    Mini-LD #26 – My Idea and My Interpretation of the Theme

    I’ve got my game idea for the Mini-LD.

    I’m interpreting the theme as follows:

    1. Getting it done is the most important thing
    2. The actual “theme” is less important
    3. It’s a Mini-LD, so the rules can be bent
    4. Therefore: It’s more important to get the thing done, so the actual “theme” can be neglected and it’s not too much of a big deal

    That being said, my idea has very little if anything to do with the potential themes. I really love the idea, though, and want to make it happen.

    The premise has a wide scope, though, and I’ll only be able to get a subset of it working during the Mini-LD. That’ll be a good push for me, though.

    The game is about a fox that has to get eight elemental crystals (Fire, earth, water, air, and four others I’ll figure out) into their respective altar-type places to get the Forces of Nature back into balance before the World is Destroyed. The Mini-LD version will have the first crystal and a “To be continued…” at the end.

    The game will be a Metroidvania where the player collects various skills. The Mini-LD version will have at least two of them.

    Looking forward to this,

    — Mr. Dude
