  • Or you’d love to join someone for the weekend jam

Any let the #LD40 help fresh teams and nice games see the world =]
We’ll try to do some SMM for the cool games #MadeWithDefold

#2

I’m in, as usual. Only compo, only hardcore :slight_smile:

Defold+Photoshop+CASIO CTK-2400.


#3

Hey! I will participate on this LD with <3 Defold <3

Want to see what the games our Defold community can do just in 2 days :wink:

Good luck, guys


#4

I’m planning to produce something for LD40. The last theme stumped me so hopefuly this one will be better :rofl:


#5

I will participate if I like the theme!


#6

Don’t be obsessed with theme, or name, just make a game.
Many years ago, i’ve persuaded my cousin, that when he saw a “S” on the map in a game, it shows the way to our town (Sarapul), and he many times tried to reach it in GTA. So… the theme- is just a word, and you only must persuade players, that all the game is around the Theme :slight_smile:


#7

That’s been a pitfall for me in the past because most of the time the themes I’m most excited for don’t get picked.


#8

Hi! I’m game designer with large skills in develop games on construct 2/3. And now I want to learn programming in DEFOLD with a good specialist or team. :grinning: (I’m afraid to coding :sob: ) Also I can create a game graphics and sounds.


#9

This will be my second LD in general and the first one with Defold! I hope I will not be stuck on coding :scream: Good luck to all! :upside_down_face:


#10

Unfortunately I wont be able to attend this time :frowning:
Have fun guys and make some great stuff!


#11

Nice =] We’ll get some games #MadeWithDefold to play at #LD40

Also a friendly reminder. Or two…

  1. there’s a #gamejames channel at defold.com/slack to quickly synch when jamming
  2. there are some WIP templates that may help you quick-start your Defold project: https://github.com/britzl/defold-templates/tree/master/templates
  3. do add #defold or #MadeWithDefold when jamming, if care for us retweeting you a bit =]

#12

So I guess it is less than 24 hours to start, so may be time to get excited at https://ldjam.com? =]
The final rounds of voting for the theme is here: https://ldjam.com/events/ludum-dare/40/theme


#13

There’s a few interesting themes being voted on right now. I hope I have some time this weekend to create something if the theme is right.


#14

If everything goes as planned, I’ll be joining this weekend! :nerd_face:


#15

Theme: “The more you have, the worse it is”

I can think of a few games around that theme. Now I only need time…


#16

Germinator is my attempt at something for LD40. The aim of the game is to zap spreading germs with a laser before they take over completely. It’s not terribly original or enjoyable yet but the core gameplay is working.

How’s everyone else getting on?

#17

You could probably make this into a puzzle game where each germ you popped also grew adjacent cells so you would have to pop the germs in the right order to clear the board.


#18

I have an idea and an empty project… Hope to code tonight!


#19

Finished my effort. Well, as far as I want to take it.

Have a go - I guarantee it’ll hold your attention for upwards of 30 seconds :rofl:
