YAY! Finally finished day one!
For a first time on Ludum Dare we were pretty good(I think) and we had alot fun!
We managed to build our game far ahead than what we expected.
We have some tweaks ideas for tomorrow but generally our game is pretty finished!
I will sleep good now. Good night! (or maybe good morning?)
I’m afraid I have to skip this mini-LD48.
I already lost a day to my dayjob, have no idea for a game, and need the time to complete this:
I am playing super metroid,thinking of some ideas for the game,i thought super metroid would be good for thinking about this kind of thing since this style of game is by adapting to the different planets you are on with different upgrades and tools.
The game’s gonna revolve about score and (barely) real time strategy.
Another screenshot soon.
We are progressing very fast and our game is finally getting his real shape!
Everything works O.K. and the game is pretty stable and playable!
The main idea of the game:
There are many slimes(or maybe microbes/viruses?) at three different colors that are roaming on the screen.
You have to put the blue slimes on the blue area, the red ones on the red area and so on…
While a slime is not on his area he lose some health. If a slime is on the wrong area he lose double health.
When a slime lose all of his health he dies(obviously). When a slime is on his right area he stays there till the end of the game!
+ Add menu screen, help screen etc
+ Add score(high score board?)
+ Add levels
+ Spawn slimes at randomly places, times and amount
+ Add more awesome graphics
+ Think about more cool features!
+ Decide if they are slimes or whatever they are!(Please help us)
I can’t come up with any good ideas for this theme, it’s annoying imo.
So far our game is extremely linear and challenge-less, we’re clueless on what to do right now.
We’re in for this Mini Ludum Dare! (It’s our second!)
If you don’t know us, we made this last time: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/minild-29/?action=preview&uid=6685
Good luck everyone! :>
Hello, this is my first ludum competition and I sadly cannot devote the time I want too it. In the game the player must get through various mazes using things like portals and switches to make their way though. But there is a catch. The maze will change depending on how fast the player reaches certain points of the maze. So if you are really bad, don’t expect to many changes to the maze. If you are good though, the maze will change too make sure everyone takes just about the same amount of time. So I represent Adaptation with the maze adapting toward the skill of the player. I hope I can finish in time.
Hey, my name is Joe Gohn and this is my first Mini LD. My team is working on a puzzle/maze game in Unity where the player must teleport between levels to traverse the maze successfully. The programming was super simple and the teleporting is done so we are working on the level and art assets now. I look forward to seeing what everyone else ends up with.
So, I took way longer to start then usual (6 hours in), but I have a good, simple idea. My artist isn’t joining until tomorrow, so for now I only have programmer art.
I am developing an iPad game using the Corona SDK. The game will be a casual puzzle game. I can’t talk a lot about the mechanics yet, but it should be very easy to implement.
I have some start. Let’s see if it will continue well.
Currently im working on the graphics(Not my strong side XD) and later on the code.
Wish me luck!
Well 2 hours in and i have a basic idea of what its going to look like. Its a bit weird but your kind of like a cell thing that can expand until you hit the wall and can shrink until you reach a size. however if you become to small then you will implode or something like that and if you touch the walls then you die(I have no idea why, thats just how it works). Well seing as im using flash i should probably make it look pretty(I prefer java just it takes so much longer).I think its going ok though.
So this is my first *real* time entering any Ludum Dare competition (I have tried before but gave up 5 mitnues in because I knew nothing), but know after having to learn this for school, I thought now would be a good time to see what I can do.
I’m making an iPhone game, using Lua + the Corona API on the theme of “Adaption”.
My idea if your a giant robot that adapts/steals technology from buildings around you to survive and conquer the city.
This is what it looks like right now after I’m not sure how long spending on it (I think the timelapse has time encoding on so I’ll check later):
I’m quite happy because this is working better then I thought it woul, and is the best written code I have ever typed.
So yeah, this might get released on the App Store later after working on it some more (after the comp) (if I like it that much)
Any comments/ideas are appreciated.
Adaptation is the theme. Good luck!

So, I’ve finally gone and done it. I’ve given up the do-it-all-from-scratch mentality and started learning Unity3d. Wrote a rather lengthy blog on the first 16 days of Unity and iOS, so I won’t go into it all here, if you’re actually interested you can read it there. The end result can be played on the web, though. It’s just an asteroids clone, and 75% of the work applies only to the iPhone version, but I’m still quite pleased. Seemed best to use an established design for my learning project, as an original, unproven, and unpolished design would be a distraction from the goal of learning my new tools and platforms.
Haven’t been on here in a while, had no idea there was a MiniLD this weekend; I may have to enter, not sure yet. Would be a perfect chance to further flex my newly Unity-augmented muscles… but I was planning on relaxing and just working on the design for my next game idea this weekend, taking a couple of days off coding and staring at the computer monitor. Will have to think about it.
Welp, now that I’ve shamelessly plugged my blog and generic game, I’m off to think about dinner options, and possibly play my game on my iphone. I love saying that. My game… on my phone. Only thing that’ll be better is when I get to start saying “my game on your phone.”
If everything goes as planed with mini LD and i am able to finish the game,i may work on it more after mini LD and make it into a full game!But its just some future plans,and i don’t know if that will be the case for shore,but i wont be pessimistic about it
