Blind Date Micro-LD

A few of us in IRC did a Micro-LD to test out the blind date concept – each participant makes a set of graphics, and then gets assigned someone else’s set to use to make a game.

Myself, Edwardoka, fydo, Almost, and MrDude did graphics. Fydo didn’t start on a game, and Edwardoka and I gave up – that leaves two (very good) entries:
FLUTTER by Almost (MrDude’s graphics): http://filesmelt.com/downloader/FLUTTER.zip
Space Dodger by MrDude (fydo’s graphics): http://pycron-ld48.googlecode.com/files/Space-Dodger.zip

Just thought I’d give a shout-out :)

micro Ludum Dare!

Hello everyone!

I was hanging out on IRC with some pals when Bleck, DrPetter, and I decided to have a fun little “microLD”, where normal LD rules apply, but you get only 6 hours to develop your game. It’s quite flexible in that you can choose which 6 hours you want to use. (Hooray for the honor system)

There is an added twist that I announced the theme at least a day before everyone started, so you got to think about what you wanted to make.

The theme is/was ‘Utopia’.

Here are the final entries: (From what I’ve heard, I’m still waiting on entries from philhassey and mjau)

Bleck – Snowtopia –  http://www.omnisu.com/files/snowtopia.zip
DrPetter – Utopia – http://www.cyd.liu.se/~tompe573/drpetter_utopia.zip
Fydo – Paradise Gone – http://fydo.net/programming/ParadiseGone-fydo-microLD1.zip

I certainly had a lot of fun making my entry. I had about 2 hours to kill on a busride a few hours before I started developing the game, so I planned it all out on paper. It worked out surprisingly well, in my opinion. Post your comments! 😀

And of course, it’s not too late to participate. Since this isn’t really an official compo by any means, feel free to set aside 6 hours of your choice to make a game and put a link in the comments. Hooray!
