For my first ludum dare, I decided to try creating my first #OUYA / androide game ever. This was an interesting experience which resulted with the creation of a simple multiplayer shooter.

Despite having to work my normal day job *friday and monday* (I started saturday 9:00 and finished sunday 20:00), I managed to create a working game.
The concept was that every 10 seconds new powerups / weapons were assigned to the players, weather and environment were changing.
I did not have time to incorporate the 10 seconds theme into the gameplay. :(

8 hours setting up my programming environment.
9 hours compiling an empty window in which I was receiving controllers messages.
17 hours programming the actual game.

One thing for sure, I'll keep working on this game until it's as good as I want it to be.

I don't have an OUYA but it's a nice idea to develop a game for this platform. You are the first one in LD27 I see to do it. Good initiative !

You'd figure the OUYA is THE console for Ludumers. I don't have one however. :( Could you maybe post a youtube clip of the game so we can see what it's like?

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
