I have made a post compo of my game, The Landscape Processor.

If you wanna try it, go ahead :)

Was the theme supposed to be about killing?

I thought the theme could be interpreted as “An unconventional power” too!

My game, The Landscape Processor seems to be borderline in regards to the theme.

Check it yourself :)

You can click moving things behind windows and it sets them in the background.

An additional theme

We agreed on an additional theme: a poem by Philippe Jaccottet.

additional theme

I raised my eyes.


Behind the window,

amidst the light,

images anyhow pass.


Shuttles or angels of being,

they repair space.

I’m in – 7th TIME ALREADY

Hello everyone,


This is my 7th time participating. The 5th time in a row.

I will be sharing a room, some food and probably many great Belgian beers and a very fine whiskey with my good friends glbs, AnnaGavaldaKedavra and Marcellus. Be sure to check their games too :).

I’m going to use Unity 5 and Visual Studio for the coding part. I recently (re)discovered Krita for drawing stuff so there’s a good chance I use it for drawing. I also often use Inkscape and Blender. LMMS will be my weapon of choice for making sound effects and music with free VSTs found here and there.

I often use a Unity boilerplate of my making for starting quickly. I’m still updating it for Unity 5. I hope to get it done on time.

I will build my game for Windows, Mac and Linux and it’s very likely that there will be a WebGL and a Unity Web Player build.

The source code and assets will be available on this GitHub repo.

Shortly after the submission I will also create a page for the game on my page.


I wish you all the best of luck and fun!





Please don’t vote for “An Unconventional Weapon”.

Hi everyone,

Hope you enjoyed the great games made during this LD!

Here is mine updated so that the final form of the rose can actually be reached :)


See you in four months!

OS/X and Linux

Hello everyone!

If any of you uses OS/X or Linux I would be very happy if you could tell me if my game works on those OS:

I never had a chance to actually test the builds I made for Linux and OS/X and maybe something is missing or I should give instructions or anything.


Thanks :)

Hello everyone!

My friends and I used three more constraints for our games. After a randomization and voting process we ended up with Indirect Control, Leveling and Only Triangles.

We each made a compo that respect the theme of the LD as well as our constraints. It was not easy but I think it actually helped us coming up with different games.

Tell us what you think :)

We might do the same next time but with only one or two constraints only maybe.

Jam and Compo vote

Hi everyone,

Am I the only having a hard time finding Compo entries to rate?
On the main page of ratings: there are always way more jam entries than compos. I don’t like rating jams, I don’t feel it’s the same competition and I often feel like it’s gonna change my expectations, like expect more from games that were actually made by one person. Anyway, my question is: is there anything that displays only compo/jam games? I kinda remember a time where it was possible but I might be mistaken…
