    Gnome Guard was my entry to LD1 – theme guardian. In the game, you are confronted with a horde of small gnome children, and have to safely guard them home after school.

    The gnomes will run towards the green pillar, and avoid the red pillar.

    But only if they feel like it.

    Save The Hut

    Save The Hut was my very first entry into the world of ‘make a game in a low amount of hours’ compos. It was all about The Hut, and how to Save it from the hut-hungry alien invaders. The player had to make sure The Hut survived for a certain amount of time. To achieve this, stuff could be built, but there was a limit set by the amount of credits available. It played as a mix of RTS and puzzle.

    Featuring 10 levels, 8 bit palette graphics awesomeness, developed for DOS using Allegro and DJGPP, it placed about 14th. Its shortcomings seemed to be that people had trouble figuring it out, had real trouble passing level 3 (The Holy Cactuses, which was pretty hard), had trouble running DOS games, and also found ‘hold out for X seconds’ extremely annoying (because it sucks to fail at ‘2 seconds left’ and have to replay the level).

    You can download a newer, slightly improved version (for Windows) of Save The Hut as a .zip archive, or as an installer. Or, you could get the old compo version (for DOS).

    Ludum Dare #1, theme Guardian. My game, Trout!. Trout! is a game where you the blue fish must rescue the orange fish. Well… assuming they were in peril. Being the first LD48, I still hadn’t got used to how to best work in 48 hours. The game lacked scenery collision, making it no actual challenge at all. Beware the hook though. :)

    The game scored Bronze in the graphics category.

    Scarecrow: Heart Of Straw

    LD48 #1 theme was Guardian. I created Scarecrow: Heart Of Straw, a game where you play the role of a scarecrow, scaring crows (as they are wont to do) away from corn. I don’t know what Pellies it did or didn’t win. I think it did fairly well, and has a rockin’ crowmetal soundtrack and a mumbly farmer.
