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: http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-31/?action=preview&uid=9596

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 :)

Constraints

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.

Hi everyone,

Am I the only having a hard time finding Compo entries to rate?
On the main page of ratings: http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-31/ 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…

Thanks!

Sixth

Hi everyone,

I’m joining the 31st Ludum Dare. It’s the 4th time in a row that I’m joining and the 6th time overall! It’s ridiculous how much I love doing the Ludum Dare. Sometimes I wonder why because I don’t think that I’m really good at making games in a short time frame but the pressure and motivation to actually make something good in 48h is so strong that I just can’t live without it. I live for the thrill. LOL, I’m kidding, in fact it’s because I get to spend the whole weekend with my friends. In the end it reminds me of the gaming weekends I used to spend with friends when I was a kid.

SO, yes, glbs, Anna and Marcellus will be there too and we’ll each be joining the compo.

We’ll probably be using an additional constraint such as a genre or a technical limitation as well as the theme of course. We feel like we could do better with stronger constraints :)

My choice of tools will include:

  • Unity coupled with MonoDevelop.
  • A bit of Inkscape, Paint.net, GraphicsGale and Blender depending on the concept.
  • LMMS for sounds and music.
  • Licecap for making gifs.
  • All my code and assets will be hosted on my Github account.

I wish you all the best of luck and hope we all make very cool games!

In each one of these games I’ve found something that really stands out.
