I’ve finally found an idea for this theme that I am inspired to make a fun game with: Convoys!
My original idea was to race with a convoy of crazy cars and trucks and try and get as many of your convoy as possible across the line. I quickly changed to UFOs becuase it doesn’t matter what way they are facing. This means I don’t have to muck around with a bunch of sprites and try and get changing directions to look natural. Also, UFO races sound fun.
Here is my first screenshot:
This is my second Ludum Dare and I am using Game Maker. Good luck everyone!
