Pyrofoux (me)« Hi Min  !  I mean… « I’m in. » » – Pyrofoux


Ludum Dare is world’s biggest magic tournament.

Game-Wizards from all over the world came here to show their skills in using mysterious languages to make beautiful things to happen.

I don’t know a lot of Game-Spells.

I didn’t read a lot of Scrolls of Gamdev.

I don’t have the best Stuff-Programs.

I can only create mini Game-minions.

But in each Game I create, I try to make something different. Something different from what you can see in usual Game-Minions.

I mean… I really love usual Games. But I want my Games to surpass their conditions of Games. I want them to pass the definition of Games.

This is why, a an apprentice wizard like me will join the Ludum Dare !

I’m Pyrofoux ! I use…

HTML5 as my book of magic Game-spells !

Paint.net as my color scrolls !

Notepad++ as my circle of invocation !

CgMusic & GXSCC as my illusions ingredients !

It’s going to be hard. It’s going short. It’s going to be… awesome.


What is Ludum Dare really

That’s me ! Pyrofoux !

I’m here to reestablish the truth: the Ludum Dare is not as it seems !

You thought that Ludum Dare was a 48h gamejam ?  Haha, you’re wrong !

Let’s calculate :

  • The ideal sleep time for a human is 10 hours a day. LD id 2-day long. 2*10 = 20 hours
  • Since we’re gamedevs, we always eat pizza.  5 pizza a day is the minimum ! It was proven that the perfect time to savor a pizza is 37 minutes. 5*37 = 185 minutes = 3 hours 5 minutes
  • To know the LD theme, we must waking up at midnight the 24 August. A old prophecy said that those who wake up the 24th August at midnight will catch a disease that will make you go to the bathroom every two hours.  Counting the average time used to purchase toilet paper, this is 16 minutes lost every two hours.  6*48/2 = 384 minutes = 6 hours 24 minutes.
  • The sect of direct sellers has chosen to launch its massive attack “Waste Of Time Ha-Ha-Ha ” the 25th. She will ate 3 hours and 31 minutes of your time.
  • The psychological consequences of what you will experience this day will make you go 2.4 times slower.

To summarize:

48h – (20h+ 3h5min + 6h24min + 3h31min) = 15 hours.

You have only 15 hours to make a game, including dressing, watching cats on the internet, sing this song playback ….

It’s impossible to make a good game for LD. But…

Who are we  ?


What we do?


How we do it ?



PS : Make a game :)

I’m in. You too.

You don’t like Minimalism ? You think it’s impossible to make a good game with this theme ? Minimalism is a style, not a theme ? You like potatoes ? You don’t like potatoes ?

Check my entry,  Theme Satisfactor to see how it’s hard to satisfy everybody. It also include a Realistic version !

We still still need you to rate ALL games in that mega-awesome-cool-fun-pixelated-incredible-ness Mini Ludum Dare #40 !

And don’t forget : play more games ! (and rate)

Some details for my game

Posted by (twitter: @Pyrofoux)
Saturday, February 23rd, 2013 12:12 pm

This Mini Ludum Dare #40 was my first Ludum Dare and my first Competition.  I loved that experience and I will repeat this as soon as possible.

It was a “McGyver” game : I had not much time, not much ressources, and I don’t speak English daily. But daily I play games, I make games and I think games.


My game is weird, and hardly playable (like my other games haha), but that was fun to create it.  In french we say “jouer le jeu” (“play the game”)  when there is nobody to control if you respect the rules. This is one of the foundations of my game.

The main challenge was to  transpose game rules (reward, death) in real life.

Say hello to  Survive in real world ! :)

I’m probably in.

So… This will be my first LD.

I surely would not have much time to make a game (HTML5+JS) but… I’ll try. And this the main.
