Hello everyone!

Although I started late I managed to finish the game in 20 hours straight but with some last minute game breaking bugs.

After the jam ended I worked another 10 hours and now the game can be finished and has additional controls (keyboard, gamepad or mouse).

Also there are a few new sound fx.

You can now play Personal Valley 1.1  here


Need to hurry up!

We almost had a stroke with Akis (@AOulkeroglou) when we saw that the time was over but we managed finally to submitted! Well several things miss from the game (doesn’t have an ending) and you’ll encounter a few bugs,but we did what we could. We’ll make things better on post release but now is time to sleep. It’s almost morning…

A journal

Hey everyone!

ROCKROCKET was my first game and my first Ludum Dare, and i was more than happy to get  involved with development and playing some really awesome games! Your feedback also was really great and it moved me.!


A crazy thing, one of these comments really brought me the chills, where it said: ‘Felt like a prelude to some epic, mysterious story’.

I just started a journal¬†about a project I’m making for about 14 years. Rockrocket happened to be the first piece of any media that ‘exposed’ my secret project to the world.


If you want to know more about it, you can follow this journal here:

http://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=45156.0 .

I’ll be more than happy to get any feedback!

Thanks anyway :)
