Hey guys, here is my halfway-ish video update on my progress so far. Now the crunch shall begin!
Just drank something called a “JAVA MONSTER” so I should be good for a while yet! Really happy with the game so far. Hope I can finish it enough for other to enjoy it too! Just tested on my iPad and it working great. Video soonish
Hit me up on twitter (@travisirby I want to follow all fellow devs!)
This time I’m spending more time in polishing than to actual gameplay. I don’t know why, I guess I just felt like it. That’s why I already have an intro and music, but only 2 puzzles! Still, I really like how it turned out.
Every other game for Ludum Dare I was making 2D flash games, and now that the theme is Minimalism, I make a 3D game… Ironic, huh?
I wasn’t really sure if I’d be making anything this weekend. I’ve spent most of my time watching others on Twitch.
I’ll be adding a 2nd player and some particles. Not really sure if I’ll get to a titlescreen or anything. I need to clean up my website too. Forgive the ugliness at TrentSterling.com
Okay liking where this is going. Move the curves to collect the dots… But you can only move curves within the semi-transparent purple shapes and you only get a few moves!
looking to follow other’s progress on twitter! @travisirby
The maze is operational, has a minimum look, and you can walk around in it.
New Version online, now with an extra portion pot smashing!

Got a basic, ehm minimalist game working already, yay Minimalism and Unity. Please give it a quick go here and any and all feedback welcome!
Update on the game.
I’ve imported the assets that I created in Blender into Unity and created a basic, minimal scene. Added a first person camera. Some 3d assets rotate on mouse movement. Sound was added. I created this sound by tapped on my computer, then another layer of clapped, and another of slapping my face. I’m not a music person, but at least I’ve created some sound for the game.
Here’s some screenshots:
You can play this build in web browser here.
Windows users are also able to download the zipped version of the exe here.
This is early stages and I plan on working on it further tomorrow. At least its something.
I have a very busy weekend, but 26 is my favorite number. So, I’m going to squeeze in a maze game. I’m using Unity3D so it should not take too many hours.
So I’ve figured out what I want to do.
wikipedia claims minimalism is:
Minimalism describes movements in various forms of art and design, especially visual art and music, where the work is set out to expose the essence or identity of a subject through eliminating all non-essential forms, features or concepts
so I’m building “Break All The Pots!”.
so after some mesh reworking and frantic minimal texture drawing I got something almost “playable”
it even has a menu!
First upload is here:
(Unity3D browser plugin is needed)
Okay hitting the sack for a bit. Loving this so far! Excited to get back at it. Heres a short youtube of my progress so far (gameplay will be altering the curves of the landscape to collect the dots):

I’m going to make a 3D game, for the first time. I’ll use Unity.
For the last 2 hours i’ve tried to make my Character (First Person) run on a planet (sphere).
Her orientation is OK
I can move around, then it stops. It’s like i’m on the north pole and i can’t go anywhere else.
I should be so simple : a vector, 2 forces and the character control. I don’t know, and i can’t find help on Unity’s forum.
In 45 minutes, i change it for a simple plane.
Participating in the Ludum Dare for the second time. This time the theme is “Minimal” , not a big fan of themes that try to strip away or limit the expectations of developers. This is something you should always be trying to do in a game jam, you already have limited time to create. So the theme should encourage more ambitious ideas and then let those two dynamics balance out.
After a couple of hours of trying to rack my brain for a new design, I kept going back to ideas similar to my previous global game jam entry “Sleep Walker”. Instead I wanted to make a game with some challenge and game play loops that could add up to a meaty game. Finally came to the conclusion of the Minimal life of a pirate. It is very simple, your on a ship , if your off the ship your dead. I guess this where that cut throat attitude emerges. Combining those ideas into a rogue like meta game with some inspirations from “FTL” , Rogue Pirates has emerged and I am very happy to work on this over the weekend.
I get the feeling I’d be a lot more clever were I fully awake, but this is what I’ve got so far:
It’s a black and white game (minimalist…colors and…stuff…bluagh) where your goal is to investigate the only lit area. Of course there are obstacles (though right now they’re always appearing in front of the player’s original orientation, not necessarily between the player and the light, which is something I’ll need to fix when I can think straight again). So…tomorrow will be fixing the obstacle-creation algorithm and adding some sound…might actually be able to turn it into horror of some sort, especially when that first obstacle drops. Jump scares…or something…and if I still have some extra time I’ll try and make the light randomly move away from the player so that the game is more than half a minute long or so.
(I’m so frustrated that the last time I was contemplating doing a Ludum Dare I ended up making this…when really I should have held off on it until this go around.)
Thats an ingame screenshot. Thinking youll have to adjust the curves to get the ball to its destination….
Tweeting! @travisirby and want to follow all of you!
First Screen! Thinking about a bouncing ball, you have to alter the landscape to avoid traps. get the ball to its home… Its minimalistic home.
Tweeting! @travisirby and want to follow all of you!
@travisirby (hit me up i want to follow everyoneee)
Tools: Unity (ragespline & 2d toolkit) in the Compo…
Joining the Jam.
Myself and my girlfriend just moved into a new place so I will have to create something between building up shelves
The good news it’s much more quite in this place, so I should be able to focus much better.
I also bought 2DToolkit a couple of days ago so this will be the first real 2D Game I will try with unity.
Code: C# + Visual Studio
Audio: SFXR + Free Music
Frameworks: NGUI + 2DToolkit
Going to bed now, will start tomorrow afternoon.
Good luck and have fun
