Ludum Dare 23
I didn’t get up too long ago… Just making a start. My last Ludum Dare I made a game called Motherboard City, and you played as Chip. I came up with the character Crisp, Chips British evil twin. You see what I did there?! =D Anyway, here’s some food to keep me going.
I think I’m doing well, time wise… I think… Just adding the little details and background items. I still have a few more things to draw. Then I’m going to figure out how to make an animation for the ending and I hopefully should have at least one hour to figure out about music/other audio.
I just updated the game, first one to have actual playable levels =] 9hr 40m left. I’ll be sad when its over, but it’s going to feel nice =]
The idea of the game is to escape Motherboard City. You play as Chip, just a little dude jumping his way out of a dangerous city. You travel around the four corners of the motherboard to reach the open PCI backplate, Chip is dying to reach the outside world.
I gave up with the game tonight. I don’t have too much to do tomorrow so I should be able to get it done in time =] You can get the full sized version from my Flickr.
I’ve finished the main parts of lvl 1,2, and 4. I still need to draw a few things for lvl 3. Then I need to move on to backgrounds and audio and then do an ending animation.
