Ludum dare warmup

 

Ludum Dare is a great chance for training in making completed games. Given the time limits, you have no margin for straying around, only you and your idea. The skill i’m striving for.

Here’s the entry i’ve prepared for the warm-up event. It’s the first ever game i’ve actually completed.

Behold, the Gauss Flux!

The idea was to make shmup with the ability of building your ship on the fly from various details. Prototype has only one kind – cannons, but there are plenty of them. You also can attract and repel various objects.

It turned out to be quite enjoyable, so there’s a chance it will grow into something bigger. Who knows.
