I finished a game!
I finished and submitted "The 'Great' British Weather" for Ludum Dare 25 in less than 48 hours. I am quite pleased. All details on it can be found here.
However if you just want to get on with it and try my game - first you'll need this to run XNA games - and then grab my game HERE! [Word of warning, some stupid XNA bug appeared when I compiled it, if you click off of the game window and leave it for more than a few seconds the game will go unresponsive. Ironically my game continues running, you just cannot interact with it or see any updates. So don't click off it! :P ]
Timelapse of the whole 2 days in a mere 3 minutes below (feel free to mute looping music.)
The theme for the Ludum Dare was "You are the villian!" Being British, I decided to take an every day villain to be my player - the weather. You take control of a cloud hovering over a group of festival goers. You must blow wind, rain and lightening on them enough to ruin their day; but don't scare them off! You can't have any fun without anyone's day to mess up.
This will be my first game jam, as well as my first Ludum Dare. I'm a Computing student in the UK, and I'll be streaming from my campus along with some other guys who are also taking part!
Was [Live] now for Ludum Dare 25!
