Ludum Dare 27
Awriiiight, I’m in!
You may remember me from such crappy games as Vampire The Buffet Slayer - http://buffetslayer.co.uk/
This time I’m switching away from Flash, instead I’ll be using Haxe/OpenFL . In the name of full disclosure, I’m using a really simple bit of boilerplate that does the boring stuff I always spend time doing at the start of jams: github.com/danhett/jamkit
I’m also running the Manchester Game Jam, so far we have thirty-odd people signed up. Room for more if anyone wants to join us!
Good luck, y’all.
Our game is about a fat vampire who takes ten second-helpings at a buffet. We named it…
We’re making a game about taking ten second helpings of food. Oh, and you’re a vampire.
Ladies and gentlemen, we humbly present: Vampire The Buffet Slayer.
So logically I had to make a point-and-click where you play as one, and destroy your owner’s house.
Framework is all done, you can move him around and visit all the rooms in the house. Now to start putting the puzzles in. I think I’m going to set a time limit, so you have to trash the house as much as possible before your owner gets back.
Manchester, checking in!
We’re having a proper all-night session for the Ludum Dare, at the very awesome Madlab in Manchester, UK.
The event is SOLD OUT, but there’s a waiting list for tickets in case anyone can’t make it. Go here to get on the list and we’ll let people know if any come up. If this event turns out well (and we think it will!), we’ll do this for every LD48 in the future. We have all sorts of fun stuff happening (pervasive gaming specialists, board game people, and some short crazy jams for people who can’t do the whole weekend) so it should be a whole bunch of fun. We’ll also be livestreaming if we can. We even persuaded Red Bull to send us a massive stack of energy drinks, yay!
Good luck everyone, can’t wait to jam.
