First of all, thank you very much! It’s really great to see so many positive and constructive comments on Spinstar. It was a fun yet challenging 48 hours and it’s great to be able to make another compo entry after only managing to reach jam last time.

I’ve managed to play and vote on over 80 entries so far, and while there is still a week left of voting, I thought I’d show my five favourites thus far, as there have been many developers who have pulled off interesting and creative ideas based on the theme, and this LD had a really good theme.

Very well polished game that combines vertical space shooting with racing, while tracks can eventually get repetitive there is a really good challenge with multitasking between going along the track and shooting down enemy choppers and the like.

Statis Core by Eshford

One extremely good looking boss battle, I love my bullet hells and this one was both easy to jump into but hard to beat, but actually succeeding is very worthwhile!

As soon as I saw this gameplay gif, I was immediately reminded of an entry back in LD31 called Screen Mover. I definitely like to say this game definitely expands on the concept of your game window having an effect on the gameplay, and seeing a real window move around on the screen is captivating to me.

Some really nice low-poly graphics at work, this game does an interesting job at controlling flight that takes some getting used to, but feels great once you get the hang of it.

BlobWall by Sophie Houlden

It’s a shame that it doesn’t look finished (and I cannot rate it on any category) but out of all the entries I’ve seen which imitates the “Hole in the Wall” game show formula, this is probably the best executed one by design. Not to mention the camera work is brilliant, showing the perfect angle for each wall and position of the player.

Now go do Ludum Dare proud and PLAY AND VOTE!

Soulshifter Post-Mortem

(I had to look up what “Post-Mortem” meant because I was so confused at all the blog posts with it in the title. You better be grateful!)

Soulshifter is a game about killing enemies and stealing their forms (sounds morbid, I know). The enemies come in waves out of portals, and you must survive a set amount of waves (based on difficulty) to win. But that’s not all Soulshifter is. Soulshifter is a game about competition, about teamwork, about challenges, and about new experiences.

Me, Erik and Justin worked harder on Soulshifter than on any other game we’ve ever made. I programmed things that I had no clue how to program before we started. Justin made fantastic art in a style he had never tried before we started. Erik learned he was a way better musician than he ever thought he was before we started. We learned that we were a better team than we thought we would be before we started. Soulshifter, and by extension, Ludum Dare did and meant so much more to us than we ever thought it would.

Of course, we didn’t get everything we wanted into the game, but when has anyone ever began a Ludum Dare and finished with everything he wanted originally plus all the things he thought up along the way? We got a game we were happy with in the end, a solid base that could, and will be easily expanded in the future. We got a game that we were proud of, too.

The feedback we’ve gotten has been so wonderful, and everyone  has been so nice. We honestly can’t thank you all enough. Even if you left us a bad score, you will have shown us what we need to improve on next time, and we’re just as grateful to you too. We’ve had so much fun playing other people’s games, also, and it’s just made us feel even stronger that Ludum Dare is a great community of people that we want to meet and compete with every single time it runs.

TL;DR: (What a nasty word, how about this:) To summarize, our time last weekend and the following days after was amazing, we all enjoyed the competition, and all of you, the community. We’re happy with what our game became, and you’ll definitely see us next year. Happy game design,

– Ben, and everyone else at Toasted Games.

We’re back for another swanky Ludum Dare party! Starting us off are three highly unique games. With Eye Guy the Endless Runner, CyGlide a Transforming Flying Sim, and Andari Prime which takes you on a Handi-man’s Shapeshifting Adventure!

Henkan Pachinko now on WebGL

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016 8:31 pm


We have managed to solve some issues that didn’t let us make a WebGL build. But we did it!
So now, you don’t have to worry about which browser are you using.
However, WebGL is still experimental, and the graphics aren’t as fancy as on the other ports. So please, if you want to see it “prettier”, just play the Unity Web Player version or download a build.
Thanks for your attention!

Hello! My name is Jupiter Hadley and I want to record you games. If you would like your game to appear on my YouTube channel in a video compilation series, enter it in this sheet here. Every Ludum Dare I try to record hundreds of the games entered. At the end, I write about my favorites. :)

If your game is my favorite, I may even write about it and put a beautiful trophy on your profile.


Thank you!

This is our entry for Ludum Dare 35!

How about being an secret agent and catch some shapeshifter aliens?

Observe suspicious behaviour, use your taser to capture Reptilians in human form or kill them all with your gun when they morph into their real form!

For the first time, I didn’t have anything else I wanted to add when I posted my game. (Well, more content, but that’s something you almost always want more of.)

Apart from a slight issue with people getting stuck on the third level, (I need to work on my tutorials even more -.-), I have it exactly as I want it.

I love the concept too! #Humility
