More like an engine than a game…

Posted by
Sunday, August 28th, 2016 12:59 pm

I thought of making a DOS text adventure, with the following goals:

  • completely from scratch
  • no ‘story-telling’ engine
  • fighting & items
  • dynamic map

Screenshot from 2016-08-28 19-27-38

I achieved that, but 80% through I still didn’t have any gameplay other than go NORTH and co.. But the back end was ready for fights, items, magic and more.
Most of the game was made in the last two hours I had time to work on it.

The story line is literally:

You have heard of a danger in the east. Go kill it!

Still…

I hope you enjoy it and good luck on finishing your game!

Team Judging for LD34

Are you judging games as a Team? (v2)

Then THIS is for you! I made a Website for my team to make rating your games easier.
This was making it so easy for us on LD33 that I decided to work on it a bit more and make it public for this LudumDare.

ld_select

How to use the page:

If you go to rateld.de you see a room selection panel.
To use the page you have to come up with a room label with your team.
You just enter that room label into the form and you can start rating games by clicking “Rate Game”. Remember: Ratings go from 1=worst to 5=best. Also all the ratings from a room will be graphed. (to make it easier to see if you get tired and give worse results.)

ld_rate
If you are the owner of the account that submitted your game you can click on the “List Ratings” button.

ld_list2

If you click on “RATE NOW” you will be taken to the Entry Page on LudumDare.com in a new tab. Also the game will be marked as rated and will be highlighted to make copying the values easier.

What is the UID?

Games can have the same name. On the “List Ratings” page I want to link you to the game. To do that I need to use an unique identifier that LudumDare.com gives every game.

Where do you find the UID?

If you are visiting the entry page of a game/ rating page. The very last number in the URL is the Unique ID. All you need to do is copy that (usually 3-5 digit number) and paste it into the UID input form.

If you find any problems contact me at info@tibyte.net

Greetings!

 

PS: We also made a game, ld34.rateld.de rate it here Shipload

We are in!

This is my fourth Ludum Dare,
but it is the first one I will truly work with a team.

This time a couple of friends join me coding, making art and composing music.
It’s going to be fun!

 

We’ll make a web game (HTML, JS, CSS and so on) using Pixi.js
depending on the theme with a more intelligent server running flask.

Our progress will be kept on https://github.com/tibyte/ludum34 (with more information)
and the working version will be post to http://ld34.rateld.de/ along with the documentation and timelapses!

 

We wish everyone a good Ludum Dare 34!

This page is in beta, if you want to call it that, and I know this is a little bit late for this LD, but I’ll be working on it in preparation of the next Ludum Dare.

Team [JAM] Rating got out of Hand!

Posted by
Monday, August 24th, 2015 7:56 am

So we worked in a Team and want to rate your entries. I have submitted the game, and now it’s my duty to rate them…
We wanted to automate the process as much as possible, within the LD Rules of course.
I’ve made an interface and I am thinking about making this it’s own website (with profiles) for JAMers to use.

ldteamrater2
Functions
:

  • Adding new Ratings
  • Graphing Ratings over Time
  • Spider Graph per Game
  • Linear Regression -> Changing sharpness of Rating?
  • Rating Button

Background:

  • This Web Service is running on a Raspberry Pi with Raspbian
  • Written PHP and JavaScript
  • Database: MySQL

What’s next?
To make this public I need to check the security of everything. And basically the only other thing to make this usable for multiple teams is either adding a profile system or a “room” selector.

Tell me what you think of it ­čśÇ
Good luck to everybody who’s still coding/debugging/fixing/polishing.
Greetings from Germany

This looks like a working version.

The only major thing missing is the Story “Mode”.
We have to start recording for that soon, but this was the fastest LudumDare, I’ve ever worked on. (out of three)

If you want to have a look at the current version or want to have the source code feel free to visit: Game (TiByte.net)
 More information at: Info (TiByte.net)

We ended up using: Pixel.JS, Howler.JS, and a lot of JavaScript.
The “obligatory” tools used were: Audacity, GIMP, Sublime Text3 (with a lot of Plugins).
Sadly we couldn’t keep the livestream running, because of audio problems with the keyboard.
(OS: Ubuntu | Had Chronolapse running all day… looking forward to the video)

Good Luck to everyone!
Greetings from Germany

I’m in using:

  • Javascript (HTML5)
  • Pixi.js & Howler.js
  • Piskel, Audacity and SFXR

I will be working with a friend who will help me with the idea and the music.
We are not using any pre-LD assets.

Our developement will be livestreamed at Twitch.TV on the TiByte channel.

Good LD-Luck to everyone involved!
Greetings from Germany.

Ever wondered what it would be like to fight slightly zombified girls in an apocalyptic world with weapons straight from the gift shop?

No, me neither

Story Text...

Story Text…

What the game has:

  • 3(+) weapons
  • a big (soon to be finished) map
  • a GUI
  • an one paragraph story
  • a timelapse┬áof the first 10 hours

What i will add in the next 24h:

  • Actually working “ai”
  • more weapons
  • better sounds
  • “shaders” or at least prettier graphics
  • gamepad controls

Tools (all free/personal/trial versions):

  • Unity 5 (C#), GIMP, sfxr
  • Chronolapse, Open Broadcaster Software
  • Windows 8.1 64bit

Playable version will be uploaded to rasp.tibyte.net/games/bd together with source code
Warning: Found some weird bugs in the web-version, that aren’t present in the actual desktop standalone.
