Ludum Dare 23
April 20th-23rd 2012 :: 10 Year Anniversary! :: Theme: Tiny World
Kumiho - Christina Antoinette Neofotistou - Jam Entry
Our ship is called the Kumiho, or nine-tailed fox in Korean. It has the spirit of a spirit-fox inside her.
She will need to use her special telekinetic ability to the max, to make it out alive through this beautiful, once peaceful world, with enemies inspired by out of proportion animals and Korean mythology.
The story is that Mako the Progenitress Goddess has, out of anger, transformed the world into a speck of dirt. All creatures became half-organic half-metal entities, and only one Kumiho decided to battle against Mako's will, to save nature, becoming a ship herself. An evil 9-tail-fox spirit, the unlikely savior of the planet.
The way it ties in with the theme "Tiny World" is that the enemies are transformed wasps and bumblebees, and a flying squid. The Kumiho is a tiny ship.
Arrow keys > movement
Z > fire weapons
X > teleport a short distance towards the direction you are pressing OR
if you're not pressing any cursor keys, you're given the choice of 4 directions to teleport to. It's easier than it sounds.
A real test of what you can do in 3 days, with true pixelart graphics (only 21 colors used).
Loosely inspired by Korean mythology, this bullet-hell shmup was lovingly crafted by
Fedor Jutte ( did amazing coding and awesome level design )
Christina Antoinette Neofotistou ( made the graphics, animation and composed/performed the music )
We used Unity, Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Fruity Loops
