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!

“Quarter Quell” Ludum Dare Week!

Friday, May 3rd, 2013 10:13 am

I have to be honest, I mostly didn’t participate in the last LD because I wasn’t a huge fan of the theme. I know, I suck, but it’s the past now…

….. But now, to make up for my laziness, I am bringing the past back!

Starting this Friday, I’m having a Quarter Quell (#HungerGamesReference). For a week, I will make a game based on one of the 25 first topics, and it would be cool if you guys joined me in this effort! If not, it’s cool lol.

You can pick any topic (or topics) from the random list below. I went to www.random.org/sequences/ and randomly selected 10 out of the 25 numbers:

LDQQ

So the topics are:

Advancing Wall of Doom
Swarms
Build the level you play
Evolution
Preparation — Set it up, let it go
It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this!
The Tower
Infection
Growth … <– “Grow”, also this May’s optional theme for One Game A Month
Roads

I think standard LD rules should apply, minus the week to do it. I plan to do this alone, but you can be in a team if you so desire. If you want to participate, post in the comments of this post your intent to do so… and share your finish products when you’re done!

If any of you decide to participate with me, let’s see what awesomeness we can create!

First Ludum Dare!

Commies

Here’s an old one – the winning(ish?) entry from the 4th LD48. The theme was Infection, here interpreted by a cheeky wave of communism spreading through cute icon-based conversations! From the readme:

Infection (Georg Rottensteiner)

This game is a little real time strategy game. A body has been attacked by viruses. It’s on you to fight back the intruder. Only armed with an antidote you have to revert ill cells and defeat attacking viruses. Simple graphic and funny sounds helped the game to get rank 24 out of 66.

InnerBody

As a kid sometimes while driving, I’d imagine that I could shoot lasers out of the left and right sides of the car. The goal was to hit only curbs and nothing else, by turning them on and off to avoid gaps and such.

Can a child-hood fantasy be turned into a passable play mechanic? You be the judge!

InnerBody title screen

In this game you travel through the brain, stomach and anus of your loved one, who unfortunately has cancer cells spreading throughout her body. Your job is to ‘clean up’ the curb, er, cancer.

Innerbody screenshot

The fifteen levels are each randomly generated using different rules, in later levels, her coughing causes (sort of) neat graphical effects.

Infection Wars

Infectazine gas going off

splitscreen play

title screen

instructions

Infection Wars is a multiplayer game where you use an “infectatron” vehicle to bring a population of “protoplasmoid” objects over to your color. There is a (fairly dim) AI to play against, but it’s best if you’re playing splitscreen head-to-head with one or more humans. It supports up to 4 players (with multiple joysticks/gamepads, preferably, or keyboard, or mouse).

It was written using PyGame (no OpenGL), and was my first game development contest entry. For a while, I had been driving around with a license plate holder based on the game.

This came in 9th in both innovation and completeness. I’m still rather pleased at how this game turned out – it’s a pretty simple game with some easy-to-understand but unusual mechanics. A few more hours could be spent on the game to fix a few shortcomings, including the fact that sometimes the protoplasmoids get hung up on walls, and that the AI is regrettably (and nigh-unplayably) dim.

The Destruction of the Viruses

Posted by
Wednesday, November 28th, 2007 10:58 am

The Destruction of the Viruses was a fairly ambitious (but not very innovative) game written for the Infection theme. The player had to clean out the insides of a computer by killing all the viruses that resided there. The viruses could clone themselves, so it wasn’t always that easy.

It played like a top-down shooter, with FPS controls, and used OpenGL to draw a level that could be rotated around the player.

There were many good intentions, and much love for the number 5 (there being 5 levels, 5 enemy types, and 5 weapon types), yet the game failed badly. The biggest mistake was a bug which made some parts of the game framerate dependent, leaving it extremely hard if you had a low framerate (it played as intended at about 180 FPS). It’s hard to say how it would have fared without the bug, but as it were, it placed about 23th.

You can get the compo version, or its source, if you want to, but I really must urge you not to! Better to get the ‘made working dist’ released a few days after the deadline. Both of them are for Windows and OpenGL.

I have an even better version around somewhere, that I haven’t packaged and released yet. I’ll do that soon, and then I’ll include it here.

Infected game

A infected game. It didn’t get done but there is some odd graphics and strange swedish doctor sounds. Play the “game” online.

The player, shoot with a digicam on timer, yes, that is a floorball club I’m holding in my hand.

Insanity

Posted by
Monday, November 26th, 2007 11:54 am

Insanity was my entry to LD4. The topic was “infection”. My idea was somewhat far-fetched and only in the story – the home town of Ian the janitor is befallen by an infection of insanity – so he has to beat up all the scientists at his workplace to find the cause of the infection and a cure.

Insanity

Since I messed up the base engine (tried to somehow stuff the 3D into 2D), I wasn’t able to finish. There’s just one level with place holder graphics, but the level can’t be won and so the story never reaches its conclusion.

Cuzco’s Goat Bloat Game

Posted by (twitter: @philhassey)

Cuzco’s Goat Bloat Game was my first LD entry. I was pretty amazed that I was able to make a whole game in 48 hours. This game got me hooked on game compos for life :) My fiddling skills were pretty weak at the time, so I had to speed up the music in Audacity so it wouldn’t sound like a dirge. I had fun with the goat AI – it’s pretty realistic. (Goats don’t like water, they climb on rocks, and when you chase them they run everywhere!) Since it was my first compo entry, my “fun” rating was rather low – I didn’t take enough time to balance the levels. Also, the coloring of the goats makes them look like bees, oops!
