Hi to everyone! :)

Do you remember my entry Bipolar World placed #17 at  Ludum Dare 30?

I’ve finally menaged to release it, now it is called Mercurial Story and you can find it on Newgrounds or Armorgames!

It is also available on Android (Playstore) and iOS (Appstore)!


I need your help to get this on Steam, so if you like it please vote YES on Steam Greenlight! :)

Thanks in advance to everyone, I hope to enter the upcoming Ludum Dare 31! :)

Hi !

After missing out on two LDs I’m happy to announce that we’re back for our second jam!

I’m currently gathering the team, working again with some of the great talents that brought you Save Octavius on LD 29 and introducing new ones :-)

On the technical side of things we will be switching from Haxe to Unity/C# as our development tool, thus becoming much more efficient (well, I hope so!).

Good luck everyone and have fun participating in LD 31!

So this will be my 2nd Ludum Dare. I took part in LD30 with a couple of friends under the team name The Lag Pack and made out first attempt at a game called Escape Earth. However, since then I have been learning to use Flash and Action Script 3, so I’m wanting to test out my new Flash skills and will therefor be entering solo this time.


Graphics: Photoshop CC + Flash CC

Programming: Flash CC / AS3

We are in!

We are two people cooperating to do the Jam thing (It’s our first one, too, and it’s a shame you can’t work as a team for the compo :( ). Here’s the tools at our disposal of which we may use all, some or almost none:


Graphics: GIMP, Blender, Inkscape

Programming: C/C++

Sound/Music: still needs to be figured out…


There might be a stream of the programming and (less likely) of the art, as our programmer has the more powerful PC and is hogging it.



I’m in, Come on and slam and welcome to the Jam

Platofrm – Web

Language – Dart

Graphics – Horrific programmer art made in GIMP, OH GOD MY EYES, NOT THE EYES

Sound – Sfxr

Music – MilkyTracker or something

This is my first LD, but I’ve watched other developers taking part many times before, now it’s mine turn.

In for the first time

My wife has agreed to do most of the baby care that weekend so I can try this out. <3

Language / Engine: GameMaker or Haxe, or C#. I think GameMaker may be the easy way to go with it being my first time on a time limit.
Paint.NET or Gimp

I’m (most likely) in!

Hi there! If everything goes according to plan I am going to be a part of Ludum Dare for the second time very soon.

The plan is to do things differently this time! And I mean like seriously, start with the music, maybe do some actual drawing instead of pixel art, sleep less, drink less… Of course this might drive me to a suicide but hey, no risk – no fun.

Then again my weapon of choice is Ruby with gosu gem.

Also, if you rememember Hot and Cold – you’re awesome and I love you.

Tech Valley Game Space presentation: Make it Juicy!

Hey, guys. I’m doing a presentation, live on, called Make it Juicy: Easy Ways To Make Your Game More Engaging on Tuesday, December 2nd, 7:00 PM EST. I’ll be discussing about techniques I use to improve the game feel. The presentation will be about an hour long, and I’ll have a chat-based Q & A at the end. See you there!

Third Ludum Dare in a row! I will be using Unity 4.5 (probably 2d), for the art and sfxr for sound (maybe)

This is my first LD (and first post, so I’m told an “I’m in” is appropriate). These past few months I’ve been doing a lot of porting with the ENIGMA game engine, so I’ll be using that for my submission. I’ll link to my Github fork, which has minor code fixes:

Graphics will mostly likely be done in the GIMP, and I’m still playing around with options for sound.

Good luck to everyone! Looking forward to this!

I’m in for the 2nd challenge!

I’m going to use Unity to do this again.

I made a 3D action puzzler in LD30 compo. Now I have been working on that project for 2 months.
The game-in-dev is being constantly updated on my Kongregate page to collect player feedback.

I would be grateful if you could have a play with it. Also if possible, leave some comment or just give a rate. :D
