Hello all!

Ludum Dare has taught me so much as a developer, and has inspired a great deal of my work. Today, I released my first game on Steam–Skyway. If you have a few minutes, please check it out!

As an homage to my short LD games, I’ve placed a few Easter Eggs around the levels :)

Finding partners to work with

Posted by
Sunday, November 27th, 2016 8:54 am

Hey dudes and dudedinas!

I would like to know, where you find your partners to work with? Is there a special place or website, which is only dedicated for teaming up with people? It looks like a lot of people are searching for partners to join the jam, instead of living the life of a lone wolf. And if there isn’t any place, how about creating one? Like an extra steam group only for this purpose to keep the main group clean? I imagine one with multiple sub-forums like “Looking for a team” and “Team looking for more”. Or would it be possible to add this sub-forums to the main group?
These are just thoughts and ideas and I dont want to mess anything up.

So, how do you think about this thoughts, especially PoV? Or are you even planning such a feature for the new website?

 

Greetings,

“ArsonVille” My LD36 entry, Releasing on Steam on Nov 25!

The Last Ludum Dare was a strange and exhilarating experience.

It was the first time I really focused on a quirky game that I wanted to play, without the pressure or hassle of having to deal with voting and community reviews. While I did miss the voting, the result was a different kind of game, and I even managed to finish early.

The resulting game is now called “ArsonVille”, and is launching on Steam on November 25! Add it to your wishlist, it’ll be approximately USD $4 around the world, and what a great way to support your fellow community by supporting one trying to release and go commercial :)

bannerI’ve taken the time since LD to improve the game graphics, finalise steam integration and work on sounds and general cleanup.

For comparison, here’s the game after completing LD36:

And here’s what it looks like now:

Again, thanks everyone here for your amazing feedback, support for the last few years, and encouragement to reach this life goal of mine. This is a win for me, but also for the LD community! Make games!

Try to keep your steam locomotive as fast as possible, as long as possible !

This is our first Ludum Dare ever, we’re pretty happy of the result of our work, even if we’re quite tired and even if the last hours have been harsh !

Anyway, we hope you’ll enjoy this little Arcade/Puzzle (?) game. We wanted to make some adjustement, like a menu, or a more balanced gameplay but time and tiredness got us before !

Check this out !

Game made in 72 hours by a Team of 5 people.

From Ludum Dare 31 to Steam Greenlight

Friday, October 16th, 2015 2:23 am

Hello fellow devs,

We haven’t been on Ludum Dare page for a while and we wanted to share our project with you that we’ve been working on since Ludum Dare 31.

We went from this prototype (Old Bounce’):

Bounce ’em Up – Old

To this:

Bounce ’em Up – New

 

Our game Bounce ’em Up is now on Steam Greenlight. We have a bit in-depth post on our Greenlight page that you can check out here: From LD31 to Greenlight – Bounce ’em Up
It has been quite a journey for us. In between these events we participated in Imagine Cup 2015 Games Competition were we came out as 2nd place winners!

This community and Ludum Dare game jam helped us get where we are today, and we’re still moving forward. We hope to inspire the developers here to do the same and keep working on their projects. If you’d like to know more, get in touch with us.

Cheers!

Hey guys!

Didn’t get to market quite as quick as Titan Souls did, lol, but I had to go hunt down a team after Rude Bear Resurrection and get funding. But we’re finally confirmed for Xbox One/Playstation 4/PS Vita, but aren’t quite on Steam yet! Gotta get through greenlight.

I will love you forever if you give a fellow serial jammer a chance to be on Steam:

Rather different than the original:

Camera Obscura Release!

Many moons ago, I was on here plugging our game Camera Obscura, which was on Steam Greenlight at the time.  Well, we made it through, and we’re releasing the game on Steam on February 19th!  This is the first game I’ve worked on to be published on a major platform, so I’m pretty excited.  You should visit our Steam page, check out our new trailer, and see how far we’ve come.

