This past weekend marked the 10 year anniversary of the Ludum Dare 48 Hour Game Competition. I've posted about the Ludum Dare challenge before.

This time, for Ludum Dare 23, the theme was Tiny World. Not only was it historic in the sense of it being the 10th anniversary of the LD48 challenge, but this is also the first time that 1,000 games have been submitted to the competition. As of this writing, there are 1160 games submitted and still about 6 hours left in the Game Jam.

This also marks my first entry in the challenge. I wasn't planning to enter this time, but halfway through the first day I decided to do it. And I knew I wouldn't have any time to work on it the second day, so I essentially had 12 hours to make a game (prototype). And I did! Then when I went to submit it I found out that my game didn't qualify for the 48 hour competition because I used some assets and things that were made by other people/before the challenge started. But it still qualified for the 72 hour Game Jam. It also meant that I had some time to work on it today.

The game I made is called Be Tiny, World! I'm considering it pretty much finished and I've already submitted it to LD.



Play it (or download it) here: http://btw.deozaan.com/
Available for Windows/Mac/Linux/Android, and in the browser.







If you're interested in watching me create the game, you can watch the timelapse videos:

More games were made last weekend than are available in the Steam catalog!

Also, someone made a wallpaper with images of all 1402 games:



Get one in your preferred resolution here: http://www.ludumdare.com/...with-all-1402-ld23-games/

Mine is at (7,10) if you think of the top left image as (1,1).

I want a webpage like that with each square being a link! Then I think we'll have a new winner for World's Worst Webpage!

At this rate we can probably make a page like that with all of the Big Brother new stories and maybe the Patent/Copyright ones too!

Not quite what you asked for, but it's the best I can do.

I saw that page - are you the webmaster of LudumDare?

And at the rate I'm invoking my Resident Pest status I'll have to donate another couple bucks soon! (Stop glaring at me Cody!)

Wouldn't it be as simple as (copyright aside) saving all the link art in one giant folder, then just forcing the image size down to whatever miniscule size works best, like 10x10? It feels like a really simple page, because it has no real layout, it's just a smash-up of a zillion pictures in a row times x rows.

I just had the idea at work to do it like that Lincoln & the Woman painting, where it is a woman up close, but the broad textures turn out to be a low-res picture of Abraham Lincoln if you stand back. In this case it would be Big Brother made up of a zillion links to all the news stories.

I'm *almost* good enough to write that if I had the art say somewhere else on commission. But I just thought someone knew how to blast it off with their eyes closed so to speak. (Really, it feels like under 25 lines of "real code" and then just the links and maybe a lot of BR's at the end of lines.)

(P.S. I can also smell an App at work that can take any picture and then per the settings of # and size of pieces, split the big picture precisely into that collection of link art for that page.)

I just spent the past couple of days porting my LD23 entry, "Be Tiny, World!" to Android devices. It's now available on Google Play.

I played about 5 of those games, then lost interest. In a way I liked the previous theme more, "Alone".

But of course this was about the time limit AND the theme. I have no idea what I would do with the theme of Small World even if I had a Coder.
