Is… is this a thing?

It’s all I got. Let’s run with it.

30 minutes later: I made you a drawing.

It’s not working out.

As it looks like putting more time into development isn’t going to cause this idea to turn into anything that could be called a game, I’ve decided to stop here.

LD29 game concept

Interpreting “beneath the surface” as “secrets” and “hidden in plain sight” gave me the idea for a game about email. No, wait, bear with me. This might actually be something.

As an investigator with a shady branch that does not officially exist, you receive a hot tip from your best informant about something going down. Someone named Paul and someone named Sue are conspiring to dump their household garbage in the lake, to avoid paying for extra trash pickup! You don’t know who they are or where they work, and you don’t know when they’re going to do it, but you had better figure it out before it happens or the city will undoubtedly be sued by the local environmental protection advocacy group. This is serious business. It’s time to tap some corporate networks and intercept some email. The clock is ticking. Will you identify the conspirators and collect all the information you need in time to make your accusation stick and save the city budget?

The game will absolutely not be called “Where in the web is Carmen Sandiego?”

It seems the April LD is the web game LD for me. No base code (ignore my “I’m in”) this time, just AngularJS and wracking my brain to remember how to use it.

In for LD29

I’m definitely probably in. Maybe. ish. Yes.

Base code: https://github.com/wrongcoder/gdx-archetype/ (Maven archetype for LibGDX)

I’m in for LD 28

In contrast to my long rant about software development last time, this time I’m going to keep it short.

I’m in. Can’t wait.

Base code: My LibGDX Maven archetype.

Low Memory: concept

So at first I was all “10 seconds? What??” but then there was


Low Memory

You only have enough buffer to record 10 seconds’ worth of commands before sending them to your marooned robot. Left, right, or fire thrusters. Anticipate time passing freely in the world as you prepare your transmission.

You must decide whether to spend precious seconds picking up garbage for fuel or make a beeline for the exit.

I’m in for LD 27! and a tale about a gdx-archetype

This is an early “I’m in!” for LD 27 as well as spam. I mean, an advertisement for my base code. I mean, declaration. Yeah, that’s it. Declaration. Of base code. Right. Also, I’m in. And there’s some new base code you can check out. It’s probably terrible.
