Finally Started

Yeah I know, I’ve left it super late, but with falling a sleep Friday evening and hanging out with friends Saturday, this was the best time I could start.

My idea is that you play an actor who is running late for a show where he plays a monster, all he needs to do is find you’re costume and get out. However you have no memory of where you put the costume items, they could be anywhere. So you must search the house and leave the room before time runs out.

This is what I’ve managed to produce in HaxeFlixel, with the use of Piskel for the sprites.

Hey Ludum Dare Community!

A long while ago I made a game idea generator which combines two games at random and gives you an elevator pitch. I recently came back to it and remembered it existed, and felt I should share it with everyone here!

Best of all, I’m looking for you to submit your games to this website, to better help those who are using it. If you’ve made any game projects, or know of some other indie games, feel free to submit those games to be included in the shuffling list.

Anyways, that’s all! Feel free to check it out here and share some of your favorite combinations!

Thanks!

Ok, minimalism…. I googled it and the first image it returned was a art piece by Piet Mondrian:

And my initial reaction was to create a casual puzzle/touch game so to break my pattern of platformergames and since I missed the “F this game jam” and I hate casual puzzle games I’m going to make a casual puzzle game.

Hopefully I can achieve something as I basically have no time at all this weekend.

Hey there LDers!

I’m making a roguelike using C and Emscripten to make a web entry.

I have nothing to show you for now but I can tell you it creates rooms in a level and is able to display them as text (images incoming)!

In the meantime, have a sausage or two:

Yummy!

Goodmorning, goodbye

Here is a first sketch of my game-idea: “Let’s go cave-burrowing” or “Eeat or die” (haven’t decided).

You fly/flap around, puke explosive stuff and eat (or dies).

post-mortem

well, i shoulda wrote this the day after, but whatever.

 this was my first actual entry in a competition on the interwebs, ever. HAVE MERCY ON ME! actually i couldn’t really come up with anything decent that didn’t require a physics engine. i didn’t have one ready so i had to make do with what i had. which was nothing. not even kidding. i had jack squat.

actually one of the ideas that came to mind involved a spin on games like bust-a-move and snood and all those. it was a spaceship game where you had to get to the core of a circular space station by knocking off the hull. the hull would be made of different colored hexes or circles and you would shoot colored shots that would connect to it if it was the wrong color, or pop them all and possibly break off sections. i actually wanted to have an asteroid field of random collections of these blocks that you could tractorbeam and catapult at the station. you’d have a weapon you’d have to charge and blast the core with once you had an opening. hmm. that’s still a good idea. i didn’t need a physics engine for that. why didn’t i do that one?

anyways, i pretty much kicked back and took it easy for the entire one. had alot of family trouble keeping me from the project, too. wasn’t a pretty scene there.

 so yeah. i’m sure i could have put more effort into the game, but it was a pretty crappy idea and i knew there wasn’t any substance to it. i saw it as one of the Dud entries, just there to fill out the ranks and to get my name out there. also, it was a chance to get some funnies in. i think i aughta score ok for that. got some giggles out of the gf, it did.

wrapping up, i’d say there’s no way i’m gonna beat out some of the other entries. they were looking super good and i knew i didn’t have a chance in hell. i had a blast though! good luck everyone!
