A few weeks ago we held a game jam
in which some people participated in Ludum Dare 17
. I ended up throwing myself into the competition when the theme was announced, and thus began another incredible journey of 48-hour game development. You can witness this journey from start to finish right here!
After the dust cleared and the voting was over, the top 20 games
were posted. My game, Gaiadi
, ended up getting first place overall! I'm a little surprised it turned out so well, and incredibly honored by the Ludum Dare community. You guys are freaking awesome and it's incredibly motivating to have something like Ludum Dare around. You never know what you're capable of until you have a deadline of 48 hours to make something awesome.
I encourage everyone to check out future Ludum Dares, and make awesome stuff. I intend to continue work on Gaiadi and I'll be attempting to make it into a full game sometime in the future, so stay tuned!
