Ludum Dare – Once again :)

by Grungi

As was the case 4 months ago, I took part last weekend in a game-making competition called Ludum Dare.

As a reminder, the goal is to create a game from scratch in 48 hours, which is quite the challenge. This time, the theme was “It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this!”. I managed to make a 3D game (a first for me) during that time, in what was a frantic but fulfilling week-end.

That’s the game in question. With unfortunate screen tearing when doing the screenshot 🙁

If you’d like to see what I was able to come up with, you can go on my entry’s page, or use one of the following links :

Windows (zip)
Windows (installer)
Linux (32bits deb)
Linux (64bits deb)
Mac OSX (zipped .app)
Source code (dependency : Panda3D)
ArchLinux (32bits)
ArchLinux (64bits)
There should be something for everyone there 😀 I’d be of course very grateful for any feedback you may have.
If you want, you can also read up the couple of posts I made during the competition (and after) on the Ludum Dare blog. I had a blast, and I urge anyone with an interest in making games to try and participate once. Not only is it loads of fun, it’s also extremely enlightening. Not to mention you’ll go from not having a game to having one over a single weekend !
