Candleman is my LD#27 compo entry based on the theme “10 seconds”.

After that, I published the polished version on Kongregate, and it was lucky enough to be selected by ID@Xbox program.

Now, I’m proud to announce that the re-designed Candleman has finally been released on Xbox One! I wish you can enjoy my latest and biggest Ludum Dare creation!





Buy on Xbox One

We are a small indie game studio based in Beijing, China. It’s extremely difficult for us to get attention in the global indie games market. So we would really appreciate if you could help us spread the word and make more players know this game!

LD#37 is my 16th Ludum Dare.

When I participated in LD for the first time, I was a college student trying to learn game design by myself. Now I’m running an indie game studio and has become two children’s father.

I think this is the perfect time to announce that my LD#27 compo entry Candleman is coming to Xbox One on January 2017.

So I’ve purposely slept all day to get ready for the announcement! Now I’m gonna run to the shop, get easy to cook food and energy drink!

I’m doing this by my lonesome this year, I will be working in:

  • Sublimetext
  • Javascript with the Phaser engine
  • And hopefully wrapping the thing in nw.js

I’ve yet to finish a Ludum Dare, but hopefully I’ll get something done this time!

This is my excited face

My first non-Game

Posted by
Thursday, March 31st, 2016 9:32 am

Hello all,


I am new here and I have a non-game i created this month for an Opera House in France. Yes , you’ve heard..

So I would love to get feedback from you all.


Here is the link for the game and instructions:

(it won’t read on Chrome)


Thank you all



I want to share something with you guys and get your feedback. Feel free to agree or disagree. But before I continue, I just want to say that I’ve participated in 8 Ludum Dares so far, and they’re what I look forward to, I love them. Ok, now I’ll give my little spiel.

After making your game in the 48/72 Hour Time Limit, we get to check out and Rate other people’s games. When rating somebody’s game, we are allowed to give them x out of 5 stars in 8 different Categories. These Categories include: Innovation, Fun, Theme, Graphics, Audio, Humor, Mood, and most importantly, Overall. I’m going to talk more about the Overall category in a minute. Let me just talk about something else first:

As many of you may have noticed, probably for a while now, your results don’t seem very honest. The results you get may seem surprising, this could be in a bad way, or in a good way. You’re either pretty disappointed, or you’re really happy. This is because you didn’t get a ton of votes (i.e.: ~20-70 votes, which is what a lot of people end up getting). Think about it, there were about 2,800 other games out there. Do you think that with 50 votes out of the 2,800 entries you’ll get a really honest evaluation? You shouldn’t, because unfortunately, that’s not the case.

If 5 people rate your game and they all give you a 5 on Fun, the average would be a 5/5. If 10 people rate your game and 8 of them give you a 5 on Fun, and the other 2 give you a 4, the average would be a 4.8/5. Now the game with an average of 5/5 is ranked higher than the game with an average of 4.8/5. But the game with an average of 4.8/5 should be ranked higher because it had similar scores, and more people played it. Now I’m pretty sure that in the end the game’s categories aren’t ranked based on just the amount of stars given but still, I just wanted to give you something to think about. The rankings aren’t all that honest. I noticed that many of the Top Ranked games only had about ~30-70 votes. You’ll see that the games that got the most votes weren’t up there in the Top 100. But they did, however, have more real honest evaluations, while the others with ~30-70 votes were just lucky enough to get a handful of good ratings which therefore gave them higher rankings. The Top 100 are great games, no doubt, but are they the best out of the 2,800? We don’t really know for sure.

Ok, now I’m going to talk about this Overall category. The site says that your game is ranked overall based on your Overall category ratings. Do you think that we should be allowed to rate the Overall category? The Overall category should be based on the other categories rounded up. The site should give us the Overall Rating, not us. Here’s just one reason why: I’ve seen many people give a game great ratings, like 4-5 stars on every category, and then they would give the Overall category a 3. Umm… What? Shouldn’t you base the Overall category on the other categories? If you gave all the other categories 5 stars, then why would you give the Overall category 4 stars? The Average Overall Rating would be a 5, so give it a 5. But since people don’t always do that, let the Robots do the math and give us the Overall Rating, not the Humans.

