Okay well its not quite complete, the waves of enemies could do with some more work but I have my mum coming up from London to visit me in 30 mins so im gonna call it quits here.

So, finally it has a name, I have called it “48 Hours Later” :) Its not technically true as I have only had 40 hours to do it, but oh well!

Overall im pretty happy with my first Ludum Dare entry, im very tired right now and have a banging headache, but thats all part of the fun right?

So onto the game. First some shots:


Okay so if you have been following waaaay back my original intention was to make a game with the same sort of art style as World of Goo but with the game mechanics of Boom Stick. I think I have stayed pretty true to that original idea.

Basically you fight against waves of enemies that float across the screen. There are currently only 10 waves, I would have liked more and with more variety but oh well 😉

The theme of the competition was “Enemies as Weapons”. I have incorporated that theme by having the enemies drop giblets when they die. You then have a certain amount of time to pick up those giblets and fire them back at the enemies. Enemies as weapons!

So as a disclaimer: im sure the game has many bugs and things, I have run out of time to do much in the way of testing and optimising. If you find any bugs however drop a comment I would love to hear about them as I plan to release this to a few flash portals, so would like to get those bugs fixed 😉

Anyways enough jibber jabber. A few more shots then the game is below:


You have to play the game on my site, I cant get flash to work here :(

Today, after incitement by a CHAIN letter, a horde of villagers, armed with CHAINs, CHAIN guns, and CHAINsaws, attacked a shopping district in Washington DC, having crossed the CHAIN bridge. There our hero, a CHAIN smoker, sat nursing his drink at a coffee CHAIN. Killing the first villager to disturb his drinking, he took up the dead man’s CHAIN and proceed to battle the forces of evil. Little did he know that the same evil mastermind that sent the CHAIN letter also equipped his pawns with chemical tanks that would set off a CHAIN reaction when combined.
Our Hero
This..is..my..BOOMSTICK!
