[MiniLD #48] The End.

And so, it ended…

I couldn’t complete the game in time, and I lost motivation due to not really knowing what theme I was following anymore. It’s a darn sham too since I was enjoying the challenge so far…

Ah well, until the next!

[MiniLD-48] Game: Five — Progress, at last!

Darn midi music keyboard was messing up, so it’s taken me a good while to finally get everything started…

Here’s what I have so far, the lighting took the longest I’d say, but in my opinion it looks pleasing.


And here’s some music I did in about 15 minutes!

[MiniLD #48] I’m in.

I had a great time with LD #28, although I made a few amateur mistakes since it was my first ludum dare and in fact, my first ever public released game. so I’m gonna chill and do LD48. :3

I’m going to be using:

– Game Maker 8.0
– Audacity
– Fruityloops 10
– Photoshop

I’m not sure on the theme yet, but it might be 3D.

Finally Finished…

Well, this has been great, and I’m finally done!

I’d be lying if I said this hadden’t been a lot of fun, but I think I could of done much, much better — I just got a late start.

My final verdict of my own product is as so: It could of been MUCH, MUCH more…
Music: Average
Graphics: Horrible
Plot: Reasonable
Game-play: Crappy

You can take a look for yourselves, here:


And you can listen to the music here, if you’re interested in that:


End of the day, for me…

Seven hours work… This has taken way too long, but at least I’ve finished the main idea. now all that’s left is polishing, and fixing my darn grammar… I think I’ll probably join in on these in future, as it has been fun.

Here’s a video to the project so far, there’s not much, but there’s another 5 choices after that first one I show (Not showing all because Spoilers. :3 ):


Honestly, I’m happy with it — But I made it, so of course I’d be happy with it.

My flaws in game making are obvious, I’m horrible at making graphics. They only took me 34 minutes.

Here’s a time schedule so far:

Graphics: 34 minutes
Sound: 20 minutes
Writing: 50 minutes
Scripting: 4 hours
Tea breaks: 1 hour

First Ludum Dare, and a very late time start!

Heh, I didn’t think I’d actually be attempting this, since it’s nearly 00:00 where I’m at, and there’s only a day and 3 hours to go!

I’m not really sure what to put in these, but I figured I’d post it as marker of when I started, since I can’t stream or anything due to bad internet…
I also possibly have the most cramped work space ever!

Hopefully I can think of something original and compelling!

Screenshot of work space: (I need more monitors) – 23:58
LD28 - Cramped Workspace

UPDATE: (one hour later, I didn’t have much wrote for a post last time…)
Unfortunately I haven’t managed to get much done, a little music which you can hear at: -MEDIAFIRE LISTEN LINK-

Screenshot of progress: (I need to be faster!..) – 01:24
