Hey there,
I enjoy making a game and releasing it on the internet.
Playing games is fun but having made one is even more so.

That's why i decided to join Ludum Dare, Plus Quill18 helped a little with that decision (his videos on YouTube).

Done for this Ludum dare

Sunday, December 11th, 2016 6:21 pm

I have worked hard,tried my best and the result is here. This will be my entry for this ludum dare. Quite positive about the result except for the fact that I wanted a little more from the gameplay.

Check it out yourself here : http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-37/?action=preview&uid=37570



LD36 Compo over ! How did it go??

Monday, August 29th, 2016 9:46 am

Yesterday i finsihed my fifth ludum dare compo.

Proud as always that I am capable of creating a ‘game’ in 48 hours.

Though its nothing to some on this site who create amazing games.

Getting better every time and learning a lot. had a lot of fun this weekend.

untill next times folks.

You can check the game out here : http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-36/?action=preview&uid=37570





I am in! (?my 5th time?)

Monday, August 22nd, 2016 12:50 pm

I believe this is going to be my fifth time joining the ludum dare jam. And I am more desperate then ever to make an awesome game!

I’ll be using Unity 5.* again. As it is an easy to use game Engine. (At some point I will use my own game engine when i finish it ).

The rest of the tools will likely be.

  • blender
  • adobe photoshop
  • google
  • notepad++
  • anything else

hard to say  which tools I will be using ’cause mostly which tools rely on what kind of game I am making.

I wish all of you good luck and more importantly have fun.




Did some shader testing

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016 7:28 pm

while trying out some different shader things i came across a cool way to make water move ‘semi-realistic’.

its a little harder to see in this ‘.gif ‘ . When actually in ‘Game’ it is certainly noticeably moving water.

pretty convincing don’t you think?? :)

In for this one

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016 7:28 am

lets see if I am capable of finishing it this time.


I will be using the following:


Unity 5.0

notepad++ (for cool HTML or any sort of text files i might need to write)


adobe Photoshop


That’s it. I will be streaming the hole thing upcoming weekend which ,

will probably be uploaded in a shorter version to YouTube.


Good Luck too anyone joining in


Don’t forget to have FUN!

LD34 jam

Saturday, December 12th, 2015 9:13 pm

been busy all day and now i am very tired. but all that work pays off, with some basic unpolished gameplay features in place for this ludumdare. all though i still got a lot to work on for tommorow as the gameplay is really rubbish . anyways here is a screenshot.



and with that said, i am going to bed right know. night night.

illness and that just before LD34

Monday, December 7th, 2015 9:55 am

So I “kinda” claimt I wanted to use my own engine this time around. Unfortunatly I got ill this weekend. So now it’s going to be hard to finish the engine.  I also had problems with the opengl rendering wich I couldn’t get working so my definitive choice will go out to the unity game engine.

if anyone wants to help working on my game engine , then let me know and maybe i will put it on github or something…

Anyways have a wonderfull Ludumdare.

I am in

I am going to join this ludum dare for the third time. I hope to have a great time building my game as always. I were very proud of the last games i made. This time tho I am going to give some update posts on how my development is going.

i am going to use the following tools:

-Unity Game engine (for 2D and 3D games whatever i will decide it to be)

Capture-Adobe Photoshop – for 2D graphics or textures.

-Audacity for audio recording.

-Blender for 3D modelling if need be.

That is my setup this time around. Hope you all have a good time and

good luck to everyone out there going to join on this event .

ohh and on the side  are what i think about the final themes and what i voted for  !

Greetings Nigel (BarinkSocial )
