My Top 5 Ludum Dare 34 Games (+Another Shameless Plugin For My Game)

Posted by (twitter: @xanjos)
Sunday, January 3rd, 2016 6:19 pm

Hey everyone!!

So I’ve played and rated around 171 games so far for this Ludum Dare (which is a crazy amount but don’t get me started on those who’ve somehow rated around 200-400 entries) and before judging ends tomorrow, I’d like to show you (in no particular order because picking favourites is already hard :V) my top 5 entries so far (i.e. the ones you should totally give a go):

O3000

Guru

Super Lefty Garden Fighty

Soulless Capitalist Robots

Space Plant 6000

Also, since judging ends tomorrow, I’m going to shamelessly plug my local multiplayer entry Rolla Grolla Arena once more because why not (There’s 72 votes for it so far and I’m aiming to reach 100 by the end).

Seeing as it’s the last week of judging, my entry (Rolla Grolla Arena) could do with some more votes (At the moment I’ve reached just over 60 and I’m aiming to get 100 by the end of the week). You can click here to give it a try (It’s a local multiplayer game so grab a friend or two and don’t forget to leave a comment so I can play/rate your entries as well) and you can also click here to read the game’s postmortem on my blog.

As it’s the last week of judging, I still have my Google Form up so if you would like me to play/rate your entry, click here and I’ll get to it as soon as possible.

Happy Holidays!!

Monday, May 11th, 2015 8:37 am

There’s less than 11 hours until judging ends so like everyone else, I’m shamelessly plugging my entry (Beacons) for one last time (Just 5 more votes until I’ve reached the 100 mark!!)

Click the pic to play!!

Also, as always, I still have my Google Form if anyone would like me to play/rate their entries (unless I’ve already played them before). I’ll try and go through every game as quickly as possible depending on the number of outstanding responses I get.

There’s only two more days until the judging period ends and my entry (Beacons) has already gotten 79 votes so a big thank you to everyone who took the time to play and rate this. I wanna try and reach 100 votes by the end of today so if anyone fancies helping me and giving my entry a try, the link is right here. Also, if you would like me to play and rate your entry, then I’ve still got my Google Form right here (I’ll get to them ASAP but at the very least I’ll play/rate by the end of Sunday).

My Top 5 Ludum Dare 32 Games (As of 6/5/15)

Posted by (twitter: @xanjos)
Wednesday, May 6th, 2015 8:45 am

Seeing as I’ve rated over 100 games this Ludum Dare, I might as well share my personal top 5 entries in no particular order (apparently based on the ratings I’ve given so no backtracking now) because that’s what everyone is doing these days:

chromagun_thumb

Chromagun

Sun Wukong

Sun Wukong

Weapon Shortage

Drone-a-pult

Tundra

Also since there’s only five days to go until voting ends, my Google Form (if you would like me to play/rate your entry) is still up plus my own entry (Beacons) could do with some more ratings 😉

Third Time’s The Charm I Guess

Posted by (twitter: @xanjos)
Friday, April 25th, 2014 5:14 pm

Only one hour(ish) to go but here’s my obligatory declaration of participation post for what’s going to be my 3rd LD.

Going to try and submit for the compo again but this time, if I feel that my entry needs some extra polish then I’ll submit for the jam instead.

Likely Tools (sorta copied and pasted from my last post because I’m lazy):

Language: C#
Engines/Frameworks: Unity (2D Mode to be specific)
IDE: Monodevelop Visual Studio (because Monodevelop likes to break. A lot)
Art (aiming to make something that’s not simple shapes despite lack of skill in the drawing department): bvanschooten’s Random Sprite Generator, Paint.Net, maybe Inkscape
Sound and Music: bfxr, autotracker with schism tracker, otomata/circuli, audacity (for general cleanup).
Misc: Notepad+pen (for jotting down ideas as well as going through problems step by step in case things go wrong)
