It's that time of... time again. It's time for Ludum Dare 26! If you don't know, Ludum Dare is a competition where you have 48 hours to make a game from scratch.

Who here's entering?

I am. This is my first time and I'm pretty excited. I've never made a game in two days before, so it'll be interesting to see how it goes.

Just in time for the Jam too - anybody finishing a game for LD is eligible for the Jam (provided you enter it).

Yeah, I was thinking about doing that myself. Though I don't expect having much of a chance placing considering it'll be made really quickly though. :)

I'll probably be a little too busy working on my current Jam entry. :o I've gotten far, so I want to finish this one and finish it right.

Weren't you working on some platformer for this Jam specifically?
Do NOT PM me your questions, because I likely will not respond. If I have replied to your question on the forum, keep using that topic. Thanks!

I was. I couldn't figure out how to make it fun using the mechanics I had.

Hey, both those games are pretty neat! I made an artsy game for LD26 named "Minimalism in Art and Music as a Game". It's perhaps a gamification of minimalist ideas? I'm not a ponce, honest.

Sorry about the essay on 'how to play' through that link. I'm tired and ought to work out a way to explain the game more succinctly.

My first Ludum Dare game, had loads of fun making it! Much love to Stencyl for allowing me to actually do this kind of thing!

I made a platformer named Persist. A small tale of forgiveness and redemption.

I wanted to bring the minimalist theme into the gameplay too, progressing is a bit different from your usual platformer: The further you get in the game, the more skills you actually lose along with the character's various body parts.

hey superperplexicon could you write a summary of how you achieved the black/white switches in the level? they are pretty awesome! Do you have 2 levels for everything?

Hey! It's simpler than it looks I think :)

* Scene behavior that contains an event called "ToggleState". This changes the animation frame of the tiles in the scene to 0 or 1, and sets an actor property 'colour?' to "Black" or "White" for every actor in the scene.

* Each actor has a behavior that is constantly monitoring it's 'colour?' actor property, and changing it's animation on whether that's set to 'Black' or 'White'.

* Each different animation can have different collision properties, so blocks can be passable, enemies unkillable etc, depending on their animation state.

* Switches trigger the "ToggleState" event.

* "ToggleState" also draws a circle with a decreasing radius, with the blend mode set to "Invert", which gives it that cool wipe effect!
