Ancient Storm: Legends of the League of Defence Heroes 2

by 3CGames - Compo Entry

Play the latest MOBA all the kids are talking about!

Simple little game. I'm glad I finished something though.

This game might not make much sense to you if you haven't played a moba before.
Contains some strong language.

The chat text was very accurate.

This game was quite interesting. The graphics had that coder graphics charm. The audio was simple but maybe a bit too much. The music could have benefitted from being a little longer and more SFXs would have helped. The chat was quite amusing and the mood you set was cool. However, I did not see the theme shine through besides the fact you're controlling a monster. Overall, a cool little game that just lacks some polish.

It took me some time to figure out who I was controlling... little dudes vs. Monster, but it was fun once I got it.

The chat simulation was one of the best features I ever saw in a Ludum Dare game. 5/5, would blame my team again.

The chat text was awesome haha. Unfortunately, I felt like I had very little control over the outcome of the battle, but maybe that's the feel you were going for (being a measly pawn). Good job!

The chat is a fun idea, the graphics are nice but it doesn't feel like our little guy can do much against the waves and hero ^^
Managed to take the enemy tower down to half health but then the tables turned :)
Congrats for finishing it!

Loved it ! The music could have been better (quite annoying like that). But you had time to add sound and that's great enough + great game :)

Ha ha! Very clever and unusual. Games about games forever! Did you make some of the sound effects with your voice? Love that.

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
