Finally, my first game for Ludum Dare: No Escape
And the game entry is here.
I found out that Ludum Dare had started on Saturday, and told myself that I should join in. But, I didn’t act on it. The next day, I wake up with a game idea and the urge to participate. So, I open the Ludum Dare site and found out that they’re in a mess! I am not familiar with the rules of Ludum Dare but, decided to make the game anyway, thinking that I will check on it later when site is back up. After staying up all night, I can finally submit my game “No Escape”.
“No Escape” is a “stomp’em up” game. You play as an angry red eyed giant, stomping on the little guys that tries to escape from your wrath. But, you have to carefully avoid stepping on the little houses, or you’ll trip yourself to death in an epic way XD.
When I started the game, I thought of it as a Tap Dancing game. An idea that crosses my mine: a tap dancer tap-dancing his way to escape from a crazy horse chasing after him XD. But, I’m not so sure how to make a good beat or rhythm from the steps. With less than 24 hours to go, I decided to go for a safer way and make it an obstacle avoidance game. Which then, evolves into a mix of avoidance and stomping game.
That’s all from me. I’ll be glad to hear what you think. Thank you!
