OneEarth

 

This was my first Ludum Dare, and my first finished game as well.  I’ve been wracking my brain on several game projects from video to board to card formats.  LD really helped me focus my energies intensely on one project and deadlines work on me so the 48hr limit really helped.

Several of my friends and I worked in the same room which definitely was a boon, and inspired longer hours of work than I’m used to.  Doing the Explosion animations in the game was the best part for me.  I learned a ton of GML in the process (thank you lord google) and can’t wait until next LD!

My game One Earth is about a world in which global warming has become so catastrophic that the only way to save the planet is to immediately revert to primitive times, by destroying all the power plant/ factory rigs.  On this totally watered world you sail in a muscle powered galley to shoot down all the factories.  Coal rigs produce a lot of pollution but have short range artillery.  Nuclear rigs produce little pollution but have massive range.  You only have 1 hp so the levels can be a challenge, but I didn’t want it to be easy.  Hope you enjoy the game and I would love any critique you have to share after playing!

Save The Hut

Save The Hut was my very first entry into the world of ‘make a game in a low amount of hours’ compos. It was all about The Hut, and how to Save it from the hut-hungry alien invaders. The player had to make sure The Hut survived for a certain amount of time. To achieve this, stuff could be built, but there was a limit set by the amount of credits available. It played as a mix of RTS and puzzle.

Featuring 10 levels, 8 bit palette graphics awesomeness, developed for DOS using Allegro and DJGPP, it placed about 14th. Its shortcomings seemed to be that people had trouble figuring it out, had real trouble passing level 3 (The Holy Cactuses, which was pretty hard), had trouble running DOS games, and also found ‘hold out for X seconds’ extremely annoying (because it sucks to fail at ‘2 seconds left’ and have to replay the level).

You can download a newer, slightly improved version (for Windows) of Save The Hut as a .zip archive, or as an installer. Or, you could get the old compo version (for DOS).