If you missed my first post, Camera Obscura is a sidescrolling puzzle-platformer with a unique mechanic that allows you to take a picture of the geometry around you, then move it with you for a few seconds.  You can use it to bridge wide gaps, create staircases up cliffs, and solve other, more intricate, puzzles.  It takes place in a mysterious tower in a forgotten land, and features amn

This site has been a huge part of my personal journey to this point.  I also wanted to thank you so much for your support on Greenlight!  I don’t doubt that the members of this site helped the game get approved.

Thank you again!

0RBITALIS: From LD48 to Steam in 100 days

Posted by (twitter: @AlanZucconi)
Thursday, April 17th, 2014 7:57 am

Last December I took part in the 28th Ludum Dare. I tried to get the most out of its theme (the incredibly vague “You Only Get One“) and the result was 0RBITALIS. A minimalistic gravity simulator with a puzzle flavour. The game was both the most voted and commented entry in the contest and in the end… … …it didn’t win! I do not deny that I have been quite disappointed, initially. But after reading all the positive comments from the Ludum Dare community, I decided to keep working on the game. One hundred days after, 0RBITALIS has been released on Steam. How did I do that? Weeell…

comp_01 comp_02

December

  • 15th-16th: 0RBITALIS is born!
  • 16th: available on Newgrounds

January

  • 7th: available on itch.io
  • 13rd: available on IndieGameStand
  • 27th: first contact with Mastertronic
  • 30th: nominated for the Newgrounds Award 2013

March

  • 12th: showcased at BAFTA Inside Games Arcade
  • 17th-21st: showcased at GDC 2014 in the ALT.CTRL.GDC section
  • 28th-30th: showcased at EGX Rezzed in the Leaft Field Collection
  • 27th March: Doseone joins the project

April

I want to see this not as an happy ending, but rather as an happy beginning for 0RBITALIS. I am looking forward to see how feedback from its community will shape it for the final release. And if there is a message behind my story, is surely not to give up. There are thousands of people out there who love your game: they just don’t know it yet… :-)

SuperHot Steam greenlight

Posted by (twitter: @powderblock)
Friday, September 13th, 2013 10:12 pm

SuperHot is a game that was made for the 7DFPS competition. This is one of the games which has gone above and beyond to be on Steam Greenlight. If you would take a second, and if have a Steam account, it would be a mean alot to this guy if you would push for his game.

It is always really cool to see Indies make it to something more “traditional” such as Greenlight. Some pretty big gamers are pushing this one. Including Dan Hardcastle (Nerd^3). So, he might have a chance of approval!
You can Steam Greenlight it here:
http://t.co/HB2l3DeRMu

Or, if you want to try it before you approve it by all means go ahead:
http://superhotgame.com/
(Unity Web build.)

Getting games like this only further validates things like Ludum Dare. We should really push for things like this when they come up. Anyway, sorry for the mini-rant. Vote it up!

Camera Obscura – my game on Steam Greenlight

Posted by (twitter: @BrianAMacIntosh)

Hello fellow game developers,

I wanted to make a plug for a game I’ve just submitted to Steam Greenlight.  The game is called Camera Obscura, and it’s being developed by a small group of college students from UC Irvine.  We started it in a game jam almost two years ago, and we liked the idea so much that we’ve continued to develop it into a full-length game.

Camera Obscura is a puzzle-platformer that revolves around a unique mechanic that allows the player to activate a camera flash so bright that it creates “afterimages” of all visible platforms.  These platforms are solid enough to walk on, and they can be moved around for a short time, mimicking the player’s movements.  This ability allows players to cross wide chasms, reach high platforms, and otherwise alter the shape of the environment to accomplish the ultimate goal – reaching the top of the mysterious Tower.  You can see some gameplay footage here to get a better idea.

The Greenlight page is right here.  We’d really love your support and your feedback!

The game also has a full, custom soundtrack by the amazing Trenton Ng, and we’ve shared a few of the tracks here:

Thanks for your time,
Brian MacIntosh
