    The OPifex team has been working on a gaming engine for the past year that I’m putting to use in the competition.

    To comply with the rules, I’m putting the engine into the public domain for the duration of the contest. All binaries, header files, etc are available for anyone to use during the competition.

    OPifex Engine Release 0.1

    To get an understanding of the engine you can check out the following blog posts which cover its functionality:

    OPifex Engine Part 1

    OPifex Engine Part 2

    To sum up:

    Game Engine   The OPifex Engine
    Platforms   Windows, Linux, OSX, Android (Ouya)
    Technology   C/C++ and OpenGL
    Goal  Create a polished game to put into the Ouya Marketplace
     (And to win of course)

    We’re doing it!

    Language: Python

    Engine: Pygame

    Code Editor: Sublime Text 3

    Distribution: Windows exe, Pygame source

    Graphics: Gimp, Photoshop

    Coding Question

    They say we have to include the source code, but I’m working in Multimedia Fusion 2, which has a visual coding system. Is there a way around this or a way I can get to a source code in mmf2?

    Hi everyone,

    This is my first LD. I have a feeling it’s going to be fun. :-)
    My tools: Unity3D, C#, Gimp,  Audacity. Consumables: pen and paper for taking notes, lots of post-its for keeping things organized, and something like a metric ton of butter cookies and chocolate to fuel my brain (sadly, I can’t drink coffee).

    I’ve had a hand in a few games in the past, but it will be interesting to see if I can actually build something complete in just 48 hours. My background is in design, and I’m also a half-decent programmer, but graphics are going to be, erm… placeholder-ish.

    I’m not going to use pre-existing code or assets, but I’m hoping to try out some ideas for programming patterns. If they work well, they may become a (shared) resource for future LDs.

    Can’t wait to play all the games!

    I’m in! Ludum Dare 29

    So yeah, me and a friend’s gonna bunk up together at one of our places and get totally cracking at this next weekend!

    Tools I’m planning to use: Unity, Visual Studio, Maya and Photoshop.

    I got a quite ambitious idea in my head, and we’ll see how it turnes out (or how the theme will change the starting point I got so far)

    Will document the progress using Chronolapse.

    I’m in… again!

    This will be my second LD48 attempt — hoorah!

    I will live-blog again on my website, smashware.com, and you can follow me on twitter @voidqk.

    I would like to use Unity… but I will probably end up using JavaScript and Canvas, since I can work faster.  We’ll see :-).

    Good luck, all!

    Hi fellow game developpers, I’ll maybe participate for this LD for the first time.

    I’m a Game Design student and coder also, so the graphics will be code-generated for sure ! :D


    My setup :

    • Framework: My own engine (core & tools)
    • Language: C#
    • IDE: Visual Studio 2012
    • Graphics: PS/AI CS6
    • Hardware : My old laptop :(


    Hope I’ll can get something finished, and good luck to everyone !

    I’m probably in

    Hello there. I’m a newcomer, so we’ll see if I can finish anything. I’m a spontaneous coder and hopeless artist, so I might just generate the graphics in the code.

    My kit

    • Language: Haxe
    • Framework: HaxePunk
    • IDE: FlashDevelop (quick testing)
    • Graphics: GIMP or procedural generation

    Good luck everyone!

    I’m in! Yeah!

    Hey guys! How’s it going?

    I’m in for Ludum Dare #29, and here is the tools I will be using this time:

    Engine - Unity
    Editor - Sublime Text 3
    Language - JavaScript
    Sound - BFXR
    Graphics - Paint.NET
    Modelling (if 3D) – Maya 2013

    So, my goal for this year is to properly finish a game. I feel as if I use Unity, I will be able to do so. I am not too happy in what I have done in the past, but I will work-around that in hopes to create something unique and beautiful this time around.

    Good luck to all, and most importantly have fun! :)

    2nd time participating, and looking forward to it! Hope the theme is good, there are some good suggestions in the voting rounds.


    Language: HTML5/Javascript

    Engine: Might use the Phaser engine, depending on the game

    Editor: Sublime Text 3

    Graphics: Photoshop CS6, or AESprite depending on how I’m feeling

    Music: Logic Pro X, cfxr

    Woo, web based stuff is the best! Good luck to all.

    Ready to go!

    Hi guys!
    I’m in again!

    I’ll join the Jam (more time, less stress, I still have a life) and I’ll probably work alone!

    Engine: Construct 2 Professional.
    Graphics: Paint.Net
    Music & Sounds: Still Idk.

    I already have some tiny ideas but it’s still too early to talk about this ;P

    Happy Easter and stay tuned!

    I don’t know how many Darers are Mac users, it’s sure not common to see them doing Twitch feeds. Part of the problem might be that it takes a lot of effort and fiddling to set it up properly. So for the benefit of everyone who’s interested in doing it, here’s what I’ve learned.
