Ahoy there, over the last few weeks I put together a Lua engine for making games. It has a dozen functions:
- params_get(k) / params_set(k,v)
I’ll probably use some of the GUI / Tile rendering code that is in those Lua files. It’s pretty simple stuff.
Anyway, that’s my official base code declaration for this upcoming LD! If you end up trying out my engine, do email me or something I’d like to see what you made.
I didn’t exactly intend to make a game when I started this weekend, but hey, I ended up making a 3 player physical card game! You can get it here.
The 3 goats starring in my game are my goats Cuzco, Nibbles, and Lilly. I hope you have fun playing it!
Ahoy there, thanks so much for joining in the 10th Anniversary Ludum Dare! I gotta say, it was an amazing experience to see all 1400+ entries being submitted to the site!
The judging is pretty much the same as always. You judge entries, people judge you.
The big change this year is that now those who judge more entries will get more people judging their entry. I recommend starting judging a few entries now and keep judging them throughout the next three weeks to ensure your entry gets a good handful of ratings. Try to judge AT LEAST 25 entries. Please note that stuffing fake ratings is 100% uncool.
Also, coolness has changed: 50 ratings gets you bronze. 75 gets you silver. 100 gets you gold. Above that, you’re just awesome Be sure to make a post about your favorite entries to highlight the best-of-the-best!
Lastly, if you attempt to play an entry, but can’t, please just leave a comment to the user stating that you can’t judge their entry and explain why. “I don’t have a Mac” or “I can’t install Java” or whatever are all fine reasons. It will help them know how to create an entry that even more people can play next time!
Check it out.
Ahoy there, anonymous gift sender – thanks for the Christmas gift exchange gifts They actually came in a few weeks ago, but I was at GDC, so I forgot to post for a bit!
- Swell Mega-Stein
- German Gaming Magazine
- A festive snack!
Unfortunately the gift I sent was “returned to sender”
Hey, we’re always trying to make Ludum Dare way more fun, so if you’ve got any crazy ideas, post ‘em here!
-Phil & Mike & the rest of the LD Staff
And I managed to get the game in under the line! Huzzah!
It’s a flash game, so you should totally check it out right now!!!!
And whenever you want to judge it, here’s the link.
Anyway, thanks everyone for joining in this Ludum Dare, it’s just plain awesome to see 700+ games get made in a single weekend! I hope you all had a total blast jamming and competing! I know I did I’m totally amazed out by the few screenies I’ve seen so far!
Hey, been working on this game since .. the start! It’s Nobody Wants Kitty about a lonely sad kitty who doesn’t have much going for her. She’s got to upgrade herself until someone will finally want her. You start out as a pathetic cat with rabies, mange, a missing eye, a missing ear, no whiskers, and no fur.
I’m using flashpunk and that’s been working pretty well. Using flash is nice because distribution is so super simple
