4-Color Taxi, a game I originally created for MiniLD #54 some 4 months ago has been expanded into a full premium game, supporting Android, Windows Phone, PC/Mac/Linux(Through and soon Ouya too.

The game features 3 awesome original Chiptune tracks by Joe Williamson (Creator of Sinister and Spiral Wings LD entries on here, his account: and part of the money the game makes goes directly to him!

MiniLD #56, Roundabout (Goal:Dizzy), Day1, Alpha Build 1

This is a rotating space shooter based on the MLD56 goal theme of “Make the player Dizzy”.  Challenge accepted!

After about 10 hours of coding we’ve got an alpha in place that will let us play with the central game mechanic and flesh out something interesting/fun.

This is (currently) a two button game (thrust and fire).  Gravity pulls all ships toward the vortex; the player can thrust away from it. Angular speed increases as all objects approach the center, so to gain on enemy ships you need to drop altitude.  Stars falling into the vortex provide a reference to indicate the rotational speed at different altitudes.

This current version (Alpha Build 1) has only one “level” and no difficulty progression.

We’re using the howler.js library for sound, and we’ve found that on some computer/browser combinations the engine thrust sound doesn’t loop cleanly.

Game Framework: Max Whilborg’s Asteroids vector framework
Sound Framework: Howler.js

I’ve been hanging around the IRC for about a week, and did a song or two, but I really wanna work for someone during this MiniLD and I don’t have much time. If you need music for your game, please ask! I will take almost all requests!

I can do about 1-3 songs for your game. I don’t have a real instrument available at the moment so It will all be FL Studio. The song can be a standalone tune, or a repetitive loop/song for your levels.

Bit of info about me: I’ve played Baritone (Euphonium) for about 4 years and have been an EDM producer for about 1. Although that isn’t alot of time, I have learned a lot of things, and have made things for people in the past, with happy results!

For demos, you can find my recent (and good stuff) here.

(And if you wish, you can listen to my older stuff (Most good, some tests and REAL old “meh” stuff) here.)

MiniLD: Some progress, running into issues :/

I’m working on this LD with the theme of Film Noir, and the limitation of Reduced Colour Palette. I have a nice menu screen set up, with parallax scrolling, and I’m currently working on NPCs. I don’t have a definite story at the moment, but I have a mechanic that I like. The basic idea is that you’re a cop or detective in a small section of a city, looking to dish out some justice. There are NPCs milling about on the sidewalks constantly, and any time a gun is fired, or a victim screams, all the NPCs in the area get thought bubbles above their heads, with pictograms showing the type and direction of the crime. I have the pictograms mainly working now, but I’m having issues with my coordinate system because I’m using a parallax camera.


Included are some GIFs

The Menu (GIF compression messed up the light beams)


And the Pictogram system. I will center those arrows, if it’s the last thing I do XD


We have some graphics

MiniLD : I have no idea what I’m doing

It started from an idea I got on the bus and I thought this was the best opportunity to try something unusual and that may be very bad.

Here is some kind of diagram I had to make, you can probably understand why I needed this.

Graphics will be bad, so I don’t want to show them now ^^ I went for the “4 colors” thing, just to have an excuse to make bad graphics ! I think that’s the only thing from the MiniLD post that I followed (except the “do what you want” part, obviously !)

MiniLD Progress!!!

Prior to Friday, I was all set to participate in MiniLD #56. Unfortunately, I began to come down with a nasty cold on Friday, which has barely gone away since then. If past experience is any indication, it’s better for me to take it easier & ease off of rigorous activities that I do for long periods of time. I had all of the concepts for the game planned out, so I hope to work on it later in the future, but I don’t feel up to working on it this weekend.

Good luck to everyone else that is participating.

After years of wanting to be a game developer, I’m finally living where I want to be and have the skills I need to make it happen.

This will be my first jam, which is very exciting.  Currently I’m working on a mobile game, but its time for a little break to flex the creativity skills and learn some more tricks!

I look forward to seeing all the little treasures that come from this jam.
