This marked my second Ludum Dare. Last time I had the whole 48 hours and I made a game called Chamber of Remorse, which in my opinion had loads of content and looked gorgeous for being made in only 48 hours.
BUT, this time I was moving on the same weekend as LD, so I was limited on time. I livestreamed the whole thing and according to the VOD’s I used only about 12 out of the 48 given hours, and came up with the following game…
I think the thing I’m most proud of from this game is my AI programming. This is because one of the biggest, if not the biggest problems of my previous LD game was that the AI was horrible.
This time around I made the AI great, and I think I’ve worked out any bugs that they had.
Also, another thing I found quite nice about this game is that I made the random generation of the island pretty flawless. At least, there’s no flaws that I can see
But more importantly… Happy 10th anniversary, and congrats to over 1000 games!
This will mark my second Ludum Dare to date, last time I used GameMaker. Though in the past couple weeks I’ve been trying to learn C#, but I doubt I’ll use that… Mainly because I’ll be moving on the weekend of the 21st. So now I need to figure out how to code and move at the same time.
Considering what I said above, I wont have a lot of time to work on a game so I’ll probably use GameMaker again since I’m so familiar with it that I can whip up a really nice game in no time, but next Ludum Dare I’ll be using C# for sure.
In short -
Game Maker 8.0
XSplit (for livestreaming!)
I’ll be streaming at twitch.tv/xblinkedx
So happy 10 year anniversary to Ludum Dare,
and lets try to get 1000 games this time!
