Finally finished my sprite sheet for miniLD. Hopefully it looks good in someone’s game!
The second one is based on @Dittomat’s marker sketches with his permission.
I liked the look and style of them so much that I figured I’d make a sprite sheet for the little guys! 😀
I have to say, I’m very happy and surprised at the fact that I managed to come in the top 100 for two categories because I can’t say I thought I’d beat 1000 in anything 😀
I was in the last 2 big Ludum Dares and my last game Zombie Slaughter, wasn’t as good as my previous game, because of the engine change.
I like the idea behind this MiniLD, number 59, and i want to make a game for this.
My Idea would be a combination of Tetris and a Defence-The-Flag-Game.
You will drop Block and they shoort something in a direction, damaging enemies.
I will start today with the graphics.
Added rigged rooms that can be positive or negative! And I need a name for this game.
I’m horrible at naming things.
I’m thinking the goal here is to survive for as long as you can, maybe something with scores?
I’m pretty much done with most of it at this point, I might add some particle effects or something but aside from that all I need is sounds and a menu and score (Also death) system, you know, the smaller stuff.
Well, my first ludum dare is done. I feel pretty happy with the score I got; I though I would be in the thousands as a novice programmer and this being my first ludum dare. I supposed 33 place out of about 300 people is good right?
Is this a respectable score?
At May 11th ago, the result for Ludum Dare 32 was announced. My pdf game “A Knight and A Line” was an entry in the Jam category. So, here’s the result:
The result made happy especially this is the second time I participated in Ludum Dare. Thank you very much for all people who played and rated my game and also who gave comment and feedback and also who gave me a trophy . I also happy to spread the existence of pdf game, which after reading all the comments of my game, pdf games are still rare. I also hope I can improve my skill for the future
So far I have made a tilemap system, and random tilesheet functionality at runtime.
Still need to figure out what I want to do for the actual game though (pfft).
Finally after several days, the 1.1.0 update has finished. It took a lot of times adding more assets, more dialogues, more concepts, and more. Also, the total page was 126 pages and after update, it is more than 500 pages. Even with 500 pages, the file size is only around 1.4 MB. Also, it was plannedfinished week ago, but I was busy so I managed to finish the update today.
The game can be played/download from this page: http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-32/?action=preview&uid=20503 (in the Post Mortem).
Also, some peek of the screenshots of the updated “A Knight and A Line”:
Also, here’s the list of the update:
I also have updated the description in the game page, to make it more fit with the setting of the game. Also, for a comparison with the previous update, the version 1.0.1 will still be available. Have fun and enjoy the new and longer adventure of the game!
Where do I begin? How can I thank you Ludum Dare? We at Givit Game Studios are still very young in the game development area. We are a South African based company and would like to bring game development more to south side of the world, although there are a lot of developers here in South Africa, we urge you to do more and develop more.
Our game was The Yellow Jacket Man, and the response was good. We are thinking of making the game a complete game and make it commercial. So we would like you guys to go play our game again and write in the comments if it is worthy to be a commercial game.
So thank you again Ludum Dare this was amazing.
Play it now!!! http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-32/?action=preview&uid=40092
So, it’s funny how LD always has such a crazy effect on me. This time I was only able to work for 18 hours total (maybe even a little less) on my entry. I’m still really happy about it because overall I was just looking to get SOMETHING out and it managed to score pretty much straight 3s – not too shabby!
Since then, I’ve been expanding and building in the things that I originally intended to have (time permitting…which it didn’t). A lot of people requested features in the comments that I already had planned (some, like bonus time for deliveries, were actually already IN the LD version) and now you’ll see the game continue to develop!
First is a quick shot of one of the locations where you’ll have to stock up on an item. Need more burritos for your deliveries? Head on over to the best burrito place in RJD!
Burritoad is one of the many restaurants that will be present in the game. Unlike in the prototype, players will not always have an endless supply of items. Restocking will be something you have to take into account on your runs, so KNOW YOUR FOOD STOPS!
Especially if you want to have happy customers! And not…you know…angry…ones.
YIKES! CUSTOMER EMOTION!
So this is the basic design for what will pop up on screen after a successful delivery. The game will tell you how far away you are from 2 possible delivery spots and what food item is required to satisfy that customer’s cravings. You’ll need to be able to deliver the amount of food and get it to the customer on time if you want that tip! Depending on how well you do, the customer will respond in a text bubble containing some of those choice expressions!
So what can you do with money? Oh MAYBE BE A BUNNY ROBOT…THING!?
I’m in your house. Customizin’ your sprites.
So one of the big things I’ve been working on is making it so that you can change your sprite in the game. Eventually this will be an entire menu on its own, but I’m excited for how silly it already looks with the interchangeable parts. My hope is that players will like mixing and matching everything. Eventually I’d like for there to be even more animations, but each one takes a little time and I’m on a tight schedule during the week.
So that’s where I’m at! I hope you enjoyed this look at the future of Run -> Jump ^ Deliver, and if you played the game and voted thank you again for your time and feedback!
Until next time!
