Naturally Selected 2 brings you a particle overdose!

MLD50 Entry: Natural Selected 2

ns2d-bar

“Left by his team, this marine has been naturally selected to defend his commander from waves of Sulks and Gorgels. He must juggle his natural desire to shoot things with an overzealous jet-pack and resource greedy turrets!” 

It has become a whirlwind of particles. And I love it.

Natural Selection 2 is a strange duck; trying to be an FPS and an RTS as the same time. It’s a difficult marriage but a loved one by many. It certainly sucks up my time in more ways than one. Given the level my team is involved with it it was the only choice for a demake.

 Our first two man Ludum Jam, but I’ve been hugely enjoying the collaboration. @Flaterectomy did a great job on the art!

Wield the mighty jetpack!

Just a little roguelike-ish we’re slapping together to get a feel for Android games! Feeling happy about the product so far. Flaterectomy has done some awesome work on the art.

LD28 Entry Timelapse

You are Bob the Christmas Elf, tasked by Santa to solve world hunger by making sure each child gets -exactly- one piece of magical super filling candy!

One problem though, the candy is so filling, any more makes them explode!

Keep greedy children away from candy by chucking them off the screen! Loosen a few teeth and trade them in with the toothfairy to unlock the bonus level!

LD27 Warmup: Dubstep Hairdresser Coding Timelapse

Can you use this glorious toy to create and share the wonderful hairdo’s from your
dreams, all while the beat drops? Yes you can! Probably. I wouldn’t recommend it. Make bobs to the wobwobs.

LD27: Love Your Pets

Here’s a little timelapse for Love Your Pets.  Couldn’t get it finished during the competition. Been working on it post compo, still a lot to be done.

Pretty happy how the game turned out.

MLD45 Entry: Sword, Stealth & Sausage!

This MLD45 coincided with my girlfriend and I acquiring a freshly baked Puppy!

We’ve been in a perpetual state of pee dodging, sock changing, fragmented sleep, and overdosing on cute.

Still eager to participate but with diminished mental capacity, I tricked a friend into  ‘just making a game’ together. Bwoehahaha!

He occasionally sprites you see, but lacked a coder to get things out there. Each Ludum has been a great boost to everything I needed boosted, so figured he might enjoy it as well.

Out of this collaboration Sword, Stealth and Sausage was born, is a top down dungeon crawler/puzzler with a focus on a class switching mechanic to solve puzzles and a disturbing overdose of sausages.

Looking at all the other entries MLD45 entries it didn’t feel right submitting the game. It’s not exactly a text based Pac-Man. Instead we’ve decided to give it a proper polish and release it separately. It’s progressing great so far!

Tell us what you think!

Dev banter and some (low resolution Twitch.tv) gameplay:

What do you think, should we use it for the October Challenge?

 

Ludum Dare 27 Entry: Love Your Pets!

                  

When a Captains dream of playing fetch is crushed by Xenomorphs in the bulkheads of the SCC-Benjamin, there is only one thing left for him to do: make the rescue quota and get the hell off this boat! 

I didn’t quite manage to finish as much as I would’ve liked, but it was entertaining to make nonetheless. I hope you enjoy playing it! 

Required: Java 6+, OpenGL. Tested on Windows only, might work on other platforms as well.
