Ludum Dare 11 Time Lapse!

Here’s a time lapse of my desktop as I competed in Ludum Dare 11.

I know, the screenshots got cropped. The program I was using to grab them wasn’t grabbing the whole screen. Sorry about that.

And yes, there’s a whole lot of downtime in there. I’m married and I have three kids. My wife made a pithy comment about my participation, which you can see in the video.

Ludum Dare 11: SUCCESSFUL!

I am so weary now. But it’s the weariness of VICTOLY!

The final glorious result.

I lost about four hours this afternoon because of family obligations; I kind of assumed that it was over for me after that. But when I managed to get back to my computer I hunkered down and finished what I started, adding very few new features – and it seems to have turned out okay.

Download it here. Game and source are included.


Ludum Dare, 8 hours to go

Did Viridian bite off more than he can chew again? OF COURSE HE DID!

Frankly, I don’t know if I’ll be able to finish. Using treasures in rooms requires a tag system and I don’t know if I can finish one and get all the tags on the map and debug them in eight hours. At the very least, I should have a complete game where you run around killing monsters and getting treasures…but I wanted so much more.
