Ludum Dare: Complete

August 25th, 2014 by

Well that was fun. Being my first Game Jam I can see where I went wrong. (So many mistakes). But I still finished something. I wouldn’t say it’s too awesome but it works. The game I made is called “World Lord”. It’s just a simple maze game with teleporters. You run around and collect power cores to activate the teleports to move to new areas. It’s very short, as stated above, things didn’t go as planned and I didn’t get time to make many puzzles.

Ludum Dare: Diary #2

August 23rd, 2014 by

The Ludum Dare so far; things are going pretty well. Most of the mechanics are complete. I’m now taking a break from coding and moving onto art. I’ve had a few redbulls and coffees, it’s starting to get late (10:30pm) but I’m still fairly wired. Oh by the way the name of my Ludum Dare game is “World Lord”. Unless I think of something better soon. Well back to work.

Ludum Dare: Diary #1

August 23rd, 2014 by

It begins! The theme is CONNECTED WORLDS. My brain is working overtime, whatever I decided to make I’ve got to stick with it. Can’t be too hard can’t be too easy.

Ludum Dare: Night before

The Ludum Dare is just moments away! Has everyone been getting ready!? Are you Pumped!? Are you Excited!? Good, cause I’m freaking out.

I spent my last night before playing ‘Left 4 Dead’ and eating Chinese food with friends. Might as well have some fun before the mega stressful Jam begins.

Very excited to see the theme released and hope it’s something easy I can work with. I’m going to go in blazing with no pre made content, so wether thats a good nothing or not we’ll soon find out, but the point is to have fun. At my disposal I’ve got my trusty Macbook Air, Wacom Bamboo, Dell side screen primarily just for code, heaps of coffee and energy drinks, Photoshop CC, Unity3D, Maya and lastly a decent set of headphones to block out the world (and get in my zone).

I wish everyone the best of luck, and even if I do horribly, I’ll have lots of fun playing everyone else’s entries. Now go kick some ass!

Ludum Time

August 11th, 2014 by

It’s that special time again when all the indie game developers get together and franticly smash their faces against the screen in a desperate attempt to complete their Ludum Dare game. Will you be taking the challenge? I certainly will.

The Ludum Dare is a very healthy source of exercise for developers. It enables them/you to take a break from your major projects and stretch your creative muscles once more. So often I loose speed and enthusiasm working on the same project for days on end, and great awesome new game concepts come to mind but I know I can’t start them otherwise I’ll have a huge pile of unfinished projects. You have to stay focused on the task at hand.

If you’re going to be participating in the dare, comment below and I’ll keep an eye out for your finished project after the challenge is complete. I may even post your game on the website.

Don’t know what the Ludum Dare is? Click here to check it out.

Also don’t forget you can help vote on the Theme of the Dare here.

Meet the Predator, a super fast, super strong zombie. This is just a concept character for our up-coming game, ‘Zombie Jack.’

Heres a little something-something I put together, nothing too complex. Just a HD Zombie Jack wallpaper (1920×1080).

Game development is going good by the way.
