Tiny Haunt submitted to IndieCade 2014

Well, after some tuning and graphics updates, I decided to submit Tiny Haunt, my LD29 entry, to IndieCade.  While the LD feedback was vastly positive, there was one common complaint: the game wasn’t hard enough.  I intended the game to be fairly sandboxy, and to that end, fairly easy if you choose.  However, I ran out of time to implement the mechanics that made it more than that.  In the IndieCade build each of the four levels has its own optional challenge, which might be defeating enemies within a certain amount of time, or using only one ability.  I’m happy with the progress I’ve made so far, but there is still so much to do!  A big part of the future experience will be enhanced interactions with enemies and more objects put at your disposal.  On top of that I have plans to add an exploration element that allows you to uncover the long lost secrets of your castle.  Exciting times ahead!

Here’s a preview of the IndieCade build.  If you’re interested in the game, don’t hesitate to follow me on Twitter (@rojomojogogo), or add Tiny Haunt to your watch list on IndieDB.

Well, I’ve finally rated 100 games from this round of Ludum Dare.  There have been some really great entries!  I thought I’d make a short list of some gems that may still lay beneath the surface for a lot of people.  Here they are in no particular order.  All screenshots are from the respective game’s entry page.

Well there you have it.  You can of course play my own entry Tiny Haunt here as well, if you so choose.  It would be greatly appreciated.  I’m still planning on rating more games, so if you have one that you want me to play, feel free to tweet it to me (@rojomojogogo), or leave the link to your game in the comments.

It seems like a lot of people like the music in my LD29 entry, so I thought I’d upload it to Soundcloud and share it.

You can also play the game here!

Whew!  My entry for LD29 is up as of a couple hours ago.  It’s a sandboxy physics game where you play as a poltergeist defending your castle from invading knights.

Go play it!

If you leave a comment of any kind it’s very likely that I’ll end up playing your game sometime in the next week, so keep that in mind!  I’m sure that goes for a lot of the other developers as well.

I may do a postmortem later in the week.  For now it’s time to chill out with some whiskey and play some games!
