With this topic, “You are the monster”, I had 3 different ideas & designs:

  1. Swamp thing
    1. B&W art
    2. Swamp scenary
    3. Mechanics: hide & seek, destroy enemies (bad fellas from swamp) ,protect good people, use healing power, and so on, even grow mushrooms and collect green gas from them
  2. Spider game:
    1. Steampunk art with a lot of fire and storms, tornados, yeah!
    2. Desert and volcano scene, i missed the arabic buildings, but,wtf i had no time for that
    3. Mechanics: alien spiders –> lavalantulas! LavalantulaToo much power ..ok, but it could be some, more powerful, and innocent, how about a robot said my brain –> yeah, steampunk rocket-robot with rockets,there you have!steampunk robot
  3. Scorpion game: the same with the spiders in (2) but with a scorpion and venom in stead of the robot

Other Crazy ideas : the sun as your enemy, fireballs from the sky, oasis, mirror images, sand warriors,…omg, so much imagination

Ah, the Politician as the monster with tentacles, robbing and killing people…

Anyway, stay cool ,play the game.

We did it!

We are really happy to have made it, finally. It was a long weekend. Later, we are going to make a proper post-mortem post. Right now, resting and social life is important.
You can play and rate our game, “Robot Uprising!” here: http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-32/?action=preview&uid=10942

Pre-LD31 Post

Gearing up for Ludum Dare this weekend.

All going well, it will be my first LD since 2012 (I attempted one last December but didnt finish anything worth submitting)

 

I’ll be using Unity this time round, since its a much more popular/trusted game engine for posting games online with (rather than the Blender Game Engine – which Ive used for most past LDs). Im feeling like making something space-ish (like usual), or perhaps something a bit out there, like a ‘fake’ isometric in a 3D game setting.  Chaos, Deep Space, Isolation and ‘You Are Not Supposed To Be Here’ are all themes that got my vote in the final round. Any of those would be great!

 

Software for this round:

GameEngine: Unity [C#]

Programming: Sublime Text 2

3D/Animation/Modelling/Rigging/Texturing: Blender

2D: GIMP

Sound: Audacity

Music: ?? (probably going to opt-out)

 

Also heres a quick turntable of a robot box-thing I worked on in the week leading up to now, in order to get more used to the workflow between Blender and Unity (especially when it comes to importing animated objects).

The legs fold up into the box itself, in a rough animation thats not quite good enough to show off yet (this wont be used at all for the LD ofc, its just something LD-related I whipped up to get back into the swing of things)

cube bot (not deployed)

See you guys at the starting line! (Aka what I like to call 0-hour)

SINGLEHANDEDLY – the remake.

I hate it when this happens. You create this universe. You come up with these characters. You twist this game mechanic and run with it. You end up falling in love.
And you swear up and down that it’s time to move on, you’ll do something new, something exciting and “innovative.” Something that’s different for the sake of being different in some futile attempt to break some hypothetical mold.
And it never happens. Because you’re in love.

Yep, I’m remaking an old contest entry.
All melodrama aside, this is going to be awesome. So awesome, you may want to take a knee.

Oh, wait, it looks like our little blue protagonist already has. Because he can duck now.

Also, I figured out how purple works.

This time around, you’ll be immersed in the universe in the way I had it visualized from the start. You’ll follow a storyline and get to know the characters just as well as I did. You will be tested and you will be challenged and you will like it and you will fall in love.
Oh, and you get a cookie if you remember this guy:

You won’t remember this guy, though:

These vids are old! It’s coming along like crazy. I hope I impress at least one of you guys, because this is going to be the biggest, most elaborate game I’ve ever made.

Mustache Armies – Artworks.

Hi, my nickname is Sephy.
I’m a French 2D designer – you can see my work on my website.

I joined the TurboDindon team for the 26th Ludum Dare. It was a very great experience, I love my teammates.

We finished our game ‘MUSTACHE ARMIES‘.

