Ludum Dare 31 Favourites So Far!

Posted by (twitter: @gamepopper)
Sunday, December 21st, 2014 7:31 am

So after rating 100 games for Ludum Dare, I thought I’d talk a bit about a few of my favourites from the compo/jam. They may not be the best out of the competition, but these were the ones that I find have an aspect of good entries that each of these succeed at.

Tightrope Theatre

This is the entry done by brilliant flash game developer Jussi Simpanen, aka AdventureIslands. He always does games for jams big and small and his entries usually bring a quirky design and incredible polish to them, and this one is no exception. In Tightrope Theatre you must travel from A to B, all while riding a unicycle avoiding fire, spikes and the ground below. The entire game is 24 levels long, and feels very complete for a game done in two days, although you kind of wish there was more. Knowing that Jussi tends to add new stuff to his entries every now and then, maybe there will be more to this entry.

Jumping ‘n Jumping

This is an example of how you should achieve a innovative gameplay in 48 hours, you use one mechanic with a unique spin and give it as much potential as you can. In this case, the mechanic of the game is jumping, and the unique spin is that your jumps are limited, but will increase depending on how you play. Eduardo uses the mechanic in a room where you have to jump to survive and you get this gem.

Screen Mover

Most game jams have a theme, and as a developer you are free to interpret that theme to whatever for your game: you can use a literal route (in LD31, that would mean literally running the entire game on one screen), the metaphorical route or the technical route. With Screen Mover, Sh1rogane decided to go beyond literal and technical with the theme to produce something that may look like a simple platform prototype, until you quickly realise you have to move the game window to progress. The only issue with this idea is that keyboard input it locked while the window moves, but the post jam version does fix this.

The Hyperbeam

Sometimes you don’t have to make a game that’s fun to make it a good entry, you can tell a story, show off some great music or in this case, make some really beautiful graphics. The puzzle game elements are clever, but this game is really good at showing off bloom and neon. It just makes it look wonderful, and the music is really soothing as well. As you may tell from my entry, I love neon glow, and this game does a great job at showing it off.

Swotch

If all else fails, just make a game that is fun to play, and make it addictive for an added bonus. This game’s style reminds me a lot of Terry Cavanagh’s Super Hexagon, and since the developer is planning an Android/iOS release, I recommend him get Chipzel to do music for the game.

Don’t forget to play my entry Glow Drop if you haven’t already.

H.T.P – Postmortem

We made it! Our second completed LD. For the LD31 jam, we made a silly little puzzle/platformer thingy called H.T.P. Please try it out!

H.T.P title screen

H.T.P by Rotten Mage

We drew some inspiration from Don’t Move by Steve Richey, and created a small platformer with some emergent gameplay. We think it’s cute, and had a blast making it. I think we’re learning our limitations, and are getting better at limiting the scope of our projects and knowing when to cut stuff out. That said, there were so many more things we wanted to add. Maybe we’ll do up a post-LD version.

In total, we spent around 2 days making the game. The game was coded in Haxe with HaxeFlixel, art was done with Pyxel Edit, and sound effects with bfxr and Audacity.

What could have been done better: focus! We kept getting distracted from the project, and spent far too much time on stuff that could have been done in half the time if we had put in more effort.

Overall, this jam was a fun and great learning experience for us, and we hope it was the same for the rest :D

I’ve been working on a mix of city management and tower defense. Building seems to be working now. Still a long way to go.

OK, it’s 2AM here in Czech Republic and i think my first LD game won’t get any better. And I’m too sleepy to write a blog post…

It’s more experiment  rather than complete game, but it was great experience and I’ve enjoyed making the graphs…

Windows 7

FlashDevelop

as3 & flixel

Entity Management

So I’ve been making small changes and additions to what was my Ludum Dare basecode, and its getting to the point where I think it might actually be useful for other people. This begs the question: What do people actually need/want in an entity/component management system? Anything you can think of, please post in the comments, or tweet to me @nico_m__

 

Note that my system is for HaxeFlixel, and is already available on github, the point of this post is just as a general question though, whether you use flixel or not, what would you want/need in an entity/component management system?

 

Thanks:),

Nico

I’m back in!

After throwing a hissy fit over the theme last time I’ve decided, on retrospect, that the issue wasn’t with the theme, but with my incredibly narrow and literal-minded interpretation of the theme.

So I’m back in and I’m going to figure out something for this theme regardless of how much I’m inevitably going to hate it.

Stuff:

  • IntelliJ – Code
  • Flixel – Framework
  • Pickle – Graphics
  • AutoTileGen – Graphics
  • Bfxr – Sound
  • DAME – Map Editor
  • Sunvox – Music (ahaha unlikely)

Here’s hoping this time around goes better than last!

4th Time In!

Hey guys, I’ve been taking part in the Ludum Dare competitions since April last year, and it would be an honour to take part for another year!

This time, I’ll be switching up my tools. Last year I primarily used Game Maker 8 on Windows, however I’ve recently turned to free solutions instead:

  • IDE: Sublime Text 3
  • Framework: HaxeFlixel (Haxe/OpenFL/Flixel). Definitely check it out if you haven’t already. It’s absolutely fantastic! (apparently they’ll be supporting consoles soon, that’s awesome!)
  • Art/Asset creation: GIMP
  • elementary OS. It’s a free Linux operating system based on Ubuntu. It looks amazing, and it’s lightning fast. Not sure about livestreaming with it though. We’ll see, I’ll do some tests soon.
  • As for music, I’ll switch over to Windows 7 half way through to use FL Studio.

The game I make will be uploaded to Itch.io, GameJolt, IndieDB, and the Google Play Store (see point below)

Expect the game I make to be released on all desktop operating systems (either Flash or native compilations), and Android Phones and Tablets. I will likely design the game with phones in mind.

Good luck everybody!
