We are very tired.

Started at 9 o’clock (LD start was at 2 o’clock) in the morning.
We where totally surprised about the theme.
But no problem, i love challenges!

So here are the first screenshot about our game…


a simple room. :-)

It will be our 2nd participation.
The first time it was very cool and instructive.
We learned also a lot from your comments (thx) and hope we got enough time to include everything.

Our tools:

– Eclipse with libgdx
– SourceTree for Git (bitbucket)
– Spriter (hope we can implement the project file)
– PyxelEdit
– Tiled

until Saturday

every-time a working game – post mortem

World 1 of post combo version

World 1 of post ludum version

Befor the Jam 

The combo started for us on 2 o’clock am on Saturday. We started to think about the theme on Friday.
I personally has preferred “growing” for a puzzle game. But when the final voting starts “planet”, “space”, “worlds” came up.
I also translated  the themes in swissgerman and ask my son’s (9) for a game in mind.
The best was chaoscleaning the Child’s Bedroom.
For Connected Worlds it was something with a elevator.

Inside the Jam

We start on 8 o’clock. While  I was driving to Sammakko, the closing elevator door was spooking around in my mind.
Our goal was every-time a working game.
So we started with 3 screens (intro, game and end-screen) and keep them running.
We think about using  Tiled for our main tool to build the worlds without knowing anything about it [-], a big mistake.
The end of the first JAM day was on 2 0’clock in the morning.

I was creating the animation live on twitch the hole afternoon [-].
Loosing a lot of time.

Normal working until 4 o’clock pm, then starting to build content until 1 o’clock.
During the night I ask [+] dark3zz if he can help us with a matching background music from his archive. He gave us this beautiful peace of music.
**Thank You**


[-] never played around with the Tiled Map Editor
[-] never created a animation with Pyxel
[-] not jamming with kids around you

[+] ask dark3zz for background music
[+] Teamwork
Keep the game running


It was a funny and very interesting experience.
