My Progress

I only had a few hours today but I’m happy with what I’ve done. The game is called Money Tree and the aim is to grow your profits as much as you can. Starting with a “small loan” of $100,000, can you become the next Donald Trump? At the moment only the stock market is done but I hope to add other ways of making money.



I’m Done :(

I had no time this Ludum Dare so this game isn’t anything like I’d have liked it to be. It is a cookie-clicker like game which I made in under an hour.

Play it here

I’m In!

I only managed to start at 8am this morning and it’s now 3pm. About 6 hours of solid work has brought my game into a mostly done game (it’s not that complex). I call it UpgradeZero, I don’t know why, I just like the name. The art is dreadful and there is no sound but it works. Enemies spawn, sort of follow you, and now (finally the player can die! A few hours left. I think this will be my best entry yet (despite the even more severe time limits)

Third Ludum Dare in a row! I will be using Unity 4.5 (probably 2d), paint.net for the art and sfxr for sound (maybe)



First Ever Ludum Dare

This being my first ever LD AND my first ever game, I decided to make it simple. I made a very simple platformer with very basic controls.  I would really appreciate it if you took a look at it, played it and left a comment so I can improve next time.

Many Thanks



Game: LavaQuest

IS it ok if I use an opensource lib that I am coding myself (http://vogon101.github.io/VogonGame/)




Just Another I’m In! LD#29

For LD29 I will be making, not just my first Ludum Dare entry, but my first ever game. I will be using eclipse to code and the LWJGL library. I may also use other libraries such as slick. For graphics (if there are any) I will be using paint.net and there will be no sound. if anyone knows any good tutorials for LWJGL and its OpenGl  wrapper or wouldn’t mind answering some of my questions please contact me at vogonjeltz101@gmail.com.

Many Thanks and Good Luck,



EDIT: I will be using a couple of extra libraries for rendering. This may include (I’m hoping to find a better one or get slick to work) this text method found here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/60764983/code/SimpleText.java

EDIT: I will also be using an open source library that I am coding myself, found here: https://github.com/vogon101/VogonGame

Here goes

I have never entered a LD before so let’s start small. I am still at school an have lessons on Saturday. My game will probably be text based but I won’t be able to star until 1 pm on Saturday GMT.  Is that ok?

Many thanks

I will be using java
