Thanks 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!

Whos wanting some LD #31!

I cant wairt til LD #31! With little over a day left till LD i am sooo excited! But sadly i will be entering the Jam instead of the LD as we are going to do the very first Brick Built Ludum Dare Team! Also comment if you are also excited! =D

Re-LudumDare #2 – Reign of the Mad Chief – Finished!

So I have been doing my second Re-LD (doing old LD themes in LD-comp time), and I finished #2!
(this post will be a bit of a repeat from my last, but arrr I’m tired…)

Theme:
Construction / Destruction

Concept:
You are a starting barbarian ruler, and you plan to build a grand castle!
Who has to pay for the expenses? Well, time to squeeze the peasants & raid the neighbors!
But at the end of the year they will come for revenge. But your castle should withstand that, no?

Mechanics:
2D Terraria-block craftyish, placing structures over blocks (throne rooms, doors), or outdoors (soldier tents).
Mobs/soldiers move in clumps and fight whatever they bump into (opponents, doors, etc) – if they get to the throne room / command tent you are dead!

Progress:
I got music & sounds & archers in this last day, and plenty of balancing, so I am pretty happy. Did this one in Jam time again (3 days instead of 2), that seems to be more my pace. Tomorrow, Jod and I will be doing the Mini-LD together. Arr so much LDing!

>Play it!<

(linux built also on page)

So I have been doing my second Re-LD (doing old LD themes in LD-comp time), an this is my progress on #2!

Theme:

Mobs/soldiers move in clumps and fight whatever they bump into (opponents, doors, etc) – if they get to the throne room / command tent you are dead!

Progress:
Started yesterday afternoon (CET, about 24 hours ago). Doing well, a bit short on time (I have got about 3-4 hours to go, maybe 8 if I shuffle some).
Engine: Unity3D, primarily in 2d mode. Most art is mine, only the wood/stone textures are free stuff, and NGUI for UI.

Todo:
Finish basic fight mechanics, balance them a bit. Then hopefully add some archers / more complex opponent units.

Chain Reaction Explosions

It’s not working perfectly for now, but that’s the idea, You only get One Shot ! and you have to use it to trigger chain reactions and destroy all the ennemis in one shot ! But right now I think the explosions are growing more and more in chain, maybe too much !

test

You can use one of the three ammo, choose the one that fits the best the situation and aim well !

Good luck to everyone !

Bathroom Teacher

Bathroom Teacher Title Screen

For Bathroom Teacher, I took some pics of the bathroom in the park near my house and then figured out a theme to wrap around them.

You ‘construct’ mudballs to throw at sheep when you notice they are coming out of the wrong bathroom. It’s for their own good!

It starts off a bit slow but very soon you’ll see the point of the game is to wrack up massive points with combos.

This was my second entry, and the first time that I got something playable. This is still one of my favorite games from LD, even though the graphics are a little simple.

TIE is a puzzle/platformer, where must build a roadway across a series of ice floes, while avoiding the exploding sheep.

The Destruction of the Sheep

Posted by
Tuesday, November 27th, 2007 11:30 am

Having learnt some great lessons from my previous LD48 entry, Save The Hut, I decided to not include as much boringness, confusion and frustration in my next game. Together with the theme Construction/Destruction, and a cosmetic theme of Sheep, it all became so obvious: I was to make a game where you construct traps to destruct sheep. And lo and behold! there was The Destruction of the Sheep.

tdotsshot.gif

I decided to use pretty much the same tech as for Save The Hut, but used it better to get some fancier stuff, like sub tile precision movements, rotated sprites, pseudo 3D particle gibs, and paintable background.

The game was supposed to be a puzzle game, but in the end only a few levels were puzzly, the rest was just mindless, but entertaining, sheep destruction with lots of gore. All in all, it worked out very well, making me a winner in ‘fun’ and ‘complete’ categories, and third in ‘gameplay (innovation?)’ and ‘overall’.

There’s an improved version available, adding some fixes, and a 2x time speed-up button (but there remains at least two bugs and a lot of spelling errors). You can get this version of The Destruction of the Sheep as a .zip archive or as an installer. They’re for Windows.

The original compo version is also available, both for DOS and for Windows (the Windows .exe was kindly provided by Hamumu during the compo). There’s also the source.

Sheep Strike

Ludum Dare #2, theme Construction/Destruction and Sheep. My game, Sheep Strike. Sheep Strike is a 2 phase game. In the first phase, you construct using Tetris blocks, a defensive barrier to protect the baby wolves. Occasionally getting guns as well. In the 2nd phase, using your guns, you’d defend the base from a bombardment of sheep coming from the sky.

The game scored a Silver in the Theme category.
