in France, so the theme is announced at 3 a.m). This time was a bit different though : instead of going to bed, I went to the bar and had some pints. Then some wine. Then some more pints. Maybe a wee too many pints.
I was feeling the theme would be « 10 seconds », so I started thinking about it…and then I had this awesome idea :
What about…10 seconds…in the life of a ROCK ?!
AWESOME, isn’t it ?You know…because rocks live a long long time…so what they would consider to be 10 seconds would be a much much much longer time for us….like a whole lifetime…so I would make a very very long game, while most of LD entries would be very short…funny…
…at least when you’re drunk.
I eventually went to sleep at 2h45 (to avoid spoilers), woke up, and saw I was right : 10 seconds was the theme indeed. Haha ! It was 9 am and I already had my game idea (and what a great idea!) This Ludum Dare was going to be piece of cake ! (sarcastic laugh from future me)
Chapter 2 : Hit by a rock, in the face
Oh Ludum Dare, I missed you so much!
I haven’t released any game since last LD, so I really need to get back on track, it’s now or never (or later, but let’s add some drama) !
This is my 7th Ludum Dare (5th in solo), and I wish it’ll give me some luck!
As usual, I’m planing to use :
-Adventure Game studio
-Magix Music Creator for the music.
And as usual, I’m planing to make a kind of funny/moody visual novel since it’s the only thing I’m able to make.
I’ll be at Montpellier (France) real world gathering if you want to come by and say hello :p
(Go “10 seconds”!)
Since I got some great feedbacks on The Quite Annoying League (Thank you!) I thought some might be interested in a time-lapse and post-mortem. So here they are :
Time Lapse (integration doesn’t seem to work, click the link) :
(some little part are missing, that’s because I used to stop the recording everytime I went out for a cigarettes, and sometimes I forgot to relaunch it when I came back)
I’ve never been that lazy to rate LD entries. On previous LDs I always rated more than 200 games, but strangely, this rating fever has cooled down, and now, I prefer to spend more time on each game and try to give more constructive feedbacks. Maybe it’s for the best.
Anyway, here are my favorites so far, the ones I already reviewed in french on my blog http://oujevipo.fr. This list doesn’t include all of my favorites, some of them (especially Jam entries) being too obvisouly great for needing a little push up. (Sorry for my bad english by the way, I’m not even sure “push up” DOES mean something).
This list doesn’t really care if the game is compo or jam, neither if it fits well the theme but I added this :
: Excellent use of the theme
: Good use of the theme
: bad/no use of the theme
(click the pictures to play/rate)
#1 Cure 48
#2 Tale of Scale
So…there are only 5 days left to rate the game, maybe it’s time for us to write a small post-mortem [EDIT: not that small eventually] in order to explain how we made the BIGGEST GAME in Ludum Dare history! 1,14GigaBytes! Shi*! That’s more than Minecraft!
By the way, you can play and rate the game here!
Post-mortem below! (because it’s big too)
This is it, I rated 100 entries.
Before going on, here’s a list of my 10 favorite (Compo+Jam)
1 – Ages of Irving
2 – Deep See Fish Loves You
3 – Beetlefields : The Forecast
6 – Meow for Mutation
7 – Lucas’s Quest Backwards
10 – 2-deoxyborose
Ours isn’t in the top 10
But you can try it anyway
Also, most of these games were reviewed in french on http://oujevipo.fr
