HTML5 Demo


So far I learned a whole bunch about TypeScript and I managed to implement a deterministic random-access PRNG in it. (Although that was probably unnecessary)

However, not much game design actually happened.

ReactorScram Ludum 37 base code

I’m looking to do this one in JS, which is totally new to me, and an optional server in Go which is also totally new.

ReactorScram’s base code is here:


It’s Affero AGPLv3. Someday I’ll make a proper release… right as soon as I make money off my games.


Declaring a CC asset I might use

Almost forgot!

I got this public-domain model from OpenGameArt:


And modified it slightly to add the EL wires and split off the headlights and taillights. The resulting files are here:



My modifications are under CC attribution-share-alike.

Base code for LD35

A pitch-black Lamia

I’m declaring this base code for LD35, because I might use Colorado.

It’s all C++ / Lua, all Affero AGPLv3.

version 9.0.0 of the Colorado graphics classes:


version 0.1.0 of the TERF Tar-Extracting Readonly Filesystem (PhysFS replacement)


version 0.1.0 of “Pitch Black” which is the game I want to make:


Is this cheating? Maybe. Maybe.

Base Code for LD 33

Unless I change something, I’ll be using the Colorado version that Super Jet Racing 3.3 used.

The game, and Colorado, are available here: https://digitaldoge.duckdns.org/super-jet-racing/

I’ll probably make incremental updates to TERF, and I want to redo the mesh format but honestly for desktop it’ll be okay.

Code is all AGPLv3.

I couldn’t get IPFS to work so this is my backup game:

I got it working!

Here is the code:


Here is an image I drew in the image editor and uploaded:

I’m in!

I’ll be using:

* MS Paint for 3D models
* Corel WordPerfect for code editing
* vi for sound effects

I’m making a game for the Palm Z22. You will need an IR transmitter to upload the game to the PDA. The game will be free for the first 30 days.

For this LD, I want to use InterPlanetary FileSystem, so I wrote an image editor that lets you draw a picture and upload it.

Unfortunately it doesn’t work, but I’m publishing it anyway.


The part that doesn’t work is connecting to IPFS. I’m trying to run IPFS as a portable application, inside the game directory, but doing this causes the upload to fail.

The drawing widget seems to work fine.

This code is GNU Affero GPLv3.

Here’s a picture I drew for the occasion:

I got all my base code ready to start on MiniLD 57, here’s some concept art:


Don’t know what it will be called yet, but it should be fun to make!

I might also use a few files from LD28 that I haven’t integrated into Colorado yet:


Particularly vbo.lua and shader.lua which wrap some lower-level OpenGL stuff as Lua objects.

I’m using the latest version of Colorado:


which has all the latest features from Jet Racing (originally my LD27 game) and it has the Lua bindings from Byte Raider, my LD28 game.

Colorado depends on OpenGL 2, PhysFS, SDL 1.2, SDL_Mixer, and GLM, so I’m using all those, too.

For MiniLD 53, I’m making a Battleship game which can also transfer files.In the future, you can copy a file from one computer to another.
