We did it!
It took us so much time and effort to complete this little game and I am happy we were able to finish it. Well, more or less.
It’s the first time our team is taking part in the Ludum Dare jam, but it’s no way a disappointment. Check out our game, we hope you enjoy!
Two Roads is my entry for LD13 – Roads. It’s extremely simple to play, and you’d have to be sick in the head to not have the most fun ever in your whole life enjoying its extremely innovative and immersive gameplay.
POST COMPO UPDATE! This is not cheating! You can go ahead and download the 17mb compo edition below, or you can be smart and download the 5.4mb post-compo edition instead! It’s the exact same in every way, except all the sounds are changed to OGG files, and all the images have been converted to 256 color. The only code change was to change “wav” to “ogg” in the sound loading code.

Obviously I slacked off a lot this weekend, since this is only my second log entry… oh well. I hope you enjoy my game! It was a unique experience creating it.
Ludum Dare #3 (2003), theme Preparation. My game, PuffBOMB. Propel a hamster character to an end zone using bombs. Incredible Machine with explosives, burning, and screaming. :). The original compo version, unfortunately, featured only 2 levels.
PuffBOMB scored a Silver for sound, and came in 5th place for fun.

After the compo, I continued to work on the game over a couple weekends, adding 10 actual levels to the game. Also, adding custom level support, due to Stephen Stair offering to build a level editor. The game was later featured on several on several game magazine coverdisks.

Eventually, in 2005, I went ahead and fancied up the original game for submission to the IGF and Slamdance competitions. Changed the graphics dramatically, toyed with some graphical effects like a cartoony fire effect, white outlining effect, and so on. Added a proper menu, and ported the game to the Mac.
PuffBOMB was a finalist for the “Popcap Casual Game Award” at Slamdance 2006.
Today, development continues on the so called “super remake” of the game.
Ludum Dare #2, theme Construction/Destruction and Sheep. My game, Sheep Strike. Sheep Strike is a 2 phase game. In the first phase, you construct using Tetris blocks, a defensive barrier to protect the baby wolves. Occasionally getting guns as well. In the 2nd phase, using your guns, you’d defend the base from a bombardment of sheep coming from the sky.
The game scored a Silver in the Theme category.
Ludum Dare Zero (Beta, 24 hour), theme Indirect Interaction. My game, Fun Game. Contrary to the name, Fun Game wasn’t a fun game. In fact, it wasn’t anywhere near a complete game. The idea was to (hahaha) create a virtual pet game in 24 hours. Genius idea I do say. I did complete a bunch of art, and had a … sort of working user interface. All in all, not too bad a stab at a 24 hour game… just nothing worth mentioning.
