Ludum Dare 23
April 20th-23rd 2012 :: 10 Year Anniversary! :: Theme: Tiny World
Poiesis - Them Games - Jam Entry
Tiny World was the theme, we wanted an original gameplay and got to work using photos of genuine old tools we had lying around, aquarelle painting and computerz graphiX.
The game itself centers around a scientist trying to create beautiful tiny worlds to offer them to his friends or sell them as living jewels. Plant weird trees, combine them together and mix them up with different minerals to try and create new breeds and crops...
The game is far from complete, we only managed to get the basics working, if you're interested in it, please keep in touch with us @ThemGames, new games are coming up from us in june and november !
Come play worldsmith with us, but be careful, poke too hard and you'll kill you poor fragile planet.
We're very sad to not have a little more time, but we went on a incredible 72 hours with our friends droping by. We'll post a recap of the process and probably a better version of the game on our site in the next few days (for now, we need sleep).
You'll find all that at http://www.themgames.net/ludumdare23.html
Update : The new version fixes various bugs, of course it was not done in 72 hours.
