Hey I was wondering if anyone has some advice for me. I have wanted to make games for the longest time but have never really managed to make anything. I have plenty of crazy ideas. I am a pretty good coder. I have a friend who makes great art and i can make okay placeholder art. For some reason I can never manage to actually make a my own game. Either it goes on for a while and i lose interest/the idea starts to seem really bad, the game works partially and then it hits some sort of road block, or I just cant manage to organize everything well enough to get the game made. I was hoping that at least one of the indie develops who does ludum dares could point me in the right direction with some of their advice. Any advice would be great and if I ever manage to make a game I will ensure it is available to the entire community.
Hey guys, I have bulit my game called XParkour, and I put it on sale on itch.io!!!
If you would like to check it out, here is the link:

Hi guys and gals, I am back. After my extremely long time away from game dev xD. But yeah, I am working on a new game. Called Space Life(Don’t know if that is already taken but I don’t think it is) it is a 2D clone of 0x10c( “nought to the ten c” ) which “Was” a project notch was working on before he scrapped it and said he would rather work on small games. Although, it has the communtities touch to it. It is set very far into the future. Too many numbers for my brain to remember xD.
But yeah, I was thinking if you guys could give me any ideas on the game-play. Remember this game is set in the future, so please don’t add anything like “Wooden Slingshot” xD. Also, the game is a RPG(Role-Playing game). Just to keep that in mind. So the game will vary in classes, races, skills, vehicles, weapons, personalities, planets ETC. The game also features an on-board computer(Like notches D-CPU, only that it is more futuristic and no-way features any of notches storyline ETC). So here is a thing of things you guys could possibly add to it:
- Races(E.G. Humanoid, other “Off-world” species)
- Classes(E.G. Smuggler, Soldier, Civilian, rogue, pilot, what ever you can think of :P)
- Planets(E.G.I plan having a lot of these, so every type of player can “Fit” into the game)
- Random Encounters(E.G. Ship failures, Smuggler raids on your ship, going into a black hole)
- Currencies(Different types for different planets)
- Languages(For different races/species)
- Weapons(Guns, Ranged, Melee(Any type of weapon))
- Background stories of Characters and planets
- Types of Music people listen to in the world
- Dating system(E.G. Calendars, time keeping(How is this done on different planets?)
- Anything else you would like to add
Remember, I want the game to be everyone’s idea. You guys can shape the world, add things, remove things ETC. Just no bad things…
The help is REALLY appreciated

P.S. You can also mail me at email@example.com if you have any further queries or things you would like to add.
This will be my next game, called “Mighty Retro Zero” (provisional name).
As you can see the player looks like a minimalistic and pixelated Megaman, and after the Keiji Inafune clone called “Mighty No. 9” well i decide put this name that can be changed in the future.
Here the last video featuring the Arkanoid based level:

Come on in, although I can’t promise many people.
Mods of Ludum Dare, feel free to contact me if you want to have an owner status or make it official.
I would like to show you some new screenshots from my current project called “Artificial Mind”!
Make sure to share your opinions and ideas!
Let’s face it, most of us listen to music while making games. Plug.dj allows you to listen to music as a community. Anyone else up for an official Ludum Dare plug.dj room that would be similar to the IRC, but with music instead of chat? I think this would be neat during the competitions themselves, and for random times.
A while back I tried to make a worm game, But created this instead.
You choose a color (Through spacebar or the 123 keys) and overlap to make more vibrant colors and move around to draw,
See an example:
So I’d just like to see your thoughts on this “thing”

Hey all! I wrote a game framework for the creation of 2D games. It’s written on top of LWJGL for OpenGL bindings (meaning it’s super fast!). Here’s a link the GitHub repository, if anyone is interested in helping me out, or you want to try it out. Here’s a quick example of a platformer I scratched up in 20 – 30 minutes, it uses modern OpenGL for rendering – but in this gif it may be laggy, since, well, it is a gif.
During a past compo, the LD#22 if I remember well, I tested and rated a game that I really liked.
I would like to find that game back, but I didn’t found it by browsing, so I was thinking to see my past rated games.
Is there any way to do that?
Team Quadratics is proud to present the first demo of our newest project, A Family Affair, a game about an ongoing Mob War in a small city. Designed for the Stemfuse Spring Got Game Competition, A Family Affair strives to combine the tactical thought of a turn based strategy game with the quick reflexes and skill required for an action platformer. Although this initial release is somewhat unpolished, especially in regards to the AI, we are planning on continuing development over the Summer to improve the game. In the mean time, we’d love to hear your thoughts on the game so far. Also, we’d really appreciate it if you could take a quick moment to vote for A Family Affair in the competition. Every vote counts, and we’d really appreciate your support.

An idea that came up for me during a few ludumdares combining a tile matching puzzlegame with anagram solving. I never did end up using the idea during ludumdare itself, but I did make the game, which is currently available for free so I thought I might share while I’m still in a good mood before the current LD results are announced and I go into depression/hibernation/the liquor cabinet:
GemWords is currently free for Windoze/OSX/Android from http://voxel.itch.io/gemwords
As I received a lot of good feedback on my LD29 entry, “Oh My Oilrig!”, I decided to continue working on it. After rewriting the whole code base, I added more features and designed stuff for upcoming updates. Now, the first release version is up in Google Play! If you have an Android device, go grab it and tell me what you like ^_^ –> https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.manabreak.oilrig
Thank you so much for everyone who played my entry and gave me awesome feedback, wouldn’t have done it without you guys and gals.
