I’ve done the compo twice before, but this is the first time I’ll be entering the jam, working together with cool James.

He’s never done it before and is super nervous, but I’m going to be gentle since it is his first.

Depending on the theme, we’ll be using as3 + flashpunk, c# + player.io, and probably bfxr for the audio.


P.S. cool James says he is going to use photoshop to make art and “perhaps it will be animated in that Spriter thing. WHO KNOWS.”

This here is some super-white snow.

or at least, I’ve not got tilemaps properly being transferred to clients.

I think I might have broken the server when I linked it in #ludumdare though, so I need to fix it so that multiple rooms are joined, rather than everyone piling in on the same one.

This is getting tricky to debug.

A feeling of almost indescribable happiness

is sort of what happens when you make a multiplayer game, put it on the internet, and can see other people’s tiny avatars moving around, and know that the netcode is working.


This is the link for the game at the moment and it’s unlikely to change in the future, so any and all updates over the weekend will be posted there. In the meanwhile, there are tiny faces moving around!

I’m in!


I’ll be using Flashpunk, and Player.IO for multiplayer if it fits with the theme.


I’m really excited.

Almost done!

I was getting worried about not being able to procrastinate and still feel produce.


On a related note: spiders are a bitch to animate. So many legs!

  1. Think about ideas
  2. Discard main idea
  3. Be inspired by some squiggles
  4. Start writing out the design, thinking about the tech
  5. Make joke in IRC
  6. Start making game based on said joke
  7. Program
  8. Design
  9. Sound
  10. Program
  11. ???
  12. Profit!

Welp, espionage came in last. Anyway, getting started on an idea I just came up with now. Should be good enough, hoping to get some mileage out of art style. Boy is this post going to be embarrassing if I end up running out of time and skimping on art.
