    Still jamming

    Our team for the LD 30 Jam is still going strong, 15 hours to go. The game is about – you guessed it – connecting worlds by building bridges. The cultures that live on the worlds evolve based on the resources you provide them access with. Simultaneously, the evil enemy culture is growing without your influence, and your goal is to nurture the friendly cultures to a level where they can defeat it.

    The evil empire is growing! Nurture the other empires to defeat it!

    The evil red empire is growing! Nurture the other empires to defeat it!

    Can’t wait to see what everyone else has done with the topic! :-) But first, the UI and controls have to be finished and the game be balanced. Also we encountered some interesting ideas and techniques which might make it into a postmortem.

    Fart sounds were by my mouth, not my bottom

    Tap to Flap


    • I only had 24 hours so I went sleepless. Too excited to sleep.
    • The physics of the bird was the hardest to tweak. It still needs a lot of work
    • Procedurally generated world.
    • Fart poo noises was done by my mouth, not my bottom.
    • Music was done with garage band

    The first night,since theme annuncied, here in Spain is really late, 2:30 am approx, i spent like 8h creating a mongodb server with php api rest to realise next day that it would take another two days to be implemented.
    So, I moved to appwarp server for Unity for the first time after analyze all the other options like photon cloud, smartfoxserver etc
    The demo was working, i added all the assets, and did some coding all the day until now, barely sleeped, the project got corrupted in a physics online loop in the editor and i was in pain, lucky me i recovered the files this morning and now the only part left is to finish some online mechanics and scores ,etc
    Hud is done, also character motor and cool rendering with mirroringimage fx.

    My first ever Ludum Dare! I was dared by a coworker to enter and make a game on Friday!

    Enjoy playing Jacob’s Ladder here!

    Jacob’s Ladder is an attempt at meeting my goals here.
    I have had many successes through the last two days!

    JacobsLadder Screen Shot 2014-08-24 at 2.25.05 PM

    [x] Intro Splashes / Animations
    [x] learned to make materials / textures / normal maps
    [x] GUI Buttons
    [x] city maze : Jacobs Ladder level
    [x] Audio, Music, Sounds
    [x] Credits
    [x] Secondary Main Menu / SubMenu
    [x] how-to-play / controls / input
    [x] footstep sounds triggered when walking

    Didn’t get around to adding :
    [ ] skybox
    [ ] Cross Maze Level (from brainstorming session at start of LD30)

    I surprised even myself on what could be done it such a limited amount of time. I learned a lot and can now add the scripts I created to a personal script library to use in other game dev projects!

    Ludum Dare For The Win!

    First Ludum Dare complete!  WOOHOO!  Still didn’t have the whole 48 hours for this but did the best with what I had.  I did have a single player mode in but had to yank that out at the last minute.


    Hope you all enjoy!

    Yipieee! Its done <3 "World Connector Club"

    Sunday, August 24th, 2014 6:04 pm

    that was really hard work… but i finished it. Im so happy now <3

    this time I focused more on the presentation, so the actual gameplay is not very complex.

    its also very short… you can play through it in 2 minutes. but if you want more score you must play longer.

    its a bit arcade like..

    The World Connector Club is waiting for you ;)

    and again the game is a bit strange…XD

    Ended up moving the project over to Unity 3D 4.6 beta, but managed to fix my code pretty quickly. The most important thing right now- this junk ship shoots, and bullets kill things.

    Almost Done!

    So I’ve finished my game, it’s still far from a solid good game, but I do not have the strength to continue :D. There are missing sounds and I didn’t make any music(I’m just not able to make good sounding music) but there are core mechanics and I think enjoyable gameplay. So hopefully you’ll have fun.

    Libra is a simple platformer shootemup about a guy who’s trying to liberate space city named MultiCity and its connected counterpart Farmland from an evil army.

    Made with Unity Engine, Gimp and Audacity. Programmed in C# using Monodevelop.

    Now I’m going to sleep :P

    Lorries in SPAAAAACE! First playable version

    Lorries in SPAAAAACE! is an interplanetary haulage management game. Buy space-lorries, and send them off to buy and sell goods between various planets. There’s no real goal yet, but I’ll be putting one in tomorrow, all being well.

    Lorries In SPAAAAACE!

    The game’s not done yet – I’ve decided to go for the 72hour jam rather than the compo, but the game’s done enough for people to play it (Unity web player). Enjoy, and let me know what you think! :)

    I don’t think I can make anything else today and so my “Two Worlds” game is out. Yay. It’s even playable and fun (sometimes). You can check it on compo page.

    In a few words – it’s a text-based strategy about two worlds, connected through the Portal. One has food, another has fuel and they trade with each other each month. But their resources aren’t infinite, so one Realm will fall at the end. You can choose a Realm to play with (and actually you can control the other realm if you want – buttons are clickable). Also there is an “automate” function – it will produce some goods and select trade option for both Realms – you just need to enable it and click on “Open Portal” button. Also there is a restart button in the top-right corner. Have fun :-)


    Well, time to get some sleep, 12 hours of work today and its finally a game

    I am stoked about how this game is looking. the screenshot is just the starting area. but the level itself is a very good size. All of the mechanics are in place except for the enemy spawner which I will write when I get me a little rest. I am a bit worn out after Tiled decided it wanted to crash 1000 times and one time lost the entire level, finally got it made though. Hopefully I have time before the Jam ends to squeeze in a little bit more detail, but either way I am happy with it.

    Next up:


    AUDIO! which should be the icing on the cake for my favorite creation.


    just remember, “Those who play in the realm of lost souls are probably already half-dead”.

    Nexxuz – Progress Report

    Once again, we’ve utilised our lovely Minecraft community (mostly children, we run a family-friendly server) to help us build our game assets for our LD jam. We’ve decided to make a Zaxxon-like Shmup with six levels, two enemy ship types per level and one boss fight at the end of each level. All game assets were built inside Minecraft, then exported through Blender, stripped of textures, and finally plonked into Unity for the actual game-making.

    Amazingly we wrangled 20 – 30 super excited kiddies into building our levels and sticking to our build rules (mostly), and got all of the building done in one day. Now for the most time-consuming bit; putting it all into a game.

    The Story:

    You’re the pilot of a little spaceship flying through space. Your ship gets caught up in a time-space anomaly and shatters, leaving you in one smaller version of your ship with the rest of your ship parts scattered across different dimensions. In order to recover your ship parts, you need to fly through the dimensions (connected via portals), shoot down the enemies, and recover each part – and each part will add to your ships’ abilities and let you complete the final stages of each dimension.

    Here’s an early early version of our ‘castle’ level;

    And a couple of Vines of the almost complete Ocean level;

    That’s how our space exploration idle game looks like at the moment. You will be able to manage ressource and population production, research space travel and discover new stuff!
