I’m in – second time

Friday, August 22nd, 2014 2:55 pm

Woot woot. I’m in again! Just like first time – I have very low expectations. I haven’t been training anything between LD29 and LD30 so my game is going to be super simple.

Using Construct 2 again. Bfxr for the audio. For pixel art I’m using Construct’s own image editor.

This time I’m going to try a little bit harder to get all the features I want to the game. In my first LD – I actually discarded most of the game features during the development as I realized they would consume too much time to implement.

My goal in first Ludum Dare was just to finish game – no matter how simple it was. I accomplished that goal. This time my goal is to get better rank than my first LD game.

Good luck and have fun! :)

Woot woot, Done!

This was my first game ever. Well, I can’t say it’s something that I planned in the first place but… it’s certainly something… Better than nothing, at least. Here’s some screenshots from the final game:

This was an awesome experience! I really learned a lot. I have a feeling that this won’t be the last Ludum Dare I’m participating :)

I’m looking forward to see your awesome entries!



Day one complete

Phew… day one complete.

During the first day, there was a lot of things that I’ve never tried before – for example doing pixel ‘art’. Most of the day went watching and reading tutorials how I can do this and that.

So far, I think I have deleted 2/3 of all content I’ve created. Some things just didn’t work out so I recreated them or just scratched entirely. During the day, my game just became simpler and simpler – mostly because of my limited skills. Currently the game is just about jumping ladders up and reaching the top. There is water in the game which player should avoid. Water surface level is getting higher all the time. So basically this game is about
jumping ladders and avoid getting into water / beneath the surface. I know the is veeeery loosely based on theme.. but this what I started working on and I don’t have time to start again from scratch.

Most of the graphics are just some colored boxes and there’s no background… and water is green :). So the graphics are the main focus tomorrow. Most of the game logic is already done.

Here’s the screenshot:

Good night.

Participating for first time

Friday, April 25th, 2014 3:13 pm

I’m in! This is my first time in Ludum Dare. And to be honest, I’ve never done any game before. Sure, I have done programming and stuff but still, I kinda have low expectations for this because most likely I’m not going to finish. But, finish or not, this is going to be a great experience :)

I’m going to use Construct 2, GIMP, Paint.NET, BFXR, Audacity and possibly some other software (I think it’s not necessary to list all software used, but I’m just going with the flow as everybody else is listing their tools :) )

Good luck and have fun!
