We’re at it again for the 34th Ludum Dare online game jam, a marathon of making a game within 48-hours solo, or 72-hours in a team. For our fourth real-world meeting, we’ve produced a record-breaking 8 original games! This Ludum Dare had two themes — “Growing” and “Two Button Controls” — and we’re excited to present the results:
Having decided that 48 hours is far too long to create a game, the game creation process has been optimized to a mere 60 seconds of pressing only 1 and 0.
Create art. Make design decisions. Tweak sounds. When you’re ready, test it. Share the game you made with your friends and enemies by sending them your generated custom URL. Make your own micro ldjam.
This game is played by choosing from only 2 options at a time!
It is a “choose your own adventure” style of game.
Game was made for the theme “2 button controls” and “grow”, but the growing part is kind of a stretch. You control an ant with a sweet tooth. Each level the goal is to collect the candy by selecting which command to perform.
The only two keys to play this game is ‘left’ and ‘right’…not ‘a’ and ‘d’, because that would make it 4 controls wouldn’t it?
Biome is a turn-based strategy game for two players based on Conway’s Game of Life.
The game is played on a grid with empty spaces (white tiles) and blooming spaces (green tiles). Each player controls a set of geomancers (red/blue circles) that can manipulate the terrain around them.
If a geomancer is standing on a tile when it blooms, the geomancer goes “KABLOOM!” and is removed from the game. You win by eliminating all of your opponent’s geomancers.
