Finally made a game called DogPoop

Hi all,

I made a game about a terrible person who has to keep the map clean by scaring away the nice dogs before they poop on the map causing the clouds of green smell.

This was my first jam/compo ever, so i am proud i was able to make something in the 72h. Originally i wanted to do a compo(also first), so i did all the assets by myself, but i was so tired that i rather went to sleep and eventually missed the deadline. I enjoyed the whole process of making a game and also the people here posting the comments with game progress which kept me motivated to finish.

It is 4:30 AM here in Prague so i rather go quickly sleep to get up for my dayjob in the morning 😀

Thanks to you all, see you at the next LD :-)

It started as my trying out some shaders, then found out that Ludum Dare 33 was running. This is the result, finished during a nasty cold.

You are a skeleton in a dungeon. But something is wrong…. Why is the walls breaking down around you? Who are these green skeletons that hunt you?

Play it here.

I have no idea what’s going on [towlie.jpg]

I am curious about this LD thing I’ve been seeing pop up into my Twitter feed over the past few years. Now I have finally made an account. I get that we make a game, but… that’s about it. I figure I’d probably do the “jam” version since it’s my first time. I will most likely be working alone (as always). So… I just start making a game at a certain time and stop at a certain time and then upload it somewhere? Hoping to have fun, once I figure out how this works!

Ultra Hat DimensionIf you haven’t already you can now try Ultra Hat Dimension — the premier hat-based puzzle game — more easily than ever. I’ve updated the latest build to automatically work around two crash-on-startup issues the game had. I’ll explain the problems and the solutions in more detail below if you’re interested in learning from my mistakes.

It went better than I expected!

Hey guys!

This is my first Ludum Dare (and solo game jam), and I can honestly say that it went better than I expected! Even after getting sidetracked a lot, I still finished the game early. That said, I think the weakest part of my game is music. I’ve never been good at it, and a chiptune generator, I think, is the easiest instrument I can use for the moment.

Please view and rate my entry at http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-32/?action=preview&uid=49251

Looking forward to your entries!

MEDIA DUMP, because i got bored of programming and decided I was at a comfortable enough position to start doing art work 😀

Levels are restricted based on how many blocks you have left to solve the puzzle, so a chest full of blocks can help your construction a great deal 😀

TileCraft: an open-source multi-platform 2.5D modeling tool

Thursday, April 16th, 2015 9:13 am

**EDIT** I’ve changed the post time (hope it is not a problem for the admins) because quite a few people downloaded the ALPHA8. I am sorry it was bugged and it could not run at all. I’ve just released a fixed ALPHA9 (tested on all platforms).

Hello guys,

I’ve made a tool based on LGModeler (by AngryOctopus) which was based on a lostgarden.com challenge.

The software is still alpha but it works (I’ve been working hard and fast to make it works for this ludum dare).

Test it and see if it can be a good companion for this Ludum Dare.

The TileCraft github project (star it if you like it!)

A quick guide to use the tool

Download for Windows, Mac and Linux

Happy coding and good luck for LD#32 😉

Not nearly finished, but submitted

First Ludum Dare, not finished, but I didn’t work 24/7 in the game, the little I have worked was good for me to learn particles systems, draw gui and some other thingys. I want to keep working on the prototype to a post-compo version, functional haha.

 

The ideia was, planet exploded, you have to deliver the survivors in a specific planet, OE-314 , but those survivors consume resources that you extract getting near celestial bodies and pressing “space”(not implemented), flying and shooting lasers would consume energy, that could be recharged going near a star. Some random vessels would appear through the space and you could rescue the crew or don’t, and that would give more population, but bonuses onto speed ou hull repair or something bad, like a infected person who would decimate you population. Pirates would too appear, and, if they are close enough of you ship, you would press “space” to fire (aiming would be automatically) and if they shoot you or you bump into something, you engine controls would switch off.(that’s why aiming would be auto, you already have to keep “repairing” your engine in a battle).

 

Variables would be : Hull integrity, population, resources and energy.

Random killer asteroids too.

 

All that before you entire population perish.

 

 

GM Studio and the power of interwebs are the tools used.

Day Two – Our Progress So Far

Posted by
Sunday, December 7th, 2014 3:29 am

So after quite a bit of muddling over the theme, a game idea was settled on. We don’t want to give away what the game’s about just yet — but! Here’s the splash screen:

Dat ampersand.

This has been a pretty interesting Ludum Dare for Rachel — on account this is her first time using Unity, EVER, but she’s been doing a pretty good job so far:

AwYisSpheres

You’re just going to have to use the powers of your imagination and visualize the square moving around triggering text events, ’cause nobody got time for makin’ gifs here.

Message from Rachel: “Development process nearly terminated by vicious spider attack. Narrowly averted, we carry on against adversity.”

AFWL_Blueprint

I guess you could say, this Ludum Dare, we’ve thoroughly … (•_•) / ( •_•)>⌐■-■ / (⌐■_■) blueprinted our game.

Now if anyone wants to watch me create a gazillion pieces of blueprint-style furniture, I’m up on Twitch: http://www.twitch.tv/taunia_sabanski/

Next update soon-ish sort-of.

EDIT: Going to bed now! Thank you for your +<3’s, time and attention.

I’m in

It will be the eight time I compete. I’m going to write a live blog like I always did which can be found here.

This time I’ll be using InCourse® GameCreator again. A webbased game engine developed by Islandworks and dubbed ‘the GameCreator’. It’s a webbased game engine with an easy and no-coding editor. I’ll be using the Ludum Dare promo code for more statistics. I’m excited!

OS of choice: Windows 8.1

Game engine of choice: InCourse 3.5 – the Gamecreator

Graphics: Photoshop or Illustrator

Audio: Audicity & Anvil.

Hardware: Wacom cintiq (Pen tablet), Space Explorer (3d Mouse), M5 mouse, dual monitors etc.

I’ll post a “How did I do it” on the end as I did the last times.

Other year’s entries include but are not limited to: World AloneBe the Villain and The Dragon Journey.

Strong99's Ludumdare 22 entry - World alone Strong99's Mini Ludumdare 49 entry Strong99's Ludumdare 28 entry

Need help porting to Windows!

Monday, August 25th, 2014 4:15 am

I’ve been developing my game, Flipside, on Mac OS X and everything compiles fine. I’ve been trying to compile it to windows however I keep getting compiler errors not due to the code but because I am inexperienced with compiling on Windows. My previous Ludum Dare Entry (28) did compile on windows but that was only a 2D SFML game but this time round, I’ve made a 3D entry.

The game is programmed in C++11. The libraries I used were SFML 2.1, OpenGL, glm, glew.

If someone could compile this to work with windows, I would be so grateful as I am having some problems compiling on Windows (dll hell). 

 

 

I’m getting ready for the Ludum Dare 30!

Friday, August 15th, 2014 7:42 am

This will be my 2nd Ludum Dare (the last being LD 28).

This time, I’ll be using similar tools but I’m not sure if the game will be 2d or 3d until the theme is announced. The tools I will use:

  • Platforms: Mac, Windows, and (maybe) Linux
  • Language: C++
  • Libraries: SFML, OpenL, (& if 3d, glm)
  • Editor: Sublime Text 3 (with a lot of plugins)
  • Graphics: Photoshop
  • Sound: Garageband, SFXR
  • Writing Instruments: Pen, Pencil, and Paper
