A long time ago I used to play with spheres, and I came across http://kiwi.atmos.colostate.edu/BUGS/geodesic/text.html which is a description of how to tile a sphere 😀
I’ve blogged about building icospheres before, so I had some code to borrow to adapt to see how spheres might look for a maze or dungeon design:
If I get a chance to do LD34, I might try and make a 2D wrap-around dungeon on a sphere or something… 😉
Repost: I put screenshots of every LD33 game into a statistics program and discovered a disturbing ghostly pattern pervading the choice for themes this LD34:
This mosaic is made from the thumbnails of all LD33 games:
Happy hunting 😀
You can also use the mosaic to filter by platform, e.g. to find all the games that are ‘web’ playable
- 1493 games claimed a “web” link
- but 472 of those “web” games were actually Unity games with web player, although they didn’t mention this in their blurb; my script doesn’t categorize them as ‘web playable’
- 7 games have no thumbnail
If you like this, you might be kind and rate my game? http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=10313 Exogorth
(repost in case you missed it)
I you’re making a web game please for the love of all that is LDy be sure to put in a call to canvas.focus() or whatever in your initialization so that the space-bar doesn’t scroll the page you are embedded in!
Thank you. I’ll thank you
Here’s a mosaic of all the LD33 COMPO games:
Your game is in that mosaic, I promise! Happy hunting
You can navigate around and easily launch games straight from the mosaic.
You can also easily filter by platform, e.g. easily find web-playable games!
(I am careful to find and filter out unity games that provide web links; those aren’t web-playable for most users who are specifically searching for browser-based games)
Not showing any JAM games yet, obviously.
My own entry, Exogorth, is a JAM entry and is incomplete. I am looking forward to giving it a bit of polish and instructions tonight before the JAM deadline
Now making the camera hug the rock…
I have some scripts for making mosaics from LD entry thumbnails, and I have some scripts for scraping the LD website that I made for my LD30 “connecting worlds” entry.
It seemed natural enough to combine them So I whipped up a quick prototype this lunchtime:
So when the competition is over, I’m just one short command line away from posting an LD33 mosaic with filtering
Saw this and had to share .. be inspired to think outside the box 😀
After a slight hiccup using some LD29 thumbs in my previous LD31 mosaic, I thought it best to offer up a corrected mosaic for your viewing pleasure:
↑ your game is in this mosaic! ↑
