    Hello, Ludum Dare

    This is my first Blog post on this site :)

    I’m an independent game developer from Germany. My current project is Kelgar, a first person RPG, which is currently in heavy development.

    I did not entry a Ludum Dare competition yet, but I plan on join the MiniLD #32. To practice for this, I made a few games in Flash using Stencyl.

    Last weekend I created: ‘I want to be famous’ (Iwtbf) a game based on a random theme (fame). It’s created from scratch and everything, except the samples, were created by me during the weekend. It hasn’t quite a goal and isn’t finished, but the development gave me a lot of experience.

    You can play it on my website: http://kddekadenz.jimdo.com/apps-games/iwtbf/

    I Found This Thing and It’s Really Cool So I’m Using It

    Change of plans regarding my miniLD entry.

    I recently rediscovered Love2D and have fallen in love with it again.

    I’m going to use Love2D instead of Pygame. I just… like it more. :)

    Because I can distribute a Love2D game with the Love2D binary, I’m not going to need help with packaging! :D

    I… do know that Love2D can produce an exe, but since I’m on Linux it’d produce a Linux executable. I’ll provide a package with just the Love2D package for folks who already have it and then packages with the Love2D binaries for each platform. That way everybody’s happy (hopefully!) :)

    Again, though…

    Microgames, microgames, microgames.

    Peace, love, and a simpler approach,

    – Henry

    I Need a Friend for This to Work

    Um… hey, guys.

    So… I’m using Python+Pygame for the Mini-LD, and I’m on Linux. py2exe apparently doesn’t work correctly in Wine.

    So… I’d like to ask for help from a friend who has Windows, Pygame, and py2exe. I’m only going to have one game for you to port since I’m doing a microgame compilation.

    Any help would be appreciated,

    Peace, love, and something something something,

    Ludum Dare 22 entry Four Hats now available on App Store

    We took our Ludum Dare 22 Jam entry a bit further than expected and turned it into a full game. It is now available on the App Store as a universal app: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/four-hats/id493969910?ls=1&mt=8

    You can read more about it and look at our LD post-mortem on our blog.


    Introducing Ludum Dare to my mates, and looking for people in France

    First off, if you’re in or near Montpellier or Béziers in France (Hérault department in the sunny south), or willing to haul your way over for LD #23, please contact me.

    Now that the dates for LD #23 have dropped, I’m starting the preparations for a friendly “jam” event to get people participating.

    My grandmother has a house with a large garage, a nice little garden and a barbecue, I’m hoping to be able to invite a bunch of non-LD friends from my CompSci university course and spend the weekend making some juicy games for LD. I’ve spoken about LD to these friends, but most of the time they seem to react as if it’s some kind of impossible feat, but I know for a fact that LD is not only possible, it makes other “impossible” feats feel much more within reach.

    If anybody wants to join in, I can look for accommodation options for some more people, and if there are other residents of the area willing to join in, we can possibly join our efforts and get some real action going.

    Also, I want to urge all of you to try and get at least ONE person you know to join in for Ludum Dare. Choose somebody who is always talking about some idea they have but never get round to doing it, and get them to participate, even if it means strapping them to a computer and pumping them full of caffeine intra-veinously.

    Also, if you have any ideas/suggestions/warnings on organising a DevJam at home, please drop me a comment, this is my first time organising such an event, so even if something seems obvious, it might just be something I’ll end up overlooking

    C++ and SDL? is this allowed

    Hey guys im completely new to LD, and im very interested to give it ago, but i have one simple question, can i submit games coded in C++(+)SDL? I saw the games in LD22 could be played online. but im pretty sure a exe can not be played through a website (i maybe wrong).



    A new indie game!

    So I haven’t really been active in the community after the big Ludum Dare ended because I’ve been busy deepening myself in to the world of libGDX! Me and my cousin have made a game together (: and I thought “why not share with you guys?”. Kinda.
    It’s called Monster Puzzle RPG and the battle system is sort of a mix of puzzle and adventure RPGs, kinda. In a way. Maybe.

    Download Monster Puzzle RPG on Android Market!
    Monster Puzzle RPG on ModDB!
    Read more about Monster Puzzle RPG in my game development blog

    I’m really looking forward to the 10 anniversary Ludum Dare and I hope to improve a lot for when the time comes! :)

    Mini-LD #32 – Let’s Rock!

    Posted by (twitter: @henrythescot)
    Sunday, February 5th, 2012 11:07 am

    Quantity over quality? Yow! I’m down for that!

    Here’s what that looks like for me:

    • Python and Pygame
    • Microgames
    • Sounds made by me into my microphone in Audacity and reused
    • Microgames
    • Dance music (for me, not for the game)
    • Microgames

    Look out for epic tales such as…

    • Click the red square!
    • Leave the room!
    • Solve the math!
    • Click the moving circle!
    • Jump the gap!

    These tales of bravery, courage, and heroism plus many more will be my contributions to Mini-LD #32.

    Peace, love, and a sweet hot beat,

    – Henry

    I’m looking to move into three dimensions for my next ludumdare and i was wondering  if anyone could suggest some engines/Libraries to me. I mostly code in java but have a little experience in flash.

    Thanks to whoever replies,



    After sitting dormant for a couple months, my LD21 entry gets a revisit.

    A video of the gameplay can be found here.

    This is my LD21 entry.

    I don’t have much to say about it except that I hope there are some people that want to play it!
