Now I have the exact equality between votes received and given!

My game Something Deep received 50 votes, and I rated 50 games. It might seem to be not a high number, but together with a vote I always make a video review, like this:

So, all those who commented on my game received a video review. Also (as some of the votes were without any comments), I reviewed games which I found in my Twitter feed.

If I receive more comments within the following 31 hours I’ll do my best to screencast more videos.

For me as a developer participating in LD was a great experience, proving, how much I can do within a limited amount of time.

Also, as I’m a game reviewer at FGL, I want to say that all LD participants are welcome to use free FGL services, like Enhance, which will help you integrate ads into the mobile game without any coding, or Marketplace where you’ll be able to find a publisher for your web or mobile game.

Congratulations on the Programmers’ day!

Today is the 256th day of the year and it is celebrated as the Programmers’ day! Congratulations and best wishes to you, colleagues and friends! Let there be more great ideas and less bugs! More interesting and less routine tasks!

I continue making video reviews to LD entries:

Going to make 10 more reviews today.

We at welcome all indie game developers – we’ll be able to find a sponsor/publisher for your web or mobile game. Also we have a great service called Enhance – you can use it to integrate ads into your mobile game without any coding.

5 more videos (comment my game to get a video of your entry)

Hello, I’m back! I promised to make video reviews every day, but I participated in FGL GameJam (Being an administration member I don’t aim for the prize, just after this Ludum Dare I understood how much fun is it to make a game within a limited time).

So, here are 5 more game videos:

More coming soon!

Most people have commented about how difficult it is to play my game.

For those who have no idea what is it about, I’ve just added a gameplay video of my Ludum Dare 33 compo entry, My Cup of Fury.

Monster of the Matrix: post jam progress

Still having a cold decided to continued working a bit on my Ludum Dare 33 game Monster of the Matrix. In the game you play as a skeleton trapped inside a dungeon crawler. But something is wrong… You realize that you are trapped inside a world that is shutting down. You must escape…! And something is hunting you….!

New version

  • The original Ludum Dare game had one random generated level of fixed size, with one exit. After the jam I split it up into 7 different sized, still randomly generated, levels. It also added a new gameplay element, doors. They made the game much scarier since they limited your sight. And behind every door an agent could lurk…
  • A stamina mechanic was added. You need to rest and can not run the entire time. The agents more a little bit faster than you, so you can not loose them unless you are running from them.
  • More and scarier sounds where added, among them footsteps to the other skeletons and really spooky music from Connor O.R.T. Linning.
  • I also integrated Gamejolts API into the game, giving the player achievements.

Wanted to let everyone know the source code and time-lapse video are available for our game. It’s a jam game but we still wanted to make the source available. I wish more jam games would post source. Sharing is such a big part of this competition.

And now the obligatory plug and animated gif…

Who are you? Why are you here? And what happened?

Turn off the lights, put on your headphones, and enjoy…

Reviewing LD entries

Monday, August 24th, 2015 5:03 pm

After I submitted my entry about a monster in the deep, I had a good sleep, restored my mana bar and finally it’s time to check the other participants’ entries.

Since 2012 I’ve made 1500+ video reviews of indie games either as a community member of Russian-speaking community or as a game reviewer at FGL. That’s why I’ll not just rate the games, but will rather share 3-10 minutes of how a new player (me) would play these games.

Here are the videos for the first 8 games I’ve rated:

– Socks Monster
– Earth Pocalypse
– Area 50
– Delicious cortex
– Banana eater
– Pegakitty saves the world
– Chompy
– Sea monster

I search the games to rate and review:
– among the comments to my entry
– in my twitter feed
– among all the LD entries

View video on youtube

I hope you enjoy it!

PONY! Post Mortem (with pictures!)

LD Compo 33_2015-08-24_02-25-27You don’t want to read the success stories all the time, right? Sometimes you can learn from something that failed more than from what made it, right? So here it is, the little story of PONY! and how it became what it is. For your reading pleasure I included some pictures of concepts of my journey from hating the theme to missing it by a mile. Enjoy!


To JAM or not to JAM?

Posted by (twitter: @PandaDima)

So here’s the deal, I will most likely not be able to complete my game for compo. I bit too much once again. Now I always did compos, never jam. I always like the idea to do everything myself, even though I am not good at art and terrible at music, but I like the practice.

Now back the question, should I take 1 more day and try to finish the game and submit it in jam? I am afraid my game will look poor on the background of all the amazing team based games in Jam. Any opinions?

Not that much more progress done, going to be a stressful day tomorrow. But I hope I will be able to deliver somewhat nice product.

I do everything but core mechanics, I think I’m in for a rush tomorrow

Hey guys,

we have been keeping you updated on new features for our game Of Carrots And Blood, which we started working on at LD31. Now PewDiePie played our game and we wrote a post on our blog about the impact on our emotions, downloads and sales.

Read the blog post here

Hey guys,

although we haven’t been able to participate in Ludum Dare this time we still would like to show you our last game, which would have been quite fitting for this theme…you are a bunny defending a giant carrot and killing mutants with, well, CARROTS! 😀 We have been working on our last LD31 Jam entry “Of Carrots And Blood” and we have released it on for free for Windows and Mac and it is also coming out on Desura soon. We have added powerups, different enemy types, a global highscore for the single player and we have also added a local 2 player Co-op mode (which is the most fun) with a big boss fight surprise in the end! So please check it out :)

And for those of you who already know the Jam version, it would be really cool, if you could compare the two versions and tell us here in the comments, if we applied your feedback for the better or worse 😉 More feedback much appreciated!
