Loving the theme so far and have a good idea!


A last second I’m in post

Posted by (twitter: @ThePurpleDonut)
Friday, December 14th, 2012 6:44 pm

I have been very busy lately and almost forgot Ludum Dare! I got home ten minutes ago and have made up my mind to do this. My third Ludum Dare thus far and I think that all the themes are great. To mix it up I will be utilizing my biggest weakness, Sounds, to be the cornerstone of my my game because I will learn a lot more about this subject…


IDE: FlashDevelop

Language: AS3 (for the win)…

Library: FlashPunk

Graphics: Pyxel edit or paint.net

Sound: Musescore (found it to be very good)…

Fifteen minutes left and getting ready, Good luck to you all!


A small idea about the ratings

Posted by (twitter: @ThePurpleDonut)
Sunday, December 9th, 2012 12:55 pm

Don’t run away yet! I know that the ratings system has been analyzed by many people and want the underlying system to change, but I just think we should change a small part. I have done two Ludum Dares previously and look forward to this one, except it always makes me mad when people don’t comment on your game after rating it. To make Ludum dare more of a learning experience I believe that to leave a rating, you should have to leave a comment. This would allow us to know any strange outcomes on even more platforms and have a greater idea of how the general public would think about this game. This would also block against people that would just post low scores and not play the games either to advance themselves in the leaderboard, or just get a lot of ‘coolness’. An example of this system is the website codeproject.com where you must leave a comment when you rate an article a 3 or lower. This is just my ramble of this Ludum Dare, but I hope someone else feels the same way.

End of day 1/2 the game is ‘evolving’…

My game so far...

Art is comin along nicely and my code hasn’t completely exploded anything yet so i consider this a success so far…Goodnight for now Ludum Dare!

This time around i will be participating in the Jam compo with three other people. Not too sure what tools there using but I do know that AS3 and flashpunk will be used and they will be amazing! (I’m doing code)…This is the first game jam im doing with Ubuntu Linux as my operating system and I think it will be the most successful…Overall i cant wait and am ready to go!!!

Is it really about the voting?

I haven’t been a Ludum Dare’r for very long but what I have noticed is that the point of this isn’t winning. Ludum dare is an excuse to make a game for two days straight. Its a way to bring all Indie game makers together. Its a reason to try new tools and work different ways. I think of the rating system as a reason to play all the games people have put time into to create. There will be a winner, and it must be fun to be that winner, but thats not the only reason you should enter. So to sum up, Lets make a game, a fun game this Ludum Dare, because we can and because we should. The ratings are what they are, but the game you make will always be yours…

My Moose, Its done!

It only took five days longer than the competition ran for, but now Mars Moose is done…with particle effects and all that fun stuff…Please feel free to PLAY it or DOWNLOAD the source code (FlashPunk). As always i can’t wait till the next ludum dare…Its coming up!!

Feeling inspired…Need Feedback…

I just finished watching “Indie Game, The movie”, and felt like Doing something new…I really enjoyed the movie and think that anyone who has been to this website should see it…Maybe its the monster that I had but I kinda want to make a big project too.  It seems like alot of work compared to what i do now (work on something till i get bored then pretend its done), but it looks to be much more rewarding.

SO…Im really looking to see if someone thinks that this is a reasonable quest and if so what should i make and if so would you actually download this… (Im thinking along the lines of a new version of puzzle game, i like those)… If you actually read my entire rant about this I thank you very much…
