TL;DR; game jam/indie dev open mic night I play the games and give feedback everyone hangs out in chat.

Hey everyone! TigerJ here after not participating in any LDs since LD27 I was recently called out by a buddy of mine who talked me into Movie Game Jam over on itch. Since then I have started a twitch channel, and I am hosting a show where game devs and game jam participants can hang out together while I play their games (finished or not) and give feedback.

If you have a game you would like played or want just to hang out feel free to come by this evening (5 pm eastern time – 2 am) I will be streaming for a large window to accommodate many international devs.

Thanks so much! Keep making games! (I will be in the next LD with an entry)

With two months having passed since the last LD, some of you might miss jamming already… Well good news, the 2nd edition of the Alakajam! event starts soon!

If you’re free on February 23-25th, you might be interested in joining our young community for a week-end of jamming:

  • The two weeks prior to the jam are dedicated to an original 2-step voting system (Week 1 = submission/voting, Week 2 = shortlist ranking
  • The jam itself lasts 48 hours, both for solo & team entrants, with start/end times suited to Europeans (7pm GMT)
  • Two weeks of community voting then take place until the winners are announced!

Our first jam back in September was great fun, ending with 50 games and some really awesome entries! We hope to see you there :)

What i do wrong?

Hi! Recently i made my second game for Android and publish it in Google Play. Sometime later i saw that it also doesn’t popular as my first game. Why? What i do wrong?

Preface about my last 2 years of development
In winter holydays in 2016 year i learned next books:
Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship – Robert Martin;
Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software – GOF;
Learning LibGDX Game Development – Suryakumar Balakrishnan Nair, Andreas Oehlke.

First step
After it I were start to develop my first real game (not prototype, full with main menu screen, pause and also leaderboard) one and half year ago. I published it in Google Play at 3 march 2017. Game like Pac Man about dormitory life. You need to run away from three girls, eat fruits and other dishes and collect coins.

About development
I were start from class diagram and go towards code over about one month. A lot of time took design. Top-view peoples is were 3d-models. Yes, it took many many time to learn 3D Max, Maya and put it to trash. In the end i chose Poser with standart Assets. After it i were need to animate characters that took also not less time. I animated characters in the same Poser. Next was other parts of design. It was beauty and simple. Sounds was getted from free sounds web resources.

Result
This game has 179 installs after publish, for more half year. Yes, it’s fiasco.
Link in Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ru.pascalman.dormitoryman

Second step
After my first big game i were join to Ludum Dare #38 with game ‘The Whole truth about Nature selection’. May be you saw it. And it was cool. I received comments and likes. It wasn’t popular, but it in any case was very cool expierence. I joined the Jam, although i wanted to join the Compo.

About development
I used my paper notepad for prototyping, Photoshop for fast design and Processing JS for code. Sounds was record in my kitchen on my Macbook.

Result
2 like on Openprocessing.org, about 700+/2500 place on ldjam.com in total rating.
Link in Openprocessing.org: https://www.openprocessing.org/sketch/422870

Third step
My last game was Simple and Classic Match 3 game. Game about Russian cities sights.

About development
I used Illustrator for design, LibGDX and Java for code, sounds from free sounds web recources.

Result
And after publish, 20 October 2017 it has 3 installs.
Link in Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ru.pascalman.traveljewel

Is there any advises?
I published news on my social media pages and it not working. I used best-practice for Google Play description decoration, made promo video and took good screenshots. It was my big mistake to make not candy Match 3? It’s normal? Maybe my games really not good? What do you think about it?
I will thank you for your any comments and advises.

shofos

This is my first proper game which is not a beta or liced with bugs so I’m hoping you’ll check it out and give some feedback to me.

It is a simple adventure/puzzle game, where you play a cyborg trapped in a bunker, it features shooting and blades.

Can you navigate the maze using your limited sensors to get the 3 parts necesarry to upgrade your shielding and get out.

I used the Blender Game Engine to make it, it is  currently available for windows and linux. I’m hoping to localize it to mac some time aswell.

Hi there,
Here’s another one for my Neil Creates series where I recreate the dice mechanics of Dice Hunter. It’s a great game!
This is a series where I try to recreate some assets, art style, gameplay mechanics, and other components and/or elements that make up other games. I also share some techniques and best practices that I learned so far while recreating previous works of art. Enjoy!
Play. Learn. Create.

Thanks for another great Ludum Dare!  Here is the results of my game, Bat Cave.  I previously posted a Post Mortem of the game, and when I get some time I may post a comparison of my 3 LD scores, but these results are a great improvement from my last LD.

schizoid2k - LD37 Score

Also, if your erection problems are only occasional, and don’t happen at least half the time you have sex, then Vardenafil treatment might not be right for you either. Please understand that Sildenafil is not an maglia4outlets.com aphrodisiac and does not cause sexual excitement.
