Archive for the ‘MiniLD #01’ Category
I know this post is very belated, but I didn’t realize such a post was needed until I saw the list of headlines, and it looked like the contest was still going on for all eternity.
We only had what appears to be 7 entries, and a very high incidence of unfinishedness among those. But whatever, we had fun! I know I had fun naming Vs. possibilities. Anyway, congratulations to the 7 joint winners which all tie for 1st place in every category! HOORAY! See you next month for GirlFlash’s Mini-LD #2.
For those of you who care, I didn’t get to finish my game. I had to work today (which I didn’t expect) so I couldn’t stay up late… that, and there is an xbox 1m away from me.
This was my first ludumdare (although I have followed the previous few closely) so I didn’t really expect to finish. At least I’ve learnt a lesson for next time.
It’s Done! sort of…

Download Linux version

There are a whole lot of things I wanted to add but couldn’t. I’m pretty happy though about getting sound working and doing some halfway decent tile collisions for my first time.
**UPDATED** made it a little harder and improved particle performance, also jacked up the timer freq. for particle events.
I chose to chronicle an epic battle between two unlikely foes.
Q, W – Move left boat
O, P – Move right boat
SPACE – Fire maple syrup
I only got to work on it for a few hours. Many unexpected things came up this weekend. I listened to Opeth and Bloodbath the whole time, so I was able to get a good bit done I guess.
I hope you enjoy it, and I hope it works.
Okay, this is my first time doing a Ludum Dare and I have to say that I loved the experience. For my game I choose to do Leon (Resident Evil 4) vs. Sin (Final Fantasy X).
There were three other levels, two other monster types and a boss that I had planned and didn’t get to add. Maybe I’ll continue work on it over the next week or so.
Leon vs. Sin Download Choose Easy to start with. Just do it.
Well I am new to Ludum Dare so hi everyone.
Wanted to participate this time but now when there is almost no time left and my mini project being far from playable stage… Ehh… But in some way it was fun. I even wrote some weird maze generator. You can see flash version here.
Idea was about “Snake Vs Pacman” where you play a snake in a maze and hunt down Pacman’s which try to run away using some path finding. When you eat Pacman you grow your tale which you can use to block pacmans runaway path. When you eat all the pacmans in a maze a new one is created with narrower corridors and more pacmans. Also there was idea that there may be some mushrooms that makes pacmans enraged for a while so that they can eat of your tail.
Well i made some mistakes in path finding and after 16 hours awake i don’t have any working brain cells left… May be i will upload this bugged version tomorrow or latter when i finish it or something.
Good luck to those who are still finishing their game worlds breaking gods 7 day record
Yes, I dropped out because:
- Way too many distractions this weekend (two of them being Lego Indy and Mario Party )
- My RPG Battle engine had a weird bug, and I didn’t want to spend forever fixing it.
Hopefully I’ll stay more focused next LD Looking forward to playing ya’ll’s games. Who knows… maybe I’ll make a game in 30 minutes real quick?
Done, multiplayer only… read the readme.
This might be my record for least finished LD entry (of ones where I actually bothered to submit anything), but here it is! There’s no game here, you can just hop around on 3 ships a little bit and then exit. PRESS Q TO QUIT! Z is jump, and arrows move.
You can download the awesome windows EXE here: Miyamoto Download (712kb)
Enjoy your hopping!
Requires pygame and pyopengl.
If someone with Windows could create a py2exe, would be nice.
Also made a complete playthru video just now:
Well, I haven’t done anything except moo at #ludumdare, and come up with a few ideas:
verse versus verse – noah vs moses using some quotes from: http://www.cracked.com/article_15699_9-most-badass-bible-verses.html as attacks.
triangle man versus particle man – from the good ol ‘particle man’ by ‘they might be giants’. simple fighting game, particle man is indicated by a magnifying glass and just can’t win.
? vs ? – type names for each player and the first google image search result for each name is the sprite used for that player.
I’m imagining these as basic ‘street fighter 2′ type fighting games, with juwhich is among my least favourite genres, so I haven’t been too motivated to code anything. Triangle man would be easy and a bit comical, mehbe.
Well I’m drinking coffee so that’s a start.
Update: oops, thought I posted this yesterday. well it’s sunday morning and no code, so I wouldn’t expect anything from me.
And there’s a good reason! I spent at least 8 hours of yesterday stuck at one spot in the game – dealing with the + and – signs of camera position versus ship position (the ships are like individual tile maps, but those tile maps are placed in the world… kind of inspired by DrPetter’s Swarming Of The Machines!) versus player position versus waterline. It is a trivial problem, solved in the end by swapping some signs around and actually watching which way things move (or, more quickly, by drawing a simple diagram, which I never did). The reason I spent all day on it was that I was watching TV and not even trying to think about it. Just haphazardly flicking values every so often. I don’t think I’m very dedicated to this project. But I’m gonna try some more today!
Once I finally stopped TV for a second though, I nailed that and now I have Miyamoto running and jumping along a set of 3 boats, quite successfully. He has no animation, but whatever. I think I will add enemies and things you can stomp to sink the boats today. I’m not feeling very pressured. The unofficialness is getting to me!
whoever wins… I get a friendship bracelet!
I’m definately starting a bit late, so I dont know if I can get anything done in time, but the idea is that you play as pedro and try and get people to vote for you before they are attacked by facehuggers (^.^)
You can know enter the shop and upgrade your weapons at the end of each round. Still need to add the ability to buy sentries and repairmen.
Spent way too much time on the gun graphics (not including the rocket launcher and cruise cannon) and doubt I will have enough time to finish the game since I have to work tomorrow and will have to get a good sleep and wake up early. :\
This is my first Ludum Dare. I really like the theme and rules so I jumped in this time.
… so I stalled right out of the gate trying to pick a good pair of characters to face-off against each other. I had all kinds of ideas. My trouble was picking one and sticking to it. It’s definitely a fun theme. I picked Frogger from the 80′s arcade game and Master Shake from Aqua Team Hunger Force.
I like frogs and Shake is the perfect villain.
I picked a single-screen 1-on-1 duke-it-out style game with projectile and close quarters weapons. I haven’t done a 2D tile game before so I kept it simple: no scrolling, 1 screen, no OpenGL acceleration. it looks like the OpenGL acceleration isn’t that rough to add. I won’t have time tough.
So far I have a primitive particle system, my 2D tile drawing and loading from text files, and a simple sprite animated character. The mouse is used to aim the projectile weapon and fire. Keyboard moves left/right, jumping, change weapons, and can also fire weapons (as well as left mouse button).
The big stuff still to do:
very primitive collisions – rectangle-rectangle at tile level for jumping & weapon damage.
sound and sound content – this is a biggie for me. I haven’t messed with sound much before.
Draw Master Shake sprites
Draw “slap fight” hand-to-hand combat tile/sprite animations & add hand-to-hand game logic
