Introducing Conga Master

Hi all!

We’ve been working hard on our game Conga Master for the Ludum Dare 34 jam so we didn’t have time to post anything. But here it is!

Conga Master

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-34/?action=preview&uid=66146

This is our game. All graphics and programming were made during the Ludum Dare, and much more! Because we did several prototypes trying different controls. Moving your feet with two buttons, one for each leg, choosing your direction using an oscillating arrow and a button to run, etc. We took our time but we believe the end result feels super nice. What do you think?

We wanted to add different kinds of people affecting the gameplay. Say you got lots of geeks in your conga, then cool people would hesitate longer before joining. Eventually we decided on the pig idea which everybody seems to like :).

Please play the game and tell us what you think! We can’t stop playing to listen once and again to the music while dancing all around!

UNBALANCED KARMA is a Interactive Storytelling Game which has as a main character a Young Gipsy Woman that was born and raised in Brazil, under the Colonial ruling of Portugal, in the 19th century, a little bit before the country becomes independent. She is strong, independent, a fortune teller and part of the romani traditions and culture. Many historical arquetypes are present in the game (the tax collector, the merchant, the wealthy noble man, the black man and woman) and it has a deep relation to the African-american religions, specially the Candomble, which is a brazilian interpretation of the Yoruba beliefs in the Orishas.

The game relates to the theme of Growing – as the character takes actions and uses her skills to foretell the future, so she makes choices that make her Karma grow, and has to deal with the consequences of it.

It has a profund meaning related to inner growing and self-awareness. Also, it presents many aspects and assets of the brazilian culture, history, society and manners. This is due the fact that the team intended to put elements of edutainment in its conception and development.

Along with the Game, we have produced also a Transmedia Project, called UnBalanced Project – which also has (and shall be developed soon) a Board Game, a Card Game, an Infographic and an E-Book with the continuation of the Game’s Narrative.

Ian Archer – Two Button Contorls

I’m thinking because I hardly have that much time left, a quick and simple game that most gamers would be able to play is the way to go.

Plus, I could always improve on quality and features of the game on later dates.

Let’s do this, I’m pumped!

BTW, anyone else that’s created a persona character type for ludumdare challenges? just curious :) happy game dev

Testing features

Posted by
Saturday, December 12th, 2015 12:42 pm

Here’s a test level that we use to test the new features we keep adding ! We choose the “Two buttons controls” theme. You can use left click to move in one direction (the direction can be changed using the purple blocks), and you can activate things using right click (not seen in the following video). You can jump when you walk on the yellow blocks. The game is about resolving some puzzles based on thoses systems and some others that will be added in the future. There’s also a little story but Im not going to spoil you 😉

Everyone’s doing great! 😐 i totally cant comment great!! keep up with good work on so many posts so i’ll keep liking things 😉
hmmm..the art is as simple  as i estimated it to be and i’m more or less satisfied by code so far … it’s been a very long time since last i participated in a game jam and this is the first jam(and my first LD )  i’m actually enjoying myself!! Really fun so far …

The game’s a supeeer siiiimple shooter : u’re the shooter guy(well this red square’s got some kinda lucky Luke like hair…) and u can aim to shoot (LM=shoot,RM=Change Bullet Color) and that’s it ! 😀 i had other more creative ideas but i really felt like making a shooter … so i did this 😆

And i didnt use any animations or particles here ( no sprites no key frames no built-in particle systems:D ) i did every thing and every exploding effect or animation by coding it and this was fun 😀  from now on i will go on polishing the art a bit …  :/

Monster of the Matrix: post jam progress

Posted by (twitter: @@jespertingvall)
Saturday, August 29th, 2015 5:13 pm

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.

Old version of game

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.

http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-33/?action=preview&uid=55647

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 :-)

Monster of the Matrix finished

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 Dimension crash-on-startup issues resolved

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 😀

 

CACTUS DECOR 😛

…and his pickle spear….

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 😀

A western themed game needs a tumbleweed. So here’s a tumbleweed

OMAHGAHD, IT’S THE SPIKY SPEARY!!! The somehow infinitely replicating weapon of our heroine

DEFINITELY not last, our heroine! It’s CACTUS CHYPS!

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

Posted by
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 😉
