Ludum Dare finished last monday and I made it! I finished a solid game in 48 hours with pretty graphics. It has been a very exciting week with lots of positive feedback. You can play the game here:
It's only a few more weeks until the next Ludum Dare starts. It will be held in the weekend from 4 to 6 december! As always, I'm going to keep an up to date blog about my progress. Read more about the Dare there.
During this seventh Ludum Dare competition our theme was Connected Worlds. I started around 05:30 CEST on Saturday and submitted it around 03:00 on Monday. I worked thirty-six hours on the game, slept ten hours (2 + 8), used three hours for writing down a concept, drew sixteen hours, used around eight hours for creating the game’s logic and six hours for music. The other time was used for play testing, blogging, eating and quick breaks.
My approach and idea against copycats. I wrote the blogpost for the Ludum Dare community since their 48 hour games get ripped and sold by others, copycats. It's an issue you see to with movies, games and books. Everything is copyable and sellable by someone else. But what to do against it? Read my thoughts on the Ludum Dare blog.
On the 26th of April I competed again in a Ludumdare competition - a competition on which you're supposed to build a game from scratch in just 48 hours! - the theme was Beneath the Surface. View the game and my personal LD29 blog here.
On tuesday the Ludumdare Judging closed and the results got published. My results can be found here. My results aren't great this time. But differently than the previous dares I tried out the Islandworks GameCreator which also bound me to use 2d art instead my trusty favorite 3d art. Added that I couldn't think up a good idea and got stuck most of the first day I think the results are okay for the game I created.
Next weekend is the Ludumdare 28 game contest. A competition in which you on your own have to build a game from scratch in less than 48 hours. It will be the third year I'm going to compete. This time I've put this web log online to share my progress with you. I'll be sharing as much updates as possible on this blog. So keep tuned in or subscribe to the RSS feed!
