Last weekend I participated in Ludum Dare, a popular game development competition to make a game in 48 hours. It was my first time doing that and I streamed the whole process. It was great to be able to share that and get encouragement and feedback throughout. Thanks to everyone who watched.
It was great fun and I will definitely consider doing Ludum Dare again. I’m also considering expanding on I Need The Cheese or I Will Die and making it into a more complete game. Some early ideas I have for expanding on it are:
– More levels
– More enemies
– Coin pickups for buying upgrades between levels
– Level select
– More variety in environment graphics and animations
– 20 second and 30 second levels
– Porting to mobile platforms
Let me know what you think of the game. I may even decide to sell the mobile version for a dollar or two. I think it could work well as a mobile game since it’s got such a quick gameplay cycle and the controls could work with a touchscreen.
