Congrats to all entries!, as always we had an awesome time building a game for Ludum Dare :)

We have added some new stuff to (like a fast way to get your ratings card image as below) and the LD #34.

Here is our card and link to our game if you want to try it


It didn’t went as bad as we thought after comparing it with other Entries we did (

See ya!

Ludum Dare Stats Cards

Hey!, I’ve build up an Stats Card using the API in CodePen because it’s fast and it has some built in embed features.

I thought it would be nice to have a way to embed those stats in your own site fast and easy, so here are two different styles:

CodePen here

CodePen here

To make your own just Fork the code pen and at the javascript change the variables “username” and “ludum” to your own.


From there you can just go to Share > Embed and place it in your site 😉

The code and CSS is there and I tried to create some variables for colors so you can just change that and match it to wherever you are placing it.

Ludum Dare API Stats!

Hey there!, we wanted to see our performance over our participation on ludums to get an idea of what we need to improve at game creation (like mood, graphics, etc) and as I started to create an Excel to see that data, it came up the idea of making directly an api for everyone who wants the same.

Here is the API Site and the API Docs

Here is an example of our user:


So, how it works?
It scrapes the author page looking for LudumDare entries, then scrapes every entry page found on it. To not stress the site, it will scrape ONLY once and cache the results for later fetchs. It also has a setting at the server to set the last ludum number, so every ludum I will go there and change it to make able for new scrapes.

Hope you guys enjoy it!, the source is open at Github under BSD license, so you can check it out , make use of it or whatever you want :) … also any pull request or issue is really appreciated!

I have added more suff like percents for standings, moved calculations into the API so now can use them from your site fast and easy, medals on the grids and total entries are taken from the type of entry (compo or jam).
Thanks for the good vibes, suggestions and bug reports!

Woohoo statistics get hype!

Anssi from MooseflyGames here! You can find our LD29 entry, StromnetZ here. With that out of the way: the results are finally in (well, they have been for hours now)! Of course I had to take the data and see how we did compared to our previous entries. As can be seen from graphs 1 and 2 (check the full post for graphs and more!), our results are once again pretty solid. Even though our game was somewhat lacking in humor and mood I’m really glad we managed to raise the “Overall” and “Fun” ratings from our frustratingly difficult LD28 entry. Didn’t make it into top 100 in any categories, but we still have our humor ranking of 45 in LD27 to look back on on our deathbeds. Yay. Don’t feel like cluttering the whole front page, so be sure to read the full entry by clicking somewhere, beneath this paragraph maybe? (more…)

I LÖVE statistics! + my feelings about the final rating

I’m so happy because of the released ratings that I created a graph in LÖVE about my progresses during my LDs.

love 2014-05-20 05-40-42-515 love 2014-05-20 05-40-38-609

You can download the file here, if you are interested in.

I made a video as well, it shows my absolute first impressions. Check this out! I’m kind of pleased anyway, and even though I expected a little bit more, it was still far my most successfull Ludum Dare event!

I hope everyone else feels the same way.

Statistics about 50 rated entries

Due to several reasons (sh*tty Internet connection, being lazy, being busy, being stressful, not dealing with LD, etc.), I could test only 50 games yet. I can’t imagine, how some people have patience for testing 1000 games…!

As I mentioned, I’m lazy, so don’t expect full reviews for every entries. 😀 instead, I choose the aspect I think the most important (fun, graphics, mood), and I make a descending toplist about the games for each.

There are games (Delayed10 Second Card Game10 Reactions, 10 seconds of fear, Kidnap Commander) that I gave N/A in every mentioned aspects; they can’t be seen on the list below.

All-1s are italic.

I just went through all the “I’m In” posts for the upcoming Ludum Dare written up to this point and collected some data about the preferences of the participants. It’s not very accurate, but it shows the general trends. :)



I hope you all will have a great LD27! Thank you for being awesome!
