Hey all,

Less then 10 hours remain for voting.
I’m close to 100 rated games and I wanted to share five games that I enjoyed or otherwise found worthwhile!
Disclaimer, the order of games is random.

First day over, I had to scrap my first idea because it was becoming too big.
Started over with this little puppy:








And got it ingame:

Was an interesting day since I also had to attend a birthday party. :)
I wish everyone good luck!

Code Flashdevelop + Flashpunk + FLOD
Graphics: MyPaint + GIMP + GraphicsGale + Paint.net + PyxelEdit
Sound Audacity + BFXR + MilkyTracker
Other OGMO, Sorceress’ Countdown Clock

Good luck to everyone entering!

All by myself

Let’s have a good one. ^_^

It’s almost a game.


Code: 80%
Graphics: 70%

Sound: 0%
Music 0%

Will need all of tomorrow to get this done but we will succeed.

Also this is the Wonton Soup we had today, it was really good though the picture doesn’t do it justice.

First screenshot finally (forgot to post because of a busy weekend), we are working on graphics at the moment.
Will be posting a new screenshot soon without programmer art.

Still need to think of a cool name, bad at names. :(

We’re in for the Jam.

Coding: Flashdevelop + Flashpunk
Graphics: MyPaint + GraphicsGale + Paint.net + PyxelEdit

Good luck everyone!

Others may think that Potato isn’t a very good theme.
They may be right, but they may be wrong.
As always we’ll try to incorporate it in our game for McFunkypants’ Challenge.
That being said we’re excited to participate in this Ludum Dare.
Obviously Potato is a joke theme, it would never win in the Theme Voting. 😉

Let’s go for 5000 games in 2012

I wish everyone good luck!
You are the villain!

MiniLD #34 Postmortem

Posted by (twitter: @sparrowspell)
Thursday, May 31st, 2012 12:40 pm

*edit, added hardcore mode to the game

I finally finished a LD game, it’s classic Pong with half of the screen cut off to fit the theme Aspect.
Is it normal to do a Post-Mortem for a mini-LD? I’ll do it anyway.

The good:

  • Easy graphics, was done with it very fast.
  • I learned new techniques to accomplish a couple of codes in an easier way.
  • I have all the programs I need to finish a game and a nice workflow.

The bad:

  • Diablo 3 and Firefall BETA. I couldn’t leave it alone so I had to make my game in the time I had when my friends weren’t online.


I had fun making Pong which is one of my favourite childhood games. The theme was good and it gave me a lot of ideas.
I choose for Halfpong because it uses the theme to add difficulty to the game.

I hope to complete more LDs in the future!

Still warming up…

…but I’m in! Probably JAM!

I’ll be using:

  • Flashdevelop
  • Flashpunk
  • GraphicsGale
  • PyxelEdit
  • OGMO Editor
  • LMMS
  • Audicity
  • and all that I forgot 😀

I’m doing the warmup, but haven’t had a lot of time this week.
I chose the theme space since I’ve never made a game in space.

try it here

Not much going on yet, you fly using your mouse.
There’s a star to the right of where you spawn.

Can’t wait ’til the weekend, meanwhile I’ll try to fix this puppy up and make a game out of it yet.

Hey there,

We’ve got the code to 70% and art at 40% done.
We’ve made a little screenshot with our hero in it.

The story is about a hermit who survives on his own and wants to be left alone.

Here’s our dinner:

Our little guardian has just devoured an intruder entering our danger room:

Hi there!

I’m entering the LD jam with my brother.
We’ll be using:

  • Flashdevelop
  • Flashpunk
  • Ogmo Editor
  • Gimp
  • BFXR + Audacity
  • Musagi


We got our idea ready and already have some base code.
In the next post we’ll probably have a screenshot.

Meanwhile here’s our breakfast:

And the guardian to our workplace:


Happy LD-ing everyone!
