Ludum Dare #30

I teamed'up with an old bro' and was very happy to make my first game... er, project with him, 'cause we wanted to make one from a long time. He made the (amazing!) painting and I wrote the code. The result is quite nice (I'm proud of him) but there is no gameplay at all. I was so excited by the tilesets that I turned all my code toward tiles managment, from the auto-floor-smoothing to the level editor. Watch the files under the "data" directory, there is some surprises lying in there...


Scribbling: Tom Casacoli
Messing: Pierre Vidal


We plan to add some tiles and maybe a whole new tileset. A linux port would be released at some point. Gameplay wise, maybe it would have one, one day. Stay tuned!

No rating because I'm not on Windows, but I think the "Web" link is supposed to be for a browser-playable version of the game.

pretty good visuals here! but yeah i played it and was thinking of how to finish the game and ended up knowing that there's no gameplay in your description here :))
also effort for sdl :D continue on updating this i think this would be a great game! depending on the mechanics of course.

Not much of a game, but a great start. The art on the tileset is fantastic though.

The game seem to be really incomplete but the idea and art style seems good.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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.
