A Catastrophic Date

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014 4:10 pm

Hey, just wanted to make a post talking about the game I made (azuritereaction) with a friend (sweetielise); it’s called A Catastrophic Date. (Hey, we only had a few hours to come up with a name!)












It’s a cute little visual-novel-esque game (no nudity/sex/romance in it though) that we thought up, and it was the first time I’d completed a game project since… probably 16 or so years ago, when I was making games with Klik & Play and Multimedia Fusion 1 back when I was about 12 years old or so.

The game itself is really short, there’s about 10 or so possible endings with 7 of them being unique, including a secret ending, too :)

Sweetielise did the art in probably 8 hours, and the coding took me about the same amount of time, but we got continually distracted by Awesome Games Done Quick during most of Saturday, haha.

That said… I will probably NEVER program a visual novel game like this in Multimedia Fusion 2 again. Easily one of the most frustrating programming experiences I’ve ever had, for sure. Still had a lot of fun making it though, and I hope a lot of you have fun playing it!

Additionally, feel free to check out our main work on YouTube, Twitch, and a webcomic that I write with the links below! Looking forward to the Jam sessions coming up, we’ll likely do another game for that (and any future MiniLD’s too) :)

First Jam that me and my friend have done together (His first jam ever and my second)

This is our attempt. It is a spy thriller in which you infiltrate a supervillain’s volcano base and stop his evil scheme!

It is somewhat unfinished and I think we may have been a little ambitious with what we wanted to do, stuff like the animation took way to long and its still very rough.

It’s very much WIP but give it a go!


Movement – Left and Right Arrow Keys
Jump – Up Arrow
Open Grate – Down Arrow
Crouch Toggle – C
Judo Chop – Space
Hide In Shadows – Hold F
Open Doors and Activate Checkpoints – Enter


– Infiltrate the base and get to the level exit
– Avoid guards and lasers
– Judo Chop guards to disable if needed
– Use the shadowy doorways to hide in
– Some doors need a keycard
– Hit enter on the red terminals to set as active checkpoint

Our progress

I think our game is coming good along… this is the first Ludum Dare I have participated in and I think the result gets better and better. I have submitted it but we are still working on it.

I have made a level selection system and a few levels, some basic controls and gameplay.

Hopefully we will be able to make some more levels.

We are 3 persons working on the game. We are 13 and 12 years old.

Screenshot update. Working on a spy thriller stealth game in which you have to thwart a supervillains evil scheme inside his volcano base! Trying to do all these animations is hard!

I had a great time with LD #28, although I made a few amateur mistakes since it was my first ludum dare and in fact, my first ever public released game. so I’m gonna chill and do LD48. :3

I’m going to be using:

– Game Maker 8.0
– Audacity
– Fruityloops 10
– Photoshop

I’m not sure on the theme yet, but it might be 3D.

I think it’s time…

Since August of 2012 I have been intending to participate in the Ludum Dare. But, unmotivated and intimidated, I have yet to work up the courage to actually follow through with my promises of participation. But I’m finally doing it! First game I’ll have ever made, first Ludum Dare event, yet I’ve been programming since 4/10/12. Hopefully it won’t suck, which is the reason I chose to do the MiniLD before an actual LD. I’m jumping right into the deep end! Let’s do this! MiniLD #48!
