I’m in: BOOBS Save the Day!

I’m in with an idea that developed over the week. Yes I know there’s a theme, never cared much about that but I’ll fit it in, no worries.

The game will be a twine game, after 20 something lousy games with not enough story and text, this one will be text everywhere! And it will also be a game for the boob jam. Yup, it’s a text game created in twine or something like that.

BOOBS save the Day is a smash-hit to be, a mash-up of recent news and already been compared to Sucker Punch. With a teleporter that needs 10 seconds to recharge three radical superheroines save the . Staring the secret feminist organization BOOBS with their lunar operation base. Featuring Ben Affleck as Batman. Staring “A long night in Gatwick” star David Miranda. Directed by renown artist Ai Weiwei. Featuring a performance by Pussy Riot. Introducing Chelsea E. Bradley. With cameos by Barak “Peace Nobel Price” LOLBama and Julian Assange in a breath-taking chase through Stockholm. An Ananasblau Games production soon in your browser.

Just two levels and I couldn’t be bothered to upload windows and mac binaries. So if you happen to have love2d installed, this is for you.


Where is Pixel – Excellent progress on the first half day

With my good foundation of previous games in love2d (all of them on github for you night-time reading) I managed to get a great start. Some brain went into abstractions so that the level files. Now they are filled with anonymous classes and methods and do everything from generating a random background to entities to the moving character called Pixel. I’ll have a Doctor Who break now before writing the code for end-of-level and some other game elements like a timer and a score counter. Tomorrow will be all about new levels and putting living things into them.

I had this idea of Where is Pixel? a few week ago and it fits the minimals them perfectly. It’s a search game and you have to find Pixel who a 3×1 figure on a terribly big screen.

I’ve done a 10 minutes draft of four levels but that’s not all as the levels will get some animation like nebulousflynn has done with a map.

let’s share our code (on github)

I did the same for onegameamonth in January, it is a bit dead by now. ld48 is a lot more focused and this time I’ll simply go around and fork any repo that’s marked with ld26 into this ludum dare github organisation. Yay, we gonna create the most massive collection of game source code 😀

Bitbucket users will sure find something similar, or push to both services because that would make your code even more safe!

You can count on me, Team Potato

I’m in with all the might of my github treasure chest https://github.com/tomK32?tab=repositories

As i’m doing 1GAM I already have a few games this year to show off and the android users among you surely want to try my last puzzle game.

What a weekend. This is surely the best jam game I ever created. Srsly.

It’s a simple rogue-like, you must stop the adventurer from collecting all the treasures and exploring your lair.

Downloads for Mac, Windows and löve2d.

Progress is great, missing parts are: some pathfinding for the invading Hero, some stats on him, a win/loose condition, sounds and if I got time for it: A proper intro scene.

Here’s the annotated screenshot and I got a first build for ya to download: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/jnmvjpqtu6m01eu/SasCaG41gA?m (windows, mac, and löve2d)

I’m getting there, fast. Next up is wiring up the controls and some AI for the so called Hero that you have to fight.

Very first step, picked up some older code of mine, threw proper perlin noise and two filters (bloom + noise). Game will be with a sort of fog of war with the idiot adventure leaving tracks and occasionally making a sound, visually highlighted for those without a 5.1 sound setup. Kollum: The Pressure Valve - 0.0.1

you are Kollum, anancient Villain living in a dormant underground city. You destroyed it back in the olden days by removing a pressure valve (ur precious), killing everyone. But since you lost it and some dwarfish explorer has found it you are in a panic to get your pressure valve back.

A rogue-like where you lure in dark corners, ready to attack that blobbin’ adventurer.

Actually not just me but a couple more fellas meeting at a small place in Linz, Austria. Chances are small anyone will, but visit us :) We’ll start early on Friday with our own little theme voting and pre-compo-gamedev/party because that’s the proper thing to do.

My toolkit contains LÖVE2d, lots of exp, and my new 16:9 monitor that I’ll rotate to make a 9:16 game, and it sure won’t be Tetris. I don’t know yet, but might re-use code from my last LÖVE2d project: http://github.com/tomk32/servantsofblood

Warmup weekend in a hackerspace: 8 games :D

Posted by (twitter: @ananasblau)

We had our own little game jam planned for weeks and what a nice coincidence that the warmup weekend happend. About 15 people turned up at metalab our hackerspace in Vienna and we created 8 games, most solo but also teams of three. We chose our common theme on Friday evening, occupy was the lucky winner and the contestants got busy right away. The outcome couldn’t be more colourful in gameplay, controls and programming languages used. As we keep the presentation local we barely upload games to the webs but even better, we upload the source so check that out too. https://metalab.at/wiki/Super_Gamedev_Weekend

I gonna make it outta here alive!

Awesome afternoon, awesome progress. I’m just starting to write the game loop but the game is online at Trollbridge-Armours.ananasblau.com and you can take a snoop around the shop. My test suite sums up to 68 specs by now. Not that anyone cares…

it’s a shop
