Hello, everybody.

That was my first attempt and, happily, i have to say i finished! The game is about a spaceship against a big and tough boss. He is the only enemy but is not easy to defeat it.

The entry page with the download is clicking here. And please, read the “Readme” file. There are the controls’ guide and more.

In battle

I hope you enjoy it.

What i got until now

Hello there!

First time posting here in Ludum Dare. I was like a tourist past year, checking and playing some games created in theĀ events. But finally i decide to take a new step and participate for the first time. I’m excited to be part of this , as well as all of you xD

What i search here are only two things: knowledge and comrades. Knowledge in development to be a better game designer (and art, programming, sound, writing and so on…). And the other one, comrades, is not like “Hey, you are good. Let’s make a game together”. No. Is to interact and make friends who love games, have the passion of make those games that we like to see a reality and to share our knowledge and doubts in game development.

So, my tools are:

  • Pencil and paper
  • Game Maker Standard
  • GIMP
  • Bfxr
  • PXtone (if i learn to make something simple xD)

And the last thing i want to say is “Let’s make games”.
