This was my first Ludum Dare. I ended up working by myself… and actually the main reason I am even doing this is to find collaborators. I did all the pixel art from scratch and would very much like some feedback because I am kind of new at it. At first I didn’t really like the theme, but once I brainstormed some classic single screen games I had enjoyed in the past (SmashTV), I realized it wouldn’t be so bad. I had some grand plans of dinosaurs, jetpacks, and rocket launchers, and I am glad at least 2 of those made this version. I wanted to do a lot more, but that was probably my noobishness. I love making chiptunes/erocktronic music, but I didn’t have time. I was trying to make it so people could make maps using Tiled Map Editor, or at least load multiple maps during gameplay, but no time. The one thing I did right was to use some of my old Unity Scripts and enter the jam instead of the compo… maybe compo next time. I will add more dinos, weapons, maps, and block types, and some music.

Here is my entry:

I am in (for jam)

This is my first Ludum Dare, so I thought I would just do the jam rather than stress out and end up not doing it at all.

My friend will be helping me, and I will be using some scripts I wrote for unity last year for the base (renderer, map parser, that ok?), so hopefully I will have plenty of time to get some gameplay done. I had a few sprites I was using for the base, but I will do them all from scratch, because I want my pixeling judged. I also make sort of chiptunes music, but a bit more beat rock… Im calling it erocktronic. I might do tracks from scratch if there is time, but maybe just use some of my existing tracks and opt out of that category.

I will be using:

– Unity

– Tiled Map Editor

– Cosmigo Pro Motion, Pyxel Edit, Sprite Anything (iOS)

– Sublime Text 3

– BFXR or maybe record sound effects

 

I will try to stream, but if it makes me uncomfortable or slows me down too much,

I will just record it and upload it later.

PROGRESS :)

Hey all, just thought i’d give a quick update on my progress. basically your a bank robber breaking into a bank(NO SHIT), and you have to fight your way in. The concept isn’t very creative but i am making it in 2.5d so it’s one hell of a challenge. So far iv’e got the engine going(Lots of bugs but its workable), sprites and and am in the process of adding the shooting mechanism

Just testing my wepons

I plan to participate in LD23. Had such a blast last time and was really pleased with what I came up with, even if it wasn’t that good. This time I will be trying to create a 2.5d game using a custom engine I’ve been designing. Never know how these things will work out until you ¬†put them in a game and see how they play. In case anyone is silly enough to try to learn an amatuer engine in one day and use it for the compo, here it is.¬†Anyway, the tools:

Langauge: Java (so I can distribute the applet on the web, probably should just learn flash at some point)

Engine: Custom 2.5D engine (because I’m silly like that)

Graphics: Paint.NET (an old stand-by)

Sound: Audacity (I plan to make my own sound effects and then distort them to something hopefully cool)

Time Lapse: Chronolapse (though I can’t figure out how to get it to record just my second monitor. I may just have to write a script to trim all the images it creates so that it only shows the second monitor)

 

Good luck, everybody!

A Batman version of my LD 21 entry

Hi all,

I1’ve been reading a lot of Batman comics lately and today I had a little time , so I decided to change some sprites and sounds in my LD21 entry: Carol and The Haunted Castle to make it look like a Batman game… this is what I did, hope you like it… you have to save Robin who has been kidnapped by The Joker and… you know the rest.

The game isn’t finished yet and the Batman sprites were made by Pegalulu

Best regards
