Postmortem

This was the first Ludum Dare in wich I actually participated instead of just playing the games or watching Notch’s livestream ;)
As you know, I worked with Carduus so I could concentrate on the code while he was creating the art.
I also asked a friend of mine, Mathieu, to work with us on the music.

I’m sure I would be glad to read this in April, before the next LD, so here is my postmortem for this edition: read more »

Timelapses

During the event, Carduus and I have recorded our screens in order to make a timelapse.
Mine is not really interesting, as it’s mainly code, and hardly readable at this resolution, but check out the one Carduus made!

New version online!

I had time to add the alternate ending and the credits, I did a few minor corrections/tweaks and I quickly made a real page to house the game ;)

Also I would like to thank everyone who played the game!
We’re receiving a lot of positive feedback, that’s really appreciated, so yeah, thanks guys! :)

Here you go, enhanced version:

The game is released!

Wow.

This last day has been REALLY hard…

There is still a lot of little things I would like to change, and the alternate ending we wanted is not in this version, but at least we did complete a full version in time.
Those little corrections will have to wait though: can’t do any more tonight.

Thanks to everyone who commented, tested, and followed us during the jam.
Thanks to the Ludum Dare team and participants, it was a really great adventure…
Thanks to Motion-Twin for inviting us to its IRL gathering. Look at their games: Deepnight, Warp, Bumdum, and of course Eole ;)

I won’t hesitate to say “I’m in” for the next one!

Here is the link to the release version of our game:

Playable demo

After 48 hours, we still have a few things to do in order to release the game, wich is fine since we have until tomorrow (monday) night to submit it.

Still, we put together a raw demo (just 3 screens).
- There is no preloader yet, so be patient (~2Mo)
- You will start directly ingame, in a fast-action sequence (this will not be the case in the final version ^^)
- There may be one or two bugs left (all right there are…)
- The scaffoldings level cannot be completed (yet)
- And there is A LOT of refining and tweaking left to do, so.. yeah.

And if you still want to complain about this unfinished demo, here is our answer :D

New music track and a few screenshots!

New fabulous track here: Chase

Since we’re participating in the Jam, we officially have 72 hours to release the game instead of 48, but we’re trying to make it anyway.
We might have a hard time trying to finish tonight (less than 7 hours left) but hopefully at least we won’t have too much to do tomorrow.
Stay tuned! :)