I’m not entirely sure how Mike (Founder of Ludum Dare; Support him on Patreon!) can make the evaluations more honest because you can’t just have 2,800 people play all 2,800 games, that’s just ridiculous. But it’s just something to think about.

Give me your thoughts in the comments please.

Thanks for listening!

I’m in… for the 8th time.

So yeah I’m in, for my 8th Ludum Dare I’ve attempted.

Over the past few LD’s I’ve really not been up to standard due to formulating ideas that are just really large. So this time I’m going for the small (like really small) games that actually stick to the theme. All whilst trying something new.

Weapons of Choice:

Engine: Unity3D.

Graphics: Affinity Designer.

Audio: Bsfxr.

Language: C#

Also LD related, I was going back through my old LD projects and decided to do a rework of my LD #27 entry called GravNav you can have a look at the announcement for the new version here and have a look though the screenshots for the old version here (Sadly none of the links work for playing or looking at the source as they direct to me old website.).

Anyway good luck everyone, hopefully this time around I’ll do better :D.

Blupp the Gruesome is real

10Up: Blupp the Gruesome is our newers addition to the astonishing game jam series 10Up. Some people worked hard day and night, they still found time to sleep somehow, to present you:

10Up: Blupp the Gruesome – A turn-based realtime detective thriller for two players in hotseat mode, powerd by Kha!

One player is Blupp the Gruesome, the tragic victim of experiments. At night he is searching for a way home to his water world (see 10Up: Interdimensional Liquids). To achive this goal he must find all parts of the dimension-portal-cannon.

The other player is Mr. S. In his youth he was victim of experiments himself (see 10Up: Mountain Brew). But he still became a valuable part of the 10Up special forces (see 10Up).
After he became aware of the newest experiments of the professor (see 10Up: Unity), he is focused on freeing the others from their fate.


NOTE: It’s important, that the Player of Mr. S does not look at the screen while Blupp the Grousome is playing.

Roboticon: An Evolution

For LD27, I created a robotic face-matching game, and I have since rebuilt that prototype into a new game with more modes, more polish, and more fun called Roboticon.


It is free for iOS and Android. It gets really fun to play with friends when you get to the upper levels. Oh, and I also added cats (an optional IAP)! Please check it out.

Jackton Factory: The Movie

Posted by (twitter: @Pitzik4)
Thursday, July 31st, 2014 1:46 am

Here’s a poster I made for a movie adaptation of my Ludum Dare 27 game, Jackton Factory. Of course, I have no plans to actually make this movie, but making the poster was pretty fun. I plan to include it in Spanner in the Works.

Jackton Factory: The Movie

How did they stretch 10 seconds into a feature-length film? Were there 700 characters?

On the subject of SitW, development is going pretty well. I ran into coder’s block for a couple of weeks, but I am very much back in action now. I’m currently working on making a level editor, which will be useful for me (Tiled is definitely not ideal for this game’s purposes!) and allow me to add Steam Workshop support. Eventually. Only time will tell if I’ll continue to run into inspiration problems for such long periods of time throughout the development process – I sure hope not.

New Group Blog, Post Mortem Video and more?!

Posted by (twitter: @literalgames)

Last summer, we entered our first Ludum Dare as a group. It was so much fun, we’re already getting hyped up about doing it again – so over the next month and a half, we’re going to be doing a whole load of preparation and somehow putting it out there for you all to see.

Our stream last time didn’t get above 15 viewers, and this time we’d love for that to be more, so we’ve decided to start drumming up interest now. We’ve started up a blog where you can follow our endeavours (although we’ll be cross posting most of the stuff we do here).  We’ll be posting, practising streaming, reviewing previous LD48 games and maybe even doing a mock 24 hour run, so stay tuned if you’re as excited as we are!

Links to: BlogStream, and our latest LD entry (LD27)

For our first update, we’re going to be doing a super in-depth video post mortem with the newest member of our group, which should be up sometime in the coming week!
