LDDreamTeam Needs An Artist!

Are you an experienced and talented game jammer? Are you a radass artist that doesn’t want to work alone?

THEN JOIN THE LDDreamTeam!

Ditto and I have teamed up to jump from the 48 hour compo to the 72 hour jam… the logical step after being ‘successful’ as a Ludum Dare solo developer!

Ludum Dare is all about learning… it’s about gaining new experiences… and it’s about challenging yourself. The LDDreamTeam is an effort to branch out and try new things in game development, and while we’re both comfortable with making our own art, we’d love to be joined by a dedicated artist/animator for Ludum Dare 27.

If you’re interested, please contact me at SonnyBone at PhantomGreen dot com or @Phantom_Green on Twitter. Be sure to link me to your previous LD games or your previous game-related work.

LD27 Dream Team Proposal

LD27DreamTeam1

Yo, Ludum Dare folk!

SonnyBone here with an idea that will surely eliminate world hunger, create world peace, and unite all races and religions… all in the name of gaming.

Maybe that’s a bit of a stretch. Maybe not. Can’t hurt to try!

I’ve been doing the Ludum Dare thing for quite some time, but I always end up doing it by myself. I wanna try working with a team, but not just any team. You see, I’m super busy working on a game of my own… a game that will be released commercially sometime next year. I don’t really have the time or energy to do a full-on LD compo, so teaming up with some other developers is a great way to still participate without having to go all out.

But I wanna do somethin’ special. I want to team up with former LD ‘winners’ to create a “Dream Team”.

I have won a bronze medal and two gold medals, and I want to team up with some other medal winners. In fact, you don’t even have to be a medal winner… maybe just top 10 or top 25. I’m looking for LD vets that may want to branch out from the solo game and try a team entry for a change. I’m looking for ‘newbies’ that kicked ass last time… or maybe you have a great portfolio and you want to finally join LD. Basically… I’m looking for something different than what I normally do, and I wanna work with some great coders/designers/artists/etc.

I am down for providing audio (that’s where I won my two gold medals), but I could also help to provide some artwork and OF COURSE some game design ideas / testing.

I am based in the U.S. but I am willing to work with anyone as long as we can communicate effectively.

If nothing comes of this, that’s fine. I’ll still be keeping my eye on what you guys and gals come up with. Ludum Dare is a great learning experience, and it’s always a blast!

If you’re interested, contact me on Twitter @Phantom_Green or email at SonnyBone at phantomgreen dot com
Or leave a comment, maybe. Whatever.

EITHER WAY, TEXT WILL BE READ BY ME

Fractured REMIX + Rad Game Roundup

While playing through the games for Ludum Dare 26, I found an awesome little puzzler called Fractured by dalbinblue. The game features a really rad song that I decided to remix (with dalbinblue’s permission, of course). Check it out on Soundcloud!

I am definitely NOT on schedule. The way that I am implementing the theme is really crucial here… and if I can’t make it work, then I will miss the theme entirely. Jam? Compo? We’ll see what kind of time I have left…

Stage 1 Complete – TIME TO EAT

After screwing around with color palettes for WAAAAAY too long, I finally have something visible.

I have a wonderful idea, but I have no clue if I can make it work.

I may end up submitting to the jam because I really don’t have much time this weekend.

OH WELL…

LOVING This Theme Right Now

Posted by (twitter: @Phantom_Green)

This is the theme I was rooting for. LOVIN’ IT!

I have a really rad idea, and all of my previous plans for this LD fell apart in the final hours leading up the compo… so this theme is really going to help me out. I have limited time this weekend, so I can use this theme to my advantage!

SEE YOU ON THE FLIP SIDE

Looking To Collaborate On LD26

Hey everyone! SonnyBone here…

I said that I would not be competing in any more Ludum Dare competitions until my commercial game is released, but I lied a bit. I’m not going to be creating a game on my own, that’s for sure… but I’m willing to work with a talented team to provide audio.

My LD23 game earned a gold medal for audio, and my LD25 entry came in 4th.

You can check out my previous LD games HERE
And you can download the songs I created for my LD games HERE

If you’re interested, leave a comment here with your previous work/experience… or contact me directly HERE

I wanna work with some rad and talented dudes/dudettes that are familiar with Ludum Dare. Let’s do this!
