Hello!! I’m ratalaika owner of Ratalaika Games, the month hosters of the next TAG JAm! but

What is TAG Jam?

The Arbitrary Gamejam is a game jam with 3 themes designed to promote small and unknown indie developers.
At the end of each TAG, the submissions are rated by the host.
The person who submitted the best game will be “tagged” and is responsible for hosting the next TAG.

The next TAG Jam will be the weekend before Ludum Dare (6th to 8th)! So what else could be better to warm up for the Ludum Dare that participating in another game jam!! Who knows, maybe you win and you can get more exposure for your site :) !

You can check more about TAG Jam here in the information post in the Ratalaika Games Website! I’ll be posting more information coming to the TAG Jam date :)!!

If you have any doubts feel free to contact me in support@ratalaika.com :)

Well I have been working for almost 8 hours in the gameplay and I made the main puzzle tiles…

That’s how it looks like for now:

You will be a crazy geneticist, your laboratory is in danger!! You must create mutants to defend it, but you must join the DNA quickly!! Or it will be corrupted, you have 10 seconds!! Two more per new DNA fragment.

Here I’m at 4.30 am in my country seeing the night from my window (to few starts sadly today) and after thinking about the theme for the hours I finally decided what I’m going to do!

I think that I’ll stay with a simple puzzle game that I can afford in which you have 10 seconds to solve it. It is not a great idea but I think it fits the theme.

Sleep well folks in the world!

Well, this is the first Ludum dare I will take.

I will use this short of tools:

Language: AS3 (so people can play the game on the web).

Libraries: Spiller for AS3 (A port and improvement on Flixel AS3)

IDE: I will be using MAC and OS X so Flash Builder.

Graphics: Gimp

Music and Sound: For audio I will use bfxr and maybe Audacity.

I hope I can at least achieve something playable :).


I released the spiller-as3 to the public so anyone could use it in case they needed it:



Good Luck to every one!!
