That’s what you get for not letting kittens into the voting, PoV!

Hey look at that sweet 4-player game! Check it out, it even has the surf ace from LD29, a snowman from LD31, and kittens from every LD theme voting (except these past 3 you terrible theme slaughterers)! HOW REFERENTIAL AND COOL! But it lacks the 3 votes it needs to reach 25! HOW HORRIFYING!



Need more votes? So do I!

Right now I have 18 votes, so I only need 7 more. If you play and rate my game with some friends and leave a comment, I’ll rate your game back in time for the end of the judging period! Play Super 2-Button Growdown by clicking here.

Growdown now available in TowerFall!

Since my LD34 game Super 2-Button Growdown took some inspiration from TowerFall, I decided to go all the way and replicate my game inside it. This custom level includes all five maps from my original game, custom tiles and music, and an optional ruleset that tries to mimic Growdown’s gameplay.

The TowerFall stage is available here, and if you haven’t played Super 2-Button Growdown yet, grab a few friends and rate the game here. Leave a comment and I’ll rate your game back!

Click here to play!

Super 2 Button Growdown is a 4-player game where each player must use two buttons to jump on the heads of their opponents to be the last one standing. However, as players lose health, they’ll also grow in size, making them able to jump higher and more easily hit opponents.

LD34 – Update 3: Characters

Posted by
Saturday, December 12th, 2015 8:19 pm

What’s a multiplayer game without lots of characters? In celebration of this being two years from my first LD, I’ve added playable characters from each of my past compo games.


Characters from CHOOSE W1SELY, Neath: Surf Ace, and Two Worlds


Characters from snowlr, Jelly Fighter, and Antimon

Got some ideas down for the theme, and threw some stuff together. Enough work for tonight, I guess. See you tomorrow!

I’m in for my 7th round of Ludum Dare! My first compo was LD28 back in 2013, and I haven’t missed a single one since. LD34 will be two years from my first Ludum Dare (and my first time ever releasing a game), so I’m going to try and fill this compo’s game with references to kittens all the other games I’ve submitted.

Previous games:

CHOOSE W1SELY – #51 Theme, #109 Overall
Neath: Surf Ace – #97 Humor, #693 Overall
Two Worlds – #223 Audio, #912 Overall
snowlr – #105 Humor, #546 Overall
Jelly Fighter – #202 Humor, #787 Overall
Antimon – #103 Audio, #151 Overall

Likely tools this time around:

Engine: Multimedia Fusion 2
Graphics: Photoshop
Sound: Bfxr
Music: Fake Music Generator for music, and MuseScore for modifying it


Meowcy For The Kittens (Wallpaper)

In honor of the third event in a row without kittens available as a theme, I’ve created yet another monument to the greatest theme ever conceived, in the form of a nifty wallpaper:

Even you can take Action against these heinous crimes by using this Undertale-inspired background; Fighting bad themes has never been so easy! Please, show your Mercy for the kittens by using this before and after the event, sharing it with your friends, and approving the theme during the next jam’s theme slaughter! …and, erm, Item. I guess.

Kittens, a joke theme normally seen in every Ludum Dare voting list, is gone for the second event in a row. Please use this wallpaper in remembrance of the only theme that ever really mattered.

Not much time left to vote! Play Jelly Fighter!
