    Presenting — Epic Rampage

    Finished and submitted my first Ludum Dare compo entry.

    This little gem is titled Epic Rampage. There’s a huge ass primate, and a city, in one place. I think you’ll guess why it’s named the way it is. If not, you’ll find out when you play it. :)

    Backstory

    When I saw the theme ‘You are the Villain’ the first thing I thought of was sending my slaves dwarfs to their horrible deaths in a different, well known game. The second thing I thought about was a game I played when I was young. Very young. Back then everyone still used www. before every url, and Flash was still called Shockwave. On the Shockwave website there was a game, similar to this one, which I had tons of fun with as a child. Sadly, after some time, it vanished from the web, as so many things did back then. I could no longer remember the name so I could not find it again if it even still existed in some dark corner of the web. I made this game to try and recreate that experience. While it still lacks a lot in style and gameplay compared to it’s ancestor, I feel it comes close to the original feeling, and with some a lot of polish, this could turn out to a very brilliant gem indeed.

    Hey there, I’m Nik, and I’m a Ludum Dare first timer!

    I had no idea what to do, at first.  So I started to plan. The best thing I came out of was something to do with God, as he’s alone. So I emptied my mind into Game Maker, and created… a thing. This thing is called The Almighty Annihilation. It’s a 8-bit styled game where you have to wipe out the entire population of Earth with Meteors and Lightning Strikes. Sounds fun, right? Please tell me it is.

    I made the game in 21 hours, with lots of frantic rushing and developer’s block. I know it’s not the greatest, and it seems very basic, but please. I am slow and can’t be bothered most of the time. I made a game. Enjoy.
