First LD rating. Thank you so much!

I just wanted to extend a thank you to everyone for making my first rated LDjam a success.

I had created a game in a shorter amount of time do to outside work and was concerned about participating. You all offered your best constructive criticism and kind words which put to rest any concerns I had.

It really seemed to be a success for the first rating!


There was not a single moment of this LDjam that I didn’t enjoy and it was because of our amazing community.


So! What did I learn?

  • Maybe a blinking black screen is more seizure fuel than gameplay
  • Simplicity (when used correctly) can sometimes benefit more than something complex
  • When designing sprites with no border, draw them over blackĀ to make sure they pop on dark backgrounds


Thank you all for playing Freedom.

Thank you for making this special every time. See you at LDjam 38!

Another Ludum Dare done!

Whew! After having to work at my job all weekend, I managed to squuueeeezzzzeeee a game out of the few hours I had left! No way I was missing Ludum Dare 37.

I look forward to playing all of your games!

This is only my second Ludum Dare and, therefore, my first time with the rating system.

If you’d like, take a look!

Hello, all! This was my first Ludum Dare and I had an amazing weekend. I am dead tired, but it was amazing nonetheless.

I made a short, simple puzzle/adventure game for the compo calledĀ Five Ancient Keys. I’m interested to see what you guys think!
