…but we need gameplay!

My traffic light simulator is ready

Have you ever heard the history of traffic lights? The world’s first, manually operated gas-lit traffic signal was short lived. Installed in London in December 1868, it exploded less than a month later, injuring or killing its policeman operator. Luckily, mankind has progressed since the 19th century, but what if you were the operator of the now ancient technology: manual traffic lights?

My ancient technology is manual traffic lights (Did you know that the first traffic light killed one person when it exploded?)

Alright, they can fly, they can follow what I’m telling them to do, and they can fire rockets at a target on the ground!

If you are out of ideas…

…I’ve thought about the following:

  • James Bond underwater car
  • Osprey Simulator
  • A-team van combined with Airwolf helicopter

…so feel free to steal them if you are out of ideas, because I’m going with another idea! It will not be easy, but as a certain Kennedy said:

We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win.

Santa Claus Down

This is the deal: Santa Claus is down. I repeat: Santa Claus is down! To save Christmas you have to deliver the packages with your growing truck.

…is stop and go to sleep when everything is working as you want – then it’s easier to get started in the morning. I’ve had a terrible few hours with a failed road algorithm, but now I have another idea for tomorrow that will hopefully work out much better!

Growing plants…

…or growing trucks? Anyway, up at 7AM on a Saturday :S #eurotrash. Brainstorming until 9AM, came up with ideas like growing crops on Mars and various crazy things, but ended up with growing trucks. I have no idea where this is going to end up…

What I learned from the last competitions was to spend more time making the game fun. So the idea is to make something more simple and then spend a lot of more time making it more fun!

This is me in about 16 hours

Monster Truck vs Aliens is finished!

Posted by (twitter: @eriknordeus)
Sunday, August 23rd, 2015 2:52 pm

I’m finished! After the last Ludum Dare (when I crashed and burned) I had nightmares before this weekend (about someone stealing my supplies). Anyway, this is the idea:

An alien invasion has trapped civilians inside their houses. Your mission is to rescue as many of them as you can with the help of a Saab 900 Monster Truck.

No more Blender tonight

…because modeling is done. The Saab can also drive around and crush aliens, which will produce gigantic amounts of green gore. Now on to missiles to kill those nasty saucers (and a few other thousand items on the todo-list :S)

Who could have guessed that a Saab 900 Camper could be such a scary monster?

…you can walk around like a Corgi over here: http://www.habrador.com/labs/ludum-dare/LD32-corgi/

It took a little bit longer than expected (had to learn how to animate in Blender and use animations in Unity), so God knows if I will have time to finish a game. But the Corgi can walk, walk fast, turn, move backwards, wag its tail. So at least I learned something new…

Kill your thoughts is ready!

I’ve uploaded “Kill Your Thoughts!” This is the idea:

“You are participating in a competition where you are making a game in 48 hours. If you are participating in such a competition you have to be able to fight thoughts like visiting Twitter, or drink beer, and feelings like “My cat makes better games than me!” To help you fight these feelings, your brain is actually using an armored Saab on the top of your screen.”
