You can pick things up and throw them. :p

I’m still undecided whether I want this to be used for fighting dudes (lobbing rocks is basically as ancient technology as it gets) or throwing torches around to navigate a cave.

P.S. That picture links to a video.

Progress report.

I uh, might just be making two-button infinite runner after all.


Possible toolset change.

Possibly changing coding tools to vanilla HTML5, Python, and the Bottle framework.

I haven’t decided yet, but it’s fairly likely. Been wanting to do a thing for a while, theme(s) fit it perfectly.


I’m in.

Good luck, everybody! Let’s make some awesome games. :)

  • Godot for development.
  • Krita and/or GIMP for graphics.
  • Renoise for audio + WinLAME for encoding.

No idea what libraries I’ll be using yet.

Thinking about Irrlicht + SFML’s Audio module, maybe PhysFS as well.

But we’ll see how that goes.

Graphics will definitely use open source stuff. Blender + Krita, most likely.

Music and sounds in Renoise, no VSTi.

So I got my OpenFL framework working.

But I’m going to take a stab at Godot anyway.

If you haven’t heard of it, you should check it out.¬†It’s pretty great. :)

I’m not sure if I’ll be using Godot or OpenFL. Depends on OpenFL’s stability by Friday.

If Godot
Graphics: Blender, Krita
Audio: Renoise

If OpenFL
Graphics: GIMP
Audio: Renoise

I’ve got a small framework I’ll be using for OpenFL written, but a¬†recent update broke it.

If I manage to fix it by then, I’ll post it. Otherwise vanilla Godot. Probably the beta.

Complete with music written in a true Ludum Dare style… which is to say written in just 30 minutes.

You can play the finished game here.

Done! But here’s one last gameplay GIF.

This time linking to a final game!

As an added bonus, I finally figured out how to get GIFs closer to actual speed.

Now I’m gonna go ahead and dive into some games.

Good luck everybody!

Keep up the great work!

Don’t give up! You can do it! If you need to, scale down!

Just finish!

small game > no game

Having trouble with the theme?

“Theme” is just ONE CATEGORY of several!

You can score low on ¬†“theme” but still¬†high on “fun!”

game unrelated to theme > no game

The ultimate goal is just “make a game.”

Anything in addition to that is completely optional!

one game > no game

It’s progress I guess.
