Sheep are Flammable

by someone - Competition Entry

Fly around an archipelago of floating islands barbecuing al those delicious looking sheep.

The game play is very last minute because I ran out of time. I think I was a bit over ambitious with some of the technologies in this game. It has procedurally generated islands, a blend of procedural and key framed animation on the dragon, and some rudimentary AI for the sheep.

Press any key to start the game.
Mouse Move - Turn
Left Click - Burn stuff
Space - Take flight when on the ground.
W - Walk forward / flap wings
S - Move backward (incomplete)

Note: Try diving to build up speed.

This is my first Ludum Dare entry, I kept missing them due to inconvenient timing.

First time I played I wasn't fast enough with pressing W so I fell down, and it took a while to get back up. Second round I burned 21 sheep.

It reminds me of Drakan, where you can also fly around and burn shit. :)

Great job modelling, animating and coding the game in C++. A little overambitious for 2 days like you mentioned but the base idea is great. A little more fleshing out and you really may have something here.

Doesn't work on my Windows XP x64 machine...:S

The dragon animation was excellent. The flight was pretty satisfying. Unfortunately the procedural island generation and sheep AI didn't really make themselves felt. Found out you could overtake your own breath which irritated me a little when trying to make high speed bombing runs.

Still, pretty neat. Sort of reminded me of Magic Carpet

Graphics and animation are very cool, as is to be expected from you.

There are camera issues, but that's to be expected in a 3D game like this. Controls aren't perfect either.

Concept is perfect though, there's totally a compelling dragon simulator game in here.

hmm... got the title, hit a key, stuff was getting loaded in the console window (right up to "streaming music... success"), then black screen which eventually became a grey screen and a Not Responding and a kill. Sad.

Endurion says ...

Doesn't work here. XP, SP3. Loads all the assets and then hangs.

Stoney says ...

I get the same error as Hamumu and Endurion, both on Windows 7 and Windows XP (virtual machine).

Wow pretty impressive, especially the procedural islands. Nice job. Looks really good for a 3d, 48 hour game.

It took me a few tries to get the hang of flying but it works. Impressed that you managed both a flying and a walking mode.

And the game lives up to the promise of the title. The burning sheep are hilarious. Great stuff. This is one of my favorites.

The music was a nice touch. Very complete for a weekend game.

SonnyBone says ...

Won't run on my system. Vista 64 bit. Just gives me a black screen.

Serilyn says ...

For another data point it's working just fine on my Windows 7 64 bit machine. I thought the flying mechanic was neat.

Tozy says ...

I like how he turns his neck.

Really want to play this game. It seems to load everything, but I get a black screen, no sound.
