UPDATE: Hey! I see we’ve received
20 22 entries to the MiniLD! Nice! Not a record-breaking number but I’m happy to see at least some people got inspired. The submission is going to remain open until the end of the week in case you need to finish a late entry… I actually ended up not having time to make an entry of my own so I’ll try making a late entry myself. As an aside, Global Game Jam is coming up at the end of the week. I wish everyone participating in that the best of luck!
It’s time for MiniLD 64. It will take place during the weekend of 22nd-24th.
The theme is…
Nintendo 64 was released almost 20 years ago in 1996. For MiniLD 64 I want to see some games inspired by the N64 and its games. This could mean for example:
* a game inspired by your favorite N64 game; maybe even a straight up remake.
* a game done to look like an N64 game with low-poly 3D graphics
* a 3D reimagining of a 2D game. Perhaps of one of your earlier LD entries?
I’m definitely hoping to see some 3D platformers a’la Super Mario 64… maybe some flying games a’la Pilotwings 64… perhaps a fighting game a’la Super Smash Bros?
Btw, if your tools of choice can’t do 3D or you’re otherwise unable to make one, don’t worry; it’s not mandatory by any means, though of course it is one of the more obvious things to do.
