April 20th-23rd 2012 :: 10 Year Anniversary! :: Theme: Tiny World
Teeming - DaveDobson - 48 Hour Compo Entry
After hearing about the "Tiny World" theme, I decided to go with a game in a petri dish. You control a microorganism, and you can swim around the dish eating bacteria, gathering symbiotes, battling your competitor microbes, and dividing yourself to produce more of your species.
There are ten levels. Your goal is to reach the target population level of cells. You may also be required to eliminate your competitors in later levels. If you take too long, your petri dish will dry out, and you'll have to try the level again.
This was my first entry for Ludum Dare - just heard about it earlier this year. A lot of fun. Many thanks to my mom for putting up with my programming.
I used the excellent CraftyJS library as a basis, BFXR and GoldWave for sound, Gimp and Irfanview for art, PowerPoint for some other art, and NotePad++ for coding.
