A few days ago finished the 31st Ludum Dare and during 13 days more games will be receiving votes to determine the winner. For those of you who don’t know about it, Ludum Dare is an Accelerated Game Development Event (also called a “Game Jam”).
During a Ludum Dare, developers from around the world spend a weekend creating games based on a theme suggested by the community, this year the topic was Entire Game on One Screen. Ludum Dare events take place three times a year (every April, August and December) and all game code and content must be created during the competition (that is, in 48 hours).
Ludum Dare has become a very popular Game Jam and this year 2636 games were submitted! This means a lot of fun for any video game lover. And we love video games, so we have decided to enjoy as many Ludum Dare games as we can, and bring our favorite ones to the blog before the winner be announced!
We want to begin this post series with Bluma, a platformer game developer by Luis Anton which has given us a good laugh and a lot of fun! It tells us the story of a space captain who landed in an unknown planet and now must reach his rocket to leave. The game is full of little puzzles, traps and blood, your own blood. We warn you, this game is hard, we mean, crazy HARD.
