Reindeers On Strike

So I was late to the party and only decided to start on my Ludum Dare game on Sunday evening, I had been busy all weekend. I knew I didn’t have much time so I went for the Jam even though I was by myself and would’ve qualified for the Compo. Because of the time constraints my game has loads of bugs and aspects which I have clearly cut corners. But despite this I am happy with the outcome. I have managed to get a small buggy game working.

I chose to make a 2D shooter because I have done it before and it would save time. Christmas is just around the corner so it was a favourite in terms of game ideas, and who doesn’t love a violent santa?

The game itself has got pretty good overall reviews and considering the time put in to it I am very happy with the result. The game functions which is a miracle in itself. On top of that with (good) music, (good) art it really looks like a game.

I am quite proud of it and to answer the question, yes it is possible to make a game in 8 hours. Whether or not it is good, thats for you to decide.

The first time I entered “Ludum Dare” I had an accident the next day, a car broke my leg bones into many pieces, I was injured more than a year because of that.
During my time in the hospital I was making games with the iPad and a notebook, then I realised that Internet and games were too good for me to keep me away from the pain of my leg.
This year, I had not any intention of doing the october challenge, but one day my fathers came to my place to visit and have dinner, my father told me that one of his patients, a cancer child would like to have a game of reindeers, which it actually let you to name ,train and send it to give presents to all the children in the world…so, I decided to make his game, for free, not even 1$, where you can do all those things magically and where you also can leave a message of effort, peace or love to all those children who are living a life surrounded by that darkness-illness.
Here it is the video:

And the entry for the game

In stead of monetize the game I have created a donate button here
