I made a ludum dare game called Pixel Ninja. The theme of the LD was Minimalism, so I made a game about a ninja made of pixels. You run around collecting blue orbs in the 2000 by 2000 block map. I’m waiting for a postmortem until my game gets scored, but I’m willing to make a prepostmortem. So a mortem I guess?
What went right:
- The art.
I can do pixel art, so I use it whenever I can. 7/13 of the comments so far are people saying “I liked the Ninja/art”
- The music.
My friend rytonbay did the music for it, and it’s great!
- It was a platformer.
I can make platformers.
What went wrong:
- My computer.
I needed to switch browsers to k-meleon during the LD just because I didn’t have enough RAM 😥
- My timing.
I had just finished an RPG session when I notice “Oh, right, Ludum Dare already started.”
- The theme.
Y U NO PICK GOOD THEME?
It feels good to get back into game dev again when I had been doing other things for a while now.
