imageAbout making two buttons games and force player to cooperate with himself

Ludum Dare’s theme were “Two buttons only” and “Growing”. Even if the second sounded interesting, I fell in love with the first one. Then, I took a risk : if two buttons, why not playing with two characters controlled simultaneously ?

My new developer buddy @danamongrobots​, currently working on @superradishwitch​, asked me what was the best part of polishing it up. He’s a very curious guy and seems to love analyzing design experiences. And for the first time in my long prototype experience, I can answer him “game mechanics.”

Hey guys,

I’m hosting a game jam in Kyoto, Japan. But I’m really lost about jetlag. What day and time exactly is it going to be there when LD starts (when theme is announced ?)

Save me !

Thanks :)

I had dreams about the theme

After uploading my game and finishing my cold cup of coffee, I felt on the bed and took a big nap.

My girlfriend told me that I said “I need one more monster” during my sleep. I did 5 of them already, so
is that some kind of sign ? Should I do more ?

So who’s eating who ?

I found some minor issues, but nothing too bad. I would really like to have some feedback.
(And to know if you managed to be back for dinner.)

Thanks and good luck to the Jam participant who are not done yet!

Now 1 am in Japan… everything is starting to get fuzzy. I am late on my initial plan and I am so tired that I can’t even think about priority order. As you can see on this picture, I’m starting to sleep around.


But I’m having SO MUCH FUN !!!
