I got this so far

A Jam only works for me in a relaxed way.
Spend some hours with the family, eat properly, distract for a few hours…

This is the result of my work since the jam begun. However I’m a bit lost about the game’s objective.
You can basically shoot vinyls at vinyl players so they calm down and stop attacking you. But that’s it and it would be sad to have a boring game in the end, after all.

I’m proud of participating on my 3rd official Ludum Dare! December 2012 and July of 2013 was very memorable events.
When the clocks hit midnight here, the competition will be officially started! 😀

Construct 2, Bfxr and Inskcape will be my only partners this time. New competitions always brings new experiences.

Good work everyone and… let’s do this! ^^

I don’t like the overall rating

The overall rating should be calculated based on all other specific ratings. It just feels strange.

English spelling mistakes

Me and my friends made a typing game, but it contains grammatical errors.

Does it falls on the “typo” category? I mean, since typing is essentially the gameplay, I wonder if we are allowed to fix that for the Jam.
No features added, just words being corrected.

Any thoughts on that?

If you are the kind of person who like to immerse on deep, sad and atmospheric music, while absorb thoughtful messages, this game is for you.

… it’s a killing bug, blocking proper game exporting.

7 hours left and I’m desperate.

What do you live for?

Me and my friend rambled for lots of gameplays, but we’ve been agreeing ever since about the theme.

We will try to make something insightful, were 10 seconds means a lot for you.

What’s so special about this edition? Friendship! The first time I jam with someone.

Construct 2 is my tool, he will be in charge of the sound.

Never used it for a competition, nor do I have much experience on it. But the fun of jams lies on the adventure.

Good luck everyone!

Second LD

Sweet vacations, it will serve me well this time. Because it’s also Ludum Dare Time!

My second challenge.

Gonna run for the Jam with Pygame and some sort of engine I’m building myself. Paint.NET will be my friend for graphics (and maybe Photoshop, if necessary) and will try Musicshake for music, but I’m a completely noob on making songs.

Good luck everyone!

It’s finished!

Noir Game is finished, with soundtrack everything working! You can play it already!


Just to note, my animation was made using the Pyganim module, since I used Pygame for the entire project (and the awesome Sublime Text 2! Really, you should try it!)

This is my first entry for the Ludum Dare and it’s pratically done!

Missing a nice background music and the final levels.
