Quick post to make my profile less buggy

Before this post, link http://ludumdare.com/compo/author/japtar/ is not working, but apparently posting on this account once should fix it.

Edit: in reality, though, I’m using the Omiya Games account, and occasionally use this one as backup if I have more than one game to submit.

I’m in!

14 weeks, 1 day until Ludum Dare 35. Ok. No need to panic yet.

A bit about myself – Henrik “Tivec” Bergvin is my name, currently living in Norway where I work with security in an airport administration. I’m of the ’82 vintage, living with my girlfriend and 3 dogs. I love programming and gaming, so Ludum Dare should be right up my alley. I haven’t participated before, so this is my first competition – thus why I start out early. The goal is to spend as much time as possible working on refining my skills so that I am ready for the weekend.

I’ll try to post about my progress every so often – once per week is the goal. Stay tuned for more!

My Best (Magical) Friend works-in-progress

Friday, December 18th, 2015 10:42 pm

If you haven’t already played it, try our LD34 entry “My Best (Magical) Friend”, a very japanese visual novel about friendship and cool magic powers.
http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-34/?action=preview&uid=35477

And since this is always fun, here’s some work-in-progress shots.

HOW TO MAKE A VISUAL NOVEL:

1

STEP 1: Write a bunch of stuff on pieces of paper.

 

2

STEP 2: Google docs because nobody else can read handwriting.

 

3

STEP 3: Plan out the whole story in MSPaint.

 

4

STEP 4: Write a little code.

 

5

STEP 5: Write some scripts. A lot of scripts. (This part took the longest!)

 

And voila, that’s how a visual novel was made!
Some screenshots of the final game:

final_1final_2

Give it a shot, and hope you like it! Was very interesting to do something story-based (since I usually do action).

We chose the theme “Growing”

We thought it would be a good idea creatively to not combine the themes, but just pick one. So here it is, our main character, Jasmine!

Profile Issues and Game Links

Hi all.  I appear to be having issues with my profile.  When people attempt to click on it, it says I’m “Not Found” as a user.  I’m hoping that adding this post will prompt some kind of “refresh” procedure and fix it but I don’t know, it’s just a guess.  If it doesn’t, see below for links to the games I’ve submitted so far.  At the very least, it should make it easier for people to see my submitted games.
[Edit]It appears to have worked! My profile page has come back![/Edit]

Ludum Dare 26
I entered this back in 2013 with PaperFlick – a ball of paper flicking game done as a text adventure, based loosely on those Paper Toss games for mobile.  LD26

Mini Ludum Dare 63
I entered this about a week ago with a text adventure version of Snake.  I’m not actually intending for all my games to be text adventure versions of mobile games, that’s just how it’s turned out so far.  MiniLD63

Hi everyone,

while we’ve all been looking forward to the next game jam over here, me and 2 other students have been making a little game for a course at our local college (KULeuven) and we finally have a public version so we would like to show it off to you guys and get some feedback.

The game is currently only on android and available in the play store, obviously for free: Play Store link

It is a dexterity game, a tough-as-nails 2D infinite runner and we made it using Unity. (more…)

Emotionshop Promotion

Monday, October 19th, 2015 2:34 pm

I started this project in my academic program because of the inspiration of LudumDare. Now I am so proud that the project going well and we will keep working on it. We want to hear feedback from LudumDarers! Thank you everyone.

Emotionshop_poster

Emotionshop – a team with an ambition. Every week, we choose an emotion to design games around. Each of us will make one game. Our goal? To explore the role of game mechanics in evoking emotion. This means no story, minimal sound, and art based on abstract shapes.

Challenge: Guess the emotion of the week. We won’t tell you what it is, you just have to play our games. Are you up for the challenge?

I am a hypocrite

Posted by (twitter: @YarharALC)

I am a huge anti-preorder advocate. You can preorder the sequel to my LD32 game RIGHT NOW. (shameless whoring)

I hate the preorder rewards system. The game is 50 percent cheaper now than it will be from April onward.

I don’t like interactive text. My first two games I’ll publish will have fit that description.


 

Why the change in heart? I don’t know. You see, making Spudcannon was a last-ditch effort to make the LD32 game that I had promised myself I would make. I haven’t touched it since. I’ve been searching for a purpose lately and after playing The Beginner’s Guide, a game that shows the dark side of game development, I want to get back into game development. I’m not very sane.

 

Next! Okay, what are you going to make, Yarhar? 

Let’s make poetic emo bullshit! What kind of poetic emo bullshit?

Erm… a 2D sidescroller? Sure. That hasn’t been done.

Okay, then. Let’s just make the Spudcannon sequel. Easier than poetic emo bullshit.

 

So now, after soul-searching, I’m making the sequel to Spudcannon. It will be $1.50, giving me a reason to finish. It will be available for preorder, forcing me to finish. Among other game developers, I want to be honest about that last bit. Don’t preorder unless you are okay with your two quarters possibly ending up in my wallet forever. Every 75 cents I get, however, will encourage me to keep working on the game. The preorder isn’t there for money, it’s there to guilt-trip myself into finishing a project. Creating this game’s page has possibly permanently changed the way I view indie preorders and early access indie titles.

Made a game for Duplicade!

What is DUPLICADE?

We want you to make one (or more) short, player vs. player games, 30 seconds, win or lose, just like last year’s BARFCADE, but this year, we want you to populate the outlaw flea markets of our minds with knockoffs and bootlegs of other games that are just weird enough to not get you sued.

Quote from the jam site on itch.io.

This jam was for local 2-player-one-keyboard versus games only, with pre-specified controls!

You can probably guess which game I picked!

Try and rate my game here, if you have a buddy around:

http://itch.io/jam/duplicade/rate/37283

 

It’s also available on Gamejolt if that’s more your thing, here:

http://gamejolt.com/games/tnt/93284

 

And now I think I’ll whip something together for MiniLD #62 while I still have the time! 😀

Stats for Entries

So I found this awesome tool here: http://ldstats.info/francoisvn

It shows useful stats on your Ludum Dare entries and trends. Unfortunately you need to have an author page to get a list of your games and compile those stats, so this is my simple attempt to create such a page :)

Looking forward to Ludum Dare 34!

EDIT: Yay, it works! Updated the link :)

Just for curiosity, why I can’t see the user page, with previous entries of some people?
