It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for! Well, statistically none of you even know about this game, but that’s besides the point. ūüėČ

Snowman Sumo is, well, a sumo game about snowmen. Roll around to grow in size, then use your increased heft to knock the other snowman off the island. Play against a friend, from the comfort of your browser window.

There’s still some polish to add – notably there’s no audio yet. I’d also like to add a mechanic where collisions knock snow off both of you, but I’ll see if I get to that.

Taggle – A 2 Player game of tag (with invisibility)

Taggle is a two player game of tag/hide and seek, where one of the players, the Collector, can toggle his/her visibility.

It’s the Collector’s job to collect little bits (cubes), and the Chaser’s job (the other player), to tag the Collector.

When the tag is made, the players switch roles. The first player to collect 10 bits wins.

Perhaps the entry page for the game describes it better

Enjoy :)

It’s hard to belive, but it’s not even a week after we finished our work on Losing it and moved on with our lives. Bud even after the three days of development, Ludum Dare didn’t end for me. Quite the opposite. I started checking different games from other creators and damn… There are really many great game developers.

I saddens me, that I will never be able to try all of the 2497 entries, but I can just hope, that the community really chooses the best among the bests.

So till now, I tried and played more than 50 entries. I know that’s nothing compared to other users, but taking in account my busy life, it’s more than I expected. And I thought it would be nice to choose few of the games I enjoyed the most and let other people know about these little masterpieces. It’s easy for a really well made game to get lost in the sea of other entries, so I took my time and decided to introduce you to a handful of creations I enjoyed: (Not in particular order)

1. A happy place

– More of an atmospheric experience than a classic form of a game, but if you don’t mind these kind of projects, you can’t go wrong with A happy place. This, again, is something I would describe as illustration of interactive art, but I let you decide on this matter.

2. NOT THE ELEPHANT
link

– Short, fun and impressively polished. This 3D experince puts you in the role of a sculptor, who tries to carve an alephant from a stone cube. The truth is, you are not really carving into the stone, but rather trying to get rid of the stone parts covering the elephant. But watch out. You can’t hit the sculpture itself, so your destruction can become a bit tricky. Extremely fun!

3. Planet Corp

– I have no idea how the guys managed to finish a game so polished, but Planet Corp is fun, pretty and even well designed. It doesn’t come with any amazingly innovative ideas, but enhances old concepts and makes them fresh. Definitely a nice entry.

4. Ridiculous Glitchez

– It’s hard to get into the gameplay at the beginning, but once you get used to it, you are rewarded with fun and catchy mechanics. I admit, I am very fond of shiny and chaotic effects, but if they don’t hurt your eyes, you will enjoy a very appealing experience. Maybe it’s not for everyone, but it’s definitely worth a try!

5. Yojimbrawl!

Grab a friend and try this crazy 2-player fighter. A combination of classic fighter genre and a little bit of Nidhogg makes this game a unique title. Multiplayer entries get easily lost in the heap, but this one is worth your time.

So, thanks for checking this list and give those cool games a try! They totally deserve it!

I just realized I haven’t posted an update on the site yet!

I’m making a 2-player co-op fire-fighting game. Fire monsters appear and set trees on fire, and you can spray foam on everything! What could be more fun?

Here’s the title screen:

Not all the art is in the game, and I also have to add sound effects, actually save highscores, and do more playtesting. I’m glad I’m doing the jam this time! It’s been a good experience.
