I’m having a great time going through everyone’s games, and I appreciate all the great feedback. This is only my second time participating in Ludum Dare, but it’s mind-blowing to see the amount of creativity from all over the world.

As far as my own process, I had no idea what I was doing until I sat down and wrote the music on Saturday afternoon. I knew I wanted some sort of multi-track adaptive audio. Perhaps it was going to be a FPS where the player activated statues or an RPG where you interacted with other characters, slowly building up the audio tracks.

In the end, though, my inexperience in creating graphics led me to strip the visual idea down to its bare bones, and just use lights. After that, the rest of the game evolved as one accident after another.

“Oh, those other balls can hit you… That’s kind of interesting I guess.”

Anyway, thanks to all who played (and are still playing).

Here’s a link to Soundcloud where you can download the music.

(I’d embed the SoundCloud player here, but it doesn’t seem to work. Any hints?)

I’m in.
