Topics I've Started

A Villain's Demise

16 December 2012 - 09:38 PM

Hey! Another Ludum Dare is over, and I'm glad i participated once again. It has been an awesome event, and i clocked in around 16 hours of work this time, with alot more knowledge in my backpack! Thought I'd share what i ended up with.

Worked alot on tweaking the controls, getting the double-jump right, and the slow-time mechanic. It turned out fine, and i hope you enjoy it! Use "Esc" to return to the menu, or "R" to restart the level.

Share your highest score, and any bugs you may find :) You can also check out my previous LD48 entries here!

Feedback needed - 2D art

28 October 2012 - 06:23 PM


Not too long ago i started working on my project, called "Deluso", and before i set the art direction in stone, I'd like to get some feedback on the current art of my game.

The game is a 2D sidescrolling puzzle adventure game, where i do the art, the design and the code. Without saying too much about the concept, I'd like to hear your first impressions, and perhaps some more constructive, in-detail feedback where applicable.


So what do you think? Its basically a silhouette foundation, with a limited color palette - but still with great variations in terms of color use throughout the game. In addition to the ones illustrated above, there will be 2-3 more "themes".

Is using such a wide array of color themes a negative breach of coherency, or a refreshing take with contrasts? Is it too similar to the art of already existing titles out there? Am i onto something here at all?

Replay value vs one-time experiences

31 August 2012 - 01:31 AM


I'd like to hear your thoughts on this matter. The aspect of replay value, in terms of typical "one-time" experiences. By this i mean games similar to or in the same genre as for example Limbo. How important (if at all) is it with replay value in a game like this?

Have you played games like this, and craved to return only to play through it again? If so, why? I think its an interesting question, as many polished, high quality games i've played dont seem to actively encoruage to play the game all over again.

So basically, how important is replay value in this genre for you?
