## LD36 wallpaper

For anyone using a 329×277 monitor, I made you a wallpaper! You can use it for a little while but remember to credit me!! (If you can’t see the image then someone must have stolen it…)

In the above wallpaper, you see a glimpse of the number line. A number line is a complicated mathematical concept meaning a line of numbers. The wallpaper only features a short bit though, because people have come up with quite many other numbers too (for example, 1, 7264, 25, -1, and goooooooooooogle).

36 is one of the tourist attractions on our sight-seeing trip through the number line. It’s both a square number, a triangular number, and a circular number at the same time. If you have a room consisting of exactly one of them, the sum of the room’s elements is 36 – although no formal proof of this has ever been written.

But if you have two of them chilling out in the same room, their sum is 72, the amount of hours in the LD jam. Coincidentally, 72 divided by two is 36, which has piqued the interest of the international community of angry bloggers seeing a conspiracy everywhere.

Now, if these two 36s couldn’t find a way out of the room, one could insert the other into a phone number to make an international direct-dialphone call to Hungary with the code +36. They could then call Englkyklös “Glxblt” Vasarnàpzsczitzocwek (no relation to the popular car salesman) to ask him about his opinion on the Māori legend about the creation of mankind where 36 gods assembled the various parts of the first human.

Good old Englkyklös would answer in his usual wisdom, paraphrasing a carefully selected contemplative Zen koan: “Would you fucking stop it with these prank calls already? This is the 36th time.”

Meanwhile somewhere else, but still on Earth, a scientist (age 36) returns to his laboratory, deep in the basement of a lucratively funded research complex. He meets with an army major with 36 medals, and they both turn their keys in two 36 secure locks at the same time, opening massive blast doors. The scientist then carries on, putting on equipment he got for free from the Australian basketball team, The Adelaide 36ers.

It’s not protective equipment or anything, he’s just a fan of the team.

The scientist then carries a piece of krypton from the hazardous materials storage using a 36-inch pipe wrench (known colloquially in the American oilfield business as “a 36” – and in Europe as “a 91.44”).

He carefully places the piece on a desk, rips off the warning labels about krypton exposure from the 36 kilograms of explosives someone’s left lying around again, takes out an electron microscope, and zooms in as close as he can get.

Okay, this is weird– Whoops, the microscope was nowhere close to the piece. Hehe, I guess accidents happen even to professionals! The scientist reminisces about the time he lucked out a perfect score of 36 on the ACT tests by just answering questions randomly, and concludes total chaos is the foundation of good science.

After watching 36 videos from the weird part of Youtube to procrastinate, he then adjusts the position of the microscope 36 times before getting it right.

Finally, the results are conclusive: the atomic number of krypton is still 36 today.

But after all this, where does the concept of Love come in? What’s so special about Niels Bohr anyway? And who the hell ordered 36 extra large pizzas to my address? I’m not gonna pay for these, that’s for sure.

Find out, or don’t, AND MORE, as Jwatt does Ludum Dare 36.

After thirty hours of work, I can proudly say I finished my game for this Ludum Dare.

I called the game “Nothing is impossible”. Is a platform game where you must control two characters in a split screen, each screen represent the black and the white and this create a constrat between the character and the wall.

The game consist, as I said before, in the control the two characters dodging the boxes and stakes you will find in the way, all this while they run forward.

My intention was do the game very very difficult, but at the same time do a addictive game and I think I finally achieve.

But well, let’s cut the talk. You can find the game here.

Sorry for no add potatoes, serious, i’m very sorry

## Well

## I think I’m in

Hey everyone out there!

My name is Christian Schäl and I like to code games. I’ve been visiting, playing and commenting Ludum dare since last year, but never participated in one. Most common reasons: Not enough time, was on vacation, school pressure,  and also once a lack of motivation and ideas.

But not now! I am really looking forward to participate in this Ludum Dare.

I am a 15 year old boy from Germany and started programming games in the age of nine or ten. My first steps started in batch and VB Script, but after some time I started working with Visual Basic. I felt awesome when I finished my first “real” game in VB called “Earth Invaders”. Like space invaders. Some levels, bosses and… a game.

With the age of 13 I realized VB is not the best language for making games. I gave C++ and, after some failed attempts, Java a chance. I was terrible. But I never gave up (sounds like in a movie right? (; ) and with the age of 14 1/2 I finally finished a game written in Java.

Since then I was getting better and better in making games.

So, that was my part. Now tell me a bit of you. Oh right…

I hope that you see my game in the future. (When you do, you might give it a try.)
