Mind the Gap

My friend Matt and I just recently submitted our game entitled Mind the Gap. It’s about an explorer who does exactly the opposite of the title of the game, and finds himself plunging down a seemingly endless hole. More your explorer left and right, avoid everything in your way all while making sure you don’t hit the walls. You may even be able to escape!

This is our first real Ludum Dare, so we hope you all enjoy the game. We’re open to any criticism, good or bad.

I’d also like to thank all the organizers and participants of this Ludum Dare. It was an awesome experience, and the next can’t come soon enough.


Play here:

And since you all like pretty pictures, here are a few. Enjoy the game!

This will be my first real Ludum Dare, and I plan to do with with my friend Matt. We’ve done Mini Ludum Dare, Asylum Jam, and Indie Speed run already. Our setup will more than likely be:

  • Engine: Unity
  • Sounds: Bfxr
  • Graphics: Pickle

I’ve written up a post about it on my blog and plan to write up a detailed postmortem after the fact.

Good luck everyone, I can’t wait to see what you all make!

It’s been a fun weekend, hopefully I can partake in another again sometime.

Here’s our entry!
