Best of luck to everyone taking part \m/

Finally it’s time!

I’ll be sleeping for the next 3 days to be ready for this!

As usual, I’ll try to do it all by myself with Photoshop + Construct 2 + BFXR + Ableton Live.

If you need some musicians, I’m part of a french community that surely would lend you a hand!

Just write a post on twitter for @remix_live. I already know that @AS_Ynitsed want to help some projects, you could ask her!

Good luck everyone, I hope the theme will be fun!

Hi again!

I am in again. And i hope this ld will be fine! WHY? Because LD34 i was striked with hard depression. Now i have different medications so everything will be (i hope) fine.  LD35 was bad too. My uncle got brain bleeding and in three LD days died in hospital.

Now, everybody is healthy i have lots of antidepressants aaand i am ready!

Ok, what i use?

As always, i will use:

  • Game Maker Studio for “programming”
  • Pyxel edit, paint.net, Blender3D or Gimp for graphics.
  • Music maker jam or Rytmik ultimate for music
  • Bfxr or google for SFX

How i trained?

I participated in GM48 jame. This jam is same as LD bud you can use only Game Maker. I created shitty game called BUGS.

DOWNLOAD

This game is totally shitty, but i was in first half so… I am satisfied 😀

How i preparing?

Well… I planning to go back to the roots. My best games was horror genre so i reading Lovecraft, Poe and watching Paranormal Witness series.

Aaaand… That’s all! Good luck!

I’m in, it would seem

I just realised how close LD is! I’ll likely use Java/LWJGL, since I just seem to enjoy that the most.

Surviving LD (and of course, I’m in!)

Hi everyone!

I’m really excited about LD this weekend. The other day I was writing some tweets with tips for succeeding in a game jam –I have participated in many– and a friend suggested that I should compile them in a post and develop them a bit further.

And so I did! Here’s the article: Surviving Ludum Dare. I hope it can be of help.

PS: Attaching a comic I draw after a missed LD because I was on a business trip :_(

3D Rendering Engine for LD Jam!

1 day ago | August 23rd, 2016 6:43 am

Hey guys! I made a simple rendering engine for LD Jam and it turns out it takes kinda much time. So i decided to use my own rendering engine ive done in the last couple of weeks. Here i rendered a floating island exported from blender. Unfortunately i dont think ill really get textures really well (as i’m not that good at art) . Still, ill try my best.

2D illustrator looking for a team, actually.

Here’s my first and only game, for which I did the illustrations and animations (it was my first time ever doing anything digital and animating, actually):

Drunkula: A Post-Mortem.

Also, my tumblr, if someone wants to check some of my work:

I am in. I think. No, I am definitely in. I think.

I’ll either use C++/OpenGL and a Custom Engine (but its still early in development so probably not), C++/OpenGL barebones (:o) or Java/LWJGL.

For art and I’ll use Paint.NET and my old trusty lack of artistic creativity.

For music, I may try to record something, as I have never done that before. Although I would still rather complete a game.

New Voting System?

Posted by
1 day ago | August 23rd, 2016 4:51 am

As we know, the August event is going to be unranked due to serious cheating/majority community vote. What I am concerned about is the next LD in December. I’m assuming that at some point, we are going to have to reimplement a voting system to have a more competitive feel to Ludum Dare.

The current system can be broken quite easily with people voting for games they played little/none of. Fake accounts are also a huge problem as they can not easily be found and can be replicated very fast. I’ve seen streamers who give all their viewers 5-star ratings simply because they were watching the stream.

We need a more secure voting system that doesn’t allow this to happen. I have a couple of ideas:

A download-coolness system

A coolness rating would be given for downloads/web-link-clicks instead of how many votes you have cast out.

This could then be extended to check if the user has spent at least 5 minutes (or any time) after pressing download before they vote.

An anonymous system

This system would make it so that you cannot use a URL to access a game, you cannot use the search bar to find a game and the creator of the game remains anonymous. (But after the event, all the above is allowed.)

The only way to play games would be on the random/most coolness page. This would make it so fake accounts cannot easily find a game they want to rate, making the entire process much harder and slower.

But these are just some of my ideas, let me know if you have any of your own.
