Ludum Dare 26 – Our Inspiration

Ludum Dare 26 – Our Inspiration

This weekend good friend and former study colleague Rene and I are taking part in Ludum Dare 26.

Ludum Dare is a game jam, a programming contest that is about delievering a small game in a short period of time to a common theme. We are taking part in the part of the competition that gives you 72 hours to finish a game. This time the theme is „minimalism“ and it was not easy to come up with an idea for it.

With the help of our friend Google we found an inspiration:

This picture shows several squares and we immediatly thought about making a game that looks a bit like it. We are aiming for making a jump & run game in such a world with a twist. Each of the squares you see in the picture has a colour – and each colour means that this square will behave in a very specific way.

I will show you pictures of our work in progress on Sunday.

Have fun. Rock on.
