Final game looks like this:

It is an asymmetrical 2 player (one with a mouse and keyboard, the other with an Xbox 360 gamepad) 3D fire sim toy thing. You only get one match’s life (if you’re player 1). Water and fire interact in the usual way. Strike the match on the rough rock to start. Points are awarded for tree/ house voxels burnt to the ground. There’s no sound.

This was my second ever game jam and I learned lots from this project – obviously fire simulation, but also the particulars of Unity’s particle systems and I’m sure lots of other things I can’t remember now.

Obvious bugs include the match floating up at certain times, due to unity’s physics collider. The match probably shouldn’t float on the water either…

I started lots of things that didn’t go into the final game – independent voxel fire grids that could interact, procedural generation of terrain. I guess the maths was a bit too difficult after nearly 28 hours of programming for my brain! I really shouldn’t have eaten so much sugar. Maybe next game jam I’ll remember!

First every Ludum Dare, decided to make a 3D fire sim – spent a while researching after a lot of lying in, but been working for a few solid hours. Hopefully will get some “you only get one”-match-to-burn-everything-with gameplay going on tomorrow. Some screenshots – currently everything burns, including underwater stuff, and it doesn’t yet leave a black trail where it’s burnt. Pretty happy so far though!

The story so far…

Today, after incitement by a CHAIN letter, a horde of villagers, armed with CHAINs, CHAIN guns, and CHAINsaws, attacked a shopping district in Washington DC, having crossed the CHAIN bridge. There our hero, a CHAIN smoker, sat nursing his drink at a coffee CHAIN. Killing the first villager to disturb his drinking, he took up the dead man’s CHAIN and proceed to battle the forces of evil. Little did he know that the same evil mastermind that sent the CHAIN letter also equipped his pawns with chemical tanks that would set off a CHAIN reaction when combined.
