Ludum Dare

What?  The?  Heck?

What is Ludum Dare?  Well, it's a game development competition.  There are two contests, Jam and Compo.  Jam is for teams, Compo is for individuals.  There are some other restrictions, but the most important part is that you have only 48 hours to create an entire game from scratch (no pre-existing assets, sounds, etc) for the Compo, and 72 hours for the Jam (Jam gets to use pre-existing stuff too).

Well, I joined in.  This was my second time trying, although last time I didn't finish so I didn't submit anything.


This is the link to my game.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  I'm going to continue to develop on it, although it will be in a different location since the Compo is done.  I will make a different placeholder as I add more features.

  • Different kinds of power drops (more power means longer games!)
  • Smarter enemies
  • Improved graphics
  • Improved sound effects
  • Soundtrack
  • Different dynamics to pick up energy pods

Just to name a few.  Anyway, figured I'd share with you lot, and maybe get someone excited to participate next time.  They run about 3 or 4 times a year, so keep an eye on it!