Feel free to play, share and rate for us!

(My personal record is finish the map using 10 unities)

You can discover below a few graphic researches, artworks and assets I’ve designed. My mate Raz did other graphics as main unities, backgrounds and logo. Graphics have been inspired by minimalist paintings and shapes. Not everything has been implemented.

AVOIDAL - Use Your Enemies

AVOIDAL (my August 2010 Ludum Dare entry) and October Challenge entry has found a home!

I’m excited to report I finalized on a primary sponsorship deal with Tom Fulp of Newgrounds last week and have finished all the integration and testing work required. That work included getting to create 23 fun medals (achievements) for players to win when the game is played over on the Newgrounds site with a player account. The game will launch over there next week on November 3rd. I’ve also managed to sell a few non-exclusive licenses including one to Big Fish Games. The primary sponsorship was found via posting to Flash Game License. I spent a good bit of time in October working on, play testing, and polishing the original competition version into the final version.

The highscores have been reset so get in there and play!

Robot Sandbox

Posted by (twitter: @Stoney_FD)

I haven’t found a fitting name yet, so for the moment it’s called Robot Sandbox/Playground something. The basic idea: You have a few robots and you can control one at a time and there is a lot of stuff lying around to play with. For example: One robot can grab a box, move this box around and put it on a tile with water, consequently other robots can walk on this tile.

Furthermore, those robots can’t work forever, so they need to recharge and that’s why there are batteries.

That’s what I’ve done so far:

Yeah, the robots are missing at the moment.

I’m not sure if I’m gonna finish in time. I have three exams next week and I really need to study.

Ninja Kitty Vs. The Nukebots (final)

Posted by
Sunday, October 5th, 2008 7:45 pm

It’s done! It took longer than the alloted time by quite a bit, not to mention I massively cheated (about half the final code is from existing work, not new). But it’s fun, in a weird and weird, weird way. It’s a goofy game. But it’s got skills and leveling up, so that makes it good. it’s also very hard with most of the maps I found, but they all seem winnable if you got ninja skillz.

Enjoy Ninja Kitty’s neverending battle against the horrid Nukebots.

Everything but the gameplay

I’ve randomly titled my entry PaintWorld! So far everything but the gameplay works.

The level selection screen, my first-ever real GUI!

Gameplay at the moment – nothing really.

The winnerdom screen is to remain a secret!

And you may or may not be playing as a robot/kitty/both.

Ninja Kitty Vs. The Nukebots

Here’s a screen! You can’t actually get hurt yet, but I can tell it’s nearly impossible so far. Kitty is a ninja in the shinobi style – that means he can teleport dash through the air freely. And he clings to walls and ceilings and throws stars. The only controls are left mouse to dash to cursor, and right mouse to throw stars.

Nukebots, of course, contain nuclear explosives inside. So killing one will cause an explosion that will hopefully help you, but might kill you too. And all those yellow blips are the absurd amount of firepower the robots currently have. They also have way too much life, or you do way too little damage. The color of the Nukebot tells you its abilities. The less green it has, the faster it moves, the less red, the more life, the less blue, the faster it shoots (I know less is weird, but there’s logic to it, I think).

This design supports absolutely any colors you want, not just the official ones! Of course, black=walls, white=space, and FF00FF=player start. But other than that, it’s all robots. And those big colorful blocks make for an awful lot of robots.

LD 10.5 – Kittay

Howdy!

Here is my entry. It’s basically a cross between robotfindskitten and a generic platformer.

DOWNLOAD: http://kittay.ca/kittay-fydo-LD105.zip (1.0 mb)

Written in C, uses OpenGL. Didn’t have time to make a linux binary, sorry team.

I’m planning on doing a post-compo version, with bugfixes and better level graphics. Also, I’ll incorporate the other 3 mini-songs that I recorded, too. 😉

Enjoy!

EDIT: Note that I’ve created a launchpad project for kittay. So you can file bugs there! Yay!
