Getting forward. Your task is to beat the boss and free your tiny world. Random enemies spawn and try to stop you. You need to run around and level up to be strong enough.
You can be killed and restart the game. There is fun lurking underneath the programmer art, a few more ingredients and it should be more apparent
I’m not yet convinced but using the different colored slime pools might be an addition to the current gameplay.
Yay, finished, uploaded and submitted my entry.
It’s a rather unoriginal Zelda clone with a few weapons to find. Play with cursor keys, Z/Y to toggle weapons (once acquired) and control to attack. I even managed to cram an end screen in there.
This is my first entry created with VS 2008, so I’m not entirely sure about the required runtimes, since you can’t place the DLLs alongside anymore. If anybody runs into trouble starting it let me know please!
Get the game here: Clicky
I probably can’t invest too much time (again), but I’ll see what I can come up with.
Not particularely impressed by the theme I’ll attempt something completely unoriginal but at least I hope to get some gameplay going. So far I’ve spent my time to build a game framework that allows sorta endless scroll in all directions with tiles as background and objects on top. Plus an editor because I’m an lazy git.
Behold the beauty:
Surfing on lava
Just a few seconds before I died a horrible, unexpected death.
My entry “Universal Conquest” is finished. The game is playable, but probably not everybody’s type. Amass credits to enhance your equipment. Discover new planets, their inhabitants and you better be prepared. Can you find the well hidden alien base and establish first contact?
Download the Windows game from here.
Here’s a preview version, I’d be glad for some feedback. It’s quite playable, there is no win condition for now though. Download from here.
Yay, I’ve got sort of an idea. Probably one that lots of other people have
Reach out to the stars, discover new planets, new material and new ways to reach the farther out stars. Lots of pseudo random involved.
Well, as done as it’s gonna get. The AI probably still has the odd bug, but seems to behave now. The game is not too much fun, but it’s cute creating yet another random island and watch the AI do its thing.
Anyhow, have fun, the file is here
Yes, my AI is actually kinda working
Hurray, if it isn’t stupid it’s quite smart. Basic menu setup also done, and added some sound effects. Now I just need to iron out the last AI bugs and there’s almost a game in there.
It’d be quite nice if during a compo every post had LD #Current automatically tagged on.
Phew, after almost no work at all yesterday (family vacation) I’m now progressing. There might actually be a game in there somewhere. Got a nasty problem yesterday where the compiler wouldn’t let me compare a const std::string& with a string literal. Took almost half an hour to figure out that was not included.
Anyhow, you can move, chop trees, build boats, claim land and the AI can do most of that as well. It’s just not particularely smart about it
Quite a few impressive WIPs to be seen, hope y’all don’t forget the gameplay!
Here be random islands with player placing.
Since I won’t be able to use anything near 48 hours I’ll start something smallish. Randomized islands with some kind of fighting/building. Nothing particularely innovative but still…
I’ll try to get some AI going, a two player only game would be too damn bland.
Also, I fu**ing hate edit system that mess with my line breaks. Cut it out already!
So this is my final entry. Alas I didn’t sleep too well and couldn’t work very much on my entry. Here’s Doom Runner, available from my homepage: http://www.georg-rottensteiner.de/files/Endurion_LD14_DoomRunner.zip
Run for your life (and money) in a deadly game show. Grab prizes and try to reach the goal before the Advancing Wall of Doom crushes you!
There’s only a meager four levels included.
Have fun and Good Luck!
Making steady progress. The game is playable, win and lose conditions are working. Now for more touches and lots of levels.
A preview with one and a half levels can be gotten from here: http://www.georg-rottensteiner.de/webmisc/Endurion_LD14_DoomRunner.zip
It requires DX8 installed.
There might actually be a game in there somewhere. There are walls running up to you and you need to jump about and collect prizes. There’s probably a wall of doom (with spikes and innards and blood and maybe zombie pirate spiders), but it’ll never be visible i fear.
Anyhow, looks like gameplay is once more up to level design mostly. Urgh.
When I first saw the theme I wasn’t sure if I should enter at all. It doesn’t seem to be all that applicable. Anyway, since right now I’m on a Buggy Boy trip i thought about this:
A future gameshow. Run towards a goal without getting stopped by the advancing walls of doom. Grab the cash prizes in between but don’t forget that the next wall is moving towards you.
Here’s a preview with a tiny wall of tiny doom advancing slowly:
Since there have been a few question regarding the “simulation” i’ll explain a bit:
There is no grand simulation inside. It’s all tile based. I refrained from using a physics lib (there have been enough entries with one already) because i’d have to learn it during the compo time.
Every tile has two damage counters, one outer, one inner. The outer is mostly used for the appearance (cracks in the window) while the inner is responsible for the strength left. Once the inner structure value is down to zero the tile collapses.
Collapsing is done by moving all the tiles above one tile down. The tile below the collapsed one gets a damage applied which is calculated by the number and “health” of the tiles above it. This can lead to nice chain reactions of a column collapsing in itself.
Since the collapsing code only works vertically i have the particles. Half of the particles are able to inflict damage when hitting other tiles. Therefore it’s also possible to have columns affect each other.
Oh, and about Twin Towers: You actually have to raze the two towers on the left and right and protect the building in the middle. That’s probably the reason why some can fail spectacularely in that stage.
Did i mention that the game also has flying toilets?
Ok, i couldn’t hold back.
Here’s the final version of Tower Collapse. I’ve added two more stages, fixed some small bugs, enabled window/fullmode switching and added the source to the zip file as well (forgot during the first preview-final).

If you take the time to test please tell me about any bugs! Thanks and have fun!
Edit: 20:27 local time, added a Compo Game Loader file for easier testing! It even works
